my favorite teacher!

My high school English teacher was phenomenal. He was an incredible educator, and I still keep in touch with him whenever possible. He projected an air of quiet dignity and a little severity - Minerva MacGonnigal if she were a baritone. His voice was low, deadpan, and always serious, and he was my favorite teacher ever.

One day, my mother and I found his old blog, and on it was a photo of him as a sophomore in college. The clean-cut 40-something man in spectacles and a tie had been a fucking goth. I’m talking full-on Robert Smith… black hair in dangerous spikes, black eyeshadow, powdered-white skin, and tall black boots. The photo shows him lounging dramatically in an overstuffed armchair, tenting his fingers and giving a death glare to the camera. On his left is a pile of stuffed animals.

It is my favorite photo to ever exist.

The dark side of a Force Bond

“I’m being torn apart.”

“I wanna be free of this pain.”

“I’m dying, Rey. All my family belongings will be passed to you.”

“You take a bowcaster shot and walks it off…”

*incoherent grumbles*

“Only to be taken down by menstrual cramps?”

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
—  “Wild Geese”

This is my trick for remembering trigonometric values. Forget memorizing those little charts or triangles, this is so much easier. 

I learnt this in 10th grade from my favorite teacher (who wasn’t actually my maths teacher at the time) and I still used it for the rest of High School and will probably continue to use it in University.

So what do you do? You draw the chart in the picture. That one. 

OK, but how do you read it? Like a table. (If you’re unfamiliar with radians, do not worry. It also works in degrees, just write: 0, 30, 45, 60, 90 instead.)

For example, if you want to find the sin(pi/2), you simply start at sin(x) and then move over until you’re at pi/2 (or 90 degrees). It says sqrt(4). Now you put that over 2, and you have it. Sin(pi/2) = (sqrt(4))/2, also known as 2/2, or 1. 

If you want to find the cos(pi/4), you do the same thing: start at cos(x), move until (pi/4). It says sqrt(2), now put that over 2, and you have cos(pi/4) = sqrt(2)/2.

For tan(x), just take the sin(x) value and divide it by the cos(x) value!

So tan(pi/6) = sqrt(1) / sqrt(3) = 1/sqrt(3).

I find this so easy to remember because the first line starts at zero and increases, and the second line starts at 4 and decreases. It works for any values (yes, even ones above pi/2!) and it’s so simple. I encourage you to start by writing it out on every paper, when you’re studying, and on your exams.

I can’t find the post talking about how Scream MTV on Netflix references Hannibal, but I finally got the exact screenshots and quotes! And all in the first two episodes …

(Also hannibal is the only show they mention for gothic tv that’s not on Netflix… 👀)

So I remeber our shop teacher was a loon. First of all, the class he taught was called Woodshop. His name? Mr. Wood. He was downright scary when he wanted to be. If he saw you running in the halls he would yell at you in German (terrifying). If you were goofing off in his class, he would take out his glass eye and throw it at you. How did he loose his eye? A woodshop accident. He also graded everyone’s first project (a birdhouse) by throwing it against the wall. If it stayed intact, you passed. He was my favorite teacher.

AUs to consider

  • “i’m on a school trip to another country and one of the locals is seriously hot” au
  • “i’ve never met you before but i went to a huge party at your house with my significant other - who then proceeded to dump me” au
  • “you’re the cutest waiter at my favorite restaurant” au
  • “we didn’t come to this anime convention together but we dressed up as characters that are a couple in the show and people keep assuming we’re together and asking us to pose for pictures so hi there what’s your name” au
  • “you rescued me from the creepy person that was hitting on me in the bar” au

So when i was in my last year my grade wanted to shoot a graduation movie. We called it the expandables. So the movie was about fights between a Elite student spy squad and a few of the teachers.
The best were our Philosophy and programming teachers.
For the scene we asked the Philosophy teacher to wear a toga. He did it and asked if we could lend it to him afterwards cuz the teachers had to submit pictures of themselves for the New principal. It still hangs in the office.
The programming teacher was dressed like a wizard for the movie cuz the students were fighting him by playing D&D and he brought the needed things like maps, Figures and Cape himself.
I don’t have to mention they were my Favorite teachers right?
