Could you defend your eating meat? Not in any way trying to start and argument even as a vegetarian, just think it would be interesting.

I totally can’t. Eating meat is bad for your health, for the environment, and it’s cruel. The only defense I have is that it can be pretty difficult to not eat meat in American culture…that I was raised as a meat eater, and I really really like it. 

Somehow this seems worse than coming up with some BS defense of my meat-eating about how humans having evolved as omnivores (we also evolved as hunter gatherers). But this is the truth…meat is bad and I eat it because it is often the best-tasting, simplest option.

Some harsh but very very true words

Guys, this is the truest thing. If you think negatively about your stuff, other people will start to think negatively about it too. Furthermore, if you make yourself think positively about your stuff, eventually you will be positive about it without that positivity needing to be forced.
Treat your art like it’s the best art in the world and chances are no one will notice the mistakes that are so obvious to you.

This is why I stay away from any fanfic summary that goes ’ it’s probably not very good lol’. If you don’t think it’s any good why are you expecting me to read it?

Someone beat me to it. But exactly. If your fanfic summary includes any variation on “Not very good” or “this summary sucks” I will drop that story like a hot rock.  If you have zero confidence in yourself I don’t either.
Same exactly for art. And this is SO incredibly vital if you ever plan to have a career either in writing or art. Quit telling yourself you suck and start repeating until it sticks, “I’M A FREAKING BADASS ROCKSTAR!!!”

Mind=Blown

How have I grown up watching these movies, for some 30+ years and not pondered this…..

This is actually the best explanation I’ve heard so far and this new headcanon/thing has been accepted immediately. 

Thank you.

What is the best way to come to the attention of an organization like NPR that isn't an unpaid, student internship? Foot-in-the-door steps seem impossible post college.

npr:

We pay all of our student interns, for one thing. I would say the following applies to any job:

1. Do your research. When you apply for any job, have a website (it can be a tumblr) with your clips on it. Write a clear, well-researched cover letter. Explain what it is you want to do. Don’t say “your organization” — say “NPR.” Let us know you’re familiar with us. 

2. Network. This doesn’t require much. Follow people from the organization you would like to work on Twitter and Tumblr, so you will find out about jobs (we post all of ours with the hashtag #pubjobs) and can talk about specifics in the interivew.

3. Write. You are a person of the Internet. By this, I mean you have Tumblr and Twitter and all sorts of ways to get your writing and audio out there. Put your audio up on prx. Write stuff and submit it to NPR. (Here’s Code Switch’s tips on doing that.) There’s no reason not to start now.
