“We all have a thirst for wonder. It’s a deeply human quality. Science and religion are both bound up with it. What I’m saying is, you don’t have to make stories up, you don’t have to exaggerate. There’s wonder and awe enough in the real world. Nature’s a lot better at inventing wonders than we are.”—Carl Sagan, Contact (via sweetcalamity)
“My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white. My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I’m told they look orange in the night. My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it’s silver when it’s wet, and all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet.”—Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends (via larmoyante)
Hello tumblr - I assume most of you will get this in the morning, assuming you are from the US. If not, sorry to generalize, but maybe you can still help. See, it’s almost seven AM here, and despite taking sleeping pills 2 hours ago, I am still awake. Because my natural sleep schedule is close to the reverse of “normal.”
But my parents are forcing me to earn money or get another loan I can’t afford. I also am terrified of driving and would not be a safe driver for a number of reasons, even if I could learn in one summer. Oh, and if possible I wouldn’t be using the phone all day because I have social anxiety issues with it.
This being the case, I really need a way to earn some money remotely. If anyone has any suggestions, from mailing letters, to remote data entry, or especially anything to do with writing, creative or otherwise, I’d do it, for pretty cheap. I’m pretty desperate. My parent’s don’t much care if waking up early would cause a mental break down, they want me making money. I’m just trying to make it though the summer.
Any suggestions at all are more than welcome.
And I got one suggestion (thank you!) to check out Chacha, but the parent told me that that is supplemental and I need something for it to be supplemental to. My dad is telling me to apply to jobs that I am in no way qualified or prepared for because at least it will show that “I’m trying.” Positions that require knowledge I don’t have, hours I can’t keep, a live in job helping helping keep an autistic 25yrs old guy I’ve never met company. WAT EVEN.
HALP. I don’t want to apply for these. I can’t get them - because I can’t do them if I get the job.
Anything - sig boosts, suggestions, google searches. I was told that “It would be very nice to see some progress, rather than excuses. I’m not saying what has to be done, but…”
