Human mesenchymal stem cells labelled with a dye called phalloidin which stains a cytoskeletal protein, actin. The nuclei are counter-stained. The cell cytoskeleton is the cells scaffolding, structuring the cell and in some cells, providing movement or shuttling of different proteins. (Image taken by Tony Rossetti)

The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesn’t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will.

Newest tattoo!

It’s on my left forearm. It’s a note my mom left me the night she died. Here’s a side-by-side shot of the two.

Deserves every note.

I cried and then I reblogged

This hit me like a brick.  Most wonderful tattoo I’ve ever seen.

They are really trash I don’t get why they are reality famous?

not going against what you said but this is actually a technique used all around the world by chefs to see if the spaghetti is cooked

the kardashians are 100x more worthy of the word “trash”

they got famous because they represented a stereotype that people hate

they remained famous because despite being totally different from what people are used to seeing in reality tv shows [typically rich and attractive] they wound up being a nice family that loved each other

“hawhaw look at the fat white trash” isn’t really what you should be getting from their tv show and if it is all you get out of it then you’re probably a lot worse off than they are

Why would anyone think they’re trashy?

Is it because they don’t want to live outside of their means and refuse to change their ways just because someone is watching? Because instead of wasting the money the bring in from the show, June instead saves the money into college funds for her daughters? Perhaps it’s because June and Sugar Bear have a supportive and loving relationship that isn’t based on appearances, but on their personalities and their ability to make each other laugh and feel comfortable being themselves. Is it because when their oldest daughter got pregnant, they supported and continued to care for her and her baby and encouraged her to stay in high school instead of dropping out like so many other teenage mothers do? Or maybe it’s because they stand by Alana and support her ambitions of being a pageant girl, telling her that she is beautiful (or beautimous) regardless of whether she wins or loses? OR, OR, OR, it might be because every donation they get from fans and supporters goes to help centers for LGBT youth, and other charitable organizations?

This family gives back to their community, and practices love and tolerance and acceptance. I will defend them to the ends of the earth and I get PHYSICALLY ILL whenever someone dismisses them as Trashy or Disgusting.

THIS FAMILY IS THE REALEST AND MOST AMAZING FAMILY ON TELEVISION TODAY, AND THEY DESERVE TO BE ON TELEVISION MORE THAN THE KARDASHIANS, OR ANY OTHER FAMILY.

THIS IS A TRUE REALITY TELEVISION FAMILY.

Reblogging for the last two comments. 

…well this is certainly a fresh perspective on this family.  Thanks to the commenters for showing me the other side.

So some of you have seen this or this, and know that I’m ftm transgender and currently raising money for top surgery!

Some brothers from the fraternity I recently pledged (and am now in) banded together and started an indiegogo after they found out insurance rejected my surgery claim.  They raised their short-term goal of $2000 and are now aiming towards $4800, the amount I need to completely cover the rest of my $8125 procedure with Melissa Johnson in Springfield.

Today, one of my brothers, Ben Lindsay, published a piece in Out.com about the fundraiser.

Check it out here: Boston Fraternity Raises money for Trans Brother

And you can learn more/donate here: FtM Top Surgery

Seriously I think this is the coolest most wonderful thing in the world and I just want to share it with everyone.  I can never say thank you enough for all the help I’ve gotten these last weeks and months, particularly from Tumblr too. LOVE.

x Donnie

So awesome.

I think this might be why, of all the new series’ companions, I don’t like Martha Jones.

Rose, Donna and Amy didn’t want to leave ‘My Doctor’, ‘Raggedy Man’ or ‘Spaceboy’, but they didn’t have a choice.

Martha Jones just walked away.

Martha’s family had just gone through a year of hell.  A year of being TORTURED, a year where they were threatened with DEATH every day, a year where they saw horrors unimaginable.  They needed her

Martha herself just went through a year of hell.  A year where she was hunted every day.  A year where there was a special forces unit tasked with doing nothing but tracking her down.  A year where she saw an entire country burn in front of her eyes.  A year where she witnessed more death and destruction than any one person should ever have to.  A year where she saved the universe not with magic TARDIS/Metacrisis/Universe crack powers but with her own brains, cunning, determination and willpower.  She needed her family.

She had also just spent a year in love with a man who didn’t love her back.  A man who was often dismissive of her thoughts and feelings.  A man who she had to watch fall in love with another woman and accuse her of being his executioner after two months of going from being a doctor to a maid in an era when she was thought of as less than a person because of the color of her skin.  Then three more month of working in a shop to support him.  Her thanks for those things was “thank you” and a hug.  She went through a year where she TIME AND AGAIN proved herself, delivered the impossible and yet was judged unworthy just because she wasn’t someone she’d never met.  And THEN the year of literal hell. 

Put yourself in her shoes for just a minute.

She made absolutely the right decision, for her own mental and emotional well being, and for her family’s.  She still cared for him, she gave him a lifeline back to her, but she couldn’t survive in that environment anymore, having her self esteem torn down every day after she had proved over and over just how amazing she was.

FOREVER APPRECIATE MARTHA.

i swear, martha haters, not one of you has an inch of logic or reason in your body

sweet lord, that rebuttal is perfect.

And really, which is better?

Choosing to leave of your own free will, or being trapped in a parallel universe?

Choosing to leave of your own free will, or having your mind and memories erased?

Choosing to leave of your own free will, or being dumped at some house you don’t know like you’re still a child, always and forever?

Aaaaaaand raising a glass to Martha Jones.  Bring it, haters.  (And seriously, I am still trying to come up with canon in my head for a non-gross reason she and Mickey ended up together.  I have done my Very Best.  I try to believe it is because he understood being world-savingly awesome while always having to play second fiddle for bullshit reasons.  Being brown on the TARDIS sucks.  Seriously, Rita, you got saved a lot of trouble, getting et by a lonely feelings minotaur.)

Reblogging for commentary. OP couldn’t be any more wrong.

Also, with that logic, practically all of the classic companions would “suck”

Her ability to walk away is exactly WHY I love Martha. Haters can suck my timey-wimey wibbly-wobbly. 

You are BRILLIANT!!!!!!! 

you are a STAR, MARTHA!!!!!

MARTHA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS BE MY FAVORITE COMPANION!!!!!!
