America, Bad, and Be Like: Lou Ohio I need to get my life off my chest. About me. I'm a 46 year old banker and I have been living my whole life the opposite of how I wanted. All my dreams, my passion, gone. In a steady 9-7 job. 6 days a week. For 26 years. I repeatedly chose the safe path for everything, which eventually changed who I was. Today I found out my wife has been cheating on me for the last 10 years. My son feels nothing for me. I realised I missed my father's funeral FOR NOTHING. I didn't complete my novel, travelling the world, helping the homeless. All these things I thought I knew to be a certainty about myself when i was in my late teens and early twenties. If my younger self had met me today, I would have punched myself in the face. I'll get to how those dreams were crushed soon. Let's start with a description of me when I was 20. It seemed only yesterday when I was sure I was going to change the world. People loved me, and I loved people. I was innovative, creative, spontaneous, risk taking and great with people. I had two dreams. The first, was writing a utopic/dystopic book. The second, was travelling the world and helping the poor and homeless. I had been dating my wife for four years by then. Young love. She loved my spontaneity, my energy, my ability to make people laugh and feel loved. I knew my book was going to change the world I would show the perspective of the 'bad' and the twisted', showing my viewers that everybody thinks differently, that people never think what the do is wrong. I was 70 pages through when i was 20.I am still 70 pages in, at 46. By 20, I had backpacking around New Zealand and the Philippines. I planned to do all of Asia, then Europe, then America To date, I have only been to New Zealand and the Philippines. Now, we get to where it all went wrong. My biggest regrets. I was 20. I was the only child. I needed to be stable. I needed to take that graduate job, which would dictate my whole life. To devote my entire life in a 9-7 job. What was I thinking? How could I live when the job was my life? After coming home, I would eat dinner, prepare my work for the following day, and sleep at 10pm, to wake up at 6am the following day God, I can't remember the last time I've made love to my wife Yesterday, my wife admitted to cheating on me for the last 10 years. 10 years. That seems like a long time, but i can't comprehend it. It doesn't even hurt. She says it's because I've changed. I'm not the person l was. What have I been doing in the last 10 years? Outside of work, I really can't say anything. Not being a proper husband. Not being ME. Who am 1? What happened to me? I didn't even ask for a divorce, or yell at her, or cry. I felt NOTHING. Now I can feel a tear asl write this. But not because my wife has been cheating on me, but because I am now realising I have been dying inside. What happened to that fun-loving, risk taking, energetic person that was me, hungering to change the world? I remember being asked on a date by the most popular girl in the school, but declining her for my now-wife. God, I was really popular with the girls in high school. In university/college too. But i stayed loyal. I didn't explore. I studied every day Remember all that backpacking and book-writingI told you about? That was all in the first few years of college. I worked part-time and splurged all that I had earned. Now, I save every penny. I don't remember a time I spend anything on anything fun. On anything for myself. What do I even want now? My father passed ten years ago. I remember getting calls from mom, telling me he was getting sicker and sicker. I was getting busier and busier, on the verge of a big promotion. I kept putting my visit off, hoping in my mind he would hold on. He died, and I got my promotion. I haven't seen him in 15 years. When he died, I told myself it didn't matter what I didn't see him. I rationalized that being dead, it wouldn't matter anyway. WHAT WAS I THINKING? Rationalizing everything, making excuses to put things off. Excuses Procrastination. It all leads to one thing, nothing. I rationalized that financial security was the most important thingInow know, that it definitely is not. I regret doing nothing with my energy, when I had it. My passions. My youth. I regret letting my job take over my life. I regret being an awful husband, a money- making machine. I regret not finishing my novel, not travelling the world. Not being emotionally there for my son. Being a damn emotionless wallet. If you're reading this, and you have a whole life ahead of you, please. Don't procrastinate. Don't leave your dreams for later. Relish in your energy, your passions. Don't stay on the internet with all your spare time (unless your passion needs it). Please, do something with your life while you're young. DO NOT settle down at 20. DO NOT forget your friends, your family Yourself. Do NOT waste your life. Your ambitions. Like I did mine. Do not be like me srsfunny: A Sad But Common Story

