tj0323 replied to your post:I get to experience my first parent-teacher night…those are always fun… if they’re dumb just be like “I hope to see a lot of improvement” or something and if they’re talkative “your child is very enthusiastic and energetic during class”
yessss that sounds great and professional. i love it.
(better than saying “your child needs to calm their shit down”)
that’s what I get for writing 50 end-of-semester reports to parents lol
what’s hilarious though, is that the parents get what you’re trying to say too (especially if the kid is hyper/talkative/WON’T SHUT UP)
i really fuckin hate when people change the caption of my steve pic like why would you delete my comment
I thought you were talking about steve rogers for a split second… and then it hit me…
My students were talking about getting into college and about how they wanted to go into Ivy Leagues…
One little boy said “But getting into college is easy! You just need the three S’s! School, Social, and Sports! So I’m starting my swimming lessons in a month so I can go to MIT!”
Bless your little hearts…
My students are nine years old.
What if you could see leaves but not the actual tree?
Like there’d just be balls of leaves floating around but you’d still run into tree trunks
for someone who’s 70% water you don’t look very refreshing
water cannot be burned
actually, the essence of a burn is the water evaporating from your cells and dehydrating them, what you feel is the pain
if you blindfold someone and tell them you’re going to burn them and put an ice cube on their skin, they’ll think they’re being burned
so basically telling someone to evaporate is basically telling them to burn
So it’s been recently brought to my attention that some people don’t know that the lantern scene from Tangled actually happens irl every year during the Lantern Festival in Taiwan (or Republic of China).
These are called sky lanterns or 天燈 (which translates literally to sky lights) and usually, there are prayers or wishes written on these before they’re set loose.
It’s not just Taiwan either! Other countries do this as well and they come in different sizes too (although the ones I’ve traditionally seen are pretty big)!
