God I love her. #caramel #dogchild

On the upside…

I have a wonderful, supportive, loving partner who constantly encourages me to do better. She’s the love of my life. Money wise, I’m fine. I have a beautiful puppy in my life, and joined a live action roleplay with a bunch of friends and am so excited to exercise my creativity. Also, while I have not been able to see my family (given and chosen) for months because of work, I know they are always there when I need them.

I guess it really is “who you know”, not “what you know”

I’ve been really sad these past couple of days. I recently got a job at Sprouts and was getting 40 hours a week, which is great because I need the money as a recent grad. I then talk about wanting to better myself by seeing what is out there that I can actually connect to profession wise, and all of a sudden my hours were cut in half. I hear excuses like “they are cutting everyone so they can pay for christmas” and “it’s only temporary” and “they are switch the crew to overnights and i know how you would not like them”. All this while they hire new people at part time and give them afternoon shifts rather than letting me take them (example of business getting rid of full time workers to not have to pay for benefits? probably.) and all while they hire back the person i was hired to replace and give them full time hours, just because they “like” them. I call capitalist bullshit. I call cooperation bullshit. I just call bullshit all and all.

Anyway, I’m looking for a better job that would hopefully pay more, but more importantly that I will be happy with. This atmosphere is not good for me.

Thanks for listening.

I’d say this is unexpected but…come on, anyone who would handcuff themselves to a visibly uncomfortable (perfect stranger) woman as a “joke” definitely has this level of hostility in them 

Don’t doubt yourself

When you get the feeling that you might have been subjected to subtle racism, trust your instinct. Don’t doubt yourself.

The people telling you “it’s probably nothing”, “you’re just oversensitive”, etc are interested in protecting their own feelings, appeasing their white guilt, etc.  

Your instincts, on the other hand, are interested in your survival. 

Trust yourself. Especially when others doubt you.

An Ohio special grand jury decided after days of deliberation that no officers will be charged in the shooting of 22-year-old John Crawford III, who was shot and killed inside a Beaverton Wal-Mart while carrying an air rifle sold at the store.

Special Prosecutor Mark Piepmeier announced Wednesday morning at a press conference that the jury found the Aug. 5 police shooting justified.

WHIO reports that this is the third time in the past five years that an Ohio grand jury has decided not to indict police in a case in which the shooting was highly questionable.

According to witnesses, Crawford was walking around the store carrying a gun that is similar to a BB gun at his waist. Police responded to calls of a man carrying a gun, and when they encountered Crawford, they claim, he didn’t respond to calls to drop the gun and was shot.

My blood is fucking boiling

HOW THE FUCK IS THE SHOOTING JUSTIFIED IF HE WASNT HARMED?

THERE WAS NO PHYSICAL THREAT TO ANY CIVILIAN

THE FUCKER THAT CALLED THE POLICE ADMITTED THE HE FUCKING LIED

What in the world? 

THIS IS BULLSHIT

MORE BULLSHIT

Vince Pope, attorney for the officers involved in the shooting, released the following statement: “I believe the grand jury’s decision, it’s absolutely the right decision, that the officers acted well within their training.” 

UPDATE @11:35 a.m.: A special grand jury has decided not to indict the officers in the Beavercreek Walmart shooting. The grand jury found officers were justified in their actions.

well trained officers vs. a toy gun

Video: NYC Activists Attempt To #FloodWallStreet

After being corralled, pepper sprayed and beaten by the NYPD, activists attempt to break down the barricades that blocked Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

This was not an act of violence or vandalism as some are suggesting, it was a brave act of civil disobedience.
