GUESS WHO FINALLY SAW THE HOBBIT
why is it always the weird stuff that gets reblogged
Looks like there is a word for it.
I think I missed out on the “neat and cute handwriting” gene that every girl seems to have and this is unfair
Intelligent people have messier handwriting because they think fast. When you think and process things faster, you can also write quicker, but it’s going to be sloppy.
if ur hair covers ur boobs u have mermaid hair and u are a mermaid i dont make the rules
As a man with a hairy chest, I was very, very confused by this post for about ten seconds.
You are a mermaid, sir
"it’s a competition none of us agreed to" I want to give the author of this quote the hardest dap ever.
Louisiana cuts state funding for libraries: While some Louisiana parishes may be able to manage the loss of state library funding, others will be adversely affected.
Citing budget concerns, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has signed a $25-billion budget that eliminates almost $900,000 in state funding for its libraries. In a statement, the governor’s chief budget aide, Paul Rainwater, said, “In tight budget times, we prioritized funding for healthcare and education. Operations such as local libraries can be supported with local, not state dollars.”
On Thursday, Library Journal took a look at that assertion. What they found was that while some local parishes may be able to cover the funding gap, others will feel the loss. Rural parishes will face a particularly daunting challenge.
One of those parishes is Concordia, located on the Louisiana-Mississippi border. Library Journal spoke to the Concordia Parish Library's director, Amanda Taylor.
“There’s no longer a food stamp office; there’s no longer a social security office. In our rural parish, a lot of our people have low literacy skills and very few computer skills. They come to the library because all of that has to be done online. There are some offices in some bigger areas but there’s no mass transportation and a lot of our people do not have transportation to a place that’s two hours away. A lot of our people have children in the military and they come to email their children that are all over the world on these bases. And almost all of the companies require you to do a job application online, even if it’s just for a truck driver who doesn’t need to be great at computer skills, so it is very important that we offer this service.”
This might be the saddest thing I’ve read all day.
Libraries are such an important resource in low-income areas. Computers, printers and internet access are not something everyone has. Yes, of course, they have books and books are important, but as the quote above demonstrates, libraries actually help decrease unemployment by providing accessible computer services. I hope local counties will find a way to keep the libraries open.

When comments are better than the article, Atlantic edition (“The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials aren’t buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy”)
The Atlantic also recently pondered why millennials aren’t having babies. Um… because kids are fucking expensive? Just a thought.
While Brooklyn Nine-Nine surprised many Golden Globes viewers when it took home two trophies at this year’s ceremony, its freshman season has been churning out one solid episode after another. And not only is the show hysterical, but it may be the most progressive show on TV. The cop comedy is on-point when it comes to portraying women, gay characters and people of color. Other shows should take notes when attempting to deliver a similarly progressive message to a millennial audience.
