It’s like you look at the world around you and you can’t help but think that this is all you’ll get. That’s such a selfish and ungrateful thing to say isn’t it? You’re given an entire world, breathing with as much life as you are, and you look it straight in the eyes and say “Can you be anymore boring?” But that’s what happens. You learn how to forget beauty. You learn how to forget what it’s like to be excited, and amazed, and content. Not even to be happy. Just to be content. You forget how to live with yourself. And all you can do is look out at the horizon, with the sun’s light making the skyscrapers seem studded with diamonds, and go "So?"
- student: hey government can I have some money to go to university
- uk government: sure here you go. you'll have to pay it back but only when you're earning £21,000+ a year, and if you don't pay it off after 30 years we'll just write it off, don't worry about it man
- scottish government: nah man just go to uni we ain't gonna charge you
- us government: no. you gotta pay it yourself. upfront. your parents have to save up from the moment you're born. good luck, loser.
