actually that was far from the best I could come up with, I just don’t feel like having ligament discussions often because 90% of the time people pull the “You’re only 15, im smarter than you because I’ve been alive longer” oh look you’re doing that too! I understand the issue just fine, I’ve grown up with money issues my whole life. Yeah, “Trying to educate her” Because most of the people totally aren’t calling her a stupid bitch who doesn’t know anything. Maybe if people tried to have real discussions this wouldn’t have become a big thing, but no, people have to act like power tripping a-holes, oh again kinda like you! So how about you sit down and think about why you have to send me multiple anon messages telling me how little I understand about life even though you know nothing about me.
Or you could choose a career before you have children, if you have health problem with need for expensive medication that must be prioritized there is government assistance for that. Don’t get me started on heath problems! Unless you have the possibility of your throat closing every time you eat, don’t talk to me about heath problems. Just because things work against you doesn’t mean you cant strive to do what you love. You can have a job that makes you money to fund you well you work on developing your career. Thankfully we have people like you who find the need to insult people on anon because they don’t want people to know who they are because they are being so ignorant, and need to point out how young I am because apparently that makes them better than me even though I can say my opinions openly without worrying that people might know who I am and that im most likely a better person than you even at my age.
Me: It’s late, I should go to bed
Tumblr: But what about posts and art and asks and followers and such
Deviantart: And that thing you said you would finish and post
Goggle: And that research you said you would do
E-mail: Look at all these you haven’t replied to
Notebook: You said you would finish that chapter today
Backyard: You never finished the fence
Sketchbook: This guy doesn’t have a face yet, you should fix that
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
I like how it goes from “you like knitting?” to “own a yarn shop!” like that’s something people can just do.
Between business licenses and registration, initial inventory, deposit and up-front payments for the commercial property lease, promotion and branding, and other startup costs, you’re looking at a minimum six-figure investment - and that’s assuming you already have the necessary contacts and skills to handle a small business startup all on your lonesome and can safely afford to gamble on pissing those six figures down the toilet when faced with the reality that two-thirds of small business startups fail within the first two years.
You know who can do all that?
People who already have money.
This poor girl is getting so much hate for this awesome comic. This comic it so true, if you love something you can find a way to make money with it. And no, not only ‘rich bitches’ can do that. If youre to damn lazy to apply yourself and find away to do what you love, then you don’t deserve to do what you love. I’m poor as shit, and I just started my own damn ranch because I love animals and ranching. I’m not rich, but im happy, and that’s all that matters, and that’s what this girl is saying, and all y’all for feel ashamed for being so damn mean to her. Moga, if you read this, you’re awesome, your comic is awesome, and these people are jack asses that think everyone who does what they love have to be rich to do it
i need a hug right now also nine hundred thousand dollars in cash

All gave some, some gave all.
If you’ve never seen the movie ‘A Beautiful Mind’ stop what you’re doing and go watch it. It’s a little slow at first but if you watch it all the way through it is one of the best movies ever (for those who don’t know it’s about John Nash, he was a genius that had schizophrenia and didn’t realize it for like 30 years and then he had to cope with his reality being torn apart and he went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize.)

Casual reminder that the so-called Confederate flag is a hate symbol and that no matter what other meanings you attach to it, it is still a hate symbol. It is a continuation of racism and white supremacy, and denying this is denying a history of lynch mob murders and other hate crimes.
The flag has nothing to do with slavery. I do not know that it ever had. So, you’re telling me because the Confederate flag had ties to slavery, it should be spoken down to? Well, America drove thousands of people out of their homes, amassed a body count comparable to the holocaust, and ‘reeducated’ the survivors so we could erase their culture, so why do we DARE fly the American flag if Native Americans might be offended?
And those slaves that white people went down to grab? I will agree, it was wrong of us to take those people. Slavery is never right, be it against blacks, whites, Asians, Indians, Arabs, anyone (oh, yes, slavery has been used against every race, you ignorant bleeding heart.) Whites were not the only ones dealing in the slave trade. Africans would sell their enemies to slavers. That’s right, black people were in the slave trade beyond being bought and sold. How shocking that no one ever points this out.
The Civil War was not all about slavery. It was about economics. I don’t know how stupid and racist you have to be to make everything about the plight of the black man. Sit through any American History class with a non-biased teacher, and you will hear how the North and South had been ready to fight long before the slavery issue began. Both sides wanted money from Southern trade. I won’t even get into who was right or wrong in that affair, but that’s how the Civil War started. The South wanted more control, and the North said no.
Not every person who hung the Confederate flag in the past even owned slaves. You had to put forward a lot of money to own a slave, money that the average planter simply did not have. The plantation owners were obviously well off and kept as many slaves as they could, flaunting their bodies as evidence of their wealth.
Men fought and died for their way of life, to have freedom from oppression. They fought under orders, under the Confederate flag. They were like any other soldier anywhere else on Earth, but people say those red-blooded Americans were nothing but damnable racists because they fought under the Confederate flag. Many of these soldiers likely never owned a slave, and it goes back to the aforementioned money. In the Civil War era, gentlemen of means could buy a position in the army, while the poorer folk fought as simple soldiers. You could not own slaves if you could not afford them.
The Confederate flag is a part of my heritage in much the same way the German, Italian, and Cherokee flags are. I refuse to allow anyone to twist it and make it out to be something evil. You may go ahead and say that I am horribly racist and backwards, that I am just some ignorant hick living down South. However, I have said my peace, and I am glad that I did. I leave it up to you to decide which argument you like. Doesn’t phase me at all whether you agree or disagree.
It’s a way of life, not a fashion statement. It’s not being racist, it’s called history.
