Me and my sibling can go from
in like three seconds
on a scale from disney to dreamworks what’s your sibling relationship
Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass.
I literally said in the theatre to my friend “I guess we know who trained Natasha :D” and then was like “…oh.”

Anonymous asked: In regards to that quote you posted about female protagonists in books, do you know of any good ones? Thank you :)
I mean Hunger Games is an obvious choice lol, but unfortunately I read mostly non-fiction so I’m no good for this. But I’m open to suggestions if anyone has any!
The Icemark Chronicles (hella - fantasy series based on a Norse-ish AU and an invading Roman-ish army)
The Abhorsen Series (also hella, )
A Great and Terrible Beauty/Rebel Angels/The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray (Victorian era with magic and other realms. Also lady love)
Anonymous asked: Hello Melle! Let me say, You are a wonderful artist/ designer. My husband also lives with narcolepsy and is a graphic artist as well. Unfortunately his dream of becoming a shoe designer was deferred for years ( 11 plus) because medication effectiveness wasn't what it is today. Nevertheless, I am looking for a piece of art the represents the daily struggle of being narcoleptic. Do you see your work
So I’m pretty sure there was supposed to be a second part of this but nothing has come through in a couple of hours so I’ll just work with what I have here.
I’m not sure what artwork of mine you’re speaking of since I post very little of my own work on this tumblr? Unless you’re speaking about the feminism graphic that made it’s rounds on here, buzzfeed and pinterest a while back I don’t really know what you would have as a reference unless you know me in person.
As for the title of my blog, I don’t actually have diagnosed Narcolepsy :S The title Narcoleptic Insomnia came from a term my family came up with to describe my habit of falling asleep near-instantly whenever we sit down to watch movies or if I’m riding passenger in a car (I mean like I’ll be talking with them then literally about 30 seconds later I’ve fallen asleep) and then my not being able to sleep at night. These sleepless nights led to me spending lots of time on the internet, which led me to tumblr.
As for your husband, I’m sorry to hear he suffers from the condition and that it’s affected his work. I’m not sure if you’re commissioning art from me?
An Indian woman, a Japanese woman, and a Syrian woman, all training to be doctors at Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia, 1880s. (Image courtesy Legacy Center, Drexel University College of Medicine Archives, Philadelphia, PA. Image #p0103) (x)
The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly. Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph.
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.
