Hey man, why so inactive? SC's got things goin' on! Keep at it, we miss FYSC!
I got a new job at which I actually have to work and can’t be on tumblr all day. Also, I deliberately haven’t gotten internet at my new place to be more productive. I’ll break down eventually. Thanks for your continued interest and always feel free to submit stuff!
If you’re so concerned about other people’s food habits to the point that you’d exclude their candidacy simply because they’re not vegan, you need to realize you’re automatically disqualifying the vast majority of people.

My go-to questionnaire when interviewing new renters included such gems as “Do you do meth or heroin?” and “Are you an insufferable piece of shit?”
If The Ad Capitalizes The First Letter Of Every Word OR IS IN ALL CAPS “HEY CHECK THIS PEACEFUL ROOM” don’t bother, no matter how appealing.
Also, note this one: “Fair housing laws state that it is unlawful to “…make, print, publish, or cause to be made, printed, or published any notice, statement or advertisement, with respect to the sale or rental of a dwelling that indicates any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on one of the protected classes.” Ads that say “no children,” “adults only,” “male preferred or female preferred” are examples of illegal ads. “
