Please help me get stable while I am in a bit of a financial bind

"As I work to complete my program, I realize I cannot work any kind of “regular” job. Since I am trained as and enjoy working as a photographer, I intend to freelance to sustain myself as I study. These last couple of months have been particularly difficult as I’ve tried to maintain."

BHM, fedi boycot 1/2 

I'm boycotting the fedi this month for .

W.E did a defed for reasons of antiblackness, & the debate became about being racist towards primarily non black poc, meaning the fedi again shows it doesn't care abt antiblackness; the convo centered ppl NOT Black. That's a problem.

On top of the fact that white ppl were doing what they could to erase Blk voices or being demeaning towards them whilst misusing AAVE, bc it didnt serve their narrative. And they weren't checked 🙃

Please engage w what I say
Not what you want me to have said
Not with your projections
And not w ur own insecurities

There's a lack of ethical engagement on here and I think it occurs because of several reasons, but none outweight the negative

Personal notice 

Any sign of the same nonsense I've endured on PV will have me delete this account with no questions asked fast.

I am professional scholar and artist, and I take my work seriously enough to no longer make space for the bs.

I will NOT take the abuse with grace as I've done for nearly 3 yrs.
I'm here to learn and to educate. BC that is literally my job.

Now lets go

i can't reply to all the responses but I will say that now i dont feel as terrible

Show thread

if i am writing to a professor that is unknown to me and i unknown to them bc i am asking them to be on my defense jury

should i include a piece of my thesis?

like the intro?

do many phd students feel abandoned by their program ?

i guess i wanna know if feeling this way is normal or perhaps a one off?

If anyone expects a lot of writing about Puerto Rico from this account

Know that i have no emotional strength to do that right now and that I move differently now

After Maria, a lot changed for me in that regard
