It seems Glenn Beck likes to catch everyone off guard every once in a while with a compassionate revelation or opposition to the conservative mainstream. The pundit has been outspoken about his dislike for Donald Trump, has criticized Republicans for refusing to consider President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, and he has even urged "empathy" for the Black Lives Matter movement. And now, Beck — who once said that Obama has a "a deep-seated ...

"If Mr. Trump is Teflon, Mrs. Clinton must be Velcro: Every transgression, real or perceived, from her decades-long career in politics stubbornly sticks to her."

The hypocrisy is just astounding.

A female used a credit card that belonged to Donohoe on December 22, to purchase items at a beauty supply store and at additional retail stores in the Hyattsville area. She purchased a total of $700 worth of items, according to officials.

"This morning, I called in sick to work 15 minutes before I was supposed to be there. I fought. I wanted to go. I told my manager I had a fever and I was throwing up. The truth is I am sick today. But calling to say my brain is sick is not a socially-acceptable reason to not show up to work."

I've told my sons why dismantling rape culture is so important to me, but they will never truly understand how survivors of it feel.

Story
Tagline
a pessmistic idealist and expert procrastinator
Introduction
I'm a former figure-skater, high-jumper, 50-yard dasher and soccer player. Currently working at Harvard College and taking classes towards an Ed.M. I'm shy but opinionated, (an INTP?) and will post my thoughts on things I like, love and hate and will debate about all of it. Check out my +1's for everything in between. 

**some are asking for hobbies, interests, etc to better assist in placing people in their circles. so, while this is nowhere near an exhaustive list, and i'd really like to see everything you have to offer, here are my "dominant interests"!

Politics - National and International
Current Events
Strange news
Photography (i'm a complete amateur who just likes to shoot. friendly critiques welcome! :D )
Art (no specific kind, i like a feast for the eyes!)
Education (& reform)
Higher Ed/issues surrounding it
Interesting or innovative pedagogy
"Feminist" issues or news
Crass/inappropriate/tasteless (or tasteful!) comedy
Music - almost all of it.
Animals - funny ones, cute ones, ugly ones. love 'em!
Time-wasting websites
Shoes
Boston sports teams
Literature
Travel/places to visit/wonders of the world
....so there you have it. Circle away!


Bragging rights
1) i haven't fallen in about a month! 2) i've sung the national anthem in front of hundreds of people multiple times 3) i'm not pregnant or married
