mindovermatterzine: Andrew, who runs the wonderful zine ilivesweat (check it out!) gave me a heads up on this interesting and important article about DC Comics’ portrayal of the mentally ill (particularly those with psychotic diagnoses). The role of the media in encouraging stigmatizing attitudes towards the mentally ill should not be underestimated - especially comics, which have a high...
I've just realised.
If I do go to Canada next year, then I won’t be able to attend my uni’s Monster Ball until 2014, because I’ve got a year out in 2013. FML that’s a scary thought.
Why am I still awake?!
It’s 06:19. But it’s 07:19 to me, because of the clocks changing. I didn’t go out so I could get an early night and I’m awake at this time. It’s dawn outside. I don’t understand my body. It really fucking hates me or something.
I feel SO ill. I don’t understand, I only recovered from my last illness 3 weeks ago. I woke up feeling fine, went back to sleep and then woke up again feeling like I’d been eating razor blades or something. And I can taste blood, that can’t be good… Still haven’t signed up at the health centre sooooo I guess I’ve got to deal with it. I sold my ticket to see...
Fuck Yeah, Gender Studies!: Christ... AskMen.com... →
fuckyeahgenderstudies: This is so surprising to me. AskMen.com is a lot of things (mostly sensationalistically misogynistic), but i would not have expected “dubious about male rape” to be on that list. Apparently, it is. Perhaps this opinion in particular has something to do with the fact that the author is a woman… Holy shit. Could they not just put that last line and leave it at that?

fuckyeahgenderstudies: I followed this story as it developed on @TransMediaWatch’s Twitter. You can read full details in the Independent at the above link, but here’s an illuminating extract: As Minchin put it: “[I have learnt] that grown people seem to think demanding & receiving an apology has inherent value. Apologies are about intent.” He also admitted that he is “too proud… to succumb...
One week until I'm back in London!!
YES! Can’t wait to be back and see my friends (or perhaps just the one). Hopefully I’ll be off my face at exactly this time next week. Can’t bloody wait. I just hope I don’t get given any important assignments, because they will not get done.
Okay I've had 2 dreams this week that they were...
The first time it took me two days to realise it was just a dream, the second time I sadly realised when I woke up. Why is that idea even in my head? God, it was so exciting. This is what my life has become. Dreaming about new seasons of 16 year old TV shows. I just want to hear new Chandler jokes :(

What the fuck am I doing with my life?!
I went to bed at around 1am last night, slept in until noon. I went to lab for a couple of hours and then I came home and slept from 3:30 until 9:30. How can I be so tired? I have work to do and I can’t because I just want to sleep.
I forgot what procrastination is like for me!

Essay please kindly write yourself.
I’m starting to think I’m not cut out for university. 4 years of this shit. I’m far too apathetic. I haven’t learnt anything in the 3 weeks I’ve been here. I’m not happy here, I’m not sad here. I’ve never felt excited to be here, and I’ve never felt nervous. I feel like I’m just here and time is passing me by. The only thing I enjoy is...

mindovermatterzine: An amendment by Lord Owen that would have sent part of the bill to be examined by a special select committee - which some thought could derail the bill fatally - failed by 262 to 330. An amendment by Lord Rea that would have stopped the bill in its tracks failed by 220 to 354. IF YOU’RE NOT OUTRAGED, YOU’RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

That could be very amusing. I hope they do get booked, they’d be headlining if they did because apparently they’re really frigging expensive.
