That is for ONE COURSE at the graduate level.

ONE

COURSE

And people wonder why poor kids don’t usually go to college and ESPECIALLY don’t go to grad school.

Well

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ there’s why

Not to derail but I like accuracy. I dot know what school this is but at your average public state school a grad class is $600 , meaning you should be takin 10-12 credits meaning you’re paying $1800 for classes alone . Hence these schools are out of range for poor students

This IS an average public state school in the US. That $600 isn’t for one CLASS, it’s for one CREDIT. And classes are average around 3 credits per class.

And the best part is that even if we DON’T drop out (which is however many thousands down the drain), it’s still a toss up if we get a job after we graduate, so it’s STILL many thousands down the drain.

I think the person above was mixing up Grad students with Undergrad in public schools (the ones who said it’s aver 600 for one class) or maybe they were mixing up COMMUNITY COLLEGE which is different and doesn’t nearly give you enough degree choices, let alone a degree at all in some cases. Undergrad price ranges (while rediculous anyway) are definitely far less than Grad students. I’m paying almost 6,000 this SEMESTER for 3 classes which equate to 11 credits. Also remember that schools “projected tuition” is base tuition. Anything above that (roughly 12 credits, so if you take less you are PAYING MORE) also costs more. I don’t know how Grad school works I haven’t gotten to that point yet (but I’ve heard horror stories from my law school graduate friend)

Then there is Out-Of-State tuition (which is a bitch to get out of paying let me tell you…even when you’ve met IN STATE REQUIREMENTS) which is THREE TO FOUR TIMES time amount of in State. I was told I’d be expected to pay 46,000 for a YEAR. Granted these numbers are grossly misrepresented at any rate.

All of that is for UNDERGRADUATE CLASSES.

Thankfully I have “Residency” for Tuition, IDFK what the school did but I’m not paying the “Out Of State” amount even though they claim I am “Out of State”. But my BASE tuition is 6,000. If I get more than 3 classes you can bet that number will rise by roughly 1,500 a class.

What they tell you is that Student Loans/Grants/Scholarships are meant to help pay for cost of living too, alongside tuition and supplies FOR FULL TIME STUDENTS. They do not give NEARLY enough to cover all the aforementioned items. I’m getting enough to BARELY afford books and tuition this Semester, and the same will be for next Semester. Meanwhile the school has listed that they roughly estimate I would pay about 5,000 in bills and rent (I live off campus which is BETTER because you are not being charged an arm and a leg just to room in a small, shitty, barely-fits-you room—it is CHEAPER to live off campus in most areas) which puts me at 11,000 without processing supplies and books. Supplies and books is another 1,000 depending on your classes ALONE and could go up to 2,000 if you aren’t careful and can’t find the cheapest option. That’s 13,000 a Semester. Meanwhile Loans/Grants cover about 8,000 a Semester and Scholarships, from what I’ve seen, aren’t much better when you aren’t in a SPECIFIC career track. Further! That is both a loan and a grant together, the 8,000, and this is the FIRST TIME I haven’t had to have parental help in paying for tuition. Before this my loans/grants covered roughly HALF of base tuition. HALF OF 6,000 DOLLARS.

The American Public College system is a trash heap of how much can we screw out of these children’s lives. My dad was getting graduate school at my age for LESS than an Undergrad pays today. Welcome to the world. That IS public school.

I showed this post to my boyfriend and he tried to take his shirt off like a girl and 

uh

yeah

Out of the 82k notes my post got this is by far the best comment holy shit thank u for being u

So i tried it both ways and uh

i mean how do you do the first one without pulling out all your hair?

this made me laugh really hard….

and it made me realize that girls and boys pull their shirt off differently. /amazed

but seriously I think girls just do the cross arm thing because of HAIR like demonstrated 

So one year, one URL change, and a hair cut later, I decide to try again… FOR SCIENCE! 

Its not science unless you write it down so 

First method:

image
Well done, i guess…

Second:

image
I fucked up

Girls… how?

I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE CAN HAVE SUCH DIFFERENT WAYS OF TAKING OFF SHIRTS AND SO MUCH DIFFICULTY DOING IT THE OTHER WAY

I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!

It’s all in the way that girl/boys shirts are made.

