Welp, called University of Texas at Arlington to see what could be done about applying there. I’ve missed the scholarship deadline and there is nothing they’re willing to do about it at this time. Their focus is the students who have been dropped halfway through their education who need help the most. I was just an incoming freshman so it didn’t really do anything to me like it did to them. It means no chance at freshman scholarships. All because I was accepted to Northwood and chose to go there and they fucked me :\ I didn’t exactly intend on them closing down after normal admissions deadlines so I didn’t apply to any other Texas schools. And it looks like I am not good enough to get any scholarships from University of Texas at Dallas. Fuck everything right now. Everything was fine, I had everything set up, I was on track. How could they screw me like this?

Dad on cultural appropriation. (conversation was in Spanish)
Me: Hey Dad, I have a question
Dad: Alright, lets see if it's within my reach
Me: What do you think of cultural appropriation?
Me: Cultural appropriation.
Dad: I think you mean acculturation.
Me: yeah, I do. But I was using the term the Social Justice Morons use.
Dad: It's a necessary part of being human, you can't just keep the one culture all of your life!
Me: So how offended would you be if a bunch of white people started speaking Spanish?
Dad: Offended? I would be glad, at least they speak my language!
Me: What if a white guy made tacos?
Dad: what kind of taco? why would I be offended? Did I invent it and patent it?
Me: Nope, just an ordinary taco made by a white guy.
Dad: Why would I be offended? It would like a German guy getting offended because I grilled a hamburger
Me: Well, because it's a Mexican food, it was discovered and is integral to Mexican culture. What if a white person doesn't respect the history of the taco.
Dad: When the woman who first created a taco did that, did the Angels descend from heaven with a deed and a copyright form signed by God informing us that only Mexicans can make it?
Me: Nope. It's just a taco.
Dad: Precisely, it's a taco, eat it. I would actually be happy for that white guy, tacos are pretty good.
Me: What if Tyler wanted to celebrate El Dia de Los Muertos? On his own?
Dad: Tell him to pace himself the skulls are made of pure sugar.
Me: What if he wanted to celebrate El Dia de la Independencia?
Dad: Culture is not something handed to you by God to protect and nurse, it's just something that happens to you, and when you think you have it figured out, it changes. That's what cultures do. They change. You know what these people are trying to do, right?
Dad: They want us all to hate each other and not speak to each other. They want us Mexicans in Mexico, Afro-Americans in Africa, Asians in Asia and none of us talking or being nice to each other. With no resources, no trade, no rights, and only the one language that only we're allowed to speak so that we can't communicate with anyone outside. And that's after they'd kill off all the white people. They're like the KKK, if the KKK didn't have balls.
I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
I could’ve mentally prepared myself for just about any troubles with college. Running out of pads, not having food, being in debt, having to take out loans, getting last pick of classes.. but I could not have prepared for my college suddenly closing down their undergraduate programs just as I finish all my paperwork.
After how my vacation ended I know where I want to go and I know I won’t be as happy anywhere else. I had my first choice secured early, but now I am struggling to find any back ups that are still accepting applications. Now I’ve lost my scholarship and my chances at not needing any loans for college. I am having a very difficult time finding outside scholarships that I can apply to. Everything was prepared, everything was set up.. everything was perfect :( Now it’s all ruined.
