Always hard to decide: do I get a good nights sleep or continue messaging that one cute person and stay up way too late.

Sleep wins this time.

Katie is driving to work one beautiful day when a dead man jumps into her car and tries to eat her. That same morning, Jenni opens a bedroom door to find her husband devouring their toddler son.

Fate puts Jenni and Katie—total strangers—together in a pickup, fleeing the suddenly…

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

The thing about an anxiety disorder is that you know it is stupid. You know with all your heart that it wasn’t a big deal and that it should roll off of you. But that is where the disorder kicks in; Suddenly the small thing is very big and it keeps growing in your head, flooding your chest, and trying to escape from under your skin. You know with all of your heart that you’re being ridiculous and you hate every minute of it.

Want to attend college for free? It can happen if you learn German.

All German universities are now free to Americans and all other international students. The last German state to charge tuition at its universities struck down the fees this week.

Even before Germany abolished college tuition for all students, the price was a steal. Typically semester fees were around $630. What’s more, German students receive many perks including discounts for food, clothing and events, as well as inexpensive or even free transportation.

In explaining why Germany made this move, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a Hamburg senator, called tuition fees “unjust” and added that “they discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Actually, German universities were free up until 2006 when they started charging tuition. That triggered such a crush of criticism that German states began phasing out this policy. Lower Saxony was the last holdout.

It’s too bad that politicians in the U.S. don’t feel that a college education is worth supporting appropriately. State aid to the nation’s public universities took a nosedive during the 2008 recession and education funding remains well below those levels. The average state is spending 23 percent less per student than before the recession, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Actually, state support has been declining for public universities for a quarter of a century. Using an interactive tool from The Chronicle of Higher Education, you can see how state government subsidies have cratered at individual institutions.

With the average undergrad borrower now leaving school with more than $29,000 in debt, the free ride in Germany can look awfully tempting.

How to handle the language barrier

German is not an easy language to learn. Fortunately, however, there are international language programs in Germany, which have become very popular with international students before they tackle obtaining a degree in a different language.

What’s more, an increasing number of German universities are offering degrees in English. These are often called international studies programs or in some other way have the word international in their title.

This is actually making me cry…it’s one of those times when you realize that your own government just truly, honestly, does not give a shit about your wellbeing in any way.

why the fuck would straight ally’s get scholarships meant for LGBTQ students

oh geez I hope this is a typo

My school’s lgbt resource center talks about serving the “ally community” and it always skeeves me the hell out. :/

wait… why would there be scholarships specifically for LGBTQ students? Please don’t get angry or anything, genuinely just wondering, I’m not informed about these kinds of things… sorry. I read online LGBTQ groups offer them? But how does it work? How do you apply? Why is it there? And why would it be wrong to provide them for students who actively participate in promoting equal rights who are straight?

So the most important reason to provide these scholarships, in my opinion, is the fact that a lot of LGBTQA kids lose the support -emotional and financial -of their parents when they come out, making it even more important that they get financial help to attend school.  This isn’t the case for ALL queer youth (not for me, for example, and I’m supremely grateful) but for many.  It’s not necessarily about doing activist work; for many kids, it’s about queer-related financial NEED.There are also LGBTQA groups who, in remembrance of the struggles their members went through in the past, simply want to give a little something to help a new generation of queer kids get educated.LGBTQA scholarships should be specifically for queer students. There are plenty of other scholarships out there that specifically reward activism and community leadership, and I believe that allies who actively work to help the LGBTQA community absolutely deserve those scholarships, but giving straight allies LGBTQA scholarships is upsetting. Being good to queer people is great, but it’s also, y’know, basic human decency and shouldn’t be rewarded with money that could actually help LGBTQA kids who need it.

Part I

NOW THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT

oh would you fucking look at that

WOMEN IN BATTLE GEAR/ARMOR THAT IS NOT DRIPPING WITH FROTHY-SLICK CURDS OF SEXISM

goddes and men saide it was notte to bee

but they would notte listen

…and she-I in the mirror says
“remember, it will kill us”
And she is club-made-up still,
bright eyed and wet in the hollows just
above her cheekbones and I
plunge us both beneath the tap,
til there is no way of knowing what is salt
and what is stream,
and press a pill to my tongue and
try-oh-try to leave her in the mirror.

raptorific:

I threw a wish in the well,
Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell
I looked to you as it fell,
And now you’re in my way

I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
I gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all

I’d trade my soul for a wish,
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss

My face.  I don’t really know what to do and our comp lab is closed, so I’m ignoring everything, reading Cloud Atlas, and making plans to get drunkies.

i like crossovers but i really like the idea of dc and marvel being fictional in eachothers worlds like the teen titans are gonna go see the avengers at the movies tomorrow on their day out and then beast boys gonna do his best hulk impression all day…

Deadpool has jokingly called people “Batman” at least once…and honestly I can see him crouching on rooftops and gargoyles, doing his best Dark Knight impersonation.
