Gogol Bordello - Start Wearing Purple
James Madison University, a well-known public university in my hometown of Harrisonburg, is handling the ‘worst case of sexual assault’ in their history by allowing the perpetrators to graduate and banning them afterward.
Meanwhile, the student who was assaulted lost her financial aid when her grades slipped while trying to deal with bringing her rapists to justice and had to leave school.
So even when there is absolute definitive proof on tape of an assault, the victim is paying the biggest price and the perpetrators are allowed to stay at school.
This is not right.
Good morning from The Shoebox!!!
First night/morning in our new place!!! Ahh!!!
I live with a boyyyyyyy ;P
We love our adorable little place. Just trying to get all moved in bit by bit so it’ll feel more like our place. I’m currently waiting for the electrician AND the plumber because we have no hot water at the moment (which is why it looks like something died on my head) and we need to have hook ups put in for our washer/dryer so we can actually have clean clothes. Ya know, the little things ;P
I just can’t even wrap my head around the fact that this is my life. We’re really living together. We’re doing this. I could not possibly be happier.
:D :D :D
(also, my alumni spirit is quite strong this morning. Still bleeding purple, obviously)
If you guys have any questions about JMU, I (along with countless of other JMU bloggers) am more than happy to answer them! Congratulations for being accepted into the Disneyworld of colleges!
Anonymous said: hey peacey-starry, I have a q... did you get a degree in something diff from JMU then went back to do nursing?
I did indeed. I got my Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences with a concentration in Human Sexuality from JMU and now I’m studying Nursing at a small community college in southwestern VA :) Hopefully after I get my RN I’ll be done with school for a bit, but eventually I’d like to become a Nurse Midwife :)

I don’t even know how my school is this perfect
Someone once told to never graduate, that it was a trick. Now that I’ve graduated, I realize how serious her words were.
