They are going to be the death of me. Someone stop me.

  “A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform  packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with  the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
  Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”

Happy September 1st, y’all!

ya hes cute…….but is he conscientious of the social inequalities and corruption in hierarchies of power that plague this world

let me tell you some VERY REAL REALITIES about the post-grad moving experience:

  • you’re going to hate your roommate during the pre-move in phase and wonder if you’ve made a HUGE, AWFUL MISTAKE AND SHOULD HAVE JUST GOTTEN A TINY STUDIO FOR YOURSELF
  • if you’re moving to a place in a big city - New York, like yours truly, for example - you’re going to spend a fuckton of money outside of rent that you NEVER in your college life considered: broker’s fee, furniture, toiletries, shit for your kitchen, shit for your bathroom, etc. etc. YOU WILL NEVER STOP BEING BROKE AFTER THIS
  • something will INEVITABLY go VERY VERY WRONG in the moving process, whether it’s waiting on furniture that never shipped, moving on a hot day in the middle of July when your apartment has no air conditioning, or forgetting toilet paper until you really REALLY need to pee. I just had to cancel my $600+ IKEA order because I wouldn’t have a bed in time for my move-in. Everything will suck, I can promise you that
  • the packing and unpacking process is ten times worse than whatever you had to deal with in college, I can GUARANTEE you that - you’re moving your entire life away for a permanent place of residence, so by the end of it you’ve got about 20 more bags of shit than you were anticipating
  • you will need (or want) some time off of work after which means taking a personal day which means missing a day of work which means coming back to about 300 emails the next day
  • you have to call the electric company and the cable company and occasionally the water company and nobody will be helpful and you’ll end up spending your first night internet or power-less and you’ll know it wasn’t your fault AT ALL but that’s just how the world spins

I move tomorrow morning, bright and early, so there’s still a hodgepodge of shit that could go wrong before that. We’ll see if I get out of this in one piece.

Where did you get those big eyes?

My mother.

And where did you get those lips?

My mother.

And the loneliness?

My mother.

And that broken heart?

My mother.

And the absence, where did you get that?

My father.

Anonymous asked: Advice by a guy who likes football: you should tone it down when it comes to what players you think are hot. That's why guys don't respect girls when it comes to football: they might now a thing or two, but they ruin it by being too vocal about the player's looks.

headsupgirl:

advice by a girl who doesn’t give a fuck: the reason why guys don’t respect girls when it comes to football is because those guys are insecure little pricks who are scared of a vagina with an opinion on something they consider to be strictly masculine and they try to disguise it as respect. ironically enough, we don’t want to be within a one mile radius of guys like you, so don’t worry, you’re safe, your home made girl repellent is working.

i’ve got news for you and the rest of the male chauvinistic pigs out there: a girl equalizing you in football knowledge does not make you less of a man. being a sexist ass with no balls to even show his face does. because a real man acknowledges a woman’s opinion without trying to resort to biology to rule it out. 

YOU should tone it down with the pep talk, buddy. i’m not apologizing for being a football fan who happens to be a straight woman. life is not a video game, you don’t need man points to get to the next level.

it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men. 

and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

Poor father sells all his land so 13-year-old daughter can enroll in microbiology master’s program in India

In a country where many girls are still discouraged from going to school, Sushma Verma is having anything but a typical childhood.

The 13-year-old girl from a poor family in north India has enrolled in a master’s degree in microbiology, after her father sold his land to pay for some of his daughter’s tuition in the hope of catapulting her into India’s growing middle class.

Verma finished high school at 7 and earned an undergraduate degree at age 13 — milestones she said were possible only with the sacrifices and encouragement of her uneducated and impoverished parents.

“They allowed me to do what I wanted to do,” Verma said in an interview, speaking her native language of Hindi. “I hope that other parents don’t impose their choices on their children.” (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)

It’s my hope that in the future, women of color will be able to forge careers in STEM without the necessity of sacrifices or financial hardship. Sushma Verma’s accomplishments can hopefully light our way forward.
