dripping in gold


I’m procrastinating on homework by applying to college and if that doesn’t summarize senior year I don’t know what does

Anonymous: No, you know what? DON'T be prepared for disappointment. I applied for ONE college. Columbia College Chicago, which is super prestigious and at one point in the top ten schools in America. Do you know the kind of grades I had before my senior year? Some B's, a lot of C's, and one regretted D. I shaped up senior year of course and got all A's. I WAS ACCEPTED INTO THE ONLY, AMAZING, COLLEGE I APPLIED TO. YOU ARE SMART AND AMAZING. HAVE HOPE.

this is so inspiring and I read your second message and my god I hope you have the opportunity to transfer there because you deserve it

Dream Deferred


What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore—
And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

i don’t care if it’s a only a joke, please don’t make comments about how someone’s choice of field of study isn’t going to take them anywhere because it can be a great source of stress and your joke won’t help.

especially in the arts.  We’re under enough stress as it is

Fun Fact #16: The SAT has actually been out of 3000 this entire time. No one has ever achieved a perfect score. You are all failures.

I need someone who can keep up with me mentally and sexually
