"Judith Slaying Holofernes", by Artmisia Gentileschi

Story goes that Holofernes was an Assyrian general about to wreck Judith’s hometown, so she beheaded him while he was passed out drunk.

Do you ever see a picture, and it just sticks in your mind for some reason? I don’t know why, but this I remember this painting sometimes.

I once had a friend very obviously not listen to me until I had to stop talking and say, “Am I boring you?” And he just said, “Yeah, sorry, I’m just not interested in this topic.” And it was legit one of the most embarrassing moments I’ve ever experienced. Can you imagine someone who you though was your friend shutting you down like that? It’s not like I was interested in what he was talking about all the time, but I had the courtesy to at least listen to him.
Seriously, if you consider yourself someone’s friend, just listen all the way through. Even if it’s not interesting to you and you’re bored out of your mind, if it’s obvious this person is sharing their absolute passion with you, count yourself lucky that they feel comfortable enough to talk about it with you. If you genuinely want to be this person friend, don’t make them feel like they’re a burden to you just because you’re not interested in what they’re talking about. It’s rude.

Do you want a copy of Amy Poehler’s new book? Do you want me to pay for it?! Well, congratulations, here’s your chance. In honor of Amy’s book, I am giving away a $25 e-giftcard to Amazon so you can have a copy all to yourself! That should be enough to order the book and pay for the shipping, with maybe a little left over. You win and you get the gift card code which will apply $25 to your Amazon account.[Technically speaking you don’t have to buy her book you could just use the money but that’s on your conscience not mine.] 

Rules
you don’t have to follow me, although it is appreciated. 
have to have an American account for Amazon. The gift card won’t work for other countries. 
reblog or like this post. you can do it more than once if you want but don’t spam it because that’s annoying. 
This will end on October 19, 2014 at 5:00 PM. I will notify the winner that night, if I don’t get a response in 24 hours, I’ll pick again.

I’m 36 and I am at a really good place in my life right now. And when I was your age, in college, I wasn’t. So don’t you let anyone tell you that college or your 20’s should automatically be the best part of your life, or that growing up and being an adult means everything goes downhill. That’s bullshit. I am so happy right now as a middle-aged person. That’s totally a thing. So don’t worry about growing up.
My chemistry professor today, just out of the blue. I thought it was really apropos for all college-aged individuals. (via pineapplemountain)
