Queen Hatshepsut of Ancient Egypt. She has a lovely smile for someone who’s been dead for thousands of years.
she wasn’t a queen. she was a pharaoh and wanted to be referred to as such. she even had her statues modeled after the male pharaoh’s statues to state her dominance and authority. she was actually one of the most successful pharaohs in all of ancient egyptian history and she reigned longer than any other woman in power in egypt.
damn, no wonder she died and smiled for a trillion years afterwards.
The fact that we know about her is marvelous.
The next Pharaoh after her, Tuthmosis III, tried to erase Hatshepsut out of history. He chiseled her name off her monuments, covered the text on her obelisks with stone, and knocked down and defaced her statues.
She was even left off the list of pharaohs. Talk about some patriarchy bullshit.
Her name was lost for a couple of millennia, her body was found in a unmarked grave in the early twentieth century.
Sad part is, in Egyptian belief, if your are forgotten in the living world you don’t exist in the afterlife, so he was trying to kill her even in death.
My best friend throwing down some herstory. A+ commentary.
Okay, so mine and Aaron’s 3 year anniversary is coming up, soon! We’re still broke as heeeeeell, but since we’ve decided to not get married, we’re going to sell my engagement ring!
It’s a size 10 White Gold Ring with a 1/4 Karat Guaranteed Conflict-Free Diamond, and I’m looking to sell it IDEALISTICALLY at $800, but the price is TOTALLY NEGOTIABLE!
We just want enough to help smooth things over for a bit and to hopefully be able to afford our first little romantic get-away weekend. We never have the spare money to celebrate our anniversaries, we never buy each other presents on our birthdays or Christmas, because the kids matter more, but this year we’d really love to take a little short trip up to a romantic cabin in the woods.
(Donations—link on my blog—are more than welcome, but I’m trying to raise money here by selling some old jewelry! Thanks for your interest! Please signal boost if you can!)
I feel weird about this still. I’ve just been poor my whole life and I’ve been used to living on a need-to-survive-purchases-only basis for the majority of the year, but it’s never been like it’s about to be after all the stuff that’s happened this year. I wrote about it in this post if you’d like to know what’s up, but I could REALLY use any financial help I can get. I’m unsure at the moment about the “donate button” and “registering as a business” thing on paypal since it’s for private use???? So all I have at the moment is an email address you can use to enter in the “send money to a friend” field on paypal. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Even $5 here and there will help. Like I said in the longer post, even just, like, $10 will get me up to school since I had no choice but to move and commute an hour to classes 3+ days a week. I totally understand, though, if it’s not something you can/want to do, but it never hurts to ask :o
Also, again, if you know anything about the whole “registering as a business” stuff on paypal for a personal donations button, please message me.
I have a few things I can sell for money and some skills I could offer to make something for people once I get out of this icky time, which I mentioned in the longer post, if you’d be interested, maybe. I just thought I’d mention it. Thanks again for listening and stay rad!
If you don’t feel any need to reblog this, unfollow me.
holy fucking shit. i hadn’t heard what spikes were until i saw this post so i googled it and literally could feel all my hope for humanity sinking. i’m about to cry. what the fuck is this shit? that’s barbaric! where the hell are they supposed to go? you do realize that the cheapest solution would be to invest in shelters and job help programs and stop homelessness, not just put fucking spikes up and say “out of sight, out of mind.” no, fuck you. those are humans, treat them as humans.
I’m actually really amazed that this isn’t a Human Rights violation.

Red 04 Pontiac Grand Am for sale, either in parts or (preferably) whole. Buyer is responsible for removal of vehicle. Vehicle DOES NOT RUN. Missing passenger-side mirror. Some paint peeling, rear is…
I know this has a little personal information on it, but given that I’ve practically been doxxed, I don’t really care anymore.
Anyway, I’m a disabled and unemployed woman who’s looking to make some spare money for myself and my family. Ideally, Aaron and I would like to be able to afford a small romantic trip, alone, for the first time since we began dating, to celebrate our 3 year anniversary.
Due to my new-but-fast-developing illnesses, driving is becoming harder and harder to do. Often times, I have to pull over to throw up. So even getting this car fixed won’t be worth much, and may earn me about $500 more than what I’m looking for now, but cost me about $800 in the long run… You see my conundrum?
Selling this hunk of unusable car (with really excellent working parts) will a) stop the apartment complex from getting pissed at me for not moving it, and b) help us have our mini romantic getaway and also help fill in the blanks between bills.
Please, if you or anyone you know lives in the Louisville are and is interested (or just wants to help donate out of the kindness of your heart—my donate button is on my blog!) at the very least SIGNAL BOOST this for me!
I really appreciate it. Thank you, everyone!
