“Conservatives are trained not to use the language of liberals. Liberals are not so trained. Liberals have to learn not to stick to their own language, and not move rightward in language use. Never use the word “entitlement’ - social security and medicare are earned. Taking money from them is stealing. Pensions are delayed payments for work already done. They are part of contracted pay for work. Not paying pensions is taking wages from those who have earned them. Nature isn’t free for the taking. Nature is what nurtures us, and is of ultimate value - human value as well as economic value. Pollution and deforestation are destroying nature. Privatization is not eliminating government - it is introducing government of our lives by corporations, for their profit, not ours. The mission of government is to protect and empower all citizens, because no one makes it on their own. And the more you get from government, the more you owe morally. Government is about “necessities” - health, education, housing, protection, jobs with living wages, and so on - not about “programs.” Economic success lies in human well-being, not in stock prices, or corporate and bank profits.”—
i have been doing so much homework. this is such a change from how much homework i usually do, which is admittedly, almost none. i do what has to be done. like i will do an assignment that needs to be turned in, but i won’t do the reading, etc. that is how much work it takes me to have a GPA average of about an B+ . the problem is, i need to have something much closer to a 4.0 to dream of financial aid. right now, i get $5,000, but that’s just because my sister goes to northeastern now. before that i got none. all of my everything is loans because that’s the choice i made. i could go to a state school for much less money, or go to a private school for a lot of money. at the time though, i was planning on getting a Ph.D. in psychology, and in that situation, the difference between a state school diploma and a private school diploma means a lot more than in a lot of other fields. it’s academic, what can i say? so anyway, now i made this choice, and now i’m not getting a Ph.D. in psychology. now i’m planning on getting an MSW (masters in social work), where state schools really do make way more sense. additionally, i am facing this problem: assuming me and will are together in two years when i’ll be in grad school, he’ll have to move wherever i go to school/ i’ll have to move where he gets a job. Will doesn’t want to leave boston yet, and i’m totally ready to head back to the burbs. the problem with this problem, is that there are no state schools in boston that offer social work, so i’d have to go to another private university in boston, for us to be able to stay another 2 years, but i can’t afford to do this. So, if i can’t get enough financial aid from a private school in boston, we can’t live here, and will can’t really work in boston easily (he could probably take a commuter train in and then the t, but that means paying for a car, a train ticket, and a subway (t) ticket, not to mention that in the suburbs, i’d also probably need a car to get to class/work. where the fuck are either of us going to get cars? we don’t have any money! we’d have to add that to my loan money, or finance a car. and if we’re going to be doing all this shit together with money, in addition to the fact that we already live together and have a cat together, that’s like pretty much being married, and like are we ready to essentially be married? idk. so now, instead of being able to focus on my homework, i’ve worked myself into exhaustion and psychosis and homework isn’t even about homework anymore, it’s about the rest of my life being NOW, and how everything i am doing is part of the puzzle that will someday become the future. it’s nuts. i am so stoned.
“Rape isn’t a ‘natural hazard’ like a cliff edge that women must be careful to avoid when drunk - it is a wilful act of violence perpetrated by another human being and the responsibility lies with the perpetrator not the victim. Drinking alcohol is not illegal or wrong. Perpetrators are in control of their actions. A woman is never responsible for a man raping her. But society’s morals and logic currently display a yogic ability to bend over backwards to accommodate, accept and normalise the reality of violence against women. Studies show that people who display high levels of sexism are more likely to accept the idea that women can be to blame when a man rapes them. This propensity to blame victims and often to absolve the perpetrators allows the cultures that breed sexist violence to go unchallenged. Victim-blaming must also end for the real cause of sexist violence - gender inequality - to come into full view.”—The Equality Illusion, Kat Banyard (via petitefeministe)
Today, I was given the ultimate ultimatum: either I suffer excruciating stomach pains and remain a hostage to the porcelain whirlpool goddess, or I stop taking pain medication and face the wrath of a raging infection in my jaw. FML
this is my life except it looks like these people have a poop problem and i have a throwing up everything problem which results in a huge swollen red face.
this is what i have to decide whenever i throw my back out, and this is what i have to decide between when i get my wisdom teeth out, which is most of the reason that i’m so nervous.
For many, the internet is the last haven of free speech. The Egyptian people were using it to communicate with each other, to warn each other, to help each other. Just like in Iran, these people depended on the…
yes, the madame hatter sets this straight well. just an FYI, because i have seen people posting that egypt is rioting because they took the internet away.
Today has been a success and I’ve only been awake for 90 minutes!
going to a salon that caters to curly hair is totally worth it!! the haircuts are usually more expensive, but the haircuts i get from curly hair salons actually last a while, whereas i feel like regular haircuts look old on me so quickly.
school is kind of taking over my existence people. sorry.
right now my GPA is at a place where i can get into any of the schools for social work, but they probably won’t give me financial aid. i need financial aid. so, now i’m going to be spending this semester and next semester just working my little ass off to try to get all A’s so that my GPA goes up.
idk though, sozzney tends to know way more about cats than i do, but this doesn’t look exactly like twisted leg syndrome to me. usually the legs will self correct before kittens start walking, and even if they didn’t, i wouldn’t assume the cat would develop special abilities to jump like a rabbit. it also wouldn’t eat carrots. i’m confused. either the original post is a lie and the cat doesn’t eat carrots and veggies, or the original post isn’t lying and this really is a special cat and not just a cat with twisted legs.
i DO NOT buy new textbooks. and by new, i mean i don’t even purchase used current editions. i haven’t purchased books from the hofstra bookstore since freshman year. i only buy books online (older editions. for a dollar+shipping most of the time), and for most classes i don’t even purchase the books. so imagine my dismay this morning when i look at the 15-page syllabus for one of my classes, and my professor is telling us we can only buy one edition of the book and it’s $140. no, that’s not acceptable my last semester senior year and i don’t give a shit.
also, it’s snowing way too much. i don’t want to walk to campus in this.
I’m in a similar situation. I refuse to buy books this semester, and when I saw my criminology syllabus, I saw that I had to buy a book that even used on amazon, it’s $88. I don’t even have that much money. It isn’t fair how that has to be the case.
Twice, I’ve gone to the library to go read it and it’s been taken out. FML
ugh this whole deal is why i am such a freaky saver when it comes to money. i mean i go out and i spend money, but i also work way more than i have to and stress myself out because so much of my savings every year gets spent on books. one semester, books cost me over $500. it’s nuts. in psychology, it’s hard because things change so quickly and there are new developments and so they are always publishing new editions and i am always just crying about it. (not literally). I’ve already spent about $200-$250 and i have to spend at least $80 more, and that’s if i go with the cheapest option (which i’m not so keen on), buying the kindle edition from amazon (i don’t have a kindle so i’d have to read it from my computer). ugh. this is why, even though i can afford it, i’m nervous to get the iphone.
