it really pisses me off how people who are good at maths/science/history/etc are seen as the intelligent ones and will go far in life but also seen as the “boring” ones, but writers and artistic/creative people are seen as the interesting and talented ones but also unintelligent and doomed to be unsuccessful like shit bro how the fuck do any of us win
Do both! ☺
"Sally I disagree. I think the term "harmful stereotype" is removing culture from the world. Name one cultural element I mentioned that’s insulting [he talked about a hypothetical situation where a sombrero-wearing Mexican, a Japanese girl dressed as a geisha and a Chinese boy dressed in a kung-fu outfit etc. were depicted in an American film at a high school prom]. To me, I listed things that were awesome. If you see those cultures as inferior, maybe you see those cultural traits as insulting. I don’t.” - Robert Brown
This is a sad day. I have had to unfriend Captain Robert Brown of Abney Park on Facebook… I’m tired of seeing his deliberately provocative and really quite ignorant opinions all over my Facebook feed followed by he and his fans utterly slamming anyone who disagrees with him. Why open up a debate when you’re not open to changing your mind or seeing things from someone else’s point of view? It’s actually kinda put me off his music too ☹
Capital Rocks (Help A Capital Child, Capital FM, Global Radio) at the Camden Roundhouse ~ 28.11.2013
Great night last night at Help A Capital Child’s annual gala, Capital Rocks. Help A Capital Child are my family’s favourite charity and my former place of employment - check them out, they’re great. An excess of alcohol was had, tons of money was donated (I’m trying not to think how much I threw at The Wheel of Fortune) and I am the happy winner of muchos swag! One of my besties, Amy, came with me this year so I had someone to keep me company on the dance floor. The acts were great (not my usual cup of tea, but Jessie J in particular was amazing), the food excellent and of course, all the free BOOOOOOOOZE.
I have spent most the day sleeping and hungover in bed. I hope I am recovered in time for the big University of Birmingham Reunion tomorrow!
Reblogging this a day late (I think), but whoa mama, happy birthday indeed, sexiest of all the sexy Danes.
I scored 9.09 out of 10 on this Facial Beauty Analysis test. Woohoo! *Preens*
Not exactly the most accurate test and ultimately concepts of beauty are a load of bollocks; the world would be a really boring place if everyone found the same thing attractive (and men aren’t exactly flocking to me, in fact the opposite). Still, I needed the boost; I spend way too much fretting over my plain-Jane face and stupid legs.
FIRST PICTURE FROM YONDERLAND!! AHHHH! Simon looks amazing!!
