The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of

The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day

The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem

The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free

The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education

The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people

The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job

The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day



the first step towards confidence is not being afraid to be ugly

once you get over the fear of being unattractive and stop equating beauty with other good things in life (friends, love, happiness) it’s a lot easier to love yourself unconditionally

your job is not to sit around and be pretty and easy on everyone else’s eyes

your job is to do whatever the fuck you want and look however the fuck you want while doing it

This is how I got confident

Wisdom teeth coming in is just the worst pain. And I’m so hungry but it hurts to eat.

And I don’t want to eat anything because my teeth hurt and goddamn if we don’t have ice cream

The left side of my mouth hurts. Mostly on top though I have some pain around my bottom two teeth. At first if thought it was from clenching my teeth a lot. Then I panicked and thought I have some sort of gum disease. But now (I’m not sure) but I think it’s my wisdom teeth pushing against my other teeth and causing pain? Because they’re already partially out. And it starts at the last tooth and just radiates forward. Eating hurts, touching it hurts, it just hurts.

Having a bad spout of sadness and frustration. I’ve got a lot on my plate and it’s getting hard to handle so now I have to figure out what is going to work best for me and my family and go from there.



Help spread the FACTS about the workers who are surviving on minimum wage in this country!

I thought it was Monday so I fixed the store up in prep for close like 30 minutes ago and then realized I’m here until 10.

Send all the birthday cards!

I was just listening to the radio (103.3) and they were talking about Danny’s birthday wish! If you can please send this little guy a birthday card.

One thing this post left out was that he likes Legos and Mario!


Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse muslims of it in order to justify their islamaphobia?
