ENTP: overall a good student but they go out every Friday night to drink away their pain and get wasted – regrets it each week but will not stop until they feel like their life is going somewhere, never takes anyone’s advice
ESTP: they don’t look as dead inside but they’re the deadest inside, probably only passing their math classes because they make their friend tutor them once in a while, they act stupid but they really arent tho
ENFP: Asks all their friends to teach them things because they feel like asking the teachers will make them look bad, most likely to openly have a mental breakdown during class every other week, will get far in life if they stopped procrastinating
ESFP: They were getting ready for this since freshman year of highschool. They were preparing themselves. They truly, honestly were. But somewhere along the way, they lost it. What did they lose? yes.
ENTJ: mastered the superiority complex face four years ago and somehow they just keep improving it, gets through their classes easily, thinks college is chill (actually not haha psyche that’s what they want you to think)
ENFJ: Started to consider dropping out of college back in high school, probably more interested in the fine arts classes, lowkey scares everyone but they dont realise it and they get genuinely surprised when people tell them that they’re kinda scary
ESFJ: They used to be one of the top students in high school but they became a little better than mediocre in college due to stress stress stress, really self conscious, poor thing pls show them warmth in this cold cruel world
ESTJ: Often seen as the leaders during those dreadful, wrenched group projects and their group almost always gets the highest score. Wants to become a dictator but those weren’t the options
INTP: They treat college like highschool, but like a really hardcore highschool. Sure, they can get the studying done easily and (somehow) get pretty good grades but everything else is like climbing Mt. Everest. “Okay but how do you expect me to go out there and–and BUY things?? Why did they think leaving me alone was a good idea. I’m so malnourished”
INTJ: mental breakdowns every other day that last like ten minutes, sits in the front of the classroom, sort of a teacher’s pet but not in the obnoxious way yknow man they just wanna get through life successfully
ISFP: Average by day, dreamer by night. They’re doing fine so far but whenever they have free time, they plan on how to escape from civilisation and build a cabin in the middle of the woods in Alaskan wilderness. Stress free and hey! no diploma necessary
ISTJ: they sit in the middle of the classroom and aren’t really seen studying (ever) but somehow pass with a grade that’s better than half of the class, they’ll go days without shopping and binge shop whenever they do
ISTP: Only raises their hand whenever they come up with a smartass comment to piss off the teachers but the teachers cant get rid of them because other than that they’re [ISTP] actually good students, goes on backpacking trips during free weekends to get away from everyone
INFP: Probably failed their first year because they really, genuinely, had no idea what the shit they were doing, needs to be reminded of what to do next all the time, intelligent but lazy
INFJ: The really approachable one who probably wants to be a biology teacher and everyone loves them as a student teacher. Reeaallly popular but not in a bad way and they probably have sparkles trailing behind them wherever they go
ISFJ: Nobody knows who they are, never raises their hand during class, always tired even though they get more sleep than the average college student, puts in the most effort and gets along fine but not socially
sally jackson is a phenomenal mother but she does a fucking lot more than bake cookies okay
this woman lost her family when she was five
this woman grew up being neglected
and then proceeded to drop out of high school to take care of the man who neglected her
and then she raised a fucking baby entirely on her own, with no family at all
a baby that had a death warrant on his head since the day he was conceived, no less
she had nothing and she worked her ass off to make a good life for her son, and she did a fucking good job of it
and then she spent years in an abusive relationship all while continuing to work her ass off and make a good life for her son, despite being verbally and physically abused about everything she did
and then she fucking got herself out of that abusive relationship, and there is nothing fucking cute about sally jackson feeling so desperate and afraid of her abuser that her only way out was to kill him okay
and then she uses her new money to get a new apartment for herself
and then she fucking saved up enough to fulfill her lifelong dream of going to college to become a writer
and she still routinely has to let her son risk his life to save the world because she knows it wouldn’t be fair of her to try and beg him not to, it’s part of who he is and she knows she needs to respect that, so instead of guilting him and giving him ultimatums, she fucking gives him her blessing
do you know how fucking hard that must be for her though? and do you ever hear her guilt him or take it out on him? n e v e r
so like fuck yeah she’s kind and beautiful and loving but she aint soft and sweet this woman is tough as fucking nails, she’s strong, she gets fucked over and over again and she still never gives up
she pulled herself out of tons and tons of extremely tedious and difficult situations even when literally all the odds were stacked against her
percy even says that there’s steel in her, that she has a rebellious streak that’s just like him
and like i really don’t wanna ever hear anyone forgetting this part of her ever again
so next time you talk about her baking cookies remember that she’s also an orphan who grew up in an abusive household, dropped out of highschool, became a single mother, survived an abusive marriage, and worked her ass off to get herself to where she is today
Like, when I saw Tony offer Peter the world at the new Headquarters, all I could think is this is a product of Tony’s fucked up childhood and I was floored.
