i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
It seems like cats never forgot the fact that they were worshipped as gods thousands of years ago
i love how no matter how badly you fuck up benadryl cumquat’s name everyone on here still knows who ur talking about
SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I will never not reblog this
"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."
I don’t believe in homework. I honestly don’t give my college students more than a half hour or hour’s worth of work FOR THE WHOLE WEEK.
The problem is, if you didn’t get it in class, you’re just going to spin your wheels trying to do the ‘reinforcement’ homework. It’s easier to come talk to me about it. I give enough homework to prove you understand the concept. And grammar. I’m a total bitch and I give grammar homework. But it’s one to three grammar concepts a week.
Even the readings are short. I remember being in college and being asked to read like 100 pages or a whole book, and I was like… what? No. I don’t have time for this crap. And my concentration was nil due to being unmedicated.
Most of my students are adults or returning students (mid/late 20s) and no one has time for that crap. I do my absolute best to make the best use of class time and cram everything into their heads then, and if not, there are videos on the class webpage for reinforcement. I *really* think excessive amounts of homework PER NIGHT are bullshit.

Koko the gorilla is a resident at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, CA and communicates understands spoken english and uses over 1,000 signs to share her feelings and thoughts on daily life. After the first call about Robin’s passing, Koko came to Dr. Patterson with an inquiring look on her face. Dr. Patterson explained that ‘we have lost a dear friend, Robin Williams. Koko was quiet and looked very thoughtful, Koko signed the words for “woman” and “crying.” Koko became very somber, with her head bowed and her lip quivering; she was crying over the loss of her friend.
"Robin made Koko smile — something she hadn’t done for over six months, ever since her childhood gorilla companion, Michael, passed away. Not only did Robin cheer up Koko, the effect was mutual, and Robin seemed transformed — from a high-energy entertainer, into a mellow, sensitive, empathetic guy, who also happened to be really funny." -Dr. Patterson
my teacher sent a student home today because the student had had an anxiety attack earlier in the morning and she said “if you have a broken bone, you don’t just keep walking on it and damaging it more, you treat it. Your mental health is the same. Health then school.”I was about to get really angry but it took a different turn than I expectedwe really need more teachers like this
I’ve come to learn that nobody cares about anyone else. Anything that we do is, in someway, a way of benefitting our own lives. That is so horrifyingly sad.
