ilovecharts:

Next up, let’s talk about college: Women now make up the majority of college and graduate students. Nice work!
Since the mid-1990s:
A greater share of young women have obtained four-year college degrees than men.
The share of young women enrolled in both undergraduate and graduate study has increased.
Most 18 to 34 year-old students are enrolled in undergraduate programs, and the percent enrolled in graduate school has gone way up.
Today, the share of young women enrolled in graduate school is more than 25% higher than the share of men. Learn more about how President Obama’s fighting to make college more affordable for women (and men).

I want to tell you I miss
you with no subtext. No guilt,
no anger, no expectation
that you’ll fix it. I don’t want
you to feel bad or to tell
me it will get better. This
is where we are meant to be
right now – me apart from you,
my hands a little empty and
my heart a little sad.
I just miss you.
I wanted you to know.
anne, fyi (via creatingaquietmind)

I know people take fortune cookies with a grain of salt, but it’s been a long time since I received a letter from a friend, and an even longer time from a guy. A lot of my guy friends whine about the inefficacy of snail mail, but I’m happy to see one of them still believes in the lost art. I was actually becoming slightly frustrated with this friend because we would start conversing and he would abruptly leave because he was interrupted with work. I decided to let it go because I know what it’s like to be too busy to keep up with friends sometimes; but his letter totally picked up where our last conversation left off, as if we never stopped.

Home

the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.

I’ve lived in more places in the past three years than in the past thirteen, and I’ve spent more time with co-workers and hotel staff than I have with my friends and family. I don’t mean to be complaining about first-world problems—living in a studio suite with a staff that cleans for me for the summer is a once-in-a-lifetime luxury I’m more than humbled to have, but I couldn’t help but reflect as my internship comes to an end next week.

I’ve grown to love living in Colorado more than I imagine I would have. While I lived in both halves of California, I think I needed to live in a different state to realize what a bubble I live in. I’ve worked with interns from all across the country, and I’m embarrassed to admit I wasn’t super savvy on my west/mid-west state geography.

I spent my summer with people that indulge in the outdoors and bond over hikes and road trips instead of gossip in the trendiest cafes and restaurants. Don’t get me wrong, I will forever be a California girl at heart (I shamelessly have 10 pairs of shoes with me here and NOTHING beats California weather), but I fell in love with the genuine sincerity of the people here. People work hard, but they have a much better concept of work-life balance I failed to see in my peers at school. I was also surprised to see young people in my office working in one place for more than five years. In California, most of the young adults I know don’t sit still for more than three years because they’re always chasing a higher salary or climbing up the corporate ladder. And I personally will engage in that culture myself when I graduate, but again, I love the change of pace and priorities I’ve experienced in the mile-high city.

Denver, you will be missed.
