Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”

Thoughts on Pretty Little Liars

emily is unbelievably annoying. if she doesn’t stop blindly following alison and being a bad friend i might scream.

i feel bad for alison, but she’s got to stop lying to her friends, even as a coping mechanism.

please, for the love of god, someone help hannah. she’s clearly going through a hard time. she’s been a good friend through emily coming out, aria’s affair with a teacher, and spencer’s pill addiction. stop victim blaming, and start being there for her.

caleb is making it very hard for me to enjoy haleb moments. i don’t want to hate him, but i’m starting to.

aria needs a slap in the face. she’s the pot calling the kettle black on bad decisions.

basically, i feel like they’re ruining characters and changing personalities to create interesting story lines this season. i’m not okay with it.

Thoughts on how to use my music degree out in the real world. I’m heavily leaning towards elementary school music teaching, or getting Kindermusik certified.

“The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.”

I'm smart


Well you're probably ugly then


I'm creative


You mean unattractive right?


I have all these incredible accomplishments


Yeah but look how ugly you looked doing them


I have value


Not if you're ugly lol


I'm conventionally-attractive & posted selfies on my blog


I'm so sick of these empty-headed chicks only caring about their looks. Just because you are attractive and get attention from men doesn't mean you are special or deserve respect. Why don't you read a book or do something productive with your life you dumb slut


"oh my god stop criticizing young girls who like 50 Shades of Gray or Twilight you can’t tell them what they can and can’t read"

no we can’t but we have to protect young girls from mistaking abusive behavior for genuine affection at all costs

I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store. 

I think about this all the time