Girls shirts have less armpit room then boy’s do and are generally shorter so pulling it off over your head is more practical because by lifting your arms all the way up you make enough room for the sleeves to just slip off.

Boys shirts have more room and are generally longer so it is easy to slip them off over your head.

but if you take a girls shirt off like a boys shirt you will get your arms caught because there isn’t much armpit space.

and if you take a boys shirt off like a girls shit you will still have your head in it when you’ve lifted your arms all the way up because of the shirt’s length.

It has nothing to do with us. It is entirely to do with how our shirts are made. I figured it out for you. YOU’RE WELCOME!

bless you

  2. most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person 
  3. im not a pissbaby

my white friends that have reblogged this give me life

4. Sometimes I am a shitty white person and the jokes remind me to FUCKIN STOP

oh my god, that was really violent

     (via starksexual)

BUT NO SERIOUSLY CAN WE TALK FOREVER ABOUT HOW SHE STOLE THE ENDING. Because as soon as you get the idea that she’s alive, you think “oh, she’s going to come in at the last second and land a few punches and give Tony - the hero - enough time to get back on his feet and finish the battle, while she cheers from the side lines.” Just. Like. Every. Other. Movie. And then she FINISHES THE BATTLE. SHE KILLS HIM. 

#also can we talk about how one man in that movie treated Pepper as an Object#as a prize to be won#as a lure for Tony Stark#what happened to that man I wonder?#PEPPER POTTS FUCKING KILLED HIM#PEPPER POTTS IS A GODDESS

Now can we talk about how in the first movie pepper also defeats the final baddie? And how in the second movie she has arrested the one bad guy who didn’t kill himself? Can we talk about how Tony has never actually killed or captured the main bad guy in his own movies?

The closest he gets is Avengers. Because he kills a bunch of Chitauri with a missile. And then the Avengers all get together and capture Loki. You know why? Because Pepper was on a plane somewhere far away. Otherwise she would have done it. I swear.

And at the beginning of Avengers, Tony was all wanting her to stay the night. And she’s just like: Dude, you gotta handle this for a change. I’ll hold your flower.

Could we also talk about how not only unsurprised, unphased, and un-emasculated by this Tony is, but also how he probably gets a metaphorical boner for her when she does it?

Hetty is BAMF.

anyone know anything about registry for emotional support animals?

hi everyone! if you’ve known me for any amount of time you know my cat, Stormageddon.

image

This is us.

On ordinary days, she’s my bff and we watch stuff together and play and nap.

image

Or nap on what I’m knitting.

If you’ve known me for any amount of time, you also know that I’m moving to Hawaii.

Which is very far away and I have extreme travel and flight anxiety ANYWAY, on top of this “going away forever to a place I know nobody” thing

And basically they want to take her away for four months for “quarantine.”

image

lookit that face.

Anyway, I can understand all that to a degree, but if she’s up to date on all her shots, and keeps me grounded on bad days, and is often why I remember to take my meds…

TL;DR: I need to figure out how to register my kitty as an Emotional Support Animal, so I can take her with me and KEEP her with me.

Anyone?

I hate to say this, but places that register your pet as “emotional support” or “therapy” are almost universally scams. An animal has to be trained to do a thing for it to count as a service, and just being a calming presence doesn’t cut it. You might have to wait out the four months anyway, I’m so sorry.

Actually bemusedlybesptacled you are wrong. Dear above, notverygoodatflyingaeroplanes, here is what you have to do.

Go to your Primary Care Physician. Explain to them that your cat is “therapeutic” and list the reasons why. They will give you a note that says you need this cat for medical reasons. That is all you have to do to get a pet registered as emotional support or as a therapy animal.

Please note that a therapy animal is not a service animal. The only thing required for a therapy animal is that they are well behaved and don’t make excessive noise. I had to do this with my cat because I suffer severe depression and my cat honestly helps me deal with that and with my mood swings. The bonuses of a therapy animal means you don’t have to pay pet rent as long as you give your property manager a copy of the note from your PCP, and you CAN take your pet in the cabin on the airplane with you. This however requires additional vet information to ensure your pet is up on their shots, and they must be small enough to fit under the seat as they will count as your +carry on (like if you used a backpack and had your suitcase, the pet would replace the backpack)

It is a highly simple process and I recommend, if your cat is therapeutic to have, that you get this done.
