Wasted Advice

March 1

Greetings. Welcome to Wasted Advice, wherein you ask for advice and I continue to get drunk and advise you. We both win. You can ask me the questions you can’t ask your resident advisor.

how do you balance staying aware and involved, with keeping yourself mentally healthy, given that the world is shit?
Read, BITCH u don’t. Idk what the fick is happebing here. Love urself! Take care! Love ur friends! Make soup to share! Shine bright like a diamond! Rhianna gets it [heart emoji] listen to her. Our goddess. Our momther.

how do you form community when it seems like everybody is shitty to each other? and especially when power dynamics aren’t respected in a lot of space
Find gentle friends, talk about your gentle nature openly and transparently

if we were to make queer/trans symbols that didn’t use the male/female symbols as a base, what shapes would we use instead?
Shapes of planets and stars !!!!

my friends won’t agree on what is the most queer animal. what is your opinion on this??
I AM TBE MOST QUEER ANIMAL!!! I AM BIG GAY!!

how do you decide when a thing is problematic enough to completely give up? like, if you have a hobby with a lot of problematic stuff, but that shit gets you through the day. I know there is no ethical consumption under capitalism, but still think about this a lot.
What happened? What’s going on?? I don’t give a fuck. Fuck all of you. Don’t die.

how do you deal with being forced to work with toxic and abusive people, because they are in positions of power and no one will hold them accountable for their actions? how to cope when everyone gaslights you about their cruel behavior? esp. as a marginalized person
Fuck that shit!!! Abusive ppl are abusive! U don’t have to tolerate that TBH I could never work with anyone who I know is abusive!! Stay strong stay safe! Just know ur better then that and u don’t deserve that kind of stress!! Ily!! Kiss kiss bb

what do I do if I am a work-a-holic, but also my work helps people so I have even less reason to take breaks?
Ur work is only meaningful if you take care of urself my dude

Are you a “La La fan”?
What does this Mean???? Ew Tbh
