Link me!!! I want to read about your petty little miserable lives

Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted

i am a dumb piece of meat
and i rot everyday
my flesh gives a rotting smell
and people say it’s the smell of life
and they come to me
and watch me rot
and get happy and upset and annoyed and disgusted and maybe sometimes feel compasion
but they don’t realize they are rotting too.

Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt they can’t afford the time to think. Tuition fee increases are a “disciplinary technique,” and, by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the “disciplinarian culture.” This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy.