Brains, Nerd, and Shit: mariaschuyler I just got the weirdest feeling I swear you-deserve-a-rhink OK LISTEN THERE ARE REASONS FOR THIS!!! A lot of these places are called liminal spaces - which means they are throughways from one space to the next. Places like rest stops, stairwells, trains, parking lots, waiting rooms, airports feel weird when you're in them because their existence is not about themselves, but the things before and after them. They have no definitive place outside of their relationship to the spaces you are coming from and going to Reality feels altered here because we're not really supposed to be in them for a long time for think about them as their own entities, and when we do they seem odd and out of place The other spaces feel weird because our brains are hard-wired for context - we like things to belong to a certain place and time and when we experience those things outside of the context our brains have developed for them, our brains are like NOPE SHIT THIS ISN'T RIGHT GET OUT ABORT ABORT. Schools not in session, empty museums, being awake when other people are asleep - all these things and spaces feel weird because our brain is like "I already have a context for this space and this is not it so it must be dangerous." Our rational understanding can sometimes override that immediate "danger'" impulse but we're still left with a feeling of wariness and unease Listen I am very passionate about liminal spaces they are fascinating stuff or perhaps I am merely a nerd 883,376 notes Liminal spaces

Bad, Basic Bitch, and Bitch: IF MY BODY BOTHERS YOU, YOU ARE THE PROBLENM I DESERVE AN EQUAL EDUCATION REGARDLESS OF GENDER. <p><a href="http://antifeministcunt.tumblr.com/post/99950448619/brbcheckingmyprivilege-uncumpaired-preparing" class="tumblr_blog">antifeministcunt</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://brbcheckingmyprivilege.tumblr.com/post/99948893826/uncumpaired-preparing-to-wear-this-to-school" class="tumblr_blog">brbcheckingmyprivilege</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://uncumpaired.tumblr.com/post/99889547398/preparing-to-wear-this-to-school-tomorrow-the" class="tumblr_blog">uncumpaired</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Preparing to wear this to school tomorrow, the signs on a t shirt and finger tip length Nike shorts (not allowed at my school)</p> </blockquote> <p>Lol why are American feminists so fucking dumb. Oh yes so oppressed because I can’t wear pretty short shorts. You know over here in the UK you have to wear a uniform and you follow the dress code or you will get removed from the class and repeated violations will result in suspension. This meant at school I could not dye my hair any ‘unnatural’ colours a girl did and got made to dye it out straight away. They were less strict on cracking down on make up or naul varnish but I remember in the younger years getting sent to the nurse to remove my nail polish. </p> <p>At the end of the day if you went to work at a company they have strict guidelines about what you can andcannot wear. You also have restrictions on dying your hair, piercings covering up tattoos all these things now some places they are less strict others stricter depending on which kind of business environment you go into. </p> <p>Our school personally believed at 6th form which is one of the only times places allow you to come in in non school uniform except ours said to wear business suits. Because it was meant to prepare us for if we ever got office jobs or high up corporate jobs or just you know for when you go to interviews you are expected to dress smart etc. </p> <p>My question to you is. You are a lucky bitch you even get to wear non uniform as it is. You are going into an environment and if you ever get a job you would NOT dare do anything like this why is a school any different to a work environment? It is meant to be preparing you to go out into the world and get a job. In which you have to follow rules and regulations to keep said job. If you cannot follow one simple fucking rule and want to act like a snarky privileged uptight first world problems basic bitch then what are you gonna do when you want to get a job? Cos no one is gonna employ you if you can’t dress appropriately for the work place. </p> <p>This is not edgy and cool and wow fight the patriarchy those evil bastards. Realistically you would never be allowed to wear that in a job unless you were a fitness or PE instructor/teacher. If you go to an institution and you are a child you follow their rules. What the fuck is wrong with your parents to allow this.  Never mind women who have no rights over their bodies never mind women under rule of sharia law I need feminism because I can’t handle reasonable rules and regulations that a school has EVERY RIGHT to put in place. </p> <p>Get over yourself as I said most countries have uniforms for a reason if you cannot understand why we have these rules and why they are put in place then you are stupid.and are gonna struggle to get a job if you do not understand why certain clothes are not acceptable within certain environments.</p></blockquote> <p>^ yes</p></blockquote> <p>&ldquo;I deserve an education regardless of my gender&rdquo; and you are offered the opportunity for one. You just have to adhere to the rules. Why don&rsquo;t you go whining to that little Middle Eastern girl who was nearly assassinated for trying to get an education? &ldquo;Oh you think that&rsquo;s bad? I can&rsquo;t wear certain pair of shorts to my school!&rdquo;</p>
