People have been constantly arguing against minimum wage..its stupid, I think. Arguing against minimum wage is, to me, is like agreeing to the conditions that are currently happening. To say that people need to get an education to deserve their wage really need to think about what they’re saying. We are currently living a situation where, (unless you’re parents are heavily financially stable), parents are squeezed and eventually throw in the towel, asking for their kids to go to work to help out in living expenses, while being in school. I’m tired of finding out that more and more of my peers in college have 2, even (crazy..) 3 jobs to support themselves, while they’re focusing on school. I have two jobs myself, and only with both can i keep myself financially stable to be independent, living on my own and pursuing a full-time student tuition. It’s fucking hard. Exhaustion. The constant contemplation of whether homework or a small nap is the present priority. I didn’t ask for the bags under my eyes, but the way i want to live my life demands it. If i want to study what i want with my own free will, live on my own and support myself, i have to work hard. If minimum wage was raised, i’d be more than willing to let go of a job and stick to just one, focusing on school, raising my academic value altogether. For those who want to stay in school, not having to worry about spending time making the income can focus on school. For those who don’t want to go to school, they shouldn’t be forced to go to make a decent living. Remember, there are those that are amazing at hands-on work while others are just as great in dealing with more mental situations. To say that minimum wage shouldn’t be raised is to say that what is going on today is more okay than the situation that will occur if minimum wage is raised. If others are able to sustain themselves with just one job, they wouldn’t be “hogging” the job market, allowing others to jump in the experience. I for one, am totally up for raising minimum wage, because i want to study plants, dammit; i dont want to spend 46-56 hours a week working and cramming my life’s passion on the side.

THE BROTHERS AT NAGASAKI
Probably one of the most intense picture I have ever posted. Extremely depressing content.
The photograph above was taken by US Marines photographer Joe O’Donnell shortly after the bombing of Nagasaki. He saw things beyond imagining, and the experience left him with depression in his later years. Yet according to O’Donnell’s son, the image above affected him more than any other.
The younger child in the picture is dead. The older boy is his brother, and he’d carried his sibling on his back to a crematory. The older boy stayed and watched his brother burn yet refused to cry. He bit his lip so hard it bled.
The boy had just lost everything to the most destructive force known to mankind. Yet, barefoot, he’d carried his sibling’s body to ensure he was honored properly. It’s a story of the extremes of sadness and bravery—and the photograph captures both.

The stadium of Union Berlin has been transformed into a giant living room. Supporters were invited to bring their own sofas to watch World Cup matches on a giant screen. End tables and lamps were provided; the couches will be allowed to stay at the stadium for the entire tournament. (x)

Last week I went without a single cup of coffee. That was my longest stretch for many, many years and I was very happy with myself. Over the weekend I ended my break with one cup on each day. There’s nothing I enjoy more than waking up on a Saturday or Sunday, enjoying a nourishing breakfast, then…
