I turned on Reign for the first time in months because of the spoilers but it’s only a few minutes in and I hate everything. I’m not willing to sit through this just for the wedding.
Also I caught the end of TVD. There is officially nothing left for me on that show and I’ve never been happier I quit it.
Some people get excited when their parents surprise them with gadgets. And then there’s me, who couldn’t say anything but “I have a door" for five minutes when I got home.
Why doesn’t your theme show captions? Why doesn’t your theme show source info? Why doesn’t your theme show tags? Why does your theme SUCK?!
I might be torturing Agent McCall more than is strictly necessary in this fic.
Also there’s consensus that his name’s Rafael, right?
Or, last night’s debate on King of the Nerds left me very unhappy.
First off, my arguments are not for or against either canon. I’m arguing that the topics given in the debate were just plain bad.
apparently everyone in the world is allowed to have an opinion about the harry potter series
unless they’re jk rowling
Or in layman’s terms: one in four 26 year olds are lazy, bottom feeding, good for nothing, free loading leeches.
Get off the couch, junior, and get a place on your own. I’m sure your parents are sick of having an almost 30 year old man/woman still mooching off of them.
Just because someone is living with their parents doesn’t mean they are a “bottom feeding, good for nothing, free loading leach.” I’m 26. I live with my parents. Why? Because for the last four years since I graduated college I have been unable to find a job that pays enough to support me. For more than a year now I’ve been unemployed. It’s not because I’m lazy and sitting on my ass all day. I have applied to more jobs than I can count. I’ve tried full time, part time, and temporary. I’ve tried minimum wage jobs and livable wage jobs. I have an great work ethic, management experience, and excellent references, but it hasn’t made a lick of difference. I’ve taken odd jobs when I can get them. I’ve gone through my savings to pay my loan bills. My confidence is in the can (that’s what happens when you get rejection after rejection after rejection). I’m horribly depressed. I’m living with my parents so I don’t have to get government assistance. I contribute to my parents household in any way I can. I cook, clean, and run errands for them. I’m not a lazy free loader.
The fact is, no matter what our president says, our job market sucks. “Just get a job” isn’t all that easy. And now, thanks to Obamacare and minimum wage hikes, it’s going to be even harder. My guess is that you, like most of the conservative blogs on this site, have posted about the job market, unemployment rates, Obamacare, and minimum wage. So you should know all this. You should know that the dems have all but destroyed our job market. So get off your judgmental high horse and show a little compassion for people who are doing the best they can and have no choice except to either live with their parents or get government assistance.
Oh and by the way. If the parents of these 26 year old have a problem with their kids living with them, then that’s THEIR job to address it, not yours. My parents don’t have a problem with it (beyond being sad that their daughter is being overlooked). I know this because every time I start feeling insecure and like at any point my family is just going to get sick of me and my failures (something that happens pretty often), my parents assure me that that’s not the case and that I’m welcome in their home.
And, like all statistics, this should be taken with a grain of salt. How many of those parents need their children? How many children are staying with their parents because their parents are struggling? My cousin and her new husband and baby are still living with her parents and older brother in part because the parents can’t make rent without them.
There are - and were even before the current economic crisis - plenty of families in which generations stay together, sharing expenses and resources. That doesn’t make them lazy.
If anyone ever asks you to tag something - no matter what it is or how important it is to you - don’t you dare get mad about it. If it’s important enough for them to send an ask, it’s important to them too.
They could just unfollow, which means their opinion of you is so low that one little thing is enough to destroy it.
They could ask you not to post it anymore, which means their opinion of you is so low they think they have authority over you.
They could just scroll past and bite their tongue, which means their opinion of themselves is so low they can’t talk to you.
Personally I’d always rather people felt comfortable asking,
