Mehek. 20. Graduating college this year. I have opinions and they're all here, so read.

I'm an Indian American Immigrant(First Gen), and a Cisgender Lesbian trying to re-connect with Hinduism and learn Hindi.

I like books, video games, writing and politics.

I made this helpful graphic to show you why I am so stressed.

I have goals:

  • gainful employment so that I can tuck away money for grad school
  • Have sent out some query letters for my novel
  • adopt a greyhound and a kitty
  • live on my own 

I think those are reasonable.

Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.

Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.

Hong Kong’s protesters are using the same “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture used in Ferguson

tears in my eyes; solidarity arising from such horrible situations is bittersweet.

Thanks for sticking around!
I’ve been on tumblr for 5 years now(good lord I’m old), and I’ve been through A LOT on here. Relationships, self esteem/suicide stuff, all that. And some of you have stuck around through a lot of that. 
Thank you. 
I appreciate every single one of you. 
Talk to me if you don’t already. I’d like to get to know more of you

Beige long sleeve top, eggplant pencil skirt, patent shoes and belt. 

Gonna probably post a pic tomorrow with my bag too. I love that this outfit is cobbled together from sales, ross and garage sales(I lucked into a cute black coach bag for 10 dollars)

If I don’t find a job, at least I’ll look flawless

a real job? you mean, like, an internship at the white house?

wow damn it’s almost like our economy functions on stealing labour from hardworking young people, regardless of whether their jobs are “real” or not

Forty-six hours of secretly recordedconversations and meetings within the Federal Reserve were released Friday. These recordings…

Anyone who says that you are “too stupid” to vote realizes the power of your voice and wants to quash it before it has a chance to flourish. Go Register. Go Vote. Sign up for Absentee. Figure out who you’re voting for NOW. Go online, look up what district you’re in, figure out who is representing you and who you want to represent you and vote. Remember, your voice is valuable and important. Last day is Oct 6.

Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?
