So, hypothetically… if I could take a bunch of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and read books at Barnes and Noble all day… and then be able to display my knowledge and understanding of the subject on an equal, if not higher, level than a college student… then, hypothetically… why is everyone paying for college again?

(Answer: Because a college degree isn’t about education, it’s a class marker. If we cared about everyone being educated, we would accredit free online courses and allow people to achieve intellectual growth and success without going into debt. But that’s not what college is for. I mean, yeah in college you can travel and learn from amazing professors and start your own anything and have access to facilities and resources and money, yeah, college is all that. And I’m not discrediting anyone who loves college but… college, at the end of the day is a business. College is just one more big way to perpetuate the system. But I say f**k the system, man.) #FreeEducationForAll #LearnRadically

It’s not so much that I forget I’m a vegetarian, it’s that I forget other people eat meat.

We both hustle, we both cook, we both clean, we both pay, we both spoil each other.

I promise I’ll stop chasing your memory in my dreams.

I’ll stop bringing your name up over cups of coffee, muffins, and loneliness.

I will marry a woman and I will lay my heart on her chest like red roses on Mahogany caskets and I’ll have her daughter and she’ll have eyes reminding me that God…
