it should be a high school requirement to work in food and retail for at least 6 months a piece so everyone can understand not to be assholes to employees who are just doing their jobs 

and so we actually have some work experience to put on resumes

that’s actually a really good idea

It’ll also teach you a few valuable things like how the hell to set up a bank account, how to manage your regular life around a job (very different from managing it around school. How to interact with a boss, how to interact with coworkers and customers. All that.

tagged #nam is having herself a rant #i didn't learn any of that till after high school #and the majority of my work experience came right in the middle of college #not a good time to not have any idea how to manage your money #though you know someone would be a wiseass and try to get fired

Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we have a nation full of multiple generations worth of people who willfully and proudly refuse to read.


Yeah, no, this was me all the way through high school and university. Andromeda Strain was fantastic - All the King’s Men was boring as fuck to me, and an utter slog to get through. This is the kind of stuff I like:

The Hot Zone - Richard Preston

The Demon in the Freezer - Richard Preston

Spillover - David Quammen

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex - Mary Roach (actually, everything by Mary Roach is fucking gold - very educational, very interesting, well-researched, and with a sense of humor that is completely irreverent at times, and respectful exactly when it needs to be. Look up her TED talk about orgasms on YouTube)

Idk, I like science, and sci-fi, and fantasy. Almost anything, really, that focuses on humor, or factual information presented in an interesting way, or something that emphasizes human emotion and experience.

Oh, have you read Have Spacesuit—Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein? It sounds like it’d be right up your alley. Scifi story about a kid who wins an old-fashioned spacesuit and ends up on a space adventure. Lot of fun.

I had a lot of trouble getting through most of the classics because so many of them are tragedies or bittersweet endings. I hated having to slough through Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth, but I loved every moment of Much Ado About Nothing when I read it on my own time. Catcher in the Rye and Grapes of Wrath danced between annoying and frustrating to me because I couldn’t make myself like or sympathize with the lead characters, but I read like half the school library from cover to cover and loved a lot of the books. Something Wicked This Way Comes was one I checked out all the time.

Seriously, if it wasn’t for my parents having all the books they did and encouraging me to read so much, I might have grown up hating it.

it must be really wild to actually have a positive relationship with your father



some people really have that????

that’s insane

The fact that there is a reason this post exists makes me sad.

3114 people doesn’t have postive relationship with their father - it’s really fucked up and I can’t even imagine how’s that

My daddy issues are so fucked up. I cry over fictional fathers, and then I rejoiced when my real father kicked the bucket.

Every single one of you needs to come over to my house and hang out with my dad you can have a positive relationship with us we’ll feed you and have water balloon fights and make you do your homework and he’ll tell you horrible dad jokes and embarrass you in public situations and pull reverse psychology on you and sit you down to give you the uplifting-yet-somehow-soul-crushing I Know You Can Do This speech and take you out for playing-hookey-days where you get pancakes with the family.
