*liberal friend gets super excited that they got a job at a non-profit*
*writes* “finally, I won’t be selling my soul anymore!”
*I write* yeah, you’re not selling it as much, but you still are”
*posts article about the non-profit industrial complex written by Incite (a womanist collective)*
*everyone calls me a buzzkill, liberal friend says* “it’s not like that”
Ughhhh this! So much this! Sorry, I’m upset and this is relevant to me and right now. I’ve avoided looking into nonprofits because I know they’re not all they’re cracked up to be, but now I’m just stuck at this movie theater, because I’m certainly not interested in a corporate job (if any place would even hire me).
Should I just say fuck my values and get a bullshit job just to feel adequate? I just want to work in an archive or a library. I fucking hate that I basically need to be in grad school to even get a paraprofessional job!!!!Source: kropotkitten
I didn’t get the supervisor job! They said they’re worried about my ability to jump on registers and sell and stuff. They’re gonna put me on box office and concessions more, and they say I’ll be a perfect candidate in a few months.
Fuck that! I’ve worked here for five years! I’ve done concessions enough times! I stopped doing it for a while after I missed a shift due to a school-related nervous breakdown. My boss was s letting me stay away from people for a while. I’m not in that place anymore! I can fucking do it!
I’m sick of feeling inadequate. Like I’ll never get a decent job! I have a college degree with a really good GPA, and decent experience; why won’t anyone give me a chance????!!!!

Sorry for all the annoying posts. I’m probably going to delete them at some point.
empirescollapse said: Why do you hate them
Part of it is that going to a theater and watching a movie isn’t really an appealing activity to me. But I mostly hate them because I’ve worked in one for almost five years.
