hello everybody my name is froggy and i am secretly 12 magpies in a trenchcoat
i have been Accumulating Stuff for many years now, hoarding is kind of a trait in my family and i have definitely inherited it, plus i had a big bad time mental health-wise a few years ago which contributed big-time to my depression nest
anyway i read the marie kondo book and its been really helpful so here is a thread about my progress, and also the cool/weird/gross stuff i have in my room!!!
Self-harm books - do you want one?
Hey, so a couple of years ago I illustrated some books about self-harm that are geared towards a younger audience, 7+ish. They use simple language to explain why people self-harm, how to support someone who self-harms, and how to deal with difficult emotions in a healthier way. I was gifted some copies by the author, and I have about ten spare - does anyone want one? They'd be useful for opening a dialogue about this sort of thing with young teens.
@scribblefrog it's definitely both! there's no doubt in my mind that some of these represented queer relationships and that those relationships have been very widely and perniciously scrubbed from history. I also think it's lovely to look back at a time when platonic male affection and physical contact were both permitted and encouraged and hope that we can restore that
and either case I think the photos are very sweet and they make me happy
the 588th Night Witches were a squad of russian bomber women who earned their name Nachthexen from the nazis because they would fly by night, turn off their goddamn engines to swoop in their outdated planes (often crop-dusters), whoosh over the target making this amazing sudden "witch's broom" RRSSSSH sound and manually eject bombs on german targets. they sometimes used their chart pencils as eyeliner and did not use radios and minimal metal so they couldn't be detected. No parachutes, no nothin. fuckin' ride or die. Marina Raskova assembled and trained this all-female team of fighters, many of whom were rewarded prestigious medals and in total over thirty thousand missions were completed. Thirty pilots were lost. They were hated and feared by the nazis who would receive high honors if they could actually take down one of the Night Witches and also assumed they had been experimented on so they could see in the dark. uh sorry, douchebags. but the witches are just better than you.
