I wrote an essay to convince my teacher to let us watch Lilo and Stitch in class.
A few weeks ago in my math class everyone was really tired. So someone suggested we watched a movie instead of
doing work that day. Then I immediately said that we should watch Lilo and Stitch (because why
not). For the most part everyone in class agreed with me. But my teacher
wasn’t buying that I was being dead serious about wanting to watch it. So he
said as a joke that if came to school the next day and had written an essay on
how Lilo and Stitch relates to math he would consider letting us watch it in
class. I told him that if he wanted a paper, a paper he was going to get. But he
still didn’t believe me. The next day I walk into class with this paper.
It didn’t work. We still haven’t watched Lilo and Stitch. I’m still salty.
so can i just say that i don’t think zach deserved to have a tape about him. it’s my opinion, sorry if you don’t agree. but he was nice to her and was there for her because he understood that marcus was being a dick to her. and he tried to sit with her, but hannah thought he was trying to get with her or whatever. so basically, i just think zach is actually such a sweetheart and needs to be loved akksfhja.
I know that I kind of already talked about this in my overrated first year advice post but I seriously want to put this message out there again.
You do not need to get all As on every assignment for every class.
I don’t even know how that would be possible, without putting yourself under unbelievable amounts of stress.
I see these posts specifically targeted at high school students, which is even more problematic in my mind. High school should not be a time when you study for hours every day without doing much else. High school isn’t all about resume building, but also about having fun and making friends and good memories. There are a few reasons that I specifically think this idea is bad:
Universities don’t necessarily require you to have all As. A lot of universities don’t even look at your grades until certain years, or only look at certain classes. If you’re in grade 9, you should focus on building study skills while having fun, rather than living to make all As. Also, showing that you got a bad mark in grade 11 and then bumped it up to a much better one in grade 12 looks great on an application just as much as all As does.
If you are aiming for extremely prestigious schools, you need more than grades. If making straight As is your goal because you want to go to Harvard, you also need to have some extra-curriculars and other things on your resume. I don’t know how many stories I’ve read over the years of people who had a 4.0 and didn’t get in because all they did was school, while others will a 3.5 got in based on their amazing resume.
Telling students that they should not settle for anything less than an A tells them that studying needs to be their top priority always. When I was in high school (even grade 9), one of my main priorities was work. Other people want to focus on sports, that they probably won’t be able to play in university. Some people need to focus on hobbies that cultivate their mind and make them happy, rather than putting so much pressure to get all As. I think it is a very privileged viewpoint, in a way, to say that school needs to come before anything else. Only certain people can afford to think that way.
If you settle for nothing less than all As in high school, university might hit you like a ton of bricks. I don’t know very many people who got all As in their first semester of uni. I don’t know anyone who got all As on all of their assignments. I know some people who didn’t get a single A. At my school, when you hand in an essay, an A means it is perfect and has absolutely no flaws to speak of, so your chances of getting an A are no so high in first year. I had on TA who refused to give out As on any assignment. If your assignment was perfect, you got an 80, which is a B.
Very literally, a C is average. It is the middle of the range of marks you can get. A is not average.
I am in no way telling high school students or students in general that they shouldn’t strive for good marks. Or that they shouldn’t consider their education as a gift, and work hard for it. And I understand that for some kids, their parents tell them that they need to get all As and are under immense pressure at home to do so. But telling people that anything less than an A is unacceptable and that their top priority in life should be making straight As all the time, to no end? I do not support that.
Summary: Reader is a licensed private investigator for the family’s business upon graduating high school early. Having been sent to Riverdale to trail the high school music teacher Geraldine Grundy, Reader has to ensure her reason of being in Riverdale is secret especially with the sensitivity of the town. Hard to do when Jughead Jones calls her career the minute they converse.
Characters: Reader x unknown pairing, Jughead Jones Alice Cooper, Betty Cooper, Archie Andrews (mentioned), Geraldine Grundy (mentioned), Hal Cooper (mentioned), and Polly Cooper (mentioned).
Disclaimer: I do not own Riverdale or the characters.
Warnings: Swearing, rude!Betty Cooper, Grundy-Archie affair, and lying.
Tagging: At the bottom.
A/N: When Grundy explained why she changed her name…I called bullshit. That pervy cougar has more than an abusive ex and I know it. Especially with her cougar eyes looking at those teenagers before she fled.
It was summer when you were walking around town while hiding from everyone, you worked for your dad. You didn’t live in the town but you were an extremely young private investigator. At seventeen you had gotten your license after graduating high school a year early and joined the family business. Getting off topic here but your Dad had sent you to Riverdale for one of his customers.
You had your normal phone along with possibly sixty burner phones hidden under a loose floorboard in your motel room. They were critical in your line of business if you didn’t want to be tracked by the police.
You were hiding behind a unkempt building that seemed to be ignored by the town of Riverdale. You watched at the pastel mint green classic Volkswagen beetle slowly moved passed a construction sight. Inside of the person of interest with sunglasses on hiding her disgusting teenage boy preying eyes while seductively biting a straw.
Summary: Dan has always been a goody-two-shoes wallflower. He’s never
gone out of his comfort zone once in his life, always living in his happy world
bubble. Phil is a realist, a punk with an agenda, never one to settle down.
When these two troubled souls finally collide, their lives just might change

A/N: Hey phamalam! I’ve come up with
a new fic idea that’s been bubbling in my head for quite sometime now, and I’m
finally ready to post the intro. I hope this is enjoyable, this is the kind of
stuff I love to write, and because I’m better at it than third person, this
will be a first person story, going to diff perspectives of dnp. Please let me know what you think by liking, reblogging, and feedback! :) (also, this is pretty short bc it’s only the intro! future chapters will be longer!)
Chapter Summary: Jensen is new at school and the reader is assigned to show him around.
Characters: Jensen x Reader, Jared
Warnings: Jared is gay in this story. (So if that offends you then don’t read this. It’s an AU and my story so in this story Jared is gay)
A/N: So this is a new story based on inspiration from myself and @boredoutofmymindwriting This chapter is mild in warnings but probably in the next few chapters it gets intense. This story will have mentions of child abuse (It won’t go into a lot of detail just mentions of past abuse) so if that’s not your cup of tea then this story is probably not for you. I hope you guys enjoy this story! :)

Jensen walked into the counselor’s office on his first day of school. Mr. Walker the counselor greeted him with a smile on his face.
“You must be our new student. Mr. Ackles if I’m correct?” Jensen nodded smiling back.
“Yup that’s me.” Mr. Walker handed Jensen a piece of paper that was warm assuming that it was hot off the press.
“This is your schedule. You may leave the campus for lunch but you must be back in time for your next class.” As Mr. Walker was talking a you who looked to be a junior as well walked in. You had Y/H/C and it rested at the middle of your back. “There she is. This is one of our star students Y/N.”
“Sorry I’m late. And it’s Y/N/N. I hate my first name.” You said before extending a hand out, Jensen shaking it. “Let’s get started.” Jensen smiled at you and nodded. You walked Jensen out of the counselor’s office.
“Can we stop by my locker?” Jensen asked you and you nodded.
“Sure, but don’t take too long. We have to cover your whole schedule before first period. What’s your locker number?” Jensen looked down at his schedule not memorizing anything yet.
It boggles my mind that people still honestly believe Ryan harbors a grudge against Troy for “stealing” the lead role in the winter musical from him. Canon has more than proved otherwise on multiple occasions. In many instances, Ryan is not only fully supportive of Troy, he’s the only person who is.
Quite a stark contrast to the popular fandom (mis)conception that these two want and have nothing to do with each other, eh?
