school athletics


I’m sure we hear more about him in the future. We have got to get these kids to understand that striving to be a rapper, football and basketball player is not the only thing out there. Unfortunately, kids make fun of kids who get good grades or are in honor classes because they don’t view it as being cool. It is critical to stop the bullying and stop that mentality. At some point the cycle of poverty needs to stop somewhere within a family. A child that focuses on school and graduates high school and moves on to college helps end the perpetuation of repeating the cycle of uneducated people in a family structure. When that child graduates and hopefully moves on to a great career. Numerous inventors were black.. THIS is what our youth should focus on, strive for!


A trans teen boy has to wrestle in a girls’ tournament because of a backward rule

  • A Texas policy requiring students to compete on teams that correspond to the sex that appears on their birth certificates has kept transgender teen boy Mack Beggs on the girls’ wrestling team all season.
  • On Friday, after a 52-0 winning streak, Beggs is slated to compete in the girls’ wrestling state tournament.
  • But no matter the outcome of Friday’s championship match, the situation is a lose-lose for Beggs, who has been forced to compete in a league at odds with his gender identity. 
  • What’s more, many of those fighting for his right to compete against boys do so less because they’re concerned about trans-exclusionary rules, and more because they believe Beggs’ hormone therapy gives him an unfair advantage over his female opponents.
  • According to the Washington Post, an “unhappy parent” even went so far as to file a lawsuit calling for Beggs to be allowed to compete in the boys’ league. Read more (2/24/17

This past Saturday I graduated from Xavier University of Louisiana and it was a day to remember. I remember my coach telling me I should change my major because I was doing horrible in school. I remember crying numerous of times because I wanted to give up. With the help of my mom, genuine friends, and God I did it. My mom did it. This fall I’ll be attending The University of Nevada Las Vegas to pursue my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy ❤️

Friendly reminder that literally everything in life is in your hands and you have the time to sort things out to prevent future issues or fix issues that have arisen. You’re the one who can sign up for programs, you’re the one who can block social media sites when you’re studying, you’re the one who can delete Instagram because you think it’s a source of negativity, you’re the one who can take free online courses, you’re the one who can drag your ass out of bed 30 minutes earlier than you usually do to go for a run, you’re the one who can use duolingo every day to learn a new language, you’re the one who can brave the morning cold to sit on your balcony or outside your place or on the curb or on a bench and draw the sunset, even if you think you’re not very good. So stop feeling angry at yourself for not making the small decisions that add up to create a better you, in more ways than one. Who cares if you’re not the best artist and dropped visual arts as soon as you could, who cares if you haven’t run in two years and never moved on from your high school athletics carnival, who cares if you’ll lose the great feed you set up, who cares if people will think you’re a bit of a nerd for taking coding courses or going on Hogwarts is Here, who cares if people will scoff as you tell them you’re learning an odd obscure language and question you. So ignore the stupid voice in your head, and the voices around you, don’t let fear, self doubt and laziness screw with the things you know you’ll benefit from. It’s in your hands, so act like it.

Maryland’s high school athletes can now wear their hijabs during sports tournaments

  • Under the new policy, high school athletes are allowed to wear their religious head coverings as long as it’s not “abrasive, hard or dangerous to any player/others.” The former policy required students to provide “documented evidence” to wear religious garments during sport tournaments.

I really don’t think Paige really loves Emily, it always feels like a competition when she’s around Emily. We know she has an abusive competitive past:

Those are just examples of her abusive competitive past. but when she’s around Emily she seems to care more about Alison than Emily.

It’s like

Emily: Hey

Paige: Okay, so Alison is a BULLY!! she needs to go to jail!!

Those are all from season 1-4, but even her recent behavior is terrible. Who in their right mind blames someone for having a mentally ill and an abusive con husband? She’s doing everything she can to get Emily to hate Alison and she’s been doing this for YEARS. It’s sad and embarrassing. 

besides her victim blaming, she’s also known for being obsessive and a stalker. Paily fans like to hate on Alison for being an adult with a bitchy attitude, but guess what, she’s a pregnant, hormonal, jealous women. I’d like to see Paily fans find an excuse for her stalking Emily or do they only have selective memory?

on top of all that, she gets a job at Rosewood High School as an athletic supervisor, something that didn’t exist until Paige got there..

Now, I don’t think Paige is trying to get close to Emily because she loves her, but because she’s working with AD. The picture below (credit: broswatchplltoo) shows AD/AD’s helper with hair exactly like Paige’s hair and I’m sure it’s not a wig because Jenna’s blind.

I came on Tumblr, saw a post that aggravated me and decided to make this so it wasn’t planned and is probably all over the place but hopefully it’s understandable 

anonymous asked:

Yo could you share some of your headcanons for the deh kiddos :O ?! I'm really curious!!

*cracks knuckles* HEADCANONS UNDER THE CUT (these are generally feel-good and going off of a Connor Lived And Everything Gets Better AU set of ten [+ one extra] headcanons for the kids where they’re all friends)

Shut Up and Wink at Me

by kikikryslee

Pairing: Harry Styles/Louis Tomlinson

(14K Words)

“Did you get your housing information yet?” Louis asked.
Harry pursed his lips. “Yeah. So?”
“So? So it looks like we’re going to be roommates. Don’t you think we should know each other a little bit?”
“We’ve gone to the same schools since Kindergarten. I already know you.”
“Yeah, but we’re not like, friends,” Louis said.
“Ouch.” Harry pretended to be hurt, holding a hand over his heart. “That stings, Louis.”
Louis rolled his eyes. “Look, I would like to know at least something about you before I live with you for an entire school year.”
“What do you suggest?”
“I don’t know,” Louis said. “I guess just like, hang out and make sure we’re compatible?”
“You make it sound like we’re going on a blind date.”
“Trust me; we’re fucking not.”
“Again, ouch.”

Or, the one where Louis wants to go away to college to get away from everything having to do with his hometown. So when he finds out his roommate will be Harry Styles, perfect school athlete and the exact opposite of what Louis wants in a roommate, he’s not happy about it.
