“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”
People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in the country, went to all the best school and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life?
^ My parents were college-educated teachers in their home country and came to the U.S. with nothing but empty pockets, a dash of hope, and a belief in God. They also scrubbed toilets in people’s homes to make enough to provide for their children, and that’s probably not something a lot of educated professionals would be able to do. I know I wouldn’t be able to do it. Pride would get in the way.
THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT.
Shoutout to my parents
and you know, shout out to our im/migrant parents who were not college educated before they came to the U.S and don’t share a narrative of going from “riches to rags.” shout out to my im/migrant parents who were laborers at home and are still laborers here.
i think it’s important to honor the complexities of our parents histories and uplift their triumphs but let’s remember to do so in a way that honors all of the ways im/migrants exist and all of the places we and our parents come from. we don’t have to prove that capitalism, white supremacy, classism, etc is awful because our parents were once revered college professors or doctors. we don’t have to believe in that assimilation.
i’m going to my parents for the weekend

Finding someone worth waking up to is better than finding someone to sleep with.

Name: Kaique. You can call me Kai or whatever tickles your fancy.
Age/Birthday: Nineteen, 21th of June.
Sexuality: Allegedly gay.
Gender: Somewhere between male and cookie.
This blog follows the adventures of it's inconspicuous author: Kaique, the lame. Also known as the most uninteresting person in the History of Ever.
Kaique is a moody asshole who's stumbling through life and adulthood not being really sure of what he's doing - he wastes far too much time of his life watching TV and movies, reading books and dumb articles on the internet, playing video games and generally being a nerd doing stuff to forget and avoid working on that as he dwells into an endless pit of procrastination.
He loves Sherlock Holmes in all shapes and forms, cusses a lot, insists on wearing sweatpants and socks at all times, has a phobia of cockroaches and needles, could probably stop drinking water to drink coffee instead, is almost exclusively a teleiophile and smokes at times but does not drink if he can avoid it.
Loves Europe so much he would like to get on a plane and just travel everywhere, but have a castle in Scotland as a respawn point. Although he would also like to never leave his room and just sleep forever. It's complicated.
Music is an inherent part of him and he plays a microscopically minuscule amount of guitar (Tony, the guitar, sends his regards). He could listen to Metallica forever.
His respect and admiration for Robert Downey and Craig Ferguson knows no bounds. He could watch and talk about them forever.
i have a younger sister and an older sister (yeah, I'm the middle brother)
i have two dogs they're my babies and i love them
