"His grandmother and I are raising him. I worry about putting him into the public school system. I was a teacher for many years. I’ve seen so much confidence destroyed by the standardized system. Every human is born with natural curiosity. I’ve never seen a child who wasn’t inspired. But once you force someone to do anything, the inspired person is killed. I dropped out of school myself in 7th grade. So I know. I taught a GED course for years, so I’ve seen the end results over and over. I’ve seen so many kids who have complexes and insecurities because they were forced to do something they weren’t ready to do, and then they were blamed when they weren’t able to do it. What we call ‘education’ today is not organic. You can’t take something as complex as the human mind, compartmentalize it, and regiment its development so strictly."

    When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.

    One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”

    kmalleena:

    Hello.

    Yes, you. The one in the shiny silver SUV, red-faced and angry at my normal, neutral announcement:

About

I'm new to this tumblr thing but it seems like a wonderful way to express one's self so here goes nothing.

I'm a second year college student with a love for music, reading, nature, human rights, computer games, and lots of other things.

I do not know if I have a hobby or some common activity people relate to but I'm really into yoga, the Sims franchise (loving Sims medieval right now!), and attempting healthier, greener living.
