I’m trying to keep the spending down. For me this isn’t hard when it comes to things like cloths or extracurricular activities but books, they are my spending weakness. I’ve been doing well lately. I have mostly borrowed from the library and friends. There hasn’t been too many books I’ve come across I feel I need to own. I’ve been pretty happy reading them and giving them back. I’m very proud…

Toasts with the most: 21 awesome energy-boosting breakfast ideas

Dang.

BUT WHICH IS THE TOAST WITH THE MOST???

Please don’t expect me to always be good and kind and loving. There are times when I will be cold and thoughtless and hard to understand.

Obligatory picture of the stairs at Powell’s City of Books, the “world’s largest independent new & used book store.” They are not kidding. This place is well organized, but there aren’t just shelves of genres in a few rows. There are entire ROOMS of book genres. And when I say rooms, I mean spaces bigger than most apartments I’ve lived in. Great selection of board books for my toddler in the Rose Room, a collection of rare books in the Pearl Room, and yes they have a print on demand book machine. Also, they have vegan pastries & rice, soy or almond milk in their coffee shop, and they’re right next to Whole Foods & Buffalo Exchange. You got me again, Portland! Can I just live & die here please?

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them

Writing Trips #writing

When I had the money some days I would go to the MET. I would find a favorite painting, statue, or place, sit in front of it and write. Sometimes it was just a journal entry, an idea or a story. Sometimes it was nothing. When it was a story it was usually about what I stared at. I loved those days and miss them. I would go by myself. I could take the day and wonder wherever I wanted. There was no…

The only thing that would make these secret room bookcases cooler is if you activate them by pulling out a special, secret book :)
