We lose weeks like buttons, like pencils.

My name is Emily. I'm a vegan and aspiring ESL teacher living in Little Rock, Arkansas. This is where I share things that, well, I'd like to share.

What good are you?

It’s all well and good to be clever, to read a lot, or to otherwise know more than someone about something. Give yourself a pat on the back for believing yourself to be above others. Congratulations. 

But if you don’t actively work to make the world better, and if you don’t put others before yourself, please don’t consider the non-intellectuals to be worthless. For you, with your privilege, your education, and your apathy, are an embarrassment and a waste. You give nothing back and act as if you are something to aspire to.
