“No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom.” If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.”—President Barack Obama (via freelanceof-art)
This relates to other instances of people inflicting their religion on others…I won’t stand for it.
I’m seeing a major conflict of interest here and I’m not exactly sure I’m okay with it. Ah so fucking tired of all the letdowns these days. Quick, give me some good news before I declare 2012 my worst year yet.
lies in receiving that first notification of admission. it feels so amazing to know that a school wants me. i know it’s not like my first choice or anything but it’s nice to know i am going to college no matter what else happens in the future. (:
Ironically, I just stumbled upon this while studying for my English final...
Are English Classes Totally Worthless?
I recently read a SparkLife post all about the Glorious Classics, and I couldn’t help but think how much I hate/abhor/detest/loath the study of Literature. It’s stupid, vague, arbitrary, and useless! As someone who has loved reading and writing for as long as he can remember, you’re probably wondering why I think English is such a lame subject. Well, lemme tell you:
Reason #1: I dare you to name another non-elective course that teaches you to have a specific opinion about entertainment. Math? Fact. Science? Fact. History? Faccct. Yet when a teacher shoves Hawthorne, Shakespeare, or Fitzgerald in my face, I’m required to read it, to study it, and to like it. Sorry if I don’t learn a whole lot from pointlessly induced boredom.
Reason #2: You don’t learn anything from English class after 8th Grade. At least in our primary school years we were taught about spelling, grammar, words, sentences, punctuation, verbs, and oxford commas. Now all we get is an opinion of The Great Gatsbyshoved down our throats with an emphasis on symbols, allusions, themes, and narration.
Sure, reading is important and if you don’t like it you are probably unintelligent anyways, but when is the study of books ever going to help us? Reading is fun, I’m not arguing that. Analyzing the themes in a novel? Yeah, pretty fun too. But spending a year researching and discussing the literary devices in writing is so pointless. If you want me to learn how to portray a theme of religious hypocrisy by overusing the hell out of imagery and foreshadowing, then assign a creative writing assignment! Don’t make me read The Scarlet Letter so that I can see how someone else would do it! That’s like giving me the answer!
Reason #3: I don’t care if King Lear has “literary merit”; just because Shakespeare was able to convey his themes with original and clever methods doesn’t mean that that the story is interesting. Excuse me if I would rather read about some Freaking-Awesome Trio Of Wizards than a greedy old man whose shortsighted decisions have negative consequences for him and the people he loves. That doesn’t make me any less intelligent than the drama fans out there.
—-a kid who represents a lot of us out there.
Look, I love reading. I even like English class to some extent. Reading and discussing good books is super rewarding and interesting, but then when I have to take a test on something that is not solely a test on plot, I just don’t understand how to study for it, how to know which question is right, etc. I can always convince myself of certain answers but they end up being wrong. Why? Why am I encouraged to form my own interpretations of novels and then marked off for incorrect answers? So don’t abolish the English class, abolish the stupid multiple choice tests!
1. “darron, i think the graph just got cut off.” ”i think your face just got cut off.” oh…
2. “darron, why are you wiping your lips on the water bottle?” ”because the petroleum jelly got on the bottle and i want it back!”
3. “you sound like a girl when you say that.” ”darron, i am a girl…” ”oh…” -__-
4. “i swallowed a fly yesterday. because addy told me to.”
also, he’s obsessed with lady gaga and made me watch the marry the night music video which was like 14 minutes long. the best part was…while i was watching, he finished his math worksheet by himself. i should slack off more often.
