The girl without a voice – an improtant cause

At the age of 3 Ola’s digestive system and vocal chords were dissolved after she was made to drink acid by her Father.

Every dollar counts and there’s a long way to go.

Here’s a link to the Indiegogo page: http://igg.me/at/olaazimov/x/5779192

It looks like it was not opened by Ola herself, but by someone who’s seen her story featured on TV.

In order to be able to eat or drink she has to undergo a VERY expensive surgery in Texas. It really is an enormousness sum of money.

Here is a video with English subtitles:

 

Life can be so cruel sometimes. I have nothing else to add :/

Japan

Fushimi Inari Shrine

Fushimi Inari Shrine

I took a month off work this past September and traveled to Japan all on my own.

It was EXPENSIVE – even though I stayed within my budget – so proud of myself :)

It was also one of the best experiences ever – Japan is amazing. The people, culture, architecture and nature. I climbed several mountains, went to onsens and ate delicious food. I will have to return someday soon.

Oh, and how could I forget? I go to practice my Japanese for the first time!  It felt really good.

I took so many notes and photos during the trip. I have to actually write everything down. Just thinking about it makes my head ache.

How do you even get started? :/

I got my gas mask ages ago

So it seems like the US might attack Syria. This caused a sort of panic in Israel and people are lining up to get their gas masks. These people could have gotten their gas masks ages ago, they just didn’t. damn procrastinators.

This is the scene in Tel Aviv, CRAZY:

Personally, I’m not taking this seriously. Most of us never do until these things actually happen, huh?

Why you should never live with roommates

I’m a bit upset.

I live in a flat with one roommate. Obviously, I pay more for this luxury. Also, I live in the center of Tel Aviv – which means I’m paying a lot. A ridiculous amount.

For the past 3 months, my roommate’s girlfriend has been here every day – well, I see her every morning and evening when I get back from work. I didn’t say anything at the beginning since my roommate hurt his leg and couldn’t even go to work. I figured he needed help. Another month passed, he went back to work, but the gf stayed. Now, a month later I asked him what’s this all about.

Apparently she moved in and gave up her apartment, and no one thought to tell me. On top of that, he called me petty. *ME*. All because I said that I don’t like having another presence in the house. Oh, I kept the best for last – he does not think she should pay a dime.

Yes, you’re reading this right. In Hebrew we say chuzpah. That was a week ago. He told me they’ll figure something out. He has not said a thing to me since, and I’m getting the feeling we’re not on speaking terms anymore – on his side at least.

So I tried doing it the nice way instead of going straight to the landlord. I guess nice doesn’t work with some people. How does anyone think that kind of behavior is ok? It’s beyond me. I’m really upset.

La Rocca, ItalyThis photo was taken in Italy while climbing La Rocca. It has a calming effect on me. Sort of. :)

Stupid people on OkCupid

I’m on OkCupid. Trying to find love and all that jazz. This is not what this post is about though. I got a message from a 51 year old man from Australia. Here it is:

I hope one day to see Israel respecting other countries cultural heritage,borders and culture. Why can’t you just leave the Palestinian people alone,and go back to Poland?

Why do people do that on a DATING site? Also, any sentence that starts with I hope one day or I wish.. is so damn preachy, come on! And on top of that, it is the stupidest statement ever – it’s something I expect from a child. I am not responsible for everything wrong with Israel  – Just like a Palestinian is not responsible for all suicide bombings – I can tell the difference – Nazis do not equal the German people or Germany. 

Why can’t I go back to Poland? I can’t speak for all Jews, but the Nazis took my grandmother’s home and murdered her family. Besides, us Jews came from all over the place, we can’t ALL go back to Poland.

I’m getting worked up over nothing, but what else is there to do on a Saturday afternoon?

20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized

Had to reblog this.
Truly amazing :)

 

Which one is your favorite?

TwistedSifter

 

One of the greatest facets of reddit are the thriving subreddits, niche communities of people who share a passion for a specific topic. One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour.

When we see old photos in black and white, we sometimes forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today. This gallery of talented artists helps us remember that :)

Below you will find a collection of some of the highest rated colorized images to date on r/ColorizedHistory.

I’ve also provide a list of some of the top contributors (in no particular order):
