Ponder This:

Hypothetically I would save more money working minimum wage and getting medicaid than I would working a 35k+ full-time job where I need to pay an almost $2,000 medical insurance deductible just to be able to go to urgent care for $60.

Additionally, half the jobs I’ve applied for in my lifetime haven’t required a college degree. I’m so glad I went to a great school and graduated with highest honors. It just gives me peace of mind to know it really mattered. And okay, yes, maybe I should have studied coding instead of humanities, but it’s not my fault I told my teachers I was bad at math and they put me in honors anyway.

…this country is so fucked up.
