freshman me on 1st day of school: omg i cant wait to learn so much practical material from people who love what they teach and increase my passion for learning and knowledge!

sophomore me: nevr again bitch

little known fact

jrr tolkien modeled hobbits, the fantasy race of short lazy and hairy humanoids which appear in many of his works such as lord of the rings and the hobbit, after me

i really really wonder what asoiaf would be like - not jsut the series itself but its (and dany’s) reception by fans and critics and like other media outlets - if grrm had made the targaryens black like he said he considered at some point

I was alone for a long time… All alone but for my brother. I was such a small scared thing. Viserys should have protected me, but instead he hurt me and scared me worse. He shouldn’t have done that. He wasn’t just my brother, he was my king. Why do the gods make kings and queens, if not to protect the ones who can’t protect themselves? … Justice… that’s what kings are for.

i honestly enjoy my own company so much, its refreshing not to participate in meaningless conversations & force relationships that have no longevity

And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.
