This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.
That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.
This is why we download.

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 


not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

Will reblog every time I see it.

Swallow

It’s quite subtle:
the uneasiness my fingers take
as I commit to words that
mayormaynot
draw an adverse reaction.
The air within my lungs sucks in
the negative pressure
encasing my words
as I am onceagain caught.
Victim is a part I never want to play
but constantlyfeel,
yet I feel I do not have the right
to feel so.

So instead I swallow
and drown in my own drivel,
wallowing,
thinking that this too
shall pass.

Do not compare
every blonde hair on her head
to a sand storm
and your own brown bomb to
a pit of gravel.

She may have mountains
where you have mounds,
but you both are made of
star stuff.

She may know how to recite
age old books and poetry,
but you are in the stories.

She may be made of fire,
but you,
my Phoenix,
were born in it.

This is a real panda! China has this “panda diplomacy” and this one will be sent to Japan as an friendship envoy. For the safety reason he sits as a passenger with his feeder, not in a cage. Fastening the seat belt, wearing a diaper, eating bamboos

So I took the "Can We Guess Who You Are in 20 Questions" Quiz
 Most people said how it was horribly inaccurate. I’m caught being impressed at how “accurate” it is (black hair, dark eyes, own a pet, cute nose, etc.) and being upset that I’m stereotypical enough that my answers managed to tag me right (woman in my 20s).
Well, I’m not single. So. I guess it’s not completely accurate.

bagelarms:

a lot of ppl seem confused on what cultural appropriation is so lemme break it down

IT IS NOT: enjoying food from another culture, enjoying music from another culture, learning about another culture, or learning another language

IT IS: using another culture as a costume, wearing religious articles as accessories when you are not a follower of that religion, using a race as a mascot, disrespecting religious or cultural practices.
