Cheeky Sunday morning girly post!

So: everything I learned about makeup I learned from painting. And I mean it. When I was 2..5? 6? Don't even remember anymore? I started to paint with oils, which I did for about a year. That taught me how to do foundation and blending.

Then, about a year ago, WH40K miniature painting has taught me that many near-invisible, translucent layers work way better than one thick one.

And finally I realized that highlighter powders are really just drybrushing.

As for me, I'll just reminisce that postcolonialism made absolutely no sense to me until 2014. And then it made all the sense.

UApol, police 

After reading conspiracy theories for work the whole morning, reading Latour on citation mechanics is downright relaxing.

Considering Telegram is pretty much the most-used messenger in the FSU right now, I am freaking out just slightly.

The ACLU wants you to know that as you come out to protest, there are a few thinks to keep in mind:

1. The right to protest is a fundamental human right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the First Amendment.

2. If you get stopped, ask if you are free to go. If the police say yes, calmly walk away.

3. You have the right to record. The right to protest includes the right to record, including recording police doing their jobs.

4. The police can order people to stop interfering with legitimate police operations, but video recording from a safe distance is not interfering.

5. If you get stopped, police cannot take or confiscate any videos or photos without a warrant.

6. If you are videotaping, keep in mind in some states, the audio is treated differently than the images. But images and video images are always fully protected by the First Amendment.

7. The police's main job in a protest is to protect your right to protest and to de-escalate any threat of violence.

8. If you get arrested, don't say anything. Ask for a lawyer immediately. Do not sign anything and do not agree to (cont)
