my friend looks older to people i guess
and so when we go out
they’ll ask how old she was when she had me
and she looks at them like
she is 6 months older than me
he was talking and my mind was just
my psychology/world history teacher was really into art and music history
so i just have all these random facts in my mind
and i was at a job interview and the interviewer asked if i had any questions
and all i could think about was the influence of racism in the development of country music and the impact of the enlightenment on the development of neoclassicism in post-revolutionary france
and i sat there all like no?
I get really frustrated with the whole Monstanto shit going on because I can’t afford the farmer’s markets and I can’t afford organic foods. Like… what am I supposed to do, you know? I don’t want my kids to eat some fucked up food. I already do all I can to avoid high fructose corn syrup (buying things here made with actual sugar is expensive) and don’t buy boxed foods (well except for Feral Baby’s Gerber stuff which I’m stopping soon). Aside from growing my own food (which I can’t since I don’t have the space) what can folks like me do? I make too much to get on food stamps and WIC. The farmers markets around here don’t even accept WIC and food stamps anyway. Like hell am I going to Whole Foods, that place is such a rip off.
I really hate how supermarket produce quality changes significantly per store chain and neighborhood. Places like Trader Joe’s don’t even sell that great of produce and mostly have processed foods so it’s like wtf, what are we all supposed to do?
Like yes we’re fighting against Monstanto with writing letters, etc. but they keep winning all these court cases and now things like corn don’t even taste the same.
i think about this too.
but with the added bonus of the stomach wrenching feeling caused by the knowledge that people i care about are being directly harmed by the things monsanto is getting away with and trying to do…
it’s just a thing that’s always there. the thought of knowing about all the horrible things, but knowing that you still have to find affordable things to eat.
