Today's Social Proof
Preface, well kind of... I recently had a peculiar interaction with the people from an old company I used to work for. It made me realize just how susceptible to influence people are and how it only takes one person to make someone change their whole opinion about you.
My Fandom + 2 Favorites
1. Supernatural First and foremost the most underrated show on TV right now has been running for 15 years and is known to have one of the most devoted fandoms no matter small of a group we are. Supernatural is special. You can tell as soon as you start watching it. The brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester, fight to the death (literally) to keep what is left of their family together and be good people. They consistently save people from monsters (vampires, ghouls, wendigos, etc) and sometimes from really terrible people. They also save the world from the apocalypse at least 5 times.
There is a reason why when V for Vendetta came out people bought the Guy Fawkes mask and why now it is common to see it used as a symbol of protest. Wearing the mask during protest is banned in Canada and carries a 10 year prison sentence. Importing the mask is banned in many Arabic nations because of it's use during the Arab Spring. It shows up in almost every major social and political revolution across the world since Alan Moore reintroduced it to us in V for Vendetta.
My ignorance was just as violent and as much of a accomplice to racism as those who are silent
On September 20, 2016 around 4pm Keith Lamont Scott, a traumatic brain injury survivor, was killed by a black police officer in Charlotte, NC. They approached Scott because they thought they saw an handgun and when Scott exited his vehicle with his hands down he was fatally shot by the officer who was in plain clothes. The people of Charlotte rioted for 3 days straight. Nine year old Zianna Oliphant went to the city council and the above video was her message.

for the love of my beloved country
I work at Amazon. I have been there for less than a year. I started around Peak 2019 or aka when everyone floods Amazon.com for two months to buy everything that they think they might want for the various holidays lumped together at the end of the year. Amazon pays decently so I, like most around me, was happy to take the offered overtime. I faithfully worked more than 40 hours a for almost three months. Then it stopped. Then Covid-19 struck the United States and suddenly it was back along with extra pay all across the board. At the time it was enough to pull me out of bed for 4 nights a week and work 12 hour shifts back to back, sometimes even 5 nights. It was exhausting but my bills didn't stop and honestly I just didn't know what else to do. So I kept my schedule.
