When chronically ill people watch TV or play video games, we aren't just goofing off or being lazy. →

Not that we’re incapable of goofing off or being lazy, but hear me out.

Watching TV and playing video games both put you into a mild trance-like state that makes you less aware of your surroundings. This has the side-effect of making you less aware of physical pain and…

My entire family needs to read this. and understand this.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

All of the reblogs!
But make sure to read this essay about how Amazon is better for writers than for publishers, too.

OMG! I am reading the lecture from week 4 and it has “ADD and ADHD” and later “ADHD controversy…”

Like, for reals, I feel like if you are teaching at a university level and you do not understand the current DSM definition of ADHD, and you are still under the impression that it’s a made up thing, then you probably need to do some research and look at some damn brainscans.

I spent 25yrs of my life hating myself for my inability to function properly in a variety of situations. I thought it was my fault. my teachers thought it was my fault. my peers thought it was my fault. my parents thought it was my fault.

But it wasn’t. MY brain works differently. Not better differently. Worse differently.

ADHD isn’t a convenient excuse. It is friggen pain in the neck. 

I really wish it was something that you could bung on to get out of class. Then I could stop bunging it on when it no longer suits me…

tbh the only reason i know how to read a clock is so i can figure out when we get out of class

tbh thats pretty narrowminded

you also need it to understand, “hottie, 9 oclock!!”
