That blurry part of life following graduation

…with the anonymity of the Internet, some people will be horrible no matter the situation.
Robin Williams’ daughter quits social media after abuse - CNN.com (via pressf1)

I am in no way comparing the level of awfulness Zelda Williams is going through to the many months I endured online bullying, but anyone who has been abused by cowardly people hiding behind a computer screen should never have to deal with that. Execs at Twitter are taking steps at preventing further cyber bullying, so that is a positive step in the right direction…

There is a very fuzzy line between first amendment rights and libelous, hate speak that people think they can dance on and the law just won’t snatch them up, only because they don’t QUITE break the law. It’s quite pathetic, and sick that their lives are spent this way.

I just hope there will be stronger advances in the very near future for many people’s sake.

TWO weeks is all that stands between me and the Emerald Isle! (Ireland) 
This photo is the wall next to my head at work. I LOVE geography and we have been reading up on Ireland for a few months now. (and those are pin wheels in a vase. The usual.)
This has been determined to be a post grad perk! I am spending nine days in Ireland with two friends and a cousin, and we leave in TWO WEEKS!

You don’t have to be pretty. you don’t owe prettiness to any one. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay of occupying a space marked “female”.
