ETA: This is a scene from The House I Live In, a film on the American drug war and its effects on communities of color, education, the class disparity and the prison industrial complex.  I cannot recommend this film highly enough.

25 places that look not normal but are actually real


Sorry, but i refuse to believe the first one is real.

since i’ve answered this a million times, i’ve actually bookmarked the website 

“the tinted orange background is produced by a soaring dune shined by the morning sun – a backdrop for the hulks of camel thorn trees in Namib-Naukluft Park”, also on national geographic 

Reality is a fucking madhouse.

Mike Brown was murdered 64 days ago

This is something school lessons really downplay.

I legit thought it only lasted a week or two and was shocked when I learned otherwise.

Because to acknowledge the length of the protests/boycotts is to suggest that the United Stated resisted the right thing. They like to pretend like the country just didnt know what it was doing and only had to be tapped gently on the shoulder before it changed everything. They don’t want people to know that the country clung to its racism for almost a decade after the movement really started. Hell, they act like rosa parks, the million man march and the civil rights act all happened in one year or less. It didnt.

I got coffee with my old College Prep advisor/research advisor/overall mentor, today. It’s always nice seeing him because whenever we talk, he gives such great advice.

To put it into perspective, when I was going into my junior year in high school, I was taking the College Prep course and I was assigning schools as “dream,” “reach,” “match,” and “safety.” I labeled Georgetown as a reach school. My other mentor, his wife, looks at the paper, then looks back at me, and says, “You know, I think this is more of a match for you.” She knew my GPA and basically my entire academic career up to that point. If anyone else had said that, I would have scoffed and continued thinking I wasn’t fit for it. But since it came from her, I, amazingly enough, believed her. Now I’m at a top 20 school in the nation, studying Neuroscience. Wahaahaht.

Anyway, today, a similar situation occurred. I was describing my plan to do MPH while at the Peace Corps, and then MD after that. He listens patiently and then says, “Or, you know, you could do an MD/PhD program.” I audibly scoff this time, and respond with, “Most of the people that do MD/PhD seem more… put together.”
"Ah, see, everyone here… We’re all talk. There’s a lot of that at Hopkins."

And he said, “I have a lot of talks like these and I don’t tell everyone that walks through this door to do MD/PhD. But it seems to fit you. You’re qualified. Plus, it’s free.”

So… I’m gonna look into that as an option. But I’m certainly not getting my hopes up. Because, well, first I need to graduate.
