Got a little depressed in August when I realized I couldn’t afford to take any of the art classes I was looking at (that were actually on days I could have taken them) and got stressed out waiting for hubby to find out whether or not he had any work from September on. The result was the office got piled up with paperwork that needed to be filed, art supplies that needed to be put away, and just junk in general. But hubby now has a full time job through the end of the year, I signed up for an online class, and I’ve had two days off so I was ready to tackle the office to try and get it back to the start point (and I’m posting pictures to remind myself what it’s supposed to look like.)

I spent three 20/10s working on it so far and I’m taking a long break now, mostly because the paperwork that need filing and the art supplies all go down in the basement which involves running up and down two flights of stairs and I can only do that so many times in one cleaning. Still have a bit more to so but the desk is clean! Hope to have the rest done tonight.

The goal for the rest of the year is to get into the habit of spending 10 minutes before going to bed cleaning the office so I don’t end up running up and down the stairs so many times in one cleaning.

WHERE DID THE TURANCULA (in the first picture) GO?!!!

He’s currently standing guard over the exacto knife that was also in the first picture in another spot so I don’t accidentally pick the knife up from the wrong end. :)

Been taking pictures of the flowers growing in a little island in the parking lot at work this summer.

they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck


badass.

I HAVE THE REASON!
Time for some physics bitches.
Men and women have different centers of gravity.  Men’s are typically around the chest, women’s around the hips.
When men try this, they are able to throw their center of gravity back at a high rate but can’t get the hips over the loop.  Ladies, however, are basically using their center of gravity to end the loop.
Ya’ll ladies are fierce as fuck, yo.

these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING
