I'm a 20-something feminist who prefers to be called Nic. I reside in Greater London where I study sociology. I'm a queer INTP type who has a slightly too obvious obsession with A Song of Ice and Fire, Lord of the Rings, and American Horror Story. I read things, and game things, as people do. My blog is just a random jumble of cats, obsessions, my whinging, and politics.
I told this girl I would go to her birthday party tonight and I’m still not sure I wanna go :/ Cause like I don’t even know her well and there’ll be a couple people I know there but it just seems like effort and I’ve been losing a lot of sleep lately.
At the same time I know if I don’t go I’ll probably be bored and lonely at home.
Like neither of the options seem like good options.
Although the quote is fantastic and Kelley is fantastic (I should know, I work with her), Kelley is not the originator of the quote (and she’s said the same thing). She paraphrased something a speaker said at an event, which was actually paraphrased from soultired’s Tumblr. And the person who originally said it was pretty annoyed that the quote is now passed off as Kelley’s, though Kelley never realised this until people pointed out to her and when it was pointed out that Kelley was sounding like the creator of the quote, she quickly corrected them and explained. Seriously it’s a good quote but it’s a misquote, though I guess it makes sense to attribute it to her since she’s the NUS Women’s Officer and has a lot of influence in the UK.
But yeah my 2 cents. I just remember the hoopla about this but I still see this as attributed to her at least once a week and it’s like, soultired was annoyed at it the first time, think about how they must feel constantly seeing it.
Virtual supermarkets are popping up in subway stations in South Korea, where commuters can virtually shop for items while waiting for the train to come. Customers simply scan an item’s QR code using the free “Homeplus” app and can have it delivered to their doorstep before they even get home. Ranked as the 2nd most hard-working country in the world to Japan, South Korea is rewarding its workers with this timesaving gem.
Wow! I kinda love this idea.
THE FUTURE IS NOW
I think this has been around for a while, or at least the idea’s been around for a while. Either way I want to try this out so badly or like Tesco should do it.
I make a pasta sauce that I literally just improv every time I make it, just throw shit in it in random amounts (okay not random amounts, but it’s not written down), and I love those times where I make it perfectly just the perfect balance of everything and has a nice spicy kick to it :)
A grilled flat mushroom and some shaved pecorino romano on top and I’m a happy camper.
