All you need to know about me is that I met Le1f and he complimented me on my jacket. I also cry about a lot of dead naruto characters.
and although her spit game raw as hell, she has a lot to learn before shes ready to slay everyone. but i believe nicki minaj can save the world
last week, i went in to interview for a paid summer position at a local LGBT rights, marriage equality, and education non-profit. the interview was going great until the man stopped me mid-sentence and told me i was actually interviewing for an unpaid internship. i told him that i was already overwhelmed with volunteer work and couldn’t afford to work for free. this is absolutely true, but he continued to ask me if i could work from home—for no pay. a few days later, i received a presumptuous email asking me to volunteer at a $200 plate dinner honoring TD Bank and some straight politicians. here’s how i replied:
Dear [NAME REMOVED],As I said in my interview (which I believed in good faith was for a paid position), I’m already overwhelmed with volunteer and pro bono work.More so, I am extremely uncomfortable with a $200 dinner rewarding straight people and corporations for meeting the bare minimum of human decency. In *my* queer community, $200 is a month’s rent or a minimum student loan payment. $200 is two doses of my friend’s hormone therapy, or 1/3 of a cheap laptop to access vital resources and opportunities. It is twice what I spend on groceries in a month.My generation is so disappointed by mainstream gay rights, we can’t even care enough to be angry. There’s just no place for those of us who can’t buy a ticket.Finally, I respect that Equality Forum is a non-profit, but you should also be aware that the majority of unpaid interns are young women. Unpaid internships are the gateway to wage gap and are wholly classist, no matter the experience or networking opportunities provided. This is New York Times’ editorial commentary, not just my feminist politics.Sincerely,Maddy CourtP.S. are you aware that TD Bank finances fracking that poisons the groundwater of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world? Is Lex Luthor up for an award too?
okay well get back on the wagon girl!! push through!
hey hey bud… youre going to china tho its chill :)
yeah thats great and stuff but im still having a hard time with myself i mean i just made “KPOP MIX VOL 2” for my car instead of working on an hour long presentation thats due tomorrow and i should probably be put to death
Like these things don’t happen by magic and I know that but I can not for the life of me make myself physically care
I’m just enormously upset and I can see myself keep dropping the ball and fucking up and not measuring up to the standards I’ve set for myself and I’m just really infuriated with myself because I keep being a useless bag of shit while wanting to end up on top of the world one day and ugh god I hate myself
