The text from SoundCloud: “This one is also off CYNEs Starship Utopia. I was invited to do a show up in Gainesville, Fl where the crew Cyne lived for a while. It was Soarse Spoken, Stress, DJ Manuvers and my self. We did our thing and after the gig we had the next few days off. We started vibing to some of Enochs beats and it was a sealed deal. We all jumped on the mic and the rest is historia. It feels great when something is created from good vibes.”
“The part-timers are often considered “invisible faculty,” because they rarely participate in academic life and typically bolt from campus the moment class ends. That researchers still know little about them — or how well they do their jobs — is especially startling given that a little more than half of all college faculty members are now part-timers, and they far outnumber full-time faculty members on most community college campuses.”—The College Faculty Crisis - NYTimes.com (via infoneer-pulse)
“The nicest people I’ve ever met were covered in tattoos and piercings and the most judgemental people I’ve ever met are the ones that go to church every Sunday.”—Autor Desconhecido (via barney-barrett)
“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”—― John Green (via psych-quotes)
"Their mouths, which mere minutes before had been employed in the process of demolishing and ingesting various foodstuffs, were now jammed up damply against one another while still being used for breathing, which must have been more than a little uncomfortable."
"Bits of one jammed into bits of the other, dangerously close to some of the weakest and most important internal organs."
"With absolutely no regard for personal space, the two of them created an unnecessary amount of friction, generating sweat in the process."
“The audience actually wants to work for their meal. They just don’t want to know that they’re doing that. That’s your job as a storyteller is to hide the fact that you’re making them work for their meal. We’re born problem solvers. We’re compelled to deduce and to deduct because that’s what we do in real life. It’s this well-organized absence of information that draws us in.”—
Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton in an altogether fantastic episode of NPR’s TED Radio Hour exploring what makes a great story.
Significant problem with identifying as having fluid sexuality:
When my guy friend repeatedly won’t take “no” for an answer because of the argument that I’m supposed to “go for anyone.” (But I also encounter this kind of frustration from girls when I say no, and it’s not okay no matter who it’s coming from) Apparently, from what I take away from hearing this, I’m supposed to have no ability of choice and just appeal to base instincts of hooking up with anyone I can. And forget romance, yeah? Man. Just further proof of how less visible identities need to be brought to the forefront and really talked about so people have some basic sensitivity training and, I don’t know, maybe the most low-level sense of social etiquette
Of all the playlists I’m trying to build, I think this one may be my current favorite. Shameless plug: I’m “thinkzink” on SoundCloud if you ever wonder what the soundtrack to my Econ textbook or CS lab is.
I’ve asked my brother for a Sigma Chi shirt from his SMU fraternity for my birthday. Cheap on his part, immensely appreciated on mine. If I can’t join a fraternity (I got the official “no” on Friday in terms of being allowed to go through the process, and got — well, HAVE been — very, very emotional over it), I’m gonna bring the frat to me, yo
