Ruan Lingyu 阮玲玉 in The Goddess 神女 (1934 Chinese silent film)
Well, I can only hope you all are watching the excellent Ken Burns documentary, The Roosevelts, which began airing last night. In honor of that, and not at all because I’m on vacation and feeling lazy, this week I’m going to reblog some of my favorite Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt posts.
Seriously, though, the documentary is great so far. Check it out if you can!
Meet … America’s New President, Franklin Roosevelt.

I'm glad your placement went well - final year already! Good luck with that - I'm sure you'll do great. Uni is indeed over and I am now out in the real world, working a real job and all. I don't feel like i'm 100% ready for my job, but then I think there's way less at stake in my role really, and learning is what makes it interesting
Yeah, I think it’ll probably take a while in practice before I feel like a “real” OT. And thanks, I hope you’re right. I don’t think many people feel 100% ready when taking on a new role but I’m certain you’ll be a success and if you’re finding it interesting that’s the most important thing. What kind of role is it?
I was featured on colossal today, very exciting.
Woah this is amazing.
Shield of Henry II of France, France, ca. 1555.
The battle scene at the center is thought to depict the victory of Hannibal and the Carthaginians over the Romans in Cannae in 216 B.C., which here could be interpreted as an allusion to the struggle of France against the Holy Roman Empire during the sixteenth century. In the strapwork borders are the intertwined letters: H for Henry II (reigned 1547–59); C for Catherine de Médicis, his queen; and possibly also D for Diane de Poitiers, his mistress. Interspersed with the initials are crescents, the king’s personal badge and a reference to the moon goddess Diana and her namesake Diane de Poitiers.
