My name is Caitlin Michael and I am currently enrolled at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA. I am a business management major, with two minors: marketing and operational excellence. I hope to earn my masters in management, with a focus in operational excellence, once I graduate.

The problem is, my dreams are at risk because I cannot afford to attend this year, and I cannot complete my credits at a community college, because I did so well in AP classes in high school.

In high school, I graduated with a 4.3 GPA, highest honors, and in the national honor society. I also graduated with over 600 hours of community service, and as part of numerous organizations including: the audition-in choir, art club, musicals, drama club, PACS (student council), and as a helper for special needs children.

So far in college, I have maintained a 3.874 GPA and earned a place on the dean’s list for both the fall 2013 and spring 2014 semesters. I am still volunteering, taking part in school activities (such as the women in business club), and working almost full time at a local store.

Unfortunately, when I was only four years old, my birth mother was murdered by my biological father. Because of these events, my maternal grandparents took care of me and eventually adopted me years later. I am so grateful to have a supporting and loving family, but with their age and necessary (medical, rent, etc) expenses, they cannot put me through college. They are unable to take out any loans in their name, and they cannot cosign a loan for me. This means that all my expenses must be paid out of pocket, and I just cannot do that.

I want to break the cycle that my grandparents and birth mother fell into. My dream is to graduate from my first choice, Saint Vincent College. I hope that I may have a chance at valedictorian, but first I need to find a way to keep attending. Anything that would help me to pay off outstanding debts to the school, purchase books, and pay this coming year’s tuition would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Please signal boost this. Anything at all helps! and even if I don’t meet my goal I get to keep what people have donated!

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”

~Plato’s The Symposium.

How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”

We did it at school. The myth also says that the pairings could be male/female, male/male or female/female (just sayin’)

sometimes you don’t need to find someone else

my mom told me that in high school she used to get boyfriends at the beginning of February so they had enough time to get her a valentines day gift and then break up with them the day after and just keep the gift and one day she told her parents about it and they made her keep her boyfriend at least until the end of February and so she did and that boy is now my dad

It’s not your body anymore, when there is a baby present. Carry that child to term responsibly, or you’re a murderer.

No, I’m sorry, but that’s idiotic.  It’s my body no matter what.  If I wanted to get an abortion i’d get a fucking abortion regardless if that made me a murderer in someone who doesn’t have to actually carry a baby’s eyes.  Birth control being more widely available is a serious issue.  You’re stupid if you think every situation that leads to abortion makes someone a murderer.  11 year old gets raped by her cousin “No girl, you carry that child, you squeeze that out of your currently underdeveloped vagina.  It’s the right thing to do.  You’re a murderer if you don’t.  Who cares that it’ll emotionally scar you for life and you’ll forever be reminded of it every time you look at your child or cousin.  It’s the humane thing to do.  If you were older you’d understand.”  Shit, the same thing happened to a nine year old “Who the fuck cares if you’re only a baby yourself, you’re totally going to go through with this, I don’t care if it’ll nearly kill you or damage your insides.  Raise that baby like a good non-murderer.”  

Then we go overseas where it’s all “You’re pregnant out of wedlock, let’s stone you to death instead of giving you and others like you birth control or the option to abort.  I’m sorry that we live in such a fucked up society that if I force myself on you and get pregnant you’re still the one who is shamed.  Wait no I’m not, suck it up and deal with it”, “You’ve been told your baby is dying in the womb, no abortion for you girl, you have to keep it and die of blood poisoning.  Too bad we could have avoided it if we were more understanding of a woman and her body”.

Open your eyes for God’s sake.  You can’t even get pregnant, you’re a man and I get that you have a right to your unborn child and the potential for mental trauma.  But you personally are not at risk of dying from pregnancy complications.  You personally are not at risk of being shunned by your community and killed for carrying someone elses child.  You personally are not having to carry the mental and physical scars of going through an unwanted pregnancy with your potential rapists child.  You personally are not at risk of being considered used, dirty and unwanted because of something you could have avoided if proper health care was available to you.  You aren’t personally responsible for raising a child (or person with mental capacity of a child) who also has a child because “Abortion is murder in all circumstances”.

It’s not your body either, and until you have to deal with everything above then you cannot tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body.

My roommate, laying it the fuck down.

Reblogging again because I really needed that ignorance to be addressed, and it was, and I needed that.
