Every school should be like mine: four hours a day, three time slots you can attend (morning at 8, afternoon at 12, evening at 5), online classes in case you miss a day, english and math direct instruction, bus stop close by, you can graduate early if you want, you can switch time slots if you need to, and they respect if you have a mental disorder/want to be addressed by a different name or by diff pronouns. You can listen to music, too, and everyone is super chill. Small classes where everyone minds their own business and gets their work done. That is how school should be.
Heres an idea!
Go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn, and you lot are whining about “SCHOOLS UNFAIR CHANGE LESSON TIMES”
Alright buddy i’m gonna need you to sit the fuck down because i’m gonna lay some shit on you. I’m sure you had a great time in high school or college since you had the nerve to tell everybody to go to bed at a reasonable time. I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but maybe the reason why we don’t go to bed at a reasonable hour is because we can’t? WOW SHOCKING I KNOW.
Now I don’t know what high school was like for everyone else but for me it was fucking hell. During my senior year in high school i had over 3 hours worth of homework everyday. I get off school at 8 pm because of after school extra classes. I get home at around 9:30 and shower and it’s already 11. Well better do my homework if I want to pass this class!!! Time sure does fly when I do homework because wow it’s 3 am already. Time to finally sleep because wow humans need to sleep to have a healthy mind???? And then DING it’s 6am better wake up for school to start this routine all over again for the next 10 months. Over the span of my high school life I had over 10 emotional break downs and depression because of school. Shocking right? School can actually make some people sad and angry.
How the fuck would you feel if you were crammed in a classroom with over 40 students learning the same thing except you couldn’t understand shit so you had to study extra hard and spend more time on your homework than everyone else? Terrible right. Not everybody breezed thru school like you did.
School is different for everybody and everybody’s stress levels are different. Some schools give a fuck ton of homework while some don’t. Some people had fun in school and some didn’t. And I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but some people actually work after school. Wow students making a living to support their family that’s fucking crazy I didn’t even know that was possible. And don’t even get me started on AP students.
“Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn,” Are you seriously comparing us to our ancestors which we had nothing to do with? WHO GIVES A SHIT. DID THEY HAVE OVER 8 HOURS OF SCHOOL? NO. DID THEY HAVE THE STRESS OF NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR FUTURE? PROBABLY. BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE WORKED HARDER THAN THEM, WE HAVE A TOUGHER LIFE, ADULTS EXPECT US TO AMOUNT TO SOMETHING BUT WILL WE? WE DON’T KNOW. WE HAVE MORE STRESS ON OUR MINDS THAN A PSYCHOPATH WITH A MENTAL DISORDER. AND YET WE’RE STILL LIVING, BREATHING AND WORKING HARD SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT GOING TO BED AT A REASONABLE HOUR BECAUSE WE FUCKING CAN’T.
HOLY SHIT THANK YOU thank you SO MUCH //applause
ALSO DINOSAURS WERE LONG EXTINCT BEFORE HUMANS EXSISTED
30 Day Reading Challenge—Day 1: "The Best Book You’ve Read This Year"
I know I’m a little late to the game on this one (pun only partially intended), but by far the best book I’ve read this year is George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones, from his ‘A Song of Ice and Fire' series.
Where do I even begin with this thing? What do I say about this book that hasn’t already been said 50 times over? Honestly…I have no idea, but I love the crap out of this book anyway. Which, if anyone was wondering, I love the HBO tv series just as much. Have I gotten further in the TV show than the books? Yes. Have I purposefully watched the TV show before reading the books? Abso-fucking-lutely. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself over the years, it’s that if I read a book before seeing the film adaptation—whether it’s a movie or TV series—I’m always taking in the adaptation with a sharper critical eye. And I don’t like doing that. I like being able to enjoy both creations for what they are, and try to lessen the bias between the two as much as possible. Now, do I tend to still prefer the books over the movie or TV adaptation? Yes. But at least I can still enjoy the movie or TV adaptation instead of cringing at every little change from the original source material. Game of Thrones is no exception. If anything, especially with how ridiculous spoilers are for this series (which, honestly, played a major role in my decision to just watch the TV series first), I would highly recommend watching the TV series before tackling the books.
For the book itself, though, I really do adore it to pieces. Whether you find yourself supporting the Starks, Baratheons, or even the Lannisters (sometimes you’ve just got to hate to love them), I think there’s someone in A Game of Thrones for everybody. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a fondness for fantasy, adventure, politics…or just humanity in general. Just make sure to brace yourself and have a box of tissues ready—NO ONE is safe in this series. No one.
"When you play the game of thrones, you win…or you die. There is no middle ground."
So I saw this challenge pop up on my dash, and thought…why not? I love books, I love to read, and I like talking about the books I read. :)
Note: I’m leaving this particular post with JUST the challenge itself. That way, if anyone else feels inspired to do the thing, you’ll be able to reblog the post without what’s likely to be my ridiculously long ‘Day 1’ answer. XD
