I remember when I thought being an adult was going to be so cool. Then I was 27, in debt up to my eyeballs, in a relationship that I continually find ways to fuck up in unprecedented ways and making a couple dollars more than minimum wage. Can I be a kid again? #FuckUpForLIFE
I’ve narrowed it down. Now, to talk to my managers about the best way to go about doing tuition reimbursement…
So, I started looking for degrees I can do online from reputable Colleges/Universities.
Did you know you can earn an RN degree on line, but not an English degree?
Did you know you can earn a Veterinary degree on line, but not a Mathematics degree?
These seem a little asinine to me.
Mallory Ortberg of Gawker, critiquing CNN’s disgusting response to the Stuebenville rape trial verdicts.
Her commentary is spot on.
For readers interested in learning more about how not to be labeled as registered sex offenders, a good first step is not to rape unconscious women, no matter how good your grades are. Regardless of the strength of your GPA (weighted or unweighted), if you commit rape, there is a possibility you may someday be convicted of a sex crime. This is because of your decision to commit a sex crime instead of going for a walk, or reading a book by Cormac McCarthy. Your ability to perform calculus or play football is generally not taken into consideration in a court of law. Should you prefer to be known as ‘Good student and excellent football player Trent Mays’ rather than ‘Convicted sex offender Trent Mays,’ try stressing the studying and tackling and giving the sex crimes a miss altogether…
Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richardson are not the “stars” of the Steubenville rape trial. They aren’t the only characters in a drama playing out in eastern Ohio. And yet a CNN viewer learning about the Steubenville rape verdict is presented with dynamic, sympathetic, complicated male figures, and a nonentity of an anonymous victim, the ‘lasting effects’ of whose graphic, public sexual assault are ignored. Small wonder, then, that anyone would find themselves on the side of these men—these poor young men, who were very good at taking tests and playing sports when they were not raping their classmates.
THIS. TIMES A MILLION THIS.
Telling every woman to get a gun is not rape prevention. The reality is that we need to be changing how we train and teach young men. We need to teach them to see women as human beings and respect their bodily autonomy. We need to teach them about consent and to hold themselves accountable.
Totally being ignored right now. Awesome. #SorryISuck
It took me a while to figure out why this dress just screamed late 90’s to me … then it finally hit me! My 8th grade (1998) semi-formal dress was exactly this shape on top. The only difference was that it was lavender and had flower embroidery. I wish I had pictures for comparison…
