Clothes, Food, and Logic: Jakè Neidert Follow @Jakeandbake336 Fact: minimum wage is livable if you cut out entertainment, alcohol, drug, and eating out costs. Minimum wage isn't supposed to support a 6 figure lifestyle 4:27 AM-20 May 2019 480 Retweets 2,549 Likes AlwaysAshley @AshleyFrankly Follow Replying to @Jakeandbake336 Sit down, big boy. "A full-time minimum- wage job doesn't pay well enough to afford rent. In Kansas, where the state minimum wage is $7.25, you'd need to make $10.53 an hour to afford a studio. To rent a one- bedroom at minimum wage, you'd need to work 67 hours a week." 10:41 AM - 21 May 2019 397 Retweets 8,477 Likes Pé Resists Follow @4everNeverTrump Replying to @Jakeandbake336 Okay... let's try this in your city, Waco: Full-time minimum wage: $14,500/year. Splitting a 2 bedroom apartment in Waco: $5400/year. Utilities: $1500/year. Car (because it's TX): $6000/year. Income tax: $1400 WITHOUT FOOD, you're already at $14,300 in yearly expenses. 4:30 PM 21 May 2019 881 Retweets 7,612 Likes Pé Resists Follow @4everNeverTrump Replying to @4everNeverTrump @Jakeandbake336 Nor does this account for healthcare, pets, clothes, hygiene products, Mother's Day and Xmas gifts, etc. There's a reason why people work 60-80 hours/week at minimum (or close to minimum) wage jobs: BECAUSE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO LIVE ON A MINIMUM WAGE. 4:34 PM -21 May 2019 296 Retweets 5,270 Likes Katherine Soutar Artist Follow @Kate_Dancingcat Replying to @Jakeandbake336 This Sometimes the poor are praised for being thrifty. But to recommend thrift to the poor is both grotesque and insulting. It is like advising a man who is starving to eat less.

Clothes, Creepy, and Dad: DEMOCRATS Published 7 hours ago Last Update 6 hours ago Ocasio-Cortez claims she can't afford DC apartment, but records show she has at least $15,000 in savings Dental Insurance Plan By Lukas Mikelionis | Fox News A DELTA DENTAL HEy, LOOK HOW MUCH SKINNERMAKES $25,000 A YEAR HE'S 40 YEARS OLD TIMES 25 GRAND. WHOA! HE'S AMILLIONAIRE! PLUS IN THE SUMMER HE PAINTS HOUSES HE'S A BILLIONAIRE A BLWIONATRE callmegoddess618: prochoice-or-gtfo: tempest-caller: myfatfuckingface: vice-s-assistant: reverseracism: mysharona1987: Reminds me of the time they tried to claim she grow up in *this* house and was therefore a pampered limousine liberal.  The gas-lighting here is off the charts.  And now So..uh funny story about that last part to this: Dude bro who post this on Twitter…is kind of a real fucking creep. Posts a lot of female DC staffers/government employees body parts and makes creepy comments about them. Also writes for the Washington Examiner (and still is as of writing this).  Go fucking figure.  People who have never struggled financially have no idea what it looks like. They think everyone who lives in poverty should be constantly covered in dirt and tattered rags. 🙄🙄🙄 I can’t tell you how many times people told me I wasn’t poor because “If you were, you couldn’t afford x thing,” where “x thing” was usually something I absolutely could not afford normally but either got as a gift, got at a massively reduced price in a garage sale or thrift store, or found somewhere for free. Some of my furniture for example is stuff people were throwing away despite being in perfectly good condition, like my TV. It’s one of those older box TVs that are absurdly big. Owning stuff isn’t a sign of anything half the time. And uh, it’s not like she could go to work in rags! Lots of poor people have to buy or rent dress clothes for work. That doesn’t mean shit. It’s just how the world works. Also that house they’re showing is so small and looks old? It probably isn’t worth much. But it’s also rural, so she’d HAVE to go to whatever city was closest for things like groceries or school, probably. How does that prove anything about her upbringing? People really don’t know what poor is. Wow. ❄💙 Bella 💙❄ I own quite a few nice looking items of clothes. Some of them were gifts, others were thrifted, some are quality replicas of unaffordable items. I still struggle to make my rent every month and I have zero savings, but most people would not know that by looking at me.Poverty doesn’t have to be rags and begging outside the subway station. It can be the grad student eating nothing but mashed potatoes for a week. Ocasio-Cortez’s opponents are just looking for whatever they can to criticize her.-V Seriously. All of my leggings and half of my dresses are Lularoe. They are all gifts from my mom, my step mom, my sister, and my dad.

America, Clothes, and College: O4G19:39 pervocracy I wonder if one of the causes of animosity towards "entitled millennials" is that many millennials are poor people who look rich. Theres this growing class of people who wear nice clothes, have fancy new electronic gadgets, go out to eat nice food... and will never own a home or have a retirement fund or put a child through college. It's so easy to say "if you cut down on the avocado toast maybe you could save up", and so hard to accept that a house these days is fifty thousand avocado toasts, and thats why so many of us have just given up. We don't treat ourselves because we think the world will take care of us when we get older, we treat ourselves because we know it won't. Might as well feel and look good on the way down geobrarian think you're absolutely right. And what compounds this image is the fact that fancy new gadgets and nice looking clothes and elevated toast ARE all relatively cheap compared to how they look. The cost of things has gone way down while the price of property has skyrocketed. I can buy a full outfit, a phone case with an external charger embedded, and lunch at a local business for under $50 total, but then I'll walk home to 4619:39 business for under $50 total, but then I'll walk home to my apartment because I can't afford a car payment or a mortgage. It's unintentional smoke and mirrors bogleech Older, better off people also have difficulty understanding the cell phone thing because they remember cell phones being a luxury for thousands of dollars practically yesterday in their personal timeline of the world. They often have sincerely no idea you can get at least a flip phone for $10 and pay as you go And foods that used to be "exotic dining" in America like sushi and pho and curry have normalized enough, especially in cities, to be as inexpensive as a typical quick Tunch kyraneko Yep. There's an aspect of frugality to turning your buying choices to what gets you the most bang for your buck, and now that you can have sushi for the price of McDonald's, buy a suit from the thrift store and have it tailored to you for less than the price of a new pain of jeans, and find smartphones for under a hundred dollars or even free with data plan, that is the sort of also like, half of the stuff is not only nolonger a luxery but its an actual necessity, if you dont have a computer it just became so much harder to apply for jobs, if you dont have a phone how are they going to contact you for the interview?

