The problem with any ideology is it gives you the answer before you look at the evidence.
And the problem with this quote is most people who read it will immediately think of how it applies to everyone BUT themselves.
Or more accurately, that’s the problem with tumblr.
today my newspaper teacher gave me her old copy of fellowship of the ring and signed it “to tess j little” it actually meant so much and was on of the best gifts to receive. I don’t know how to thank the very few great teachers I’ve had this year.
She’s the same teacher who got me to read As I Lay Dying, my favorite book of all time. J Little will always be special to me, too.
Have a history teacher explain this if they can.

Newsweek, December 30, 1985: “The Video Generation.” There they are, those preening narcissists who have to document every banal moment with their cutting-edge communications technology.
but this part though:
Sometimes you get the sense that these magazines’ cultural writers have very little experience with the entire American culture, and prefer to make their grand analyses based on what people they know in the gentrified parts of cities like New York and Los Angeles were talking about at brunch last weekend. The type of young person that magazine writers come across most frequently are magazine interns. Because the media industry is high-status, but, at least early on, very low pay in a very expensive city, it attracts a lot of rich kids. Entitled, arrogant, spoiled, preening — those are the alleged signature traits of Millennials, as diagnosed by countless magazine writers. Those traits curiously align perfectly with the signature traits of a rich kid. Have you seen your intern on Rich Kids of Instagram? If so, he or she is probably not the best guide to crafting the composite personality of a generation that fought three wars for you.

Anonymous asked: Could you tell us the story of your first kiss?
Yeah sure. It’s kind of sad.
I was in a dying relationship where I knew we were going to end soon for reasons we both saw coming so in an effort to either save it or have something special that I always wanted to take away from it, I decided to kiss this girl.
I invited her over to my house and I took her up to the tallest point in the backwoods, on top of a grassy hill that overlooked all of the houses, and I laid her in the grass and kissed her. We made out as the sun was behind us and to the sounds of mechanical construction. It was a nice moment and it stays with me a lot of the time. I like thinking about it whenever I’m in the mood to think about my exes.
The relationship ended a few weeks after that. I found out quite later it was for reasons I could never hope to control. But that girl was special to me, and I’m glad she was my first kiss, even if we’ve completely lost touch and I’ll probably never see her again.
