This is a good write up on her meaningful contribution. One of, what I hope to be dozens, that should spring forth in her honor. I would like to believe that even though she is gone too soon, that she left behind many young stars that will shine in her wake. Read more

You’re right.  This is not just horrifying brutality and misogyny (although it’s certainly that), but this guy is off his rocker.

Yeah but this woman was a slut and like “rough sex” so that means anything that happens to her is ok. I know every time I have rough sex, someone nearly dies. Its completely normal.

I work as the to-go person at a restaurant. You know what I make per hour? $4.80. My point is, that while I don't expect to be tipped like a server (I worked for years as a server, but chose to do the to-go position because it had been a few years since I'd served and wanted to ease back into it), it is not "fine" not Read more

I especially agree with #2. How on earth do I get the experience needed for a job, when every single job wants experience beforehand? This was especially hard for me considering I had just got out of college. Before I went to college, everyone said that having a college degree was so important to getting a good Read more

I gotta say, it's disheartening to read essays like this. It has a certain air of entitlement that makes me question the persons sanity. Really, you expect a resume tailored to your job posting and company, and an interview full of enthusiasm about past jobs, current jobs, and future jobs, with clear, exact job Read more
