at the science and engineering library. neuro final in 8 hours. there is a kyoot asian dude sitting in front of me.
I wonder if anyone around sees me on tumblr and is like, ‘oh wow that girl is on tumblr when she should be studying. she’s gonna faaail’ there are people around hmm maybe.
definitely not failing neuro
most def failing human physiology even though I absolutely loved covering the material for it. SO I GET ANOTHER QUARTER OF IT YAY.
let’s stop making jokes about girls and start making jokes about white boys
here i’ll start
*white boy voice* chill out man it was just a joke
[walks into class 10 minutes late with a can of Monster] sorry I’m late I got frontpage on Reddit
[wipes cheeto dust off onto cargo shorts] so if you support gender equality does that mean it’s ok to hit women now?
[arrives in the winter with shorts and flip-flops] reverse racism is just as bad as being in the KKK
[pauses Macklemore song] why aren’t there scholarships for white men
I am going to fail human physiology.
Good bye med school. as if I ever had a fucking chance in the first place.
and I swear to god if one more person tells me “failing one class isn’t the end of the world!” or “I still think you’re smart!” I am going to run over a fucking kitten and throw it at their face. People telling me how smart they think I am is just a cruel reminder of my reality and utter inability to live up to these expectations. so just fucking stop.
you know what that means
crying every day for 2-4 hours because I can’t do anything right
she put on happiness like a loose dress over pain I’ll never know
fuck you antipsychotic meds
Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.
The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.
“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.
“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”
Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.
In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.
Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?
Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.
When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.
Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands
basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them
Men grow up expecting to be the hero of their own story. Women grow up expecting to be the supporting actress in somebody else’s… I refuse to burn my energy adding extra magic and sparkle to other people’s lives to get them to love me. I’m busy casting spells for myself.
do you ever just “what the fuck is the point” so hard that you stop everything you’re doing and stare and pretty much wonder why you don’t vanish from existence because the level of done you are should pretty much deconstruct your biological makeup
