i’m trying to support team a:tla and a:tlk but it’s hard when your cable doesn’t want to cooperate.
It’s in San Francisco and its really really small. As in it fits between two buildings. I know it exists because I saw a picture of it a while ago and I remember thinking “this is where I’ll be spending most of my time studying.” I think I saw it here on tumblr and I saved the picture but I deleted that tumblr so now it’s gone.
Idk how I got into Penn State. It’s like around a 50% acceptance rate which compared to USF is a lot lower. It’s considered a public ivy. How the fuck did I get accepted there? In high school, I was just la dee dading around. I didn’t play any significant role in hs. I was average, too lazy to get into honors or ap classes but hard working enough to do well in my classes. I was in like, 2 clubs (the filipino one and the indian, sorta, i just appeared in their year book pictures. Colleges dont really look into that stuff) and played soccer for one year (though technically it was 4 months and ive told people ive played ranging from 1 year to 3 years). I think it was because I was an out of state student. Or maybe my essay. I bsed a lot. Saying I’m out going because I randomly tried out for soccer junior year. In reality, I wasn’t even thinking in junior year. Junior year was like a fuck what other people think kind of year for me. Twas a blur at the same time. I did a lot of weird shit in junior year. Sitting in an English class so I didn’t have to be a loner at lunch. Soccer. Cutting up my own hair because I didn’t trust the chinese people and I was lazy. Getting into tumblr and fucking up my chemistry grade. My definition of “shit” in my junior year pretense is more like monkeying around “shit”.
“We journalists love writing about eccentrics. We hate writing about impenetrable, boring people. It makes us look bad: the duller the interviewee, the duller the prose. If you want to get away with wielding true, malevolent power, be boring.”—Jon Ronson, The Psychopath Test
i was talking to myself earlier and i came to the conclusion that i want to be the space ambassador. since i’m into politics and space and i actually want to be an astronaut, this was the logical choice for me. honestly, by the time i’m 40, there probably will be a need for a space ambassador so why not let it be me?
but of course i have no choice to do anything but medicine because 1) i’ve been on the med track for i don’t even know how long so if i stop now people will be pissed 2) i’m pretty sure my mom might slap me 3) people have already lined up to be my patients so…
uuuuugh i wish i double majored in political science and physics.
OVER A million Iraqis are dead from America’s war.
That sentence is a cognitive litmus test. Some people’s immediate reaction is, “That can’t be right,” because the United States couldn’t do that. Or because crimes on that scale don’t still happen. Or because they do happen, but only in horrible places that the United States hasn’t rescued.
One million is a “Grandpa, what did you do to stop it?” number. It’s a number that undeniably puts the American state among history’s villains. Those who are not willing or able to accept this are physically unable to retain the fact that over a million Iraqis are dead. Their brains expel it like a foreign germ.
Noam Chomsky once wrote that the “sign of a truly totalitarian culture is that important truths simply lack cognitive meaning and are interpretable only at the level of ‘Fuck You,’ so they can then elicit a perfectly predictable torrent of abuse in response.”
That pretty much sums up the how the media reacted to the one million figure in 2007 when it was announced by the British polling firm Opinion Research Business (ORB). (In fact, the firm estimated 1,220,580 Iraqis had died, confirming and updating a separate study done the year before by researchers from Johns Hopkins University and published in the Lancet medical journal.)
