Mary Wollstonecraft: A New Genus

“The First of a New Genus”-Mary Wollstonecraft

These famous words came from Mary Wollstonecraft, a scandalous writer of the 1700’s. They express the feelings of Mary wanting to create a society where women are equal to men. It expresses her want for a new type of society that allow for more freedom and rights. She had not only one, but two affairs before getting married.(As you may already know, unlike today, this would ruin any chance for a clean existence then.) I mention this because this gives is a great example for the rest of the way she lived her life, out of the norm of an eighteenth century woman shopping for a husband. Due to her unorthodox lifestyle her writing and ideas were never really considered until the twentieth century. However, she is really one of the first to speak up for women’s rights. In her  A Vindication of Women’s Rights she says that women aren’t made to be inferior to men, but are breed to be so because of their lack of education. She even suggested that women were egual to men!(GASP!) A laughable notion in her time, which really just makes me even more excited to read bout her and learn her story. That this woman in her time could speak out against such common law and rules would have taken courage in a time when only white males had power. Let me rephrase that, white men with money had power. For example, … Never mind. That is a whole other post which needs to have its own separate thought.

Anyway, during the women’s rights movement, a new interest in the works of Mary became an inspiration to the women fighting for their right to hold equal ground of men. So Thank you Mary Wollstonecraft and all of your courage and literature.Image

Excuse the Blank Spaces

You may have noticed but I have changed the theme… again. I know! I should stay loyal to one theme but I am always finding something that fits better or reflects my state of mind. So, I have the new theme oxygen. I am in love. The only downfall, it needs featured pictures. Not that big of the deal, I almost always have pictures but I never set them as featured images because my last theme didn’t need them. So here I am trying to fill in the awkward white spaces. However, there are 106 posts here.(Wow, I wrote a lot.) I didn’t have the patience nor the will power to put new images for each of them. So, I will do my best to get that sorted out and get some nice pictures there instead of the ugly gray rectangle above each post, but until then thanks for putting up with it.

A Clearer Plate

So I have had my plate full with lots of things. One in particular commitment was pulling me away from other things I wanted to get done and I always felt like I wasn’t able to give enough time to the other projects I already had or wanted to take on. So, I made the decision to drop it. I was a bittersweet breakup. I loved being in the program but I just didn’t have the time to keep a good presence in my other tasks. Now I am free and able to set myself on a new course. Wish me luck!Image

Emergency Hair Dryer

Bad hair days. They happen to all of us. Sometimes it’s natures way of saying, “Here! Have some fun with it!”. Then, the sad boy or girl must be creative with their hair and make a masterpiece out of what they got. Well, thanks to the wonderful pinterest, I was able to fix my problematic hair this morning. I showered the night before, but when I woke up the next morning I had oily hair. I would have showered except I showered the night before so I could sleep in. So, remembering a fantastic pin, I whipped up a hair degreaser. Containing cornstarch, rubbing alcohol, and water, I was able to spray away the greasy hair within seconds. All I did was spray, brush and dry! I was so happy. So happy in fact, I felt the need to share with everyone this amazing little trick for all you greasy hair days.

Recipe:

1 tablespoon Rubbing Alcohol

1 tablespoon Corn Starch

4 tablespoons Water

SUPER EASY!!!!! Remember this the next time you are having a mishap with your hair and this will help you in a pinch. Happy Hair Days!Image

Floating Green Mueum

Physalia, the upcoming museum, nightclub and laboratory on water is in the early stages of development. The floating museum will actually give more to than the environment then it will take. The idea for the ship is it will scrub the water clean as it navigates waters. It will be coated with a titanium-dioxide-coated aluminum(Something I’m not going to even to pretend to have known.) This special coating will break down organic and inorganic toxins. Amazing! Maybe someday in the distant future I can visit this floating masterpiece and work in the water lab. Until then, I’ll enjoy these amazing concept drawings!

“Physalia A museum, nightclub and filtration system, Physalia uses its hull and rooftop plants to scrub away pollution.”- Suzanne LeBarre
