quote When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

As a college student you’re either struggling academically, financially, or emotionally. Or all three.

Yes, well, it’s quite an extraordinary position to be in to sort of say, “Hello, I’m Peter, and I’m playing this iconic historically much-loved character that’s been around for 50 years.” - Peter Capaldi [x]

Half-Mourning Dress
1910-1912
The Victoria & Albert Museum

What’s a “half-mourning” dress?  Mourning in the front, party in the back?

Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning. 
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.

That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:


I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.

HOLY WHAT

MY MIND HAS BEEN BLOWN

THAT NEVER HAPPENS WITH HARRY POTTER

ESPECIALLY NOT WITH MINERVA MCGONAGALL

OMFG MY WHOLE LIFE IS WHAT

WHAT WHAT WHAT

Oh my god, she was GORGEOUS. 

WAIT WHAT WHAT’S GOING ON

If y’all ever thought Minerva was anything short of stunning when she was young, you have been fooled. This witch was a heart breaker, and could spell circles around anyone. Brains and beauty with that lovely lady.

How about some love for a good police officer?

Officer Gaetano Acerra

Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.

So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.

He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance

He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.

People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.

The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.

Mass produce this guy. There needs to be more of him 

I know a guy in Baltimore who puts a cooler full of ice and sodas and juice boxes in the trunk of his cruiser. He goes around giving out treats on Friday nights. He’s also one of the good ones.

RIP

Respect

I give a lot of respect to fictional heroes. I forget real ones exist.

More information on what happened here. He left behind a family as well. Heartbreaking.
