- I FINALLY GOT MY LAPTOP BACK! But my laptop needs some serious defragmenting and cleaning, though.
- After some serious carbo-loading during my Malaysia trip, I’ve been practically cleaning up my body. I’ve been eating more vegetables, and I made a decision to stop eating chips too.
- I planned my first semester schedule already. I have a lot of breaks, but I should use them wisely.
- I should be more creative when it comes to a lot of things. No, seriously.
Booksale sells some of the best magazines ever. Got my first copy of i-D with Lena Dunham on the cover!
At first I’m like:
Then I’m like:
I still get grammar slip-ups from time to time.

New Vampire Weekend songs are amazing! Definitely recommend.
Some photos from my Malaysia trip!
Most of the time, I think I’m cooler on Twitter than in real life.
I love this video for a number of reasons:
1. Jimmy Fallon is the master of disguise. He can transform into anything, even a fourteen-year old girl.
2. Channing Tatum can do anything—- He can dress up as a One Direction-obsessed fourteen-year old girl without any glitch!

It’s time to get pissed. The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally immune government spies just passed the House.
We expected CISPA to pass; that’s why this spring, we’re going to organize the largest online privacy protest in history to make sure CISPA is gone for good.
And, in response to (Republican) Rep. Mike Rogers’ accusation that CISPA opponents are just “14 year-old tweeter[s] in the basement”, we thought we’d also challenge Rep. Rogers to get on live national television and debate a 14 year-old in a basement on CISPA. The search for the 14 year-old begins. Are you or do you know a 14 year-old who could totally school a congressman on this issue?
This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That’s why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen.
Does this remind you of something? Yep, this is the exact position we were in with SOPA last year. Then the Internet rose up and we made history with the SOPA strike.
Join the largest online privacy protest in history to make sure CISPA goes the same route as SOPA and doesn’t become the law that breaks the 4th Amendment. Are you in?
CISPA threatens our most basic rights. Privacy is important not just for our security but for our rights to freedom of expression. The giant tech companies that stood with Internet users against SOPA are not going to help us this time (but some of the large sites like Mozilla, Imgur, and Reddit are all against CISPA and we love them).
Only a massive grassroots outcry will stop this bill. We’re starting to build the tools. But we need your help.
Can you share the flyer below on social media? And tell everyone you know to sign up to join the protest?
