I am Laura. I be 20. I'm a student at UNO. :D This is where I'll be posting rants, pictures, videos, artwork, and the like. I would enjoy it if you followed me, and more often than not, I'll follow you right back. :) Oh, and unless I add "(taken by me)" or something along those lines, the picture/video does NOT belong to me! If you see one that belongs to you, feel free to kindly let me know and I'll give you credit. ^-^
Oh hell no.
"Popular children possess social knowledge that leads to successful interactions with their peers and also behave in ways that manifest this expertise. Rejected children, on the other hand, have a more limited awareness of how to solve social problems, believing particularly in the effectiveness of aggression." -my Child Psychology book. Bull. Shit. It literally goes on to say that victims of bullying become the victims in the first place because they’re "weak", and have "anxiety, low self-esteem, loneliness, and depression." Yeah, because they were BULLIED! How else is a child supposed to feel when they’re singled out because they’re not as pretty, they don’t do "cool" things, and they prefer to read quietly than causing trouble? I ended up isolating myself because I preferred to just do what I liked, alone, rather than trying to do what everyone else liked and deal with being laughed at or stared at like I was something you didn’t want to get too close to. I was always polite, NEVER resorted to aggression, always smiled and waved, and shared all my stuff. Clearly, a lack of appropriate social skills and an inability to correctly interpret social cues. How then, have I been employed and earned a college scholarship while quite a few of the "socially adept" children have been in jail for drugs? Got kicked out of high school for showing up drunk? Went through boys or girls faster than our family of six goes through toilet paper? Ugh. Sorry.
So apparently my Harry Potter collection is too large. So I have to get rid of all the things that are in storage (things I have multiples of). I could sell them, but I probably wouldn’t get much from it, so I’m going to give the stuff away.

WHY CAN’T WE JUST GET ALONG?
I keep hearing that gays have no constitutional right to marry… True. But it’s not a constitutional right for heteros to marry either. In fact, there’s nothing at all in the Constitution about marriage. And the Bible says so? Guess what - not everybody’s religious. And the Bible also says: “For why is my freedom being judged by another’s conscience?” (1 Corinthians 10:29 NIV)
Last week, I had just witnessed being in the presence of Robbie Weisman, the survivor, and it was amazing. At the end, every one of the kids lined up to give him hugs and he kissed me on the cheek. He is such a kind man, and for what he's been through is truly unbelievable. He is so amazing and I am so proud and honoured to meet him and I'm sure you are too :')
I agree, it’s something I’ll never forget!

My reaction every time I see any reference to stuff like Facebook or the global recession in J.K. Rowling’s new book.
I keep feeling like I’m just reading about Harry’s neighbors or something, and then…WHAT. REAL WORLD?
