Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
I’m sorry but this post is exactly what someone would say when they have no idea what they’re talking about. Saying what you said might be easy, but the reality is not.
So many people are poor in this country. They simply cannot afford to have this type of mentality. They need to be able to pay for a ton of things. Food, electricity/gas bills, rent/mortgage, etc. It DOES take a ton of money to be able to live comfortably.
I know your post is mostly geared towards high schoolers who are constantly told what they should do with their lives. But so many high schoolers live below the poverty line. Not everyone has parents who are both able to support them throughout college and who tell them to “do something else” with their life, you know? When people think that, “oh, I’m just going to chase my passions and not care about money as much,” it’s harmful and risky. Because if you don’t think about your financial situation, it is VERY easy to get in a ton of debt or lose so much money that you can’t follow your dreams anymore. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but you need it to stay alive.
It’s great to follow your dreams and work hard, but it’s equally important to take money/your financial situation into account as well. And by that I don’t mean putting money second on the list, but make money as equally as important as working hard to follow your dreams. It’s rash/idiotic to just “do what you love” and not care (as much) about the stuff that’ll support you throughout life.
Fucking sweet Crowley
I don’t know about all along, but now? Yes. What Sam did to him last season changed him, they’ve been hinting at it all season. I hope this isn’t a theme they just let slip away.
Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
Rugrats was deep.

The pure fact that this doesn’t even need a title or a description or anything speaks volumes. I mean look at the number of notes this has. There are so few people who don’t recognize it. And the song itself just gives you chills. It’s so magical.
