Some Great Adventure


Hi, I'm Laura.

24. BA in International Studies/Political Science/Spanish.

I mostly just reblog social justice things, random stuff that makes me laugh, and pictures of cute animals.

I love to travel and may post some of my shitty photography but maybe not.

I was in the Peace Corps in Ukraine but had to be evacuated. :(

Now I'm working in government doing administrative things until I leave for a new Peace Corps assignment in Guatemala in the fall.

Yep.



Ask me anything

Did you know?

The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.

23 women show us their favorite positions

When reality television star and fashion blogger Lauren Conrad was asked what her “favorite position” was on a live radio program a while back, the women listening held their breath. Although we take great pride in the work that we do, most of us could relate to being undermined and belittled publicly at work. When Conrad cleverly retorted “CEO,” it was hard not to aggressively high-five our laptop and mobile devices. The words “hell” and “yeah” could be heard all across the nation.
