middle schoolers complaining about how stressful school is
when you and a friend successfully tell a lie you planned out
am i going to be sleepy every day for the rest of my life
I think we could all use a tiny kitten on our screens from time to time.
ugh i love how his tail is just a triangle
IT’S TAIL IS A TRIANGLE
His front paws are like ‘stealth mode’ but is back ones are like ‘IT’S A JOLLY DAY IM OFF TO GO ON A WALK IN THE PARK’
I hate when people mention someone in their life by their name without providing me with any context about who this person is.
“So Dylan and I went to yoga class yesterday — ”
Hold it right there. Who the fuck is Dylan. Your boyfriend? Your arch nemesis? Your brother? Your pet sea monkey? Your therapist? Your favourite fictional character? Are you on a first-name basis with your dad? Last-name basis with Bob? WHO THE FUCK IS DYLAN.
at least i know nobody’s using me for my looks
i’m so old
it was actually 14 years ago, you are not with math
you’re not with math either
Two more months and it’s 2015 what the fuck
I swear it was 2012 and we were all freaking out about the world ending like three months ago
best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.
i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.
this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY
they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires
yeah but they’re quieter that way
other countries have their figure skating set to classical music and soulful movie soundtracks
and then there’s canada
