I laughed and laughed at the astrological cartographer.

On Life, Love, Lower Learning

@Titania Holy shit. I never made the connection between the more money you make, the shittier your duties are. It makes crazy sense. I was making bank at my admin jobs at really fancy places. However, I put up with so much shit. It was awful. I couldn't get out of doing admin work. I wish that I could go back in time to when my cheaply suited self got hired for admin work. I would have turned it down, even it meant I had to stay on my friend's air mattress in fucking Bay Ridge. Once I got into that racket, I couldn't quit. I kept getting hired by fancier corporations at fancy jobs. It was a ghetto.

I got the fuck out. I got fired at my last job for a really, really insignificant mistake (that I actually fixed). As soon as I walked out the door, I vowed that I would never do admin work ever again. Being an "executive assistant" was a vampire that drained my life force. I greatly lowered my standard of living (ie no weekly pedicures and I retired from my usual hustle of traveling to see music). I am on unemployment. Unemployment is paying for me to get a second bachelor's. I started school in the Spring. It is so fucking liberating to not be somebody's office bitch. It is magical not waking up in the middle of the night wondering if I fucked up catering for a very important meeting. I am much more mentally healthy.

Young women reading this: Don't get sucked into admin work. I cannot stress this enough. This might increase your short-term suffering, but it will be worth it. It's so easy to get admin work if you are a pretty, charming woman who is capable of presenting a certain way. Don't fall into this trap.

@jesslyn I'm similar with my hair. I reccomend Davines NouNou. I've actually been using John Frieda shamp and conditioner lately with great results.

@dj pomegranate Dude, calm down. There are a ton of drugstore hair products her work well and are cheap. For example, I've never been done wrong by a Garnier product. Loreal makes incredible sulfate free shampoos. I also love John Frieda shampoo. Products are only as expensive as you want them to be.

@Daisy Razor I fucking love style prep. I have wavey hair that I wear mermaid ste. It tames the frizz and enhances the wave without being too heavy or greasy or whatever. It does magical things to my mane. I am not a fan of Aveda products in general, but SP is a huge exception. It's spendy, but a bottle lasts a really long time.

On The Queen of The Queen of Versailles

I'm scared to watch this movie bc Jackie is an animal hoarder. I can deal w. all kinds of human misery, but I am scared to see even a miliisecond of one of her neglected dogs (apparently she starves them and buys more when the other dogs die of starvation). Priorities...
