till you will see me again and live in me.
Till then my windows ache.” —Pablo Neruda (via doritoslut)

Well, I have found a Halloween costume, thanks to the goodwill store. A homemade purple bear suit. I plan on painting some skeleton teeth on my face as well, maybe similiar to the photo above. My partner in crime managed to find a cheetah mask, and a stylish gold lame jacket from the 80’s complete with sequins. I’m not really sure what he is, perhaps just a really hip feline.
We made a friend in this town finally, and we’ve been invited to a Halloween party where costumes are required. I’m sure somewhere down the line photos will manifest themselves.
You really can’t beat a 4 dollar bear suit though, how’s that for luck?
“[I]n my opinion there is no greater example of Washington politicians and K Street lobbyists working against our future prosperity than in the treatment of student loan debt. To be clear, this problem existed even before the crisis; families have been taking on crushing debt to help the kids get ahead for a few decades, as the cost of school has far outpaced inflation. It’s just come to a painful head now: graduates with no jobs, or low paying jobs are justifiably panicked that they will never be able to get the loans paid off. Meanwhile, many well-meaning parents who only wanted to help their kids by taking out loans for college, are now laid off, or in new jobs that pay less. Yet where’s the relief for these borrowers, who took out loans so their kids could compete in the workplace, or better yet, we collectively could compete in the global marketplace? Far from relief, here’s what we have: a bankruptcy system that does not allow student loans to be discharged. Many other debts can be discharged, but not student loans. Look, we want a society where everyone strives to repay their debts. That’s clear. But to single out education loans as the one type of debt that our system specifically prohibits from standard bankruptcy is flat-out wrong. We bail out the banks, but offer nothing to American families that borrowed to become more educated and competitive?”
