WHY THE HELL
CAN YOU NOT
WHEN YOU BLINK?!
Don’t be stupid
man, fuck this post
UM I DO THIS TOO AND EVERYONE ALWAYS POINTS IT OUT
I’ve failed to live blog thus far. I’ve had people hanging over me for the most part. My cousin, in his 20’s, has attempted to grow a mustache. It’s pencil thin and creepy. It looks like a sketch. Anyway, my grandmother said she liked it and he said, “yeah I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it. Like people won’t let me hang out with their children.” Thank you, I thought I was the only one. I mean, what? Another family member has gone rogue with eyeliner and drawn eyebrows on…. Not well, either.
this is what keeps me young
I JSUT SPIT MY ICED TEA ALL OVER MY LAPTOP EVERYEWHRE
I love how done with Taylor everyone looks.
words are not meant to live on a page
they are created to be spoken
they exist with inflection
they are built for resolve
from sonnets to film scripts
and even novels take a new life
when someone else reads it
You may argue some imagination is lost
in hearing someone else’s interpretation
Someone posted this on my facebook feed today. If you have a minute to read it before my post, you should.
It’s an article on teaching children not to think the world revolves around them by-wait for it- a professor that probably thinks the world revolves around him, judging by his need to tell the parents of the world to to make sure their children don’t feel special. Now, there’s nothing wrong with teaching your children not to be stuck-up brats. At first, I thought it would be that article.
But then he announced that he teaches his daughter that she is not special. Apparently, it’s wrong to tell your children they are special, wrong to make them feel special, and wrong to teach them they are equal by giving everyone the same benefits for participating in activities. First of all, I have to say that I think this entire idea is horrible. To specifically tell your child that he/she is not special is to make them believe they have no need to achieve their goals because there is nothing special about them or their talents. I’m having trouble detailing this thought in words, so I’m going to have to trust that at least someone understands that. If I had been told I wasn’t special, I wouldn’t have achieved nearly as many things as I have. Also, the writer is being very hypocritical of himself by saying children are not special and going on to say, “By the time today’s kids got to middle school, they had figured out that it didn’t matter who finished first because everyone got a trophy.” Okay, but why wouldn’t they all get one if none of them are special?
"And our society’s obsession with self-esteem." Yes, GOD FORBID we give children self-esteem in a society where the victims of bullying-related suicides keep getting younger and younger.
“And finally, we need to blame our society’s culture of narcissism where everyone from actresses to teachers to naughty congressmen posts selfies — silly, self-indulgent snapshots that serve as instant, digital self-portraits.” What on Earth is self-indulgent about taking a photo of yourself? Is it wrong to feel good about yourself? Is it self-indulgent when we are made, in school, to paint self-portraits? I don’t get it at all. I don’t feel that it’s self-indulgent to document times when you’re having fun or feel good about your appearance.
That’s all I can say that won’t spark world’s longest rant about how children, especially little girls, need to know that they are special. I sincerely hope his daughter knows better than what he tells her.
Missives intended to shock are nothing surprising from the former Mrs. Marilyn Manson, but Evan Rachel Wood’s Twitter rant today could not be more on point. On the heels of producers cutting a scene where Wood receives oral sex, solely to secure an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, Wood took to social media to express her displeasure.
Another reason to love ERW
once a girl in my biology class asked if the sun had bones
Once a girl in my spanish class asked if fish was a dairy product
once a girl in my biology class exclaimed, “i didn’t know you breathed when you were sleeping!”
once a girl in my history class asked if england was in london
Once a girl in my renaissance history class asked which renaissance our paper had to be on. When asked to elaborate, she said, “Liiiike, the Harlem one, or…?”
Another time in English comp, we had to watch historical speeches and write critiques on the online discussion board. One girl said FDR seemed very insincere during one of his speeches because he wasn’t standing. When I told her he had polio and was in a wheelchair, she dropped the course.
These were both college courses.
In seventh grade, I was at a lunch table that was kind of close to the teachers’ table so my science teacher, Mr.Winkler, turned around and asked me to get him an apple
so I went up, grabbed an apple, and walked back and he crinkled his absurdly thick eyebrows and was like, “I asked for a napkin. Did you pay for that?”
I stared for a really long time, wondering why I thought he said apple, then nodded, handed him the stolen apple anyway, and sat down.
This was 7 years ago and I’m still embarrassed and I think about it every time I see an apple, and every time Simon asks me to get apples at the store, I’m like, “APPLES, A-P-P-L-E-S, right? Not napkins?”
What If Your Friends Acted Like Your Pets
this is the greatest post. ever.
Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.
FINALLY SOMEONE FUCKING SAYS IT
fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.
DISNYEWORLD SAID: SUCKS FOR YOU. AT LEAST YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THERE WHEN DAD PLAYS HIS YOUTUBE VIDEOS AND MAKES US LISTEN AS HE TALKS ABOUT HOW GREAT HE IS~~
1. It’s a good thing. You’re going to get a live feed of every idiotic thing that happens while Sarah and I sit in the hallway to eavesdrop and mock everyone.
2. I thought you meant Ronnie for a sec, I was like, “HE HAS A YOUTUBE???”
3. I’m so sorry that happens to you
