Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xx 

If your mom will seriously hinge you going to your dream college on a set amount of internet points I have some concerns. Good luck with that…

WHEN I WAS IN 8TH GRADE I DIDN’T HAVE A PHONE OR AN IPOD SO I WOULD LITERALLY PRINT OUT FANFICS AND READ THEM AT SCHOOL

remember the struggle, kids.

printed in four columns in size ten font for maximum fic per page ratio

Flashback to giant binders full of fics and extremely expensive printing cost

My dad gave me his old pda, I never realized how lucky I was until now.

Except last I checked neither the bible or the quran say those things unless you take them out of context. I can’t specifically speak for the quran, but for the bible you’re talking about Deuteronomy 22:28, right?

"(28)If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, (29) he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives." (New International Version)

Now I can understand how this sounds pretty horrific. I mean, can you imagine a young woman being married to her abuser in this day and age? At least ten online petitions would be made for one case alone. However, that’s today. Let’s consider a few things before making what is the obvious judgement here.
As much as we don’t like it, and as much as I’m sure God doesn’t like it, this situation wasn’t made for the bible, but a pre-Christ middle east world where woman were often seen as property. It was very hard to be a woman then, especially an unmarried woman. For a relevant example, if a woman was discovered to have lost her virginity before marriage? She would be accused of adultery. The punishment was stoning.
How much is fifty shekels of silver? The short version is that fifty shekels is the “bride price”, or a dowry, and not exactly a cheap one. But since this is such a heavy subject, I’m making the effort to find something comparable. Now, after scouring google I found this webpage with a handy chart of comparative prices: ones right next to the fine for adultery are the price of a slave and the price of a plot of land. You may notice looking at it that this adultery fine is actually pretty low ($530, really???) however that is adjusting for inflation and can be taken as secondary information. But did you notice how the bride price and the price for a plot of farmland are the same? So if you rape a virgin, imagine paying the same amount to marry her as you would for a house. And you have to pay it, and you have to take care of this woman you felt a need to violate. And since her whole family knows, not to mention yours, God help you if get abusive or try to put her away! Despite what those who are violently against arranged marriage will say, the majority of fathers both then and now care about their fathers, and men who abuse said daughters- especially if the daughter can’t do anything about it because of marriage- have a death wish. SO that particular passage was to discourage scumbags. (“do I really want to marry and take care of this girl if I get caught? Is it worth it?” which by the way, is the idea)
Now let’s look at the Satanist bible, and by extension, Satan. Now let’s think about it critically. If you were a lord of lies, a deceiver, someone constantly going against God and trying to bring as many people down with you, what better way than to skew the facts a little and promote your own religion that says “I can give you whatever sounds good”? Has anyone seen the new Muppet movie? If you have, have a good look at Constantine and how that turned out.
I’d really like to see follow-up from a practicing Muslim defending the allegation against their book, since I don’t know much about what is says, what the context is or where it can be found, (and maybe a Satanist too! If we’re being thorough we should look at all of the text instead of just the two being put in a bad light) but that’s my piece relating to the bible.
And yes, I know there’s really no winning with this, and that in this day and age and culture there would be no excusing it, but not taking the time to point out the cultural and most importantly historical factors of passages like that, or neglecting to give people all the information you can so that people can make educated choices, is just as bad as endorsing it.

Hate “Blurred Lines”? You’ll LOVE this!

One of two weird things my cat likes: milk and bread. She has no reason to like either of these things and yet every time I get either I get a begging cat.
I’ll try to get a pic of her with bread later.

This, my friends, is Madame CJ Walker and she was the first African American woman to ever successfully create her own line of hair products for other African American women.

I remember seeing this! She was portrayed in America (the movie that just came out). Really cool stuff. Oh hey, go see that movie if you haven’t, if only to see how well this amazing woman was portrayed!

This is my kitty! I like taking pictures of her for fake internet points! :)
Her name is Jade and I’ve had her since I was about 11 or 12, so she’s getting along in years. She came to our household with her two siblings, her sister Jessie and her brother Rascal.
There are three of us siblings, and we each wanted a cat but didn’t want to share.(how sharing do you think three young children are going to be anyway?) So when our folks found out about someone who’s cat had just had a litter, we went over and met the three kittens that were left. They had grown up in a house with two little boys, so for the first year or so we had them they’d hide under the bed whenever someone so much as dropped a pillow. Especially Jessie, who had originally had the name Scooter because of how skittish she was.
I say was because we’ve, um, already lost Jessie to cancer.(I’d talk about her more, but the sister who knew and loved her most has a tumblr and I feel she’d be better suited to honoring her memory than me) And there’s reason to believe Rascal is starting to go blind. And I know Jade won’t live forever, even though she hasn’t shown signs of anything specific yet. It’s just, no matter how often I’ve got annoyed at her for waking me up early, or gotten upset at her puking on my stuff, I love my cat. All of us love our cats, and this is how I’d like to remember her when she finally goes.
So every once in a while I’ll post a low-quality webcam pic of Jade. Because that feels more casual or intimate, I don’t know. Just… never feel bad or strange or awkward about loving a pet or missing it when it’s gone. Because if you don’t have that bond on some level you never really got to know them in the first place.

OH I’M SORRY MY BEING IN PAIN FROM A KIDNEY STONE CAUSED THE EXPENSIVE AMBULANCE RIDE

HAD I KNOWN IT WOULD BE SUCH A PROBLEM I WOULD HAVE TRIED  TO PASS OUT INSTEAD BECAUSE THAT WOULD HAVE HELPED

I mean I know she was just trying to tell me I need to control my reactions but past my own parents only our doctor ever seemed to give a crap while I was in the worst pain I’ve ever known, and now she drops this bombshell on me.

Just. Ugh. At least this isn’t a total relationship breaker between me and my mom but I can’t believe she in effect blamed me for being in pain.

I was actually trying to control myself as much as I could, but between not knowing what was going on, thinking I’d have to go into emergency surgery, and the most excruciating 20 minutes of my life because they didn’t feel a need to get there in any hurry, while an EMT in the apparently very expensive ambulance tells me to stop screaming because it was “disrespecting” him(meanwhile I keep thinking that at my pain level from the kidney stone and the iv he tried to tear the skin of my hand with he was not necessarily entitled to my good mood), and then having people in the emergency room telling me to be quiet, with them and my own DAD trying to make me shut up so that I wouldn’t scare other patients(a sign that I probably should have driven myself to the hospital, amirite?) yes, I was loud. Yes, I screamed some. No, I didn’t try to exaggerate the situation, I was in the absolute worst pain of my life and nobody was telling me what was going on, so I was in pain and scared.

So, sorry? Not sure what I could have done about that, but I guess it’s all my fault.

I found this camera on the subway and look what was inside…
