people better do this

Sad and happy?

So people have been sending me a couple articles floating around that I’m featured in. It’s so kind and flattering to know that people think what I’m doing is cool, but I’m not “queen of cosplay” or innovative or even the best at it. Like I’m grateful and happy people like it but also feel guilty that people do? I just started this maybe a year ago? If even that. I don’t want anyone to think that I think I’m hot stuff. I know that my outfits could be WAY better and that there are FAR more talented people doing the same thing that should receive the attention I’m getting and then some. I know many of mine have been simple. Like I feel bad that my rag tag outfits are being shared as opposed to someone that has a completely amazing cosplay that looks way more complex and bad@ss. I just thought it would be cool to do some cosplays of people from our childhood, ya know? Bring some nostalgia to your TL I thought. I didn’t think people would really think much of it.

I also feel uneasy that ppl are getting upset bc they feel ppl would call cultural appropriation if it were someone of a different race. Which you know, maybe they would. It wouldn’t be right and I wouldn’t agree with it if they’re just dressing up as a normal character with nothing to even do or connected with the actual culture and not doing anything offensive. Idk I just feel kind of weird and bad but excited and shocked? Idk I know it’s not that serious, but I still feel uneasy :(

We can have a better social structure, and eliminating the need to work for survival only allows for people to work for enrichment of their lives and other’s lives. People get bored doing nothing, people feel isolated and useless when doing nothing, we’re not going to have to force people to do things they’re interested in, they already want to do them. 

I have interests in mathematics, physics, computer science, sociology, and if our society actually wanted to work towards bettering itself people who are declared unfit to work could actually do what they can to benefit society without harming themselves to survive on meager incomes by working impossible hours.

This anon has spent all day debating me on whether or not I’m financially stable enough to be paid for my work and time. 

File under: people who need to find something better to do with their life.

anonymous asked:

Yeah, some people do it, for a better breathing. Since she's a singer, I'm sure the doctor recommended her to do it. I had a friend who did it cuz he has trouble to breath at night and he needed to breath with her mouth instead of nose, so the doctor recommended him to do a little fix and he did it.

ohhh! so it might help her on her breath while singing too or not? i know nothing about that

A guide to being a vocal citizen

For people wondering how to take action post-election of a racist demagogue (pulled from Twitter and cleaned up):

Make a spreadsheet or a file for your representatives with names, addresses to their offices, phone numbers, and contact forms. Put everyone there. Make a note in your calendar app to check in on issues once a month.

Pay attention to news. If you get angry, upset, or worried, seek support from friends but ALSO shoot these reps an email, too. Be courteous but firm and blunt. It’s a numbers game. Often we remain invisible because we don’t go to events and rallies and can’t be physically present. But we can attach our names to emails, we can write letters, we can be vocal. We don’t have to be invisible.

You can do this with your national reps, state reps, and local reps. If someone reps you anywhere, note them. Open a line and revisit it. It’s hard work and slow. One email at a time. One letter at a time. One call at a time. Emails are easy these days, so splurge every few months on a stamp and send a letter if you can. Put your humanity in front of these people. Flout it. Some won’t care, but others will. Change ONE mind and results can cascade.

Rural areas are bubbles full of bigotry and now it’s newly revealed. But we white people who live here have the clout and power! We can speak up when our reps say terrible things, and do terrible things, and vote terrible ways. We can go “I am disappointed in you.” It’s work, but as we’ve seen the last six months, it’s time for us to do that work. If someone goes “who are your reps” you gotta know. If you don’t know and you’re mad about this election, it’s time to create that file and keep it with you and use it.

The time for social media rants only is over. Or, do those, but maybe pull those threads out into a paragraph and send them to your reps. And don’t ONLY email or contact when things go badly. Also reach out when things go right. Even if they voted AGAINST something. Treat them like you would want to be treated if you were wrong or mistaken. But we’ve gotta reach out and let them know we’re here.

Anyway, I know this is hard work. If you need help collecting your reps, give me a ping via DM and I’ll help you get started.

We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, we’ve just begun
