About to go absolutely batshit on the fucking endermen screwing around in my house.
college is a fucking scam lmao (in the USA at least)
i have students who got 50s on an open notebook exam where the average is an 80 and students who got 30s on a report with an average of 60 and the professor said she was going to pass them all, even when it's obvious from their assignments that they have 0 clue what's going on and don't care to actually understand
what's even the point then? why even make students go to class? just tell them to hand over $60,000 and give them the degree instead of letting up continuously fail upwards
it dilutes the value of degrees, especially for students who know their stuff and actually try in class. like that's why they say undergraduate degrees are worthless when it comes to getting a job, because employers know unqualified graduates are everywhere. now you have to waste even more money on a master's or a phd, which is more $$$ in the colleges' pockets and more time that students have to waste away in schools.
and when does a master's degree also become worthless? when will every student have to do a phd and stay in school from age 4 to age 28 just so employers won't throw their resumes in the trash?
education is fucked
and like... what is this teaching the students? they're not stupid, they'll realize they won't have to do any work in order to succeed (and the TAs will be stuck wasting time grading them and giving them feedback that they won't take). they'll also think that they know what's going on, when in reality, they seriously don't and would be woefully unprepared for employment.
Oh my god. My child is incredible. Please look at her.

Ripped down an Autism Speaks donation poster today.
Because fuck em. That's why.
@UnidentifiedBlog aaaaa I looked it up and now I want to read it so bad??? bookmarked and I'll def. have to see if I can get my hands on a copy!!fungus
aaa i love my side of the mountain i read it when i was much younger and UGH the dream.......
It's actually a trilogy!
I've read the first one sooo many times though and I always end up having daydreams about living in his tree-house for the next few months lol.
Anyone who dreams of living alone in the wilderness should really look into this one
i didnt know there were 3, i really wasn't a fan of the second one (it felt like the energy of the end of it but an entire book, and i didnt like the end's energy bc it was a disruption of the idillyc environment of most of the story)
Dude I lose my whole mind when I was a child explicitly because I read Frightful's Mountain. I fucking forgot that series existed and now thinking back on things, this trilogy was what fueled my dream to be a falconer and kicked off my hyper fixation with birds (that thrives even today).
The books are so fucking good. Also be sure to look into Jean Craighead George's other books too, like Julie of the Wolves. She was legit shit my favorite author as a child, hands down. I need to reread them, admittedly, as an adult, but when I was a child, I adore them.
ohhhhh my GODDDDD julie of the WOLVES i forgot it was the same author i fucking loved that book i didnt bring it to school w me :( but i have a copy of it at home that i've been thinking vaguely abt rereading for years i should snag it over spring br8k
Not all character development is positive. Characters can, and in my opinion, should, develop both negative and positive traits throughout the course of their story. As the story goes, they shouldn’t be perfected, they’re people, not artpieces, and so there shouldn’t be a stage where they’ve improved/changed exclusively for the better, to the point where they have no negative traits at all.
