2 people were arrested for drugs at Daniel Morgan today. Puts my bad day in perspective.
Trusting people is becoming hard
Keeping my grades up is becoming hard
Feeling pretty is becoming hard
Thinking happy thoughts is becoming hard
Doing work is becoming hard
Maintaining a friendship is becoming hard
Doing everything is becoming hard and I don’t like it
The fact that every one of my friends has reblogged this speaks to the inherent flaws in America’s education system.
Mr. Townson's Top Thirty
This post needs updating- the structure of the exam changed - there is now only one long essay not two and there are now several short answers. p>fakingtranquility:paliapusteacher working on it. I am but a mere high school student who took APUSH last year.
Mr. Townson, the wonderful APUSH god who has a history of 100% pass rates, has given the gospel of APUSH to his people. Here are Townson’s top 30 things that will certainly be on the test (some of these are more than one thing, but they’re related topics), followed by his top picks for what the…
- 1st period: turned in sub-par work
- 2nd period: girl threatened to fight me for looking at her, so I gave her the finger
- 3rd & 4th periods: did 1 worksheet, then sat quietly for more than an hour
- 5th period: teacher told other students that I won homecoming, I got picked on because "the only way [I'd] ever win homecoming queen is at the blind school 'cause nobody can see [me]."
- 6th period: lab partner STILL DIDN'T SEND ME HER HALF OF THE DATA!
- 7th period: dumb girl asks why Herman Cain isn't running for governor again this year to replace Nikki Hayley. (So much is confusing about this question, google it you don't know the context.)
- THIS IS WHERE YOUR TAXES GO! BE ASHAMED!
- The kid who said stuff about me being homecoming queen really upset me. I was really happy and proud up until that moment. Now it feels like crap when it had felt special.
"High school is memorizing facts that you’ll forget in two days for a test on information that probably will not affect your job in ten years. It’s sobbing and screaming because you’re just too stressed. It’s finding out who you are - within the school guidelines and social norms. It’s doing 28 hours of work and activities in only 24 hours. It’s drinking coffee every day because there just isn’t enough time for eight hours of sleep. It’s learning how to factor when you could be learning how to do taxes. It’s breaking your back with a backpack full of textbooks. It’s going to school and sitting there for eight hours only to go back home and do three more hours of work. It’s taking what is claimed to be the best four years of your life and turning it into a living hell. It’s crying in the hallway during finals week. High school is leaving you clueless when asked a non-academic question, because there is no study guide for life."
There is no higher power (than the registrar)
Don’t forget, kids: grades determine all of your worth in life. You’ll never amount to anything without sacrificing your soul for your GPA.
"I would’ve voted for Herman Cain for governor, but he was running against Obama so…"
