Seems like IKEA are really shaking things up this year. In addition to the previously announced TV set, they’re also going to release a digital camera made of cardboard called Knäppa (“Snap”). It’ll hold 40 photographs at a time and plugs directly into your USB port. While it’s not the prettiest camera the world has ever seen, I do love the idea of a screen-less digital camera that brings people back to the wait-and-see days of film.

I am really into this.

Navy discharges African-American sailor for refusing to cut off her natural hair.

man, black people just get it every where…i’m sick of this

Im in the Navy and this shit is an everyday struggle. If you have any kind of frizz to your hair they want you to “fix” it. I can put a whole jar of gel in my hair and it still wont lay down but they dont understand that. They tried to force me to cut all of my hair off with the threat of going to Captain’s Mast (basically Navy court) for not doing what they said. Every time I went and got braids they forced me to take them out only to complain about my real hair being too poofy. You cannot win in the Navy with natural hair. It’s always a problem but everyone else with european hair can walk around with the most fucked up buns you’ve ever seen in your fucking life and it’s not a problem. All of it is pure bullshit.

I had a rough year. My studio got robbed. 11 years of hard work gone and my passion with it. My savings dried up. Behind on my bills. Made some new friends and lost some good ones. My father, the best man I ever knew passed away. Not feeling depressed, but felt down. I felt the bottom. Not able to be myself. Not able to be the best for others. I won’t complain. Life has a way if breaking things down to build them back up. I’m patient. I don’t question God. I just pray for the wisdom to recognize my blessings. I will be fine. I have to be myself. No matter what.
