i find it funny that “i like big butts” has always been a well-liked song, but as soon as Nicki Minaj samples it and shows off her amazing ass in a video, suddenly OH MY GOD WHAT A SLUT PUT THAT AWAY
like, it’s okay for a guy to talk about how much he loves butts
but it’s not okay for women to love their own butts
funny how that works
Christine Kim is a Toronto-based artist who works primarily in illustration and cut paper collage. Her work explores issues of boundaries; in particular, she is interested in shorelines, where land and water meet in harmony and dissonance. Through her artwork she speaks to a sense of being uprooted, displaced, circling around borderlines both permeable and permanent.
Okay, so before I head off to bed, I’m really bad at like replying when people reply to posts. Like I know there’s some way of copy-pasting and making another post, but I’m too lazy for that. And I guess I could also go to people’s asks and say stuff, but… I don’t… usually. So I am sorry.
So if you’ve every said something nice to me via a reply to a text post just rest assured that I saw it and I appreciated it and it probably made me smile, so thanks.
That said, the people I have recently not replied to:
nicole-on-wheels and butterbong: Thanks for the kind words on that whining-about-the-GRE post. I’m sure it’s gonna be fine (maybe I’ve just entered denial at this point, as I’m taking it in like ten days). And it was good to hear other STEM people have also like forgotten the law of cossines or how to do permutations or other dumb GRE math stuff.
lucyballoonpants: Yes, I’m studio assisting for Sarah this year! I’m excited. I quit bon apetite a whiiiile ago. Sometime during winter term sophomore year when I was dying because comp mech and algebra at the same time, I just decided SOMETHING had to go, and that job was what went. I was on the sub list for like ever though, ‘cause I was wishy-washing about quitting permanently. Last year I just did some physics tutoring and lab assisting. Also, I’m taking your wriston-monitor shift while you’re in london! Colleen just sent out an e-mail to all the majors in minors like “who wants to take this one shift fall term?” and I responded right away, and I got it. So that will be nice too. It sounds like you don’t have to do that much and can work on your own stuff most of the time sooo I’m excited.
foreverware: Yesss. October is proooobably the best month of the year.
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again:
the big bang theory is not a smart comedy. it relies on cliches and stereotypes that are offensive to everyone they reflect. there is little to no originality in any storyline or relationship.
the funniest thing about this show is that people compare it to 30 rock, parks and rec, louie, veep, etc
there is a difference between a smart show and a show that happens to have nerds on it.
Some positive/happy things in my life atm, ‘cause I feel like that last post was a lil’ heavy.
- I decided I’m dropping the bio class I was gonna take this term for Intro to Feminist Theory and Practice with a prof. I like. This is gonna be sooo much better/easier/more fun than a bio class. The bio class was 8:30 MWF and had a lab. This class is Tuesday/Thursday 2:30-4:20. I’m gonna have ZERO class in the AM hours. I am stoked to have my mornings to myself this term, it’s gonna be great. I’m gonna sleep when I need it and exercise and eat breakfast and get shit done; it’s gonna be so lovely.
- I unexpectedly got to go shopping today and we went to this department store discount type place and I got sooo much stuff. Including a few drapey tops that go great with leggings, a nice versatile black dress, this brown leather and print backpack-style bag I like a lot, a pair of black ankle boots with brass buckles and laces that I’m kinda in love with, and a pair of black peep-toe wedges that I really didn’t need and will probably die trying to walk in but they are like the highest comfort to highness ratio heels I have ever worn, ok? And I just really wanted them, ok?
- I’m actually not freaking out that much about grad. school stuff/GRE stuff. Now that I’ve basically decided optics at Rochester is my first choice (and a pretty darn realistic choice), I feel a lot less pressure to do well on the physics GRE (I should study anyway, I know), but whenever I start to get nervous about it, I’m just like, “… It actually most likely will not matter at all, so calm down.”
- I’m doing so much clay stuff this school year. I’m a studio assistant all year, so fall term I’m gonna be doing senior experience stuff and whatever else I want in the studio. Winter term I’m taking advanced ceramics and it’s gonna be great. Spring term I’m taking the topics class and also, don’t plan on giving a fuck about anything that term, so I’ll probably spend a lot of time in the studio working on whatever I feel like. And when I’m not in the stuio, I’ll be at the VR :D
- I’ve been running quite a bit this summer and almost back to where I was around this time last year (last winter/spring term killed me). Can’t wait to get back to my appleton routes and run in the fall weather/changing leaves.
- Super excited about fall in general. Pumpkin everything! And sweaters!
