Why is being seen as a tourist such a bad thing? I’m sitting here with a map of Manhattan trying to plan my upcoming trip to New York City with my mom and I’m giggling to myself because I know how silly I’ll look with this map but I don’t really care. And then I realized that people go to great pains to rid themselves of such maps lest they be labeled a tourist, and that “tourist” has almost become a bad word in our society. People become almost embarrassed to admit they’re taking part in something “so touristy” and even more embarrassed to admit they enjoyed it. And to a degree I get it. You don’t want to appear lost and confused and make yourself a target, or be insensitive to the world you’re exploring. But since when did getting out and exploring become such a bad thing? Aren’t we supposed to get out and see the world and be in awe of what we’ve never witnessed before? We can’t be locals everywhere we go. I guess what I’m trying to say is we’re encouraged to travel, but not be tourists. If someone makes the effort to go out and see the world, who cares what fashion they’re doing it in. At least they’re getting out there.
I am not a crazy one direction fan. In fact, I wouldn’t even call myself a fan. But this picture was perfect. You go Paul Rudd

This is incredibly true in my life
For as much as I’m paying for a small liberal arts education… It shouldn’t be this difficult to take required classes.
