we are young and stupid and raised by wolves

(this is not real life. these are not pictures of me. I am 20-something years old and a woman and passionate about politics and fanfiction and, as far as you are concerned, I only exist online.)

Yuri Gagarin right after the flight

Worth a reblog..

I just had to look up on Wikipedia who he was, because my American (private) grade school curriculum AGGRESSIVELY ignored him. I was taught that John Glenn was the first AMERICAN to orbit Earth, now let’s learn about Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong!

I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

Fucking this. 

Fucking thank you. 

INTERNET FRIENDS ARE REAL FRIENDS.

Hi sam i wish to be a god-empress of some kind but all i'm qualified for is starting a bi-weekly cult in my living room

copperbadge:

Sometimes you have to start small! Don’t be ashamed of a living room cult, some great empires have started in living rooms. The Holy Roman Empire began in a barn, for Christ’s sake. Just make sure you have a catchy logo and a simple tagline and keep your holy book short so that people can reprint copies easily. (I’d look into self-publishing if I were you.)

Also picking an animal symbol helps. Snakes used to be super vogue but these days I think it’s mostly birds, sometimes big cats. Go with what feels right, or check with some local design companies.

never set your wake up alarm to a song you like. you’ll lay there, all enjoying it. fall back asleep. and forget to pick up your kids.

or you’ll end up hating the song for associating it to the trauma of waking up

this has happened to me so many times, you think I’d learn
