I’m doing homework for the next couple hours, “homework” being “a one-page comic about the Stonewall Riots” and I’m gonna be streaming for a couple hours to help keep myself focused. It’d be mighty helpful to have people stop by and chat and help keep me focused!!
thank you everyone for telling me im cute today, you’re all cute too (Ф∀Ф)
that shirt though. oh dear. I need it.
abort abort abort all the straight guys shopping at my work think that they are allowed to look at me and all the cute girls just think I’m being friendly because I’m one of them !!! this is weird and I hate it being read as cishet is UNCOMFORTABLE
you gotta know their address i think
but the whole point of wishlists is that you don’t know the other person’s address?? amazon says that you are supposed to be able to send it to them with no other information given to you but their name, city, and state. but i cannot figure out how and their help section is ridiculously complicated and unhelpful
does anybody have any experience w/ buying gifts for people on the internet thru amazon
i’m trying to figure out and it is seriously the most complicated thing i have ever seen and amazon’s help center is nooooot helping at all
how do u get a thing to just… ship to another person when you buy it. do i have to do something specific to make it so that amazon will let other people ship to me. what the fuck
money can’t buy happiness but it sure can buy an apartment, an internet connection, food, clothes, and healthcare. it sure is stressful for me to go to a class that causes me major anxiety and then realize i don’t even have enough money to reward myself with fast food for getting through the day. it doesn’t make me very happy to not have enough money to buy the art supplies i need to do my homework. it definitely isn’t great for my friends who are sick or who need to go to the dentist or who need glasses to be able to fucking see past their nose but who don’t have health insurance and can’t fork over several hundred dollars to go to the doctor. it kinda sucks the fun outta living when i have to miss out on parties and concerts and good times with my friends because leaving my house and doing stuff costs money in gas, food, drinks, door charges and show tickets.
"money doesn’t buy happiness" says people who have never struggled with not having enough money to buy the things that keep them happy lmfao
also: when i look around at most of the people i know who are full-time (or even part-time!) doing the thing that i love the most and want to do for the rest of my life— comics!!!!— they are not making a living wage by doing it and are living with someone else who helps to support them financially. making loads of money is a thing people do so that they have the means to do the things that they love doing. being passionate doesn’t change any of this.
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.
lmfao thank you for this response. i could add a lot more, but you pretty much nailed it right on the head.
