    Affordable Housing!!! And then I present it to the class & professor tomorrow morning. rock. Actually I'm almost done with the paper; seriously hate affordable housing.

    Seriously though, stupid grad school, stupid paper, stupid economics, stupid poor people. After this then 2 more papers to do (not on affordable housing, something a significantly more relevant) before next Monday, then I'm done w/my first year and halfway done. I'm so getting wasted all next week. Really I just needed to vent and distract myself for a few.

    actually no. My masters in clinical social work, its for my social welfare class. The program is great, this class is so not worth the effort vs. what I'll get out of it and actually use...stupid poor people.

    Someday you will have a job. You will have a boss. Your boss will tell you to do things that you don't want to do....

    Being a social worker you'd better get used to poor people.

    Just gonna point my finger and laugh; there's more to social work than poor people and stealing kids in the night.
  14. True, there are the drug addicted parents that rape and abuse their children. Who then in turn end up being messed up and abusing other children around them. While the social workers are helpless to really do anything to change the situation because the government has given the parents way more rights than they ever deserve. My girlfriend is in social work and deal with this stuff all the time. Not to mention her foster brother that is seriously messed up because his father beat the crap out of him, among other things, for the first four years of his life. All while CAS knew about it, but they couldn't prove it and thus, couldn't take him out of the home.

    For the record I was only kidding about pointing and laughing...I'm a rebel like that. I only point and laugh when people do funny things, not just the poor. I'm just really sick of studying the poor and the overall system; stupid social justice.

    Hey Arb,

    Sorry, I didn't catch this cry for help earlier. I'm an affordable housing consultant - affordable housing has been my professional life for the better part of 25 years. It is really not that bad. Shoot me a PM, if you have any questions.

    Hope the paper and your presentation were well received.

    With rent at $500 a month, and me being able to pay that, I would say that I live in affordable housing.
