The Adulting School in Portland, ME, has workshops that teach millennials how to do grown-up things. Courses cover subjects like cooking, money tips, time management, and networking. The idea was inspired by the growing number of #adulting social media posts, where people share moments when they either behaved like an adult, or failed trying. Source Source 2

hey bucky im currently leaving an abusive relationship and im feeling a little guilty and alone and down. got any advice?

1. good for you. leave that bastard. preferably, leave them somewhere unpleasant

2. you deserve better. go easy on yourself. get yourself some nice hot chocolate and give yourself time. recovery isnt easy or linear but it is possible, and you can do it if i can. think of how you sympathetic you would be if it was your best friend in your situation, and treat yourself like you would treat them. 

3. youre not alone, or at least, you dont have to be. there are probably people in your life who are really glad to see you out of that situation, and would love to be able to offer some help or support. reconnect with those people, or go out and start looking for people to make friends with. its a lot to deal with on your own, but the good news is that you dont have to. and theres all kinds of support groups these days. i, for example, have joined a support group for brainwashed assassins. so far its just me and nat and clint. we’re hoping we never get more members.

  • them: how could mental hospitals possibly keep things confidential for their patients without taking away their phones as though they're children?
  • me: ... idk if you know this but theres this cool thing you can do where ... you give your adult patients... papers to sign that say ... theyre going to keep things confidential... and not take photos of other patients.... because they're adults... and u can ask them things like that.

Scottie Hughes, a Trump surrogate, defending Trump’s claim that “Three million people voted illegally,” which again has NO basis in fact:

“And so Mr. Trump’s tweet, amongst a certain crowd—a large part of the population—are truth. When he says that millions of people illegally voted, he has some—amongst him and his supporters, and people believe they have facts to back that up. Those that do not like Mr. Trump, they say that those are lies and that there are no facts to back it up.” (x)

Let me make this clear. This is a baseless claim. White nationalist media and Alex Jones were saying “three million illegal votes,” since the day after the election, before it’s even possible to have the data btw, and Trump ran with it. It’s not calling the presented facts lies because there literally are no facts in this claim.  

And honestly I think it’s pretty clear where their intentions lie. We know from the uncovered “Strategic Plan for the First 365 Days” that Trump’s plans are to go after voting rights. He’s already expressed interest in expanding voter ID laws, which already disenfranchise millions of voters. Plus, republicans have consistently had their federal efforts to make voting harder blocked but now they have the upper hand. (Efforts that, btw, asked for a birth certificate or passport before voting, or blocking out absentee ballots, or enacting the modern-day equivalent to literacy tests.) This baseless claim lays pretext to attack voter rights tacked on with the support of millions of Americans who believe the outright lies this piece of shit is spewing.

Ontario lawyers agree to tackle systemic racism in the profession
“Overt discrimination and bias are a feature of daily life,” the group found. “Racialization is a constant and persistent factor.”

Larger law firms would be expected to work toward racial diversification and have to report out on their progress under recommendations approved without opposition Friday by the profession’s regulatory body in Ontario following hours of emotional debate.

In addition, the Law Society of Upper Canada will look to put measures in place to ensure legal workplaces do more to combat systemic racism and discrimination in their ranks, its governing body decided.

The recommendations — 13 in all — flowed from a working group that looked at the career obstacles black and other visible minority lawyers face. The group, set up in 2012, spent the last few years coming up with its report based on consultations and submissions from around the province.

Raj Anand, co-chairman of the group, who said he’s been the subject of racial slurs, called it gratifying the law society approved the report.

“There is a serious problem that needs to be addressed,” Anand said.

“We now can move forward to implement these important recommendations, which reinforce the special responsibility of lawyers and paralegals to promote human rights in their own workplaces — and in their relationships with the justice system and the public.”

I love Milos confidence.

I mean, look at that attitude in Rooting for the Enemy. He just got right up there with those cheerleaders, like ‘I got this, rooting for the Enemy, I’m gonna fuck you guys up’.

And in smooth opera-ator he got on stage at a professional opera performance and started SINGING like it was NOTHING. and he didn’t even hesitate.

I just love this kid, he inspires me to be a cooler person.

Beliefs are Important

because those are what shape your reality.

“A belief is just something you keep thinking”
-Abraham Hicks

If you believe life can be easy and fun and happy and full of things that help expand… that’s what life will be.
But if you believe that life, in order to be happy, and fun, and joyous, needs to be difficult and you have to work hard to get what you want… that’s what life will be.

All you are is consciousness expressing itself and learning and recognizing itself through your experiences. You aren’t a teacher, or a wife, or a husband, or even a HUMAN… you ARE the universe, you ARE consciousness. And life CAN be as easy as you want. If you believe it can be, that’s the key here.

So when you feel bad, dig deep into WHY- what is the underlying belief here, just acknowledging it will help you move past it. I know I can struggle with time, and feeling like I am lacking enough time to do what I need- so when that constriction wells up I know its time to affirm to myself that I am timeless, I will always exist and I will always have enough time to do what needs to get done (just as an example).

You can change beliefs, they shape your world so you might as well change beliefs that don’t serve you well. It takes time, it takes some effort, but it’s a great way to start really attracting what you want.
