i’m so in love with this. i can’t even. ah. my favourite feeling in the world is putting your head beneath the water and entering an entirely different place, so peaceful, so quiet. what i miss more than anything when i’m living away from the ocean is being able to duck under and leave all my worries on the surface.

In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester.

As the article points out, this is before you take into consideration the cost of living, transportation, health care, or any other costs.

The other day, I had nothing on my mind. I was content. 

Tonight, I have so much.

I just want everyone I love (whether I know he or she like the back of my hand or not) to be happy. 

It’s okay to be sad. It is natural. You have to let it out. 

I hope to understand what you’re going through. But if I don’t, I still want to be there for you.

Please smile. Fake it till you make it.

Names mean nothing.

Paper credentials mean nothing.

Doors will close. And doors will open.

Life is tough, I know. We all have different shit we’re going through.

Please stay up. Things will get better with time and working on yourself and loving yourself and loving those around you.

I promise. I fucking promise.

And even though I never
asked her to, she takes
care of me. Handles me
with caution, and speaks
to me with dedication
on her tongue. She is
a vision of perfection,
a sight that is too precious
to be taken for granted.
When I look at her, I know
that everything I have
ever wanted is within
my reach. And when I
touch her, I know that I
will always be safe
in her arms.
