Sometimes We Just Need to Escape
My name's Rachel, 20, MA. Bentley University. I love the feeling of escape a book can give you, allowing you to travel into the mind and life of another person.

Hopefully you can escape into my blog a little like I can escape into a book.

This ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
One of the problems with Braille is that it’s typically printed in specialist books aside from the copies created for sighted people, meaning that those with sight difficulties can’t borrow their friends’ books and need to seek out the bookstores and libraries that cater for them. In the past, we’ve seen projects such as Thailand’sMr. Light and Mr. Dark — which uses special typography to enable the blind and non-blind to read the same book. Now the FingerReader initiative from MIT provides visually impaired readers with a wearable ring that can scan written text and read it out loud. READ MORE…

#pride and prejudice

emmasneverland:

"…Haig made Elsa’s fear feel like real anxiety, which is what this character is all about. Elsa is a woman who lives in a constant state of worry that something will make her so afraid that she’ll lose control again, and that’s something people with anxiety can strongly relate to. It’s also something Haig captured perfectly—that fear of yourself and who you are when your anxiety is at its worst. From her shaking hands and her tight fists as she struggled to control her magic just walking down the street to her struggle to control her breathing as she hid, the physical details of her anxiety were heartbreaking."

Things I will forever be upset about:

1. I don’t know what my Patronus is
2. I don’t know what Amortentia smells like to me

3. I don’t know what I’d see in the Mirror of Erised

4. I don’t know what my Boggart would be

5. I don’t know for sure what house I would be in

6. I don’t know the specifications of my wand are.
