being enthusiastic about certain things and expressing them how you want doesn’t fuck up your personality as long as you’re not attacking someone. but there’s something very comforting in sharing references and ships w/ppl who feel like you do.
I totally get that! All I’m saying is there’s a very fine line between that and completely aggressively defining your existence on a medium you have no involvement in other than your consumption of it
The line gets blurred a lot around here and it’s why fandoms tend to get lumped around a lot, but only a very small but very vocal number are to blame
I disagree.You saying its fucking stupid makes you sound naive. Its important for every generation to acknowledge what came before.When you don’t teach your kids about your time & the time before, they miss out on things that changed us or world.
Yeah, that makes complete sense
There’s a difference between acknowledging what came before and appreciating the change in society and eras and trends, and expecting your kids to act the way you did at their age when things are usually extremely different and think that that’s okay
I don’t know your parents’ age or your age, but it’s a hypothetical example: How crappy would you feel today if you were brought up in the ‘90’s to act like a “70’s kid”?
I actually really loved every second of it! I grew up with Buffy and X-Files, and this is deliciously along those same lines. But I have a hard time justifying TV to myself, in general. I went without one for several years, and it’s always made more sense to me to be online and be entertained by many sources at once, as opposed to being glued to just one. Maybe I’ll just give myself one a week or something, as that seems sensible.
the seasons only get better as it goes on. I didn’t REALLY get into it until the 2nd season. it totally picks up.

Omg fun! I dont think I could ever live in another country. I love to travel and visit other countries, but I’m too Americanized to live anywhere else. I like our roadtrips and theme parks and food too much! lol.
I’m moving to America! And am now excited for the roadtrips and theme parks and food.
okay from your tumblr i just assume you are pretty and dainty and uber british and that you drink tea and prance around in fairy wings through the woods and you sparkle like the gods of a 1000 golden suns
Hahaha!!! Ahhhh, how did you know?! I do prance around in fairy wings through woods and sparkle like the gods of a 1000 golden suns! You’re good.
I feel like the sass you had on that persons post was unnecessary. The one that references what high school does/doesn't teach. You can be snarky, half the time I am as well, but their point is still the same. Many H.S. don't educate you on real life skills/basic living. The majority of extensive knowledge in science and math are things most of us will never actually use in day to day adult life. Luckily, my high school taught those important life lessons. Unfortunately, not all schools do.
I probably was excessively sarcastic, but here’s the point I was making. The real-life skills they mentioned are good ones to have, but I literally explained pretty much everything you could know about them as a teenager in my sassy reblog. I think more high schools should have some form of a Home Economics class. That could be useful.
But let me speak in defense of high schools teaching math and science.
Yeah, you may graduate, get a job or college major in a non-scientific field, and never use biology, chemistry, physics, geometry, or calculus again. Then again, you might want to go into a STEM field. There are exciting things happening in science and engineering right now, and, in a country where most young adults are unemployed, these are fields that are actually growing. If you’re a high school sophomore, you probably don’t know yet what you want to pursue as a career. That’s fine. I didn’t work it out until much later than that. But if you want to apply to an engineering school, and your high school didn’t give you the science and math background the field requires, you won’t get in. You just won’t. I’ve seen it happen.
Of course, it’s quite possible that you won’t want to go into STEM fields, but your high school can’t design a four-year curriculum based entirely on life choices you haven’t made yet. Most people are expected to get a college degree. I think the American obsession with the B.A. is problematic on a bunch of levels, but that doesn’t mean a high school should ignore it. Recently, in upstate New York, there were valedictorians in public high schools who wanted to get degrees in New York’s state university system, and couldn’t gain admission to any of them, because their high schools hadn’t given them enough of an academic background. That their schools didn’t give them enough education to move forward with is an outrage.
The point of high school is to give you enough of a background in everything that you can proceed in anything. Now, I’ll freely admit that a lot of high schools don’t do this very well - they’re often underfunded (as was the case with those schools in New York), or poorly run. But, if your school is actually succeeding in teaching you higher math, and specific science, and comprehensive history, and English critical thinking, you can choose to use any of that knowledge, any of those skills, to go forward and specialize however you want.
And, if you choose not to use any of it, that’s fine too, but I guarantee that the knowledge won’t hurt you. Knowing things is cool, even if the things aren’t directly relevant to what you’re doing at any given moment - this xkcd sums it up elegantly.
I’m not a scientist or mathematician myself, but I’d hate to have spent four years in high school and only have learned things I can look up on government websites and summarize in a paragraph.
virgothepoet replied to your post: What would your ideal girl be like?
What’s funny is…I think as you get more experience in relationships you start to realize that having things in common doesn’t actually create a good relationship. That having “meshing personalities” actually creates a better foundation. Usually!
This is understandable. I suppose I always look for girls who have loads in common with me because I am completely shit at starting conversation. Therefore having something in common with eachother is a massive help. I have always lacked confidence when it comes to approaching people.
Also, It's not my job to dictate what people like/don't like or what people believe. I believe in CLARITY. In knowing the facts before judging other people without knowing everything. I will never apologize for that. I'm not even close to butthurt. Yeah, my white girl life means I can't listen, think, read, or form an intelligent opinion of my own. It's prejudice for you to assume because I'm white, that I have no cultural aesthetic to my life. Whats funny is that I didn't even disagree with you
Ok Bitch. I really don’t have any time for this.
I have received over 60 FUCKING MESSAGES ABOUT THE SAME SHIT IN ONE DAY ALL BECAUSE I REFUSE TO TURN A BLIND EYE TO WHITEWASHING.
Have you ever recieved 60+ messages saying the same things over and over and over?????????
White people will go any lengths to put other white people in a better light. Even if it means harassing a woman of color for 24+ hours straight to force their opinions down her throat.
Take your white supremacy elsewhere because it isn’t, never has been or will be welcome here.
Do you see my ask box title? It’s from a woman of color who had just cut the head off a man for trying to start shit with her. It is not there to be a welcome mat, but to ward off ignorant pasty people like you.
What I think maybe the anon was trying to say if I understood right is that, never to downplay the whitewashing, but from the actors view point is that he'd already accepted and started preparing for the role before he knew it was Khan. I don't for a second doubt there is a suitable Indian actor for that role. But to blame Ben for accepting the role (as people are calling him a racist) is uncalled for as well. He didn't know he was Khan until after he signed the contract.
He is partially to blame, yes. But fucking stop acting like I’m declaring war on the guy.
And stop sending me the same fucking messages saying the same shit like I’m going to change my fucking mind on the matter just because some Birthcontrol Crumblysnack fans are butthurt that their “favorite” actor did something stupid.
I don’t see how that’s my problem or why you’re coming at me like you’ve found the cure for cancer.
You white people need to find a new hobby. :/

