A coffee pot can be a coffee mug if you just don’t fucking care
On December 6th, 1989, shortly before five ‘o’ clock and the end of classes before Christmas break, fourteen female engineering students were shot and killed at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec by a gunman who claimed he was “fighting feminism”.
The massacre stands as one of the most tragic hate crimes in Canadian history.

I had to make a small decision that felt enormous today.
Earlier this week I got invited to go to Washington for a business competition in February (Yay!), except it means that I miss 4 days of school. It’s an excellent opportunity though, so I jumped on it.
However, one of my teammates suggested that we go to New York for 2 days after just as tourists. Everyone except me was totally on board.
My biggest hesitation comes from the fact that I will be missing more than a week of school if I decide to join them. It’s especially difficult when I think about the heavy course load I’m taking, and the knowledge that I will be doing 0 work while I’m there.
I’ve always had issues saying no to people, and in general have this gnawing feeling that they are going to hate me if I don’t do what they want. I know it’s irrational, but it’s one of the many internalized beliefs I’ve been working hard to overcome.
After wasting almost an entire day fretting over how I’m going to tell these complete strangers that I need to put myself first I sat down, turned to my old friends Wave, and wrote a sincere and heartfelt apology. I still have a lot of anxiety over the situation, but it feels good to have my opinion out there rather than holding it in and letting it slowly eat away my conscience.
My mom sent this.

YOU KEEP PORN ON YOUR COMPUTER??? WHAT YEAR IS THIS?
WELL THE KOREAN GOVERNMENT BLOCKS ALL THE PORN WEBSITES SO WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?????
I am always weirded out by governments that block porn. Because that means that they have at least one full time position where the job description is basically just to look at things and decide what should and shouldn’t be censored. They basically get PAID to watch porn.
What really gets me though, is what does that job description say? Further, what qualifies one to be a porn critic?
