Life's not fair. How many times have we all said and heard that? But it really isn't! Why does one person work his butt off and get no where but the other does much less and gets the praise in the end? I believe it all comes down to whose butt gets kissed along the way. Everything in American society is about kissing ass. In order to get anywhere in life in this country you have to be a smooth talker regardless of how you perform. RIDICULOUS! What is this society coming too? I guess it doesn't matter how smart you are or how well you do your work, what matters is how well you kiss the boss's rear!

I moved to Virginia a little more than a year ago. I began my college courses a year and a week after I moved here. I waited for a full year in order to have in-state residency. I applied for in-state and I was denied, because I did not pay income taxes. I did, however, buy a home and a car in the state, therefore pay taxes in that respect. I appealed the decision to deny me in-state tuition, and was once again denied. I am EXTREMLY frustrated with these decisions. I am trying to better myself, and whoever is making these decisions to deny me, are making it very difficult because I can't afford an extra $5,000 a semester to be classified as out of state. I'm so close to graduating, I don't want to quit, but who can afford this extra money? It's ridiculous!

The weather in D.C. this past week has been wonderful. The air has been brisk and cool. It is a welcome change from the heat and humidity of this summer. It makes it much more pleasant to do outdoor activities. It puts you in the mood for the fall holidays. Halloween is just aroud the corner and Thanksgiving isn't far behind.
