The 100 is one of those shows I don’t really blog about because the things you can easily sum up in a gifset (like ships) are the least interesting aspect of the show - it’s the STORY that rips my heart out and shreds it to pieces

dystopian future

a group of youths building a new society in uncharted dangerous territory! death lurks from outside as well as from within the group!

the remainder of humanity running out of oxygen on their last safe haven space station??

maybe killing people off to make the oxygen last longer?? PEOPLE SACRIFICING THEMSELVES TO CONSERVE OXYGEN FOR OTHERS?!

I’ve been bawling my eyes out during this show more often than not!

All nations joined together on one ship and their leader is a black man!

The people live in clear working vs leading classes and the lower class is bitter! 

The kids sent to the ground are criminals, which means most are from the lower class and most were in for small crimes of disobedience or even just having been an illegal, undocumented second child.

There are still those who are violent, though, and things turn Lord of the Flies pretty quick! They have to struggle with constructing law and order for their self preservation.

"People everywhere have their differences. In some places, the highborn frown upon those of low birth. In other places, the rape and murder of women and children is considered distasteful."


South Korea ferry disaster

Nearly 300 people were still missing Wednesday several hours after a ferry carrying 459, most of them high school students, sank in cold waters off South Korea’s southern coast, killing at least two and injuring seven, officials said.

There were fears, however, of a big jump in the death toll, as dozens of boats, helicopters and divers scrambled to rescue passengers who had been on the ferry traveling to the southern tourist island of Jeju. One passenger said he believed that many people were trapped inside the ferry when it sank. (AP)

"I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game."

I’ve already blogged this before but it basically sums up my entire philosophy much better than I ever could so here we are.

You guys, I can’t put this book down. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. It’s a fantasy YA set in a Spanish Catholic world, featuring the dark-skinned, overweight Elisa as a prophetic savior to her warring nation. If that doesn’t peak your interest I’m not sure what you’re doing on my blog.
