Do we have any updates on the Korean-American girl who was under threat from her Mom?July 9, 2013 at 6:42 pm #8001RenaeParticipant
I’ve been wondering about her as well. What’s the scoop?July 10, 2013 at 8:19 am #8096relinParticipant
Man oh man. Shit has been crazy for the past weeks. I’ve worked 60 hour work weeks and have been getting my life ready in order to move out (constant perusing of craigslist). Yes that’s what all those posts have inspired me to do.
I don’t think the funds have reached $400 but it’s alright I’ve figured out a rough budget of what I can do for the next 6 months. For 1.5 months I’ll be living by myself and afterwards my boyfriend will be moving down and I’ll be living with him. Per month = Tuition $1000, Rent + utilities $500 OR Car insurance + gas $250, Textbooks free because pirating/library, Food $60. (Either I pay rent or pay car insurance because I could possibly live in my car for 1.5 months. I’ve read forums of how to live in a car and it seems feasible.) As of a body update, I’m 146 and have been trying to eat as much free ice cream and exercise as much as possible before I move out and am restricted by a limited budget.
Thank you Thomas for your posts. Thanks Thomas, Asta, Real Amy, Nina and everyone for telling me I shouldn’t listen to what my mom’s standard of beauty is when she calls me fat and disgusting. Thanks for giving me a reality check that it’s not normal for moms to do this.
My move out date is planned August 19.
I think my story’s pretty boring / incredibly incriminating. It has way too much personal detail that would give out my location and exact Korean community that is oh so gossipy, so it’s best if I just give email updates.
What is your email?July 10, 2013 at 8:26 am #8098relinParticipant
I saw this on your profile. What on earth is a libertarian socialist Thomas?July 10, 2013 at 12:22 pm #8147
Briefly put, a libertarian socialist believes that society’s wealth needs to be organized to benefit of all, not for the wealth of a few, but does not believe in a Vanguard party or an over-reaching State or a State ideology. It’s akin to Anarchism. It has NOTHING to do with Libertarianism, which worships laissez-faire capitalism.August 16, 2013 at 4:21 pm #11570
I want an update on the beautiful Korean girl, @relin. I know she said that she didn’t want to give a lot of information out so as to not tip-off the community she lives in, but I’d like to know if the move-out is on, or if some other solution has been found. It’s none of my business, but I want to know anyway :)August 17, 2013 at 6:55 pm #11647derekParticipant
@ThomasSeay starting to agree more and more on Anarchism, especially after Dmitri Orlov had his blog series on Kropotkin.August 20, 2013 at 12:43 pm #11770August 20, 2013 at 12:51 pm #11773RobModerator
@derek- Dmitro Orlov is cool. Haven’t read him in a while, but I always found him incisive and non-dogmatic. Also, funny. Met him a few years back at a conference too- seemed like a legit dude, easy to talk with and not self-aggrandizing at all.
