sometimes i think that i am not so stereotypical of an american
and then i remember that i consider the coke freestyle machine one of the greatest modern inventions
i mean look at this thing
over 100 choices, computerized mixing, one spout, touch screen, ice dispenser
have u ever seen anything so wondrous and beautiful??
OP has obviously never experienced the utter frustration of one of these machines when it is low on syrup. Every drink you press gives you about 2 oz of soda and then it either stops or just starts spewing carbonated water, then requiring you to dump that drink and attempt to pick another. Gah. After a few tries, it feels like the russian roulette of soda pop.
This. It honestly bothers me when someone immediately thinks I have to cook for the reason of me being a girl. Why can’t the reason be that we take turns and whatnot. Why does it have to be because I’m a girl?
"Working together, these five factions have lived in peace for many years, each contributing to a different sector of society. Abnegation has fulfilled our need for selfless leaders in government; Candor has provided us with trustworthy and sound leaders in law; Erudite has supplied us with intelligent teachers and researchers; Amity has given us understanding counselors and caretakers; and Dauntless provides us with protection from threats both within and without. But the reach of each faction is not limited to these areas. We give one another far more than can be adequately summarized. In our factions, we find meaning, we find purpose, we find life."
I have no home, no path, no certainty. I am no longer Tris, the selfless, or Tris, the brave. I suppose that now, I must become more than either.
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
Sometimes I get huffy about tumblr but then I see that 260,000 people got the same kind of chills I did reading this…
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad f**k” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
Sorry to anyone that I haven’t responded to in the past couple days! I’ve been really sick again, but it seems to be clearing up now. Cheers to health!
Almost two years ago, I wrote an article entitled “The Sour Taste of Technological Advance” and, more than anything else, it was a written exploration of the little ways in which technology has negatively affected society and human interaction. It was about awareness and consideration of current circumstances; however, it was not an outright rejection of technology.
This article is the flip side…
