I don’t even post on here anymore…just the occasional reblog…
Got finals in one week (ugh) so I have to study for those eventually. Fall quarter was a good length of time. It didn’t feel like it went by too quickly, but it’s already December and I kinda wish it wouldn’t end. I’m in a pretty good place right now. Doing okay in my classes, I have time to spend with my friends, met some new people, and I just bought a shitload of clothes this weekend.
My apartment didn’t fall apart; though I can hear the neighbors upstairs when they’re showering and stuff. Kinda creepy haha.
It’s getting colder and colder, which is great because I got a couple sweaters that I want to wear. Gotta enjoy this weather while it lasts.
But anyways, life’s going well for me. Hopefully it’s going well for everyone else.
So I wasn't giving a crap about my Business Law homework and ended up writing a brief treatment for a romantic comedy film.
Here’s what I’m turning in. I hope I don’t get kicked out of this class…
According to the textbook, under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, “certain student loan debts can be discharged…if the court finds that payment of the debt would constitute an ‘undue hardship’ for the debtor.” So yes, student loans are dischargeable under certain conditions. I believe that the court should grant her request. The original five-year plan called for Coleman to pay her entire disposable income towards these loans. However, now that she has been laid off, she has literally no disposable income to speak of; hopefully she has six months’ worth of living expenses in the bank that she can use while she fruitlessly looks for another teaching position. This is an undue hardship as she is unemployed.
As she has literally no disposable income, there is an alternative to discharging the loans, which is to have her pay $0 towards the loans until she is able to once again find employment. But that could encourage Coleman to not find work for the rest of her five-year payment plan, as working would give her no benefit other than to pay off a six-figure loan. Work is not it’s own reward in this case, so this is an undue hardship.
Instead, she would quickly and desperately find a semi-wealthy bachelor in his late 20’s/early 30’s and marry into his family so that she can continue surviving without the debt collection agency breathing down her back. The bachelor has his own reasons for this sudden marriage; his eccentric grandfather’s will leaves him a large sum of money, but only if he is married. After a quick wedding, Coleman’s marriage is revealed as a sham and seemingly misguided (an undue hardship?).
Tears will be shed, best friends will be slept with, and Robin Williams will make a surprise cameo as the male lead’s father. But after a dramatic breakdown by Coleman at a restaurant-cum-art gallery that causes property damage worth upwards of five figures, the two realize that there’s a chance that the two are meant for each other. Coleman has a damaged past, but is driven to succeed. The man that she married seemed standoffish, but in fact was hiding his heart of gold in fear he would be taken advantage of. They renew their vows on the spot, thanks to their mutual friend who happens to be a minister ordained by the state, and drive away, unsure of the destination, but enjoying every minute of the journey.
Just checking to see if anyone is actually reading the homeworks. Hello Professor, or his TAs. Any ideas for the title to my proposed romantic comedy hopefully starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Watson, and Paul Giamatti as a sleazy financial adviser? I’m thinking either Interest Date, A Debt to Love, Marriage Dues, or A Heart on Loan.
just a reminder: we’re two periods away from 2014.
you couldn’t just say months you had to measure time with your menstrual cycle
fUN FACT. the earliest form of a calender that’s ever been found was to keep track of an ancient person’s menstrual cycle. ppl with vaginas invented time. there is a reason that months are about the same length as the time between periods. that is all.
^ pretty sure the earliest calendars kept track of the moon but okay…besides, aren’t periods hella irregular if you’re not on birth control? so unless estrogen/progestin tablets existed in ancient times, Tumblr’s miseducating people again.
it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and i for one certainly didn’t sign up for that
this is seriously all i fucking think about
do you guys understand how much we fucked up when developing our society
you don’t have to go to school. you don’t have to go to college. you don’t have to get a job.
but good luck finding a place to live, or finding money for food, or finding money for the computer with which you’re using.
you can’t change what’s happened to you, but you certainly can control what will happen to you.
Mr comes from the French monsieur, which I think literally translates as ‘my lord’ and basically just means master, and Mrs comes from maistre which is the feminine form of master, so actually—for once—no.
This was an extremely relevant comment and I thank you for educating me
The best kind of friends to have are the people who you just met and there’s an instant spark between you two so it feels like you’ve known them your entire life even though you’ve known each other in a short period of time.
