Hi there! My name is Elizabeth and welcome to my Tumblr!! Don't expect any sort of consistency, but lots of fun! My biggest fandoms are Harry Potter, Avatar and MLP, my OTPs include Quirrelmort, Dramione, RogerXJim, Mikoe(MikeyXJoe) and SophieXHowl, and I cry when I watch the scene in Happy Feet 2 when Eric finally sings. So that's all about me, how about you??Ask me anything Submit
Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy"
“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.
It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”
Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.
I will always reblog this quote. Hits way too close to home for me.
The most salient part of this, to me, is the underscoring of the fact that there is no “right” college major where you’re guaranteed a job forever. Conservatives love to pretend college graduates working minimum-wage or freelance jobs just didn’t “pick the right major” - those foolish fools studied the arts or literature or something else frivolous, so they deserve crushing debt and no job security! No. There is no magical college major that will let you sidestep the jobless recovery.
do you ever sit there and wonder what life must be like for people without anxiety
like they just
without worrying about them first
Anxiety is an excuse
I hope you walk barefoot on a world of legos for the rest of your life
The first time Tony Stark had an anxiety attack he thought he had been poisoned.

gay marriage is legal in the sims god damn it real world sort your shit out
lets talk about sims for a minute
in sims, your appearance doesn’t matter. you can pursue what career you want and not get paid less for being a certain gender. you can change your sim’s gender or life at any time. what other sims care about is if you’re nice or if you kick over their gnome.
