“I get worried for young girls sometimes; I want them to feel that they can be sassy and full and weird and geeky and smart and independent, and not so withered and shriveled.”—Amy Poehler (via lipstick-feminists)
I will not support the stigmatization of an important medical procedure. This does not mean I am anti-choice, anti-child, or anti-family. All it means is that I support abortion being a safe, legal, and accessible procedure for all those that want it.
Try eating an apple, followed by a glass of cold water. Someone gave me this tip years ago, and, most of the time it actually works better than coffee, pills, and Redbull. All else fails, try a power nap…just make sure it’s no longer than 20mins.
thanks! i’ll try that when i go out and do errands. i’m at work and don’t have any apples now.
i am like getting basically nothing done today. i already drank a coffee. ate a caffeine pill drank a glass of water, and drank a diet coke and nothing will wake me up.
i can’t even focus for like 10 minutes without getting distracted.
i need to write a paper tonight and really should do a bunch of reading but in reality i’m going to not do any reading and write this paper really half-assed and then i’m going to lay down and go to bed.
that’s after i have positively have to do three errands. one to go to the bank, one to pick up our jackets from the dry cleaners one to pick up other stuff.
i do. i’m going to start using it more i think so that i can talk about personal things that maybe i don’t want freely floating on the internet. it’s friends only but i’d love more company over there so if you have a username, just reply to this and i’ll add you on livejournal.
turned out actually nice i decided that i was just taking the day off from life and avoiding responsibilities because fuck it i just needed a day off. so, i didn’t wake up until 11:30 spent almost two hours cuddled in bed laughing and talking. watched tv all day. ate left over chinese food. now drinking spiced (and spiked) cider soon watching movies/ tv shows, making popcorn and having more snuggles.
it was supposed to be tonight but we changed our reservations to next saturday because of a bunch of silly reasons all combined.
1.it is raining and snowing and i was going to wear a dress and that would just be so shitty in this weather
2.we were really really lazy and procrastinated dropping our winter jackets at the dry cleaners and so now they are at the dry cleaners so we don’t have coats.
3.it’s halloween weekend and the t to/from allston is just a hot mess on halloween weekend. -side note:i took the last t from allston 3 years ago from a party and people were legit crowd surfing. i also watched two girls throw up on themselves during the same ride.
“My part of Oakland is full of poor people. There’s at least one murder a week. Old creeps pimp out teenaged girls in broad daylight. You can buy crack or heroin 30 feet from my door, and two of my neighbors have been held up at gun point this summer. And the City of Oakland says they don’t have the police to stop any of that.But a bunch of people protesting the fact that rich people got a bail out and everyone else got nothing? The city shuts them down tight. Bang. Done. Riot act. Do you ever get the feeling you’ve bean cheated? I do. Every day.”—@el_gallo on BoingBoing.com (via lordmoudemort)
Millions of people have been foreclosed upon in the last three years. In most all of those foreclosures, a regional law enforcement office — typically a sheriff’s office — was awarded fees by the court as part of the foreclosure settlement, settlements which of course were often rubber-stamped by a judge despite mountains of perjurious robosigned evidence.
That means that every single time a bank kicked someone out of his home, a local police department got a cut. Local sheriff’s offices also get cuts of almost all credit card judgments, and other bank settlements. If you’re wondering how it is that so many regional police departments have the money for fancy new vehicles and SWAT teams and other accoutrements, this is one of your answers.
What this amounts to is the banks having, as allies, a massive armed police force who are always on call, ready to help them evict homeowners and safeguard the repossession of property. But just see what happens when you try to call the police to prevent an improper foreclosure. Then, suddenly, the police will not get involved. It will be a “civil matter” and they won’t intervene.
“MarketWatch reports that on Wednesday, the President will go into detail about his plan, which will include rule changes that allow private and government loans to be consolidated under the same government program and paid back with a lower interest rate. Obama will also announce plans to move a regulation that caps the amount of your income that can go toward repaying loans at 10% from 2014 to next year. With a $30,000 per year income (let’s say we are all beautiful souls who perform thankless but necessary entry level nonprofit work), no matter how much you owed, your obligation for repayment would be capped at $3,000, or $250 per month. Not too shabby.”—President Obama’s plan to make your student loans less horrifying. I’M ACTUALLY CRYING TEARS OF JOY. (via pluralisms)
OMG THIS MEANS THAT BEING A SOCIAL WORKER JUST MIGHT NOT ACTUALLY MAKE ME FORCED TO LIVE IN MY PARENTS BASEMENT FOR MY WHOLE LIFE.
“There was no subliminal message. In fact, I personally would encourage people not to smoke. It’s just that I’m a smoker. A lot of the people on the staff said ‘Just let Block be Block.’ That’s what it was all about.”—
I’ve recently been asked to move into an apartment closer to my work and am taking up the opportunity to move in. The one problem is that I don’t have someone to sublet yet. I figured I’d get this posted on as many social networking sites as I could to try and find someone I know or someone a friend knows before I throw it on craigslist.
It’s from December-September and rent is 625$ a month plus utilities (we have cable, internet and a warm house without the heat being turned on). It’s a five bedroom second floor apartment. I live with two boys and two girls, all of them students who are mostly only home at night and are all gone in the early hours of the morning. There’s one big bathroom with great water pressure in the shower. The apartment is really spacious and cozy, with great sunlight in the whole place. The oven kinda sucks but the stove top works just fine. Everyone in the house keeps up with their messes and stays on time with bills. The landlady keeps up awesomely with problems in the apartment too. There’s laundry in the basement, a backyard, and a back porch that I am definitely going to miss the most.
It is located at the top of Calumet, right next to Hillside Market. It’s a five minute walk to the stop that the 39, 66, and E-line pick up (way faster than the B or C trains! I got to Park Street in 12 minutes from here). It’s about a ten minute walk to the orange line. There’s so many places to eat and a Stop n Shop right at the bottom of the hill. It’s a ten minute walk from Wentworth, Northeastern, and Massart.
My room is a decent size. Its big enough for me to have a full sized bed, a dresser, an entertainment center and a side table. It has a closet that I spent an hour scrubbing when I first moved in so it’s in really good shape too. The floors are all hardwood in the apartment besides the tiled bathroom.
If you’re interested in coming to see the place, please email me at email@example.com. Tell yr friends! And if you have a second please reblog this for me! Thanks guys!!
