Public School Aesthetic

-Literally no one knowing the words to the fight song, despite it being played at every game

-That weird cheering thing at assemblies

-That one teacher known to set off the fire alarm/break windows

-Water fountains so gross, no one risks it

-“We’re running today” *everyone groans, except that one kid who cheers. That kid has no friends

-Those morning announcements that no one actually pays attention to

-KAHOOTS

-The music building is always freezing????

-More kids eat out of the vending machines than eat school lunch

-No salt in the cafeteria

-Bucher-paper posters that stay up the entire year because everyone’s too lazy to take them down, we get it, homecoming was 4 months ago, let it go

-Clubs with 2 people in them

-The periods before and after lunch: everyone is eating. Everyone.

-Not seeing certain AP students for weeks in May, when you do, they look dead

-Free periods

-Language teachers are always crazy

-School dances in the gym: no shoes allowed?

-When you walk into your least favorite class someone offers to mercy kill you

-Declining only because you have a test to study for next period

-“Remember that one day we got off because_(insert failing school facility)_?”

-When it first snows everyone rushes to the nearest window for the rest of class

-THE KID WHO DABS AT GRADUATION WHEN GETTING HIS DIPLOMA

Alright yall so as you may or may not know, me (admin it) and admin ash are in color guard meaning its band camp time. Ive gotten injured everyday for the past 3 days, two of those instances being semi serious. Wednesday I hit myself in the face with a rifle and had a knot on my cheek bone, nothing to serious. Thursday I wasnt drinking enough water and were literally sprinting most of our show and were in Texas so it’s in the blistering heat and pretty much I made it to the end of practice before I passed out and had to have someone help me inside and put up my stuff for me. Finally today I was doing a toss with my rifle which went right above my head and I threw it wrong so it came down and landed on my face and they made me sit out the rest of practice (i’ve been on concussion watch all day so I havent even been allowed to nap or anything).

please consider: nightvale public schools

- the ceilings drip with rain and blood from the animals that fall from the glow cloud
- the children are indoctrinated at an early age to believe that mountains don’t exist. when their parents try to sue the school, they are eaten and replacement parents are issued.
- the glow cloud’s child being the most popular kid in the entire building.
- school lunches are as flat as paper to ensure that no possibility of mountains belief occurs.
- quizzes are handed out at random points during the day, you’ll find students finishing a math test during p.e
- speaking of p.e, there are weekly drills to prepare the kids in case another fighter jet comes through the gym.
- volleyball, badminton and football are the official trinity of sports. sacrifices to players are mandatory, accepted between 8:50-8:55 a.m on wednesdays.
- nobody knows who the teachers are. when they do show up, they are quiet, teach quickly and run off, leaving piles of papers behind.
- the staff room is forbidden. shadows flicker when a student approaches the door.
- locker combos change weekly. sometimes kids spend hours trying to figure out what’s going on.
- the computer lab is cramped and filled with empty tupperware boxes. where did all these boxes come from? where are the computers? there is an assembly to explain that the board has no money for new computers and had to substitute with plastic boxes. “just pretend the box is a computer. the biggest one is the printer. remember that staff doesn’t accept invisible paper.”
- the library has librarians in training. you can sign up to be a part time librarian in the lobby. four dollars an hour, and half a soul for overtime.
- the office ladies mark everyone absent, send home letters and sniff disdainfully when parents ask why they’re marking children absent. “they just don’t seem to be here,” one said, looking straight at a child. “not there at all. i don’t see one child.”
- the weight room has weights made of grains of rice. the sculptures fall apart when touched.
- the custodians are reptiles who will devour anyone and anything in the halls after hours.
- band is held everyday before school. the lilting melodies of forgotten songs plague the halls. everyday someone goes to the door and begs them to stop. everyday the door opens and the person is dragged in. everyday, the band gets a new member.
- jazz band plays everyday after school. nobody bothers the jazz band. the jazz band is few in number. the jazz band is sacred.

Love you guys <3

I love the Tumblr Riverdale community. Unlike Instagram and Twitter, we relatively stay friendly. We’re small but powerful and the fandom keeps growing. We welcome each person with open arms unlike on other social media sites. I personally love how it’s not overly publicized. We band together and it’s amazing what we can do.   

It’s overall a better atmosphere and I’m glad to be a part of it.

MAJOR INFO FOR NEW MARCHING BAND KIDS

this has happened so many times and it’s ridiculous. BE. RESPECTFUL. TO THE BAND PARENTS. AND ALL OTHER BANDS.

IT DOESNT MATTER IF THEYRE THE RIVAL SCHOOL

OR IF YOU DONT PARTICULARLY LIKE THAT BAND PARENT

BE RESPECTFUL. THEY ARE PUTTING THEIR TIME AND EFFORT TO PUT ON A SHOW AND BE A PART OF THE BAND.

last year there was this band at our mass group that kept yelling and insulting another band because they were rivals. we have rival schools too. we have those band parents that aren’t amazing at their job. we have those band parents who are a bit picky with uniforms.

BE RESPECTFUL. PLEASE. YOUR BAND WILL BE SO MUCH BETTER AND YOULL ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE SO MUCH MORE.

So this picture of our band director is the whole marching band’s twitter profile and apparently he had to get onto us before a show because parents were getting ‘concerned’.

my biggest pet peeve ever is when you express a casual disliking towards something benign like a band, celebrity, or TV show, and a bunch of people hop in and hound on you as if you’ve besmirched the name of god himself

Disaster Area was a plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones and was generally regarded as not only the loudest rock band in the Galaxy, but also as being the loudest noise of any kind at all. Regular concert goers judged that the best sound balance was usually to be heard from within large concrete bunkers some thirty-seven miles away from the stage, whilst the musicians themselves played their instruments by remote control from within a heavily insulated spaceship which stayed in orbit around the planet - or more frequently around a completely different planet.”

“Their songs are on the whole very simple and mostly follow the familiar theme of boy-being meets girl-being beneath silvery moon, which then explodes for no adequately explored reason.”

“Many worlds have now banned their act altogether, sometimes for artistic reasons, but most commonly because the band’s public address system contravenes local strategic arms limitations treaties.”
