I finally get it now. I’m the spawn of satan, and I can’t escape my powers. I’ve always been afraid of facing, or even acknowledging them. But that was wrong.. This is me. This is also who I am

every mitch outfit: ptxperience edition (part one)

im sorry im really salty right now but i have to go on a gd rant bc im????

  • this fandom is so violently against thinking outside the lovesquare it’s crazy. go through every ship you can think of, count the amount of content in the tags for each, and then come back to me if you don’t believe me
  • like first off let’s start with the f/f ships
    • by far the most popular two are julerose and chlolya, a.k.a. ships that don’t include mari and don’t mess with the lovesquare
    • and before you pull the whole “oh but their dynamic is better”
    • chlonette and chlolya are both rivals to lovers ships in their simplest form. so why is chlolya more popular?
    • alyanette and julerose are both friends to lovers ships in their simplest form. so why is julerose more popular?
    • it takes clawing through alyanette, chlonette, lilanette, etc. tags to find content, meanwhile chlolya and julerose are everywhere bc they’re “safe ships”
  • m/m ships! 
    • this one’s even funnier bc mlm ships in this fandom are practically nonexistent
    • the most “popular” ones are adrinino and adrinath, but guess why you barely see content for them?
    • the only reason they’re more popular than kim/max is bc they either involve the main characters, or they involve nath (the only background character that people seem to give a shit about for reasons unknown????)
  • oh and it gets better bc let’s talk about het ships that don’t get any love
    • i’ve seen marinath used so damn often as a means to an end for lovesquare shippers. like if i had a dollar for every time i saw marinath used as a way for adrien to be jealous/confess his feelings, i could buy a fucking condo
    • nino x marinette? alya x adrien? no?
    • yeah. figured. kinda makes the lovesquare impossible, right?
  • the best part about this is that when you check which pairings get useless comments tagged on about ‘oh are you guys serious?’ ‘yeah but they’re just friends?’ ‘this pairing would never work’ and ‘x person loves y so they can’t possibly like z,’ do you know which ones you’ll see more often than not?
    • pairings that include adrien or marinette

im tired of seeing people be dismissive of alyanette, adrinino, and ninette. i’m tired of having to literally claw through the tags for chlonette or lilanette. im tired of seeing artists and writers get tens of thousands of notes on their lovesquare art and struggle to get 200 notes on art with pairings that disrupt the lovesquare. 

it’s disheartening. it’s annoying. it’s isolating. and it feels like a lot of people don’t even care so i guess im done

dan in 2012-2015 on younow: lmao yeah sure ill marry u !!
dan in 2016-2017 on younow: nah m8 i can’t marry u ! u might b a cannibal and i can’t condone that… so anyway phil did this thing..

how to be a very cute little duckling as performed by kim namjoon

my room is so horribly messy and i wanna clean it right now but it’s 1 AM and I need to sleep.

and tomorrow I’ll want to clean it but then I’ll have homework to do instead

and then other things i need to finish

and then by the time I’m done I’ll just lay down on my bed and feel sad that my room is messy but be too tired to do anything

and i’ll try to clean it but i’ll only get a tiny chunk done before I have to do something else

i just want my room to be clean

Okay so as basically every other person out there I am blown away by the latest Yuri on Ice episode and in a state where I just have to rant about it to even think about calming down. Prepare for lots of Viktor, and also both our precious Yuri’s.


 With just one look and one line of dialogue, the whole show turned on its head and we can now watch it from a completely different perspective, more correctly, Viktor’s.

FOLLOW ME UNDER THE CUT TO READ A MEGA RANT I PILED UP IN SOME HOURS ABOUT VIKTOR NIKIFOROV AND A LOT OF REFERENCES TO THE FUTURE

jason todd’s shitty life: a summary.

