I hear my mom shrieking downstairs, shouting up to me about “THE CATS! THE CATS!”
I run downstairs, thinking someone has died or something and see THIS:
I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO PUNCH SOMETHING TO GET OVER THE ADORABLENESS
They look like they’re about to break out in a musical number
i think what i dislike so much about school there’s this shove-down-your-throat emphasis on exams, and grades, and coursework, to the point where (as a person who enjoys learning) i don’t enjoy what i’m being taught. to the point where it can make me mentally unwell, and there’s really something fucking wrong about that.
THIS IS SO FUCKING ACCURATE. TOO ACCURATE FOR WORDS.
Trust me, as a teacher we really hate this too.
Like, we go into this wanting to promote learning, inspire you to want to learn and enjoy the subject as much as we do, maybe inspire you with our passion for the subject.
Then the government/education ministers are like nope, exams are the way to go. A-C grades are what matters. Justifying it by saying it’s the only way parents and society know how their kids are doing. Don’t make me laugh…and then cry hysterically.
- don’t eat less, eat right
- don’t hold it in, it’s okay to cry
- don’t hurt yourself, there is always an alternative
- don’t shut yourself away, speak up
- don’t be your own bully, be your own hero
- don’t give up, because you’re worth so much more than you think
Thank you for this post
