If but every thought be left unspoken

I hate being the kind of sick where you try to burp and foam rises from the depths of your esophagus like a bubbly mucus Kraken and you have to decide if spitting it out is worth the energy it takes to get to the bathroom.

Female BAMFs Throughout History


I’m always wanting to read more about these posts immediately and I have trouble finding the sources.

Is it kind of entertaining/ridiculous watching 8th graders "date?" What's your take on seeing them together in the halls?

Oh it was…entertaining, yes, that is a good word. It is so interesting because at that age everything is so all consuming. “We gonna be together forever.” I’d put on my poker face and nod and say, “OK.” Do we “ship” students as teachers? Yeah, a little. I can look at pair of kids and think, they have attributes that would compliment each other when they get out of this teenage funk. It is hell though when there’s a breakup because they turn into children, “Can you tell him to stop looking at me before I smack him?” 

"Will you come to our wedding?"

"If it lasts that long and you remember me to send an invite, sure."

I shit you not, they were broken up a week later. Everything at that age seems so permanent. Seeing the couples in the halls grossed me out but most forms of PDA do. They’d do that hand holding, swinging and the guys having that possessive “this is my woman” clutch or arm over the shoulders. So one time I asked this one couple to stop clinging to each other outside their locker (more than just a personal bias, the school had a policy) and they would roll their eyes. So I’d stare at them and make a “ugly face Snapchat” look at them until they stopped. It worked.

I don’t know. I try not to be jaded, but it’s not easy. So watching 14 year old students who can scarcely construct a full and complete sentence toy around with sex and then talk about it at school about how they were being dangerous by not having safe sex…it scares me a little. I have no jurisdiction over their bodies or actions, I know this. Villainizing sex isn’t the answer, but that’s a whole other thing.

So yes, I find couples in 8th grade entertaining. Mostly obnoxious, but also entertaining.

Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.

When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages.

Photos of Keke Palmer’s debut as Cinderella will bring tears to your eyes

Keke Palmer took the stage Tuesday night as the title character in Broadway’s Cinderella, marking the first time an African-American actress has played the role on theater’s biggest stage.

So as many of you know I have recently gotten my first tattoo. I got the Tree of Gondor on the anniversary of Tolkien’s death (September 2). The French phrase is “l’appel du vide” which literally translated means “the call of the void” or “the call of the emptiness”. It is that feeling when you’re up really high and you look down and all you want to do is jump. You can click on the pictures for captions. The last picture was taken a little while ago. As you can see it is healing really well so far. I will have her add some detail to the crown and extend the right side out and fill in the places that have disappeared around the lettering and maybe darken the outline (white ink doesn’t take well).

The tattoo artist (who is awesome) is Cari Dangit. Yeah, you read that right and yes that’s her real name.

So…what do you guys think?
