I am nowhere near the teacher that I have always seen myself as being… but you are getting there.
I make mistakes and don’t know how to fix them… but you know they are mistakes and are thinking about how to fix them.
I do things that I always looked…
I am nowhere near the teacher that I have always seen myself as being.
I make mistakes and don’t know how to fix them.
I do things that I always looked down upon when other teachers did.
There have been more bad days than there have been good.
Some days I don’t want to…
This is the greatest knock knock joke in the history of all knock knocks jokes ever told, ever.
I still feel like weeping just looking at this. Because in an episode that´s largely a show dealing with a fandom that´s a mess to deal with, there´s this moment of complete stillness, a little girl looking at the screen and just being overrun with cheer joy. Seeing herself, seeing a dream that can be. Because Glee´s that, too.
It´s here to tell its story and bring hope.
It’s interesting too, because in this moment the beautifully-costumed, singing, perfect group of performers is locked behind glass for everyone to just watch … Great contrast with them waking up the morning after their party with Cody, where they’ve got tinsel stuck on their mouths. They are always both of these things (and more).
i got 99 problems and 97 of them are due by the end of the week
The other two were due last week
IM GOING TO STAB MYSELF IN THE FOOT I JUST SENT MY ENGLISH TEACHER MY ESSAY ON HAMLET AND IT WAS STILL NAMED “the fresh prince of denmark yo holla”
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
this is why performance art is important
So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.
that last comment. actually crying.
I wish I could separate the two big trends of the year in computing — the cool gadgets and the revelations of digital spying — but I cannot.
Back at the dawn of personal computing, the idealistic notion that drove most of us was that computers were tools for leveraging human intelligence to ever-greater achievement and fulfillment. This was the idea that burned in the hearts of pioneers like Alan Kay, who a half-century ago was already drawing illustrations of how children would someday use tablets.
But tablets do something unforeseen: They enforce a new power structure. Unlike a personal computer, a tablet runs only programs and applications approved by a central commercial authority. You control the data you enter into a PC, while data entered into a tablet is often managed by someone else.

There is a tree, in the backyard of their suburb home, some twenty-five years after their marriage, a mere twelve years after they’d purchased the home.
It’s been a long time in the making. It had originally been a housewarming gift—a strange, morbid, totally apropos gift.
"You bought us…a tree?"
