    i looooved loved columbia. i can never say enough good things about it. is it hard to get into? no, not at all (which was p key to me bc i barely graduated high school) 

    to whoever said they can’t be taken seriously professionally, lol. my best friend colleen who is now chance the rappers manager got a job straight out of graduation @ universal music group in LA. my friend kelyn (also 2 months after graduating and ironically colleen’s roommate) became head buyer @ forever 21 and assistant to the owner + president. one of my best friends lynsey is a year younger than me so still has a yr to go and has already interned at NBC + CBS as she wants to go into broadcast journalism. i was offered two jobs before i graduated from connects i made through either teachers or contacts i made @ events i was working for school. those are just my close close friends. these examples are not to brag but i hear this shit about columbia so much and it just isn’t true.

    no one is going to go online and make a good review of the college. like people go on college review boards to complain. 

    i used to run tours/work open house all the time and the number one thing i would stress is that this is not a school you can just go to, go to class and then sit in your dorm. you need to get involved, you need to be about your own hustle and be focused and determined. you will waste your money if you just go to class. all of our professors are still working in their fields, which is a HUGE asset because 1) all of the media/arts industries are constantly changing, so our course work is relevant and up to date and 2) they can connect you big time w internships w/e.

    it rly isn’t for everyone. we’re in the middle of a big city. if you want the state school party in dorms lay on quad experience, you will hate it. that’s why a lot of ppl transfer after freshman year. it’s a college for people who know what they want and will do anything to get it done. you can’t come to columbia “undecided” our classes aren’t more than 30 people. anyone i know who worked their ass off, got involved, and took advantage of all the opportunities that come out of it (i got to go to sxsw for free completley for the past 3 yrs of my life??) loved the hell out of it and is in a good if not great place post graduation. 

    THANK YOU YES

    ^^^^^ This.

Close-Ups on Detail of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

Okay, the heels are weird.

But I am pretty encouraged. This looks like a Wonder Woman who kicks ass.

It is SO important to SO many people that they get this right. I hope they understand the responsibility they have to people, not just women, all over the world.

So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.

HOLY MOLY.


i had to read this book in uni for my first year Canadian literature class. When we first heard of it we were like, “Oh the Bear’s a metaphor or some shit.” but then one kid read ahead, and was like, “Guys, no, she literally fucks the bear. She fucked a bear.” 

someone buy me this

Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level. 

This is basic economic fact.

A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity. 

And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…

And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.

Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs). 

But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.

We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

#poverty #classism

  • The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
  • The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
  • The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
  • The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
  • The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
  • The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
  • The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
  • The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
