this is why i hated everyone in high school

When I was younger I always felt self conscious about being a girl and
liking boy things, so I asked my mom one day ‘Would you have rather had boys than girls?“ and then my mother said the most supportive thing to me concerning my gender, "Why? I would rather have girls who like boy things. Its just the same.” And then for the next few years I loved being a tom boy. (up until high school of course but you know that’s another sort of hell that everyone has their own way of coping through.)

So I played with boy’s Actions figures AND girl’s toys. I only played with the plastic girl’s toys, not the barbie toys because I hated their hair getting into everything. Shall I regale you the story of Mulan on Jurassic Park and how she and Malcolm fought their way through the Raptor nest? Or how Pocahontas and Esmeralda were actually sisters and also Jedi and had to join together with Han Solo and fight Emperor Palpatine? No? Kids have awesome imaginations, you can’t tell what they will think up.

This whole 'gendering’ of what girls and boys play with is ridiculous and actually stifles children’s imaginations. Making a certain character 'Girl’s toy only’ and another character 'Boy’s toy only’ hurts kids ability to see these characters as equal.

maybe we’re built to fall apart and i’m just some girl that crawled out of a grave in southern minnesota but if you believe in anything then believe in this.

give us a few years and maybe we can survive the void everyone else’s love seems to fall into. my grandparents were high school sweethearts and i don’t see why we can’t be the same. i’m the type of girl who likes to hold onto things that she cares about and i hope you are too.

i’m not sure if this poem is over exaggerated for artistic purposes or just the truth i’m afraid you’ll hate me if i admit but here it is, here is my blood mixed in with the ink.

here you are- beautiful and wild and ridiculously wonderful. here i am- scared and shy and insanely in love

Why does Lord of the Flies get such a bad rap?

I just finished reading Lord of the Flies (yes, for a high school English class, what else?). Everyone I’d talked to prior to reading it said “That book as awful”, “Ugh, I hated that book”, “So BOOORING”, etc..

Why? I was completely enthralled. I loved the book. It’s one of my new favorites for sure.

anonymous asked:

who the hell is young b and why does everyone care that he smokes or drinks?

Short answer- Young B is an underground rapper and I don’t know why people care. 

Long answer- Remember the high schooler that Chulgoo helped during the Snoop Dogg cypher that got him eliminated on SMTM4? that’s him. He’s also on SMTM5, and Cameoed on Unpretty Rapstar3, now he’s on School Rapper. 

Now here’s my little two cents on these high school rappers that keep making headlines because they’re “Not good kids” I don’t like it. And I feel like most of the hate is coming from idol fan k-netizens. These kids aren’t idols (except for Mark of NCT) And I wished people stop holding them at the same accountability of being one. (In the sense they aren’t allowed to do anything wrong, say anything wrong, and have to uphold this squeaky clean image)

I’m not excusing underaged drinking and smoking. But Korea also has one of the highest drinking rates along with one of the highest smoker percentages. It’s just not surprising that he drinks and smokes.

It’s just hard to be a rapper when you have to walk on eggshells… I pity the kids on this show…I really do. They finally get a show catered to them since actual professionals go out to SMTM. Some of the SMTM guys have rap careers older than these high schoolers. So to give them a show on an almost fair playing ground made me so happy. It was giving them a real shot at a hiphop career.

However, Last week there was the whole drama with Jang Yong Joon and what he’d post on his sns. (He was a very promising rapper and one of my favs) After episode one Jang Yong Joon’s father had to resign from his job, he had to quit the show, and he even left his high school…It’s all a bit much. Now after episode two people are going after Young B…and if Young B has to quit the show too I’m going to be really upset. 

High school best friends Charlie, Sam, and Cas doing a webshow as an assignment for their computer apps class. And between Charlie’s queen of the nerds thing and Cas’s confusion at all thing pop culture and Sam’s bitch faces, they actually become pretty popular, so they keep doing the videos even after the assignment ends.

And in the question vids, the question that probably gets asked the most is “Why do Cas and Dean hate each other?” Because everyone can see that they totally do. Whenever Dean does something on the show, Cas glares at him, and he glares right back. They’re constantly making snarky comments to and about each other. And Cas always insists that he doesn’t hate Sam’s older brother, but then Charlie and Sam give him matching bitch faces.

After a couple years of the videos, they’re coming up on the big 200, so they decide to do a live show with live tweeting and tumblr interaction with their 5000+ followers. And midway through the show, they decide to play spin the burrito (a game of their own invention).

“I’ll go get the burritos!” Sam volunteers while Charlie yells, “I’ve got the sombrero!”

“Here, have a staring contest with Cas while we’re gone,” Charlie instructs the viewers as she and Sam stand to leave.

