Taking money out of my pocket
Art and culture are nice, but it's money that makes the world go around. In a moment of bad clarity I had a rude awakening today when I found out that a small raise wasn't coming my way. Not a lot of money, but hey a dollar is a dollar. And I was looking forward to getting a small retroactive raise based on this money. I found out that everyone else in my job title are getting this raise but me, due to what department in my organization that I work. So in that moment all thoughts of the accomplishments of mankind were driven from my mind and all I could think of was how pissed I was.
There is nothing really noble about going without. I want to see a world where more people have and not one where most people have not.
ta ta for now
