Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
YEAH. JUST. OPEN A FUCKING YARN SHOP. JUST DO IT.
JUST OPEN A YARN SHOP. JUST. WILL IT INTO EXISTENCE.
this fucking bullshit, who made this? good god.
Money may not buy happiness but you know what as a broke miserable black male in America, I can tell you honestly that I’d rather be rich and miserable than broke and miserable at least with money I can buy things to drown the misery if only for a little while
i’d rather cook for a living but law school will pay off more in the end so that’s what i’m gonna do
this post is for the birds & rich people. happiness don’t pay my bills or offer economic security.
"Follow your passion" is really SHITTY advice. This comic is shitty. Clearly meant for an audience who have parents that will always be there to sweep in. Clearly for people who don’t have to worry about the realities of what it actually costs to live on your own.
You get paid for your skills. You get paid to solve people’s problems. That’s it. That’s how you get paid whether it be a minimum-wage job or an office job. Nobody really cares about your ultra-super-secret-special power passion. Sure, there may be employers who do care about that stuff and allow employees time to pursue things on the side BUT that’s after you prove your worth to companies.
Money may not buy happiness, but you know what it does? It allows me to live semi-stress free that I won’t be scrambling for cash. It allows me to help my family and friends when they’re in a tight spot. It allows me to pursue my dream as a fiction writer without being the “starving artist” type. It allows me a chance to build a better life for myself and my family.
All because I’m working a job that isn’t my “passion.”
So fuck this comic. Seriously. Such bullshit.
i have a feeling the kid that did this has never struggled with a real financial crisis.
