This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!
SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

I’m starting to discover a Buddhist way of life. I want to live with limited material possessions, I want to have a clear mind and head, I want to treat my body with the respect it deserves. I want to meditate, observe nature, relish in it. I want to discover the wisdom within me. I want to stop being so miserable and realize the world has so many petals like a flower waiting for me to discover. I want to live in every moment, grasp it in my mind, paint it vividly, capture it like a polaroid.
Do you ever wonder how many missed connections happen daily? Like when a stranger gives you a very sweet friendly smile and it kind of makes your day? It’s that kind of smile that makes you feel acknowledged because they don’t even know you, but you can tell they are a bit curious about you. If you were in the same room you would probably talk to each other because your body language is inviting. Then there’s the kind of smile where it’s friendly, but most likely given because it’s a habit out of politeness. The “lets not make this staring awkward so lets smile to each other” kind of smile. We humans are such inquisitive creatures and the way we communicate whether verbally or non-verbally will never cease to amaze me.
