Been pouring over some interior design blogs today. I think the key to effective space usage (aka IKEA) is hugely dependent on wall mounts and vertical storage. To make everything easily accessible, and maximize the available floor space.
Unfortunately wall mounting takes effort.
LIGHTBULB MOMENT: no room in the world just COMES with wall mounted shelves. Damn.
Last year my room had blankets on the floor and a row of haphazard cardboard boxes in the corner. This year (+3), I’m going to be a real person. (:
After years of treading the line between getting-sucked-into-over-Facebook-stalking-because-of-the-never-ending-feed and not-willing-to-completely-quit-Facebook-because-it-genuinely-is-a-useful-source-of-communication (especially for my little photography business), I think I have finally found the solution to my problems.
Un-frickin’-follow EVERYONE who posts stuff, EVER! My feed only has things about me now. I never even realized I was allowed to be on my own feed, because I always had so much other crap on it.. Goodbye “friends” I never talk to but know every excruciating detail about. Out of sight, out of mind. I don’t really have problems keeping in touch with those that I care about. Plus I still get the little red notification flags on the top when I’m tagged/messaged so it’s all dandy. So essentially, a glorified email service. (:
And it only took ~20 minutes. To think I was contemplating making an ap for this. Silly me.
Little box on the bottom says: “There are no more posts to show right now.”. BOOM. I’m SO excited.
This is gonna be a game changer. Hello free time, good bye procrastination and making pre-emptive judgements about people.
(It’s not that I think people who spend more time on Facebook sharing links/pictures are superficial. More, that wasn’t how I wanted to that particular service to be provided, and I don’t think I had the self-control not to abuse the system and hurt myself. So win win.)
Ahhh… I’m old. SMBC is still gold.
1. This lady has no cerebellum (and associated reddit comments). What the flip. Considering what cerebellar disease does to people/animals in general, this is pretty amazing as a scientific curiosity. Yay using things I didn’t know I learned from Neuro.
Beyond that though. Sometimes I beat myself up because I’m bad at certain things. Why is Person better than me at life? Why can Dude do something else so easily? Why do I just plain SUCK BALLS at Activity? Sometimes, granted, I just need a little more patience and hard work. But sometimes, I guess, it’s just biology. Not to use this as an excuse for our flaws, but maybe what we need is a bit more acceptance for who we are inherently. Somewhere deep deep down inside, no matter how much we try to deny it, we’re just little biochemical machines. And we are all made of different components that work in synchrony. What is free will, seriously? (Side note: put this book on hold at the library, can’t frickin wait to read it!)
2. There are a shit ton of things that I want to do in life. Between me and FRICKING AWESOME DREAMS stands a shit ton of FRICKING UNFUN HARD WORK. Alternative is apathy, which kind of leads to meh life. I’ve kind of been slacking these first two weeks of school. But it’s time to bust my butt off now. No way around it.
A national rock band’s song was banned from their set list, so the Garden Spot marching band got to play with the band in a major concert instead.
Love this story! Lucky band!!
i’m so fucking jealous
some marching bands get to play with fall out boy
MY MARCHING BAND GETS FUCKING CANCELLED
LEAVE ME ALONE TO DIE <////////////3
Hey. College band is 100 better. No worries.
I am not smart with words, but I work hard every day of my life. When I come on boat I have only shirt and pants. The food is not kosher and I soon begin to starve. In middle of ocean, I trade pants for tin of herring. Is very cold without the pants. But I survive. They send me to Brooklyn and I find job in pickle factory. Every day, I crawl through gears and pull out rats. Is not so easy. The rats have sharp teeth and do not like to be touched. But I work hard. When I start in 1908 they pay me eighty cents each day. By 1912 they are giving me ninety cents, plus bowl of potato soup.
Little story that puts life into perspective. It’s a bit long, but worth the read. <3
I understand that growing up non religious in Texas is probably a hell of a lot harder than growing up non religious in Liberal central, Bay Area, California. Especially if you feel the need to hide your beliefs from your parents, gosh I can’t even imagine. I guess I understand the certain defensiveness that must come from constantly trying to come to terms with your own beliefs when everyone around you is telling you you’re just so wrong in your wrongness.
But, that’s not an excuse to bash religion as a concept. And it’s certainly not an excuse go on an anti-religious tirade at every possible opportunity.
Do you really think that by criticizing someone’s entire belief system the first time you meet them you’re going to change their outlook on life forever? Hell no, you’re probably going to make them way more defensive about atheism and anything outside their comfort zone. I suppose you mean well, but people like you are the reason why atheists get such a bad rep. You’re really not doing us any favors.
I think the reason why this bothers me so much is because I try pretty hard to show religious people that I’m not some spawn of Satan. I try to be approachable, I try to be okay and accepting and tolerant of religion, even when I feel like it steps out of line. I try so hard to show the conservative crowd I’m currently surrounded by that I can be my own person with values, ideas, and an inherent worth despite my beliefs. And you’re just ripping apart all my careful efforts. Thanks a lot bro.
