Corinna | late 20s | District Capitol |

General enthusiasms: history, geography, languages, media of all sorts, education, food, friendship, justice, and hard-earned optimism.

Specific enthusiasms: old maps, writing stories, cupcakes, multiple flavors of both Sherlock Holmes and Les Miserables, Welcome to Night Vale, Classic Who, White Collar, Graceland, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Lord of the Rings, Moomintroll, Disney films, Nickelodeon, American Girl dolls, the 20th century, cities, ancient Rome, classical mythology, middle school pedagogy, Finnish and Scandinavian cultures, sapphism through the ages, pictures of adorable animals and people. These are likely to show up on this blog at any given moment, as is anything else to which I've currently taken a fancy.

Periodically blogging about mental health issues under the tag "brain stuff."

Hats worn: teacher, INTP, Capricorn, Ravenclaw, waterbender, urban hobbit. Sun sign of John Watson with a moon sign of Sherlock Holmes lurking underneath. True 1790s Kid, tongue placed firmly in cheek.

for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.

how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever



pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but it can happen again
