Let’s talk about rape for a moment. Rape is not what George Lucas did to your childhood. Rape is not what happens when a sports team beats another sports team by a wide margin. Rape is not what happens when your electric bill is higher this month than it was last month. Rape is when a person violates another person in the most despicable, degrading way imaginable and among the myriad of terrible things humans can do to one another, rape is among the worst. I think the casual misappropriation of the concept of rape extending all the way to its widespread comical usage is disgusting even by Internet standards. Off my chest.” —Jeffrey Rowland (via byzantines)
food network is on the tv in front of my elliptical.
UH. I want to make everything in it, especially Spicy Beef Noodle Soup. I want it so much. I want the smells, I want the spice, I want the slippery noodles in my mouth. But, as I was looking at the recipes for all the delicious foods, I realized that lots of the ingredients I need aren’t sold anywhere around my small, middle of Illinois town.
Today was a pretty big day. As in, I got two jobs. One is an unpaid internship in the education department of a museum about half an hour from my school. I’ll be working on a really cool project about digitizing images and updating an art history education program aimed at middle school students. And, my fellowship advisor asked me to be a research assistant for her book! I’ll be able to choose my own hours (max 20 hours a week), and I will get paid! ca$h money, baby! Plus, she said she would put me in the acknowledgment section of her book, which is pretty cool.
I am finally employed! And I don’t even have to work at a grocery store. I’m so happy! Now I am drinking wine out of a coffee mug and watch GhostHunters with my boyfriend’s roommate.
e.t.a. And now my boyfriend’s other roommate is making wontons. a delicious, boozy evening!
