When I first joined tumblr, I created the account steampunkbanana. Then I created a second blog, (yellow-dress) but the thing is, every time I like a post or ask a question or follow someone, the person sees it as being from ‘steampunkbanana’, and there is no option to change that, or make yellow-dress my primary blog. And this is fucking annoying and confusing for people. And if I want to participate in a giveaway but have to be following the person, I can make as many reblogs as I like on yellow-dress, but the giveaway person will never see that ‘yellow-dress’ has followed them, and thus I might miss out! And I hate having to send asks from steampunkbanana because people are like who the fuck are you and I always have to say “yellow-dress” here!
Thing #2736297810794w753980-HYUGRFVbjdm I dislike about tumblr (along with the shitty search options, the failure to listen to reports of abuse, the pathetic excuse for a ‘blocking’ system, their scaremongering of people who use missing-e, not having the missing-e functions in the first fucking place, the fact that you can’t add commentary to ‘chat’ posts because it automatically comes up in the chat format and you can’t tell who wrote it, etc etc etc).
But tumblr is my life so I can’t complain too much.
Okay I am going to go into university tomorrow and officially drop out of all my courses. I will no longer be a uni student.
I have sent a job application to be an outreach campaigner for Greenpeace, and I’m writing a CV for Starbucks.
Am I throwing it all away? My parents were paying for me to go to uni, if I go back later I don’t think they’ll still pay. My grandma in Australia just sent me a lovely letter telling me how proud she was of me for going to uni, and that it would be hard but she knew that I would just love it and pull through.
I’ve had a few people say this is a good idea, but only because I’ll find a job so boring I’ll wish I could be back at univeristy. Which doesn’t exactly help.
I don’t know how I feel. :(
(Oh btw I got a B- for Psyc, B+ for Sociology and an A for Educational Psychology, so yay me, but unlike what everyone has told me, it hasn’t increased my confidence in my abilities and I just don’t think I’m up for uni. Sigh.)
I really loathe that people have this idea that there’s something inherently wrong, unintelligent, or unethical about profanity.
While I can agree that there are inappropriate settings for profanity, (ie- “We fucking gather here today…”) I don’t think that there’s anything “unladylike” (whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean) or not classy (whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean) about cursing.
Nor does my preference for the word fuck correlate to an inadequate vocabulary.
“We fucking gather here today…” - winning
I swear when I feel very passionate and strongly about something (e.g. telling pro-lifers that they are fuckwits). It doesn’t mean I am unintelligent or have a limited vocabulary, I just want to get my point across over the internet, as you can’t hear my tone of voice or see my facial expression.
The United States has ranked the nation with the highest amount of preventable deaths.
Researcher Ellen Nolte said the large number of Americans who lack any type of health insurance — about 47 million people in a country of about 300 million, according to U.S. government estimates — probably was a key factor in the poor showing of the United States compared to other industrialized nations in the study.
“I wouldn’t say it (the last-place ranking) is a condemnation, because I think health care in the U.S. is pretty good if you have access. But if you don’t, I think that’s the main problem, isn’t it?” Nolte said in a telephone interview. via
