"Just leave Pluto behind"
WE COULD LEAVE YOU BEHIND
Well somebody finally gets it!
Every school should be like mine: four hours a day, three time slots you can attend (morning at 8, afternoon at 12, evening at 5), online classes in case you miss a day, english and math direct instruction, bus stop close by, you can graduate early if you want, you can switch time slots if you need to, and they respect if you have a mental disorder/want to be addressed by a different name or by diff pronouns. You can listen to music, too, and everyone is super chill. Small classes where everyone minds their own business and gets their work done. That is how school should be.
Heres an idea!
Go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn, and you lot are whining about “SCHOOLS UNFAIR CHANGE LESSON TIMES”
Alright buddy i’m gonna need you to sit the fuck down because i’m gonna lay some shit on you. I’m sure you had a great time in high school or college since you had the nerve to tell everybody to go to bed at a reasonable time. I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but maybe the reason why we don’t go to bed at a reasonable hour is because we can’t? WOW SHOCKING I KNOW.
Now I don’t know what high school was like for everyone else but for me it was fucking hell. During my senior year in high school i had over 3 hours worth of homework everyday. I get off school at 8 pm because of after school extra classes. I get home at around 9:30 and shower and it’s already 11. Well better do my homework if I want to pass this class!!! Time sure does fly when I do homework because wow it’s 3 am already. Time to finally sleep because wow humans need to sleep to have a healthy mind???? And then DING it’s 6am better wake up for school to start this routine all over again for the next 10 months. Over the span of my high school life I had over 10 emotional break downs and depression because of school. Shocking right? School can actually make some people sad and angry.
How the fuck would you feel if you were crammed in a classroom with over 40 students learning the same thing except you couldn’t understand shit so you had to study extra hard and spend more time on your homework than everyone else? Terrible right. Not everybody breezed thru school like you did.
School is different for everybody and everybody’s stress levels are different. Some schools give a fuck ton of homework while some don’t. Some people had fun in school and some didn’t. And I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but some people actually work after school. Wow students making a living to support their family that’s fucking crazy I didn’t even know that was possible. And don’t even get me started on AP students.
“Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn,” Are you seriously comparing us to our ancestors which we had nothing to do with? WHO GIVES A SHIT. DID THEY HAVE OVER 8 HOURS OF SCHOOL? NO. DID THEY HAVE THE STRESS OF NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR FUTURE? PROBABLY. BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE WORKED HARDER THAN THEM, WE HAVE A TOUGHER LIFE, ADULTS EXPECT US TO AMOUNT TO SOMETHING BUT WILL WE? WE DON’T KNOW. WE HAVE MORE STRESS ON OUR MINDS THAN A PSYCHOPATH WITH A MENTAL DISORDER. AND YET WE’RE STILL LIVING, BREATHING AND WORKING HARD SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT GOING TO BED AT A REASONABLE HOUR BECAUSE WE FUCKING CAN’T.
HOLY SHIT THANK YOU
thank you SO MUCH //applause
ALSO DINOSAURS WERE LONG EXTINCT BEFORE HUMANS EXSISTED
my school is p liberal too, we dont have any other adults except for teachers, and students are the ones to do everything in the school (clean up, make food, do the paperwork, etc). we don’t have to go to any class we don’t want to go, we choose our classes and what we will study, and everyone is pretty chill. i’m out as trans at school for the first time ever and so far no one has questioned me and everyone’s been very chill. think that’s what school should be like. i’ll make a post about it someday.
So to enlighten abroad students about italian high schools as well:
School in Italy is not any different from those abroad. I used to wake up at 6 AM to get ready and get to school at 8 AM to start the day. Five hours per day. And they used to give us so much homework that my usual sleeptime was around 3 AM.
3 hours of sleep a night.
And oh, wait, I forgot: in Italy, grades are on a scale from 1 to 10, where 10 is the best you can get. Scoring a 10 in an italian high school is like getting a space shuttle ride with Lady Gaga, so nearly impossible.
To pass the year, you need to score at least 6 in all the subjects. ALL OF THEM. If you get a 5 or less in at least one, you are very likely to fail the year. If they’re two, BAM dude, you’re ruined.
Classtests and oral tests are everyday, every week, every month. And let’s not mention surprise tests.
In my old high school, we studied Maths, Italian, Latin, Philosophy, History, Art History, English and english literature as well, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, and had PE as well. And ho, since we are a country that is actually ruled by a White dressed man praying from a window in a square in Rome, we had Religion as well.
I used to get daily punching and kicking by some very generous guys, because they suspected I was gay.
There was not a single openly gay person in the whole school. And we were 900 students. And if you just so mentioned gay friendly ideas, you’d automatically be labeled as a “gay sinner” or whatever they addressed us with.
This year, for reasons, I changed high school.
And guess what?
Now, italian schools offer the widest knowledge possible, and professors are incredibly clever people who know basically anything and teach by heart, not by books.
For fries’ sake, we learn latin as if it was a common Language, and ancient greek as well.
But don’t dare question the stress levels students must undergo.
Sometimes I just think a pshycologist would give up on cases like these.
Schools are the most stressing places of all. It’s like drowning endlessly and you just won’t die.
So please, simple solutions like “just go to bed earlier” can be avoided.
Because we don’t need to sleep more (well of course we do), but first we may need to not feel like we are going to be humiliated and put under useless pressure everytime we enter a classroom.
It’s scares me that only 16,000 people know what this is
wtf is this some kind of choclat bar
This object has killed over 400,000 people
oh my god.
WE’RE THE OLD ONES NOW
I own a lot of these …
I’m not even that old and I know what it is and how to use it.
trying to argue with someone over text is like being italian and having to talk with handcuffs on
I am Italian and I can say this is 100% true.
sermisty SAVE THIS GIF WE ARE GONNA NEED IT SO MUCH OMG
