“If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.”

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

I will always reblog this quote.  Hits way too close to home for me.

The most salient part of this, to me, is the underscoring of the fact that there is no “right” college major where you’re guaranteed a job forever. Conservatives love to pretend college graduates working minimum-wage or freelance jobs just didn’t “pick the right major” - those foolish fools studied the arts or literature or something else frivolous, so they deserve crushing debt and no job security! No. There is no magical college major that will let you sidestep the jobless recovery.

i couldn’t word it any better 

lawl, raising a hand in class, yeah right.

Your heart stopping when someone calls attention to you and you haven’t prepared a response ahead of time and your mind goes blank as eyes land on you and after you blurt something out or stand in silence awkwardly or whatever, then you spend the next hour/day/week thinking over how everyone probably thinks your awkward/weird/wrong/stupid.

do you ever sit there and wonder what life must be like for people without anxiety

like they just

DO THINGS

without worrying about them first

wow

Anxiety is an excuse

I hope you walk barefoot on a world of legos for the rest of your life

The first time Tony Stark had an anxiety attack he thought he had been poisoned.

think about that

My part I of a two part series on Pope Francis and why I think he rocks!  There has been a backlash against religiosity lately with all that is going on in the world and folks like him definitely help restore your faith!

I’m agnostic bordering on atheist and this man warms my heart. He is what we should all strive to be.

Agnostic yet going down the list i’m liking this pope more and more.

The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

condwiramurs:

Loki’s trick might very well be the only reason Thor survived his return to Asgard. Real Odin was ordering his soldiers to shoot him down. Do we really think real Odin was going to just nicely forgive Thor for disobeying him to his face, breaking his pet jotun out of his cage, and stealing one of the most advanced superweapons in the universe, all in order to show Odin up as a bad leader who can’t even defend his own realm properly?

He was banished just for insulting the old man a movie and a half ago, and now he’s conclusively proved to Odin that he’s no longer entirely the obedient drone he’d been programmed to be. He’ll team up with Loki rather than obey his father once he remembers to think on his own.

I mean, sure, Thor may have thought daddy will make everything ok again, but that doesn’t mean Thor’s right. He’s still learning how this critical thinking thing works, after all.

[And now I want fanfic where Loki really did die or is doing his own thing somewhere else in some way, real Odin is still running Asgard, and when Thor comes back for his little chat Odin is the same unforgiving, unthinking egotistical asshole he’s just been shown to be and is like ‘nope, son, you burned that bridge,’ and has him executed for treason. Just to have some goddamn consistency with the characters for once.]

gay marriage is legal in the sims god damn it real world sort your shit out

lets talk about sims for a minute

in sims, your appearance doesn’t matter. you can pursue what career you want and not get paid less for being a certain gender. you can change your sim’s gender or life at any time. what other sims care about is if you’re nice or if you kick over their gnome.

just saying

also men in sims 2 can get pregnant by aliens
