After two years of crazy anxiety brought on by an NYC unemployment hearing that kept getting postponed and postponed and postponed (x’s 10), I finally had the hearing last Monday. Today I got the judge’s decision in the mail…
I DON’T HAVE TO PAY BACK THE MONEY. CASE CLOSED. LEAVE ME ALONE, OLD EMPLOYERS AND THANK YOU JUDGE.
Seriously this was one of the most stressful things I’ve ever been forced to deal with (usually I can just ignore my problems away). I know it isn’t bad compared to all the other shit going on in the world, but it was eating away at my psyche. I felt like I couldn’t move forward with my life…it was weird.
TWO YEARS. Justice is not swift, I’ll tell you that.
I’m freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Who wants to paaaaaaaaaaaarty? I’m annoooooooooying!
“Attacking femaleness, deriding ‘girly stuff’ and rolling your eyes at ‘women’s issues’, declaring yourself a ‘tomboy’ who gets along better with men because women are silly or pretty or whatever ― these are expressions of internalized sexism. If that’s the way you feel about your own sex you’ll be doomed to feel inferior no matter what you achieve in life.”—Emily Maguire, Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture (via starsgowaltzing)
