So help me god, Emily, you best be on your tumblr in class right now.

Come get pancakes with me and Johnna at Silver Diner after class.

We desire breakfast…at 9pm.

Ladies and gentlemen and those of you for whom the binary is restrictive or otherwise inaccurate: Library School.

Or: Man did I ever pick the wrong night to stay home…

We do productive things in class. Like plan to make pancakes at home. These are the important things in life.

I used my skills to research the best pancake recipe, a tip of the hat to you, Ms. Stewart.

THANK YOU. Manual labor is a noble profession, and extremely needed. And don’t tell me until you’ve worked as hard as many laborers do that a strong back isn’t as much a god-given blessing and talent as a sharp mind or whatever else.

I have a manual labor job. Because I choose to. I have worked in offices and such, but I absolutely HATE being cooped up. Unfortunately I do get self conscious when I meet someone and they ask me what I do. I hate that. I always hesitate because I don’t want them to judge me.

I really value what you do and respect you a great deal. Let’s eat portebello and swiss brats soon!

11 Quotes From Authors On Censorship & Banned Books" (via Buzzfeed)

What’s your opinion? Maybe these dangerous books will inspire you…

You know what I love about my profession? The American Library Association (ALA) advocates AGAINST banning books, and provides support to people/libraries/institutions where censorship has been attempted. They recognize that not all material is suitable for everyone, but that is up to the reader to determine that, not the library or librarian. Democracy and freedom, y’all.

I HAEV BEEN LAUHGIN GFOR ABUOT THRITY MINTUES SOMEON EHALP

My roommate (who is Nicaraguan dude), and I (a white chick), have been watching American Horror Story. First episode of season 1 he says “A Latin@ family would get the fuck out of that house instantly. Damn white people.” Cut to the last episode of season: a Latin@ family moves into the haunted house and leaves before the night is out. White people.
