Mariah Brown: The Only Planet I'm Applying to is Westminster College

Special Snowflake needs to read this.  She might need to think twice about blocking people who don't agree with her.

I thought of her when I read this article too.

I read an article today about some woke influencer kid, living in the UK, who thinks schools should stop teaching and talking about the number of souls that gave their lives for his freedom in WWII.  It's too scary and too negative in his opinion.  He also thinks schools should teach people about mortgages instead of history.  

I know I'm a COL to the max, but SM has created too many spoiled brats.  Or maybe there was always too many spoiled brats, but now SM has given them a way to advertise it.  Could be a chicken/egg thing for me.

I was trying to help an older friend negotiate the steps, and I was the one who fell.   I  tried to help her another time, and I managed to fall again, but luckily I didn't break anything;   I no longer offer anyone aid except Mr. Twopper.   I can usually handle uneven ground unless it is raining or dark.  We have a hiking stick that is helpful.

I've never been a klutz but 3 years ago I fell two feet from my car going downhill in the parking lot at my old job.  They had just done construction and there were a lot of cracks, gullies, dust and gravel all over.  My foot got stuck in a crack and I lost balance trying to get it free.  When you're going downhill at that kind of angle it's easy to lose momentum and balance.  I fell face forward, full force on my right forearm, breaking both bones about mid-point.  Bone was sticking through and my arm was hanging.  The pain was unbelievable.  I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.  That was the last day I ever worked at that job (or any).  It took me months to recuperate and regain the full use of my arm.  4 months later, when my Dr. was considering allowing me to go back to work part time, I was terminated with no reason given on the last day of my FMLA AND while on Workers' Comp.  I had worked in that job for 5 years and had nothing but excellent reviews from my bosses.  This decision had come from HR, not my supervisor.  Yes, there was a lawsuit and I won, but despite having a stellar resume, no one would hire this "ancient" late 50s (at the time) COL. 

Yes, age discrimination is very real.  I never felt more like a targeted COL than the year and a half I looked for a job.  I would often get interviews, even called back for a second one, but somehow would never get hired.  I even wondered if I was being blackballed by my old job.  I just think that in my profession (executive admin.) in the corporate world today, a lot of emphasis is being placed on hiring for "diversity" (which sadly doesn't include being older) and despite what younger people think, they are much preferred overall especially because they can can be paid less.  But the quality of their work stinks because they're too busy being into themselves like Mariah to have any real work ethic, plus their education was generally inferior to people in my age bracket.  Not to mention how they lack the critical thinking skills and maturity level to make the kinds of decisions that executives need them to make.  But companies don't care about that anymore. 

I could cry thinking about all the older women I've known or heard about that lost their jobs for bogus reasons that did not seek legal action because it's so hard to prove age discrimination.  I just heard about a woman working for a huge Fortune 100 company that was suddenly told she didn't have the experience dealing with boards of directors that her job required so she was being let go.  Meanwhile she was in the same position for several years and the job duties had not changed.  They hired a younger woman with a law degree (overqualified) to replace her.  Meanwhile the older woman (waving her resume at them) reminded them that she had extensive experience working with BODs in her long career, having worked for heads of divisions.  They acted sheepish about this and decided to keep her but demote her.  She is considering legal action.

So while the Mariahs of the world make it all about them in the name of so-called "social justice", there are real social justice issues that they don't care about whatsoever.  Nobody cares about older people, especially older women, ESPECIALLY Mariah and her faux woke crowd.  It's all about them and their "pet" issues.  Sorry, for the rant but this is yet another reason I detest her.

Hey Yeah No, I would like you to know that I gave your post a Like but I wanted equally to give it a Useful, a Sad, and a Surprise.

You withstood a trauma that would fell a speshul snowflake and you're still standing, and you're here to tell your tale.

You succinctly stated some sad, ironic, inexcusable and significant truths.

Bless your heart, with the most honest and sincere meaning behind that term.

Older/mature women hold up their portion of the sky with grace and wisdom and are too rarely appreciated for doing so.

COLs - ooh rah!

A thousand likes to this and to Yeah No as well.

In many cultures, the wisdom and wit of the elders is appreciated and sought out, especially words of the women.  Today in the US (I cannot speak for other countries) we are treated like doddering oldsters incapable of tying our own shoes.  There are too many days I am hard pressed not to smack some mouthy, smirking young person.  Or roll my eyes so far back I can see my rear end at some of their vapid comments.  Mariah is the poster child for being a supercilious ass.

Oh, well, the mantra of we, the COLs of the world, is to soldier on.  And thus we do.

@Yeah No, I'm so sorry you had that experience. 

I have to say in defense of the "kids" I know personally IRL (where it really matters) that they aren't all like Mariah.  actually I don't know ANY who are like her. Many are hard working, respectful to their elders, and truly intelligent. 

Why does Mariah do what she does? Well, she's Meri's daughter. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. 

She's an outlier and that's what makes her so annoying to me.

She's probably resting up on Sunday so she can take off another "cute little uterus" day on her most booked up day of the work week.

Plus there's knowing that one day perhaps in the distant future Mariah herself might understand what it's like to feel like a COL. 

Sadly, I think she'll switch from being an all-knowing sage to being a victim when she reaches the age of true enlightenment e.g. the real world and loses her cadre of SM sychophants.  I mean how many COL's post endless pictures and words of wisdom that garner gushing compliments?  She'll be lamenting her Nobody Loves Me status to. well, nobody.

And we'll still have each other!

