Reading the internet is really depressing and scary lately.
A three-day-old human embryo is a collection of 150 cells called a blastocyst....– Sam Harris, on stem cell research (via loveyourchaos ) While certainly a compelling argument, I’m pretty sure it’s a relatively unnecessary conversation. There are stem cells in fat cells… Or something like that. My vet clinic has been taking an animal’s own fat cells, swirling them around in this...
You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.– Song of Solomon, Toni Morrison (via fuckyeahliteraryquotes) I’ve also been thinking this, in similar words. (via aproductionblog) This is one of my favorite “classic” books. (via ptube) This is why I worry about going to law school, and ending up with so much debt in student loans that I get...
Watching Revolutionary Road.
It’s making me want to make sure I don’t end up that way. So far, I’ve been pretty good at not following conventional storylines for my life, I think. Also, the sex in this movie seems really unsatisfactory.
I think I'm in love but it makes me kind of...
I’ve gotten to: “I like you more than I like breakfast tacos.” I was bumming around on the internet tonight and I came across this piece I bookmarked long ago about vulnerability. It’s also about feminism, quite a bit, but the vulnerability part is relevant to pretty much everything, I think. And I feel like I’m pretty much rolling over and exposing my throat at...
The New Zodiac
My new sign is the chili. fakescience:
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of...– Rosemary Urquico (via kblitz:bellegaijin)
What do you say . . .
When you’re too afraid to say what you mean? Me, I bite my tongue. I hold him and say “It’s okay.” It isn’t fair that there is only one word for love in our language, when others have so many different words that capture nuances of meaning. It isn’t fair that the word is then so easy to say to your close friends, and family members that you barely know, but...
Between my mother coming to town and my work schedule, Dave and I are having trouble figuring out when to time shift our annual Valentine’s Day movie watching date (for those who don’t know, we’ve watched violent action movies with as many explosions and as little romance as possible together, and sometimes with other people, for the last 5 years, even when living thousands of...
Why Are Giraffes So Tall?
whatkindofgirl: Just had the-patron-who-makes-up-for-the-rest-of-them. A sweet lady who was looking for three very different books, so we had a nice chat while meandering the stacks to collect them all. Plus, she liked my dress, which she said makes me look like ‘the goddess of spring’—wishful thinking, no doubt brought on by our unseasonably cold spell. Jeez weather, don’t you know the...
I have never contacted my congressman before
But HR3 makes me so upset I have to take deep breaths and think of other things to calm down, and it turns out the congressman representing my district is a co-sponsor (okay, sure, I live in Texas, but the COOL part of Texas, so that’s super messed up). I think I’m going to call him tomorrow.
UT app done
My life has been insane the last couple of weeks, often in bad and stressful ways that I haven’t really wanted to discuss. At this point, everything either has or is going to turn out just fine, I’m sure. It’s nothing to worry about. And as soon as I get this law school app in, yet another immense load will be off my chest and I can focus on other stuff like locking down full...
