About Me

My name is Cassie. I’m 22, with a child’s heart, and a Pisces through and through. I have bright red hair, a couple piercings and tattoos. Working on more of the latter. I’m a hairstylist in training with an eclectic taste. To say I’m a tad neurotic would be a bit of an understatement. I have strong opinions and am incredibly stubborn at times. I love books, painting, photographs, cooking, bows and lace, braiding, dystopian books, and just making things-anything, when I can. I’m a Slytherin. I’m mostly vegetarian (working on it). Queer and my heart is still taken, even now. I’m a feminist who is still learning, still reading, and still trying to understand many things.I’m a bit uncanny and a bit awkward, and have far too much interest and ideas, and far too little energy and time.

Ask me anything.

    EVERYDAY THE SAME DREAM is an art game about alienation and refusal of labour. You are a faceless, unnamed man going about his business. The game has alternatives endings. Will you end up going to work and working in a little cubicle like every day, or will you take another route and do something different for once?

    OK LEMME TALK ABOUT EVERY DAY THE SAME DREAM.

    My history of game design teacher had us play through this game for ten minutes one class, and then played it on the projector.

    At first no one seemed to really get it, it just seemed like a daily life simulator with catchy music (the music carries the game beautifully, don’t play it on mute if you can help it).

    Then some of the other students began murmuring and questioning the point of the game after a few play throughs.

    Yes, there are different ways to end the day, but the game has only one true ending, which is reached after ending the day every way possible.

    Don’t judge the game by the minimalist graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. Every Day the Same Dream is a brilliantly crafted and for some a highly therapeutic experience.

    Things you do one day can and often will affect the following days, (your wife leaves you, the homeless man vanishes, you lose your job, etc.) Until you’re left with only one final option, which I won’t spoil.

    To paraphrase my professor, this game makes you look for a deeper meaning, not just in the game but also in yourself. It takes you to a place within yourself you need to be to understand yourself and how you interact with the real world.
    Play it all the way through and see for yourself.

    I think everyone needs to hear this

    holy shit. I just played it all the way through. just. wow.

    Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

    I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

    You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

    Average American Grading Scale:
    A+- 97-100
    A - 94-96
    A- - 90-93
    B- 80-89
    C- 70-79
    D- 60-69
    F- 59 and under

    And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
    A - 100-93
    B - 92-85
    C - 84-78
    D - 77-70
    F - 69 and below

    Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

    No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

    UK Grading Scale

    100-70: A

    69-60: B

    59-50: C

    49-40: D

    Below 40: F

    next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

    i’m gonna remind you

    that our “average” is your “A”

    Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
    Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.

    And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.

    I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day

    File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.

    So you know what I don’t get? Why people repeat words. (x)

    Grammar time: it’s called “contrastive reduplication,” and it’s a form of intensification that is relatively common. Finnish does a very similar thing, and others use near-reduplication (rhyme-based) to intensify, like Hungarian (pici ‘tiny’, ici-pici ‘very tiny’).

    Even the typologically-distant group of Bantu languages utilize reduplication in a strikingly similar fashion with nouns: Kinande oku-gulu ‘leg’, oku-gulu-gulu ‘a REAL leg’ (Downing 2001, includes more with verbal reduplication as well).

    I suppose the difficult aspect of English reduplication is not through this particular type, but the fact that it utilizes many other types of reduplication: baby talk (choo-choo, no-no), rhyming (teeny-weeny, super-duper), and the ever-famous “shm” reduplication: fancy-schmancy (a way of denying the claim that something is fancy).

    screams my professor was trying to find an example of reduplication so the next class he came back and said “I FOUND REDUPLICATION IN ENGLISH” and then he said “Milk milk” and everyone was just “what?” and he said “you know when you go to a coffee shop and they ask if you want soy milk and you say ‘no i want milk milk’” and everyone just had this collective sigh of understanding.

    Another name for this particular construction is contrastive focus reduplication, and there’s a famous linguistics paper about it which is commonly known as the Salad Salad Paper. You know, because if you want to make it clear that you’re not talking about pasta salad or potato salad, you might call it “salad salad”. The repetition indicates that you’re intending the most prototypical meaning of the word, like green salad or cow’s milk, even though other things can be considered types of salad or milk.
