If your an ed major you have to know Paolo Freire. He was Brazilian and wrote “The Pedagogy of the Oppressed.” The book is about how students from low income communities learn.

My experience volunteering with Habitat for Humanity

My experience volunteering with Habitat for Humanity

It was so much fun. The Habitat people in charge were nice. They provided us with boots (bring socks). Hot 97 hosted  it and gave us T-shirts. There was also a group from The U.S. Army. Pizza was provided for lunch. And there were some cute guys there! The only down side is now my allergies are killing me and all the dirt I was around probably has something to do with it. Join their email list…

Just saying… Embrace what you have and don’t let product companies make you think that there’s a miracle product out there for natural hair. If someone would have told me that earlier on, I would have saved a lot of time, money & effort.


Yea some women be having semi-perms / texturizers and don’t tell anyone! Nota mention. And some JUST got their hair done and u sitting there thinking their hair always looks like that. Meanwhile they were at the salon this morning. They have every right to keep their business on the hush tho. But Shout out to the women who give you the real real!

The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.

—Terry Pratchett, “Men At Arms”

This is one of the best breakdowns I’ve ever seen of how expensive it is to be poor. (via sosungalittleclodofclay)
