Y’know people say shit about social media along the lines of ‘OMG no one cares what anyone had for breakfast’ and like.

I do? I care. I’m pretty sure a lot of people care. I want to hear that the people I care about are having delicious breakfasts or saw something odd at work or flirted with a cute barista. Or just any little thoughts they have that they feel are worth sharing.

I’ve always kind of assumed that’s how you’re supposed to feel about your friends.

Hahahaha, it’s funny because she won’t get the job, since she is overqualified, and young part-time workers are cheaper.

Anyone who thinks our generation are lazy, unambitious layabouts… need to fucking lay down and die.
The harsh reality is that we are over-ambitious. We are told we can’t get anywhere without a good college degree, so we study hard, and learn all we can, and walk away with a piece of paper and skills to back it up… then we fight to break into a workforce that is already filled.
Every year more people graduate college, and the competition keeps mounting. There are a finite number of jobs, and the big-business fat-cats are cutting every corner they can to get away with NOT hiring new people, in order to maximise profits for themselves.

Then there’s the other problem of people having to work MULTIPLE jobs to support their families. Because they’re not paid enough to live on just one, they need to work three jobs to make ends meet - and that means two more jobs are filled by one person.
I’m not saying it’s “greedy” to work multiple jobs - I’m saying it’s disgusting that people are paid so little in them that they need to.

How are we supposed to get jobs when the job market is so limited - there’s not even enough work for everyone to have ONE job, much less two or three.
And the people who maintain the unemployment system have no idea how bad it really is - because they’ve had their jobs for twenty fucking years or more.

The only big company I know of that hired a graduate from my college did so because he invented a system that would cut their work down by almost 50%. That is what you need to do to get a job around here.

I have applied for every job I am qualified for.
I have applied for jobs I am almost qualified for.
I have applied for entry-level retail and fast-food jobs.
I have gotten nowhere.

And now I have the added bonus of being unable to work much at all due to my health issues. The irony of this is that I will be better off on disability - I will have the freedom to stop searching for dead-end temporary jobs, and be able to take the time to work on my own games and such. Albeit slow and in small bursts.

Exactly.
Also, employers want relevant experience, even for entry level jobs. Most job postings for waitressing require 2 years minimum of waitressing experience. I’m not even talking about fancy restaurants, I mean bussing tables in a pizza bar.

The problem of breaking into the job market at all is something seriously fucked up. No-one wants to hire an 18 year old when they can hire a 14 year old for the bare minimum. No-one will hire a 21 year old who is legally required to be paid a full adult wage if they can get anyone younger.

Getting into university was so important that I couldn’t even consider paid employment until finishing year 12. When I started applying for entry level fast food jobs at age 17? Rejection after rejection. If I got any feedback at all it was “Sorry, you don’t have any relevant experience” or ”We can’t know you’ll be able to cope with the work, since you’ve never worked before.”

AH, yes! How did I ever forget to mention the “experience barrier” - everyone trying to break into a job has to contend with this.

They want to take on someone with lots of experience - 2 years, 4 years, sometimes 6 or more.
I see things like “4 years, and you must have worked on at least Multi-Million Dollar Film, or AAA Game.”

Now how on earth am I going to do that if I can’t even get my foot in the door at fucking McDonalds?

And you know why they can put “2 years minimum experience” on their ads? Because there are plenty of people out there looking for those jobs with 2, 4, 8 years of experience in that role who need a job desperately.

If you want to work, you basically have to know someone in the company. If your parents run the joint, you can get in there, and get that experience. My sister has no trouble finding work now, because she has a couple years of experience - she got her first job through a combination of lying, and making very good friends with a number of people who worked there, by going to parties.
She barely made it through tenth grade.
I graduated 12th grade and college.

She has a job.
I don’t.

The system is broken, and only maintains a broken status quo. It puts barriers up to the outsiders, and puts minimal value on the insiders.
Humans are expendable assets - if they fire you, there’s a queue of people waiting to do your job.

Then there are places that exploit internships.

