a couple months ago after applying for secretary of uf’s wsa [women’s student association] i found out that i would be accepted onto e-board as vice-president. a couple days ago i got a call from peaceful paths [a non-profit focused on domestic violence prevention] offering me an internship for fall 2013 to help teach school-age youth the importance/meaning of healthy relationships. and this morning i got an e-mail confirming my acceptance as a blogger for uf’s hercampus team…so i must be doing something right..
i’m so incredibly grateful for the opportunities uf has offered but i’m also incredibly proud of myself for being able to achieve so much by the end of my freshman year…i never expected to be so involved and i just hope i don’t overwhelm myself these next couple semesters. i’m so excited and happy ugh college is great and to be able to get so involved and meet so many people and make such an impact makes everything so worth it.
there’s so many things i want to do and i’m gonna do them because why else am i in college—i have so many opportunities presented to me i’d be such an asshat to just reject so many life experiences. next year i’m going to be busy but i’m going to be busy doing things that i love and hopefully creating the impact i want to see in the world.
lovin’ life. rant over
just spent like half an hour looking through themes and i chose the most boring one. i need to know how to code things i was better at this in my myspace times

i don’t get why you would want to be an asshole every time you want to be politically correct or inclusive. you should be able to correct somebody and educate them without being a complete jerk about it—it’s super important to be able to teach everyone to be culturally sensitive and informed but making them feel stupid is probably not going to make them want to take what you’re saying seriously and resent you and your opinion
a lot of people straight up don’t know why they’re being an asshole and were raised with shitty values and that’s not their fault…just make your point and try to be positive about it
I get not fetishizing other cultures—[on a related note my friend once told me that he knew someone who wanted to be so politically correct that they wanted to sleep with someone of every race which uh you’re dumb you’re doing “politically correct” wrong and you’re objectifying those people for their race/culture]—but can’t people like simply have preferences and that just be okay? like rather than assuming that someone thinks all other complexions or skin colors are inferior to the one they prefer, why can’t they just be attracted to that and that be okay? just so long as you’re not objectifying that person or are being racist about it which i don’t think it is then you’re in the clear
this one girl i had never met before randomly came up to me and told me that i looked exactly like the girl from lovetaza.com and it’s like eerily accurate and that makes me happy
also someone else told me that me & my boyfriend reminded them of jim and pam from the office…i also really liked that
actors that should shouldn’t be allowed because they’re just too dang sexy include:

Nicki Minaj casually dismantles sexism while applying her eyeliner
This was, legitimately, my very first impression of Nicki Minaj. And this is the reason why, to this day, I have the utmost respect for her, even though I don’t like all of her music.
