I love japanese bc it’s so regular and logical. eg,

kore = this, sore = that, dore = which
koko = here, soko = there, doko = where
koitsu = this person, soitsu = that person, doitsu = germany

This week shall forever be known as that week when Nicole made multiple friends.

Designing a survey. In the demograhics section I ask for the respondent’s gender, with ‘male’, ‘female, ‘other/none’, and ‘prefer not to say’ as options. My professor edited it and crossed out ‘other/none’.

I hope the professor shits herself when she finds out that a significant portion of respondents identified as other/none.
It’s at 10% right now. Suck it.

THE TRANSGENDER BLUES: a mix to help punch that body dysphoria right in the face and to feel just a little bit safer listening to these jams than you do out there in the good ol transphobic world. PLAY

Marbled Tea Eggs from Kitchen Joy:

  • 6-8 eggs
  • 2 tea bags black tea
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 pieces whole star anise, or 1 teaspoon ground star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns
  • half of an orange peel

Directions:

Hard-boil the eggs:
    • Place the eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat. When water begins to boil, cover the pan, turn off the heat and let sit for 15 minutes.
Marble the eggs:
  • Using a slotted spoon or a strainer, remove the eggs from the water and run under cold water until they are cool enough to handle. Using the back of a butter knife, gently tap the shells to crack them evenly all over. Return eggs to the pot of water.
  • Add the tea bags, soy sauce, brown sugar, star anise, cinnamon stick, peppercorns, and orange peel to the pot. Add more water if needed to cover the eggs by at least 1-2 inches.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower to a gentle simmer . Simmer the eggs for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The longer you simmer them, their flavor and color will be more intense.
  • Remove from heat and drain the eggs. Peel and serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Hey, guys. I have a favor to ask. It’s not a huge favor, but it would mean quite a lot to myself and a friend of mine, and I would really love if you considered it, or if you passed this on to someone who would. 
I have a friend who is experiencing an eating disorder. She’s considered this sort of stuff for a long time, and has recently begun acting on her body feelings. She called me after she puked for the first time, because she was confused and wanted to talk it through. 
I’m super there for my friend, but I have no experience in these matters. Besides giving her super serious resources like hotlines, I can only really try to understand what she’s going through.
If you or anyone you know has gone through a similar situation, can you please send me a message? I’d love to get her in contact with someone who can give her support and information without judging her for what’s happening to her. 
I will make sure that your information does not get shared to the rest of my followers or to hers.
Please?
Thanks, all.
