i get really offended when someone doesnt sit next to me but im also relieved they didnt sit next to me
this is the most accurate thing i’ve ever read
If no one’s told you this recently, I want you to know that you’re beautiful.
You don’t need to lose weight, you don’t need to gain weight, you don’t need more make-up, you don’t need different clothes, you don’t need to hide the scars of your past. You are already so beautiful, just the way you are. You just need to realize that and freakin own it. I believe that you have a confidence deep within you and it’s time to let it loose.
one thing that really pushes my buttons is the ways in which teachers test students.
Today, in a discussion for my Political Economy of Development class, we had our first quiz.
5 questions, multiple choice.. easy, right?
Our TA told us that the quizzes would be composed of very basic questions to make sure we have done the readings.
At first I was very ecstatic about this news.. the quizzes would be very simple.
One glance at the quiz and my jaw dropped.
You’ve got to be kidding me.. I thought to myself.
How on earth does it make sense to quiz us on questions with little to no relevance at all?
“What was the book that the kids read to learn about America?”
a) harry potter
c) curious george
d) some other random children’s book
I thought that the quiz would be about important topics of the readings not random facts.
If we read…maybe we would know all of the minute details..but what good does that do if we don’t understand the conceptual meaning of it all?
Quizzes where you need to know all the tiny details are so stupid. It just doesn’t make sense because when I read, I usually take note of information that would be beneficial to know…
“What color was the curtain?”