Actually, that's a beautiful little passage by Donna Farhi, probably from one of her books on Yoga.  I found it online here. I think a few people I know could benefit from this.  Too bad Mariah is using it as justification for being lazy and self absorbed.  She has no idea what it's like to live in the real world and be overburdened with work in the first place to need to slow down from anything.  😕

Quote

Slowing down is the precursor to yoga practice because this simple act allows us to consider our thoughts, feelings, and actions more carefully in the light of our desire to live peacefully. When we overwork, when we try to fit too many things into an already congested schedule, when we rush from place to place, we lose track of what is important, and in doing so we almost always fail to serve those values that support our relationships and our heartfelt aspirations. A certain harshness can creep into our interactions with others, and this is the same harshness we ourselves find so distressing and so undermining of our sense of connectedness. We can become curt with our friends, family, and coworkers in a way that belies their importance to us. Maybe we become so exhausted by all our busyness that we’re irritable when we wish to be kind, thoughtless when we want our actions to be considerate. So before we sink our teeth into the foundations of yoga practice, consider this one possibility: that you have all the time you need. When you find yourself rushing, you can catch yourself and breathe out fully, affirming that you do indeed have all the time you need. You can ask yourself if the sky will fall down, if someone will die, or if the world will stop spinning if you sit down for ten minutes and breathe the air.

Screenshot from a video. She starts out saying  she’s headed to bed “pretty quick”, and states she has an early morning. So, she’s going to make her breakfast. I thought it was going to be an overnight oatmeal recipe. Nope, she got this in the mail , the packet gets emptied into a container, (provided) she added almond milk,  shook it up , and then it will go in the refrigerator until morning. When she shook the container I was hoping she didn’t have the lid on correctly. Bummer, she did.

What a rip-off! There are literally hundreds of overnight oats recipes out there. They are so flippin' easy and cheap to make from scratch.

Oh and that's spelled convenience, Ms College Grad.

When we first started seeing this company in our insta feed I think earlier this year, I showed it to my coach and he cracked up that anyone would pay that much for something so easy and cheap to make at home.  I don't make them often because I like to have something more substantial for breakfast. Not a big fan of slurping down a meal, I like solid food!

$15 for 3 packs and the “overnight blender bottle”. The company is “working on” fully recyclable packaging.

So $5 a meal for something you can make for virtually pennies.  With packaging that can't be recycled.  Very socially conscious of you Pudge.

It blows my mind at how many of the Browns are shilling this crap for a little affiliate kickback (they only get renumeration if someone uses their promo code when ordering).

Don't forget Robert "Garrison".  

I have a friend who sells stuff, but it's one of those parties you show up at and order if you want to.  She said after about a year of parties, she has regular customers who buy items for themselves or as gifts.  Customers are required to pay upfront.  So if the customer doesn't respond when the items come in, she holds them for 90 days and can sell them to another person if they want it.  She is never stuck with items to sell.

Agree.  Walmart has their brand of oats for $2.67 for 30 servings.  So for one month 8 cents is what I would spend for my breakfast.  Any add ins would be extra.  But still cheaper than what she is buying/selling.

I can't fault Garrison for his Hawaiian shirt thing.  He seems to genuinely enjoy wearing them and he's not all in your face about it.  Plus, he looks good in them.  To me it seems like he's just doing it for a little extra money and not taking it uber seriously. 
He probably doesn't carry inventory - it's all drop shipped from the same places the folks on Amazon get theirs.

Mariah should consult with the family Health Guru.  Janelle would no doubt advise that the oatmeal would do it's job of getting to those cells expediently if warmed up before consuming.

Especially if she doesn’t need them to be gluten free. I suppose I should be grateful to the hipster movement in this regard (I cannot eat gluten and thanks to them I can find stuff more easily), but she’s such a poser everything she does annoys me.

You can almost (almost) feel a twinge of compassion for people who are this hung up on conspicuous consumption, because it telegraphs their insecurity.

Then logic returns and you remember that you're looking at white trash with money who never ever ever post anything about doing good works or charitable deeds. You know, religious stuff.

My husband makes himself oatmeal overnight all the time.  It involves oatmeal and water so I'm guessing it takes approximately the same amount of time to prepare.  He lets it sit overnight and in the morning turns on the burner for a certain amount of time.  Voila, hot oatmeal for a fraction of the cost of this stuff with apparently no more effort that this.  I couldn't bring myself to watch a video on oatmeal but she HAS to be getting some sort of kickback right?  NO ONE displays this level of excitement over oatmeal.

Even before the program started the Browns were all involved in the MLM, Liv Water and Janelle was selling some kind of food storage containers, I don't think it was Tupperware, some other kind of plastic bins and bottles.  This was when Janelle was still working as a government employee as well as juggling the family finances.  She must have thought it would win her points in Kody's favor to become the Worker Bee.

You can even cheat and buy premixed "pumpkin pie spices" in the baking section of any grocery store if you are too lazy to shake spices out of more than one container, add cheap oatmeal, milk or water of your choice and throw them in a mason jar in the fridge overnight.  We know Mariah has mason jars because she has shown us pics of her woke green juice in them before.  The beauty of mason jars is you can nuke them and have hot oatmeal with no leached plastics.

Personally I prefer a protein based breakfast to keep me going, not a high-carb fat-storing sloth-inducing breakfast.

I like oatmeal and I know it's considered good for keeping cholesterol in check (if not eaten with a lot of extras) but I am always starving midway through the morning. I need protein as well - an egg will keep me hunger-free until lunch time.
