    And What Has It Gotten Me...?

    Nothing, other than a shitload of student loan debt and worthless piece of paper that I can't even be bothered to buy a frame for. Unless you're a doctor or a theoretical physicist, college degrees really don't mean a whole hell of a lot in this society. Sorry...rant over.

    This is my graduation picture from college,

    and this was taken on the first days of 2014. Besides my diploma, this is one of the proofs that I completed five years of studying literature. Yup, in all those years, I was reading poems, fictions, essays, and after that I wrote analyses about them in college. Other than that...

    Two doctors, a psychiatrist and a proctologist, opened an office in a small town and put up a sign reading: "Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors". The town council was not happy with the sign, so the doctors changed it to read: "Schizoids and Hemorrhoids." This...
