When you collect data to prove what you’ve already decided you want to prove, that’s not science. That’s marketing.
There are no exceptions to this rule.
Ya know I’ve never thought of it like this. But this is so true.
I’ve been struggling with faith for a couple years now, and this casts further doubt.
Part of me is thankful for that.
Another part of me is pissed, because for every argumentative and/or persuasive paper I’ve ever written, we had to come up with our point - our thesis, our conclusion - and then find reliable (academic) sources to back it up. Which is just really, really discouraging.
DO YOU EVER JUST GET UNREASONABLY EMOTIONAL OVER LORD OF THE RINGS MUSIC
For the two months following the break up with my ex, I listened to almost nothing but the three LOTR soundtracks. It was my refuge and escape and comfort and how I got through the days. Escaping to Middle Earth on the wings of Howard Shore. <3
look at the buttons i bought
I DO DESIRE WE MAY BE STRANGERS
I OWN THESE!! YOU GOT THESE AT THE GLOBE THEATRE!!! :D AREN’T THEY JUST THE BEST?! :D And I love that scene from Much Ado About Nothing! :D
the abc’s of james mcavoy → QT (aka cutest bb in the history of ever)
I had a big crush on Shawn Hunter, from Boy Meets World, as well as Eric Matthews.
I also had a crush on Cory Matthews, but I’m focusing on the other two because of hair reasons. I loved their hair. The part down the middle with the gentle wave/sweep down the sides of the forehead, sometimes approaching covering the eyes. I loved it then, and I still love it. For whatever reason, it’s something that I find instantly attractive. I have no doubt that it’s part of my adoration for James McAvoy. :)
Cuz I’m the youngest one. :) Well, at least I used to be, until my nephew was born. :shrug:
sometimes you just need to lay on the floor
YES. Every time I go anywhere with a carpeted floor space large enough, I have a strong urge to lay down and sprawl out like I’m making carpet-angels. And I want to just roll around.
I think it comes from growing up in a house of hoarders (me included, to be honest). :P
Oh my god, I DO THIS ALL THE TIME.
But it’s more than just that. I do it when I’m reading a book but also when watching tv or a movie. And if there’s a fight going on, I react to the punches and blows. I even do this when I’m out and about in public or people watching. I copy facial expressions, or try to imitate body movements or interesting sounds I hear. I do it automatically, without thinking about it. Thankfully it’s not constant, I don’t always do it. Except when I’m reading. When I’m reading, I pretty much always do it. XD
Those Aussie Things: Fairy Bread
I live in California, and my mom used to make this for me and my sisters all the time when we were kids. I asked my mom where she learned it, and my mom said she learned it from her mom, my grandma.
It’s easy and fast, and cheap. And yummy. :) And happy. ^_^
I tried one of those electric cigarettes from my brother and holy fuck it tasted like really old and nasty tea. If that’s how the fake ones taste I never wanna know what the real ones taste like. DX
Smoking is the single most repulsive normal habit someone can have, apart from treating others horribly (including physical/sexual/mental harm). Obviously extreme things that involve like, I dunno, feces or something, are more repulsive. But in the realm of normal bad habits, smoking is by far the most repulsive for me. I literally do not want to be anywhere near people who are smoking, and/or just smoked, and/or smell like cigarette/cigar smoke.
- more time, less things to do
- “if I could do all these things while my schedule was an orgy of work, I could do much more with more time”
- “if I could handle that much pressure and still be productive, I can be even more productive”
- “these things are easier to do than what I used to do so I don’t need to worry about them as much”
- “I can relax”
- “I don’t have to break a sweat”
YES. YES YES YES.
The more time I have to myself, the less I get done. I need to have structure, a regular schedule that fills up my time. Otherwise I’m playing Pokemon all frigging day long. And if I lived in a vacuum I’d be okay with that. But I don’t live in a vacuum and I have stuff that I should be doing and family members that get mad at me for not doing them.
