If my path has been conventional, then I think convention must be redefined, but perhaps that wouldn’t be so bad after all.
Self identifying as agender and an artist and the rest not withstanding, now based out of Seattle, hi, I’m Willow.
I’m so excited. It’s finally coming. We’ve been asking for this for so long. It’s so long overdue, it’s a wonder the system is even still running, and glitches?! Don’t get me started on that, we don’t even know what it’s doing anymore. The original program is so far off track that… Well, we don’t really know anymore.
Distractions, you can see which ones weren’t, but most were. Get a “good job” omg how many DECADES did we waste on THAT distraction. Chasing every red herring offered, “well if you only had an education”. Chase that! It works, there’s evidence, success even! You could be one of those! But instead you end up with one of the ones with piles of debt and barely scraping by week to week. “Well, you didn’t work hard enough obviously, or maybe you picked the wrong major” of course, the blame must be laid at your feet, it couldn’t be a system built around the myth of advantage, to keep everyone always chasing it. And examples?! We can point to plenty, you just did it wrong, of course you did it wrong. “Pay it off then” Scoffing internally, recognizing the futility of that, so many distractions.
