College, Food, and Fucking: Ronald Reagan stuck it to millennials: A college debt history lesson no one tells Dramatic, awful changes occurred on my generation's watch and it amounts to a fiendishly successful conspiracy PETER LUNENFELD wes-stoodis: lokicolouredglasses: imathers: abraxuswithaxes: smallrevolutionary: trungles: shorterexcerpts: styro: salon: Ronald Reagan pretty much ruined everything for millennials. fuckin鈥 ronnie I try and bring up how he ruined free in state tuition in the name of hippie bashing when he was California鈥檚 governor often, but don鈥檛 exactly have the biggest platform. 鈥淲orst of all, these students鈥 sense of the future is constrained by planning for and then paying down their student loans, often for decades. Economists are waking up to the fact that when young Americans enter the workforce burdened with over a trillion dollars in cumulative debt, they become risk averse, unwilling to move, less able to make major purchases, and slower to become homeowners.聽Not coincidentally, they don鈥檛 feel safe enough to register any major protests against the society that鈥檚 done this to them.鈥 Damn. i am reblogging again because鈥.. fuck ronald reagan forever and ever and ever and ever. Economists should be adept in their fields, how are they only now realizing that paying off our student debt is a fucking priority over anything else other than food? Weird, it鈥檚 almost like there鈥檚 something missing from the study of economics. Who would have possibly thought that a young generation owing trillions of dollars could have a negative effect on the economy?

Advice, Ass, and Bad: embyrr922 pyrrhiccomedy ifshehadwings ovaadosedonconfidenc Intuition is real. Vibes are real. Energy doesn't lie. Tune in This is actually called thin slicing. Your brain recognizes patterns from very small "slices" of information by comparing them to things you have experienced betore. This all happens very quickly ona subconscious level without our conscious mind being involved. So intuition is actually really fast pattern recognition, and it can be very accurate. So yeah, if you have a gut feeling that a person or situation is not good, get the hell out. Your brain knows what's up When I was young - because l've always been a big skeptical pain in the ass I thought that when people were talking about interpersonal "energy," they were on some Gay Ass Shit. Years later, after spending hundreds of hours reading studies about intuition and neuroscience and pattern recognition and the processing power of the subconscious mind, I realized that that kind of talk - "she has such good energy," "you need to read the energy of the room," "l just got some really bad energy off of that guy - is a convenient shorthand for the lightning-rast, weirdly-accurate, real-as-fuck subconscious processing of the probability of positive or negative social outcomes likely to result from hundreds or thousands of variables. That "energy" isn't a tangible thing floating around in the air. It's your brain updating you constantly with information about your situation. Listen to it. Especially if it's telling you to be nervous or scared. Your brain is very good at recognizing danger. Let the enormous processing power of your subconscious mind protect you. It's better at spotting patterns than you are "Bad energy" isn't some hippie shit. It's your brain setting off a claxon because it knows something's not right. Thin slicing is wonderfully helpful, but be aware that if it's doing its pattern recognition from bad sources, you need to actively override it. We're raised in a racist society, inundated with racist media, and bombarded with subtly (or unsubtly) racist advice. Thin slicing can save your life, but it's also the cause behind the unconscious elements of racism (and misogynylableism/antisemitism/islamophobia/etc.) that we all suffer from Trust your instincts, but if your instincts tell you something that seems prejudicial, double check their work Trust your gut. Unless your gut is a dumbass.

Advice, Being Alone, and College: Gabriella @gabriellarichh Last night some girl came running up to me whispering "please pretend to be my friend this man has been following me for 6 blocks" as soon as this guy saw me hugging her he said "fuck" and went the other way. Please ladies stay safe and never walk alone! Co. des @ddestinyynicole l expect all you girls that get scared like this just to run up and hug me, don't even ask, just do it. onecatshort: eclecticstudentwriter: succubus-is-smol: black-hippie-moonchild: 17mul: phoenixwolf876: lovelynemesis: This has happened to me before when I was in college at a frat party. This girl comes squeezing herself in between me and my friend and throws her arms around me. 鈥淎manda, I am so glad you decided to come!鈥 I was so confused and just figured she was drunk and mistaked me for someone else, until I saw the panic on her face. She leaned close and whispered that a guy was following her, was certain that he had put something in her drink and if I would please play along. I looked behind her and sure enough, some creep was watching her like a hawk. We invited her to hang out with us the rest of the night and even waited until her ride showed up just to make sure she was safe. Always look out for each other! If you ever feel scared like this just come up to me like we have been friends since kindergarten, call me any name u can come up with ill play along. 馃棧 馃憣馃従 Stay together, stay safe Perfect advice.I鈥檓 reblogging this as a guy, because first of all, if you鈥漴e a guy : DON鈥橳 DO THAT. Don鈥檛 be that creep. And if you鈥檙e a guy and you notice some creep is following or stalking a girl, and that she鈥檚 obviously uncomfortable or panicked, go ahead and say hi, long time no see, pretend to be her cousin, and tell her discretly you noticed there was a shady guy. Ask her if something鈥檚 wrong, if she feels unsafe, if she wants your help (very important - she may not trust you enough, no one could blame her, don鈥檛 take it personally). (and don鈥檛 you dare take advantage of the help you offered for a flirt opportunity, that would make you no better than the creep) We can all stop 鈥渨itnessing and do nothing鈥, and set an example. Reblog every time because there are new stories every time.
