plant teachers

As a little kid, it never felt like boys were viewed as superior to girls. Not once did I feel like we were treated unequally. Not until my feminist teacher planted the seed.

How much of the current “patriarchy” debate started because young girls were fed this belief of inequality from a young age?

So Matt said that it would take about a month of downtime for Grog to learn how to read/write like a kindergartner, yeah?

So imagine after the Conclave falls, they finally get some rest. They pop between Whitestone and Emon, spending a week or so in each city before returning to their other home. 

A primary school has been established in Emon, and one day Grog is walking along on his way to one of the dozens of construction sites. He passes by the school, and sees a little boy crying while walking home. He asks the kid what’s wrong and the kid says he was being bullied by the bigger boys for not wanting to kick a cat that passed through the playground that day. 

Grog of course flashes back to being kicked out of the herd for not wanting to kill Wilhand, so he tells the kid to describe the ones bullying him. The next day, he rolls into the playground in his finest badassery and finds the bullies. He gathers all the kids around - some of the teachers are concerned but the head teacher recognizes Grog and lets it happen - and makes the bullies stand in the middle.

The bullies are of course scared shitless, and the kid is worried about what he just started, but Grog doesn’t do anything. Instead, he gives a long lecture about mercy. He tells them about how, after all the hurt of the dragons, the most important thing is to be kind to one another and help each other up. He tells them not to emulate the dragons, but to emulate Lady Cassandra of Whitestone, who took in refugees when her own city was hurting, or Kerr the Blacksmith, who rose up to lead a community of peace, or Wilhand the Gnome, who all but adopted a young man he logically should have feared. He tells them that life needs things to live, and that those things are brotherhood and kindness. 

The bullies are suitably shamed, and after the lecture Grog lets the kids rope him in to playing with them. At some point, the Grog gets to talking with the teachers, and somehow ends up revealing that he doesn’t know how to read. “What with all the adventuring and world-saving, didn’t have much time to keep up with my studies,” he explains.

And that’s how, much to everyone’s amusement, Grog comes in the next day as the very biggest new student in the classroom, and learns how to read along with his new lil buddies.

The plant that you have in your home — have you ever truly looked at it? Have you allowed that familiar yet mysterious being we call plant to teach you its secrets? Have you noticed how deeply peaceful it is? How it is surrounded by a field of stillness? The moment you become aware of a plant’s emanation of stillness and peace, that plant becomes your teacher.

A day in the life...

Alex Summers x Reader (romantic)

Summary: Alex brings Scott to the mansion and you are able to spend a few days with him (During apocalypse)

Warnings: Um swearing, very very slight mention of sex, death

Others: Reader can manipulate plants, she is a teacher at the school.

Word count: 3282


You sat at your desk between classes, trying to grade the test you had given out the other day, but it was hard to focus. Alex had called and said he was coming to the school. He usually never gave a heads up on his visits so you were anxious to see what this was about. You heard the faint crunch of gravel and took a glance out the window to see Alex’s car pull to a stop outside. Suddenly you were a teenager again, you jumped up completely abandoning your work and raced to meet Alex in the main hall.

He was leading his little brother, Scott, down the three stairs down from the foyer to the hall by the neck – the kid in question had gauze around his eyes acting as a blindfold and was commenting on the school, “Smells pretty old in here,” He muttered in a bored voice as he stepped onto the first step, “Is this a school or a museum?”

“One more,” Alex was looking down, he hadn’t noticed you waiting for them at the base of the stair, making sure Scott didn’t trip. It had been a few years since you had seen Scott, but the kid looked the same, so much like Alex yet completely different, “And last one.” The boys settled on the floor, “There you go.” Alex’s head moved up and his eyes scanned the room, smiling when they landed on you, “I’ll be right back.” He told his brother. He began to walk away from Scott before stopping – his hand still on the younger Summers’s neck, “Don’t move.” Alex ordered.

He released his hand from Scott’s neck, dropped the duffel bag he was carrying, and walked over to you, picking you up to kiss you without stooping, “Hey doll,” He whispered into your lips.

Hi everyone! My name is Valencia and I’m new to the Studyblr community.

A little about me:

     -19 years young

     -College Sophomore

     -Elementary education Major

     -My hobbies include reading, photographing, and blogging.

     - I’m super shy at first  but talkative and loud when I get comfortable. :D

My dream job is to become elementary school teacher because “Teachers plant the seeds of knowledge that last a lifetime.”

I am going to work my little butt off for that dream to come true and I  will succeed. That’s how I came up with my blog name…TeeHee ;).

Okay more about why I decided to join the community LOL. So,  I struggled to get into the swing of things my freshman year of college,It was such a big change. The biggest challenge for me was my time management skills and my study habits. I would always be tired, doing assignments right before the due date, and only studying the day before an exam…..YIKES!!

I did manage to have a 3.4 GPA by the end of the year but, I was disappointed in myself because i knew i could do better.

My Goal for my Sophomore year is to make my college Deans list (3.5 GPA and above) And to fix everything I did wrong my freshman year in college. 

Just looking at all of the studyblr blogs make me want to sit and study for hours. ( And that’s saying something because I never want to do that lol)

I Know this community will be a great thing for me and I hope to make lots of new friends along the way. I hope to inspire some of you all like you are inspiring me, as well as anyone else thinking of joining the community. It will be a blast I’m so excited.

IF YOU’RE A STUDYBLR , REBLOG THIS SO I CAN FOLLOW YOU!!!! PRETTY PLEASE :) <3<3 (I will follow back ALL studyblr/similiar.)I need all the inspiration I can get lol.  

Thank you so much for reading :)

Headcanon: George Weasley

Imagine George Weasley coming back to Hogwarts after many years for a reunion.
People clap him in the back and congratulate him on his success with the Battle of Hogwarts and the Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, and everyone remembers the times when he used to prank and make others laugh back at school. But he wasn’t the same.
He would stroll down the corridors and look at the different places he’s been with his twin brother, reliving the moments when they planted dungbombed on teacher’s offices or turned Neville into a canary. He would go up to the secrets passageways of Hogwarts, alone, trying to find a brother that was once with him and never came back. He carried his grief inside him and shaped it into a mask of happiness, but it was building up, layer by layer. It was too much to take.
On his way out of Hogwarts, he encounters a first-year who stares at him in awe, wide-eyed. And then he asks the question: “Were you one of the twins who jumped on a broomstick and flew out of Hogwarts, defeating Umbridge?”
And then George feels the tears sliding down his cheeks and replies in a quiet voice, “Once.”

And he collapses in silent melancholy, crying for the brother he lost, holding on to the little boy as if he was still holding on to Fred, holding on, dreading for the moment he needed to let go.

People who ingest the wild experience, experience something unique. They truly become aware that there are intelligences that are far older than the human knowing. Earth ecstatics for millennia have recognized that eating the wild is one of the primary means of soul-shaping and of traveling the ecstatic path. Plants are primary teachers for those who embark on this path.