  • is born into a shitty socioeconomic situation and forced to steal to survive from a young age, dropping out of his education early
  • grows up on some of the poorest streets in one of the most crime-ridden cities in america
  • has a father who is a criminal and has spent time in prison at least once during jason’s life only to disappear without a trace before jason is a teenager
  • has a mother who is addicted to drugs and is forced to look after her before she dies before he is a teenager
  • is finally taken in by a rich guy and given economic stability…only to be enlisted as a junior vigilante in a war against crime under the weight of his predecessor’s legacy with a legal guardian who doesn’t seem to realise that punching people in the face is not adequate therapy for a traumatised child
  • tries desperately to succeed at school whilst being a good robin, but ends up lonely and mostly friendless
  • tries desperately to incarcerate a serial sex offender and rescue his traumatised victim only for her to commit suicide because of said sex offender and for jason to find her body
  • his unchecked emotional issues become exacerbated to the point where he completely disregards his own safety and life whilst fighting crime
  • discovers that his biological mother is still alive and goes looking for her in the hope of having family, and upon finding her immediately trusts her and confesses that he is secretly robin whilst attempting to save her from the joker’s blackmailing…only for her to hold him at gunpoint and hand him to the joker on a silver platter
  • is brutally tortured half to death before having what was left of his broken body blown to hell by a bomb
  • comes back to life…buried alive and still carrying injuries from the explosion, forced to dig himself out of his coffin with his bare hands before being hit by a fucking car and spending a year in a coma, before wandering the streets for another year as a virtually braindead homeless person
  • has his higher functions restored in the lazarus pit and discovers that the madman who destroyed his life and countless others is still alive, causing jason to experience an emotional breakdown from which he is forced to recover alone

is anyone really surprised that he’s pissed off

Thus ended the spoilers

“Those who can’t do, teach”

That is the biggest load of bullshit and the root of so many systematic flaws in our (Canada’s) education system. Why?

Kids are always told, always taught “Hey even if you fail at this, you can always be a teacher” because of the myth that “anyone can teach!” Well you know what that leads to?

People who failed at their passion, failed at their achieving their dream, becoming teachers. True, some people really find their passion in teaching even if they never originally considered it, but I’m not talking about those people.

I’m talking about those asshole teachers man, the ones you can just TELL don’t give a fuck. You know the ones, we’ve all had them at least in our school if not personally for a class.

(For me, my love of science was destroyed and left rotting in the sun because of the same shitty teacher for grade 9 and 10. Utterly gone. Sometimes a spark of it comes back, but never the way it was before I had that teacher.)

Problem is, they are by far NOT the majority of teachers. 

Most teachers truly WANT to teach, want to work with kids and help them grow and share knowledge with them. Here is where those rotted teachers affect the good fruit.

We all know negativity overshadows everything with even a touch of it, so to a student who has a truly shitty teacher, well all teachers suddenly look as bad as that asshole. So a rowdy 15 year old whose mad about that one teacher, suddenly starts treating all their teachers like shit. Whatever, kids have hormones and emotions, and most teachers don’t take it personally (the assholes will) BUT!

Now take that one kid, add like say 6/ class and over 20 years. THAT is the origin of the other kind of asshole teacher: they achieved their dream and loved it until it rotted from beneath them, and they no longer love their job, and what was the point of it all anyways? 

(My school had a teacher like this. She was horrid and impatient and an academic death sentence to anyone who had her class. But she was very very intelligent and if you bothered to notice you could just TELL she was tired and just didn’t care anymore.)

So now there are teachers who just SHOULDN’T be teachers, and others who are SO WORN DOWN they become evil (Die a hero or become the villain kind of thing).

The Good Teachers are suddenly in a losing battle, because kids expect them to be awful, (also teenagers take everything personally man, I did, but damn), and even when a teacher is THE BEST who remembers them? We all have Shitty Teacher stories, but so few actually have like Good/Inspiring Teacher stories.

Thus the entire legitimacy of their profession is lost, because of a few bad apple and a society that believes “Those who can’t do, teach.”

