Now’s as good a time as any to share this, but on Friday, a friend and former coworker from back home passed away tragically; she was trying to cross the street, when she was hit by a car.
(If anyone is interested, you can read the obituary here.)
It was a shock to everyone, and needless to say, these past few days have been very difficult.I’m in Atlanta now and unable to make it home for the funeral, so I drew this to cope in my own way. Julie was such a sweet, warm girl. Most people at my job hated it there, but she made the most of it and was almost always smiling. I remember I snapped at her once, and I was convinced she wouldn’t want to talk to me anymore, but she never held that against me. I don’t even think it’s enough to say, “Wow, what a kind, sweet person,” because that feels like the generic sentiment you’d give to anyone, but I mean it. She was genuine.I’m having a rough time, yet I can’t even imagine the pain her family and close friends must be feeling right now … so if you could please keep them in your prayers, that would be wonderful.I’m also posting this, because I think it’s so important to talk about people that are gone. Keep the memory alive. So Julie, you will not be forgotten. Until we meet again, sweet girl.
Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.
Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.
If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”
No no no
Fuck that guy.
Remember this girl.
What about her name? I keep seeing this all over my dashboard, but I’ve never seen it with her name in the actual post and not just in the link.
Eesha Khare. That’s who she is. Not just “Nameless-brown-girl-who-made-something.”
EESHA KHARE KICKING ASS!
so when this comin out
If at first you don’t succeed, redefine success.
I reblogged this at like 4am and I’ve spent the whole day thinking about it and randomly laughing
So everyone is talking about how Justin beiber got arrested. Honestly, there are more serious things to discuss. This 8 year old boy saved 6 people from a fire and died trying to save the 7th. This 8 year old boy gave his life trying to save his family. We should be paying respect to this brave soul instead of talking about some idiot getting arrested. The media disgusts me.
