I think this is the most relevant thing I’ve seen on Tumblr

They should require that these are put up inside schools. It’s the least they could do as a reminder, because this is sure as hell not taught in the classrooms.

Maybe it’s because none of these would help you get a job in the future?

I’m pretty sure leadership, resourcefulness, reliability, motivation, self discipline would be really good for getting a job

Can we just appreciate Ben Schwatz, guys?!

So many people will not be able to see your potential … (x)

Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”

Me. Most days.

Me. Most days.

every experience that I have with love makes me rethink what I thought it was to love and I’m beginning to figure that no one, ever ever ever, is going to be able to say for certain what it really is and how it feels and that’s probably a good thing

Just a reminder

wait…that’s…real?

Yep. A real thing. And one of their reasons was, essentially, because they don’t want employers -not- hiring women because they fear lawsuits from not paying them fair wages.
Can’t make that up.

And yet they claim to be the party that has “America’s best interest at heart.”

Here, let me fix that slogan.  “Republicans: we have the world’s corporation’s best interest at heart.”

Things…

I get really fired up/passionate when I watch things on immigration. My sister in law (who is a Russian refugee herself to Germany) and I had a long deep discussion about it. Don’t get me started I won’t stop.

The Science of Sushi

Ole Mouritsen on the history of sushi

“The history of sushi is really the history of preservation of food… . Throughout Asia, in particular in China and later in Japan, people discovered that you can ferment fish – that is, you can preserve fish – by taking fresh fish and putting it in layers of cooked rice… . After some time the fish changes texture, it changes taste, it changes odor, but it’s still edible and it’s nutritious. And maybe after half a year you could then pull out the fish and eat the fish. That is the original sushi.”

Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t.

today, my school hosted an exhibit for suicide awareness day. the exhibit included 1,100 backpacks in representation of the number of lives that are lost to mental illness each year on college campuses. many of these backpacks were donated by the families that lost loved ones and had their stories attached. i’m so proud of my school for bringing attention to such a serious issue.

this matters so much.
