some people say there’s a red string that connects fated lovers
psa don’t look at the notes bc there are so many people completely missing the point that these are non-romantic strings of fate and making dumb jokes about where the red string “must be” and it’s making me really angry bc we can’t even have a good artistic representation of aromanticism without people desperately grasping for a romantic interpretation somehow
This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!
SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.
THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.
"I think it is obscene for the government to make profit off of these kids"
I’m gonna go ahead and be a shithead here and say, isn’t that taxation? What’s the difference between this and the tax they shave off of your paycheques, the sales tax they shave off of every single purchase you make, the tax you file at the end of the year and so on. Not saying it’s bad or good or this or that, but u kno
'shink about it…
Additionally, college wouldn’t be so fucking expensive if it didnt become the new 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th grade. Not everyone needs to goto college, but the millennial generation have all been corralled into post-secondary education because of the aspirations of the baby boomers to see their children off to a higher standard of learning and education. That’s not a bad thing, but the result of which has made the demand for a slot in select universities/colleges to skyrocket and along with it, the price for the PRIVILEGE to attend certain institutions. Massive student debt goes along with other millenial generation debt bubbles where people spend for things beyond their means like as it were for housing/loans almost a decade ago.
The effect for this in the workforce has been the dilution of the worth of a college degree and the appearance of the “at least 3-4 years of experience.” College education is so common now a days that it has rendered it’s worth to another otherwise useless addition to your resume. It no longer is the guarantee of employment as it were for previous generations. That’s what’s “fundamentally changed.”
Kids should go into trades. Or an affordable community college.
Universities have literally turned into a near useless money sink. Unless your working towards a degree that’s engineering related, there’s almost no point to going imo. There’s now a 20% post college employment rate for universities versus the the 75% for post trade school/community college. People constantly knock on CCs, but with the economy and educational system being in the state that it’s in right now, it’s probably the best and safest option out there if your looking to have a livable wage after graduating.
