So you’ve just graduated from college and you want to change the world. Good for you. The non-profit sector seems like a natural place for a justice-minded person such as yourself, and nonprofits are almost always hiring because the turnover rate is so high. But you may find the social justice industry to be… a little unjust. Here are a few tips and tricks for how to avoid being exploited by a nonprofit.
- Don’t work at one. Seriously. Working at a non-profit generally involves at least some level of exploitation. (When was the last time you saw a non-profit with a union?) If this doesn’t deter you, figure out what you’re willing to give up: Is it sleep? Weekends? Seeing your friends? Most non-profit workers do not work 9-5. Working nights and weekends is common. Paid overtime is not. Non-profits tend to make you feel like if you are not willing to work 24/7 then you are not “down for the cause.” That’s bullshit. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like you’re not “down enough” because you are not willing to sacrifice your well-being for “the movement.” People who don’t take care of themselves burn out and often become jaded and bitter. You can’t sustain “the movement” if you don’t sustain yourself.
- Admit you’re wrong.
- Don’t do it again.
- Call out others.
- making up excuses
- saying that person hurt your feelings when they called you out
cheesefags: SAGE DERBY. from Chris’ Cheese-Mongers at St. Lawrence Market. by Jordaan & Kyle
Derby is a British cheese that’s like cheddar, but usually younger. It doesn’t go through the “cheddaring” process where blocks of curds are stacked to expel moisture. Sage derby is made by mixing curds with sage leaves and sometimes green corn or spinach juice. Wikipedia says marigold leaves or parsley can also be used.
Anyway, this cheese is real tasty. The texture is crumbly, and is somehow dry and moist - it’s like it has the texture of a dry cheese but isn’t. It simultaneously melts and crumbles in your mouth. Nice.
Has a really interesting flavour profile. It starts out like a medium sharp kinda old cheddary cheese, but then makes this steady transition to having a really refreshing herby flavour. It’s not like a havarti where you taste the cheesiness and there’s just some herb or jalapeno or whatever shit in it, it really all just works as a unified flavour. And the herby flavour isn’t totally sagey, it’s just a sort of fresh, leafy flavour. And that flavour doesn’t take over, it just transforms the cheese flavour into something lighter. For a heavy cheese, you really don’t notice how much you ate…
Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes? That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood. Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
how this is canon i don’t even know but
Is there anything about Dylan O’Brien you can tell us that not many people would know?
