Intern abuse: Your excuses are invalid.

rosalindrobertson:

I have been an intern, and I have managed interns.

I did two internships in J school. Both were set up by my school. Both were 6 weeks long, and closely supervised by both the stations I was assigned to and by my department. Both did lead to jobs. But I didn’t do any work. Nothing I created was…

1) The fact that she finally gets a moment of happiness (even briefly before the depression takes over) makes ME so very happy, too. It’s a victory for her, and hope for anybody/everybody who suffers.2) You make her look so darn cute in panel 2!3) I certainly relate to the fact she over thinks herself into destructiveness. I don’t suffer from clinical depression, but when I think about the infinite (bad) possibilities about the future, I feel my life both torn and crushed by them. Then, I feel sad about choosing to do nothing but sit here, even though it seems either simpler or more logical than pick a (bad) possibility.4) I hope she eventually realizes that being stupid around good friends are what good friends are for. They forgive mistakes and awkwardness because they want to be with you.Great work, as usual. Hugs!

There is some research that has been done lately that shows depressed people do in fact experience joy and happiness but in a far shorter burst than people without depression. I’ve been trying to put this into a strip and I hope to have it up soon as it provides a little bit of depth to understanding depression.As for her improving her situation, that’s doubtful, the job of the writer is to torture the characters and I will continue to do so.

Michael K. Williams talks about an emotional moment on the set of ‘12 Years a Slave’, moving Arsenio Hall to tears.

The emotional and spiritual toll that this film must have taken on every single Black cast member…..

Lord….

"But the bigger trauma is Macklemore’s continual conflation of homophobia with Hip Hop and ultimately Blackness and Black people. Consider the beginning of the second verse of “Same Love”: If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me/ have you read the YouTube comments lately?”

Hip-hop has been queer for years before Macklemore was even born. The first rap song came out of the disco tradition, rappers like Cee-Lo Green and Andre 3000 have been doing drag for years, Common came out against writing homophobic lyrics, not to mention the countless rappers and artists who have supported Frank Ocean. While homophobic lyrics are pervasive in Hip Hop, they have never been more homophobic or heteronormative than any rock or pop song. Secondly, if 87 percent of YouTube users are White and 54 percent male, it’s guys who look like you and listen to rap like you do, who perpetuate that narrative of hateful Hip Hop? He goes on to speak about how “we” are complacent to homophobia: “We become so numb to what we’re saying/ A culture founded from oppression/ yet we don’t have acceptance for ‘em.”

The most accurate statement in this stanza is that Hip Hop is a culture founded on oppression, but whose? Not Macklemore — Hip Hop was not grown, marketed and exploited on the backs of handsome, straight, white men."

"Chronic pain sufferers are not addicted to pain killers. Chronic pain sufferers are addicted to not having to be aware of every inch of their body for every waking moment. Chronic pain sufferers are addicted to the freedom of nothingness, and don’t you dare judge them for wanting something you get free of charge."

This is why I find the idea of worrying that I’ll get ‘dependent’ almost laughable - of course I’ll be constantly dependent, I’m constantly in pain.

Canada’s rainbow money

Fun fact for Americans: our money is technically made of plastic and they won’t get wet/gross when you accidentally wash them, and you also can’t rip any bills.

Everybody is in love with canadian money, the thing is who isn’t? 

The funniest thing ever is to see canadians try to use american money. One of my friends asked me “HOW DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHICH ONE IS WHICH?! THEY’RE ALL THE SAME COLOR!”

its called reading the numbers

americans learn at an early age to differentiate between the faces of old white men

Why is the queen of England on Canadian money?

Because England basically raised Canada until we were old enough to make our own decisions.

America left home super early

and made bad life choices as a result.

american money is so garbage if you have any kind of visual empairment. all the same colour. all the same size. what. 

I’m feeling so patriotic.
