“In a survey of 300 British university students, 10 percent reported knowing a student who had worked as a prostitute or escort in 2010. One writer says that increase coincides with rising tuition costs.”—
As I was growing up I remember being disappointed when I found out that celebrities that played couples in movies weren’t really together. I think that the one one I was most disappointed with was Kristie Alley and John Travolta in Look Who’s Talking, probably because they remind me of my my own parents. Just a little thought while watching Grease.
“You’re looking at all this money and you’re thinking ‘Wow, this is for one semester of school,” the out-of-state student told a Colorado news station about toting the cash to the bursar’s office in a duffel bag.
I love it. The cost of education is getting out of hand, especially considering the fact that there’s a lot of unemployed people out there with degrees. This is a great way to raise awareness.
SALMON, Idaho — Bird enthusiasts are reporting rising numbers of snowy owls from the Arctic winging into the lower 48 states this winter in a mass southern migration that a leading owl researcher called “unbelievable.”
Just looked at blackboard as a precaution before class tomorrow……it’s a good thing too, because I already have 3 chapters that are up to read for my U.S. and Middle East class! Not to mention the fact that she is already informing us of a quiz we have on the 17th of February….. I really don’t want to know what kind of a quiz needs 3 weeks of advanced studying. I may be in over my head with this class.
Back at school and I’m really not feeling fourth semester vibes at all. I just spent a week in absolute paradise and now I have 47 days until I get to go home…..yeah I’ve been here an hour and I’ve already counted. Really wish I could have fallin in love with being poor and having a lousy job, my life would be so much easier. Kinda of thinking of becoming a housewife….doesn’t look too hard.
I am currently taking a class that focuses on women in leadership positions. It was originally going to be taught by an actual professor, but due to uncontrollable circumstances it is being taught by an administrator who is very qualified for the job.
Today in class we were talking about obstacles that may stand in our way as we find our places in the world. I was always brought up with the belief that if I worked my ass off I could be or do anything I wanted to. Well, during lecture my professor decided to speak up and says something that more or less ticked me off. She said that she often has to tell people that their dreams will never become a reality and that they need to find new passions in life, because their GPA or ACT is too low or their struggling in their classes. She acts really ticked off that she is left with this task rather than the parents or a high school guidance counselor taking care of it before hand.
The reason this got to me so badly is because, while we sit here and talk about how, as women, we are supposed to be advancing into higher positions, she stands there and tells us that instead of working really hard and taking extra classes to achieve what we really want in our lives, we are supposed to give up and find something else. I know many smart people who struggled in school and are in leadership positions and many of them are business owners. your performance in school says little about your character and ability. Some people don’t like school, and often times I find that those people are the smartest people I know. I absolutely hate math and chemistry, but I want to become a doctor, and I’m gonna do whatever it takes to achieve that goal. A bad grade in a class is not going to be what stops me from doing that.
Rule #1 in life: Don’t you ever allow someone to tell you that you can’t do something. That because your grades aren’t good enough, you can’t be what you’ve always dreamed of being. Don’t you dare let someone take control over your life.You need to fight tooth and nail for whatever it is you want. You want it? Go and get it!
So I’ve decided to create a new tumblr in order to be able to have one in which my friends can follow (not this one) and one that others can follow. I was finding that my old tumblr was getting me into the same troubles that Facebook was and that’s not fun. I love this site and I enjoy posting here so this will probably turn out to be a mix of personal and interpersonal things. So here we go i guess…..
