I actually work really hard in school and at my job but I title all my papers with joke titles and spend a lot of time dicking around and making bad jokes at work because I just cant take anything seriously
Dressing up is like masturbation, I do it for myself and if it turns you on, that’s fine, but this is for me and you’re not invited.
i need a new bra, looks like it’s time to take out a fucking loan
Lane Bryant’s semi annual sale (buy 2 get 2) starts dec 26th! :)
finals week combines being that like drunken pass out tiredness feeling with remembering one sentence word-for-word said three months ago while you were sexting a hottie and your ability to remember that can cost you thousands of dollars.
The posts that pop up during finals week are the best kinds of posts
no but literally me
just kidding I’m not wrapping presents, I’m so tired I’m probably just going to get into bed and pass the fuck out.
spend at least 6 hours a day at school, sometimes up to 10. working 30 hours a week. ha.
At $10 an hour you’d have to work 1,250 hours to cover the UW’s $12,500 tuition (more, once you take out taxes). In a 12-week summer, that’s more than 100 hours a week.
What really made me feel ancient is that the 1981 UW student guide shows the Med school charged only $1,029 a year back then. Today: $28,040!
Now, I didn’t go to the UW. But I’m going down Husky memory lane because last week The Seattle Times featured a crop of harried UW students looking rueful and broke. The story said skeptical state legislators often say how “they worked their way through college. And then they ask: Why don’t students do that today?”
Of all our delusions, we old farts cling to this bootstrap one the most. We worked our way up on sweat and chicken grease, we say. Can’t this generation? What’s wrong with them?
What’s wrong is that after we got ours, we cut it off for them.
The reason a summer at KFC could pay for a year of UW med school in 1981 isn’t that we were so hardworking and industrious. It’s that taxpayers back then picked up 90 percent of the tab. We weren’t Horatio Algers. We were socialists.
Today, the public picks up only 30 percent of UW tuition, and dropping.
Anonymous asked: What college do you go to? And do you like it? I'm looking into colleges right now and wanted your perspective!
well I started going for Mortuary Science when i started, but I somehow decided to become an english writing major instead. So dont get concerned if you change your mind. I was also about to start a second degree in film studies but then I decided it wasnt a good time for me to do that.
I go to Minnesota State University of Moorhead. which I transferred to from Southwest Minnesota State so I could get a film degree, but I should have stayed at SMSU because they have the best writing program ever.
roommates will suck no matter what. make sure you get one that has a schedule that will vibe well with yours.
if you plan to go home or feel the need to go home frequently, stay close to home. I know people that drive or their families drive to pick them up 2-5 hours one way EVERY WEEK or every other week. and thats just dumb.
dont feel bad if it takes you longer. I literally failed my first semester. I’ll be in college for 4.5 years by the time I’m done.
take classes in things that interest you, not just your major.
make sure you find good friends, because even if there is a lot to do in the town, you’ll still be miserable alone.
