I’m sitting here doing psych work and I just read yet another statement on how kids and students are overweight because of TV and video games keeping them from going outside and I just sat back in realization because like….

8 or 9 times out of 10, I’m not outside because of homework. Not TV and video games.

I get back from class, two in the afternoon, and I’m either so exhausted that I don’t want to do anything physical or I have so much homework that I can’t get outside before its dark.

Elementary school kids spend from 8 am to 3:30 pm in school (where I’m from), and by second grade are bringing home at least an hour of homework (based on the dozens of kids I work with over the school year). Say they come home, take half an hour to grab a snack and relax before doing an hour of homework. By the time they’re done, its five o'clock. Six is dinner time in my house, and I imagine its similar elsewhere (America centric but thats the school system I’m talking about)

That’s MAYBE an hour of playtime outside, if they dont have chores and if it isn’t already dark out, like it is in the late fall and winter. And yeah, they could do their homework at night. But I know my parents were strict about getting it done before dinner, and I’m sure a lot of other parents are the same way.

Don’t even get me started on middle and highschool. I didn’t even see the sun during musical season.

College? You run to and from class for anywhere from two to six hours a day and then you have homework, jobs, and you have to eat and sleep somewhere in there.

No wonder kids and young adults are sitting down in front of the TV or video games. We’re too exhausted mentally to do anything else.

Video games and tech aren’t the problem here. It’s school and the excessive amount of homework dumped on kids every damn day.

What if someone got bitten by a vampire, but didn’t realize it. So then they go around and keep misidentifying all the symptoms, like

“Dude, you haven’t gone outside in a while.”
“Yeah, last time I went out I got this wicked sunburn.”

“Are you still up?”
“Yeah, I started bing watching this show on Netflix.”

“Dude, I’m seriously craving something right now.”
“Like what?”
“I dunno. Pizza rolls?”

“Why is it that you never come into my house unless I invite you?”
“Um, it’s called ‘being polite’…?”

I WANT A HORROR COMEDY ABOUT THIS OMG PLEASE

Okay, folks. The comic blogging and jokes will resume in a bit, got something serious to talk about right now.

I live at home, and I work for my dad. Our shop isn’t doing very well right now and we’re going into summer, the slowest season for bicycling in Florida. We’ve been in debt for a while because of the business, my mum and dad’s respective medical bills, the second mortgage, etc, but it’s all coming to a head.

If we don’t come up with $6200 by July 9th, we lose the house.

We’ve lived here since 1997, almost 20 years. I know for a fact that we can’t go to family for financial assistance, and if my dad declares bankruptcy, there’s a good chance he’ll lose the business. $6200 won’t get us out of debt, or make the shop liven up, but it’ll make sure we’ve got a place to live.

I’m going to put together a list of comics, books, and figures I’m selling to hopefully pull in a few hundred dollars. I’ve also been told that I should make a GoFundMe, but I’m going to have to discuss that with my parents first…and then probably do it anyway. 

We have three dogs, two cats, and both my parents have health problems (a permanently pinched nerve in his shoulder and heart arrhythmia for dad, arthritis, extreme joint pain, and high blood pressure for mum), not to mention that we’ve only had one car for the past two months. My family cannot be homeless right now.

You always see posts and stories about people dealing with impending homelessness and think, well, surely that won’t happen to me. I spent my high school years working at a homeless shelter. I’ve seen friends have houses go into foreclosure. My best friend chose pride over help and was homeless for several weeks until her health problems landed her in the hospital, and I cannot see the same thing happen to my parents, or to me.

The people of this community have been generous before, and I don’t doubt they’ll be generous again. Expect to see an updated post with more information later tonight. As it is, my current PayPal address is touch_of_grey37@hotmail.com.

Thank you to anyone willing to lend a hand.

I’m going to see if I can set up a GoFundMe today, at which point I’ll put all the money that’s been sent to us so far in that thing, and make a new post to direct people there instead. The amount of support I’ve seen so far has been absolutely amazing, and I cannot thank you all enough.

