Wall Fragment from the Tomb of Amenemhet and His Wife Hemet, Middle Kingdom, Dynasty 12 (c. 1991 -1784 B.C.) is displayed at the Art Institute of Chicago to show a depiction that will be a remembrance of the two for their afterlife. This image has been caved on to limestone and painted with a pigment of some sort. The patron of this wall fragment would be Amenemhet and his wife, originally this would be located for recognition and remembrance, but would most likely be placed in a tomb with their belongings, and later be displayed to show the preset and his wife as a memorial. This does not show an every day life style, but instead an afterlife. His wife and him are seen in a typical Egyptian stance. We see their two left feet, their hips facing forward, but their chest turned, and a side profile of both of their faces. His wife is pigmented much lighter than him, because she is a female and thats how women were depicted. It shows she was a house wife, and did not do hard labor. She is decorated in white dress, with what looks like an exposed breast. Her eyes are painted with special paint and she looks like a typical Egyptian, but flawless because of her status. Amenemhet himself is much darker. He is seen in a typical kilt with a design, because the fabric must have been felt or something much nicer than normal material. Linen would offer them a comfortable wear for the afterlife. We see the two of them stand before an alter, or table of offerings. Since he is preset, the gifts or dues were given to him as a sign of giving gifts to the gods. Hieroglyphs are carved and represent deceased family and offering of prayer. These hieroglyphs represent a life of the two, which is good for their remembrance. Some of these hieroglyphs include beer, bread, vegetables, meat, and other goods. It shows that these two were highly respected and seen at high status in Egypt.The purity of their looks, makes them flawless and typical. Their style which is iconic makes them a higher status as well. Both of their bodies don't have much definition, which is what makes the image more focused on the meaning of the hieroglyphs around them and their offerings, rather than their looks. By focusing on this, status of priest and his wife in Egypt is more important than most things.

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers
Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.
If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series
Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.
I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.
I hope that you don't let your current chapter stop you from pursuing the rest of your story.
Every single one of us has a story.
I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.
Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)
Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?
Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
If they love you, they're not going to care if you didn't get them some expensive diamond necklace or Rolex watch; they just want you.
Let me preface this by saying I am not a bad girlfriend.
I am simply a forgetful one.
