House of Mind: The Neuroscience Behind Near Death... →
houseofmind: So today I found a neuroscience review dealing with a far-out topic: the neuroscience underlying near death experiences (NDE) and other “paranormal” phenomena such as experiences seeing bright lights, meeting the dead or being convinced that you are dead. According to Mobbs and Watt (2011),…
I'm 23 and I have lots of joint pain.
Oh my god, my knees. I don’t remember the last time they were this painful when I was just lying down.

Used our new washer and dryer tonight. I did 3 loads, all under different settings, and finally got to wash my handwash items because the washer has that as a setting. Awesome. Tomorrow I’ll be helping my dad for awhile in the morning probably, and catch the beginning of the game before I head to tutoring and our first dress rehearsal for Finian’s Rainbow! I wish I had the ability to...

Sort of having a rough night. Tights are completely ripped, phone is being slow, and tutoring for tomorrow was canceled. That’s the third time a session has been canceled just this week. As the semester continues, it might be harder for them to get sessions with me. It’s about time I made myself and my academic success a priority.
Some things that will be achieved in the next year

Canadian Gov.'t Dissolves Every Same-Sex Marriage... →
stfuconservatives: Thousands of Americans have gone to Canada over the past few years to get married. As of today, their marriages are nullified, thanks to conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Dan Savage is one of the people whose marriage was unceremoniously dissolved last night. ETA: The original post stated that it was because of Harper’s new policy. That was incorrect, and I’m sorry...
