Yeah that’s right.
I made those papers my bitch.
do all american high school parties actually have those red plastic cups or is this a lie created by the movies
This has had like 65,000 notes and NO-ONE has answered
do american cheerleaders actually wear their uniforms to class?
To the first question, Yes, most actually do have the red plastic cups. They’re called Solo Cups, and there’s actually a country song about it. This trend doesn’t stop at High School parties or bonfires though, it follows you to college and adult hood as Solo cups are still found at most family cookouts, barbecues, and other large get-togethers.
American Cheerleaders do wear their uniforms to class/school, but only on Game Days, which are normally on Friday, and this is only true at some schools. But the uniforms aren’t nearly as scandalous as they’re portrayed in media, usually.
CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS?
I mean, can we just talk about how this parallels the actual education system? Where they’re so concerned about teaching us things like logarithms and graphing that we don’t know shit about what’s actually out there in the adult world, like doing taxes or writing checks or anything? I mean, “It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient to get you through your examinations, which after all, is what school is all about.” School children are often under the impression that getting A’s in all their classes ensures a successful future, but really, it’s so ignorant because the real world isn’t just one big question-and-answer paper. There is so much more to the world than being able to give back information like some kind of super-computer, and brainwashing children into thinking that theory is key is just going to lead to a bunch of children falling flat on their faces when they’re pushed into the adult world and feel as if everything new they try to do is wrong because it wasn’t taught to them step-by-step. I just really love Harry’s line, “And how is theory supposed to prepare us for what’s out there?” because I feel as if sometimes we just learn things for the sake of knowing them, despite whether it is actually useful. Yes, school is important, and getting bad grades isn’t a good way to start your future, but it’s so much more than that, you see.
While I would rather this afternoon in bed with my heating pad be spent in London with Sherlock and John, exploring the universe with The Doctor, driving around in the Impala, or going back home to Hogwarts, I guess spending it reading The Essential Adam Smith will have to do.
I don’t like being an adult.
Hopefully it’ll go as well as my core class yesterday went.
Wish me luck!
Also: WTF GEORGIA, I’m sick of this rain. Cut the shit out.
