Hire me you fools!

Hire me you fools!

“A Dog on his Master” and “The Revenant”: Billy Collins at TED2014 | TED Blog

“I am the dog you put to sleep, / as you like to call the needle of oblivion, / come back to tell you this simple thing: / I never liked you — not one bit.”

New job residue problems

Since getting this new job on the first try, there is a void of excitement.

I’m so afraid that this new temp job will stress me out before I am healed from the last job. There are still terrible dreams and anxieties in the day. I’m embarrassed that this is happening.

If I don’t keep this job, I’m letting down all my family and friends.

Driving over grass

It’s only been month since I first arrived at my mom’s. This mother is a little different from the one I left a while back. She has gotten older and her life has gotten harder. She is also a little more fragile than I am used to. Or the military really has hardened me. I remind myself several times a day to be patient and compassionate towards the things she does and says. Tender and distracted, she does her best to tackle the day and responsibilities. My mother has never been this regularly vulnerable. Every moment with her I see her age and cruelty of aging stealing her young heart.

Last time we’ve spent days together one on one was when I moved out three years ago.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

Damn.

Well said.

19 #WhyIStayed tweets everyone needs to see

While many cheered the NFL’s move to (finally) punish Rice’s vicious behavior, too many media outlets immediately fell into a tired pattern of victim blaming. 

Writer Beverly Gooden had heard enough. “I was watching the responses to the TMZ on my timeline, and I noticed a trend. People were asking ‘why did she marry him?’ and ‘why didn’t she leave him,’” Gooden told Mic. “When I saw those tweets, my first reaction was shame. The same shame that I felt back when I was in a violent marriage. It’s a sort of guilt that would make me crawl into a shell and remain silent. But today, for a reason I can’t explain, I’d had enough. I knew I had an answer to everyone’s question of why victims of violence stay. I can’t speak for Janay Rice, I can only speak for me.”

Gooden decided to change the conversation. Follow micdotcom

Looking for work is a job in itself. It feels thankless, but I know it’s not.

Don’t give up!
