Foreign exchange student meme
The hilarious & pure foreign exchange student at my school
The myth of the wealthy foreign student is not fresh. Since the possibility of studying abroad has existed, students all over the world have stereotyped those who pay a little more to study abroad as being so wealthy that they live for high-end designer goods.
Others also pointed out that foreign students typically pay significantly higher fees than domestic students, do not have access to the same student loan scheme, and are unable to work as many – if any – hours to finance their studies.
While students from affluent families may have their studies and living expenses paid for by their parents, many students and their families worked extremely hard to get their children an education abroad, with many parents investing their entire life savings.
Other students would have been able to study abroad only because they were able to secure a subsidized university position through a scholarship, which means that although their tuition and possibly some living expenses were covered, they also needed to finance the remainder of their stay. This can be difficult due to additional obstacles such as jobs.

The music program lost support for all things musical a few years ago, and we now have to collect all of our own funds. Furthermore, the music hall’s ceiling began to collapse, flooding the band lockers, and there are still entire tiles missing from the ceiling due to the water. But, as you might be aware, the football team has received all-new uniforms.
And guess where all of the state’s money went? The football team from high school. Our taxes have increased in the last year or so due to the renovation of the bleachers/seating on the football field at my old high school. Even, despite all of our town’s signatures on a petition opposing the construction of a “student activity center” next to the school for the most important student athletes, the school got their way. Guess who doesn’t have enough money to keep their services going? Programs of fine arts. Friends in choir, band, and other extracurricular activities had to find creative ways to finance their activities because the school never bothered to fund them. It’s either that, or the teachers subtract money from their paychecks to purchase materials for their pupils (and public school teachers in the United States aren’t paid well), while the school spends all of its state funds on the football team. It’s crazy, and I’m happy I’m no longer in high school and no longer have to deal with a school that idolizes their football team while all other programs struggle to stay afloat.

So my neighbors had a foreign exchange student from China stay with them for a while, and she met this Chinese boy she really likes while she was here. She enjoys sharing photos of the two of them on Instagram and telling him how much she adores him Chinese. Since we all know that Instagram has a translate button, I enjoy translating her captions in my spare time. This one, I believe, speaks for itself.
It is a preference to be a decent guy. Don’t be misled into thinking that genuinely good people never have bad thoughts, are never tempted by the easy course, the low road, and never make mistakes or act selfishly. Never believe that anyone can be successful without putting in an effort. Every time you do something positive, you are making a deliberate effort to make the world a better place. Goodness is a preference, not an intrinsic characteristic. Continue to make it! I see you, I respect your achievements, and I am cheering for you!

The problem with England (and I can’t speak for the rest of Europe) is that our bigotry, xenophobia, and other bigoted views manifest differently than in America, and we use this to say that they don’t exist, even though our country is founded on them.
That is why the anti-Trump demonstrations were so important. We look at America all the time to explain our own racism. We’ll condemn America’s unjust wars while ignoring the fact that our own army and government backed them up.
Listen, I like my country—I like that we have a rich past (not that I endorse it, but just because everyone loves learning about the Roman Empire doesn’t mean they think it’s a positive thing), I like that we have countrysides and big diverse cities like London, I like that we love fish and chips and curry sauce, I love our old pubs and traditional pub food, I like that we have the NHS (though I dislike it), and I like that we have the NHS (though I dislike it).