As they run out of the room, Dean can be heard in the hallway, “what’s up guys?”

“Burritos!”

“Sombrero!”

And Cas is busy staring directly into the camera, so he doesn’t see Dean peek his head into the room to check that the coast is clear. He doesn’t anticipate it when Dean’s arms wrap around him from behind as the older boy says, “Hey, Sexy.”

He barely has time to process before Dean is turning his head to the side to smash their mouths together. Cas tries to pull back, “Dean!”

“Don’t worry; I hid the burritos in the way back of the freezer this time. It’ll take him at least four minutes,” Dean promises. “And the sombrero is in the back of the hall closet, so that’ll take her five.”

“The camera!” Cas protests. Dean leans in for another kiss, murmuring, “Just edit it out later like you always do…” He presses another hungry kiss against Cas’s mouth, and Cas allows himself to be pulled under for a moment before he remembers that he can’t just edit it out later because…

“It’s a live show!” Cas squeaks, and Dean freezes. His eyes flick over toward the camera.

“Live?” He asks, and Cas nods his head.

Dean stays frozen there against Cas’s mouth for a solid ten second before he mutters, “Aw, fuck it!” And then resumes kissing his boyfriend.

When Charlie and Sam run back in a couple minutes later holding their spoils, she actually squeals. She holds out her hand toward Sam. “Pay up, bitch!”

He put the laptop aside and got closer to you, hovering over you. “You know, you’re the only girl in the school that doesn’t like me, it’s weird and I always notice you..out of everyone in that hell of a place. Isn’t that strange? How I’m interested in the only person you hates me?”

You couldn’t focus much on what he was saying since his great was fanning my face and his eyes were bright and intensely staring into mine.

“Why do you hate me?” He asked out of curiosity.

“Why are you so close to me?” You hissed, backing him back up a bit and it made you finally take a breath that you didn’t know you were holding in.

i genuinely enjoy the possibilities of an inuyasha high school au

  • inuyasha, kagome, and koga are sophomores. kagome is class president, kogas on the track and field team, and inuyashas a band member
  • kagomes like the most popular girl in school even tho shes only a sophomore, everyone genuinely loves her so much, kogas pretty popular among the jocks, and everyone hates inuyasha but kagomes like these are my boytoys and everyones like why do you hang out with these people
  • everyone thinks inuyashas really weird, his mom is a teen runaway that somehow ended up marrying a into a small foreign royal family
  • also the only pants he ever wears is red sweatpants and no one knows if its the same pair or he just has 10 pairs of red sweatpants
  • sometimes dad makes sessh pick him up from school and everyones in love with the small glimpses they get of the person behind the wheel even though hes constantly flipping off kids that walk by
  • inuyasha hates school but he starts paying attention so he can give answers to kagome and she’ll smile at him. koga tries to do it too but hes a fucking dumbass and literally never knows the right answer
  • inuyashas parents made him join band bc he isolates himself (also he refused to pick an instrument so iz picked the flute for him) and he secretly kind of likes band but hed never tell his parents that
  • the reason is bc he becomes weird acquaintances/friends with freshman shiori and senior jinenji who are also in the band
  • at one point he gets suspended for a few days bc people were bullying shiori and he gave one of them a concussion with the flute

anonymous asked:

Why do people dislike high school AUs? I mean, they're kinda cliche, but what is it that's so particularly reviled about them?

I can’t answer for everyone, but I’ve always felt that high school AUs take away from the original story, and thus the characters. And depending on the fandom, you can lose a lot of a character’s background by reverting to a high school setting. And if you try to force their entire adult background into a high school AU, it can come off as very forced.

Personally, I used to hate AUs in general, but I’ve learned that its the characters that get me invested more than anything, and because of that I now like seeing characters being put in AU situations. But with a high school setting, again, unless the fandom already deals with teenagers as the main characters, you’re losing so much of the original character. At that point, you’re basically writing all of people’s favorite characters has very OOC. And nothing turns me away from a fic faster than OOC characters.

Now I’d like to make clear that there is a HUGE difference between a high school AU and a high school setting. What I mean is, it’s okay to explore the high school background of a character, recognizing that this is where the character would be at that time in their life. For example, a high school fic with Jim Kirk is likely gonna deal with the immediate after effects of Tarsus IV. Compared to a high school AU, where Jim, Spock, Bones, Uhura, etc. would all be in school together, and Nero would have some convoluted “villain” role…there’s a big difference. And in my opinion, it trivializes the original narrative.

I hope that answers your question. I want to be clear that I’m not trying to tear down people who like to read and/or write high school AU fics. Everyone is welcome to their own fanfic tastes. I just hope that provides insight into why I and maybe others aren’t a fan of them.

