...with no imagination or sense of humor. Whovian, atheist, 21, IB Graduate, nuclear engineering major, American, probably will become a mad scientist some day. likes science-fiction everything, reading, knitting, Classic Who, Loki, Marvel, Elder Scrolls, League of Legends (if you ever want to play send me a message!), Minecraft, A Song of Ice and Fire, orchestral music, and a multitude of other things. May exhibit some unpopular opinions (mostly about Doctor Who because I'm a cranky 90's novel fan). Currently reading: The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett

I am so not ready to graduate and move away. 

Can the HoC just come with me? I’m sure you guys can find jobs around where I can actually work.

Just don’t disappear on me.

Option 4: Take an online class so I can so pretty much everything in Option 3 while not getting judged for being a lazy shit. BUT online classes are FUCKING EXPENSIVE HOLY SHIT.

I still don’t know what I’m going to do this summer if I don’t get anything.

Option 1: Stay in college town alone and take a class while maybe getting to volunteer in the reactor. If the reactor staff will have me, it could be good experience to put on the resume. (Fun, but so much loneliness. Those little hometown shits better visit me)

Option 2: Go home and take a class at local state school. Downsides: having to do all the shit to figure out what I’m going to take, make sure the credit will transfer to my university, and register. Upsides: No loneliness. Non-shitty internet. Get to see hometown friends. Don’t have to do all the clean up after myself. Don’t have to feed myself.

Option 3: Go home and do nothing. Downsides: get judged by parents for being a lazy piece of shit with no job and no classes. Upsides: get to do whatever I want when I want which will amount to lying around in my pjs playing video games.

Welp I just sent in my last ditch effort to get some form of internship this summer.

Hopefully since they’re selecting people so late, everyone who’s a better candidate than me already has something and won’t apply.

The truth is, everyone likes to look down on someone. If your favorites are all avant-garde writers who throw in Sanskrit and German, you can look down on everyone. If your favorites are all Oprah Book Club books, you can at least look down on mystery readers. Mystery readers have sci-fi readers. Sci-fi can look down on fantasy. And yes, fantasy readers have their own snobbishness. I’ll bet this, though: in a hundred years, people will be writing a lot more dissertations on Harry Potter than on John Updike. Look, Charles Dickens wrote popular fiction. Shakespeare wrote popular fiction - until he wrote his sonnets, desperate to show the literati of his day that he was real artist. Edgar Allan Poe tied himself in knots because no one realized he was a genius. The core of the problem is how we want to define “literature”. The Latin root simply means “letters”. Those letters are either delivered - they connect with an audience - or they don’t. For some, that audience is a few thousand college professors and some critics. For others, its twenty million women desperate for romance in their lives. Those connections happen because the books successfully communicate something real about the human experience. Sure, there are trashy books that do really well, but that’s because there are trashy facets of humanity. What people value in their books - and thus what they count as literature - really tells you more about them than it does about the book.

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.

It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats. 

Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.

The rest of the space is going to be pretty pissed when they see this. 

did you google how to take a screen shot


Because I need to be a buzzkill on a funny post, it looks like this person is on a Mac, judging from what the tabs look like, and taking a screenshot on a Mac is actually really unintuitive. There’s no print screen button like on most PCs.
