Go to Sleep in Peace...

God is Awake

“You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line I have ever read, since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since-on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with.”

“I just sit down and write, and I don’t think. And the characters just do it. Sometimes they won’t, and that’s a bad day… . I assume if I keep myself open and don’t take myself too seriously, they’ll keep talking. I live for those unexpected moments. I don’t really know when they will come out — I just know what I want to say… . Control so you can lose control — that’s what writing is. Disciplined control. If you can sustain that for ten pages, you’re lucky.”

This is so great. Looking back on my college days, I can identify my once classmates as a specific number. Personally, I think I would’ve been cast as (5) The aspiring novelist who is always carrying around a notebook, (16) The feminist who worships dark, female poets, and (17) Usually the same person who is always trying to dismantle the literary patriarchy.

just a friendly reminder that for over a hundred years, pit bulls used to be referred to as “the nanny dog” and their main job was as babysitters.

  • in temperance tests (the equivalent of how many times your kid can poke your dog in the eye before it bites him) of all breeds the most tolerant was the golden retriever. the second most tolerant was the pit bull. temperament evaluations by the american temperament test society give american pit bull terriers a very high passing rate of 82.6%, while the average passing rate for the other 121 dog breeds tested was only 77%.
  • pit bulls are not naturally human aggressive. in fact pit bull puppies prefer human company to their mother’s two weeks before all other dogs.
  • no spayed/neutered, indoor pit bull has ever killed a person.
  • contrary to the popular myth, pit bulls DO NOT have locking jaws.
  • approximately 6000 pit bulls are put to death every day, by far the highest number of any breed euthanized.

This message is so important.

Everyone should read this.

“When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. The world teaches you that the way you exist in it is disgusting — you watch boys cringe backward in your dorm room when you talk about your period, blue water pretending to be blood in a maxi pad commercial. It is little things, and it is constant. In a food court in a mall, after you go to the gynecologist for the first time, you and your friend talk about how much it hurts, and over her shoulder you watch two boys your age turn to look at you and wrinkle their noses: the reality of your life is impolite to talk about. The world says that you don’t have a right to the space you occupy, any place with men in it is not yours, you and your body exist only as far as what men want to do with it. At fifteen, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. At almost thirty, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met still somehow believe you should bend your body to their will.”
