My cousins found quince jam for me. They searched far and wide. The results are delicious. Their valor, patience, and fortitude are to be commended.

I am immeasurably thankful that I’m done with school, undergrad, grad school. That this is the second September that I don’t have to go back. That I never have to go back again. That I get to learn on my own terms, now. Good riddance.

Don’t get too high and mighty, ladies. Don’t step out of line. Don’t do anything to upset or disappoint men who feel entitled to your time, bodies, affection or attention. Your bared body can always be used as a weapon against you. You bared body can always be used to shame and humiliate you. Your bared body is at once desired and loathed.

This is what we must remember. Women cannot be sexual in certain ways without consequence. Women cannot pose nude or provocatively, whether for a lover or themselves, without consequence. We are never allowed to forget how the rules are different girls. I suppose we should be grateful for this latest reminder.
The Delaware River is, in fact, still running in the right direction. We checked.

The plan is as follows: we shall take the chariot, journey to the home of mine mother, take with us Elizabeth, travel forth to the Winchester, drink deeply of its brews, and patiently await for this storm of misfortunes to pass us by.

Take the car, go to Mum’s, kill Phil, grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all this to blow over. - Shaun, Shaun of the Dead

Hello. I was reading Coraline again and something hit me: are Miss Spink and Miss Forcible a couple? Thanks, have a nice week :)

neil-gaiman:

Absolutely.

Best thing to wake up to in tumblr.

The first people a dictator puts in jail after a coup are the writers, the teachers, the librarians — because these people are dangerous. They have enough vocabulary to recognize injustice and to speak out loudly about it. Let us have the courage to go on being dangerous people.
You don’t necessarily have to do anything once you acknowledge your privilege. You don’t have to apologize for it. You need to understand the extent of your privilege, the consequences of your privilege, and remain aware that people who are different from you move through and experience the world in ways you might never know anything about. They might endure situations you can never know anything about. You could, however, use that privilege for the greater good—to try to level the playing field for everyone, to work for social justice, to bring attention to how those without certain privileges are disenfranchised. We’re seen what the hoarding of privilege has done, and the results are shameful.

Big shoutout to transformativetidbits for the question today! We’re all at different stages and have different goals in mind, so feel free to tweak the question to fit you.

Who/what/where/when/why did you decide to go to library school, or…

Fun fact: Kt and I started our MLIS degrees on the same day, though I was at Rutgers and she was at UMD. We spent the night before freaking out about what to wear and the fact that neither of us had working parking passes.