Consider this: Tony, his whole childhood, pushes for greater and greater successes, building circuit boards and engines and robots, until, at an incredibly young age, he is accepted into one of the best universities for his craft in the world. Age was not an obstacle; skill was, although age was undoubtedly an obstacle once Tony achieved that level, I doubt he sees it that way.
And for Tony, that was perfectly normal. He was smart so his parents skipped him up grades, sent him to fancy boarding schools, and, finally, sent him to college at an incredibly young age. No one said boo.
Now, going to college that young is a perilous task, although nowhere near as perilous as, you know, actually fighting evil. But Peter has achieved the skill level required, and bam, age aside, he’s in. That would be the logic in this situation; it’s not about age, it’s about achievement. There’s an achievement-based goal and the idea is to meet that goal as soon as possible.
Peter wants to drop out of high school to fight crime because he’s beyond the life of a high schooler, in his mind. Ned is the voice of “what the fuck Peter” reason on this (everyone else would have been too, of course, if they had known). Tony is in the same boat as Peter, though. Why do the normal thing if you have achieved beyond that? I doubt the non-explicit benefits of high school would register to Tony. He’d be like, this kid is smart, he’s skilled, he does not need what that place sells, he’s ready for this.
(Of course, why Pepper and Happy were not explaining this to Tony, I don’t know. Maybe Pepper doesn’t know how young Peter actually is, and Happy just kind of…always indulges Tony).
And then Peter, as the culmination of a coming of age journey, decides that, actually, he is a kid, and he’s an amazing kid, but a kid nonetheless. High school and friends and opportunities are important, so thanks, but he’ll stick to Queens and Midtown Science and Engineering for now.
And I’d also like to give credit for Tony who probably doesn’t fully understand this, does realize it’s a mature choice in that Peter is taking care of himself, good on him. And when Peter turns back and is like “this was a test, right? I learned the right lesson here, right?” Tony immediately says “Yup, right kid, you are absolutely right no problem good job” and doesn’t taint Peter’s decision in any way.
Anyways there’s a million places in this movie where it’s explicit and implicit that Tony does, in many ways, see Peter as a younger version of himself, and him as, in some ways, being in Howard’s position. Howard sent Tony to the sharks without a thought. Tony, in all fairness, was totally ready to do the same, but when Peter said “actually no,” Tony totally respected that.
If you had to drop out of high school for mental health reasons, physical health reasons, or to raise a child, do not listen to all this BS negative stigma around being a high school drop out. It can be a scary decision, and I am so proud of you for taking care of yourself. You are strong, and you are appreciated.
thank you, sir. we were worried you’d search us and discover Akira’s dubious pain medications and realistic model gun collection.
uh, what was that?
nothing, sir. just telling dumb jokes. we don’t want to waste time in your, um, busy day of serving the public.
but don’t you always say the police are nothing but a bunch of insecure high school drop outs that want to use total strangers and a loaded gun to live out their power fantasies because the only thing they were ever any good at was being under qualified at everything except for murdering innocent minorities?
A new working paper puts some numbers to that question.
Having just one black teacher in third, fourth or fifth grade reduced low-income black boys’ probability of dropping out of high school by 39 percent, the study found.
And by high school, African-American students, both boys and girls, who had one African-American teacher had much stronger expectations of going to college. Keep in mind, this effect was observed seven to ten years after the experience of having just one black teacher.
It’s just after one in the afternoon and you’re cutting the crust from a peanut butter sandwich. “Liam, you want jelly on yours?”
You son looks up from up his sea of building blocks with a grimace on his face. “No!”
