I’ve worked with the same organization for 5 summers, (2 in high school, the rest for college). I was at one sight for the first 2 summers/year, then moved to a different sight that I’ve been at the past 3 summers. Sometimes I go back to help out at the first if they’re short on people.
So I was at the first sight today and I was closing up the gate when the attraction manager came by on his way out. He stopped, asked about college and if I was back for the summer (since it was the first time we really saw each other and weren’t busy) and then asked what I was studying.
"What are you focusing on?"
"Creative writing." I don’t like telling people my focus because I always feel judged. Like, I can tell people are already unimpressed with English and it sucks.
"Oh wow, that’s a hard discipline! And useful too! Wow!" And then he talks about how it helps with expression and is really useful in all fields and how it’s sorely needed today. And I can tell that he legitimately thinks that.
It made my day. His reaction was the opposite of most reactions I get (which are pretty dismissive and have honestly worn my down these past few years). It also helped because this past week has basically been me wondering what the fuck I was doing with my life and why the fuck I thought creative writing was a good idea, despite it being my passion.
Validation is nice.
So I was at a thrift store and I see this little cat lamp.
I was like “Aye yo, ya’ll are fuckin’ adorable.”
So I bought the lil’ guy and took him home to plug him in.
Then I was like “No.”
well no wonder why it was in the thrift store
but shit it was 99 cents

(Just a Few of) The Federal Benefits of Marriage Equality
What we didn’t have yesterday.
THIS IS WHY IT’S HUGE
You mean people didn’t used to qualify for these things?
Married people qualify for these things. Which means in most states, same-sex couples do not.
That’s the joke! Ha ha haHaHaHA! Ha… ha…
I’m sad, now.
But in all seriousness, I’m so happy this is getting around even more. I was excited when I compiled this, though I have to admit, I was a little more optimistic that it would either be 1. legal in all states by now, and/or 2. common knowledge for people. Yes, our rights are significantly less than your average person and it does indeed suck. Our state still inflicts a shitton of red tape upon K’s and my marriage, and we still don’t have basic rights. Tax season is a goddamned nightmare, and that’s the least of our worries in regards to state laws and regulations.
