“i have so much fucking homework” i whisper to myself while i continue scrolling down my dashboard, hating myself more and more every minute
So like a year ago I opened up to someone and showed them more of my soul than anyone has ever seen and then they run away like a three year old because they didn’t get their way and its like oh hey thanks assface glad to see the relationship was only one way.
It shouldn’t be called meet and greet it should be called pay and hey
Nah, I don’t think so. Shaming people in a marathon isn’t productive.
Way to go you 50, Fat, Diabetic, Ahead of You Dickwad.
How is he shaming? He’s listing 3 facts about himself and a statement that is necessarily true depending on his position to the reader. Nothing shaming about it.
it’s kinda like the classic idea of “privilege”
rather than admiring this man and trying to be as awesome as he is (because seriously: fighting a chronic disease, advanced in years, out of shape, and running a marathon), self-centered people start thinking “he’s making me look bad”
and their solution to that is to try to drag him down to their level, if not lower
and so he is relegated the ranking of “dickwad”
when, in actual, real life, where living, breathing people interact, a lot of people probably found this humorous, or inspiring, or were even motivated to try to pass him
like honestly, if you’re the type to shrivel up and feel bad about yourself when you see this t-shirt, you probably aren’t the type to run a marathon anyway
*prosecuting lawyer voice* i have only one question for the defendant… ‘guiltypersonsayswhat?’
haha owned you’re going to jail
serving size: bowl
Servings per box: Depends on size of bowl
two vampire friends lying on the floor getting drunk and describing eachother because they can’t use mirrors don’t even try to tell me that isn’t adorable
for the first time in my life ive found something i may like about vampires
You know what’s even more adorable
They decide to try and draw each other
And they both have the drawing skills of toddlers
OOOOOOOOOHHHH, NOOOOOOOOOOO~!!!!! <3<3<3
What if Millennials’ aversion to car-buying isn’t a temporary side effect of the recession, but part of a permanent generational shift in tastes and spending habits? It’s a question that applies not only to cars, but to several other traditional categories of big spending—most notably, housing. And its answer has large implications for the future shape of the economy—and for the speed of recovery.

It’s safe to say that a decent number of Tumblr users are a part of the Millennial generation. So, tell us: Do you own a car or house? If not, why?
IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO DISPOSABLE INCOME YOU THUNDERING IDIOTS. Fucking preference has nothing to do with it. 50% of college graduates have no job! They all have the most student loan debt ever! What are you asking this question for?!
Also: housing is a good bit more expensive now.
My parents got a 15-year mortgage on a new house in the mid-70s. The house was $32,000. Average home price in that area now? $190,000.
So, home prices went up. Food prices went up. Health care prices went WAY UP. Rent prices went up. Higher education went up so damn high that some of us forgo that all together. Energy prices went up. Car prices went up.
Prices of prices went up.
We also pay cell phone bills, internet bills, data plans, text plans, online subscriptions, cable/satellite tv, netflix, DVR subscriptions — bills that didn’t even exist 30-40 years ago. We also use computers and smartphones and microwaves and other consumer electronics that didn’t exist 20-50 years ago.
We need medications and doctors and contact lenses and tampons and maxi pads and other things that cost money just to be alive and keep us healthy.
Most of us can’t afford to:
- Get married and have a “Traditional” big wedding
- Buy a house
- Buy a new car
- PLAN to have children
- Take two, consecutive weeks of vacation.
Jobs that paid 50k in the late 1990s now pay between 30-35. Interest rates that favor consumers have gone down.
So I say, no. We are not choosing not to buy homes. We’re not choosing to take the bus in cities where there’s no good public transit. WE ARE NOT CHOOSING TO LIVE WHAT SOCIETY DEEMS AS AN UNDESIRABLE LIFESTYLE.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that these two people in the picture are young white hipsters. Young black and brown folks have been forgoing homeownership and buying new cars for decades, this shit isn’t new, pal. You’re just acting like this shit is new because it’s hitting white folks.
anyway, my point is: We are fucking broke.

"Hey. Hey, guys. I know the economy being fucked up is totally our fault, but what if we tell people the next generation…wants to be poor?”
Oh look I’m reblogging this again.
