Ohhhh my god

I get really irritated, because whenever I make the mistake of being nice and friendly to a guy who I consider a casual friend from class or an internship, they ask me out on a date. Then I have to slow fade out on them. You’d think I would have learned by now, but apparently not. 

Why can’t they just stay in their (friendship) lane, though? Why do they see someone being friendly and then immediately have to make it about dating? Once someone does that, I’m out.

There are precisely 1,400,852 Americans currently serving the military both at home and abroad.

Whisper — an app which allows users to anonymously post messages — gives us a glimpse into the deepest, most emotionally-tinged thoughts of these men and women.

So important.  I’m always saying that so many soldiers take that path because they don’t have any other option, like college.  In a lot of instances they are flat out lied to.  The government legit gives military branches money to fund a position that is intended to con people into joining the military.

Winner for Guest Actress, Comedy Series at #EmmysArts is @UzoAduba, @OITNB!

I don’t understand why some people get angry about Peter Pettigrew being left out of artistic, fancasting, whatever, depictions of the Marauders. He joined the Death Eaters, the most evil people in the wizarding world basically, and LITERALLY BETRAYED HIS BEST FRIENDS AND CAUSED THEM TO BE MURDERED. He killed 12 innocent non-magical people in his confrontation with Sirius, and caused Sirius, an innocent man, to spend 12 years in Azkaban for a crime he did not commit. Then - as if that wasn’t enough - he helped Voldemort come back, which caused all the deaths and trauma brought on by the Second Wizarding War.

Peter Pettigrew was human slime and I cannot take anyone who defends him seriously. “But he was still a Marauder!” bullshit. He lost that when he became a murderer of innocent people and ruined Lily, James, and Sirius’s lives.

what’s happenin in korea

You want to know what’s happening? Korea’s education system is literally the most rotten piece of shit to ever exist. 
Let me explain the context of the poster on the left. 
The average time a kid spends in school in the US is 900 to 1000 hours per year, spread between 175-180 days (x)
In 2007 there were mass student protests in Netherlands because they increased the hours spent in school to 1040 hours per year, or 8 hours a day, 130 days a year. (x)
Korean high schools, on the other hand, enact a 3150 policy, 225 days of school with 14 hours a day, or from 8 am to 10 pm (x)
Also due to the private education sector of hagwons and the fierce competition of Korean high schools, basically after school kids go to hagwons, or personal academies, till 2, 3 in the morning, fit in maybe 4, 5 hours of sleep and go back to school. (x)
It was only in 2012 that schools went from having classes on Saturday excluding the first and third Saturday, and it was only in 2007 when they changed from having class every Saturday. (x)
This system is literally the epitome of the factory schooling system which comes as a result of a capitalistic schooling system and it works kids too hard which is one of the reasons Korean school kids are some of the unhappiest of pretty much any OECD country. (x)
For the photo on the right, physical punishment is not fully banned in Korea. 
Since 2011, Seoul, Gyunggido, Gangwondo, and Julla Bukdo have banned the use of direct physical punishment, or basically hitting kids with either tools or physically with their body. That being said that’s basically only about half of South Korea. 
Also, indirect physical punishment such as making kids to planks, make them kneel with their hands up, making them run laps, or of the sort is still fully acceptable in all Korean schools. (x)
Anybody who’s a Korean in a Korean school right now already has experience with getting beat by a teacher and some kids still have to deal with physical punishment by teachers.

Watch: Hidden camera reveals the harassment little person Jonathan Novick faces every day

Jonathan Novick is a young man living in New York City who happens to be a little person. As he demonstrates in his short autobiographical documentary Don’t Look Down on Me, the simple fact of his condition can attract all manners of harassment in his day-to-day life.

Novick wore a hidden camera and walked around New York City for a day — that’s right, just one day of filming gave him more than enough footage for his mini-doc. While some of the encounters are uncomfortable but not malicious — children giving him curious looks, people asking him about Little People, Big World — others are indefensibly inappropriate and demeaning. One man asks Novick for a picture as though he is a walking photo-op, while others take pictures of him without even asking for his permission.

"Yes, but that’s still a minority! If more women played video games, there would be more reason to have female protagonists!"

Anonymous said: i apologize if i'm intruding, but are you adopted?

No, it’s fine. I’ve kept it a secret my entire life because I feel like it has no bearing on my life, but I talk about just about everything openly on this blog anyway. :) I am, and was happily absorbed into my current family unit at birth. My parents ARE my parents, unquestionably. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that makes me angrier than people who refer to someone’s biological parents as their “real” parents, or imply or state that the love between parents and adopted children is “lesser” in any way than the “biological connection.” There is so much ignorance in those statements. 

Tumblr has recommended the blog “mydogjustdied” to me AND put its posts on my dashboard. Tumblr, you sick fucks. Why would you do this?

Sometimes people (cough extended family members cough) have given me shade about why I don’t want my biological parents to be part of my life, and sometimes people (cough my mom cough) question why I don’t want a boyfriend or to date. All I have to say is this: All of the “holes” in my life are filled. My life is complete. I feel satisfied, enriched, and fulfilled by my all my relationships - my parents, my friends, my canine companion. I don’t need anything more. I’m a very lucky person.
