Writing a ‘small summary’ of the English school system for an American friend has made me realise just how fucking crazy it actually is. How many acronyms/initialisms do we even fucking NEED because we definitely have too many.
Can’t wait until this game drops! Heard that not only are the original staff of Katawa Shoujo are on board, but they got fuckin’ Nobou Uematsu, Just Blaze, J. Dilla, Shing02, and Quincy Jones to do the music and Frank Miller, Naoko Takeuchi, and Tony Harris to do the character art.
The people who create these tests and score them do not know each of you – the way your teachers do, the way I hope to, and certainly not the way your families do. They do not know that many of you speak two languages. They do not know that you can play a musical instrument or that you can dance or paint a picture. They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them or that your laughter can brighten the dreariest day.
