“We grew up with the Internet and on the Internet. This is what makes us different; this is what makes the crucial, although surprising from your point of view, difference: we do not ‘surf’ and the internet to us is not a ‘place’ or ‘virtual space’. The Internet to us is not something external to reality but a part of it: an invisible yet constantly present layer intertwined with the physical environment. We do not use the Internet, we live on the Internet and along it. If we were to tell our bildungsroman to you, the analog, we could say there was a natural Internet aspect to every single experience that has shaped us. We made friends and enemies online, we prepared cribs for tests online, we planned parties and studying sessions online, we fell in love and broke up online. The Web to us is not a technology which we had to learn and which we managed to get a grip of. The Web is a process, happening continuously and continuously transforming before our eyes; with us and through us. Technologies appear and then dissolve in the peripheries, websites are built, they bloom and then pass away, but the Web continues, because we are the Web; we, communicating with one another in a way that comes naturally to us, more intense and more efficient than ever before in the history of mankind.”—Piotr Czerski (via elizabitchtaylor)
i know i give white people a lot of shit but u guys are really nice. like when the light turns green and there’s a white pedestrian that’s almost across the street u guys always do that jog thing. i know it’s kind of insignificant but i appreciate it white people. u and ur half jog thing.
i think about this post every time i do the half jog thing
is it okay if i say we forget about 2013 and ask instead - top 5 things you're looking forward to in 2014!
ahh this is such a nice ask, thank you ;___;
it took me a really long time to make friends and a place for myself where i felt comfortable w/ a lot of people (and i’m still getting there), so it’s really refreshing for once to feel excited for all the times to be had in the rest of this year? idk i’m graduating soon and everyone’s gonna be leaving so i’m gonna cherish the time i have left w/ them. also getting to know ppl better, hopefully :’)
BEING DONE W/ IB AT LAST WOW FUCK YES
i’m totally gonna fall into the trap, that deceptive ~*~fresh start at university~*~ mindset that makes me think im gonna change and have gr8 new experiences and meet cool ppl and be all determined to learn stuff and Start My Life Anew when in reality im probably gonna lie on my bed a lot and feel bad, but still, deep down, it’s gonna be a new stage of my life and it’s intimidating but also exciting rn
the blood of olympus lmao and other books/movies that’re gonna be released n__n
snsd (igab) was my first kpop comeback ever, so. this album kept me alive tbH
4minute (what’s your name) - i remember this day i came home and just felt SO HAPPY wow
infinite (destiny) - hello top played song on itunes. it’s amazing bc at the time i thought i was drifting away from infinite a bit but then i watched this single video of them dancing in streets and dramatically bursting into flames (???) and i instantly remembered all my embarrasing luv and happiness bye
girl’s day (female president) - inspirational tbh
i loved glam’s comebacks at the beginning of this year?? i like that and in front of the mirror. they were the 2nd girl group i liked :’(( what happened to them

sayaka miki my darling baby girl. idealistic heroine who gave herself up for the world - enough to make kyoko believe in the magic of stories again… IM SORRY… this is trash. bye.
himari from mawaru penguindrum tbh. just - a very normal girl who had dreams and had to give them up, loved and was loved and found her happiness from that. also she’s so kind and selfless and a qt and :’((( “it’s nice knowing someone will find you.” mpd is the only series i still rewatch after finishing, hah.
nami from one piece okAY i’m never gonna get over her. it’s been a while since i watched it but… forever girl. sometimes i go about my life normally, and then sometimes i remember that scene at the end of her arc when she ran through the crowds of her village’s townspeople back to the ship, and then revealed that she’d stolen literally every single one of their wallets. do u ever cry
liesel meminger from the book thief was a rly formative influence for me when i was younger. writing and all that
