Is it common practice to ask people who’ve drunkenly assaulted young women to host prospective students? Or am I just behind the times? Fuck this institution. Fuck it all to hell.

A Commendation to Bill
“Well done, you’re a star. You didn’t wet yourself, did you? You’re in the right city. You didn’t say anything overtly racist. You didn’t pull your cock out and start plucking it and shouting “Willy Banjo”. No, I’m being really unfair. You’d got so much right, without actually being there in the beginning of one of the most important...
It's really disappointing to be right sometimes
Like when you’re correct in thinking that people you’ve at least awkwardly attempted to communicate with and get to know in fact find your presence as unwelcome and uncomfortable as you feel around them. It’s especially great when the only other human you have ready contact with is your significant other, whom you’re living with, whom said people know and like. Meaning,...
Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only one who notices how intrinsically and pervasively fucked up our culture is. And how fucking dumb it is that we have a superiority complex about the wonderful Western world we live in.

Last night, I had the mother of all existential...
Zoe and I crashed out after an episode of House around 7.30 and stayed in bed up til we had to go to work this morning. I awoke between 11.30 and midnight from a dream that’s still bothering me, despite my now having virtually no energy after work. I dreamt a realization- the realization that none of what has happened to me in the last year or so was real. I dreamt that upon my leave of...
On this auspicious day...
…Zoe and I have been dating for six months. Now hold up. I know what you’re thinking. “Who is this 14 year old blogtard and why does he think we care about his petty excuse for a relationship landmark?” “Who celebrates an anniversary before a full year is past? That’s what the word anniversary mean, annual!” “Why does he feel the need to hawk...
None of the sleep was belong to me last night. Oh well. Gonna enjoy the shit out of this Philosophy of Religion exam. Woop woop. That’s the sound of the police.
I think it’s indicative of a problematic relationship when waiting for any kind of reply from my parents 3,000 miles away feels like I’m awaiting either an affirmation or a stay of my own execution.
Fuck you body
Making me violently ill during finals is the poorest choice. Also, we never ask Ben for help again. He just hits us in the balls with bottles.
“Why are physicists bad at sex?” “Because when they find the right position, they can’t find the right momentum and when they find the right momentum they can’t find the right position.” Yes. This is a 200-level college class.

They are small and pink and entirely too tight. I feel better about myself.
It is the most wonderful feeling to know that you are superfluous. Applying for an internship, getting down to being one of the final two candidates then being the only of these that bothers to show up for interview should generally mean that you’re at least going to be offered the job, correct? Nope. After being kept on the hook, I get a call at 8 this morning letting me know that...

Bruce Willis sponsors Sobieski vodka. If this message needs any further clarification, let it be the following orders: a) get your wallet b) get thee to a liquor store and c) become Bruce Willis with the aid of alcohol
So today I learn a coworker accused me
of “exploiting my position” to “benefit myself and my band financially…at the expense of other groups” involved in our festival. Accused me of this to coworkers and to other, random people outside of work. Never brought it to my attention. Would’ve never known unless my boss defended my band’s paycheck at a meeting today, and a friend later informed me...
Sometimes I close my eyes and wish that when I open them you’ll all have disappeared. I wish that all but a select few of you will have vanished, leaving me and the dwindling amount of people I trust and care about wandering around some kind of John-Wyndham-esque deserted landscape (minus the triffids of course). Somedays I feel like you are all the source of my problems, that I am the...

I am having a week where I am done attempting to reason with people who have a vague conception of basic-to-complex ideas, thoughts, objects, actions and ideologies and then proceed to act/speak on their vague conception, twisting it and looking like fucking idiots in the process. Example below. socialismartnature: What the fuck, people! Why do some people — generally associated with anarchist...
I’m in the middle of class for fuck’s sake. This is not a good time for this shit.
I can’t tell if being in physical pain is what’s negatively affecting my mood, or if I should be getting as worried about relapse as I am. I don’t want to be an albatross around your neck.

This kind of shit (on top of the average amount of misogny, unnecessary machismo, funds wasted on cheap beer and advantage taken of young inebriated women) is exactly why I don’t understand why being in a fraternity for some odd fucking reason is regarded as a POSITIVE thing to have on your CV in the wonderful United States. socialismartnature: This country is so fucked up.

Just because an argument takes place on the internet doesn’t instantly make it irrelevant or “silly”. Especially if you pull out the “silly internet argument” card when your own idiotic, malinformed point of view is the one that is lagging. If you are going to make a statement, stand behind it and be prepared to defend it. If you are going to whine and bitch at the...
