Anonymous said: So, my gov teacher was at Kenyon the same time you were. Apparently, he only really knew who you were because one of his friends there looked just like you. Also, he says his only memory of you was seeing you on the street one day wearing a t-shirt with the word "hungover" written in marker and an arrow pointing to your face.

fishingboatproceeds:

Oh God I had forgotten all about that shirt.

Thanks, anon.

My new favorite thing.

I started law school this week

capturethecastle:

Today in my legal writing class the professor made us all actually introduce ourselves and share an interesting fact.

And this blonde white girl’s like "My interesing fact is that I was on the board of the Black Student Association at Yale even though I’m not the least bit African American."

Look at your life. Look at your choices.

"

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.

Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.

regardless of whether or not mike brown robbed a store, the chief of police in ferguson states the policeman who murdered him had no knowledge of the incident, making the crime itself and his death unrelated.

New still of Chris Pratt in Jurassic World (2015)

i’m a heterosexual man and i’m screaming

Oh my christ

Is he slowly morphing into a more attractive man with each movie until we all just wet ourselves and learn to worship him because oh my fucking god

He looks like Indiana-Jones-era Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling had an attractive man-baby and I am all about it. 
There’s no morphing going on here. This man is attractive when he’s pale and chubby, and he’s attractive when he’s tan and chiseled. He will rule the world and there’s nothing any of us can do about it.

professors seeing “teddy lupin” on their rosters and being like “ah yes, remus lupin’s son. remus was such a well behaved student, i’m sure his son will be the same”

and then teddy shows up for class and they’re like “oh no….oh no”

Can we discuss how really, really cool it is that Olivia Wilde is breastfeeding her son for Glamour magazine?
Can we establish that it’s really amazing that it will be showcasing female breasts for their intended purpose and showcases her as a mother, just doing mother things?
Can I say that I find this unbelievably cool and I’m really glad it’s a thing that’s happening?
Even if I can’t, I’m gonna. Because it is and I’m really glad it’s happening.

This is so great
