there are sooo many more! those are just the ones i have in my itunes!

also side note: he may very possibly like other songs from any bands listed! like not just one song, he may like that entire artist but those are the only single songs i have confirmation of! and if i listed only the band it either means i just know that he likes the band & i dont know the specific songs he likes OR he likes literally every song by them and hes just obsessed hahaha :) xxxx

man i wish high school teachers would be more:

  • hey, community college is great choice, just because you can’t afford/don’t have the grades/can’t leave your family/etc to go out to university does not make you worth any more or less. 
  • if you mess up this year it isnt smart but it isnt the end of the world, either. 
  • i can’t support the fact you’re not doing good in class but i’m not going to degrade you in public or private, especially when you come asking for help for your grade later on (due to the fact I am a teacher, and not someone who automatically knows what you go through in your life, what might ail you, and what the specific reason behind your lacking academically is, etc etc). 
  • you can still do good in life if you don’t get straight a’s, or even if you barely pass high school. 
  • there is no shame in attending college in your late twenties, or however old you are when you decide to get an certified education. 
  • there are more paths in life than one that includes a masters degree from a name university that you entered the day after you graduated from high school

and less:

  • this is what colleges want
  • do this because it’s good for college
  • if you really cared about your grade you would have asked for help on day one
  • if you screw up this class it’s gonna mess up your high school, and as a result, greater educational career
  • college is the only appropriate thing to do after high school
  • passive aggressive “of course i know some of you dont plan on going to college” and then purposely diverting attention from kids who ‘fit that stereotype’