Bad, Books, and Crush: I think I've got a crush on one of my friends, but I'm not sure if that makes me bisexual or if it's just a phase. I'm 14. Is there any way to know? Anonymous You're 14. You're not only still learning about yourself, you're still forming This is a time for phases, and that's not a bad thing. Revel in phases like you' ve never been old enough to before and will never be young enough to do again Try phases. Wear ugly nail polish. Dip-dye your hair. Cut it all off. Cry about that. Wear hats and wigs or not. Pierce your belly button with a sewing needie and ice and have it get infected and ooze pus on your favorite shirt and learn why you'll get all your other piercings done at a shop. Weep yourself sick over things you'll think are stupid in six months, six days, or six hours...or things that will scar your heart until you're eighty. Know that you'll survive both. Eat an entire cheesecake because your metabolism is young. Try wine coolers and learn that they're disgusting and a sip of Shiraz you'll need a job to afford and learn that it can be disgusting too. Be a poet this week and don't shower and wander around barefoot at night thinking deep thoughts until you step in dog crap, then be a photojoumalist, then an activist, then a vegan, then a misanthropic nihilist Get your heart broken. Survive it Be fifteen versions of yourself in sixteen weeks and try on selves like blue jeans until you find one that fits for now and makes you feel amazing and know that it's ok if it doesn't fit ater because you're still growing and there are always more on the shelves and in weird little thrift stores and you can even sew your own. Kiss boys, kiss giris, kiss people who are neither or both, kiss puppies and babies and photos of celebrities and old books. Kiss being 14 - deeply, wetly, messily -before you have to kiss it good bye and worry about what labels stick andythanfiction Can we please just tell every middle schooler this instead of making them feel embarrassed by their existence and their need to try new things? It would be much nicer to hear this through middle school and high school than it is to hear about how dumb your phase or whatever is and how much you'll regret it in a year Damn, every time I see this go by my dash, it has, like, 10K more notes. I'm awed by how much it seems to have meant to so many people, and incredibly moved to see so many notes saying that this has mattered 103,825 notes Phases

Bad, Being an Adult, and Bored: youcantseebutimmakingaface I ended up having a really interesting con- versation with some people at the bus stop today. They were getting out of some sort of 'clean and sober meeting and had starting saying how they were so bored because they didn't have anything to do, and had to stay at home because all their old friends would pull them back. So I said something like, 'So this is the time to do all the stuff your parents told you they didn't have money/time for!' "Whatcha mean?" "You know, like when you were five and you REALLY wanted to have that toy or do that thing and you were like, 'Please mom please I gotta have this I gotta go do this' and they went 'Hell no you think I'm paying for that do you want to goddamn EAT?'" And this light went on in their eyes. The lady is going to go check thrift stores for an Easybake Oven and I told her about Wilton cake decorating classes. The dude is going to Griffith Park and ride horses, because, 'I always wanted to be a cowboy, and you can't drink when you're on a horse 'cause you'll fucking die! Fuck it. This is what being an adult is. Sure it's bills and work and relationships, but damn it, it's also time to do the things you LIKE. I signed up for a free class/lecture on Water Gardens. I'm going. It's time. curlyhumility Jill. Jill you are wonderful.

It gave me something meaningless and ridiculous to occupy my time with opposed to just being in my room depressed.  But I’m over the girl that broke my heart, its been awhile, and I do have a new girlfriend, and shes amazing and I was like  “So I own over 200 copies of Forrest Gump on VHS, I mean I really like you and I can see us going somewhere, and I think its important to be honest, I have an absurd amount of VHS, and thats not going to change. I mean ever. Like I’m going to own these VHS tapes until I’m dead. Ok, fine, if the tapes do bother you, like I’ll get rid of them… but like you’ll have to explain to my followers why… im doing it for you. I know we don’t know each other that well, this is crazy, but like you’re so cool and you’re so great, that i would give up my VHS tapes for you.” and she was like “90s, relax, having that many VHS tapes is kind of sketch but I’d never tell you to get rid of them.”.. then one night we were in my room watching Game of Thrones on HBOGo, and we start making out until shes like “90s I can’t do anything in here, the VHS tapes sketch me out.” and I was like “Are u serious?” and she was all “Dead serious.” and I was like “Like 2 girls on tumblr have said they’d want me to fuck them on top of a pile of Forrest Gump VHS tapes, like you should be so turned on.” and she was all “90s this is real life not your tumblr ask box, literally no one in the world would want to be fucked on top of a pile of Forrest Gump VHS tapes.” and I was like “I don’t want to fuck on top of Forrest Gump tapes anyway, like do you feel this mattress right now, its like a Serta, its so comfortable. This is a premium deluxe mattress.”
