TAXES ARE LOOMING. But hopefully will be less traumatic than last year because I’ve actually been on fucking W-2 for the majority of this year. Fuck 1099s. Seriously, unless you are truly a contract worker/self employed (and will actually have write offs) DO NOT WORK ON ONE. You will be SO FUCKED when taxes come around. D:
As much as crossfit appeals to me, whenever I actually research it and look up the movements associated with the WOD I know I’d just end up shredding what’s left of my knees. Back squats? More like won’t be able to walk without hobbling for a week squats. Box jumps? Same deal. Blehhh. Bums me out.
(Please note that I am not implying that Crossfit stuff causes these problems, just that it would be a very bad combo for my body in particular.)

What men mean when they talk about their “crazy” ex-girlfriend is often that she was someone who cried a lot, or texted too often, or had an eating disorder, or wanted too much/too little sex, or generally felt anything beyond the realm of emotionally undemanding agreement. That does not make these women crazy. That makes those women human beings, who have flaws, and emotional weak spots. However, deciding that any behavior that he does not like must be insane– well, that does make a man a jerk.
And when men do this on a regular basis, remember that, if you are a woman, you are not the exception. You are not so cool and fabulous and levelheaded that they will totally get where you are coming from when you show emotions other than “pleasant agreement.”
When men say “most women are crazy, but not you, you’re so cool” the subtext is not, “I love you, be the mother to my children.” The subtext is “do not step out of line, here.” If you get close enough to the men who say things like this, eventually, you will do something that they do not find pleasant. They will decide you are crazy, because this is something they have already decided about women in general.
um you guys
IF THIS ISN’T THE GREATEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN THEN YOU’RE LYING
this is the culmination of the entire history of classical music
are you serious
Somebody made a piece for an orchestra arranged around a cat messing with a piano. This is wonderful.
This cat is trying to step onto the keyboard to sleep or something and they wrote A SONG FOR IT.
What did I even just watch?
The best thing ever. GO WATCH IT AGAIN.
This is the world we live in. Yes.
