Then someone said the word Spaghetti, not realizing that someone at the party was once raped by Spaghetti. Insensitive fucking pricks. Don’t they realize the mere utterance of certain words is enough to destroy a person’s psyche utterly and totally?
you know what?
i’ve been raped. i’ve been declared a “retard” by schools and peers. i am a fucking shemale. and you know what else?
NONE OF THESE WORDS FUCKING HURT ME.
fuck you, op. fuck you for perpetuating this idea that we’re so fucking weak that words hurt us. fuck you for promoting weakness among those of us who haven’t yet learned to deal with mere words. most of all, though, fuck you for deluding yourself into thinking you’re doing anything good for anyone but yourself.
I have paid every cent of my tuition out of my own pocket and I’m entering nursing school with $0 in student debt.
I never qualified for FASFA because my dad makes 6 figures a year and it’s impossible to prove you’re not a dependent if you’re younger than 24.
My parents never saved any money for their children’s college education even though my dad made over $1,000,000 in one year when we were still in elementary school.
My dad also got to use the tuition I paid for with the money I earned as a tax write off each year, so instead of getting it back like most college students do, I saw none of it.
I’ve worked 2 jobs to be able to pay for my school and not be homeless or starving. I’ve maintained a 3.7 GPA throughout all my semesters.
The system might not always work in your favor, and the college savings that most kids take forgranted isn’t something you’re entitled to.
I know you can’t believe that I was accepted over you when you had a 4.0 GPA, but I worked my ass off for 4 years just to have an opportunity to possibly get into nursing school.
I deserve this, and the universe says so. Hard work obviously pays off, and a GPA or student debt doesn’t always reflect just how hard you truly worked for something.
I think I’m going to make some sort of series out of these edits. Yes, I get these rolls, especially when I sit, and my arms are far from perfect in the eyes of the world, but I learning to love myself this year. Change your mindset and love yourself this year.
