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.

okay i’m demanding all of you reblog this and reblog it again because it’s that important. personality disorders are not an excuse for abusive behavior. if someone with a personality disorder does something that feels abusive and you ask them to stop and they don’t then they are a person with a personality disorder who is also abusive.

there are no excuses and no get-outs and there is no wiggle room in this, okay. personality disorders do not make you incapable of correcting cruel behavior or listening to your friends or not being abusive and if someone argues otherwise you shut them down and you send them my way, okay? i am so tired of people with my illness using my illness to excuse the fact that they are abusive

Artist Samantha Keely Smith paints breathtaking abstract landscapes that resemble the swirling waters of the ocean. Using oil paint, enamel, and shellac, Smith builds up multiple translucent layers of color, alternating between soft brushstrokes and large, sweeping gestures to evoke crashing waves, surging tides, and stormy floods.

And this is the importance of representation, especially for young children.
