I just wanted to look up something about dinosaurs. I never learned about any of this in science class. Thanks, Google.

Back To School For The First Time
So if all goes according to plan -- and so far it's looking like it will -- I'll be going back to school this fall for the first time since 2009. I'm going to be pursuing my BA in English, and possibly double majoring in something else, but I'll see what I can handle first. Part of this involves moving to Santa Monica, which is a big step, but it's exciting.

This isn't just a big deal because I'm going to finish what I started. It's big because of the circumstances around my last attempt. To make a long story short, a lot happened during the latter part of my two years there, and it resulted in an intense mental breakdown to where I had to drop out. Later I realized I don't really remember anything from those years.

I went to my old school to talk to a counselour, and though we'd supposedly met before, I didn't recognize her at all. On my transcript I noticed classes I never remembered registering for, much less taking and passing. I saw a professor I apparently had for two semesters and met with repeatedly and I had no idea who she was. Despite going to that school for two years I had no idea where anything was and couldn't find my way without help.

It's a truly disconcerting feeling to be missing that much, and it's why I feel like I'm starting college for the first time.

After that I said I'd never go back, but here I am. And honestly, I'm extremely excited. My classes are registered, I'm buying school supplies and getting organized and meeting with counselours and it's pretty great. I'm even excited to study. I think I'm finally ready to go finish this thing. Given what happened last time, I'm all the more determined to do the best job I can.

Then I get to figure out what to do with my degree, but that'll come later.

On the good news front, we see the ever-increasing momentum of this thing here. Frankly this number seems much lower to me than it should be, but at least we can say we're moving in the right direction, albeit slowly.
It's a far cry from 1996, the first year in which Gallup posed the question to Americans. Back then, 68 percent of respondents said same-sex marriages should not be valid.

If you're a charitable person, be wary of where your money is going. Four cancer charities have been labeled shams, spending only three cents on the dollar from donations on cancer patients. They are:

• The Cancer Fund of America
• Cancer Support Services
• Children’s Cancer Fund of America
• The Breast Cancer Society
The Federal Trade Commission says four cancer charities conned donors out of $187 million and spent almost nothing to help actual cancer patients.

Thanks for the information. This kind of thing just makes it very difficult to help.

I just love stuff like this. People can be just great when they want to be.
The Plaid Zebra originally shared to Inspiring & Awesome:
 
This gives homeless people the opportunity to improve their hygiene to kickstart an effort to get off the streets.
Lucas Patchett and Nicholas Marchesi (both 20 years old as of October) felt that not enough was being done about Brisbane’s homelessness problem. So they came up with an incredibly innovative idea. They set up washing machines in their van to create a portable Laundromat to wash clothes for those in need. This is the idea that they are calling Orange Sky Laundry Project.

I really like the design over the table here. Though it bothers me that there are four lights on one side but three on the other.

+Kerry Li Yeah. I actually don't mind the aesthetic too much. It's a little mix of elegant and cozy, at least to me.

I'm assuming so. That was the risk with it going around everywhere I suppose. :(

Every time a discussion about trigger or content warnings comes up there's always some person who goes "Life is shitty grow up and deal with it." This romanticizing of cynicism aside, have y'all tried spending even half as much effort on making the world a not-shitty place as you do chucking your lack of empathy at people? Honestly, if the world is shitty, it's because of people like that.

I've been known to deliver a cynical quip now and then, but try not to have negativity be my go-to response.

Introduction
Hello! My name is Kay Solo, and if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked if I’m related to Han, I would have a lot of dollars.

I’m just someone who writes for a living, enjoys gaming more than is probably healthy and occasionally takes photographs. I edit, I do other stuff and now I’m blogging on WordPress, though my activity is anything but regular. I love exploring psychology, dreams and sleep, which is part of what inspired one of my book series, The Dream Sanctum. For work I ramble about politics and current events, and I have gotten a surprisingly low amount of hate mail as a result.

I live in Southern California, which means ten months of complaining about the heat, two months complaining about the cold and twelve months complaining about the traffic.

My dislike of the Oxford comma has earned me more enemies than any other opinion, but I hope you like what you see. Thanks for visiting!

You can also find me on Twitter and my personal website.
