it's not like i'm an english teacher

So my english teacher just gave us a speech yesterday on how “Plastic is the one to blame on homosexuality because is scientifically proven that it has a chemical that makes people more feminine.” 

And like yeah it’s stupid nonsense (and p dang homophobic mixing femininity with homosexuality) and its obviously something fake he believed bc he believes everything he listen on fucking conspiracy white gringos videos on youtube.

But you know what? I am buying it, plastic is gay now, I’m sorry straighties

What if Santi really did kill himself with Molly and he's just a ghost wandering around being tormented forever because he's stuck in purgatory

ok so…thematically that’s pretty much true lmao. i’m just gonna throw any “santi is actually dead/in a coma” theories out the window because he is in fact very much alive– but in what way? 🤔

(santi’s present day story up until this point has pretty much just been him moving through the different circles of hell as he relives his past and it becomes increasingly more and more nightmarish…he’s been stuck there for a while, but when will he finally escape? 🤔🤔 )

Some German names are weird like the name Hermann which sounds like you say Mister Man when it’s translated into English and if you’re English it literally looks like someone misspelled ‘Her Man’ but it gets even weirder because it’s a really common name and it can be used as a first and a sure name that means if your teachers last name is Hermann you have to call him Mister Mister Man

The Houses as Teachers I've Had
  • I'm sorry that this is the most steriotypical thing you'll ever read.
  • Ravenclaw: 1. My english lit professor, who always got really excited and would go off on tangents for discussions, leading us all to an existential crisis at least once a week. Likes to pretend he's scary and aggressive when really he's a small walnut who really likes books. Randomly cut me off in a conversation because he decided to teach me how to 'punch men'. Likes to write books where he is always a main character because 'it's easier than actually going outside myself and trying these things out'. Literally trips over everything. 2. Another professor who was literally the king of oversharing and then would say things that were hysterical but would offend people who weren't understanding their irony. When people's logic didn't make sense, he'd keep following it until he twisted it to a humorous outcome. Also gave us all existential crises. Lectured about the correct way to live your life and when I asked what it was he went "hell if I know, I'm only making it up as I go along and hoping that when I die, God doesn't saute me".
  • Slytherin: 1. My high school English teacher. Loved me, hated everyone else, failed people who were shitty in general, favoritism like no other, liked to make people debate things out but didn't have a personal point to prove. Let things slide if she liked you, very sarcastic. If you said something stupid, she would threaten to shove her stiletto heel in your eye socket. Said she only cried once in her life, and it was when she was in college and her Shakespearean Verse teacher had a thick Jamaican accent, and she never knew what was happening. 2. My Spanish teacher from Mexico who was literally so chill all the time, and only disliked like 2 people who were always antagonizing him (he failed them and passed everyone else). Would say and do everything really dramatically and said ZORRO at least once per class. Complained about the price of bananas. Gave up in the last month and just made us watch Jimmy Fallon videos every day because 'Jimmy Fallon is the man'.
  • Gryffindor: 1. Skateboarded into my freshman comp. course every day, forgot to wear pants under dresses that were see-through, would make us read vague philosophical essays that she then used to advance her own personal agendas. Rarely ever taught, mostly just went on tumblr while everyone looked around frantically. Tried to convince us to raise our children genderless by giving them a name like 'turnip' and never telling anyone their sex. 2. History-enthused teacher who used modern analogies to explain american history. Was the most petty man ever, it was perfect. When 'sporty' guys in the class would refuse to participate, he would pull out a small basketball and his wastebasket, and every time they got a question correct on the verbal review, he would let them shoot. Sweet guy in general, would walk people to the nurse, authoritative and honestly ugh I love him he is my son.
  • Hufflepuff: 1. Math teacher who ever Friday brought in some kind of baked good or candy, had little songs she'd dance around the classroom singing, chubby and sweet little woman, really liked Bon Jovi. 2. An advisor I met with once only because I wanted to drop a class that I was failing who sat me down for four hours. She started crying about 6 times, read me a whole bunch of motivational quotes, kept reading excerpts of the bible, and randomly having us pray together

real talk about alicia clark in 3x05 for a second and how this arc of hers is actually a brilliant piece of storytelling like… 

if ftwd was a classic literature novel, your 11th grade english lit teacher would be lecturing on how alicia clark’s self-destructive spiral is an allegory for the millennial let down and apathy of the 21st century.

alicia clark grew up as an upper middle class millennial, in a nice suburb home, with a nice, seemingly well-rounded nuclear family. she and nick probably played little league soccer and have a box in the attic of old metallic plastic trophies.

she tuned out her world in favor of her ipod, lost herself in her studies because she was college would be the key to getting whatever she wanted out of life.

and now? all that pretty, painted ‘you can be whatever you want when you grow up! you can change the world!’ bullshit has been ripped away from her worldview and she sees the truth.

alicia clark could be a normal twenty-something going through her quarter crisis. useless college degree that put her tens of thousands of dollars in debt, dreams of saving the whales and ending world hunger crushed for the monotony of filing papers and learning microsoft excel.

english teacher’s lecture? all those zombies are corporate workers, dragging ass all day to get no where. lost in capitalism, in the draw of their cell phones. no recognition of the world around them, just consume, consume, consume…

alicia clark’s existential crisis is great television because it’s fucking relatable. all the pleasure has been sucked out her life in favor of survival. while she runs from zombies, we’ve got master’s-educated people working for minimum wage (or less). we’ve got brilliant young men and women who are always one mistake away from living on the streets or going without food this month. (or one congressman away from losing our health coverage for vital, lifesaving medications.)

it feels like it’ll never end. the struggle just brings more struggle. there’s little hope.

she tries drugs and sex and activities like cliff diving to feel something, to enjoy a moment in her miserable fucking existence. we… also do drugs and have sex and enjoy high-adrenaline activities lol, but additionally have the luxury of shit like enjoying our avocado toast and sending snapchat videos with silly dog filters and playing pokemon go for 8 hours a day, because if you can’t fucking get anywhere with the skills and degree that you worked on your whole life, at least you can smile for a moment when you finally evolve your bulbasaur.

idk, alicia clark’s existential crisis is brilliant and i’m loving it. rock on, my broken lil bean.

