For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever...– The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (via jessicachu) Dumb movie but relevant quote.
3-D is a waste of a perfectly good dimension. Hollywood’s current crazy stampede...– Roger Ebert, making a pretty airtight case for why 3-D movies suck (via newsweek) Exactly! This is why I will never see a movie in 3-D. I mean, if a movie needs to be in 3-D to be good, whatever.
This summer will consist of:
The Good: knee length jersey dresses biking instead of driving! farmers markets Detroit and some other cool places my cat The Bad: being poor applying for jobs working for my dad living at home in the meantime
whatsupstairs: tmarie: “I don’t want to read online, I don’t want to wake up and look at a screen. I feel like as a society, we try to put everything on that same goddamn screen, and pretty soon we’re going to be eating on the screen or, like, making love through the screen. It’s just sort of like: ‘Why does everything have to be on the screen?” - dave eggers Yeah, basically.
I just defriended over a hundred people on...
I’m so proud of myself.
I finally finished reading All the King's Men
And it was so good. I mean, I’m sure you always told yourself you’d read it eventually, am I right? Well, fuck that. Go out and get yourself a copy, sit down and start reading it today. Seriously!
There is a merchant in Baghdad who sent his servant to buy provisions from the market and in a little while the servant came back, white and trembling, and said, Master, just now when I was in the market-place I was jostled by a woman in the crowd and when I turned I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture; now, lend me your horse, and I will ride away...
JMU Springfest Turns Ugly: Police, Tear Gas Needed... →
tylercoates: I never had much school spirit while I was at JMU and this is why; I knew a lot of great people who were really intelligent and mature. And then there was the other eighty-five percent of the population, one-hundred percent of which were assholes. There’s something really beautiful about watching thousands of white, suburban college students shout, “USA! USA!” while throwing beer...
At my age, it's easy to laugh at high schoolers. I...
So then, what about when I’m in my thirties? Or even just late-ish twenties? Will I think all college students are equally ridiculous? Probably.
What was her name, her home, her life, her past? He longed to know the furniture...– Sentimental Education by Gustave Flaubert (via balltillifall)
My cat only loves me when I eat potato chips.
Cats… why do any of us put up with this?
I'm kind of sick...
People are not supposed to get sick right when it starts to be nice outside! This is terrible, just terrible.
Barrage of new followers:
Where did you come from? And why are you all thirteen?
Oh bullshit it is not 4:30 already!
This keeps happening to me. How do I get motivated again? Three days in a row that I have accomplished almost nothing. I should probably go home this weekend. I’ll have to get something done there, even if it is just stupid errands.
In a culture smitten by CSI, NCIS, and Bones, it wasn’t surprising that the jury...– Begley, on what’s wrong with forensic science (via newsweek) This is all really interesting (and completely horrifying). Like Cameron Todd Willingham sentenced to death based on arson forensics that had never been studied; what the hell else are judges letting get by them? We put too much faith in...
You guys... I am about to attempt the impossible.
I am going to try and reduce the size of my wardrobe to something easily countable. With all the moving I’ll be doing over the next several months, it’s necessary. I’m aware that I only wear a fraction of my closet. I figure that if I really work to keep the number of items I have down to a minimum, I’ll actually invest in nice, quality things (instead of Forever 21). I...
I can't help but feel that people who get married...
I look at fb pictures and feel so awkward. And then I always end up imagining what it would be like if I was the mother of the bride.
Two things I have seen in the last week that I did...
a girl in one of my classes eating sugar from a sugar packet. a girl in another of my classes spend the entire two hours biting off her nail polish. Vomit.
It's kind of funny
How many of the girls I admired in high school for being pretty are now plain, or just basically unattractive.
david: Why is the expression “in case you get hit by a bus” and not a taxi? I’ve never heard of anyone getting hit by a bus, but I get hit by cabs almost every day. Six Feet Under made me terrified of buses. Also, I vaguely got hit by a car earlier in the year, and I didn’t stand a chance. If it had been moving any faster, I would’ve been so dead. Now I freak out sometimes when I...
Dumbest Google April Fools EVAR.
I was so excited. :(
