im in one of those periods in my life where i cant focus on anything i cant finish an assignment i cant listen to one song for more than 5 seconds i cant sit through a tv show episode i cant finish a book i cant write a story
all i can do is stare blankly at the wall and wish i had something to do but everything i could do or want to do is just supremely unsatisfying
As if love, respect and common decency aren’t enough, economics once again proves to be a valid reason to legalize marriage equality.
A study by the Williams Institute at UCLA found that legalizing marriage equality in Oregon would prove a huge boost to the economy, generating more than $47 million in the first three years and creating almost 500 new jobs. Calculations were based on the estimate that 6,000 couples would marry in three years, spending more than $6,300 on their weddings.
This is super important to keep in mind now, as a federal judge will hear final arguments next week in the case challenging Oregon’s marriage ban.
One Oregon business owner said half of her weddings are for same-sex couples who hold their ceremonies in Vancouver.
“And all that money that should be here in Oregon is going to Washington. Most of these couple are Oregon couples wanting to get the legalities done and have same rights and privileges that everybody else has,” said Melissa Coe, a wedding and funeral officiate and the co-founder of Wedding Professionals United for Marriage.
Oh look. Another one. How many reasons do we need?
ok but a slytherin student from some hoity-toity pureblood family becoming ridiculously infatuated with muggle culture
and they just approach some muggleborn gryffindor who’s immediately on guard and waiting for some kind of insult but then the pureblood pulls a fucking nokia flip phone out of their robes and says “ALRIGHT, HOW DO YOU GET THIS TO WORK. I’VE BEEN PRESSING ON THE BUTTONS FOR THE PAST HOUR AND IT HASN’T DONE ANYTHING”
