It’s that time of year again!

Alright guys, if you’re in high school still and are interested in studying a foreign language abroad completely paid for by the US government, you should probably apply for the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) program. With NSLI-Y you have the opportunity to spend the summer or academic year in a host country where the US government has deemed the spoken language as critical for advancing US interests abroad. You can visit countries like Russia, South Korea, China, Jordan, Oman, Morocco, Tajikistan, India, Turkey, and others!

I went to Jordan for the summer 2013 program, and I got to take a selfie with a camel, meet some of the most wonderful people, and learn one of the hardest languages in the world. So if camels (location dependent) and people and languages sound exciting, you should probably apply for this awesome opportunity. Did I mention it’s completely free?

This girl said she was “forced” to watch the (brilliant) Jon Stewart monologue on racism in our country, and she was NOT Amused.

I responded: “Race is so not even an issue in this country. I mean the Civil Rights movement happened 60 years ago for crying out loud! It’s not like there are even people still living today that embody the “separate but equal” concept and think that interracial marriage was dirty and immoral! And it’s not like those people ever had children and raised them to believe the same things. This whole debate on racism is ridiculous. We aren’t racist, we have a black president! Black people are allowed to vote and own property, and it’s not like we make them farm cotton for no pay anymore. It’s ridiculous that some people even think that we could even be racist. I mean, they have all the basic rights that us white people do. Just because some unarmed defenseless black kid was killed by a white guy doesn’t mean he didn’t deserve it, and it definitely has nothing to do with his skin color! I bet the cop would have shot a white kid, too. Who cares that the residents are almost wholly unrepresented by people who experience life the same way as they do? There’s no possible reason we even need to talk about race anymore. The 60’s are over people! The only reason racism is even a topic anymore is because angry liberals want to culturally appropriate the blacks because they want votes, and it is entirely impossible that they even care slightly about the so-called “racism” and “racial inequality” that don’t even exist in our country today and haven’t in so long!”

Because that is actually what white people sound like when they claim racism is not apparent all over in our country. Five bucks says she doesn’t catch the sarcasm.

Public Service Announcement

you can have meaningful sex with someone without being married. just because you’re not married does not mean your sex is dirty or meaningless.

Why is it I can’t search the tags for porn anymore but I can still search for self harm and eating disorders? Having suffered from both of those diseases, I would much rather a young person be exposed to porn than either of those, for they have the potential to be significantly more harmful.
