Stars can only be visible in the darkness,
Fear is always changing in
And I, I, I can poison these eyes
And I, I, I feel so alive

When I was first starting the whole process of finding applying to colleges, I was blessed enough to attend one of the best charter schools in the country, with several great teachers and a CAP Advisor that put so much time and effort into helping us figure out what we were going to do with our futures. I know not everyone is so lucky to have access to the same sort of people or resources, so here’s a long masterpost of many useful links and lots of great information you can use. If you ever want advice or to talk about college, feel free to message me!

Just a reminder here; they are grabbing IP adresses.  This means they can find out where you live, or easily bypass any security on your computer or device and hack you.
Please, be safe. Pass this on so others know they may intend to do something with the IPs and be careful, if you think you’re being too careful, you’re not.
It’s not too far off to say your best safety measure is even to even leave tumblr/go on hiatus until this is done with.
(Blacked out most of the IP for security reasons.)

FACT: Don’t click any of the blogs that are posting the triggering posts, they more than likely have IP trackers on their blog. That’s one of the easiest ways they’d of gotten the IPs, though hacking is also an option to grab them.


reminder that tumblr staff has made it easy to report posts without having to go to the blog in question.

I have an idea for a social experiment. I started using OKcupid a month or so back, and in order to see what other guys were doing, to see what I was “Up against”, I asked a female friend of mine to join up as well, and send me the sort of messages she received. Unsurprisingly, things got pretty creepy pretty quickly, and I felt bad for having convinced her to do it. So i gave her a picture of my face doing something odd, and told her she could send it to anyone who was particularly creepy.
It started out as a joke, but then she told me that she had sent it to at least 20 guys, and they had fucked right off immediately, either thinking she was a man, that she was “Spoken for”, or just because they didn’t expect it. It was both highly amusing and depressing that my face had become a sort of symbol of her ability to say “NO” and be listened to, but it gave me an idea.I’m interested to see if other women who are also having these troubles on the internet, and are tired of dealing with them rationally and instead just want to fuck around, would be game to also send that pic of my face to unwanted admirers. My last name is Middleditch, so perhaps we can call it “Getting Ditched” (Or MiddleDitched, I’m not that fussed).
Anyway, here is the picture, I hope you consider this worthy of your time. And perhaps, if this somehow takes off, I’ll get to see more responses from unsuspecting Fellows.
All the best
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. YES. You are an excellent human being for thinking of this and being cool with your photo getting sent out to creeps and douchenozzles. 
READERS! Consider sending the above photo the next time you get an awful OKC message, and pretty please tell me how it goes. 
I love this, thank you for sharing!

Ahahahaha yes!
