awesome people i admire

Normally I don’t rant but...

I tend to not get all crazy and rant about anything online but I need to this time. I have been tutoring this lovely international student all semester on Northern Renaissance ARH. I won’t disclose where she is from but it a very different culture than my own and she is doing a masters in a second language (which is awesome, I admire people who do that)

SO, my annoyance… Her professor has no regard for the fact that she may not understand all the complex vocabulary that haughty scholarship loves to use to sound more intelligent than the rest. 

Look, if an international student comes to you asking for help DO NOT EXPLAIN IT THE SAME WAY AS THE BOOK WITH EVEN MORE DIFFICULT VOCABULARY. If the student is struggling to understand, throwing in more flashy words isn’t going to help. Why can’t you explain it clearly and simply so someone without the vast vocabulary that you apparently think you possess can understand????

This student is bright and eager to learn and the only obstacle is coming from another country and studying in another language and yet the professor thinks using words that most native students don’t get will help…

Maybe I am being irrational but this really irks me. This is why I started this blog, to share interesting things in a fun and easy way… I am getting really fed up with snotty “scholars” locking themselves in ivory towers and looking down on the rest and then wondering why no one wants to help them save the arts.


Ok, done. Go about your business. 

anonymous asked:

Any mun's mun is crushing on?

Ehm, uhm, ehm…. You have odd questions, anon. But okay. Short disclaimer: In this context crush will mean admiration. Basically people I find really awesome, be it in their writing style, their personality and well, the fact that I hold them very close.

Now that I think about it, there is only person that totally fits that bill straight away.

And that’s Ace. (@mylittlecuriosityrp, @herfrigidmajesty, @thelastshadhavar, @trigger-happy-draculina)

Oh, god this is so awkward! Can I hide behind the freaking trash can or somewhere? Ace, please don’t take this the wrong way!

Yeah, that’s the one Mun I admire very much.

Other people include @mr-henry-lascelles, @themadandthebroken and to some extent @hermionebrightestwitchgranger.

Hi guys!! I can’t believe that it was a little over 3 months ago that I decided to make this blog. I’ve recently gained 1K+ followers and each one of you means a lot to me. I wanted to make this FF to show my appreciation to all the awesome and talented people that I follow. I admire you guys and thank you for filling my dash with your creative graphics and your interesting rants :-P! I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone and sorry if I misspelled any names.
