The Latest

If you want to know why millennials are far more economically liberal than other generations, consider the news that colleges have started opening on-campus food banks to keep their students from going hungry.

Starving College Students and the Shredded Social Contract (via azspot)

The college I work for has two food banks one on each campus.

I was talking to my mom about starting salaries for kids out of college, and she said when she got her first job in 1976, her starting salary was $10,000 a year. I checked an inflation calculator - that’s more than $41k/year in 2014 dollars. College students are broker than ever before, and recent grads are lucky to crack the poverty line in their first year out of school. It’s going to be really interesting in the next half century to see how this generation reacts to starting off in life so far behind.

No okay but this, this is what baffles me. I mean ship what you ship okay, that’s fine. But do not tell me that you think that a man spying on a woman with a telescope is romantic.
Watching someone from across a room - yep I can see that. Sending a longing look back through a window as you leave, yep I get that too. Watching someone from across the street, whilst they’re having dinner with their family, with a goddamn telescope. No. That is not romantic. That is commonly known as stalking. It isn’t sweet and it certainly isn’t goddamn healthy.
It genuinely concerns me that people voted for that as their favourite scene of the whole episode. I mean, if you’re a CSer I’d say there were a good few scenes that could be your fave - they had a lot of good shippable interaction. So why, why would that be your favourite? I don’t care who you are or what you ship - saying that kind of interaction is healthy and romantic in a relationship is not okay.

Give me all the happy Charming-Swan-Miller family fluff fics.

That dinner at Granny’s was so perfect and I want a million more fics of everyone being happy and arguing about Henry getting spoiled rotten.
I love it. They’ve earned it.

I was so bitter about the love triangle in OUAT I stopped watching until last week

madame-solace:

My otp is Swan Queen and I hated how they completely cockblocked my Regina.
Anyways at some point I found out about the latest plot developments got caught up and I’m more tolerant of Killian now that Emma is super cautious again. But I’m also really worried that Mulan doesn’t seem to be returning anytime soon :/

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.

Although I much prefer the original Swedish title of Fucking Åmål to Show Me Love as I find it much more appropriate to the story line. It catches me out whenever I see the English title because I’ve only ever watched the film on Swedish-sold dvd. The film was distributed under a few different titles in various countries who had issues with fuck in a title though.

" Let’s not forget, she started out her career as essentially a mercenary so I don’t know if that makes her role model material. But I will say that one of the things that’s very attractive to me about Natasha is that she uses her feminine wiles as part of her job, but she doesn’t rely on her sexuality or physical appeal to get the job done.

"She’s extremely smart. She thinks on her feet. She’s a leader and she has a lot of foresight. Those are all qualities that I think it’s wonderful to celebrate for young women."

I would argue that seeing her deal with the moral implications of her work in Cap 2 make Black Widow an excellent role model for finding out your actions has shitty repercussions and owning up to it. Vowing to change for the better is beautiful.
