Over the past six years, since the dawn of the Great Recession, we have seen the quality and quantity of music programs plummet. School districts in Florida, Kansas and Arizona have scaled their programs back to the extreme. In 2009, California diverted $109 million from music programs, resulting in closed music departments across half of California’s 10,000-plus public schools. Educators in New York City estimate that up to 85% of public school students have not received adequate musical instruction by the time they reach high school.

The crisis in music education is real. And there’s scientific evidence that we’re depriving our kids of tremendous cognitive benefits as a result.

Show this science to anyone who thinks we don’t need to teach our kids music (via micdotcom)

I hate it when guys on Tinder ask what I do for fun. What is fun? I’m a 23 year old law student. If I’m not reading, working, or crying, I’m drinking myself into oblivion with friends who are also taking a break from their choose-your-own-adventure lives of the same terrible options.

  • Me:This older generation pisses me off so much
  • Therapist:Why?
  • Me:Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.
  • Therapist:And?
  • Me:And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers
  • Therapist:Touche
