I recently read this blog post by a young Christian woman who moved to a new town, and went through the process of finding a new Church for herself. Here’s one thing she said, about a particular church, that struck me:
In addition to plentiful food and conversation at the social, each time…
This is so true. I used to go to the masjid all the time. Now I can barely force myself to go even during Ramadan because its just not usually an enjoyable experience.
so this new gen Hogwarts thing has been eating away at my mind and i did a thing
she’s a ravenclaw and she’s into historical revisionism and writes lengthy and intelligent articles for the zine. she’s also into mixing ‘alternative potions’, and plays as a chaser for the ravenclaw quidditch team.
she hates how history of magic is taught at Hogwarts though, its all books written by crusty old white pureblood dudes (“there isn’t a single non-human author in the syllabus, don’t tell me that doesn’t say something.”).
this is beautiful oh my god
DID SOMEONE DRAW ME?

Thanks! It was nice to hear from you again.

raiseconnectionerror answered: Should probably name it after someone else. Most of the work attributed to her was actually the work of Babbage
I DID NOT EVEN THINK OF THAT. Omg, I was just like punny, but I will totally inform the crew of Team STEM about this and I’ll see if they have any ideas for a new title.
adorkablegleek answered: Well I think it is a great idea, Sadiyah :) I would love to do it and I need to do more research on this subject anyway.
WE’VE GOT MAHINA NOW SO MISSION STEM IS A GO!
ballvvasher answered: i would love to help you out! what kinds of things would you need me to do?
AAAAAHHHH!!! YESSSS!!!!!!! Okay, so I’ll tage Micayla in this too so she knows what I was thinking.
So I was thinking of just making a little blog with posts maybe ever Mon, Wed, and Fri about the accomplishments of Women in STEM fields. And we could like make posts in advance and officially launch in maybe 2-3 weeks so its not too much?
And to make it easier we’ll do it by accomplishment not person. So like we could spend like a week on Ada Lovelace and Marie Curies, etc. etc.
And I wanna call it “Atta Girl Lovelace” because its punny.
So, you up for it?
adorkablegleek answered: I would love to help you but I don’t think I could post on there every single day though.
My goal is to hopefully get enough people on board that we could post like three times a week and that way each person would only have to post like once a week and then its way less workload.
And they wouldn’t have to be crazy long articles, just little snippets.
Why do I feel like I’ve had an idea like this before that I never did?
