Thank you very, very, very much for your wonderful illustration paralleling a time-bomb to the type of cancer Ms. Jolie carries the gene for! It's a perfect metaphor, and executed wonderfully. As one with a grandmother who's passed away from breast cancer, and has a cousin who is scheduled for a double mastectomy Thursday for cancer - KUDOS! And Thank you again!
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
…that you can use to lock your browser from being opened between certain hours of the day, or for a certain set amount of time, to encourage you to do more work and browse less. As a freelancer who has had a hard time concentrating lately, I NEED this. Does anyone know of the name of this program? Which one do you use and prefer?
I’m not sure of that program, but there’s one called Self Control for Mac and a similar one called Cold Turkey for windows that allow you to block specific domains for whatever time limit you set to keep you off sites that waste your time if you don’t want to lose access to things like google.
I use a combination of StayFocusd and Strict Pomodoro, plugins for Chrome. I like Pomodoro best. Essentially, it blocks distracting sites for 25 minutes, then lets you have a five minute break to do whatever you want, then it starts over again and blocks the problem sites. I need those breaks! It helps keep me from getting too antsy, knowing I’ll get a break.
I must have accidentally led my computer to believe that so long as tumblr loads, I won’t mind if everything else on it implodes into a pile of shit. I can se how it would get that impression, but it’s not true.
I turned my computer off completely before I went on tour. When I came back, it was on, and it’s behaved bizarrely ever since, Photoshop being the worst. I’ve been procrastinating on my work because it’s become such a pain in the ass to use this thing. Might be time to sigh and schlep on down to the Apple Store and make them so whatever it is they do.
I usually don’t reblog stuff like this because this is my art blog but this hit close to home and reminded me of so many conversations that made me feel like garbage.
It always makes me see red when I see lesbians (and gay men) treating bisexuals this way. I don’t think I can even type too much more without quickly reaching a point where I just smash my head into the keyboard.
