I’m an idiot. From now on, no matter what happens… if you wanna punch me in the face, or spit in my mouth while I’m asleep, it doesn’t matter. I’m always gonna be watching your back. I think that we both have a light in our stomachs. A special light, like E.T. And the team needs somebody to light the way. My stomach light needs your stomach light. We can all phone home together.
What do you mean by “applicant self filter”?
as in, applicants will talk themselves out of applying (so it automatically culls a bunch of eligible people that the employer doesn’t have to sift through because they never end up applying) by seeing the experience requirement and going “well I don’t have that, so I guess I can’t/won’t apply” when in fact they might be good at the job and well suited to it and have the relevant experience.
Today my friend Amir said that the “3-5 years experience” is there to create an applicant self-filter, particularly on entry-level jobs and it blew my mind because I’ve never thought about it like that before and IT IS AND THAT IS EVIL
BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN *WORKING*
AND THAT IS

I’m pretty happy with where I am in life and I wouldn’t want to uproot someone from their own just so they could be closer to me. I suppose I’ll answer this by saying I wish I had more opportunities to see people like Clare.

L) Not that I’m not great or smart or funny or cool, but that I’m not great or smart or funny or cool enough.
O) Green! (Why yes, I am that redhead with green eyes you read about in every single romance, scif, and fantasy book.)

z) i am good! i just got back from the last game of my summer soccer league, which we won, so i’m feeling pretty great about soccer and also about my foot’s ability to foot, which has been questionable recently but now seems to have been solidified.
y) i would like to go to grad school! just not right away. and i feel that if/when i did go, i would want to do it in literature, which is about 0% useful to me in my career, it’s just something i want to do.
