"It is difficult to change our lives because we constantly tell ourselves stories about who we are and what we’re capable of. However, your story is often changing, so you may feel compelled not to mention anything until it is certain or has already happened; we aren’t something, until we are."

Actual SW jobs.
Before I hear anything about $14.36 being a good wage (because compared to what’s out there, it can sure look like it), check this out. In 1995, entry-level wages with a bachelor’s in humanities or social science were about $11.05. Run that through an inflation calculator, and that would be between $15.40-$23.40 today. Just look at the purchasing power, and you’re looking at near $17 an hour.
In 1995, a bachelor’s with no experience could get you the equivalent of $17 an hour.
In 2014, they want a bachelor’s WITH experience or a fucking master’s degree, and you get $14.36 an hour, no benefits.

International Womens day!!!
I really gotta stop shaming and comparing myself to others. And doubting myself.
And going on Facebook and doing all these things. Eek.
The city looks so peaceful from up here.
Anything is peaceful from one thousand three hundred and fifty three feet.
