  • Amazing news: Due to me working in a library full-time, I qualified for the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program for student debt forgiveness. Which means most of my student loans (my Sallie Mae ones) are 100% forgiven. If you have a public service job, and you qualify, it could forgive your loans too. Below is more info on the program.

    The information below describes the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program. It includes the eligibility requirements and the process for tracking your progress toward qualifying for PSLF. This information can also be found in the PSLF Fact Sheet and the Dear Borrower Letter, which can be downloaded and printed.

    On January 31, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released an Employment Certification Package to help borrowers track their progress toward qualifying for PSLF. The PSLF Employment Certification Package includes:

    Ever so true. My thirties have been soooooo much better than my twenties, and I am mightily looking forward to my forties.

  • "I’m 36 and I am at a really good place in my life right now. And when I was your age, in college, I wasn’t. So don’t you let anyone tell you that college or your 20’s should automatically be the best part of your life, or that growing up and being an adult means everything goes downhill. That’s bullshit. I am so happy right now as a middle-aged person. That’s totally a thing. So don’t worry about growing up."

    thecharactercomma:

    Hyphen ( - )

    Used to join two words into one word

    • Ex: African-American, Medium-density, job-specific, etc.

    “last minute” vs. “last-minute”

    • “last-minute” is an adjective. [It was a last-minute save.]
    • “last minute” are two words, an adjective and a noun. [Do not wait until the last minute.]

    How to do it on Microsoft Word: just hit the hyphen (-) button instead of a space between words.

    En-dash ( – )

    Used to replace the words “to” and “through.”

    • Ex: 11:50 – 12:40, Monday – Friday

    How to do it on Microsoft Word: Type a space after the word, hit the hyphen button twice, space again, and then type your next word. So like: “word (-)(-) word.”

    Em-dash ( — )

    Used to separate phrases. Often used in place of a comma

    • Ex: “The graphic design students—being both creative and rebellious—are generally difficult to control.”

    How to do it on Microsoft Word: after your word, hit the hyphen button twice without spaces, then type the next word. So like: “word(-)(-)word.”

  • So I was watching that preview pilot episode of NBC’s ‘A-to-Z’.

    I really hope that they change that MLK joke because that wasn’t funny, and it was made even more problematic that the writers behind this ‘joke’ were mostly likely white. Like I am 90% sure they were considering the dearth of POC writers in American TV.

    If you don’t understand what I was referring to, the mains of the show, Adam and Zelda (hence the show’s title) meet up for a drink a bit before halfway through the episode. Adam gets too overzealous and oversharing about possibility of meeting Zelda at a concert in 2012 and how he imagined a future with kids with that girl, which is creepy so I don’t blame Zelda for being uncomfortable (although it’s probably because he hit it on the money than being rightfully weirded out about it, I stopped watching it after the scene). Zelda shoots Adam down hard and leaves him at the bar. The bartender, feeling sorry for Adam, tells him that he’ll gave him a ‘Martini Luther King Jr.’ on the house. At first I thought that was kinda weird to use MLK like that even with the Martin = Martini idea until it hit me that the show was implying he was getting the drink because Adam was ‘shot down’. I want to think that it was maybe an overreaching on my part, but remember Adam asked Zelda if something was wrong with her drink and he thought that she ordered a Martini Narvatilova. If you are into tennis, you know who that the drink was referring to one of the all time greats, Martina Narvatilova, who is a lesbian. Now earlier in the episode, Zelda came to Wallflower, the online dating agency that Adam works at, to get a refund because she kept getting matched up with girls because the dating app thought she was a lesbian (that was hella problematic too because hearing about gross jokes about bisexual women wasn’t fun, and that uncomfortable feeling that Zelda may have gotten offended that she was matched up with girls, which is odd that, considering she could’ve called Wallflower and told her that the algorithm they were using were matching her with girls when she was straight and to fix it and refund her for the days lost, but it’s obvious the writers aren’t really well-versed on this stuff). So the line was an obvious clapback to that.

    So, yeah. Using a MLK joke (or any jokes about his assassination) is in so poor taste and disrespectful. Using it to imply that someone was shot down without any thoughtful context is pretty racist. I don’t think that the writers are racist or intentionally wanted to be racist, but it doesn’t distract that the implication is there and it was a racist way of using it.

    NBC has been fucking it up with their depictions of race for decades so it should be no surprise, especially as of late (having that brief spell of [great] Black sitcoms in the 80s and 90s with Cosby Show, Different World, Amen, 227 and Fresh Prince of Bel-air don’t make up for it), but that actually taken me aback because I didn’t expect that in hopefully I thought would be a cute show would do something callous like that, intentionally or not.

    Hopefully they will change it although considering the show is supposed to premiere on Thursday (?), so I am doubtful. Well, it’s already too late for me. I can handle offensiveness in a show, but that’s crossing my boundaries and lost me as a potential viewer.

  • mybigfatthesis:

    TUMBLR. This has been the most RIDICULOUS semester I have had to date. I have been in a dark editing hole for the past semester taking little breaks so I avoid my complete transformation into a  naked mole rat (the fiercest of the mole rats).

    But back to the point at hand: this has been a semester of battles. A battle to prove that A) a film about fat folks is VALID and worth creating B) a battle to create a film thesis in a film PROGRAM and C) starting a project from scratch after the institution finally accepted a drastic change in my thesis.

    It’s been rough y’all.
    BUT I wanted to share with you all what I’ve created: a short film about the importance of fat visibility.I want to especially thank the AMAZING women featured in this film:

    There are many more women who have been interviewed and many more folks that I would like to interview so I am still keeping my eye on the prize: the feature length documentary about Fatshionista! LJ + Plus Size Blogging + Body Positivity. There are just so many stories to tell and more of a ruckus to create.

    After being told time and time again that fat bodies don’t matter (even from my institution) I’m presenting it on my own terms.

    I will be crowdfunding in the coming months to continue the second round of production so don’t fret—there shall be more hot and fierce fatties on the big screen for you! Share it, like it, and tell me what you want to see more of!

    ALSO if you haven’t seen it, check out another awesome fat-focused documentary: FATTITUDE! Donate to THEIR kickstarter because if we can have 20,000 remakes of the same, tired ol’ blockbuster. Why can’t we have a flood of uplifting films about fat bodies? You can find their Kickstarter here.