*turns up to graduation*

*wins award for most narcissistic bitch*

My speech: These past years, and my time here at high school is something I’ll never forget. I’ve had my ups and my downs, but I wouldn’t change a single second. Because you know what? It’s moulded me into the person you see before you today. That’s why I’d like to say to the majority of you all…just a huge fuck you. If you think I’ll miss you, I most likely won’t. Honestly *starts happy tears* I seriously can’t wait to get out of this shit hole. I hope to never see another one of you again. Obviously excluding a few, shout out to my homies. *two people cheer* The rest of you can have a shitty year. I don’t give a fuck about your future plans. God bless. Oh, and Mrs B.. Yes my skirt might be short, but so is your husbands dick.

*kisses award*

*drops mic*

DAVID: Not really. He’s hard to get along with. He kinda changed since High School.
DAVID: He only hangs out with his few friends. He’s kinda cold and acting all high and mighty. Kinda intimidating.
DAVID: Not in the annoying way like Gregory does, but in the way that kinda makes you feel like you’re not worthy to talk to him. This sounds strange, but whoever knows him, knows what I’m talking about.

DAVID: Eh, what’s there to think about?
DAVID: They were like sixteen. We’re all adults here, everyone had their past flings.
DAVID: I mean I dated Annie at that time. And it’s not like Chris was Kyle’s only guy besides me.
STAN: Wait… he isn’t?
DAVID: … Shit, was that supposed to be a secret?
STAN: KYLE?!


KYLE:
It was just Bridon, I was eighteen, he was seventeen, nothing special.
STAN: Okay, even if it wasn’t anything special, why didn’t you tell me? I thought we tell each other everything!
KYLE: … Sorry?
STAN: Seriously, there must be a reason. I kinda feel stupid, I thought you hate Bridon.


KYLE: I do! Which guy doesn’t?
DAVID: True.
STAN: Kyle!
KYLE: I didn’t tell you because I felt… stupid.
STAN: Why, because you slept with the guy you said you hate because he stole your position as captain of the team and always told me not to hang out with him?
KYLE: Er, Yeah?
STAN: *sighs* Okay. It’s in the past. 

Yesterday my cousin asked me, “why and how are you not mad at your dad for aiming his gun at you at 12 years old, and telling you that he’d blow your fucking brains out.” I giggled, then she continued to say, “and your grandma for all the bad stuff she did to you: from not allowing you to eat, use her kitchen or washer and dryer, from the times she belittled you and messed up your self esteem, to you being homeless in high school…why and how Tie?”

I waited for a few seconds and answered, “ because there was a time in my life when I was filled up with so much rage and anger that I attempted to take my own life. I hated everyone, I felt that my family owed me something, especially an apology. I wanted to die most days, I thought I was fat when I was so thin that I resembled a walking Bratz doll. Anna (fake name for confidentially), they temporarily wrecked me. I have since been mended and learned that they were jealous of my drive to live beyond means that they were never exposed to. They are in the same place, doing the same things that they were doing 10 to 15 years ago and I’ve changed so much. Rage and expectations will limit your opportunity to grow and once I realized that I let it go. I love them all; everyone who did anything bad to me, but I had to love me first. Just because it’s family, doesn’t mean that it’s right. I forgave them and carried on to lead my own life beyond them. Do I miss the few good times that I had? Yes, But will I ever allow them to break me down again? No. I hold my joy and happiness, not someone else. When you recognize the fruit of inner happiness, your mom or anyone else that is miserable will not be able to take your shine. Please don’t let them get you, you are so intelligent. You had a minor set back for a glorious comeback baby girl, don’t let them disable and un-arm you. I love you and when you are ready, I will help you as much as I can.”

I have a story behind my smile, and years of living like an adult when I was still supposed to be a child. My mind stems further than my age because it had no other choice when faced with surviving in the real world. When I speak truth, understand that I am trying to allow you to see under a different light. I have lived a life that forced me into many things, but I took my dealt hand of cards and flipped them. I tell people all the time, I will NOT be a victim of my circumstances, but a survivor to share my story. Don’t let temporary people control your destiny.

alright, so something clicked earlier bc i was thinking abt why characters like riker bug me so much…….. it’s because everyone knows a riker. (@rikerhateclub this is for u <3)

EDIT: went through and tried to remove some binary-gendered language. ik this is about misogyny but a lot of this applies to feminine-presenting people as well because cis people will assume they’re also Girls rather than Feminine Nonbinary People. but a lot of these are personal experiences of mine that did involve girls so.

