geekyjessica:

its kinda scary how your whole life depends on how well you do as a teenager 

NOPE. NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE

Nope.

That’s a lie they tell you in order to help control you.  You can start all over any time in your life.  If you get arrested and go to jail, that can really make things difficult for you later on. 

Otherwise, there are literally fifty bajillion different ways you can start over at any time in your life.  AT. ANY. TIME.  

That’s the truth.

What Jess said. 1000x what Jess said.

My Dad retired from the Air Force and went back to school to get his PhD at the age of 60. He reinvented himself at SIXTY YEARS OLD. And now he’s a university professor and a researcher and he loves it. I left a decade-long career in advertising and am studying to be an archivist and I am super excited about all the new possibilities I have.

If you love something, do it. If you stop loving that thing, stop doing it and do something else. It will probably be hard and scary and some people will resist the change. But you are so much more than one thing, you should NEVER lock yourself into one future.

The Toast is singular among the ladyblogs. It is primarily a humor site with a heavy focus on the literary, pop culture and general nerdy content targeting young women. It doesn’t trade in celebrity gossip, and its editors, Nicole Cliffe and Mallory Ortberg, do not work for a man.

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

When I was at Auburn, there were always church groups - usually fundamentalists - who would preach on the concourse in the center of campus. You learned to ignore them, even when they called you “whore” for being in a sorority, or “lesbian” for having a short haircut, or whatever other untrue/awful/controversial thing they wanted to say to get you to pay attention to them.
But every so often there’d be this one guy with a little orange book. He would stand on the concourse and warn students of the evils of Sam I Am and his offerings. “THOU SHALT NOT EAT OF THE GREEN EGGS AND HAM!!!!” he’d bellow, usually drowning out anyone else there. That guy was awesome. That guy always attracted the biggest crowds.

“We do our best to archive stuff, but we still worry about that… tech history is full of replacements, for search engines, browsers, social media, video game consoles… what happens when it goes away?” wondered Su. “It’s that whole ‘don’t build a house on someone’s else’s property.’” But what if building on someone else’s property is what makes your storytelling unique in the first place? It’s a conundrum. Successful transmedia storytelling is a balancing act between utilizing different platforms and modern technology, while knowing the same technology that powers your story is unreliable and, ultimately, temporary.

Word. Archiving is an enormous challenge. One we need to solve if we want this type of storytelling to grow.

Fortunately, I have some ideas on the topic. Did I say “ideas”? I meant plans with plans.
