On a scale of 1 to poor we’re poor. Ramen is not only a staple in our diet it’s a necessity. We have to save up to buy household items such as a vacuum cleaner, microwave, and used couches. We have little more than a roof over our heads, our car(that we can hardly afford), and our wardrobe comprised of Plato’s Closet, Goodwill, and Rumors Boutique clothing. We’re not complaining, hell, we actually love our life. We’re small business owners in Richmond which is something to be proud of. It’s not that we’re bad at what we do…we’re definitely some of the most ambitious and passionate about our cause…so why are we doomed for nothing more than retiring at poverty level?

You Beto Work 2: A Bumble Love Letter to Beto O’Rourke

Fall calls for late nights and warm blankets, lost in the small glare of the light from my phone. Tired of endlessly swiping right on the same balding white guy named Jeff holding a spotted bass he is entirely too proud of. Tinder? Never. I’m far higher brow than...
