"In 1979, when the minimum wage was $2.90, a hard-working student with a minimum-wage job could earn enough in one day (8.44 hours) to pay for one academic credit hour. If a standard course load for one semester consisted of maybe 12 credit hours, the semester’s tuition could be covered by just over two weeks of full-time minimum wage work—or a month of part-time work. A summer spent scooping ice cream or flipping burgers could pay for an MSU education. The cost of an MSU credit hour has multiplied since 1979. So has the federal minimum wage. But today, it takes 60 hours of minimum-wage work to pay off a single credit hour, which was priced at $428.75 for the fall semester."

sorry everyone

Excuse me.
One of the first women to start her own independent production company.
Earned her way to stardom without sleeping with executives for roles.
Refused to date people for publicity just because 20th Century Fox wanted her to.
Left 20th Century Fox because she refused to let them get away with treating her badly and paying her a tiny wage, just because of her “dumb blonde” image.
Was only paid a fraction of her co-star’s wage even though she was the star of the movies and the biggest box office pull, but still went ahead with the movies because she was so passionate about acting.
Studied method acting at the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg, who said that she was one of his best students along with Marlon Brando.
Had a personal library of over 500 books and rarely read fiction - she was desperate to learn and educate herself.
Was sexually abused as a child but then went on to encourage the sexual liberation of women in the 1950s. 
One of the first people to speak openly about sexual abuse.
One of the first people to openly support gay rights.
Supported many charities such as the Milk Fund, March of Dimes, Arthritis and Rheumatism foundation.
Donated her time and money to these charities.
Visited orphanages and hospitals on her own time to surprise the people there.
Married one of the greatest literary minds of the 20th century
Suffered two miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy and still put on a brave face for her fans.
Sorry, did you say she wasn’t a role model? 

marilyn is my biggest role model so don’t even go there

and let’s not forget this

Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.
"She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it." - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe

OH SHIT YOU JUST GOT SERVED

I got goosebumps reading this. Amazing.

im pretty sure the person made the picture as a joke just to get a reaction and you guys really supplied them with one hell of one omg bless it

Been meaning to say this for awhile

kkludgy:

But I’ve been thinking recently how much my mental health has improved with my quality of life. Truly, money (and improved circumstances) has bought happiness for me.

To anyone who thinks you can “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” when suffering from a mental illness (or even not!), think about being cold all the time because your rented apartment is drafty and you can’t afford to turn up the heat. Think about spending 2-3 hours per day on public transit to get to your job (because you can’t afford to live downtown). Think about constantly being cramped for time and space and then try and fit exercise and healthy eating in there. Make sure you factor in a sleep deficit (see: hours spent on public transit).

My depression has steadily improved every year as my circumstances have . I’m sure there will be diminishing returns at some point (because I know rich people can suffer mental illness, too) but I just want to put that out there.


Being warm, well-rested, having access to healthy food and time to prepare it, and the luxury of time to exercise as I want is 100% a result of having more money. I don’t intend this as an “omg so blessed !!” Kinda thing but rather a reminder that fighting a mental illness is so. Much. Harder. When you haven’t had a hot meal in weeks. And I am truly blessed that I can look back at those times and see how much happier I am now .
