Re: “Portland as Fuck

Yes, the cost of higher education is ridiculous. Yes, the value of a bachelor's degree has dropped. Yes, the economy sucks and people just getting out of college are screwed (I'm a recent grad). But to blame it on the school itself? It's not like you were at AIU or Phoenix or the terrible ones that trap students who have no chance of paying or getting a job.

You went to college, like kids in our generation were supposed to do. Me too. But I studied and realized what it would take to, you know, live after graduation. Fucking around for 4+ years and then figuring out what to do after I had a diploma in my hand never seemed like a valid option to me, or plenty of other recent graduates who are now employed. Don't blame your laziness and shortsightedness on the system, however flawed the system may be. And please don't expect the world to feel sorry for you because you didn't quite grasp what you needed to do in college.

Also, commenters, please don't stereotype all college graduates. I know, I can go fuck myself, I'm being condescending, etc. But I'm not lazy, and I worked really hard to be where I am. Plenty of people understand the opportunities they receive with access to a higher education, they just don't have their own column.
