I like how the original title for The Fault in Our Stars is all poetic and then the Norwegians just translated it to “fuck destiny” and I think that’s beautiful
Aw man, I thought for sure this had to be bullshit but nope
Why is it always Norway
Norway, a nation where you can put the word “fuck” on the cover of a young adult novel.
"In America". Where I come from (and a lot of other countries), in 2014, a student can study at a public university for free. Period. No catch. No loan. No debt.
Also, Norway is one of the countries where foreign students can attend FREE university without paying a cent of tuition money. (Source)
For those who don’t know, positronicwoman is one of the kindest, most generous, and supportive women I have ever known. She has helped me through so much in the years I’ve known her, and has grown to become one of my closest friends even though I’ve never had the good fortune to meet her in-person.
She has helped me realise who I am, helped pull me out of the deepest pits of depression I’ve gone through, and has even sent gifts to show how much of a friend she is and how she’s always there for me no matter what. And I know for a fact that she has helped, supported, loved, and cared for many others, also introducing us all together and inadvertently creating an incredibly tight-knit community of close friends.
Right now she is suffering through incredibly tough times. She has had to run away across the United States, from Michigan to Seattle, to escape her father, but after a year of stable living she is now facing homelessness or moving in with a person known to be abusive, who was the only person able to offer her a room. What she needs right now is a place to stay, with other transgender/queer femme people in the area that she can feel safe with. That doesn’t mean money won’t help though.
I am asking all of my followers and any of your own who reblog this, please help. Please at least share this if you can’t contribute yourself. I’ve set up this page myself, with the goal only being a soft cap and more of a general idea of what might be able to support her for some time. So even five dollars will mean a lot.
Please help a young trans woman survive in this day and age.
She means so much to so many people and the world wouldn’t be the same without her.
THE FACT THAT THE AMERICAN PEDIATRIC SOCIETY TOLD AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEMS THAT TEENS SHOULD NOT BE UP BEFORE 8:30 AND ONLY 15% OF SCHOOLS LISTENED ANGERS ME SO MUCH
Sugar Skulls are not for you, Bindi are not for you, Rastafarianism is not for you, Yoga really isn’t for you either.
Unless you are specifically invited or become part of a religious community- It is not for your use, decoration,…

It’s funnier everytime I see it.
I like human beings.
At Stanford there was this Professor who was a total bitch and she taught British Literature, which was cool. Except she taught only her opinions of the books and it didn’t help me as a writer. I went to school to learn new things to improve my craft, not have someone else’s opinions carved onto my forehead.
So anyway, for our final project, she asked us to write a ten page paper on why the color symbolism in Othello was so significant. I did some research and it turned out that she did her entire graduate thesis on this very subject. I was mad. This wasn’t teaching, this was boosting her ego. SO I wrote a ten page essay on why color symbolism in Othello wasn’t significant, satirizing it to the point of no return, saying that her opinion was an opinion and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
SHe failed me, needless to say. So in retaliation, I responded by baking a batch of brownies laced with weed and laxatives and delivered them myself to the professor hours before her big graduation speech. I told her that it was a peace offering, my way of apologizing and asking if I could do anything to fix my grade.
She refused to fix my grade.
In the end, she shit herself on stage.
I didn’t regret it.
what the fuck is going on
