Je suis beaucoup de choses! And literature is my life.
legitimate criticisms of education
- most teaching methods only compliment a few ways of learning
- large workloads that require students to compromise their physical or emotional health
- Cs are supposed to be average but are treated by teachers and parents as failure
non-legitimate criticisms of education
- "if teachers only teach one subject how do they expect students to learn 5 subjects?"

Friend: "Are you gonna be a teacher?"
Friend: "Wait, it was a book before it was a movie?"
Friend: "Ew, how do you read things not from this century?"
Friend: "What's an Oxford Comma?"
Friend: "Teach me about semi-colons."
Friend: "Just, so many books, why?"
imagine if china, while they’re up on the moon, decides to knock down the US flag or whatever just to say ‘screw you’ and its like, what are we gonna do? spend a couple million just to fly some craft up to the moon and re-erect the flag? the whole scenario would be petty and that’s hilarious
