Hey. I'm emma.
Let's have a sleep over and talk about (how much we hate) boys.
How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
no but lets be real here
gavin and the ramseys is the real otp
You know, Millie is so little that she probably doesn’t remember anything from before they had a Gavin.
Think about it. She was born in 2005 and Gavin stayed with them in 2008.
Millie’s always had a Gavin.
so in celebration of me getting five hundred dollars from my mothers taxes, and for the fact that i’ve also gained a bunch of new followers i decided it was time for a giveaway.
there will end up being two winners and they can pick from;
and most likely a bag of your favorite candy. also i know not all shown above is guyish, so if you’re a guy and you win you can pick something for the same value(must still be that fandom related). also you will get what is seen above, besides the guys, or if really hate one of the items.
- gotta be following me
- have to be comfortable giving me your address
- you can reblog with a side blog and or giveaway blog, i don’t mind
- you can like/reblog as much as you like, but be aware of your followers
ends march 20 2014!
(also aren’t my editing skills amAZING sarcastic laughter)
Even as much of town has been in flux, listeners, there is also much that has remained solid.
It’s hot here, for instance. It’s a desert.
There are still lights in the sky above the Arby’s, and we still understand them.
The sun is still rising – and setting – loudly…on most days.
But, nearest and dearest to my heart, among all the constants in life, is WZZZ, our local numbers station, broadcasting from that strange and tall antenna built out back of the Abandoned Gas Station on Oxford Street. It still broadcasts a monotone female voice reading out seemingly random numbers, interspersed with chimes, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
No transfer in ownership of most of the town, nor unrest in the streets, nor declared war by a tiny civilization under a bowling alley could change how it operates.
Until, well, until today.-

shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
