My headphones would get awkwardly stuck on someones bag, and I would almost trip and cause them to fall over. And if that wasn’t any more ridiculous, I would have to stop and try to untangle them from the bag for two insanely long minutes while I’m surrounded by a shit ton of people waiting for their trains at Penn and watching me struggle.
“We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.”—Carson Mccullers (via beautyisanillusion)
“When you live in a poor neighborhood, you are living in an area where you have poor schools. When you have poor schools, you have poor teachers. When you have poor teachers, you get a poor education. When you get a poor education, you can only work in a poor-paying job. And that poor-paying job enables you to live again in a poor neighborhood. So, it’s a very vicious cycle.”—Malcolm X (via blacklikemehreen)
There are two Puerto Rican paralegals at the law firm I intern at. I’ve been talking to the man, but I just started to talk to the woman, Yvette, today. Through the conversation she found out I was an unpaid intern and she got so upset. Like actually really upset, it surprised me lol. After she walked away still talking about how pissed that made her, she comes back to me ten minutes later asking me to send her my resume. She got in contact with her old company that finds part time temp work for paralegals, and told them about me. I was so shocked she went out of her way to do this for me. I told her she didn’t need to do that, and I was so thankful. Her reply: “we got to help each other out, and you deserve it. Don’t mention it.”
that’s really creepy and inappropriate of her. honestly put all of it in an envelope and return it to her, informing her sternly that while the thought behind is kind, you do not want nor need her money.
i’m just so squicked out by this, bc it reminds me of all these stories were women take advantage of younger men by endearing themselves to them first. And it’s also demeaning bc it’s like she’s saying I don’t need the money, you do.
Just give her back the money William, before I have to pop her in the mouth cause now I’m just annoyed the more I think about it. lmao
hahaa she’s not taking advantage of me! She’s from the South and so damn sweet with her accent! She wouldn’t do that! Like literally everyday, she gives me a heart to heart and she cries, and I want to hug her but don’t because that could count as sexual harassment in the office, right? hahaa. And yea, I feel odd that she keeps on giving me money, but I know she’s doing it out of the kindness of her heart (from her stories, she is always giving money to people). Nonetheless I still feel awkward accepting it. I tried giving it back to her, and she refuses to touch it! I but it on her desk when she walked away for a second, and when I left, she put in back on mine when she left for the day! I’m just gonna wait till the end to give it back to her so there’s no one in hell she can give it to me again hahahaa
Also, thanks for being concerned and trying to protect me, Ijeamaka :) lmao
So there’s this woman at the law firm who I work a lot around, and she’s the sweetest person ever. We talk all the time, she brings up food from the kitchen to me; she is just so kind! The thing is, she is always talking to me about her relationship troubles. I have no idea why she picked me, but…
take it and run, literally haha
I feel so wrong taking her money! hahahaa I haven’t even touched any of the money she gave me so far. I’m thinking of buying her a gift with that money when I leave. Is it weird to buy someone a gift with their own money? hahaa

The thing is, she is always talking to me about her relationship troubles. I have no idea why she picked me, but she asks me for advice and I give her my two cents. I definitely don’t think it’s a lot, but she is always thanking me for talking to her about it.
For over two weeks now, she has been giving me money. I try to refuse it, i really do, but she literally throws it at me or shoves it in my pockets! I keep telling her I don’t want it, but she keeps on saying “Honey, I want to though. Get yourself something nice.” I have no clue what to do, and how to make her stop. I feel so wrong taking this woman’s money!
Illegal being turned into a noun is by far the most ruthlessly effective way to dehumanize and demonize an entire group of people, which is why it is propagated by mass media and politicians to vilify these people as outsiders and aggressors of the state to justify the systematic abuse and exploitation these people are faced with on a daily basis.
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria will be considered for relief…
My sister, Ashley, told me earlier today she got asked to be a makeup artist for Broadway Bares! She told me it’s an annual show that raises money for AIDS-related causes. The look on her face made me so happy to see how excited she was to do makeup for such a big show.
I googled to learn more about it, found a website site, and this is what I saw:
Hahahaa definitely an interesting site to see hahahaa. She definitely forgot to mention she was doing a burlesque show.
