College kids literally don’t care about walking in the way of cars at school because we’re like “hit me i don’t care pay my tuition.”
"Hit me my thesis is due in 12 hours and I haven’t started it"
"Hit me I have a final in an hour and I didn’t study"
"Hit me I’ve been on a 24 hour drinking binge and I’m invincible"
"Hit me. You’re a university vehicle and I’ll get free tuition."
"Hit me I feel like a failure anyway"
Does anyone else have those really bad days when you just have this constant aching anxiety in your chest and your head hurts and you convince yourself that nobody actually likes you, and you feel like everything you do irritates everyone, and you want to cry, but you feel like that would just be another burden if someone walked in on you, so you don’t? Or is that just me…?
Corporations and big business need to pay their fair share — not to mention the other things that need to happen for true economic reform. Arrest criminal bankers, raise the minimum wage, reform hiring practices to avoid multiple low-wage positions at high hours, higher levels of worker organization for the service industry, closing tax loopholes, simplifying and reforming our tax code (a strongly progressive tax code), punishing companies for holding money offshore, etc. Consumers drive the economy, and they need money to do that.
