THEORIES ABOUT THE UNIVERSE
I am trying to see things in perspective.
My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter
chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot
have this, because chocolate makes dogs
very sick. My dog does not understand this.
She pouts and wraps herself around my leg
like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me
to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in,
she eventually gives up and lays in the corner,
under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the
universe has my best interest in mind like I have
my dogs. When I want something with my whole
being, and the universe withholds it from me,
I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl.
She thinks this is what she wants, but she
does not understand how it will hurt.
Chris and Tom offered to help me train to become a police officer.
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!
This is so true. I go to a college that’s $15,000 a year (that’s with my scholarship) and that’s considered cheap for a lot of schools in the US. By the time I’m done I should only have to pay $60,000 but, since I’m borrowing the money from the government, it’s going to be somewhere over $150,000. Plus, the longer I don’t pay it, the more money I owe. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO GET A JOB RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE? It’ll take me decades to pay off that amount of money.
I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
