Last night, I entered Central Park at midnight. I chased exhaustion as hard as I could, crested a hill without getting close. Descending fast, no hands, no helmet, a stinging on my face. I wanted July back. I never imagined a month could swell so fat with promise. It was just a spin, I see now, just a fast and furious spin. Someday I will look back with bemusement and calm. I see that, too. But in the park, at midnight, I just wanted to forget, to catch up to numbness. So I pedaled.
This Israel propaganda website released this video of an Israeli teenager doing the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. In it the sirens start going off because Hamas is shooting rockets and she runs off to a bomb shelter. The message being “Children should not have to deal with this. Stand with Israel.”
It will help us a lot right now to ignore the fact that in Gaza 98% of the water is not potable and if that girl wanted peace she should probably be sending the water to the Palestinian people rather than dumping it on her head.
Regardless, three boys in Gaza (not to be confused with the ones playing soccer on the beach that were firebombed by Israel) did their own ALS Ice Bucket challenge in response, only explaining that they have no water and so used rubble from their home that Israel destroyed.
It would take too long to explain why, but I walked into a Wal-Mart for the first time… since 2005? I don’t know. Either way, it was absolutely and instantly nauseating. Everything about that place is trash.
Anonymous said: I used to enjoy reading your blog. I too am just finishing up L1. It was funny with occasional marxists rants and good music links... However now all you do is get all emo over some pussy you aren't getting (or are getting either way its weird). Grow a pair either end it and forget her or fucking call her and tell her how you feel dipshit. P.S. she better be a smoking hot ginger or your an idiot. look up Karen Gillian pre haircut ;)
THE GIRL I AM BURNT OUT ON IS KAREN GILLIAN DO YOU SEE MY PROBLEM?
How law schools use the Federal Gov’t as an ATM machine:
"…schools accredited by the American Bar Association admit large numbers of severely underqualified students; these students in turn take out hundreds of millions of dollars in loans annually, much of which they will never be able to repay. Eventually, federal taxpayers will be stuck with the tab, even as the schools themselves continue to reap enormous profits.”
First day of 2L. Dragged my feet hard for the past two weeks and seriously considered dropping out. Finally excited for it, but it took a lot of time and had serious competition with Truffle Burgers and Ginger Beer.
Oh, and I guess I should complain about my schedule from hell. Four days a week on campus ~9am-7pm with four hours of class time and six hours of down time. What the actual fuck.
