Teal would set off that orange so nicely! Have you considered running the teal from there in one or two stripes across the cabinets and the orange wall to bring them together? I think that would look lovely~

My husband is very leery of having the cabinets painted. xD A friend of ours just painted her cabinets white, and he wasn’t as horrified as he thought (the first time I suggested white cabinets it was like some kind of sacrilege) so I might be able to bring him around one day. 

The wood cabinets might be okay though - I’m going to be bringing in a lot of wood elements as part of the design I think, and blue curtains, so we’ll see where it goes from there.

Thank you for the suggestion. :D

I never knew how many people hate the very idea of white cabinets. When we were renovating everyone was all “but they’ll show the dirt!”… yeah, thats the point, then I know what needs cleaning! Everyone loves the white kitchen now, they just couldn’t grasp it at the time. AND it lets you paint fun colours on the wall!

White cabinets always seemed like such a traditional farmhouse thing to me that I am a little taken aback by how stunned people are by the idea as being far too contemporary/modern.

Hubby’s worry is that “once you paint them you can’t un-paint them”

Mendeley is the greatest program ever

I want to weep with joy every time I use it

Just click a button when you pull up an article and it will automatically save it to your library

And cite it for you

And you can use it on your mobile devices

And it’s free

Just download it and you won’t have so many urges to kill everyone in sight while writing a research paper

Thank you so much!

Guys, I cannot stress how amazing this program is. 

You can use it to highlight, write notes, mark up, etc. What I do is I highlight all the important jazz, use the comments to write notes on the document, and on the side bar, I write an annotated bib for it for future me. It save everything you write on it forever for you and you can put the articles in folders and organize it.

But that’s not the best part, the best part is that you can access your articles ANYWHERE. Literally anywhere. Forgot your laptop and at a public library? No worries! You can go to the Mendeley website and ACCESS ALL YOUR ARTICLES WITH YOUR NOTES ONLINE. You don’t even have to download the program to access it! It is a life saver and I suggest everyone in academia use it!

I needed this 24hrs ago. 😂😵

We just got an unprecedented look at a black hole ripping apart a star

For the first time ever, astronomers got a close-up peek at a black hole ripping apart a star, a rare event that results in some of the star’s material getting ejected out into space. To research this phenomenon, astronomers used data from a tidal disruption that happened 3.9 billion years ago. Studying tidal disruptions like this one is revealing new information about how black holes behave.

“The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.”
