just because john and jade handle tragedy differently from rose and dave, it doesn’t mean that they’re any less tragic oh my fucking god
better at hiding their problems =/= better at coping
None of them are emotionally mature enough to handle the levels of stress the game inflicted upon them. They’re all 13/14 fucking years old.
Jade does not just “get mad”. John does not just have “self-esteem issues”.
Most of John’s confidence is just a front, and he avoids tragedy like it’s the plague and none of that is 100% healthy. Jade is pushing herself beyond her limits because of her gifts and the expectations others gave her. Please stop acting like they’re more well-adjusted than Dave and Rose. THEY’RE NOT.
Welcome to “How not to make yourself look like a moron by pretending to be educated and superior when your attitude is actually embarrassing and frankly fucking stupid” - the musical.
look @ this sentense. now look @ youre self. now look back @ this sentense.
If you were tempted to at any point circle mistakes made and reply “*your :)” etc, like it means you have 1billion more IQ points than me - this post applies to you.
Now it seems that being a “grammar nazi” is considered sort of “cool” by certain people on the internet I would deem “nerds” or even “twats”. Ever since the early days of the internet, the world wide web has been swarmed with people CORRECTING SPELLING AND GRAMMAR for NO RAISIN. Whether this is to assert superiority or dominance, do the whole “grammar lol so nerdy!!” thing or just because a person is really so petty, the internet and tumblr in particular seems to be fucking swarming with people declaring someone’s manner of typing or speaking WRONG!!! or RETARDED!!
And to those people I would say “congratulations, you are an idiot.”
Here’s a shocker, THERE’S NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY TO SPEAK ENGLISH.
Grammar is pretty much 100% bullshit. It was invented by some crazy fucking english guys in the 18th century, who were crying about the way commoners were desecrating the precious english language boohoohoo. Now, while it is important to standardise a language to a degree, so we can understand each other, these prescriptive grammarians actually made an attempt to “fix” the language, as in “to preserve” it, exactly as it was.
Now, you may be 14 years old and blogging about how “GOD EVERYONE’S GRAMMAR IS IN THE TOILET YOU’RE RUINING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN PEOPLE SPOKE ALL PROPER LIKE WHAT I DO BEFORE LOLIPOPS TURNED INTO CIGARETTES” and you would be 1) wrong, 2) awful.
A language needs to be allowed to evolve and flourish in order to live on and develop. Languages that don’t change die. Look at latin - a dead tongue considered a paragon of perfection by some for it’s status as a dead language. It’s unsullied. It’s unsulliable. IT’S A FUCKING DEAD LANGUAGE THAT ABOUT 70 CRUSTY OXFORD LECTURERS SPEAK BECAUSE IT CAN’T CHANGE. While you may be outraged by your peer’s use of slang, you’d be WRONG because slang is creative and allows a person to have flare and a personal touch to the way they speak. Slang makes a language a dialect, a dialect a sociolect and a sociolect and idiolect. Which is lovely.
A word can basically mean whatever you want it to mean, and it’s fun to be creative with the way we use our words! And it doesn’t pissing well matter how you spell them, especially in the context of a fucking personal blog.
While standardised spelling is needed to make things easier to read, if you’re addressing a peer group who know what you’re going on about regardless of how many number/letter homophones you use, then who gives a shit? All that matters at the end of the day is that you’re understood. And whether someone understands you or not often has little to do with your bomb ass spelling, and more to do with the way you use your words, no matter how hideously misspelled they may be.
welcome to descriptive linguistics you faAT NASTI TRANSH
My little brother got into outer space and stuff so my step-mom bought him a place mat with all the planets on it. When I first saw it, I was upset, because it was newer and so Pluto wasn’t labeled. I was about to say something when I noticed something…
Me and my boyfriend have been seeing each other for about a year now and I recently found out I’m pregnant..
It was the scariest thing of my life.. I was paralyzed with fear. I wish I had the means to keep the baby but I just don’t.. We aren’t ready to be parents and adoption would mean my abusive dad finding out. I fear for both my life and my boyfriends if this were to happen.
So we decided together the only option is to abort the pregnancy. I’m so scared and lost. I have cried for nights about this, don’t think I’m heartless.
Please understand, and help me. The link is on my tumblr. I just don’t have the money.. The abortion will be $500.. There is no funding in my state thanks to Scott walker.
Donate $1 and help me out, I will forever be in gratitude. I love you all.
i dont care what your fucking views are on abortion, if you are going to shame this girl i hope you burn to a nice, even crisp in hell.
