AM I SUPPOSED TO HATE MY BODY?

You, my good lady, made me cry with the ending. I have never seen something as rational and yet, personal, as this. It really made me think, pause, and analyze my own self-loathing and you’re so right. I’m wasting my precious time and I’ve damaged myself.

Why doesn’t this have more views? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about different things pertaining to myself, and one minute I’m okay with me and the next, I hate certain or all aspects of myself. In the shower this morning, I was thinking about my flabby arms and thunder thighs and I was like “Well, at least my stomach is kinda thin.” Then I thought, why do we have to pick bits and pieces of ourselves that we like in order to feel better about ourselves? Instead of shaming those certain features, why can’t we just love ourselves as a
whole? If we know we’ll never be perfect, then why do we critique ourselves and each other for not being perfect? It makes no sense. And this girl right here in this video is absolutely right. Why hate your body? What’s the point? If you have a problem with your weight, shape, or appearance, then maybe it’s not your body that you need to change, but instead, you need to change your way of thought/your self-concept. You are beautiful/handsome just the way you are. If you’re gonna change, change because you want to better yourself, not because of society’s crappy concept of beauty. You don’t need to starve yourself or workout, you just need to be happy. That’s all that matters.

Even if you want to change the way you look, why hate yourself today?

Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made

Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.

He proceeded to show it to us in class.

More than half of America’s economic growth is in the hands of only 5% of American employees! Are you in the 5%?

More than half of America’s economic growth is in the hands of only 5% of American employees! Are you in the 5%?

imageThe study of science, technology, engineering, & math (STEM) is at an all-time low in America. Only 15% of the world’s scientists are American, as opposed to the 40% of American Scientists less than 40 years ago!

Educational institutions and young students are over-looking the importance of STEM Studies. STEM professions are responsible for more than 50% of the United States sustained economic growth. They work hard to ensure that the can maintain the growth of their products without creating economic problems for our generations and future generations.

Although STEM studies are challenging, they are rewarding. For instance, IBM’s STEM employees have created a new supercomputer that has the ability to perform 16,000 Trillion calculation in just one second!

What does this mean for America? Faster calculation results means scientists would be able to do thing like tell how the human heart reacts to new medicines in just two hours instead of two days. They would also be able to predict natural disasters faster for earlier evacuation times.

STEM studies are doing all this with just the help of 5% of American workers. Just imagine how far we would advance, if that number doubled to just 10%.
