Pride and Prejudice

"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us." - Jane Austen

My mom went to a psychic when I was 12 years old and was told the whole world will know your daughter’s name. But my mom thought that meant I was going to be kidnapped.

Fine, just write one in. If everyone did that the next election would look wildly different because our generation would matter to those who wish to run our government. http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2014/10/08/354187589/millennial-voters-are-paying-attention-so-why-don-t-more-actually-vote#GoVote

i am literally the only person in my history class who has been turning in work consistently all year and i just got an email from my professor saying that if i’m not feeling up to it i dont have to bother writing the 18 page final paper he assigned i just have to not tell anybody god is real

For a while i thought you meant that you had to not tell people that god was real.

This is why punctuation was created
