    do you ever

    do you ever just have

    that one class

    that one freaking class

    that just depresses you when you think about it because

    oh god you hate it so much

    The bourgeoisie

    I had kind of a nerd-out this morning. But I felt like everyone needed to know about this.

    I think I’d read an entire book on this. If you’ve written one, please let me know about it.

    I can’t believe how much this post has blown up, over 8K notes in two days! I’m loving everyone’s enthusiasm for history!

    I researched a lot of this sort of thing while working at a local museum a few summers ago, and have since turned that work into actual articles. This turned into a reflection on fashion for First Things, which you can read here. As for any longer work, one of these days somebody’s gonna let me into their grad school for history and the madness can begin. Until then, you could probably get some good book recommendations from people like historicalfashion (love her blog).

    I would contest a few points about the exact origins, but I love it! I may have to show the experts on 18th century fashion I’ll be seeing later today.

  6. I made the mistake of reading the song list for this year’s revels. I know most of the music. That’s not usually how that goes. I want to be in it so so so bad i’ll probably cry when I watch it.

Autumn equinox is arriving on September 23, 2014 at 2:29 (UTC). You can check the exact time in your area from here!
The autumn equinox is when the Earth has almost no tilt on its axis in regards to the sun. This means that both hemispheres of the Earth receive approximately the same amount of sunlight. You’ll notice that on equinox days, night and day are almost equal in length! 
Get ready for sweater weather and foliage!

Lots of people seem to get confused about what exactly an equinox is, so we made a video explaining the real deal.

    "you can’t be just friends with people of the gender you’re attracted to"
    myth actually true. i, as a bisexual, can confirm that i have no friends.

    pansexuals spend their lives in solitude, with only rocks for company

    meanwhile asexuals are friends with everyone. literally every single person on the planet. i do not know how i remember so many names

About me

Glorified talking to myself.
