The 10 Phrases I’ve Stopped Saying And The People Who Appreciate Me For It (via Upworthy)
It’s pretty common for people to use disability metaphors like “That guy is crazy!” or “This weather is so bipolar” without giving it a second thought. It’s important to realize how these words and metaphors can affect people with disabilities and perpetuate stigmas surrounding mental health. If you’ve never thought about the impact these words can have, you’re in luck because this chart provides some common disability metaphors and easy alternatives!
ps. Special thanks to m-arkiplier for inspiring me to create this graphic! (and for his permission to use his post) For more info on why it’s important to be conscious of the metaphors we use, check out this HuffPost article ”10 Reasons to Give Up Ableist Language.”

Midday Must Have : Fall 2014 Nakimuli ” Leave it All Behind”
I’ve never had the opportunity to appearance fall weather but after seeing Nakimuli’s newest fall collection for 2014 I’m ready to pack my bags and ship off to a colder climate and leave this warm weather all behind !!
Crazy right? Lol I get that all the time, but honestly it has been awhile since I’ve been this astonished . The colours and the patterns have blown me away and the design on their limited edition reversible crop jacket is just absolutely amazing .
Above shows some of the pieces you will find when you visit their website ,available in sizes small -3X and ranging from $70 - $300 US.
Which of these items would make you leave it all behind?

I made The Witches’ Daughters for Terrestrial, an anthology of earth-themed fantasy comics edited by Amanda Scurti. You can also read it at its forever home on my portfolio website.
The anthology debuted at SPX 2014, and now you can buy it here! It’s full of lovely comics and illustrations, and I’m very happy to be included in such good company.

Valais blacknosed sheep. Although the earliest mention of it dates back to 1400, this large, docile mountain sheep was first recognised as a separate breed in 1962. It has adapted particularly well to life in the high Swizz mountains and grazes even on the steepest, stoniest slopes. The black patches on its nose, eyes, ears, knees, hocks and feet and otherwise light woolly coats make it quite unmistakeable.
