Asexuality is an orientation in which a person does not experience sexual attraction to any sex and/or gender. They do not feel an intrinsic desire to make sex a part of their relationships with other people. However they may still be able to experience other types of attraction, and desire relationships with other people.

—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)
Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?
I didn’t know this.
He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.
When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.
And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this. They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.

NEVER READ ANY OF HIS BOOKS AGAIN. AND READ HERS INSTEAD. CONSIGN HIM TO OBLIVION.

Then disinterred her body to retrieve the poems he had placed in her open coffin because they were “too good” to let her rest with them. Cool art dudes from history.
I had kind of a nerd-out this morning. But I felt like everyone needed to know about this.
Buckwheat is often confused to be a grain, but it is more of a “pseudo-grain” as it’s really a seed related to the rhubarb plant. It is high in protein & contains the amino acid lysine which is slightly harder to find in plant foods. It is a good source of manganese and flavonoids which help prevent inflammation in the body. One of the most delicious & easy ways to enjoy buckwheat and all it’s benefits is to make it into a raw porridge. Start off by rinsing raw buckwheat groats very well. It is important to soak the buckwheat. Soaking activates all those good nutrients and breaks down the anti-nutrients to make digestion better. Place in a big bowl with warm water overnight or for at least 7 hours. Add 1 tbsp of an acid, like vinegar or lemon juice, per every 1 cup of buckwheat. Once it is done soaking be sure to thoroughly rinse it. Then it is ready to use in your porridge! Here are some easy buckwheat porridge recipes;