Hi, I'm so glad you're doing this blog : it's amazing! And I d like to thank you ! Today I have a request : I can't find a coming back or coming home tag ? I recently read a sweet home Alabama AU and it was really great . Could you help me with this ? I'm not a master on AO3 ... thanks again and have a good day xxx! Igrin

well with the leaving beacon hills tags | stiles | derek | the majority of the time, they do come back home so thats the tag you’d go through

When the Moon rises by lizc (11/? | 7,325 | R)

Stiles is a lonely highschool boy and Derek is an attractive English teacher with an appreciation of moles and whiskey eyes. When Stiles leaves abruptly during freshman year, Derek can’t help but wonder where the beautiful boy went. Three years later, a familiar face arrives back in Beacon Hills.

or

AU where Stiles is a lonely high schooler and leaves, comes back, and shocks everyone, including his then and now English teacher Derek Hale.

Where’s Stiles? by Bashfyl (1/1 | 4,212 | PG13)

Six years after leaving Derek returns to Beacon Hills to get his man. What he finds is not at all what he expects.

The Boy Who Ran With Wolves, Only To Be left Behind by Treybias (10/? | 9,864 | NC17)

This is the story of Stiles. Stiles who had put everything he had into the pack. Who had fought, bled, cried, and screamed for the pack. Stiles who when cast out of the pack, became hardened and cold. Stiles who left only to return far more powerful than anyone could believe.

Therapy for a Mending Heart by just_desserts (1/13 | 2,983 | NC17)

An urgent call and a message from his dad telling him to come home to Beacon Hills from USC causes Stiles to not hesitate packing his things, panic forming his every move as he makes his way back to his hometown. When he gets there, memories of his mother and her passing plague him and it doesn’t help when he feels like he has nothing to hold onto as reality parallels the past.
Maybe talking with strangers about his problems in group therapy wouldn’t be such a bad thing, Scott tells him. Especially when one of those strangers is a gorgeous, green-eyed man named Derek.

AU where there are no werewolves or any Supernatural, Stiles is in a dark place after his father passes away, and Derek is right there with him as the anniversary of the house fire taunts him.

anonymous asked:

thanks to you I am more interested in my english classes lmao my teacher its like 'hey! where that entusiasm came from? I'm very glad' and all I can do is smile and say 'well, there is a girl who write pretty good stories and I want to learn as much as I can so I can read them all' so yes, thank you kaz

omg, that’s amazing! 

1trufangirl  asked:

I'm taking a creative writing class, but I'm not actually learning anything. To the point where I am learning more from your eight minute videos once a week than I am in hour and a half lessons from this teacher every other day. It feels like a complete waste of my time (he literally taught a unit about jumbo jets. We watched a 45 minute documentary about jumbo jets... WTF??) and it's too late in the semester to change classes. Any ideas on what I can do?

Same thing happened to me my freshman year of college, except it was a different kind of writing/english class (can’t remember, it was a decade ago). All he did was complain about his ex-wife every fucking class. I ended up withdrawing with a W. Obviously it’s not recommended to do that a lot, but if it’s still an option, there’s that. If not, I think you just kinda gotta deal with his lame ass. In the future, I’d suggest picking your classes via RateMyProfessors.com - if it’s still around. Again, I graduated a while ago.

anonymous asked:

you're not a good writer

I respect your opinion but… Can you please give me a reason or tips? This alone isn’t helping me improve, and whilst you are by no means obligated to help a gal out, it would mean a lot to me! Thanks love :)

have you ever considered neil as a teacher? I know he was destined to be an actor, but imagine this: neil as an english teacher and he is so enthusiastic about literature? just like keating, he performs it in class and notices how the student’s eyes light up? these are neil’s favourite days and he can’t wait to come home to todd and tell him all about it

Rhythmic Gymnasts (currently competing) || Pros and Cons [requested by anonymous]

Some of the points below are generally known and obvious advantages and disadvantages of these gymnasts, but some represent only my personal opinion. I donโ€™t claim to be 100 % right about it. If youโ€™re new, I recommend you to watch their routines yourself and make conclusions on your own. Obviously, everyone has different preferences. And they donโ€™t always fit the judgesโ€™ criteria of a perfect gymnast. Which is okay. Sad. But okay. And common.

Iโ€™ll start with gymnasts from Ukraine, as I think I have more knowledge about them and, obviously, I pay more attention to them than to gymnasts from other countries. Iโ€™ll try to analyze others too, but I canโ€™t promise you to make the post soon.

I feel like every time I tell people I'm gonna get an education to become a teacher people get this smug face and I feel like everyone think I should be doing something better and I keep thinking about the if u can u do if u can't u teach phrase and I think I want to do it but I'm so insecure and I feel like it's not a good enough thing to be...

teaching is so incredibly important. i’m in a fine arts degree and that could take me a few places but i would be so happy to teach art, or english. i think that’s a dope aspiration and people have to stop seeing teaching as something that’s done when you couldn’t quite make it any bigger because. it’s So. important. and wonderful. if you have a gift for helping young adults understand something greater, why not utilise it?? that’s not a shortcut, that’s not lazy, thats a near selfless act and frankly there needs to be more of it. fuckin go get em.
