tips to write college papers
- begin with “buckle your seatbelts, motherfuckers, because in eight short pages i am going to learn u a thing that i only learned myself about two hours ago, so sit down, shut up, and enjoy the experience of my 4-am-redbull-induced-self-hatred-fuelled-writing-extravaganza”
- erase when finished with the paper
BUT THIS ACTUALLY WORKS
MAKE SURE YOU ERASE IT THOUGH
"Student loans are just taxes for those not born rich and dare to get an education."
Shit is real son.
No, they’re not taxes. Taxes are usually used to improve something for society, like building roads or keeping public parks open or having a mail service or something. All my college education did was give me some knowledge. But without a somewhat steady job (aka a way to actually use that knowledge) I cannot improve anything around me. I cannot pay for myself, I cannot pay for others, I cannot improve upon society in any significant way.
This is beautiful. And on the topic of sleepovers and kids getting stuck in uncomfortable situations: My mom and I had a code, ever since my first sleepover. I would always call home to say goodnight, and if I asked “How is the cat doing?”, it meant that I wasn’t comfortable and I wanted her to pick me up. I did use this code a few times, and whenever I did, my mom came up with the excuses for me. I was never stuck at a sleepover I didn’t want to be at - and as a child with anxiety and social phobia, this was a great system.

This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
My comic; “Introversion” is finished! Please go to the main page of my blog to read it in full size (the text is kinda small)
I really hope you’ll like it!
This is remarkable. Those last few panels gave me feels. Good feels, though. :)
“Most people think I’m unhappy… But I’m not. I just appreciate silence in a world that never stops talking.”
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa

dataSTICKIES are the next generation of data portability. They are graphene-based flash drives that replace USB pen drives and hard discs.
USB-based drives can be inconvenient to use as the positioning and insertion of the drive in the USB slot needs to be done precisely. When the slots are at the rear of a device, as is the case for many desktop computers, this task becomes even more troublesome.
dataSTICKIES solve this problem by carrying data like a stack of sticky-back notes. Each of the dataSTICKIES can be simply peeled from the stack and stuck anywhere on the optical data transfer surface (ODTS), which is a panel that can be attached to the front surface of devices like computer screens, televisions, music systems, and so on. The special conductive adhesive that sticks the dataSTICKIES to the ODTS is the medium that transfers the data. This special low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive is capable of being reused without leaving marks like a repositionable note. When the dataSTICKIES are being read by the device, their edges light up.
Here’s the mini I made for Genghis Con! It came from a joke I made on twitter a while back about dogs and wi-fi.
I still have some physical copies of the book left so if you’re interested in buying one, send me a message or email or something. There are a lot of ways to contact me.
Please don’t tell me you’re buying into all this idiotic pre-hate…
The Snow Queen is a Scandinavian tale. Scandinavians (such as Danish and Swedes) are supposed to look white with blonde hair, which is what Disney’s designs are. I’m not trying to be racist here, but I don’t want the designs changed just for the sake of having non-white characters in a story that originates from a country of white-skinned people.
Seriously, political correctness and white people shaming have gotten out of hand…
meet the Sami, the indigenous people of Scandinavia, genetically connected to Inuit people:
and btw, it’s a fairy tail all on it’s own that majority of people who live there are blonde blue eyed, etc. most people have brown hair, surprise. Oh and also? at this point in reality, dark people live in those countries too. You do realize that those countries are not somehow exempt from dark people, right? I can only imagine how alienating it must be for a not-blonde, blue-eyed ~aryan dream~ that’s Swedish/Danish/Norwegian/Finnish to hear all this shit thrown around about how people from their country are SUPPOSED to look. Just like how gross it is when people assume I can’t be American because I’m not white.
Again: Disney has a history of transplanting stories from one culture into another and into animals (Oliver and Company for example). I have a feeling that if these were animals, you wouldn’t be so quick to defend how the animals weren’t staying true to its “Scandinavian” roots.
look inside yourself simba. figure out why you’re upset about dark people in your “white” fairy tale. and not the lions in your hamlet.
you just got schooled
As a scandinavian person I wholehearteadly agree. If this is a story that takes place in the kind of icy and snowy scenery that we’ve seen in the promotional stills it should be about the Sami people. Because believe it or not, not all of Sweden is a snowy fucking fairytale landscape. The cold is only that thick up north. Where I live on the westcoast we only have snow for about a month, then a lot of rain that turns the snow into ice and then everyone falls on the ice and old people break their legs. Yes. The winter in most parts of scandinavia is not as glamorous as people who haven’t been here think.
And even if this story were to take place in for example the midlands of Sweden, where it’s decently cold but the majority of people are still white, the way the characters are designed are still stereotypical and boring. “Scandinavians (such as Danish and Swedes) are supposed to look white with blonde hair”. Don’t tell me what people of my country are suppoused to look like. I don’t look like that. Most people aren’t blonde. We may have a higher percentage of blonde people compared to other places in the world but it doesn’t make up the majority of Sweden. And the main reason this is boring is because we’ve seen this before. I would love to see a story about the Sami because it’s a part of my country that I know sadly little about and seeing them represented in media would be interesting. And even if you want to make this story about a white scandinavian girl then at least make her interesting. Make her something we haven’t seen a thousand times.
