"It’s a heck of a kiss!"
Just press play and listen
god damn it it works.
it works, and that’s the greatest crime of all.
In which John Green teaches you about Charlotte Brontë’s classic coming of age novel, Jane Eyre. Look, we don’t like to make judgement values here, but Jane Eyre is awesome. By which we mean the book is great, and the character is amazing. When Jane Eyre was published in 1847, it was a huge hit. It really hit the controversial balance beautifully, being edgy enough to make news, but still mainstream enough to be widely popular. It was sort of like the Fight Club of it’s day, but not quite as testosterone-fueled. You’ll learn a little about the story, learn about Jane as a feminist heroine, and even get some critical analysis on how Bertha might just be a dark mirror that acts out Jane’s emotional reactions.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? - Darren Criss | Download
It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with
tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they
cannot find it. Millions are condemned to a stiller doom than mine,
and millions are in silent revolt against their lot. Nobody knows
how many rebellions besides political rebellions ferment in the
masses of life which people earth. Women are supposed to be very
calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise
for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their
brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a
stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded
in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to
confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to
playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to
condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn
more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”
Jane Eyre, Chapter 12
The “mask” of the calm and serene Victorian woman hides a soul in revolt.
There are so many masks in this book I could spend all day looking for them. Unfortunately, I have to go to work.
whenever people say they dont like cats because they dont happily greet you at the door i give them the stinkiest eye
It’s been really interesting to read everyone’s thoughts on Simon v. Rochester, and with today’s episode bringing our favorite inept CEO back into the limelight, I thought I would rewatch a few eps. I thought it was interesting how on the outside their interactions with Jane look somewhat similar, but underneath they are 100% different.
GIRLS ARE NOT THE PHOTONS THAT HIT THE CORNEAS OF BOYS.”

Life is too short to hop on and off of bandwagons all the time.
8. Probing us on whether or not we think something is violent is kind of beside the point.
You can be a football fan or a hockey fan or a wrestling fan, acknowledge the sport is inherently violent, and still cheer on your boys. You can be a male sports fan and be deterred from the violence (like President Obama is). To apply the heteronormative binary that women hate violence and men thrive off of it is to forget that most all of us like competition. That is what everyone bonds over when it comes to sports.
9. No, this isn’t just a “phase.”
We are tried and true, through thick and thin, ’til death do us part, and everything in between. It doesn’t matter if our dads taught us the intricacies of the game when we were little girls, or if the college we went to had a big sports culture, or moved to a new city and supporting the new team made us feel like we were at home, or if we just one day decided to up and pay attention. We’re fans. We have been fans, we are fans, and we will be fans. Life is too short to hop on and off of bandwagons all the time.
