Working towards uuummm.. this weeks it's getting into a master's degree in fine arts. l put up sketches that will get progressively better as time goes by. oh and other peoples stuff that I happen to find and like for whatever reason.

Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.

I couldn’t have said it batter myself. And it was launched in 1976. It all fits.

The Lyrical portfolio of hio hop’s wealthiest artist

From Beats by Dre to Roc Nation Sports, the portfolios of the Forbes Five include a diverse range of investments. Birdman, Jay Z and Diddy have sought profits in liquor while every member retains some income through music and label activities. But what would these artists’ portfolios look like if they reflected the assets most frequently mentioned in verse?

Archaeologists Find Ancient Puppy Paw Prints on Roman Tiles
“The paw prints and hoof prints of a few meddlesome animals have been preserved for posterity on ancient Roman tiles recently discovered by archaeologists in England.
"They are beautiful finds, as they represent a snapshot, a single moment in history," said Nick Daffern, a senior project manager with Wardell Armstrong Archaeology. "It is lovely to imagine some irate person chasing a dog or some other animal away from their freshly made tiles."

“Thus did a handful of rapacious citizens come to control all that was worth controlling in America. Thus was the savage and stupid and entirely inappropriate and unnecessary and humorless American class system created. Honest, industrious, peaceful citizens were classed as bloodsuckers if they asked to be paid a living wage. And they saw that praise was reserved henceforth for those who devised means of getting paid enormously for committing crimes against which no laws had been passed. Thus the American dream turned belly up, turned green, bobbed to the scummy surface of cupidity unlimited, filled with gas, went bang in the noonday sun.”  ~ (Kurt Vonnegut)
