1. Every time I notice that I’ve lost a follower, I’m always surprised that I don’t know who it was.

    I’m always expecting it to be someone who I admire or care about and the I’m shocked to see that those people are still on my list of followers.

    So, I guess, thank you to everyone who is still following me. I don’t know why you do, but it’s nice.

    As suggested, I created an Indiegogo campaign for my fundraiser trying to make it to fourth year and graduation despite being poor/low-income. I was hesitant to create one because in my gut I’ve always felt guilty asking for help when I need it most. But I’m done putting my ego in front of what needs to be done - I need help getting through an extra year of university while battling depression and living in a room smaller than a walk-in closet.

    Please share if you can.

    Really not feeling the new Herbal Essences commercial “The Vegan.” Seriously fuck you Herbal Essences

    It was worse than I thought. I mean, it was kind of about “don’t call yourself vegan if you’re not vegan because wow it makes you look like a ditzy asshole” but also “lol I’m vegan but porkhamsausage ooh yum veganism would be better if it was about meat!”

    WHAT

    THE FUCK

    DID I JUST WATCH

    Interesting fact:

    The BBC series Doctor Who ended in 2010. It was replaced by a show called Doctor Who Cares Now That Steven Moffat’s in Charge. The title of the latter show is often shortened for the sake of brevity. This has caused much confusion amongst viewers with many believing that the two series are one and the same.

    does anyone else even care about doctor who anymore? did that post circulating about how Capaldi was vetoing Moffat’s decisions convince other people to watch it?

    Because I definitely saw no particular improvement in Deep Breath, except perhaps in the latter part of the episode.

    I saw a lot of improvement in some aspects, particularly in the way the Doctor interacted with the other characters, but other aspects were still very… Moffat-like. Most of Vastra’s dialogue was fairly awful in particular.

    I do see potential for improvement, though. In particular, the writing for the Doctor seems to imply “look, we know we’ve fucked this up a bit, so this is our attempt to make things better.” Obviously saying this is much different from actually doing it, but I can at least cling to a small bit of hope.

    Anyway, it was only the first episode. I’m gonna give it a few more before I make any judgements on the new Doctor. At the very least, it wasn’t bad, just not impressive.

    What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.

    Anonymous said: Could you clarify your tuition situation for me a bit. Are you in debt to your school or to the financial aid service you got? I've known tons of people who took loans out to their eye balls in college and never seemed to have a problem since repayments didn't start until post grad. I'm just curious as im not sure how it works for you. I hope everything ends up working out for you though ∊◠ᴥ◠∍

    I’m in debt to my school, meaning I can’t apply for this year’s classes until I’ve cleared a significant portion of the debt. The student assistance program I’ve used for all of university pays for some of my fees since I’m a low-income student, but part of it is like a managed loan that I don’t have to pay off until after university. I haven’t taken out any student loans from my bank, since I’ve never been allowed to apply for one. I haven’t been listed as an independent before this year, despite having lived away from home paying rent for the last couple of years. My financial situation was always calculated as my family’s financial situation, and my mother doesn’t have an income that let me qualify for a loan. When she did come into some money by selling the house she received in my grandfather’s will, she refused to sign off on a loan for me and made both me and my sister live in an apartment infested by cockroaches and mold. (It mentally traumatized me so much that whenever I have anxiety late at night, it feels like cockroaches are crawling on me…)

    I might be able to take out student loans this year, but I’m not making a large income either - until I get a second job, which I haven’t gotten yet because I don’t have a large enough income to pay for a phone line and bus tickets all the time…

    I’ve been to the financial office, and was told that once I’ve paid down some student debt with my university, I can apply for the student assistance program this year, which could help me further pay off that debt. It might also help me pay for living expenses during the school year, which I desperately need help with. Only then can I finally apply for classes.

    Classes begin September 4th, and my last day for registration is September 12th. I have 20 days to raise enough money or else I can’t attend university this year. Even if I don’t have the money within the next 20 days, I still have to find some way to pay it off - the only difference is I’d be paying to probably not get my degree.

    If anyone’s reading this and wants to help out, click the donate button in the top-left corner of my blog. To put it in perspective: if every one of my followers donated $1, I’d be able to go back to school.

    If you can’t donate, please reblog!

    Two scientists walk into a bar:

    "I’ll have an H2O."

    "I’ll have an H2O, too."

    The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.
