I’m 22. I have a full-time job with enough of a salary to afford rent. It takes 2 hours for me to get to work from home, meaning I spend 4 hours in various forms of transit, which results in 12 hours a day I’m either at work or coming to/from there.

Oh my God my mom is watching some talk show and they’re having some guys from Thunder From Down Under (sort of like Australian Chippendales) or whatever on it and they’re dancing to Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy and she hasn’t turned it off yet and I am dying from the proxy awkward
The best thing about my internship is that I’m not really allowed to talk about it, but it’s not related to national security or anything it’s all about low to mid-level aspiring politicians in the Midwest
