I think the first sentences I learned in Spanish were things like “The chair is red” or “I like the cat” but nooooo, Latin is like “HE OPPRESSES ME WITH CRUEL CHAINS” and I’m like woah this is chapter two calm down Wheelock.
Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”
Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

This is amazing. I would actually pay good money for one of these. Just beautiful.
This suggests that Nicki Minaj also wrote little bits and pieces of “Baby Got Back.” Which would be impressive… except it’s a lie. LIES NICKI MINAJ.

I do. I’m also aware that she said every word she spits is hers. I’ve chosen to take her literally. Which makes her wrong.
tumblr user literarygingerfox thinks that Nicki Minaj playing a recording of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s actual voice in her song is the same thing as Nicki Minaj spitting her own verses. tumblr user literarygingerfox deadass doesn’t know what sampling is.

Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical.
It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.
