I have decided that, “Oh great! I’m collecting donations, too. For my student loan.” is the perfect response.
Whenever I see people on campus asking students to donate money to some cause, I find myself enraged. I don’t mean the one time donation things, where you put your change in a jar. I mean groups like Amnesty International who ask students for regular monthly donations.
Most students are living hand-to-mouth and in debt. Spend your time asking the people who have money to donate money; stop bothering those who don’t. They don’t even respect “I’m a student” anymore; no, my peers have to interject with “are you $30/50/80,000 in debt?” before they’ll be left alone.
Goddamnit. Spend your time bugging the Bay Street suits.
It turns out that lugging 40 lbs of groceries home after a workout is not the brightest idea.

THE ONE ON THE RIGHT IS SMILING MY FUCKING HEART
Gravity may not be the best storyline; it’s probably not even close to the best film. But it is hard to deny that Dr. Ryan Stone’s journey back to earth isn’t an incredible message to young women/girls. Particularly in combination with the final scene of the film, which for once felt like it wasn’t shot for the male gaze. It was a strong, renewed woman, of her own vigour, taking her first stand on Earth after so long at zero gravity and having been through so much.
Note, as well, that the other characters were two highly trained men, who had “reasons” to live by our daily standards, while Dr. Stone would typically be seen as having nothing. A female scientist with little training, arguably laughed at by one of the other men on the mission (“including vacation time?”), whose street (space) smarts and willpower are ultimately what determines whether she lives (ignoring the issue of luck for all characters).
I fucking love this movie.
If others who consider themselves to be feminists have seen this film, please let me know your thoughts on Dr Ryan Stone’s character? I am genuinely interested.