Some companies bring students in to work for a month for free - the old “pay you in experience” trick. Problem is, they’re not giving you the level of experience you need to secure a job, and there are dozens more students and graduates who want to get those unpaid internships, So they can just keep getting work from desperate students and grads for free.

It’s like all those artists who get asked to do something “for the exposure” - the exposure is an empty promise, and they really just want you to work for free.

The big CEOs want to keep their billion-dollar bank accounts floating. And they don’t care who has to suffer and die for that to happen.

If you wonder why so many young people are trying to make a name for themselves on the internet - “social media stars” and whatnot - it’s because it’s about the only chance we have to do something and be noticed.
We now have platforms where we can put ourselves out there, and try to make money based on our talents.

Is it a long-shot?
Absolutely.

But it’s about the only chance we have.

This right here explains every thing read closely children cause it’s important

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

oh so it wasn’t at all completely unreasonable of me to think they actually stole my wonderbolts hoodie concept. lol

oh well, all the more reason I don’t buy shit there.

Please don’t allow Hot Topic to cash in on MSPA.

One of my dear friends has been struggling with a string of low spoons days lately, which inspired me to create this spoons meter so they could quickly and wordlessly convey how they were feeling that day. It works on a scale of 0 to 5, where five spoons means: “Hey, I’m feeling good! Let’s go out and see people and kick ass and crush the patriarchy!” and zero spoons means: “Spoon levels critically low - DO NOT ENGAGE”

I figured this might be useful for other spoonies struggling with chronic illness or disability, so I’m making it freely available! The meter itself is small enough to fit nicely in a blog description or anywhere else you may wish to conspicuously display your current spoons level.

You can download the full set here. It’s totally free to use (although, of course, credit and a note to let me know would be lovely!) Even if you don’t need this, please consider reblogging in case one of your followers might find it useful.

May all your spoons be polished and your silverware drawer be full! =3

have you guys seen this yet?

Oh Hans.

oh no please im not supposed to feel bad for him but

Okay first if all how dare you

No but like, this would have been an incredible backstory. Especially with the whole being the youngest sibling thing and the always forgotten about stuff, it would have been great to see this played out in the movie. Like, even at the beginning. Imagine a short scene at a ball before the accident happened where Hans’ family is there and Hans tugs on his mom’s dress because he’s too small to reach the sandwiches on the table and his brothers won’t help him and his mom just laughs with the other royals who then walk away and then she leans over and says this.

MEANWHILE ELSA AND ANNA ARE USING ELSA’S POWERS TO GET THE CHOCOLATE DOWN FROM THE DESSERT TABLE COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF THE CHILD TRAUMA/ABUSE HAPPENING ACROSS THE BALLROOM

This was one of the things I was annoyed about in the movie, actually.  Of course, because Anna fell in love with another dude, Hans has to be evil.  That’s the way that Disney (and other kids shows, let’s be fair) ties up ‘love triangles’.  People can screencap frames where Hans blinks wrong all they want, but I thought it was really out of left field- and yet 100% predictable because Kristoff exists and it’s an easy way to tie off that thread.

You know what I would have loved?  I would have loved a Hans who wanted to love Anna.  Like, a Hans who had to marry her and be with her for power reasons, inferiority complex reasons, literally ALL THE SAME REASONS, but instead of being completely, predictably, villainous in it, I would have liked it if he wanted to love her, but he just didn’t.  Just couldn’t feel that way.  If he leaned in and kissed her and nothing happened.

He pulls away, Anna looks up at him in horror, and it’s still a lie and still a betrayal, but instead of having the black and white Hans and Kristoff, you’ve got a little more of a human element- motivated by greed and ambition and therefore still somewhat reprehensible, but ultimately sympathetic.  More assassins from the weasel guy try to kill Elsa, Hans maybe helps them out of spite because he can’t marry Anna now, and at the end of the movie, he goes home to a family who doesn’t have space for him- and maybe Anna and Elsa ask him to visit and he goes to escape from that and finds friendship rather than the romantic love he was looking for but he realizes that all he wanted was someone to appreciate him and HAPPY ENDINGS FOR EVERYONE OKAY why not that Disney, huh.
