Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It!EDIT 2/13/14:Knowledge is Out There, Grasp It! by Xadrea
Due to a few concerns that I'm overgeneralizing through my use of the word ignorant, I wanted to amend some things:
1. This journal was not written out of a pretentious attitude, in fact it's quite the opposite. I feel the need to share knowledge, and I do whenever I can. I could never be upset with those who truly do not know where to start when it comes to enriching their minds.
2. This journal is not about lording knowledge above those who do not yet possess it.

Examples: To Kill a Mockingbird was banned from schools because it "promotes white supremacy" when actually, it doesn't.
Derpy Hooves has been edited in My Little Pony because she was "offensive to the disabled" when actually, she ISN'T.
Writers and artists are being shunned or forced to

Sew your plush's body together, leaving the entire back open.
Sew your plush's head together, also leaving the back open.
Match the head to the body and pin. When making your pattern, make sure the circumference of the opening at the bottom of the head is equal to the circumference of the neck opening of the plush body.
Sew a straight line from one end to the other.
The plush's head is now attached!
You should now have a plush with the entire back open! All you have to do now is finish it!