It is literally impossible to save money when you are poor.

lightspeedsound:

shakethecobwebs:

One more time for those in the back:  It is literally impossible to save money when you are poor.

This isn’t because of bad planning or irresponsibility. It is because everything costs money all of the time, poverty is engineered by capitalism, and being poor is fucking expensive. 

I’ll never forget the time when my then-boyfriend told me that I should buy a $75 pair of work shoes instead of the $10 work shoes I’d bought only months ago that were already falling apart. His reasoning was that better-made shoes would last longer and I wouldn’t have to buy shoes so often. This didn’t take into account the fact that I would need that extra $65 for the power bill, groceries, gas, car insurance, etc. 

I have never been given good advice from a non-poor person when it comes to money. Ever. Because all of their advice is predicated on the idea that somehow you aren’t working hard and that money is available to you if you just want it bad enough. Non-poor people have been made to think that they are somehow just naturally good with their money, but when you ask them to think critically when it comes to money, they lose all logic.

Let me be clear: Poor people are some of the hardest working, creative, and smartest people I have ever met. We wouldn’t survive otherwise. 

The best quote I’ve ever heard about money was from a book describing poor farmers at the turn of the century and this girls father was trying to explain why they couldn’t buy a bigger sack of cornmeal that cost more overall but less per pound and he told his daughter

“Only rich people can afford to be thrifty”

And it’s the goddamn truth dude

trust:

what time is it where you are???

There is something hidden in there that Anna and I did. We both love the movie Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead and we wanted to pay homage to Christina Applegate and that movie so there’s a line in this movie where she says, ‘I’m right on top of that Chlo,’ and we just made sure that was there because the line in Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, is ‘I’m right on top of that Rose.’ [x]

1. He is not running against Hillary Clinton

“I’m not running against Hillary Clinton,” he said. “She’s a candidate, I’m a candidate, and I suspect that there will be other candidates. The people in this country will make their choice.” His socialist platform is “one that resonates” with the American people, and he believes he can effectively appeal to them no matter who his opponent is, or how large her war chest is. But, as he’s said, he’s engaged in “a real struggle against the billionaire class.”

2. Yes, we did say “socialist”

Twice now, actually, because not only is Senator Sanders not afraid of the word, he openly embraces it. Earlier this month, he freely admitted that he wanted to make America “more Scandinavian” — by which he meant, a democratic country with a socialist backbone when it comes to healthcare, education, and retirement. “If you see the transfer of 99 percent of the wealth to the top one-tenth of the one percent,” he’s said, “you’ve got to transfer that back.”

3. President Sanders would overturn Citizens United

“The major issue of our time is whether the United States of America retains its democratic foundation or whether we devolve into an oligarchic form of society where a handful of billionaires are able to control our political process by spending hundreds of millions of dollars to elect candidates who represent their interests,” he said last September. The best way to do that, he said, is to overturn Citizens United, because “freedom of speech does not mean the freedom to buy the United States government.”

4. Senator Sanders is about as anti-corporate a candidate you can imagine this side of Noam Chomsky

He has proposed what would, in essence, be a “Wall Street sales tax,” and his opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership is based on the fact that only “[m]ultinational corporations that have outsourced millions of good-paying American jobs to China, Mexico, Vietnam, India and other low-wage countries think this is a great deal.” Whereas “every union in this country…opposes this agreement that will wipe out jobs and depress wages.”

5. And about those unions…

Senator Sanders’ top five campaign contributors since 2009 are all unions, and 69 percent of the money he receives from political action committees comes from union PACs. “I’m not going to use a super PAC,” he’s said, and the facts bear him out. He has one, but it hasn’t raised any money for his presidential bid to date.

6. He believes public education — all of it — should be free

From elementary to middle, through high school and into community college or a university, Sanders believes that education should cost the student nothing. It’s not merely a personal investment, he believes, it’s a public good — and as such should be funded by the public. “These are not utopian ideas,” he’s said. “They are not radical ideas. They are fairly commonsensical ideas that can happen when you have a government that is directed by the people themselves and not by wealthy powerful corporate interests.”
