When I was a kid I wore nothing but hand me downs from my godmother’s two teenaged sons.
Here I was, a 12 year old girl in 1996, dressing like a 15 year old boy from 1992.
This was exacerbated by the fact that I went to Catholic school the first 18 years of my life. My wardrobe was full of plaid skirts and polos and boys’ clothes from the mid 90s. I literally did not learn how to dress “like a girl” until I was a sophomore in college, and my fairy god-sister Adriana opened my eyes to the awesomeness that is feminine attire.
i saw this on one of those strange little picture slideshow websites so i decided to post it ;) have fun kids

Jason Momoa and Manu Bennett at Florida Super Con
Those two are both Maori, right? And they are goofily pulling semi-haka-referential moves in these photos, right?
Jason Momoa is Hawaiian, raised in Iowa. Manu Bennet is Australian/Maori (Ngāti Kahungunu and Te Arawa, which is tangentially related to my Iwi).
Manu in particular is referring some classic intimidation poses, especially the tongue (A lot of Maori tribes have a cool genetic trait where the connective skin underneath their tongue is much smaller, or not there at all, to further the intimidation. Mine goes out super far!), and Jason could be doing the same, or referring to native Hawaiian intimidation poses, which I am not familiar with.
A lot of the pacific island cultures are connected and have their own Hakas, Samoan, Fijian, Vanuatan, Tongan and more, all with different names. The one Manu is most likely referencing is Ka Mate, Te Rauparaha’s Haka (also my Iwi/tribe!), the most well known one, which looks like this.
This has been your daily dose of OH MY GOD SOMEONE IS TALKING ABOUT MY TINY COUNTRY LET ME IMMEDIATELY TELL YOU EVERYTHING I KNOW.
Okay history kids, I’ve got some ancient Roman coins on t-shirts and hoodies for you, available over on RedBubble.
1. Marcus Aurelius - This ancient Roman coin depicts Marcus Aurelius, who ruled the Roman Empire from 161 to 180 AD. He was the last of the Five Good Emperors, and is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers. His MEDITATIONS, written while on campaign between 170 and 180 AD, is still revered as a literary monument to a philosophy of service and duty, describing how to find and preserve equanimity in the midst of conflict by following nature as a source of guidance and inspiration.
2. The Centaur - This ancient Roman coin depicts a centaur with a bow and arrow in tribute to the pagan god Jupiter. The coin was struck under Gallienus as part of his “zoo” series, portraying numerous animals in honor of Jupiter.
3. Aurelian, Restitutor Orbis - This ancient Roman coin depicts Aurelian, who was Roman Emperor from 270 to 275. Born in humble circumstances, he rose through the military ranks to become emperor. During his reign, his many military successes were instrumental in ending the Roman Empire’s Crisis of the Third Century, earning him the title Restitutor Orbis or ‘Restorer of the World’. Aurelian strengthened the position of the Sun god Sol Invictus as the main divinity of the Roman pantheon. His intention was to give to all the peoples of the Empire, civilian or soldiers, easterners or westerners, a single god they could believe in without betraying their own gods.
4. Sol Invictus - This ancient Roman coin depicts Sol Invictus (the Unconquered Sun), the official sun god of Imperial Rome and a patron of soldiers. Some historians have proposed that the date December 25th was chosen to celebrate Christmas as a way of integrating the pagan Roman festival Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, or the “Birthday of the Unconquered Sun.” The last Imperial inscription referring to Sol Invictus is dated to 387 AD, however, the god’s devotees were many, and the cult persisted well into the 5th Century AD. For many history lovers today, Sol remains The Unconquered Sun.
Aqua Aura is a power house of energy since it combines the wonderful properties of quartz and gold. It’s a great stone for increasing communication. It allows you to speak the truth and see the truth. Further, Aqua Aura is used to empower and enhance psychic abilities, healing and meditation. I plan on making some beautiful Aqua Aura necklaces and selling some of these points on my online etsy.com crystal shop called “Stone and Crescent.” (They will be up in a week or so!) #aquaaura #blue #crystals #pagan #witchcraft
