I am feeling all sorts of bitter and sad, which was just what I needed when depressed anyway. I’ve been trying to get into the habit of working out instead of engaging in other self destructive habits but it isn’t making me feel any better.
So I’m already breaking my own rules about not dating anymore to go out with the cutest girl ever and then another one feels the need to promptly start hitting on me through Facebook, despite knowing this. Lesbians, man. They give me anxiety. I’m going back to bed.
need to go buy a retainer for my lip ring and make sure my decent interview clothes still fit because my weight’s been fluctuating up and down by 5-10 pounds the last couple of months
also need to figure out how to not have an anxiety attack before then
woo being a grown up
My phone sucks butts and sent a call about my application to Walgreen’s straight to voicemail without telling me I’d even gotten it. Thanks for trying to sabotage me, phone.
Probably best though since I’m sick and have absolutely no voice and this way I can just wait and call them back in the morning when I don’t sound like shit.

Purple: 10 Facts about my room.
1. I don’t have any posters on the walls anymore.
2. My headboard is a bookcase, which is filled to the point where it frequently overflows onto my mattress, and has books stacked on top of it as well.
3. My bed takes up 85% of the space in my room and I love it
4. I have a rocking chair. It’s pretty great. Makes me feel all mature to read in it while rocking back and forth.
5. Everything is covered in dog hair, pretty much, no matter how often I clean.
6. I have a ridiculous amount of pairs of heels piled up everywhere.
7. My clothes are always all over the floor and bed and desk and chair because cleaning is for loooosers.
8. My dresser is also built into the bedframe. My bedframe is p. great.
9. My door doesn’t lock because it was designed to be an office, and I live right next to the kitchen so I have no privacy at all.
10. There are vibrators hidden in my desk drawers.
Gray: 2 facts about my favorite things
1. Girls. Girls are my number one favorite thing because they are awesomesexybadass and they deserve so much more love and credit than they get.
2. I really like hiking, too. I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas so within an hour or two I can be in some of the most gorgeous high country around with no cell signal, ignoring that anyone but me & my dog exist.
Fucking Pride Days stressing me out. I’m hardly even doing anything but, horrifically enough, writing my tiny tiny five-minute-or-less speech for the Peer Advocate presentation on our experiences with mental health + the lgbt community is making my anxiety WORSE.
Because of course I left it to the last minute.

“Gender Bias in College Admissions Tests”, FairTest.org
And then people urge me everything is fine, of course it is, when you’re ignoring statistics that is.
Fun fact: SAT tests predict college performance pretty well for men, but they strongly underpredict college performance for women. http://spp.sagepub.com/content/early/2012/12/20/1948550612469038.abstract
I think I’ve reblogged this before, but that study needs to be shared.
And colleges lower the qualifications for admission for men as well if they dont deliberately favor men over women in admissions in an effort to “balance the scales”.
I say this over and over again: men, if colleges weren’t PRACTICING A FORM OF PREFERENTIAL ADMISSION IN ORDER TO GET “BALANCED” CAMPUSES, you would not be getting in as much. So shut up about affirmative action.
Also, standardized tests don’t just disadvantage women - they also tend to highly disadvantage POC and other marginalized groups. My mother once fought really hard to get a PhD candidate with shitty GRE scores admitted to her program, because she knew that GREs tend to disadvantage black people. The candidate got in, got her PhD, and is now teaching at an Ivy League School.
