I watched Before Sunrise last night. Can I start talking to a nice guy on a train (who’s not a psycho rapist/serial killer) and hang out with him in Vienna for the evening?

That’s my study abroad dream that will never happen. Still a nice fantasy though.













this changes everything oh my god

do you understand why it trips me out that people can drive 45 minutes and be in aNOTHER COUNTRY?

I drive for 45 minutes and im like

a city over 

I live in “Italy” and took a day trip to go to “Austria” and “Germany”

 #it is literally impossible to leave texas #you will be in texas #FOREVER

Chums, that’s sweet, and all, but Australia just ate Texas for breakfast. 


If you drive for 45 minutes in Australia you aren’t a city over, you’re just 45 minutes away from the city.

If you drive for 45 minutes in Australia you may not even leave the cattle station.


If you drive for 45 minutes in Canada you may not even leave your driveway.

If I drive 45 minutes in the us I’m just at another mcdonalds

If I drive for 45 minutes in Northern Ireland I’m 10 minutes into the sea.

I can’t drive. 

I will use this post to explain tumblr

"Dad can I make a speech?"
“No George, you’re 4. Only Grandpa and Uncle David can make speeches.”
*lets George make speech anyway*
“I’m happy it’s Daddy’s birthday, I’m glad we all get to eat cake. And Daddy, if you were a little kid, I would be your friend.”
That is how touching this program is. It is well done, all of the stories are told with passion and true love, so please listen if you have a chance.


Time Slice by Richard Silver

The idea behind the “Time Sliced” Project was to photograph iconic world buildings at sunset and capture the changing light from day to night in a single image. Experimenting with a few different kinds of processes I came up with the “Sliced” idea. I decided to Slice time and light showing the progression of the day from left to right.

You tell ‘em Ruthie BG

This is why I was there. To build schools and empower children through education to get them off the streets and not involved in gang violence and trafficking.


I can see on Facebook that everyone, EVERYONE, got RA except me. Cool. This is what happens when you speak your mind in class and your teacher doesn’t agree with you. Cool. Real cool.

But at the same time, I get to live with 5 of my best friends again in a super sweet loft suite (which I flawlessly landed). So I guess that certainly has its benefits.

And financial aid decided to not be as retarded this year, which is always a plus.

And in 40 minutes, I will be on my way to one of the most dangerous countries in the world for a week of leadership building. As weird as it sounds, I could not be more excited!


July 9, 1868: The 14th Amendment is Adopted

On this day in 1868, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified.  It extended citizenship and its benefits to “all persons born or naturalized in the United States,” regardless of their race or gender, although it took nearly 100 years for this principle to be enforced.

This is why I study both political science and history. To understand how adoptions like this one occurred and how it influenced history and how those decisions affect people today. This is another reason why I ultimately would like to go into constitutional law.

As Gerald N. Rosenberg pointed out in The Hollow Hope, the Courts do not have the power to enforce the principle alone. There are a couple other cases that could be cited, like Reynolds v. SimsCraig v. BorenUnited States v. WindsorReed v. Reed and Regents of the University of California v. Bakke (if i can cite all of these, then this is clearly my calling). All branches of government need to work together to make sure people are treated equally on the basis of race and gender.
