This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.
That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.
This is why we download.
Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive.
not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend
REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.
friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon
Will reblog every time I see it.
These photos were taken deep underground within the miles of abandoned mines beneath Yekaterinburg, Russia. Layers of carnallite — a mineral used in fertilizers — band the tunnel walls, producing these technicolor masterpieces. Think a subterranean version of China’s stunning rainbow mountains.

Anita Sarkeesian makes videos looking at how poorly women are represented in games, and gamers hate her for it, insulting her work and accusing her of dishonesty. It’s almost like they’re trying to prove her premise.

"I think the greatest place where we let ourselves down is that we sometimes think we need to be right. There’s power in vulnerability. You don’t have to know all the answers. But there is a place in life where you get to know your own mind … And you don’t have to apologize for growing and learning and changing your mind."- Tori Amos (Huff Post Live)
