I’ve never considered having a penpal until the ripe old age of 30! Haha. That aside, I’m a rare breed, not only do I have this knowledge but I’ve been told from many reliable sources. 😛 I’m single, have no children, and live the lifestyle of a bachelor, a lesbian bachelor lol. Really, though, I have led a pretty interesting roller coaster journey of life so far. I’ve traveled all over North America, but I’ve never gone overseas. That’s definitely on the bucket list. I’m very passionate about life and living like there’s no tomorrow, but I’ve been one to take the gift for granted as well. I want to have a penpal at this conjecture in life because I want to share my story. And I don’t want my story to be over just yet, so no, I won’t just write a book. I wanna hear your story, too. We all have something to offer one another if we just take the time to do it. ☺

Preferences: 21 and over only please.

I don’t understand this tendency to bitch about millennials being selfish.

The media and public opinion keep screaming about selfies and PC culture but the actual data simply does not line up with the picture they’re trying to sell. I think it’s also very telling that ppl keep citing things like “a brave new world” and “Clockwork Orange” without stopping to think about the fact that after 90 years ppl over the age of 40 continue to write the same complaints about ppl under the age of 30. It’s almost like humans haven’t actually changed at all.

Statistically speaking almost 84% of millennials give money to causes that they care about. 70% of Millennials have reported volunteering with at least a third of them volunteering more than 11 hours. SO this lack of donating through churches and companies that is repeatedly cited to call us greedy and entitled doesn’t mean that millennials aren’t donating time and money to causes it simply means that they’re adjudicating their (very limited) funds differently.

And this is something that simply happens when society dictates college is now compulsory and about 20 times more expensive than it was in the 70s. If you start out your life with 100 thousand dollars in debt to work in unpaid internships and part time, minimum wage jobs, you don’t have a lot of bread to spread around.

Millennials have set up hugely successful crowdfunding campaigns for anything from helping some random person on the internet pay their bills to straight up paying for the medical bills of the terminally ill. Shit once I saw a crowdfund for someone’s vet bills get filled in less than 24 hours with more than ten thousand backers.

Millennials are more likely to be politically active. They’re more likely to care about the fates of minorities and marginalized populations than previous generations did at the same age. You call it PC culture, we call it not being a fucking asshole. We’re more likely to support social programs. I think the real problem is that millennials tend to be counter culture and anti-capitalist because capitalism is a system that has, evidently, very much failed us. We’re more likely to fund new, innovative technology, than sit by and accept the status quo of previous generations and that confuses these 60 year old reporters who won’t just fucking retire already. So instead of making an actual effort to talk to people and do research we just get these wildly conflated articles about how millennials are killing industries and selfies are doing bad shit and the infamous fucking complaint about the god damn participation trophies.

Listen.
No one was fooled by the fucking participation trophies. You just gave me a ribbon to commemorate that time that I didn’t accomplish anything. Don’t start resenting me for dumb, pointless shit YOU decided to do while I was a toddler.

Unless you can give me one, good, positive reason it should be socially acceptable to call ppl n*ggers, queers, whores or faggots you can shut the fuck up forever about political correctness. (That has nothing to do with freedom of speech, because deeming something impolite is NOT denying someone freedom of speech.) Unless you support welfare, medicaid, homeless prevention programs and planned parenthood you can shut the fuck up forever about how much you care about the “sanctity of life”. Unless you can hear “your coupon doesn’t apply to this purchase” without blowing a motherfucking gasket or wasting 40 minutes of everyone’s time arguing why this coupon should be accepted, then you can shut your mouth about how disrespectful society is.

Because, frankly, as a service worker I’ve never encountered anything more whiny, selfish and entitled than a white woman over the age of 40 with a bunch of coupons.

I like to think that Efi is a big fan of Lucio and also looks up to him as a role model since he’s not just an international music icon but also a freedom fighter that literally led an uprising to free his city. All before the age of 30.

Trump’s approval rating hits new low, according to a new Gallup poll

  • Just two months into his first term, only 37% of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance, according to a Gallup poll released Sunday. 
  • His disapproval rating, meanwhile, hovers around 58%.
  • The numbers are a stark contrast to the approval rating of his predecessor, Barack Obama, who at the same point in 2009 had a 61% approval rating according to the same poll. Read more (3/20/17 8 AM)

Following a zombie outbreak, humanity has been preserved in select cities across the globe. Technology has been preserved, with cellular networks and fully functional internet. To keep humanity alive, volunteers between the ages of 16 and 30 travel out of the cities to scavenge.

anonymous asked:

Is it true that there's a new military policy meaning the Korean members can be enlisted at any time now?

Yes:

“Celebrities will no longer be able to delay enlistment in the military. They’ll serve whenever called. That means any random time after age 18. Right now celebrities usually delay enlistment till age 30. Korean Military Manpower Administration now asking companies for information on all male artists born between Jan 1, 1980 and Dec 31, 1999. The change is in response to public demands for equality with regard to army enlistment and service. Some online reactions mention that there are sons of politicians/businessmen who delay enlistment too and that should change as well.”

I’m curious how Korean companies are going to handle this because letting Korean members of their groups enlist early puts them in a tough situation. Groups last 5-7 years (at least until their contracts end) so companies are trying to promote them during first few years as much as it’s possible. 

Recently NCT Ten who’s Thai went to Thailand to register because just like Bambam mentioned at one of the recent fansign events they might have to enlist. If you volunteer you serve for 6 months. If you don’t, you take part in lottery. If you get picked you have to serve for 2 years.

Astrology Milestones

Age 12 - First Jupiter Return: The ancients celebrated puberty because the biological God and Goddess of creation had been awakened and it was a sacred time in one’s life. This was recognised with jubilance and honour. Jupiter rules hormones and cultural conditioning. In modern times we shame and denigrate the phase, remarking on hormonal changes that inconvenience society, and yet we wonder why teenagers self destruct, rebel, and turn to substance. This changing biology transforms the lower body and activates the spirit, and yet we are not prepared or nurtured for this powerful change. 

Age 14 - Jupiter opposes Saturn: The resistance to authority and conditioning is activated here, along with self consciousness and the lure into danger. This is the moment a young person can typically choose between ‘indulgence, laziness, and self pleasure’ (Jupiter) in leaving school or ‘responsibility, expectation, and conforming to authority’ (Saturn) in remaining in school or focusing on the future. The karmic lesson is revealed around this period. We face intimidating figures of authority, often threatening with ‘what until you’re in the real world’ shaking confidence even more 

Age 21 - Uranus squares natal Uranus: 21 is the age globally recognised as completed transition into adulthood. This period indicates self expression and experimentation, a time for tattoos and lilac hair and inspiration. It’s a favourable time for sparking people’s interest in astrology. Political activity, protest, and rebellion can begin around here. Cosmically, this is a time where people learn a lot about themselves and generate good self awareness, they start to feel wholly in their body, or as if fogginess has dissolved 

Age 28-30 - First Saturn Return: Everything you have built until this point is under threat. Saturn writes his first report card, and it will rely on how intimate and satisfactory you have been in facilitating Saturn’s condition in the natal chart. This is the biggest overhaul we experience on a physical/mental level, when the anchor of the chart completes transit and writes a new criteria. We are given 29 years because the reading material and substance is so profound. Harsh reality hits with shattering force. It’s time to become an adult.
