Cheers to getting up as my class was starting instead of like, 30 minutes before hand so I could actually attend said class.

Feels like I'm two sentences away from dropping the whole communist manifesto in my TxGov Professors inbox.

This was supposed to be an introduction "memo".

Good lord. Classes haven't even started and already I'm wanting to commit crimes over the stress I'm experiencing.

For the moment, the culprit most contributing to stress is textbooks :')

The landscape for textbooks is both better and worse than it was 4 years ago. The worst part of the worst is that they keep fucking updating textbooks so you have to buy the newest one (which honestly, isn't fucking new but ugh). I hard decided to get my rented E-textbooks from a particular place because #1 its on the cheap end of my available paid options and #2 - I'm p sure I can remove the DRM and throw them to people who can distribute. Because if I have to pay for this shit, I'm for sure going to keep it. Fuck renting. But also, if I buy it, if I can make it so even one person doesn't have to, thats a win in my book.

You want to talk about shit that radicalized you? This is one of those things for me. Fuck this bullshit.

Also, fuck the two textbooks I can ONLY buy from my goddamn school bookstore and NO WHERE else. >:[

@supermario commented on this post:
A big hearty agree: fuck textbooks, or at least their high prices. I don't know how viable it is, but maybe you can ask some previous students if they still have those two textbooks and if you could buy if from them for cheaper than new from the bookstore?

Man, I wish I knew former students, but the main problem would be the world and community still being very isolatory (which started way before covid, but that definitely exacerbated it). Though, with this in mind (i've already ripped the DRM off my ebooks lol), I definately want to find a discord for my college and try and distribute the books I have ripped, if I can. I have been brewing over this for a tiny bit of time, but what I'd like to do if it wouldn't cause trouble, would be to email everyone in my class and tell them I got them, heres the ePub lol. But alas.

I don't even know if my college has a discord, but I'm gonna try and find out.
