Youngist Indiegogo Update: We’ve Raised 82% of Our Goal, 10 Days to Raise the Last $2,099!

Friends,

We’re in the home stretch. It’s been a thrilling (read: nerve-racking) past two weeks here at Youngist. We’ve already managed to raise over 82% of our Indiegogo campaign’s $12,000 fundraising goal!

That $9,901 alone could put us a long way towards building the full website we so-need to effectively showcase and amplify the untold stories and independent news and analysis of Millennials worldwide. 

Here’s the thing: unless we reach our full $12,000 goal by July 11, we won’t receive even a penny of that $9,901. So, we need to raise $2,099 more in the next 10 days.

But fear not! That’s just $197/day. And, If you can spare the next 2 minutes to help out, I’m confident we can hit that goal. Hell, maybe even exceed it. 

If you dig the work we’ve been doing, I hope you’ll take a couple minutes to help make certain this campaign is a success!

Cheers,

Alex Stevens, {Young}ist Engagement Editor

Text 26 May 3 notes Potentially Looking for Housing - Vegans Please Read!

theveganabolitionist:

Hey everyone. I might be moving again soon. It’s complicated, and we’ll see. But I’d like to scout some potential options.

A bit about me. I’m twenty-two years old. I’m a no-compromise vegan. I love eating raw when I have the money. I have one dog (who does bark when someone comes to the door, but loves EVERYONE) and five cats (three of whom are kittens and litter-mates). I don’t party, though I will occasionally drink or smoke (the latter in my car only, if my roommates prefer). I’m not about having ragers in the house, and don’t really even like crowds.

I do have Bipolar disorder, which means on some days, I’m really down, and I do keep to myself a bit when that happens. It’s not personal, but I do need someone who understands this and understands that I won’t always be happy-go-lucky. It’s been my experience that this is hard for some people to deal with, so I’m putting it up front.

I’d like roommates I could be friends with, preferably vegan. Must be open-minded and not racists, homophobes, or general assholes.

I’m also flat broke right now, because I’ve been in Canada and haven’t had a job yet. So if there was a place with an opening for a friendly, loving vegan and some animals that would give you cuddles, I could pay rent back as soon as I get a job. I understand if that doesn’t work, though; I could also stay with friends for a bit until I make enough money, in which case, I’d be looking for a place in a month or two.

But yeah. I’m open to moving just about anywhere, really. It’s a time in my life when I can travel, so I’m open to loads of options (as long as they’re in the U.S.). If you have a space and think we might like each other, let me know. If you don’t, please reblog for me! Thanks!

Text 25 Nov 11 notes A series of Short Poems pt. 2

I’m working on a new submission for an on-campus publication, but decided to look through some more old stuff first. I decided I’d post some more short little poems I have from high school. No titles, I suck at those.

you may laugh, you may flirt
you may spin in your skirt
but I’m smarter than you though I’m lazy

I have will, you have might
in an all out fight
I would crush you, are you crazy

are you crazy
I would crush you
if you make me

________________________________________

I feel like crying because you care
I feel like shouting because you stay
I feel like leaving because you won’t

Forgive me, for I have sinned
Learn to take me as I am
wait for me as I leave

_______________________________________

Flowers, like the sunrise in the meadow.
Sun, quickly fading away.
Everyone, silently inhaling the atmosphere.
Trying to hold on. 

_______________________________________

"It’s all right" she said, she said
but he read her hesitance
still he plunged ahead, ahead, ahead
and she closed her eyes.

don’t say sorry now
when you didn’t mean it then
just stay, stick around
and be my perfect man,
my charming perfect man

_______________________________________

there is nothing like a dream
unpolluted and still clean
free from the burden of reality

white and fulfilled
it holds everyone thrilled
as it shines through the darkest of ills

it is black waves
against tan sand
with the illusion of blue between
and the bright bright white 
which makes everything complete

That last one is my favorite, for reasons too bizarre to explain. 

Text 28 Oct 6 notes Wrote these last night for a student project on campus

Love Letter to the word Boi
Hello Boy, or should I say boi,
the i meaning you and representing you to me
because I’m in Pennsylvania and you’re in Belize
but we can communicate with ease
with the word
boi.
You speak the word with confidence
though it sounds strange to my unaccustomed ears
because that’s Kriol boi.
You know, Kriol,
Belizean Creole, English infused,
mixing with the Mestizo immigrant Spanish to make the sentence:
Tu sabes, boi, soy hardcore on the shores of Belize.
You own the word, you love the word,
and smile when I say it, like a Gringa.
No, not Boya,
it’s Boyi,
boi.
Your lips curl up into a smile
as mine stretch out to make the sound,
practicing to say the word you own,
the word you love.
The word that loves you,
and hugs you,
and tells you that you are not a Hispanic,
you are not a seasonal immigrant,
you are not a 2nd generation anything.
You are not just those things, you are all those things,
because you are a Belizean.
In private, in my room that night
my lips curl around the word,
practicing, mimicking the way our fingers curl around each other’s
to prove to ourselves that the only thing we need
to keep connected
is the

Dear Friend From Back Home,
it  was nice talking to you again last night,
at three a.m. as we tend to do,
because that’s the only time
we have time
anymore
for our long discussions,
which always seem to circle back to one thing:
faith.
For three years now we’ve been discussing our faith,
explaining it to each other,
but in reality we’re only figuring it out as we speak.
It only makes sense when we share it,
share the feeling, share the faith.
We’ve transitioned together,
from devout, to questioning,
to criticizing,
to deist.
From indifferent, to questioning,
to criticizing,
to agnostic.
I won’t say which is which,
sometimes I think we don’t even know.
We get lost in the minute distinctions between body and soul,
and spirit.
We get lost in our spirits.
But that’s okay because our spirits get lost in us,
as we focus on the must-dos
and the bodily don’ts
mechanically performing and boring the body
and numbing the soul,
our spirits get lost in us.
But at three a.m.
we get lost in our spirits.
