Looked up the reference in Julia Ecklar’s song, “Cathedral” and… wow. This is the Cathedral of Learning, located on the main campus of the University of Pittsburgh. And inside…
TIME’s new cover makes me so mad I could write essays about it, but instead I’m going to keep job hunting since in today’s world a university degree means nothing and therefore like much of my generation, I’m stuck choosing between minimum wage jobs and internships that I can’t afford to accept in an attempt to pay off my tens of thousands of dollars worth of student debt.
I’d be interested in reading this article to see exactly what makes us entitled and lazy. Are we lazy because more of us are completing high school and going to college than ever before? Are we entitled because our standard of living is declining? Do we live with our parents because we’re too slothful to leave or is because our education costs are getting steeper and steeper while we’re getting less and less aid?
Tell us, Time Magazine, about how we’re narcissistic little slugs when we’re faced with an economic crisis that resulted in a lowering of our standard of living, an increase in tuition costs and how when we get out of our very expensive schools, more and more of us are going to end up working minimum wage jobs.
… Did no one read the line underneath that says ‘why they’ll save us all’?
Looks like someone fed Time a line and they swallowed it hook, line, and center. Look, folx, that’s fiscal conservatism in action…

Thought this made no scientific sense, it seemed to work.
“The optic screen in his mind stored entire logarithmic tables to be called on as needed.”
“When it comes to my body, we have no secrets, these three people and me.”
“For a long time no sound broke the deathlike stillness of the jungle midday save the piteous wailing of the tiny man-child”
“The theory was that being surrounded by these things for the better part of our hours in school we could not help but develop some standard of beauty.”
“And thank God he did.”
I should mention the book in question turned out to be L.A. Bizarro. Which is a guide to weird stuff in LA. (a lot of the stuff in it isn’t weird and they missed a lot of actual weird stuff but it’s pretty funny none the less.) I guess this means I should try more things? I dunno.
