I just watched a kid break down in the bookstore because his books for the semester totaled $600 and that鈥檚 the american university system in a nutshell

I was on the verge of tears when I got to the cashier so yeah, that鈥檚 messed up

Go here and just, don鈥檛 waste any more money okay?

YES. I FOUND THE THING, IF ANYONE DOESN鈥橳 HAVE MONEY FOR COLLEGE TEXT BOOKS LIKE ME, THEN GO HERE OKAY?

Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores is聽running to become the first Latina Lieutenant Governor聽of her state.聽 She鈥檚 no billionaire鈥檚 wife, no Ivy League prodigy, no daughter of some ruling-class family from Latin America.聽 Lucy Flores grew up poor in a family of 13 children. A daughter of immigrants, she dropped out of high school, got involved in gangs and spent time incarcerated. She saw all her sisters become teen mothers and didn鈥檛 want that for herself. When she became pregnant at 16,聽she had an abortion that she doesn鈥檛 regret.

She eventually turned her life around. She went to college and later law school. Yet she doesn鈥檛 twist her success into a bootstraps narrative of a self-made woman. Instead, she acknowledges all the support she got along the way.聽聽She bears witness to the fact that it was the chance generosity of individuals, and not a reliable safety net in our society that made the difference. Her own lived experience becomes the basis of her progressive agenda for social change.

Lucy Flores defies the politics of respectability. She鈥檚 single, childless, honest about her sexual past, and fierce in her advocacy for poor and marginalized people.聽聽She takes bold stands on immigration, education, and domestic violence. Her experience makes her an effective advocate, but it also makes her a new kind of role model for Latina women.聽聽Like聽Justice Sonia Sotomayor before her, we are watching a smart, single, childless Latina rise from poverty to political authority.聽聽But Flores鈥 background not only includes the 鈥渉umble beginnings鈥 of poverty, but the stigmatizing experiences that can accompany poverty, like jail, dropping out, and unplanned pregnancy.聽

do you ever cook something in the microwave but it鈥檚 still really cold in the middle and you just keep eating it instead of heating it longer because life is pointless and entropy is unavoidable and the universe is filled with callous and casual destruction
