I wonder what it’d be like to be ancient.

Like, literally ancient. Like, thousands of years old.

I wonder what it’d be like to watch civilizations rise and fall,

to watch a single man and woman become a family with hundreds of members,

to watch a thriving city become a forgotten pile of rubble.

I wonder what it’d be like to see the lives of even the oldest of men as fleeting.

The do not underestimate the necessity of mentorship

I’m seeing this dudes in crop tops thing and I’m strongly considering joining the wave.

Women and toilet squatting

thayoungwolf:

Many women think it’s effective to squat over public toilet seats to “avoid germs” but actually if you do this often you put yourself at risk for UTIs or other bladder infections because squatting causes constriction in the pelvic area around the urethra which prevents the bladder from emptying completely. This allows bacteria to build up. It’s much better to cover the seat with paper because contrary to popular belief you CANNOT get a UTI from a toilet seat.

So this kinda turned into a long post, lmao.

In a few centuries, literary analysts and linguists and language enthusiasts are gonna look back at our little chunk of history and just geek right the Hell out.

The same way some of us freak out over Shakespeare.

Only worse, because the evolution and expansion of the English language has just gone friggen crazy in these short few decades.

Like, everything from L337 speak, to text abbreviations, to the use of emoji instead of certain words, to the phonetic typing out of dialects that were previously only ever spoken (like pattois and ebonics), to hashtags, to a HOST of new onomatopoeia created by people who just wanted a funnier way to describe a particular sound, to the countless words we make up and discard every couple of months… I get excited just thinking about the crazy, amazing things we’ve done with this language in the past couple decades.

I mean… I can be excited about something someone else posted, and just comment “rasdfasdf;lkjl;sdfwretlkejhlkjhl”

AND EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THAT I’M JUST EXCITED.

DO YOU KNOW HOW CRAZY THAT IS ?!

We use fragments of sentences to convey entire thoughts. Like, I can’t even… Can we just… Brehh… 

WE CONTROL TONE AND VOLUME WITH SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THE CAPS-LOCK BUTTON.

I CAN YELL AT YOU WITH TEXT. I can whisper to you with text.

I can even add extra letters so that you know how I want you to emphasize certain things, when you read them. Isn’t that soooooooooooo cool? 

I could literally go on for hours about how awesome we’ve made this language. I haven’t even gotten to how we’ve USED it, i.e. literature. I’ve just scratched the surface on the actual language itself.

Oh My Gosh!

I got first place in the poetry slam at my school tonight! I’m still in shock. Like, out of all the amazing poets, they chose me. Thug tears man. All credit goes to God for this one, cause forreal, I know it wasn’t me on that stage. Barely anyone knew me before this, and now, I guess I’m stepping out of the shadows.

Congratulations!!!

Thank you so much!

That’s awesome ! Congrats !!

Stepping out is always exciting.
