Is it arrogant if I asking my group if they mind if I basically copy-edit their work for our group wiki? We’re going to be assessed as a group, so I’d like them to go over my section too, but ultimately I’m a natural editor, and I think it will improve our grade. I’m not trying to brag, I just have a history of editing. I’m an okay, maybe a little above average writer (not here obviously, but when I put the effort in) but when it comes to making other peoples’ writing better, I’m pretty fucking great. In my first office job at age 16 I was subbing all the outgoing correspondence, and since then I’ve subbed for newspapers, magazines, and political speech writers.  

Is there a polite way of saying, your content is great, but your language needs work?

I have never had so much trouble writing an assignment piece in my life and it is only 200-400 words this is ridiculous, I have no idea what I’m saying and I don’t know how to frame anything within such a small word limit and I can’t coordinate the arguments of 4 other people fucccckkkkkkkkkkkk i have been on this all day and only written 32 words.

My hands are so cold my laptop isn’t recognising my fingers on the touch pad.

How is it that my love for Jane Austen adaptations has never permeated my blog?

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part II)

The St Louis County Council meeting was a fiery afar, as residents from across the county demanded Darren Wilson’s arrest, answers for Mike Brown’s death, and expressed frustration at their own police force being turned on them like they were enemies of the state. #staywoke #farfromover

This is one of the most insulting things that I have ever seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dip a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on for a couple hours and then have audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard every joke about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel so bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( and many other foreign continents/nations) proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media)  but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture just to have white women play the role of an “African Queen” proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people. 

I’m so damn tired of white nonsense.

They go out of their way not to hire us and then they profit off us.
