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.
James is getting a bit frustrated shut up here, he tries not to show it but I can tell - also, Dumbledore’s still got his Invisibility Cloak, so no chance of little excursions. If you could visit, it would cheer him up so much.
If you’re one of those people who thinks that everyone’s opinion should be respected, no matter how vile it is, then you can unfollow me right the fuck now.
I hate that shit.
I really do.
Don’t be that fucking person. Don’t give someone’s oppressive and harmful words an iota of dignity just because they have the right to say it. Their status quo solidifying bullshit doesn’t need more praise and support, it already has it from people who have a hell of a lot more power than you do.
TUTORIAL | Burned Paper Nails
1. Paint your nails with a light nude polish, wait until it’s completely dries.
2. Put a piece of newspaper in alcohol, and wait 15-20 sec.
3.Place the wet paper onto your nails, push it down with your fingers and wait until the alcohol evaporates (7-10 sec), and remove the paper.
4. Topcoat it with clear polish.
5. Draw some lines with black polish, where you want your burned papers edges.
6., 7. Put some black and brown polish with a piece of makeup sponge around the black lines.
8. Clean up the edges with acetone.
9. Use a matte topcoat.

But James and Sirius drunk in the common room…
daring each other to do stupid shit as tests of sobriety when they are both completely sloshed
dance offs (muggle disco dance offs)
trying to convince everyone to play exploding snap with them but failing completely because of that thing that happened in fourth year
Remus trying to surreptitiously obtain their wands before they start seeing who can do the most complex spellwork without botching it up
setting things on fire
playing hide and seek with the invisibility cloak but passing out on the sofa, invisible, before one of them is ever found
just general merriment/being 1000x louder than normal
drunken songs about snitches and lasses
(I know this is so cliche and half of this stuff has already been done in various fics but it is still super adorable to think about.)