HOW DO WE FIX THIS YOU ASK? WELL I HAVE SOME IDEAS

  1. Psychological/ Personality analyses for prospective teachers. Some people just plain and simple should not be teachers. Get rid of them right off the bat. I’m sure they’ll be fucking great in another field, but not this one. 
  2. Respect your teachers. This sounds simple, but I’m not just talking about students I mean their parents, other members of society, basically everyone. No one would be where they are without teachers, your kids are going to be partially raised by their teachers, they are extraordinarily important and yet people don’t just take them for granted, they think they are ‘lazy’ and took the easy road for life. DESTROY THIS MENTALITY, KILL IT, BURN IT, AND SALT THE GROUND FROM WHICH IT WAS BORN.
  3. Tailor classes to fit students’ learning style/personality. This is not coddling, the fact of the matter is people have different learning styles and the current education system works only for one group while royally fucking over everyone else. Many learning disabilities people have are ways the system says “They are different so we’ll label and marginalize them because we don’t know/don’t care what to do about them” but the reality is a lot of these kids just learn in a different way (OK I KNOW THAT’S SUPER GENERAL IM SORRY, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TRYING TO SAY???). So many BRILLIANT kids struggle through school because they don’t fit the education system’s tiny box, and because they struggle they are labelled “stupid”. In a different environment, with a different teaching method, they could truly excel. Instead of diving schools with “The Smart/Elite Classes” “The Medium Difficulty” and “The Dumb Kids”, schools should be divided by the different learning styles. Help kids learn to learn, don’t smother them and try to cram them into a very specific box.
  4. Stop Mountains of Homework and Change Tests. Forcing someone to do anything will ultimately ruin their enjoyment of it, and homework is a great way to make kids hate learning. People LIKE learning, we really do, but the fastest way to kill a spark is to bury it. Even tests, if you just encourage kids to show off what they know instead of shame them for what they don’t, all they does is fuel the mentality of not being “smart enough” and seriously create a fear of failure. My adult siblings still have nightmares about standardized tests ok, YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG WHEN DECADES LATER PEOPLE ARE SO TRAUMATIZED THEY HAVE NIGHTMARES. 
  5. Start School Later. Teenagers need their god damned sleep. Adults do too, but the body is going through so many changes during your adolescence that you need more sleep. Even if you are well rested, everyone’s mind is basically soup in the morning (because you’re TIRED) but also you don’t absorb information as well when you are exhausted. Also fewer grumpy students and teachers, which leads to more enjoyable classroom environments. THERE ARE LITERALLY NO DOWNSIDES TO STARTING SCHOOL LATER. (This one is so easy and obvious it’s dumb that we still start school before sunrise.)
  6. Pay Teachers Better. BEING PAID MORE DOES NOT MAKE PEOPLE LAZY, FROM US POOR MINIMUM WAGE FOLKS TO MIDDLE CLASS STABLE PEOPLE. IT MAKES US APPRECIATE WORK AND BUY MORE THINGS AND FIX THE ECONOMY. That “appreciate work” is very key to this, because a well paid teacher is a happy teacher who is far less likely to grow sour and take it out on their students. If we put this with the whole “Kill homework” idea, we get well paid AND well rested teachers who now operate at maximum capacity. You wouldn’t want a surgeon who is underpaid and completely exhausted to do your surgery, so why are you OK with the people in charge of entire generations of kids, effectively the future, to be tired and poor?

These are off the top of my head, and I am positive there are more points that I just haven’t considered. My knowledge comes from an understanding of the education system in Ontario specifically, so please PLEASE add your own thoughts. ( edwardspoonhands can you lend your thoughts on this topic maybe?? I don’t know how different the American Education system is, and Canada takes may cues from The States. )

Guys if we want school to be better in the future, this shit has to change.

I can feel you holding me, yet you’re not here.
