Source: Understanding the phenomenon of synesthesia.

Follow Francesca Mura on Pinterest

I experience forms of this. 

I have grapheme-color synesthesia. I made a post about it, like, a year ago. Where did I put that thing? Anyway, I’m an associator. :D

I remember reading about this in horrible science when I was young. There was a guy could apparently remember everything in his life due to synesthesia. I also remember he once told someone: “What a crumbly yellow voice you have!”

No formal diagnosis but ordinal-linguistic personification represent! It’s letters, numerals, and months for me. Letters are the strongest one.

reblogging with all the crap because it has the source but oh hey, i’m actually confirmed by a doctor to have this. it’s the most frustratingly beautiful thing.

Getyedone.com: Turn your To-do list into an adventure!

greni:

When it come to lists, I have been a very happy user of wunderlist for a long time - it is very simple, you can add notes or documents to your tasks and what is the most important thing, I have a very nice wooden background there! 

Though lately, I’ve been looking for something like a social website for to-do listers, where you would earn points for finished tasks or so, convinced that there just has to be something like that. And there is, even better than I expected!!

Getyedone.com (or just “Challenge accepted”) offers you a RPG form of completing tasks on your to-do list. When you sign up , you choose your class, alignment and race and then you just earn EXP and skills for finished tasks. It’s not really a game (therefore no procrastination!), though leveling up and competing with others might quite motivate you to complete more and more tasks.

Regarding the practical side of this website, what I really appreciate is actually the "quest log" system. You do not only have just tasks there - you can group them into guests and these guests into large odysseys, which gives your to-do list nice structure.Though what I appreciate even more is that your tasks can be endurable and you can complete them as many times as you wish (for example I tick answering e-mails every morning)

And finally, another one quite interesting feature is called “parties” - simply groups for users to somehow meet and compete. That alone is not that cool… but an idea to create one of these for tumblr users definitely is! It could be quite nice to gather all studyspo buddies over there to be productive in one place, so please reblog this with your name if you make an account or just write me some message, because that would be so exciting! Let’s just connect okaay?

my friend and i had to break a social norm for our sociology class so we drove around and catcalled boys (and one male teacher omfg) and they all looked so alarmed and confused and like they thought we were straight up crazy it was priceless and it rlly highlighted the fact that women just expect to be harassed when walking down the street whereas guys are just completely taken aback by it

this is a really important thing for people to understand

I hope you got an A!!

Hey, so I got accepted to my dream school but the problem is that it takes me an hour to get there by bus. I'm so worried because I'll have so little time to study and everything since my school is far away... and there's no way for me to move..

attackonstudying answered:

Congrats on getting accepted. Hmm, my school takes about an hour to get there as well by bus. Have you tried to study on the bus? You could save some study time by studying whilst you take the transportation. I know it is not for everyone because some feel sick after reading on the bus/metro. But, you could make use of that time. If you feel distracted in that environment, just listen to some music and study. I need music to study since it helps me filter out all the other noises. Think of it this way, if you do study on the bus, you would have more free time to spend when you get home. The study time on the bus would add up if you are constant. 

That is also what I do. I read/study whilst taking transportation so when I return back home, I am able to have a bit more leisure time.

Good Luck.

If you get sick reading on the bus you could also tape your lectures to listen to instead to make use of that time.

(Images should be read from the bottom, up.)

GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.

When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.

This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…

… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.

Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.

Thank you.

Go fund me has done other shitty things as well.

We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

This is not…The Onion. 

Wow. 

It’s only fair, really, since most college-age girls out of self-preservation must view their male peers as rapists just waiting for an opportunity to take advantage and ruin THEIR lives.
