So true right now. It is pretty terrible.
Check out his theory on Twitter. So much of the finale came together so quickly and seamlessly, for someone dying and having trouble standing at times. E.G.,the cops in the beginning just disappearing, the keys, that car getting out of that much snow and across the country, Badger appearing out of nowhere, the machine gun (not chemistry), getting by the cops at Skyler’s when they knew he was coming. Then getting by them again at the Nazis’. Mind=blown. He died in the car….I am onboard with this.
Homeland 3x01 - Peter Quinn
"More importantly, what is Quinn doing? Just sitting around naked and sweaty, making an IED in some basement somewhere. How come? Who the fuck cares? Reread that sentence and tell me why any more information is required than that. Naked Quinn, building bombs and sweatin’ up a storm. Done.” — Jacob Clifton on the Homeland premiere
Quinn distracts me from the whatever else was happening. And now he is out in the field? With no shirt??? ON A MOTORCYCLE? KILLING PEOPLE ALL ASSASSINY?! I don’t want him to die ever, but I will have a hard time keeping up with why Carrie is freaking out, why I wish Dana was dead, why Saul is being a dick and all those crazy name dudes in terroristy activities.
So is Beyonce black or white?
Beyonce is gold.
How important is money?
Wealth is important. Money is just paper.
What do you think of Sheryl Sandberg and her ‘Lean In’ book?
I think it’s the literary equivalent of vanilla scented hand sanitizer, but hey, kudos to Sheryl for squeezing…
Lots of great tips this round…

It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.
You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.
But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.
Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.
This totally justifies every excuse I’ve been giving myself from not doing that thing I’m supposed to do.
Wow, it all makes sense.
