i was very relieved to read that Obama is working on student loan repayment reform, something i think would dramatically alleviate inequality. how can grads just out of school really get a jumpstart in life when they’re paying back as much as they’re receiving? this is assuming they get a job in the first place! of course, they should pay back what they borrowed, but the way things have been, with tuition rising and income flat-lining, the math does not add up. not unless you happen to land a kickass job, anyway.
on another note, i had a really strange dream last night. it involved climbing some sort of ladder to a better life in a country i felt proud of. hmmm… nahhh.
