I want to do this lipstick challenge where I have to wear everything I own for the next couple months before buying a new lipstick. Problem is I hate wearing lipstick to work. And my lips usually can’t handle that much consecutive wear. Soo…nevermind then.
does anybody else clean their phone screen by wiping it on their boob or is that just me
I always wonder if anyone notices when I do this.
Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014
While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.
“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”
Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.
So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”
As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
I have a lot of things to do at work today and it’s too hot and not enough brain space for it all
Also today is Tuesday, not Monday. And I just lost a WHOLE day out of this week.
that was so much better than i expected
Why is it so damn hot in this office???
You can tell I really like a show when I don’t check tumblr or Instagram during it. Today I watched 6 hours of uninterrupted New Girl.
I’ve done 2 days at my friends crossfit gym and I feel like I was hit by a truck.
