Sometimes reminding myself that things are even more expensive in NYC is the only way to keep myself from getting frustrated over how expensive things are where I live XD But at least you have the excitement of living somewhere interesting!

Yeah after I posted that I started thinking that people are having a tough time everywhere, honestly idk how we all do it. A lot of people work all day just to afford a place to live and then never get to actually live in it since they’re too busy working.

Ah I really wish I found it more interesting though! I guess since I’ve lived here my whole life there’s not much of a draw to live in this particular city aside from m family being here. But then again, when I hear about how less tolerant other cities are to certain issues or rights I’m glad I’m here :)

I hate traveling out of NYC, because whenever I go buy something anywhere else it’s like 1/10 of the price it is here

I was reading some articles a few yrs ago that stated that an average person in the U.S. would only need to earn $75,000 a yr to attain “optimum levels of happiness” and that an income beyond that wouldn’t increase these feelings

And then I read another article reporting that earning $60,000 in NYC would equate to earning about $23,000 in Atlanta 

So basically to sum it all up: these polls were bullshit, including even the initial thought of them and I hate how expensive everything is here

At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.

remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner.  Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.”  And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.”
