Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
So this post gave me an idea.
Reblog this and I will write one to two paragraphs in your submit box based off your blog and how I would write you if you were a character in my novel. I’ll check out as much of your blog as I can to figure out as much about you as I can.
If this somehow goes big (which I doubt will happen) I will still write one for everyone, though it may take a while!
If you don’t have a submit box, I’ll write one in your ask box, though it will obviously be shorter.

People spend so much time talking about taking care of your body and the importance of being physically fit.
But I don’t think people spend enough time talking about taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally.
I’ve been super stressed by personal situations at work. I had the past two days off. Normally, I would have laid around the house and rested because standing on my feet all day for work kills my back and feet.
But I decided to have what I declared a “bake-a-palooza” during my two off days. On Sunday, I was in my kitchen from 12pm to 6pm. Then, the next day from 2pm to 7pm. The kitchen is where I feel most comfortable. It’s where I learn and grow and feel alive.
Two batches of homemade croissants, a batch of checkerboard cookies with chocolate on the back, bacon bark, and a batch of cake batter truffles later, and I’ve come to terms with my current situation. I had a great night’s rest last night before going back to work this morning.
And I was thrust right back into the same awkward, embarrassing situation that I’ve been in but it didn’t cause me to want to run and hide.
In the midst of baking up a storm, I came to realize that outside of this situation, where I am at now is so much better for me careerwise than where I was. So, I’ve decided not to let it bother me. I’ve decided to laugh at it and keep moving forward.
If I had spent my two off days laying around the house to tend to my physical wellbeing, I would have just spent time dwelling on how horrible the situation was. My back and feet are aching and I’m glad to have tomorrow off so that I can lay around and rest up because now that I’m okay mentally, I need to rest up physically.
So, guys, take care of yourself and realize that, sometimes, taking time to go to your happy place is important because being mentally and emotionally fit is just as important as your physically fitness.
