I’ve been tumbling from my phone all day, so I didn’t know what the changes everyone was talking about were all about. Now I’m on my laptop and suffice it to say…do not approve.
I haven’t explored it enough to discover all of the specifics as of yet, but so far I’m not a fan of the new autocomplete for tags, and I preferred my posts to take me to a new page instead of this pop-up nonsense. I’ll probably be used to it in a few days, but thus far, I don’t see these changes as being useful or helpful.
EDIT: I really like the Publish/Queue/Save dropdown menu being attached to the bottom button, but everything else seems to just slow things down more and hinder me from easily using this site the way I would like to use it.
Ugh, I’ve left my phone at work, and now I’ve become that asshole who goes through withdrawal without their smartphone for more than a few hours.
Seriously, though, I didn’t realize how much I relied on it always being on me until it was gone. It’s driving me crazy, I keep forgetting it’s not here & re-remembering that I don’t have it.
I’ve never been one for naming my inanimate belongings…apparently I don’t name them until I miss them. It’s like when I thought my computer died, and suddenly she was Donna. Apparently my phone’s name is Pippin, because my brain keeps going come back to me, Pippin!
I’m editing a paper for my best friend for the first time in…many months.
As of a few weeks from now, I will have graduated a year ago, and I’ve only been back to campus twice in that time.
Reading an academic paper for her again is:
(a.) Making me miss the world of academia
(b.) Making me thank my lucky stars that I don’t have to deal with final exams and term papers anymore
(c.) Making me miss my best friend
(d.) All of the above
but mostly c. ETA: Oh God, I almost forgot what a bitch paper-editing makes me! Please, for your own sake, never ask me to edit a paper for you, unless you want me to tear you apart. I start out all tentative and “maybe you might want to consider this?” and then quickly devolve into “This whole section makes zero sense, you’re clearly just trying to up your word count by adding in extraneous BS. And for the love of god, stop using exclamation points in an academic paper”
This is the banner for the series Angel on Netflix. It ruined the fact that Spike ends up on the series for me.
UGHHHH, Friggin Netflix, man! After all the time I’ve spent desperately trying to avoid mentioning Spike in season 5, while also trying to get you excited for season 5, Netflix goes and spoils all my hard work with one freaking banner! THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS, NETFLIX. YOU RUIN EVERYTHING.
So I got way behind on tumblr and kinda quit checking it while I was crazy busy during my last semester of college, and then I went to Disney and was working nonstop, and so I still didn’t have time for tumblr.
But now I’m back home and jobless and bored, so I was like “Well, now would be a good time for getting back into tumblr, right?” WRONG. It seems Donna Noble doesn’t agree with me.
Donna is my laptop. She’s started doing that thing again where she just turns off at random times while I’m in the middle of doing things.
Which leads me to screaming things like “FUCK YOU DONNA, YOU WHORE!”
At my computer.
At 1:30 am.
You’re just as sane as I am
ok, maybe not.
…and there goes the flyers in the recycle
Because calling me a bitch is a great way to to motivate me to advertise.
There’s a theatre in DC that’s doing it, and my friend Margo is going & invited me but its $25, and $25 seems like a lot to a poorcollegestudent, especially since its not even gonna be with Neil & Nathan & Felicia [I’d pay WAY more that $25 if it was them], but seeing things like this make me wanna just splurge & go see it SO. BAD.
Hence the dasrfgjkljhggfjghbkni sentiments.
Its 4:38 am. I just finished transcribing a 20 minute conversation (Which was 8 pages; 3,756 words), which I now have to annotate and analyze. And I have class at 11 am. And all I wanna do is sleeeeep. =/
Tonight tonight, hot damn tonight!
This is the longest I’ve ever had to go without something that gives me pleasure.
Ugh, the worst part about this snow storm, even worse than the power going out, is that I don’t get to watch the return of Vampire Diaries with my best friend, because we live on opposite sides of campus & the buses don’t run when the university is closed.
(For those who don’t know what my campus is like: I’m not just being melodramatic/lazy. Its legitimately a 30 minute walk. Not fun even in the middle of the day when the weather’s nice)
On a happier note, I really am excited to watch this tomorrow once its online!
Finals week…oh how I hate you.
I hate this feeling. Its far too dark out for it to be considered “morning” in any respect.
Especially the morning of my first [and worst] final.
Its also raining. Of course its raining.
I went to bed finally around 2 am, so in theory I got around 5 hours of sleep. In reality, however, I got far less due to the fact that my sleep schedule is so screwed up from being nearly nocturnal over the weekend. Apparently, going to bed at 5 am one night and getting up at 7 am then next doesn’t really compute.
Because of all of this, I have that weird feeling that I associate with Christmas morning, and the morning before a long vacation; I haven’t had anywhere near enough sleep, but I don’t actually feel all that tired (until the long car/plane ride, where I inevitably fall asleep, and then hate anyone who wakes me with a deep and fiery passion). I’m definitely still getting coffee though so that I don’t crash at some point during my 8-10 final. That would massively suck.
Anyways, I’m off to possibly fail Principles of Evolution. I’ll see you on the other side.
(And by “see you” I do of course mean that once I’m done I’ll be promptly coming back here for an 8 hour nap. Don’t you dare wake me)
I’m only reblogging this because of how many times it keeps popping up in my feed. I seriously hope all of you are just reblogging this just for fun, to see how many things on this list apply to you & not because you actually believe a single word of this bullshit.
I just did a quick google search to check, and I saw this posted and reposted on a million different blogs before it hit tumblr; none of which had any sort of source or documentation as to where this information came from. Not a single post on a reputable site. The whole “According to the WHO” part wasn’t even on most of those posts, which means it was probably added just for us here on tumblr.
While many of the things on this list are bad for health-wise, but they don’t actually cause brain damage.
Dear god. The stupidity of the internet never ceases to amaze me.
Most intelligent comment I read on this topic:
11.) Believing everything you read on the internet.
When I start making posts like this, I think that’s my sign that I need to go to bed, isn’t it?
