TREASURE IS AVAILABLE NOW!!!!
I completely gave birth to this baby on Tumblr and I am so psyched to share it with you guys. 
Blurb: Her sister’s bachelorette party is the highlight of a miserable year for Alexis Chambers, but once her bridesmaid’s dress is packed away, she’s back to coping with her life as a once popular athlete and violinist turned loner and the focus of her parents’ disappointment. She isn’t expecting much from her freshman year of college until she finds herself sharing a class with Treasure, the gorgeous stripper from her sister’s party. 
Trisha Hamilton has finally gotten the credits and the money together to transfer to a four-year university. Between classes, studying, and her job as a stripper, she has little time for a social life, until she runs into the adorably shy baby butch from the club. Trisha can’t seem to hide her feelings for Alexis, even when Trisha discovers what she has been through, but will Alexis have the strength to be just as fearless about their new love? 
 

here’s my wee baby. New Adult romance with young black lesbians because us queer black girls need our fluff too. :D

Reblogging for the early evening folks. 😀

BREAKING: Michael Dunn found guilty of first-degree murder in shooting death of Florida teen Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, the man who shot and killed Florida teenager Jordan Davis in November 2012, has been found guilty of first-degree murder.


Dunn was previously found guilty of three counts of attempted murder in a February trial for shooting at an SUV carrying Davis and three of his friends.
During that trial, the jurors deadlocked on the decision to convict Dunn of first-degree murder.
Tuesday saw Dunn testify in his own defense. The jury began deliberations early Wednesday morning.


From The Florida Times Union:

Dunn, 47, testified that Davis was angrily getting out of a Dodge Durango while holding a shotgun and threatening to kill him when he pulled out his own handgun and opened fire on Davis and others in the vehicle.

“You’re not going to kill me, you [filtered word],” Dunn said he yelled at Davis seconds before firing ten bullets at the Dodge Durango Davis was in.
Dunn said he was scared for his life and would have been killed if he hadn’t pulled out his own gun.
“I shot to defend my own life,” Dunn said at one point while testifying on Tuesday.

During closing statements, Assistant State Attorney John Guy reiterated that no weapons were found on Davis or inside the SUV he and his friends were riding in.

Some harsh but very very true words

When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble."this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…""this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…""there is better stuff on later pages…"It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time. Be proud.

This is really important.  Eliminate this urge.  Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work.  Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun.  Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work.  You lose the urge to do it.  You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat.  They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself.  Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work.  Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure.  If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work.  When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.

…..I’m so afraid for this baby. I wonder how they are treating her considering they didn’t want a black child to begin with

The article says that they love and accept her and that their suit is based out of concern for her specifically.

Essentially, the mother who carried her, as well as her partner, have bonded with her, but they have anxieties because they were unprepared for the racial nuance required for such a parenting experience. They go to Black hair salons out of town because they don’t know how to do her hair, and they worry about how to educate her properly about herself and the history in general, and keep her feeling loved and safe. But they also worry because their white family already has issues with them being gay, let alone their racial insensitivities. They recognized, thankfully, that while they may be able to avoid certain conversations about being lesbians by way of omission, that there would be no way for their daughter to obfuscate her mixed race identity. Nor should she have to be under such pressure anyway.

They have been given recommendation by their therapist to move to a racially diverse community and I think that’s what they’re seeking recompense for, financial means to do just that, so their daughter will have community support.

So thankfully, it sounds like she is very loved and cared for and they just want what’s best for her. They are under a lot of stress though because they recognize they are ill-equipped to deal with racism (the mother said shed only met her first Black acquaintance in college… so they are truly in an all white community as of now) but I’m glad they are aware because they will take consistent action, which is more than a lot of white parents of mixed Black children are willing to do, unfortunately.

Hopefully, they will be prepared for possible emotional damage that will arise when she finds out about this lawsuit. It may very well read, to her, she wasn’t meant to be born.

^^ this hurts my heart. I hope they are truly caring for her and not just saying that.

#DidYouKnow #Deaf #DeafAwareness #education #SignLanguage #advocacy #NMSCares

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.
