I am a female (not that it should make a difference, but apparently in our society it does…)
From the day I moved out of my parent’s house, I’ve supported myself 100%, not because they don’t love me but because they can’t support my dreams financially.
For over two years I schlepped 2-for-1’s and shots to pay for my rent, a used car, and tuition at a community college.
Now I’m attending the University of MN and I depleted all of my savings just so I wouldn’t have to take out a loan this semester. I’m trying to get by debt free and it seems near impossible.
I’m majoring in journalism, a profession I consider a civic duty. I know my salary will never break 5 figures and I’m OK with that because I’ve learned to live within my means.
I am the 99%.
The sites will all feature anti-spying banners on that day, to both protest NSA and related types of government spying and intrusion, as well we as to raise awareness about it. This follows in the footsteps of massive sites like Wikipedia and Google doing something similar, even going on “strike” a couple of years ago, to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
