I wish I at least had a job. But I don’t. I need to help my mom out, my mom’s not working now and we need to help my dad. He’s been in the hospital for a month exactly today. It’s fucking unbelievable how the first thing they ask you is if you have insurance….

Thank you to those of you that reblogged my post!

I wish I at least had a job. But I don’t. I need to help my mom out, my mom’s not working now and we need to help my dad. He’s been in the hospital for a month exactly today. It’s fucking unbelievable how the first thing they ask you is if you have insurance. Basically if you don’t have money, they’re not going to give you the help you actually need. The social worker told us that he basically would have to go home because an inpatient facility is hundreds and hundreds of dollars a day and that we wouldn’t be able to afford it. Even the skilled nursing facility wasn’t going to be an option because it’s also a shitload of money. Like are you kidding me? My dad needs to be in an inpatient rehab facility, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. He needs therapy, speech therapy, etc. for a couple hours during the morning and during the afternoon EVERYDAY. He had mini strokes and a MASSIVE stroke. He couldn’t swallow. They were feeding him through his nose. Then they put the peg tube in and they’re feeding him that way now. I’m so so so happy he’s finally starting to swallow a tiny bit but it’s hard, my dad can’t move all of his left side. I don’t want to say he’s paralyzed because it sounds so permanent…and I hope he’ll be able to walk again one day. I’m super hopeful that he’s going to recover immensely. Some days, it’s just really hard to be optimistic. Some days I wish I had mad money and wouldn’t have to worry about this. I wish I could just pay for everything and get him the treatment he deserves. I’m scared terrified that he’s not going to be the same after this. There’s so much more I want to type but I don’t want to make this post super long. My family is going through a really, really tough time and we need help. If I wasn’t desperate I wouldn’t ask, I never really get personal on here but I really need help. I have a donation button already on my blog but no one has ever donated before and I know it says it’s there because I want to buy a new camera but scratch that. It’s going to be there for my dad. Really, if you can, anything at all would be really appreciated. It doesn’t matter if it’s only a dollar, but it’s something and anything will help. You can reblog this post if you’d like.

If you read all of this, thank you for taking the time.

Musica Tropical:

Xuc [lots of groups but i’ll give u the most famous one: 

Chanchona [music from Eastern El Salvador and you’ll notice two types. The original which only uses acoustic instruments n then the other style with accordion and keyboards ] :

Buenas Epocas [Early Rock bands in El Salvador]:

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!