yours explains why you have anger issues and mine why im legitimately obsessed with horror movies! lol. a few yrs ago i was in an accident and i spent 7 days in the hospital drugged on morphine watching a Man Vs. Wild marathon. I was losing my shit
mothers, gosh what are they like? :’) haha omg bear grylls would make anyone loose their shit
I LOVE WISCONSIN. its beautiful. believe it or not its great. Ive been there LOADS of times. Great cheese. Culvers has good food and their frozen custard is better than ice cream. The Wisconsin Dells are fun. Good beer. Cold in the winter tho!
Awesome! My grandparents live in Wisconsin so I’ve visited during the summers and I’ve found that I can handle the heat pretty well but I’ve never experienced the cold. Ireland is always just mild rain year round. And I have tasted the cheese and Culver’s custard and I’ve been to the Dells, so I’m looking forward to that.
Oh my God, but I just realized that a couple months ago when I turned eighteen I became legal to drink but now I’m not anymoRE NOOOOOOOoOooooh well I’m not too broken up about it

Yeah its from Kansas City. But they should sell it everywhere….I think? It’s amazing. It’s an unfiltered beer. It’s AMAZING. Just light but flavorful. But I love unfiltered beer. Usually people who love Blue Moon like Boulevard.
i’ll have to look for it then, i love blue moon.
virgothepoet said: then turn off anon. I mean, I used to get a ton of anon hate but life is better since I turned it off. It IS pointless. If you don’t like anon hate just don’t let people be anon. Only pussies need anon.
i did turn it off for the summer & last year after things were really bad, but after i figured out who did it and called them out on it, i haven’t got a single one.
