I don’t need help. I need passion.

I’m not picky. I’m particular. My privilege is that I was always good enough to have options.

You have to do something no one else can do. That’s when you accomplish something. Until then you’re kind of just dinking around.

More food than I can eat, more time than I can use, more people than I can love. Blessed.

Asking for higher or lower minimum wage feels like trying to debate the value of X in a 100 variable calculus equation when no one in the debate know the value of the other variables. That’s how pretty much all economic debates are when they are discussed among the populace.

I don’t see things as negative which is very different from saying I don’t prefer some of these things. I don’t prefer them, but I don’t see them as negative.

Poorly designed systems can leverage integrity of the individual to create corruption on a large scale. Then, I ask, who is to blame: the individuals or something larger than them?

Acting class is my church, and missing it is a sin.
