Today’s mental health reminder: a relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days, (or whatever your step back may be) does not decrease your value. Take your time, do some self care, reflect on the progress that you have made. You are strong; one step back is nothing when you look at the journey you have already made.

Hello, Awrite! The  #WeeklyTongue is Scots, a language that has been spoken in Scotland for many centuries and is found today throughout the Lowlands and Northern Isles.

Scots is mainly a spoken language with a number of different varieties, each with its own distinctive character.

And…let us make this clear, speaking Scots is not the same as speaking with a Scottish accent.

The data gathered during the 2011 census shows that there are 1.9 million Scots speakers, to what Michael Hance, Director of the Scots Language Centre said “…we can begin to (…) support communities of Scots speakers and to encourage those communities to value their language and pass it on to future generations. Scotland without the Scots language would be a pale imitation of itself”


Hello Hello, Awrite!

This woman is my new favorite person.
