intelligent, gent, man, gentry, gentrification

'You seem to like causing friction, am I right?'

You said that we are part of the academic elite. 

As a student of an uppity university filled with snobby crassness and the occasional kind soul, I begged to differ.

And because I made you pull your justifications from the abyss of your mind and make you face your ignorance, you were taken aback.

I find it hilarious, how educators love to question

But don’t like to be questioned

Since when did you stop learning?

Since you earned your PhD in egocentricity and academic chic?

It simply isn’t in, darling, to question the superior intellect of a man who thinks he knows.

Elitism. Ugh. Disgusting. Look at me, look at how different and above everyone else I am. IF SomEONe saYS ELITE to me again I will rip the OFFENSIVE AND DEROGATORY UTTERANCE from every dictionary I see.

The ever-present gentrification of the mind, it will only stop when the privileging of thought is no more.

Children, women, men, no matter what opportunities are afforded to them, have a profound capacity for thought.

Your ability to think and comprehend is SHOULD NOT BE JUDGED ON the extent of your formal education.

DAMMIT THIS IS WHY PEOPLE CAN’T GET ANYWHERE

I’m so mad but I’m sipping tea so the madness is diffusing into the steam and I feel like a deflating blow up sword.

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!