“Alright, no jelly,” you confirm. His cheeks are pink, hair stuck to his forehead. The air conditioning broke two days ago and Sam promised to have one of his guys come by to look at it by tonight. “You look hot buddy, why don’t you come in here.”
you know, I’m always saying how you shouldn’t move in together too young or too soon, but I actually think that Isak and Even moving in together fits Isak’s narrative quite beautifully? and like, I know i’m trash who could easily come up with at least ten reasons to justify them dropping out of high school to become organic farmers if need be (look at them and tell me their love wouldn’t water the crops), but after the way season 3 ended, this just feels so right?
who knows if it will feel right tomorrow or next month, but that doesn’t matter because life is now. to me this doesn’t feel rushed, it doesn’t feel like a rash decision. quite the opposite, really. it feels in line with Isak’s realisation of life being now. sure they could wait and see a year or two until they’re older and no longer in the honeymoon phase, but during that time we might all get killed in some cosmic explosion and then the chance to experience how it feels like to wake up next to each other every morning rain or shine will be forever lost.
moving in together with your significant other is a major step. it’s not the same as shared housing. i’ve done both, more than once, and they’re not the same thing. it’s dirty dishes in the sink. it’s compromise. it’s disillusionment. it’s amazing and wonderful and exciting and comfortable, but sometimes it’s also boring and mundane and annoying. and even though it’s not something I would normally recommend a teenager do after just a few months of dating, I’m honestly so happy and so thrilled that Isak made that choice, because to me it’s a sign that his little speech about life being now was not just pretty words. he’s practicing what he preached, and it looks real good on him. he was positively glowing sitting on Even’s lap, so present in the moment, so present with his friends, caressed by the first sunrays of spring about to bloom, and seeing him that way, it just felt so right. life is now. if it feels right, let it.
I headcanon Lance as bi. I also sort of self project the way I grew up and how my family is/was on him too…? Anyways, more langst
-Lance never thought it was weird that he was attracted to both genders until he was 11
-He first told his mom and she told him it was just a phase
-His older siblings laughed and teased him for it, calling him many slurs
-Slowly he grew to hate himself for being attracted to men and started to become more and more homophobic
- When he was 13, he met a boy in the summer who was gay
-He dated said boy in secret while denying who he was all the while
-His younger sister caught him with the boy and told their parents
-Lance never thought he’d ever see his mom so disgusted with him
-At the same time, he never thought his Dad who seemed the least accepting, would accept him and try to help him
-Lance started to realize as he got older that no men wanted to date him because he was bi
-So he thought it’d be easier to pass as hetro, though by now he was no longer homophobic but was trying to help out in LGBT community
-Lance’s older siblings started to become more understanding of the LGBT community and was no longer homophobic
-His mom understood but didn’t except that he was bi. Instead she’d talk about how it was a phase in his life
-He knew deep down that she’s never accept him
-Growing up, Lance was a middle child
-He never really got new clothes, being able to have hand-me-downs from his older siblings
-But his younger siblings got new clothes as by the time he was down with his, they were outdated
-He tries not to think too much about the times he’d get locked out after walking around late
-It wasn’t their fault, they just didn’t notice he was gone
-When his anxiety was starting to get bad, he had to hide it because his family rejected the idea that anyone could have a mental illness in their family
-He learned how to cry silently early in his life, so it was no surprise that no one knew when he was having an anxiety attack
-His self esteem issues started pretty early in his life
-His older siblings, one was a genius and the other was a troublemaker
-Whatever he did was average in his eyes and only his friends congratulated him
-It would never feel as good as it would’ve been coming from his parents
-When he’d get into trouble or hang around a “dangerous” crowd, his parents didn’t seem to care too much
-His “dangerous” crowd was pretty much just his group of friends which consisted of an addict, an alcoholic, a pot head, a kid who came from a rough home and two high school drop outs who dealt with mental illness, and the other poverty
-Some of his friends knew gang members but it wasn’t an issue because they’d never bring them around
-When Lance got an 89% on an exam, they threw him a little party on the beach by a campfire
-They’d all celebrate each other’s success and Lance started to call them family
-Lance’s siblings always forgot he was with them when they’d tell a story, or they’d replace him with a different sibling
-His own mom and dad started to do that as well
-He started to feel like he was replaceable and forgettable
-He started to fall into depression around the time he was 12, though he never realized it was depression until he was 15
-He started self harming when he 11, a little bit after he came out
