are you kidding me???
OHHH MYYY GOOOODDDDDDD?!
HOLY SHIT I WANT THESE. FUUUUUUCK.
Look at how happy Heart-Ripping-Out-Of-Your-Chest dude is!
I need these in my life…..
My dad doesn’t want to come eat dinner because he wants to “lay in bed and be depressed.”
I’m getting aggravated with him. His foot needs to me cleaned and bandaged to avoid infection and he’s refusing to let me do it. Several times today all he says he wants to do is lay in bed and be depressed. He refuses to talk about it. More than likely he’s pitching some sort of fit over something stupid.
I really hate this consolidation bullshit. After my exam I have to fight with the library over a book I turned in on time they they claim I haven’t turn in and place a hold on my account and are threatening to not only cancel my registration, but threatening my Financial Aid status by making it so I won’t receive it.
It’s messed up when college treats it’s students in this manner. Here we are struggling to get a degree, having to take on crippling debt only to finally graduate and many students having to work minimum wage jobs because they can’t get any other jobs right now. It’s going to be a very bad thing when the student loan bubble bursts like the housing market did. Very bad.
I’m sure there are other countries who are truly confused over how higher education is handled in this country. It’s damn near a privilege to get it and if you aren’t well off, you have to sell yourself to be able to get what should be, in my opinion, a right for every person. Everyone should be able to access education, from primary on up to higher education.

I got a temporary promotion at work today. I’m glad for the extra hours especially around the holidays, but I’m not sure I would want to keep the position if offered it permanently. Yeah I get a raise with it, but I’m also in school. I just don’t think that working 30 hours a week will work out with me trying to go to school at the same time. It’s okay for now, since school ends on Tuesday…
In other news, the doctors now believe that I have Fibromyalgia. But they want me to see a psychiatrist first to determine if I’m depressed. I think it’s a load of crock that they refuse to consider a diagnosis unless you are depressed (like cry your eyes out every day and suicidal thoughts depressed). They don’t want to “write off” my pain as being depressed. I flat out told the doctor that when this pain started three years ago I was certainly not depressed and my pain was not caused by any depression.
So in other worlds, they still have no fucking clue what is causing my pain. All they say is that someone my age shouldn’t be having this kind of pain.
Furisode, Late Edo period (1789–1868), 19th century, Japan
Silk, 4:1 satin damask weave (rinzu); embroidered with silk and gold-leaf-over-lacquered-paper-strip-wrapped silk in satin stitches; laid work and couching, and padded couching; lined with silk, plain weave
183.8 x 128.8 cm (72 1/4 x 50 3/4 in.)
Gift of Gaylord Donnelley in memory of Frances Gaylord Smith, 1991.637. Art Institute of Chicago
This furisode, a long-sleeved garment worn by children and unmarried women on special occasions, belonged to a family whose crest was the tachibana, the flower of the Mandarin orange. Made of rinzu (a soft, luxurious silk), it was probably used as an uchikake, an outer coat worn without an obi, which would have interrupted the flow of the patterning. A blossoming plum tree embroidered with gold and white silk thread spreads its branches from hem to shoulder. The red fabric is woven in a sagayata pattern of key-fret lozenges, over which individual orchids or chrysanthemums are scattered. The carefully delineated picture of a tree shows the influence of Western art on Japanese design. Needlework typical of this period was used to realistically portray the contours of the tree trunk. First the edges of the trunk were padded with a heavy thread; then, over this padding, gold-wrapped thread was couched with red silk thread.
