GF : (whispering) “There are people who do this for a living.”
Me (looking up from my book): “What?”
GF: “There are people who do this for a living.”
Me: “Do what?”
GF: “Sit around watching things happen.”
Me: “What people?”
GF: “Burgers. Stock exchangers. Basketballers.”
Me: “Why do they do it?”

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
no they just shout swear words at me and then end the swear word filled sentence by calling me “love” :¿?

3x01 I Knew You When
I see Tumblr’s stance on the changing definition of the word “literally”.
it’s always super weird to me when i have friends on here that see all the feminist and anti-racist posts that go around tumblr but then don’t form any opinion about them? i’m like why do you never talk about it? do you have any oPINIOnS?? are u ok FRiEND?
Marina, you are a lovely individual and I appreciate how much speak out, but you can’t judge if someone uses a medium differently than you. You know some people uses social media as a form of escape or as a professional presence.
I know personally I try not to respond to *everything* I see on my dashboard because I’m trying to get a job. I’m more aware than ever that what I say can affect my next few years in my search. And I want to work somewhere that I share moral stances with, yes, but some people have better comfortability with some things as opposed to others. I’m less eloquent about a ton of political stances that I see on Tumblr and more eloquent about humor and storytelling and writing process and theatre. So that’s what I choose to talk about. I think that also reflects in my videos too.
So yeah, I’m sure you were just speaking light heartedly but I’ve heard this argument a lot, and I’m confident that my focuses in other things does not de-value my presence as a Tumblr-user.
Can we all just shut up about Leo?
How long did it take for Amy Poehler to win an Emmy for her role as Leslie Knope? Oh wait, that still hasn’t happened? K. Yeah.
