Honestly any social injustice in the world bothers me but there are some, of course, that hit closer to my heart.

Recently the "Kill the Gays" bill passed in Uganda and the issues LGBT people are facing in places all over the world have really put a lot in perspective for me as far as how lucky I am to live in America even with the discrimination I may face here.

Not to mention, if you're applying for a job, there's a hierarchy in terms of educational institution you'd been in.
A person that graduated from a Miami Arts Institute gets a foot on the door compared to a person who had the same education but came from a community college.



Furthermore, there are fields of study that need some questions. Do we really need thousands upon thousands anthropology graduates?


I'm a poetry major and I still have a job.

It's stupid to think that employment opportunities are the same for every major. People who think like that obviously need more practical education.

Oh this is a good one. A lot of the social problems I deal with today rooted from when I was really young. I was hit a lot and was bullied at school and at home. I decided to stand up for myself at home and I got punished for it. I felt so powerless that I was being hit so much and there was nothing I could do about it.

I became very solitary to stay out of trouble. It was very difficult but I made it work. I started playing a lot of video games and watched TV to keep myself entertained. Obviously, I was very socially awkward. I think I grew out of it for the most part when I had to work in teams at school and at work. Still I am an introvert and like being alone but at least now I rarely suffer from social anxiety (being at family occasions are always an exception though).

I really like going to movies and restaurants by myself though. I am a girl so people keep telling me its dangerous to do that but whatever. It makes me happy. :/

-Institutions, I hate them and most forms of bureaucracy. They are such a pain in the ass.
People get reduced to a number sitting in line. I almost had my appendix burst waiting. (*note = they did not attend me, I had to go to another hospital, turns out my appendix was about to burst and they had to operate immediately, it sucked)

*announcement voice* number 4023 has just died from blood poisoning please put his name on this form and sign here and x here and check here and fill here. Next in line...

screw that

the thing with hospitals is the nurses/doctors are understaffed, while the management people in the hospital (i.e. people who do nothing) are overstaffed.

so yeah I agree this bureaucracy sh*t is annoying.
