Chastising me for my anger as though I don't have any reason to be angry is exactly why I absolutely despise you. Don't you tell me to calm down. I have donated to countless political campaigns, participated in protests, sent tens of thousands of texts on bernie's behalf, would have canvassed for him if I'd gotten the chance, and donated every spare penny i could. I also work a full time job aside from writing nearly every single day of the month so I can actually afford to live. You have some nerve telling me to do something when you take time out of your day every single day just to talk down to me. I'm not interested in hiding my anger just to appeal to pretentious people like you so I can grow my audience. Hilarious. I'm doing just fine, but thanks for the concern. For once, just fuck off.
