Xerox the World and Call It My Life

I’m writing the story of Hansel and Gretel in Spanish for my grammar class, and all I can think of is how much I want to build a gingerbread house.


Odio la geografía de España.

Nunca he tenido una clase tan aburrida.

And seriously, you expect me to be able to look at a picture of a landscape and be able to tell what kind of paisaje agrario it is?????????? Fuck you, I can’t even tell if those are cows or sheep or pigs in your fucking grainy ass pictures.

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

But really, there are so many other things they could have put 50 million of in a box, and they chose currency???

Probably one of the dumbest political statements I’ve ever seen, but when you really think about it, what other things are worth less than a penny, besides grains of rice and corn kernels? Skittles are worth like 3 cents each. In fact, pennies aren’t even worth a penny (they’re worth more).
But the point remains that the effect is still kind of diminished because it’s a glass box not even half-full of pennies. View Larger

When I was in middle school I had to wear a uniform, but every month we would have “Free Dress Fridays,” where you were allowed to wear non-uniform but school-appropriate clothes.  The irony of it is that the clothes we wore on these days became their own sort of uniform, which, for girls was:

  • flare leg jeans, preferably with holes in the knees or strings coming off the hem (which my mom always begged me to cut off)
  • T-shirt with “Aeropostale” splashed across it or a brightly-colored polo (as opposed to the white polos we wore every day) with a different color cami underneath, from the same store (or American Eagle if your parents were fancy)
  • skateboard shoes (these were universal), which I did not even own but instead borrowed from my brother, who wore the same size shoes as me despite the fact that he was like 8 or 9 years old
  • For boys this generally included jeans or cargo shorts (because white boys down south wear shorts 24/7), polos from the above stores or T-shirts with surf/skate logos, and the aforementioned skateboard shoes (Sperrys didn’t become popular until later)

And I’m curious to know, is that how people dressed at your middle school (around 2005 or so), or was this a product of my specific sheltered enclave of suburban whiteness?
