"Do you want to go job hunting?"

shitmycallerssay:

As a third shifter, I often wonder why these hoodlums are awake in the middle of the night to even be creating all this drama. And then I remember- they’re hoodlums. Fueled by boredom and written in about ten minutes, I give you:

Can we please just tell every middle schooler this instead of making them feel embarrassed by their existence and their need to try new things? It would be much nicer to hear this through middle school and high school than it is to hear about how dumb your phase or whatever is and how much you’ll regret it in a year.

Damn, every time I see this go by my dash, it has, like, 10K more notes.  I’m awed by how much it seems to have meant to so many people, and incredibly moved to see so many notes saying that this has mattered.

oh my fucking god its 3am and im emotional

I wish somebody told me this.

Damn, where was this when I was 14?!

i think it’s weird that companies price things for how difficult they are to make (not the materials they use, but for the difficulty of building the object). the consumer, i would think, doesn’t usually look at their BJD’s clothes and go “WOWZA that was hard to make!” but more of a “WOWZA the final product is beautiful!”. i mean, the doll company can do whatever they want, i’m not the boss around here. it’s just weird to me.

Time is money, friend.

Here is the start of my attempt to knit a Scottish Bonnet, using a pattern from the 17th century found at ScotWars.com. The helpful kitten is Kain. She loves to curl up in my lap while I’m knitting, and fall asleep after playing keep away with the yarn.
I’m fairly new to knitting (started teaching myself early this year) and this is my first attempt at felting. Until now, I have only worked with acrylic yarn since it was softer and cheaper than the wool options at Jo-Annes. I went to The Yarn Mart, a local specialty yarn store to get some good wool for this project.
I’ve had some bad luck right off the bat. I knitted my test swatch, counted my stitches, put markers on it for 16 stitches, because in the pattern 16 stitches once felted down, turns into about 1 inch. So I want to see how close I can get to the inch measurement. Tossed it in the washing machine about 2am in a zippered pillow case, on hot, and checked it at the end of the cycle. No change. And it was cold. Turns out that at some point yesterday, the hot water heater went out. So now I have to wait for maintenance to come replace the hot water heater today at some point (its about 4:30 am now), assuming they have a spare one and dont have to order one.. I work nights, and sleep days, so this is going to suck.
Hopefully this test swatch still felts up ok after going through a cold water cycle. It should be fine, right? It’s my first time, so I really don’t know. Guess I’ll find out today or tomorrow.
My project will be updated on Ravelry as I work.

this is it. this is the most important gif on tumblr.com

no okay but let me tell you a story
so at school I’m generally a pretty quiet person. I talk to a few people, I have a few friends, but I keep to myself a lot. So anyway, during lunch I’m on tumblr mobile, and this thing comes up. I put the gif onto full screen, and kind of half laugh at it. Then this guy who I have literally never talked to before walks by and then slowly back up and starts looking at my phone screen. I try to explain what I’m looking at, but really, how the hell do you explain this? Anyway, he waves over one of his friends so his friend comes over and looks at it. I’m still sitting in my chair, and we are all still completely silent. Soon more people begin to gather. 12 people, to be exact. 12 people, many of which I have never spoken to before, standing in a large, silent, ritual-esque circle around my iphone which is playing this gif on loop. After about five minutes, the first guy goes “how long is this?” and I was like “uh, its, um, its a gif, so it kind of goes on forever.” he nods and says “perfect”. These were the only words spoken throughout this whole event.

I feel like there is glue inside my brain. I just feel stiff and slow, mentally.

My head is killing me

Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.

When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.

The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…

But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.