if you’ve presented femininely in public (online or offline) you’ve come into contact with obvious misogyny. it’s everywhere you go. it’s the guy in high school who won’t take girls’ experiences with pedophiles seriously and calls them “not that bad”. it’s the subsitute teacher you had in middle school who looked at you all and told you that every woman should marry an italian man, that invalidated womens’ anger as being irrelevant because of their gender, who was proud of making the girl who’d lost a cousin to cancer cry in the middle of class. it’s walking around school officials and feeling like they’re staring at your ass, trying to see if your skirt or shorts fit the dress code, when it’s 88 degrees out. it’s the guy who cheats on you and tries to make you feel better by saying “she was just a side bitch, you were my main girl.”

it’s toddlers and tiaras and kids’ gymanstics and figure skating and dance and hearing comments people make about how those girls shouldn’t be wearing skirts that short and need to cover up more when those girls are less than ten years old. it’s the guys who whistle at you and ask you for your number while you’re walking down the street. it’s grown men invalidating your sexuality and your mental illnesses on the basis that you’re a teenage girl. it’s men and boys saying they “just didn’t like the ghostbusters movie”; it’s every female main character recieving higher critique than men.

it’s male sexuality being encouraged and womens’ sexuality being shamed. it’s trans boys being dismissed as female “tomboys” and trans girls being mocked for embracing feminity, and it’s nonbinary people being expected to present masculinely as if men are the default human being. it’s lower pay; it’s the pressure to have kids and be a good housewife instead of recieving any pay at all. it’s the constant expectation that you’ll be inferior, before you’ve even introduced yourself.

the fact is, riker is someone we all know in our life. we all know a man who expects to be, by default, better than women; we all know a man who categorizes women into different boxes instead of recognizing them as people, in order to boost his own ego; we all know men for whom one of those boxes is “fuckable”, and anyone in that box can never be redeemed to him as smart or worthy of respect. we all know a man who takes up as much bodily space as possible while expecting women to shrink. we all know a william t. riker.

riker is not painted as an enemy, but he is one. he’s an enemy we all face in our daily lives. a man who’s redeemed as “respectable” because to other men, he is so, while any woman in a 30 mile radius knows he’s despicable. but he’s still seen as respectable because womens’ views are devalued and worthless.

Is it just me or is Chloe basically Donald Trump trapped in a high school girl’s body?

Suddenly I understand why I hate her so much.

-entitled
-flaunts wealth
-enjoys the suffering of others
-convinced everyone loves her
-thinks the rules don’t apply to her
-will use any underhanded trick necessary to win
-wants everyone to worship her
-turns on friends when convenient
-uses people as pawns
-racist [?!? I couldn’t quite understand the French, but I do know she said something about sushi that upset Mari and Adrien (which Adrien replied to by informing her that sushi isn’t even from the same culture) but I’m gonna go ahead and assume that it was not cool at the very least]

okay all end of the world aside, I feel so bad for Wendy. she isn’t as dynamic as the other mains but, first off in the new episode she was telling Mabel how in high school “everyone hates you” and also everyone laughed at her for getting her last name misread at registration and like, in that Bill Cipher AMA Bill said “WENDY’S A PUSHOVER” so sometimes she probably has people walking all over her and, you know, she doesn’t have a mom, and she’s stressed all the time. seriously I feel so bad someone protect her

Why I HATE Facebook...

I’m sorry, I just need to vent here and, as you will see, I cannot vent on Facebook.  

I have an acquaintance from high school with whom I am  (correction: was) friends on Facebook.  We have different opinions about some political issues.  That is fine; I do not have to agree with everyone.  

Anyway, this person attended a pro-gun rally today.  In Newtown.  As a protest against an anti-gun rally.  On Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

SERIOUSLY???!!  I do not think that Newtown should be politicized in any way.  I find it incredibly disrespectful use the deaths of innocent children as fodder for your own agenda.  But especially not on a day honoring a man who fought for justice using non-violence.

The whole thing makes me sick. Maybe it’s because I’m a teacher from CT but it all just seems SO wrong.

Thank you for listening to my rant.  I feel a little better.  I think I will go look at puppy pictures or something now.

*********************************************************************************


After posting the above last night, I received much reaction from people who disagree with me on the issue.   I want to be clear that I did not mean to create such backlash.  I posted it in anger and, hence received much anger in return.  I should have known better than to address such a hot-button issue in such an insensitive manner.  I meant only to vent some frustration and, actually, was disgusted at both sides of the issue.  Regardless, I hope you will accept my apologies. I have learned to never post anything when I am emotional or angry.  I take full responsibility and thank those of you who chose to set me straight.  While I did not deserve to be called some of the things I was, I accept that I angered you.  Please know that it won”t happen again.  Please accept my most sincere apologies.  I hope that we can all move on.
