White privilege is being about to rep your set without being shamed for doing so.

US COLLEGES. 

for real though.

forreals

American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.

Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.

Most schools are between 40-60K.  Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.
And no.  That’s not a typo.

im already at 36K, with one year to go

the college i’m looking at it 32k a year.

yet people shame others for not having a college degree. makes no sense, really 

okay so perks of being a canadian are being suddenly realized by me again, gosh though you guys really need to protest or something its ridiculous how costly it is in the States.

Not saying we need a rebellion but that’s exactly what I’m saying… I’ve had it up to here with Americas bullshit

robin williams died today.
here is a list of things that robin williams was:
funny
sharp
kind
clever
and sad.
that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.
but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.
we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.
but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.
those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.
sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.
if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquite didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t. 
don’t.

This is the most beautiful eulogy I have ever read.
