  71. 6 stereotypes in Southern Gothic novels…plus attributes of a Southern Gothic novel itself…plus plain notes…
  72. 6 x 10 notes for each stereotype x 10 notes for the attributes x ~30 if you do 1 note per chapter…
  73. Holy fucking shit, that’s 100 notes…
  74. Do I really have to copy down 100 quotes into this stupid notebook?
  75. Copy reminds me – I have to SparkNotes Of Mice And Men.
  76. Because I have time to take 100 notes on 100 quotes for To Kill a Mockingbird, AND read another novel, and take 25 notes on 25 quotes for that, too.
  77. Even if the novel is apparently “super short”!
  78. “Only takes 1.5 hours to read”
  79. 1.5 hours where I could be staring into the void.
  80. Or, y’know, doing something.
  81. Running or shit.
  82. Speaking of running, I should start.
  83. WORK!!!
  84. Didn’t you advocate slowly reading, to ‘learn something’?
  85. Won’t happen if 50 of my classmates and I are barreling through the TWO books you’ve assigned at 12:23 AM looking for something, ANYTHING that could possibly be noteworthy.
  86. Honestly, the American educational system sucks.
  87. We always get the most work at the end of the year.
  88. Not my fault teachers can’t pace themselves.
  89. We spent three ! months ! writing an argument essay that was 6 pages long, double spaced, and now we have 15 school days to finish 2 novels.
  90. So happy we have 15 school days.
  91. Even if that means I have to bust my ass this last month or so.

  93. Which I should stop thinking.
  94. But I can’t, since I’ve already started.
  95. Yikes, four missing assignments that I have to make up.
  96. 3 for science and 1 for SS.
  97. I don’t even think teachers will accept them anymore.
  98. 125 notes on quotes, plus 4 missing assignments.
  99. Again: when can I DIE!!!!!!
  100. For real this time.

in which i review FASHUN!

This year’s theme: Manus X Machina, which is probably just another excuse to wear SPARKLY LATEX and use underrepresented letters of the alphabet.

(photos taken from vogue.com)

Liu Wen

It’s like she went to Home Depot, bought a silver pipe and some crab traps, and sewed them together. But/And somehow, SHE LOOKS AMAZING!!!

Este, Danielle, & Alana Haim

Danielle and Alana look like they’re shunning Este. Screw you! We were supposed to dress completely like the set of AHS: Coven, and now you’ve ruined it with this weird brownish color.

Taylor Swift

“It’s not a phase, mom! Just FRIKIN’ deal with it.”

Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas decided at the last minute that f-ck you, he should be able to wear a broken condom in his boutonniere.

Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban

Nicole looks like she forgot about the Met Gala and realized, at the last minute that shit, she actually has to GO to this thing. So she drove to Jo-Ann’s and picked up the first gauzy fabric she could find, dumped a bottle of glitter glue on it, tied on a string of Christmas lights to hold it together, and called it a day. Keith Urban looks like the candlestick from Beauty and the Beast.

Jennifer Hudson

 Jennifer Hudson looks like the duster from Beauty and the Beast. #Kennifer? Also, her lip gloss be POPPIN’.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

“Are you F-CKING with me? We didn’t get the cover of InTouch Weekly this week? Hold on, Kanye, call my plastic surgeon, we’re going to need 50 gumballs and a bathtub…”

Selena Gomez

Selena looks like she finally got to do what all girls want to do when they get a fancy new sports bra.

Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss

I can’t even critique their fashion choices. I’m too busy staring at their UNBELIEVABLY RECTANGULAR HEADS. Also, Tyra Banks thought she had a five-head? Ooooohhhh mmmmyyyy gooooddddd.

Irina Shayk

Irina looks like a 80’s beach motel. Also, this is not theme-appropriate at all : is she saying that in the future we’re ALL going to be wearing sea stars and plastic beads?

Emma Stone



She looks like a fancy latex peach emoji. A beautiful peach emoji. Also, damn, her butt is like a freakin’ bubble. Kim K could never. Love you B <3

Stacy Martin

Tell me that you don’t look at this and see ‘curtain’?

Aja Naomi King

Damn, that dress is gorgeous against her skin. -10 for not fitting the theme though…unless the futuristic element is…a black woman getting…media coverage…holy shit…

don’t you hate it when…

you fall off the wagon?

Doesn’t it kind of suck, a lot, when you don’t do what you wanted to do? I wanted to turn this blog into a crankin’, bee-boppin’ TEENAGE EMOTION MACHINE, churning out content faster than a factory in a 3rd world country where the workers aren’t paid minimum wage.

But, instead, overdramatically, I stopped posting. [insert dramatic music] But, now, as without an outlet, my emotions are out of control, I’m going to start posting again. Maybe daily?

This post is just cringe-ity, cringe cringe cringe.

Why am I so afraid of being embarrassed of what I’ve done in the past?

More degree-less psychoanalysis tomorrow.

why i support #WomenInSTEM

short answer: because it’s 2016????

The beautiful woman above is Hedy Lamarr. She was an A-list actress in the early 20th century known for her racy films, and her roles as an stereotypical ‘exotic’ seductress from Eastern Europe. She married the 3rd wealthiest man in Austria, where she was originally from, at the age of 19. In fact, she married (and divorced) six times, the last time to her own divorce lawyer.

What a floozy, right? Actually, she was a f-cking bada$$.

Hedy was Jewish by birth (her mother later converted to Catholicism) in the Sound of Music-era Austria. That rich first husband of hers held lavish parties for Hilter and Mussolini, and sold armaments to them. She escaped him by disguising herself as her maid. When WWII broke out, she used her influence to rescue her mother from Nazi dominated Europe.

But this isn’t all that makes the baddest b!tch out of the Balkan region. Hedy said, “Jack Kennedy always said to me, Hedy, get involved. That’s the secret of life. Try everything. Join everything. Meet everybody.” She did, in a major way. After the outbreak of WWII, she wanted to help with the war effort. However, Hedy was told that instead of assisting with the technology behind the war, she should sell war bonds. They seemed to think she wouldn’t be able to help through scientific inventions.

They were right. Her scientific invention didn’t help the Allies win WWII.

It was only used in US Navy ships of the Cuban Missile Crisis-era. Today, it’s practically useless – it’s just in spread-spectrum communication technology, namely Bluetooth, GPS, cell phones, and Wi-Fi. The point is, Hedy’s case is just one example of the great things incredible women can do in STEM, if only given the chance. Hell, Hedy was never given the chance, and she still invented a brilliant piece of technology that we still use today.

Despite the achievements of Hedy Lamarr and many others, women are still severely underrepresented in STEM. Only one in seven engineers is female. An overwhelming 73% percent of computer science degrees are held by men. It simply amazes me that here, in 2016, women do not see science, technology, engineering, or math as possibilities for their futures, and that STEM careers still carry the stigma of being ‘unfeminine’ or ‘only for men’. So even as we celebrate and encourage #WomenInSTEM, we need to remember – why are we even having this conversation in the first place?
