                    click and drag game

  • ONE RULE: DON’T CLICK AND DRAG UNTIL YOU FIND SOMETHING YOU LIKE!
  • if you want me to add anything just write me. i’ll add that and update the post!

I love all the click and drag games on Tumblr and after I read an article about diversity in YA books, I wanted to make a click and drag “game” myself. (i think this was the article, but i’m not sure, sorry)

sortabentglasses this is really freakin cool

this is so cool!


"When 12-year-old girls are watching something like the CW’s long-running campy drama One Tree Hill (which aired from 2003-2012), in which actors like 25-year-old Hilarie Burton played 17-year-old cheerleader Peyton Sawyer, they’re not seeing an accurate portrayal of their future on screen. They’re seeing a glamorized vision of some executive’s idealized version of high school instead. When a real 16-year-old cheerleader flips on the CW and sees fellow pompom shakers who look like Burton or costar Sophia Bush, also well beyond her high school years, they’re looking at themselves at wondering why they don’t look like that in their uniform. Here’s the secret: they didn’t when they were 16, either."


Things To Remember

wittyandcharming:

  • Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
  • Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
  • Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.

Philippa of Lancaster (1359-1415)
Art by Hannah (tumblr, deviantart1, deviantart2)
The elder sister of Henry IV of England, Philippa was a remarkably well educated woman for her day.  Her tutors included Geoffrey Chaucer, Jean Froissart, and John Wycliffe.  At the age of 26 she married John (João) I of Portugal and became Queen Consort of Portugal.  Their marriage cemented the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance, a pact of friendship that is today the world’s oldest alliance still in force.  
The children of Philippa and John are known collectively as the Illustrious Generation (Ínclita Geração).   Philippa’s oldest surviving child, Edward (Duarte), was a poet and intellectual who succeeded his father and ruled Portugal from 1433 to 1438.  Peter (Pedro das Sete Partidas) travelled extensively through Europe and the Middle East before returning to Portugal to serve as regent for Edward’s son Alfonso.  Henry (Henrique) the Navigator sponsored expeditions that established Portugal as a colonial power.  Isabella married the Duke of Burgundy and was influential in politics.  John (João, O Infante Condestáve) served as Constable of Portugal and secured the throne for his nephew after Edward’s death. Ferdinand became a popular saint in the Portuguese tradition after he died in a Moorish prison, although he was never officially beatified or canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. 
Scholarly and pious, Philippa’s influence reformed the previously licentious Portuguese court.  At the same time that she encouraged peace at home, Philippa encouraged Portugal’s expansion through warfare abroad.  Specifically, she supported the conquest of Ceuta in North Africa, a major port in the spice and gold trades.  Philippa died a month before the conquest of Ceuta.  On her deathbed, she presented her three adult sons with jewel encrusted swords and blesses them for battle.
