Then there’s Chiune Sigihara, the Japanese diplomat who gave out more than 6,000 visas to Jewish people, saving them,…
He is obviously a hero, but he was also in a position to do an incredibly heroic thing. It’s easy for all of us regular people, who have small jobs, bureaucratic jobs, where everything is very compartmentalized and it’s easy to think, “Well, what I do doesn’t really matter, and I don’t want to lose my job. I need my job. All I do is this one thing, and that’s not so bad.”
Scholars have proven that the Nazis accomplished what they did by compartmentalizing genocide– the end wasn’t visible from the standpoint of the idk let’s say, person who had to report a potential Jew to his boss. It’s easy to fall into the trap of, “Well, I’m just doing my job, and what I’m doing isn’t that bad.”
But fascism depends on people just doing their jobs. And that’s why I suggest it’s not a bad idea for people to begin considering what they will do if they lose their job for refusing to cross a line.
I also think it would be great if we could come up with some kind of mutual assistance fund to help people who lose their incomes because of resistance.
Also!! The past two days I’ve been getting some pretty nasty messages? Not mean messages, just SUPER sexualized messages and like. Just to let y'all know, I’m not into it. Idk what you’re trying to achieve, but like? if you want to make me make go “yikes” and delete a message really fast then you’ve accomplished your goal?
You did it, Tiffany Hwang. Not once did you ever give up, and look at what you’ve accomplished. How lovely of you to want nothing but the best and perfect music for SONEs. You were not alone

I went out and came back in and went back out and came back in and now I’m like… what do I even want from going out. Will going out be good for my life in any way. Will going back out do anything that going out before failed to accomplish. Doubt it! So I’m just doing some skincare and going to bed. Idk I had fun already and I have shit to do tomorrow

I feel so stuck with my life tbh,,,I see all these people younger than me who have accomplished so much or are amazing artists or singers/song writers or acting and I just feel,,,,idk,,,i want to do more with my life but I don’t know
I’m just really confused about who I am as a person and I feel like time is running out for me?? I honestly feel like I’ve lost myself and I don’t know who I am

Hey friends, Mass Poetry wants to catch up past participants in the U35 poetry readings via distance interviews that they’ll put on the internet and I’m looking for some outside opinions on some of the questions.
1.) Has my writing changed in the past year and a half and if so how?? O_o
2.) They want a new poem from me idk….do people have any opinions whether any of my recent poems are worth giving them? (If you search my “original poetry” tag i guess you can look at some of what i’ve been working on lately)
Also… ugh, this is a good opourtunity but i feel like i’ve done absolutely nothing in the past year and a half, apart from that really cool production of macbeth i was in. I’ve spent a lot of time doing background work for my stories but nothing i can really report on as accomplishments. Lately i’ve just been trying to survive and figure out how to help get the world off its current collision course. I did submit my poetry to a handful of magazines but no new takers. I’ve got pretty much nothing to show for myself. I can’t believe it’s been so long, and i have done so little
5) Do you or have you ever had a heart dog? 16) Do your dogs compete in any sports? 51) What's something that you wanted to accomplish with your dog and did?
5) Do you or have you ever had a heart dog? idk, i’m not really a huge fan of the term i guess. my dogs are all very different and i feel differently about all of them but not in a way that one means more to me than the other? :s
16) Do your dogs compete in any sports? yes! ellie used to compete in agility, mostly AKC and she has a couple USDAA Qs. she loves to practice but ring stresses pretty bad most of the time, so she’s fully retired from competing at this point.
zim is my SPORTS MACHINE. we compete in AKC and USDAA agility in masters and he loves everything about it. we finally started getting our shit together this past fall, but now are on agility/training/everything hiatus due to health issues. but HE WILL BE BACK.
with root i’m planning to start agility foundations this spring with the intention to compete eventually ! and i’m also looking forward to training for bite sports (vague because i dunno whether it’ll be IPO or french ring… more interested in ring but it seems pretty nonexistent around here), and maaaaaybe compete …
51) What’s something that you wanted to accomplish with your dog and did? well most recently iwashoping to get zim’s AXJ and AX titles this fall so we could compete at european open tryouts in dec. he’s a speedy guy but i’m not a great handler so lol. consistency is not rly our thing. 3 Qs needed for each and we did it in 9 days of showing. he is the best.
ok, but tbh, wanting 2 b happy in dis world is unrealistic. ain’t even what i want anymore. i just wanna b destructive n fuck up n not give a fuck abt anything. i think accomplishing goals, being where i want 2 b is boring. but that must be bc i dont even have any goals anymore lmao. it’s just….idk. it’s 2 clean 4 me, working for years just to start living a steady life & ppl rush thru that shit, n start living like that @ 24. i wud already b bored n fall into depression again bc of how bored i am. evrything depresses me, y’all. i cant b happy. like i just find shit 2 b sad abt. im a sad ass bitch n that’s the tea!!!

it’s so irritating to me when people get mad @ taylor for celebrating her accomplishments and being excited like would you rather her not care at all and act like it was no big deal??? AN EMMY IS A BIG DEAL and i think it’s so cute that after winning so many awards she still gets excited by each one omg she’s cocky if she celebrates and she’s cocky if she acts bored by it so idk what anybody wants from her honestly get out of the bitter barn and play in the hay
it’s weird that aos is promoting skyeward in interviews more now than they ever had. more than when ward was alive. they actively avoided those conversations then, and now i’m seeing article after article on “the future of skyeward” and ward is DEAD.
i don’t know what to think. what sort of a weird bait is this when we all know ward is dead? what are they trying to accomplish? is ward going to come back to life or something, is that what is this implying? which isn’t outside the realm of possibility given that the whole basis of aos is coulson being brought back from the dead, and hive’s victims have been known to be saved and brought back from the dead.
idk. i feel like this is too good to be true, but also not unrealistic. the only thing that makes me suspicious is that i genuinely believe the writers hate ward’s character and don’t want him back. but if that wasn’t the case i could believe that this isn’t the end for ward and skyeward. idk. i’m feeling confused and jaded.
if skyeward really has no future, PLEASE stop writing articles about it. please. it’s mean and misleading.
