I’m calling this photo “Gypsy.” This scarf was a gift from one of my aunts at my sister’s wedding a few years ago. These beautiful scarves are traditionally used in Assyrian dances and at Assyrian weddings and other celebrations but I couldn’t help but conjure up images in my head of the dancing gypsy archetype so often portrayed in popular culture as I was editing. The somewhat mysterious and distrustful look in her decorated eye also played into that because of the historical persecution and forced assimilation of the Romani people.  
I imagined a young Romani woman, largely insulated from the outside world and traveling safe among her people, suddenly approached by a stranger; Someone who looks different from anyone she has ever seen.  What would she do? Would she run and hide? No. Her people do not run. They do not hide. What she doesn’t realize is that she too looks unlike any other person this stranger has ever met. 
So they both just stand there, quietly assessing each other with mild suspicion on the one hand, and abject fascination on the other. 
**EDIT** A couple people have questioned my use of the word “gypsy” and I realized when I went back to re-read the story behind the photo that my reason for using that particular word was unclear. As I noted in my caption, the story behind the photo is that of two people (the woman in the photo) and another, seeing each other for the first time, and the title of the photo was meant to be from the stranger’s perspective. I am aware of the historical origins of this word, but It was in absolutely no way intended to be derogatory, and I think context matters here. I apologize to those who were offended by its use.

Over the years, Microsoft has started to become greedy with their Microsoft Office packages, previously, it was pre-included in Windows computers, and then,  they were separately sold. Now, they’re yearly subscriptions (like an Anti-virus)
It’s time to make a stand! (And no, don’t even pirate their software.)
LibreOffice - a software that’s very similar to Microsoft Office BUT THIS ONE’s FREE!
DOWNLOAD HERE

This has helped me big time during my time in college. Saved me big bucks & not getting into trouble by downloading a cracked Microsoft Office copy.
I highly recommend this to everyone. 

this is actually easier to use than Word tbh

Wow I was just considering to buy that Office 2013 package until I saw this post. Good stuff! +1

I literally JUST cracked and bought my year of Microsoft Office -_- But yeah they are just going really far from what they used to be.
Does libre office save in doc format though? I used to use another program that did but websites wouldn’t recognize it as doc :/

^ Yes, you can save as a .docx file & you can open files made through Word as well. 

Been using Libre Office/Open Office for years now. I have honestly not used Microsoft Office since 2003. Microsoft is on it’s way to collapse. Windows is going down the tubes in quality, and Open Source Operating systems are becoming more prevalent, they blew it with Windows Mobile, Xbox One looks like a total failure with a lot less power than the PS4. And now this with Microsoft Office. Use LibreOffice, save yourself money and use a product that is more often regularly maintained and updated than it’s Microsoft counterpart.

I’ve been usingit for years now.  It’s a great alternative to Microsoft Office.  Can save in nearly any major format.  Plus I find it easier to use than Microsoft Office.  Haven’t really used that since 03 when they had it in my high school computers. 

I used to use OpenOffice because I refused to by word. Thankfully my college gave it to is for free but I will always recommend alternatives.

Or, you could buy office, and help stop the company from laying off hundreds of people

Don’t support business practices you don’t like because someone will loose their job. You are the consumer! You decide what you approve of and what you don’t.

Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.

Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.
