In line with something my sister has been shouting about this morning, if you censor the word #queer or treat it like a slur you are contributing to the marginalisation of people who identify with that word (asexuals and aromantics, for example, who are not included in "LGBT") and erase the decades of work in the 80s and 90s of people who fought to reclaim the use of that word for the sake of inclusivity… just so some people won't be made uncomfortable by having to adjust to the modern accepted meaning.
Can't complete my taxes, need financial help. Show more
I need my adjusted income from last year, I don't have any of my paperwork because everything got thrown out or is in storage, Intuit deleted my TurboTax account and my adjusted income with it, and the only way to get that info from the IRS is to have them mail it to your last known address (which is in Los Angeles) or they can get it to you digitally if they can verify your identity by texting a phone number you pay for.
My past-due balance is $75. Help?
there's gonna be a Crypt Of The Necrodancer x Legend of Zelda crossover on the Switch in spring

I have an on-site interview tomorrow with a small place in SF.
Kinda refreshing after Roblox put me through some three or four phone calls, a six hour on-site, and then a four hour on-site (an hour and a half train ride away) just to tell me "we liked your hustle, but too junior".
Fingers crossed for this one turning out better.
me a few days ago: skateboarding in the rain, loses traction and slips on those bumpy yellow things on curb cuts “WHAT EVEN THE FUCK ARE THESE FOR??? ugh… ironically probably some curb cut effect thing im not aware of that benefits disabled people in some way, so im not gonna be an asshole about it”
today’s google sketch: “theyre so blind people dont die in traffic”
me: “oh… how did u know i was wondering about that”
I didn't get the job.
Once again, "We felt that you have great potential, but we need someone who can hit the ground running. We'd love to revisit this in the future, though."
I've been told this exact same thing no less than a dozen times in the past six months.
I'm tired, I'm hungry, and I want to sleep in my own bed in my own apartment.
I'm so tired of doing this.
Today begins day four of waiting for a response. Internal sources say I really ought to get a response today, but I'm taking the radio silence as a good sign, because rejections come much faster than this. (The rest of this is me asking for financial aid.) Show more
