Anonymous asked: "What is your ultimate fantasy?"

becomingathena:

Financial stability.





"Instead, it might be that the stressful lives of poor people make sticking to a diet and exercise plan more difficult. It’s hard to exercise when you live in an unsafe neighborhood. Stress leads to emotional eating. You can’t plan for gym time when you only know your work schedule three days in advance."

Rich People Exercise, Poor People Take Diet Pills - The Atlantic

It’s both frustrating and amusing watching these rich journalist/social science dorks try to figure this kind of thing out. They are so clueless. So completely stupidly clueless, it’s like watching a gif of a puppy running into a glass door repeatedly.

"You can’t plan for gym time when you only know your work schedule three days in advance."

How the hell much does it cost to JOIN a gym, you adorable little dum dum? You think of that, maybe? It’s not even on the radar. How many things that cost the same amount would a working poor person want to buy first?! That extra money could be towards rent in a better apartment, a bus pass instead of tickets, better shoes, more filling meals, warmer coat, paying down that debt…

How about if the work you do is PHYSICALLY EXHAUSTING and leaves you wanting sleep and food and painkillers, not contrived “toning” routines?

You can work your ass off in a physical job and still be fat. Really fat. It’s actually really easy to do. Also, weight loss may leave you feeling weak and more tired and less able to do the tasks you actually have to do to get paid.

It’s carbs, insulin, and cortisone, 100%





"Before deciding librarianship is right for you, make sure you understand what today’s librarians do all day. If you want quiet and lots of time to read, think again. Today’s libraries are full of collegial, and sometimes even downright noisy, collaboration, creation, and community activities, and are as much about technology as print on paper."

Meredith Schwartz’s “How To Be a 21st Century Librarian,” from Library Journal. A fantastic, digestible overview of the profession and absolute required reading for those researching MLS/MLIS programs.

It reminds me that I need to write my “Why I Didn’t Go to Library School” post.

inkstainedmoon asked: "Does NPR ever offer positions to highschool students?"

No. Here’s my advice for you, if you’re in high school: Don’t worry about your job or career at this point. Try as many things as possible. If you want to make radio, make radio. If you want to join a band, join a band. Be curious, be open, don’t be locked in. Take a job to make some money but don’t worry about what it is. I worked in a swim club and read books for a summer. It was fun. 

There’s enough time to think about this stuff later. Life is not a resume; a resume is not a life. 

she might have been asking about an internship or a way to get school credit, like how hard is that to understand? why not respond by offering that option if it’s available? this answer is so smug and stupid and i fucking can’t stand NPR.

What kind of a stupid answer is “if you want to make radio, make radio”? You kind of need access to the airwaves to do that, buddy, which is what this kid was trying to get by inquiring about an internship.

And who says you’re “locked in” to anything because you have a job somewhere in high school?

Ugh I read their reply in my head in a David Sedaris/Ira Glass affected lip-smacking white guy voice and now I am extra annoyed.

This is so stupid and pretentious.
