I don’t want Wrestling History 101 to be a bad note so as a peace offering, here is Daniel Bryan (who at the time was frequently called a Goatface for obvious reasons) meeting his Muppet brethren. For some reason, wrestling and Muppets go together really well.
REASONS TO LOVE PROFESSOR MINERVA MCGONAGALL

Margaret Atwood and her knitting.

"It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”"
thats exactly what bothers me about “forget money follow your dreams” like lol ok poor people just stop being poor and do things start a business
just acknowledge we live in a capitalist society and that following a dream isn’t achievable for everyone like. be real. i’m a positive person but i’m not full of illusions about how things work.
IT’S TURNING ON
WHAT IN THE HELL

THE SPEAKERS WORK, THE HEADPHONE JACK WORKS, THERE’S NO CRACKS

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
this is legit terrible. i wish it were true, but you know, i live in the real world.
it’s ridiculous to believe, and to propagate the belief, that all you need to succeed in life or be happy is passion for something. if that were universally true, i wouldn’t be one of so many un(der)employed, broke, educated, and desperate people. now, this is no one’s business, but i’m on social assistance. and i have an honours degree from one of the best universities from my country. i studied something i love, and while i don’t quite regret it, it’s really hard to find a job in that field.
this comic also doesn’t take into account the other, perhaps more mundane, realities of life: what the cost of living actually is in most places, the likelihood of student debt, the intersections of systemic oppression that underline many people’s experiences and colour a great deal of their lives, and more.
(also, to successfully run a business - like a yarn shop - you don’t need to love knitting. what you need is business acumen, customer service skills, either to be good at bookkeeping or have an accountant on retainer, understand the supply and demand for yarn in your area, and more logistics. knitting barely factors into it. this is absurd.)
