 “Student loans are destroying the imagination of youth. If there’s a way of a society committing mass suicide, what better way than to take all the youngest, most energetic, creative, joyous people in your society and saddle them with, like $50,000 of debt so they have to be slaves? There goes your music. There goes your culture. There goes everything new that would pop out. And in a way, this is what’s happened to our society. We’re a society that has lost any ability to incorporate the interesting, creative and eccentric people.” ~David Graeber

i live in a college town. and at the restaurant i serve in i’ve seen countless students graduate, quit their waiting job here, move back home, get another waiting job, and start paying off their student loans. ya know, i feel some judgement when i tell people that i’m not in school right now, but i’ll take that any day over the hopeless prison the american education system has become. 
John D. Rockefeller said it from the get go when he founded the board of education. “I do not want a nation of thinkers; I want a nation of workers.” and lo and behold.

I need a lot of attention but I also need everyone to get the fuck away from me.

Warning: if you don’t care stop reading. If you know me at all you probably know that one of my life long obsessions is the Titanic. I first heard the story when I was 3 and ever since have been fascinated by this tragic story of hubris. Tonight, April 14th 2014 is the 102nd anniversary of the night Titanic slipped under the waves forever. The reason I’m posting this at 11:42 is that this is exactly when she struck the ice berg that sealed her fate. I’ve compiled these pictures to show you her journey. From her launch into the Harland and Wolff harbor in Belfast Ireland, to her departure from Southampton England, to her final resting place at the bottom of the Atlantic. If you have read this far, I only ask that you take a minute of silence for the lives lost that night. And for the loss of a such a majestic and beautiful ship.

Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be. — Eric Thomas  (via thatkindofwoman)