-At first it was anger, he felt like he deserved to be treated like crap
-It soon turned ugly as he started to notice more and more things he wasn’t good at and traits that were displeasing
-When he was 15-16, his friends noticed the scars he carefully kept hidden and they tried so hard to help him
-Lance learned that he didn’t want their help as it felt more like pity which only fed into his self-loathing
-When Lance was 16, his friend who was an alcoholic died by drowning in his own puke
-Lance didn’t take it well and couldn’t handle it, so he repressed those memories
-He never remembered until he was in his 20’s and woke up sobbing and shaking(it wasn’t pretty, it was horrible and he could shake the imagines out of his mind for weeks)
-When Lance got accepted to the garrison, his friends threw him a party
-At the same time, he never told his family until two days before he was leaving
-They thought it was just a boarding school and didn’t realize how much he worked for it until after he left and they looked into it
-Lance tried to hold back tears after the first month he was at the garrison and he still hadn’t gotten a call from his parents or siblings
-He didn’t hold himself as he thought of his friends and the fire they had
-He didn’t think of how his parents practically jumped around when his older brother got accepted into university
-He didn’t compare himself to everyone he knew and only focus on his bad points
-He didn’t have an anxiety attack that night
-When Lance met Hunk, he felt relived because finally in his life, he met someone who didn’t know his family
-Because finally he had a friend who saw him and didn’t know of or about his family
-And when he met Pidge, he was ecstatic to meet someone who was so smart and chill
-It didn’t hurt him at all when they kept avoiding him though
-It didn’t remind him of being overshadowed when his teachers started to compare him and tell him he was there only by luck
-It didn’t hurt when he was taken as a joke by his self proclaimed rival because it reminded him of his siblings
-No, it didn’t hurt at all when he realized he really didn’t belong with the other paladins
-And it certainly didn’t hurt when his hero got mad at him for making a valid point
-Of course that didn’t make him start to doubt himself more than he already did
-No, Lance never thought of how much he hated himself or how he wasn’t good enough
-Not even about how he missed his family, when he was stuck out in space
-Or his friends, who’d usually try to cheer him up by taking him out to eat or play games all night
-Definitely not about how he wished he was a better person, never really seeing what an amazing person he was but the only what he saw of himself
-No, Lance was fine
what if an Alien race started gathering information on us because they were curious, but slowly became terrified because of our lifestyles? We eat a lot of poisonous food and such, and we travel places that could easily kill us.
heck, we even exploded radioactive bombs in space just to see what happened! imagine if an alien kept a log about what it discovered about humans over time, and how they reacted.
Humans should be closely watched as an enemy, as they have developed ways to send radiation at high rates in space. Though they have not been able to send their own kind past the fourth planet from their own, and have built a station on the planet Mealincan. They seem eager to leave their planet, though they do not have sufficient equipment to do so successfully. We have still not been able to send one of our own down to their surface for further surveillance, due to their harsh atmosphere. We are hoping we can catch one already in space and question them about life on their planet.
We have captured a human, one who refers to themselves as a “Proud, conservative, American.” We plan to question it about what sub-race “American” is. So far we have questioned him about his planet’s geography, but it was not very helpful, it told us it “Dropped out of high school” When it was “15”. we will question it further about what high school is, how high up it is, and what it has to do with education, as well as what “15” means.
We questioned why it was up into space, and it told us that it’s “Government” was sending it to work on growing plants on Mealincan. The humans are planning to colonize Mealincan should their planet fail them. Humans are strange creatures, trying to leave their planet before they have the technology.
We have had success! We captured another human, one who seems to know more about the science and geology. The other human, who we have learned is called “Berny” and is of the gender Male, it still on the station with us, and we have been using him to observe how human sub-class American works. We intend on using the other human for research as well.
Humans are without sanity! They eat poisonous foods such as honey, rhubarb, Puffer fish, caster oil (One bean kills a human, four kills a horse), raw almonds, nutmeg, kidney beans, and raw cashews, for fun. They actually enjoy eating these poisonous foods, as well as a few radioactive foods such as a “banana”. The new human, called “Doctor Cho” explained as well how they live, and where! They live in places that could kill them at any moment, with wild life that could kill them easily. They even challenge themselves by traveling to one of the most dangerous places, called “Australia.” for fun!! I highly recommend we try and make allies with them before they can become our enemies, they sound as if they could kill us with ease.
