current school

Hi! I don't know if you have already answered this, but what do you make of everyone's improbable ages, and how in many cases not only they don't make sense in a timeline, they don't even match the character's design?

It helps clear out one slot in the BSD Bingo.

Well, I don’t expect realism in this manga anymore. I think Asagiri just threw ages around, but then again, I’ve watched other series like Prince of Tennis where the main team can basically school current top pros and they’re in middle school still! So unless we get a retcon, which isn’t very likely at this point, we’ll have to accept that a lot of BSD characters have achieved a lot at an age where we’re still trying to learn how ATMs worked.

If anyone ever tries to tell you that you can’t put off a project until the last minute, I want you to tell them that not only have I started and finished an entire art project in 75 minutes, I once started a summative project the night before it was due and completed it in 3 hours, and got a 78… and I had three months to work on it.

If you’re gonna procrastinate, make sure you do it right.

Speaking of crochet, here are some of my recent projects! An afghan blanket for my mom, a little sun I made for my sister and me (I don’t have animal eyes rn, so I just used magic rings and yarn for eyes and mouth), and a teddy bear I freehanded w/no pattern (it came out okay, with a few mistakes but nothing major). Last project is a commission for my mom, I’m helping her decorate some gift boxes for her CCE (Catholic Sunday school) students.

Currently, I’m doing two more afghan blankets with complicated patterns and a stuffed octopus.

Learning crochet takes baby steps, but you slowly get better each time!

Are we talking about Ocs?? My current babe is named Ox. His dad is black and his mom is Hispanic and has long natural dreads he keeps in a pony tail with an undercut on the sides. He wears patterned shorts and mismatching tank tops 100% of the time, and is currently in school for business so he can have his own skateboard shop. He paints boards in his free time and hangs with his friends. ☺️

cute!!

Okay this is not mouse related but I just really need to talk about this because it’s so fucking wild and surreal

I am disabled and currently cannot attend school or work. I’m very fortunate to be able to live with my mom, who currently supports me in exchange for caring for our animals, driving her places, cooking meals, and paying bills, among other odd jobs.

As supportive as she is, she doesn’t fully understand that because of my disabilities I may never be able to have a “real” job, and she frequently says that I need to be doing something more productive with my time.

My therapist wanted me to talk with her again about this, and while doing so tonight during dinner, my mom specifically mentioned that I can’t “spend all day playing video games.” Mostly as a joke, I offhandedly remarked about the rise in popularity of lets-players on youtube and on twitch in the recent years.

Having little computer skills, she obviously didn’t know what a lets-player was, and so I explained the basics, showed her a few different channels, and found some annual earnings figures (stressing that almost nobody makes serious money doing this, and the ones that do are mostly just lucky and have also been building viewership for many years).

Surprisingly, she was very intrigued at the fact that people could potentially make a career out of filming themselves play games, and got very excited when I mentioned that I’d thought about trying to be a twitch streamer in the future when I could afford a mic and a faster internet connection.

Long story short… with literally no convincing on my part, she has decided to buy me whatever I need to get started on streaming. Literally whatever. I jokingly said I’d need to renovate our back room into a studio and sound-proof the walls and she was like, okay, how much do you think that will cost. I’m just. Blown away???? Is this real????????????????????

Family by Family, How School Segregation Still Happens
Decisions in a district in Upper Manhattan offer a look at a persistent problem in public education that, for now, is without a solution.
By Kate Taylor

“I think public school shaped me in a lot of ways — that I feel like I can relate and talk to and be with people who are different from me racially, economically, socially,” Ms. Shneyer said. “It was very valuable in that way.”

A look at the history of District 3, which stretches along the West Side of Manhattan from 59th to 122nd Street, shows how administrators’ decisions, combined with the choices of parents and the forces of gentrification, have shaped the current state of its schools, which, in one of the most politically liberal parts of a liberal city, remain sharply divided by race and income, and just as sharply divergent in their levels of academic achievement.

In 1984, two years before Ms. Shneyer started kindergarten, less than 8 percent of the district’s 12,321 elementary and middle school students were white. Not a single school was majority white, and the only school where white students made up the biggest group was P.S. 87 on West 78th Street. At the time, many white parents would not even consider their zoned schools. James Mazza, who served as deputy superintendent, and then superintendent of the district, from 1988 to 1997, recalled in an interview that parents would sometimes come into his office carrying a newspaper with the test scores of every school in the district and explain that they didn’t want to go to their zoned school because of its place on the list. Though scores are often used as a shorthand for quality, they correlate closely with the socioeconomic level of the children in a school.

“We tried to encourage people to make the decision about what school to attend based on more information than test-score results,” Mr. Mazza said, adding that that was often difficult. So the district pursued another strategy for attracting white, middle-class families: adding gifted classrooms, dual-language programs and schools that were open to all students from around the district.

Thanks to these options, more white families began sending their children to District 3 elementary and middle schools. Today, over a third of the roughly 14,000 elementary and middle school students in District 3 are white. But they are unevenly distributed. All but one of the zoned elementary schools below West 90th Street are now majority white. But because white parents elsewhere in the district take advantage of alternatives to their zoned schools, elementary schools in more ethnically diverse neighborhoods, like Manhattan Valley and Morningside Heights, remain largely black and Hispanic, and poor. Their test scores trail those of the district’s mostly white schools, and as the neighborhoods gentrify, their enrollment is declining.

Hey guys, I honestly can’t believe I’m in a position to make this kind of post but this is where we are.

This is an old friend of mine I knew growing up. That black and white photo is a picture of the two of us all the way back in kindergarten, happy as clams on our way to a girl scout meeting. When I knew her she was always very sweet and quiet, but also had the best sense of humor and was incredibly talented. We were good friends in grade school, and played basketball together later on in middle school. Later on, I was best friends with her neighbor as well. I haven’t seen her in years, despite attending the same college, but she is a huge part of who I was growing up.

Her name is Mary Carmen Nichols. She’s 19 years old and lives in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. She currently attends school in downtown Birmingham. Earlier this morning, her parents found her missing from her home. Both her cell phone and her car were still there. I’ve known her and her family for a very long time and they are all incredibly wonderful people. She would never just run away, not like this. If you have any information to offer, please please please call the number from the article.

Even if you don’t know her or you don’t live in the area, I’m begging you to please signal boost this. Please.

KIND OF AN EMERGENCY POST, TW FOR CONVERSION THERAPY, MENTIONS OF SUICIDE
hey guys, my name is alexander terris. i came out as a transgender boy to my parents around a year and a half ago. while they initially seemed accepting, i found out that they had told various therapists i was delusional. when they told me i was going to see a gender therapist, i was initially overjoyed, thinking this might mean they were considering letting me transition, until i decided to look her up. pictured above are screenshots from articles on her, the last article being from a project she was involved with (the feminine boy project). unless there has been a severe misunderstanding, they are sending me to see a conversation therapist the first week of april (i am typing this march 12th). i am currently on a school field trip, discovered this less than an hour ago, and am terrified of going home. ive texted my mom confronting her about it but she hasn’t replied. if i stop posting on here for an extended period of time, it either means ive had my phone taken away or committed suicide, or both. please reblog this and try to remember me as a boy and not a girl. please, dont let them get away with this.

he was the cliché bad boy. he was the guy you couldn’t stand. he was the handsome, hot kid who made girls go weak in the knees. he was a brat. you had never liked him one bit, but you had also never gotten involved with anything concerning him. until one day, when you were in the wrong place, at the wrong time.
