MY COMIC IS ON MY DASH, EVERYTHING HAS COME FULL CIRCLE.
So a while ago I came out with ‘mom, I’m about as straight as a Pittsburgh road’ and my mom didn’t quite get it at first but today we picked up my sister’s friend and my mom says ‘I don’t remember the way to your house being so windy’ and she says ‘yeah that’s one thing about Pittsburgh roads- they aren’t straight at all’ and my sister snorted so loudly

I love girly girls that wear bright colors and floral patterns and have long hair
I love androgynous girls with spiky hair that wear baggy jeans and sweaters
I love sweet innocent girls in sundresses with wide eyes and soft voices
I love hardcore girls with tattoos and piercings with attitude
I just love girls (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧
A few of you asked me how to do colored brows after I posted my rainbow eyebrow look so here’s how! :)
- Fill in your eyebrow with white liner. I used an Elf Eye Liner.
- Brush your eyebrow out with a spooly brush. This will remove any excess liner and coat all the hairs.
- Apply eyeshadow to your eyebrow in the desired color with a stiff angled brush. I used a matte eyeshadow from the Shany Bold and Bright 120 Eyeshadow Palette and a MAC 266SE brush.
- Clean up any mistakes with a Q-tip, apply the rest of your eye makeup and then you’re done, it’s that simple!
It’s nice to know how to color my eyebrows this way.
Now I don’t have to go through the trouble of dying my eyebrows, too.
SO GLAD I LEARNED THIS
I am a nurse. For 30 years of my career, I was a labor and delivery nurse. I took care of women through all stages of labor and through their delivery. Due to the many times that I have worked 16 hour shifts, I bonded with many women and helped them through long hours. Finally, through much work on the mom’s part with my guidance, she would be ready to deliver. In would sail the doctor, spend five minutes catching the baby, and then pose for all the pictures. I would hear from the families how wonderful he/she was.
Then why is my back killing me because I stood for two to three hours with a woman in a variety of positions including resting her foot on my shoulder while she pushed? Oh, and did I mention that she is also paralyzed from the waist down from the epidural, so I was also helping to hold her up while she squatted to push?
Why have I had to change my scrub clothes twice in a shift because someone either puked on me or amniotic fluid soaked everything?
Who is it that actually got that IV started while reassuring the poor mom?
Who is it that took the camera out of the daddy’s trembling hand and started taking family pictures because she knew that otherwise there would be no proof that he had even been in the room? And capturing the look of wonder on both parent’s faces at the same time.
Who is it that cleaned up every body fluid that can spew from a human, with a smile on her face and encouraging words for the mortified patient who has never been sick in front of a stranger in her life?
Who is it that tracked down the anesthesia people, chased them out of the lounge, and threatened them with their lives if they didn’t take care of her patient, NOW?
And when things didn’t go well, who was it that took that poor baby that didn’t make it, cleaned it up, dressed it, wrapped it in a soft blanket, and brought it to the broken-hearted parents to hold for the first and last time?
Oh, yeah, Dr. Marvelous is just great.
I’m just a nurse.
Nurses are so underappreciated, like, seriously guys. All of my best memories from hospitals as a child were because of nurses.
All the love for the nurses, who are the only reason I do not have unmanageable phobias around medical care, because they’ve been almost always been awesome.
My mom is a nurse and literally everyone in our family has at some point (and by that I mean every time she says something intelligent [and by that I mean all the time]) asked why she didn’t just “go the whole way” and become a doctor when she’s “so smart”. Like it’s totally I concievable that she wanted to become a nurse. The doctors at most of the jobs she’s had don’t even see most patients, they just come in to authorize things the fucking nurses do. And yet I watch medical shows where the HEAD NURSE of an ENTIRE HOSPITAL has an ENTIRE SUBPLOT about how she never went to college. My mom put herself through a great school with one of the best nursing programs in the country at twenty-five as a single mother of two children toddlers while on welfare and I had a teacher in high school who thought her job was changing bedpans.
It’s misogyny, plain and simple. It’s the assumption that a traditionally female profession automatically requires less skill and intelligence than a male one, and it’s fucking unbelievable that anyone with a functioning brain is still adhering to that bullshit. Grow the fuck up.
