Hi, welcome to my tumblr. On here you'll find the most random collection of things that I find on the internet that I think are awesome/cool and my opinion of things that I experience(music, movies, etc).

Snow days were a lot cooler when 1) I wasn’t expected to work from home and 2) I lived within walking distance of many bars.

Positive Correlation

The more you ride my ass the more I follow the rules of the road.

I will not go even 1 mph over the speed limit and I WILL come to a complete stop—twice!!—at a stop sign.

So go ahead, tailgate me some more.

What number dead here would it have taken to give the nation real pause? There were 12 dead yesterday and none was taken.

When 12 people are massacred in Washington, it’s not people dying in Real America. The rest of the nation does not stand “D.C. Strong.” Profile pictures do not become ribbons. 

Twelve people died on Monday and, outside of DC, no one seems to be acknowledging this. I’ve been struggling to figure out why and I think what she’s saying here is exactly correct: because the death of these 12 people in a government building in Washington, DC is not relatable. And, to be perfectly honest, I also think it’s because people can’t somehow turn this into something about themselves (i.e. runners turning the Boston Marathon bombings into an “attack against runners” (/givemeabreak)). Have we become this desensitized to mass murders that we can only acknowledge them when they directly relate to us? If that’s the case, let me put it this way: 12 people went to work on Monday and never made it home.

THANK YOU! I was going to post about this yesterday, but decided I didn’t want the hate that usually comes along with posting my opinions. Instead I brought it up to Eric on our run. I was like… why does no one care? Do people only care when it’s kids getting killed?

Anyway, I agree 100%.
