WRONG. I used to think Tumblr was just a place full of endlessly reblogging photos of things I like, but now I've learned that it's a majestic place full of people whose ideas could seriously make up the government, they're that smart. Sure, Tumblr does have that whole fandom crap, but some of its text posts seriously speak to me. So I thought I'd dedicate this blog post to some of Tumblr's greatest text posts, both humorous and accurate. (Of course, being the grammar nazi I am, I edited these for spelling and punctuation and added all that but the content is the same so just enjoy iughiughtjh) I've also decided to include some images I found on Tumblr that were especially powerful to me.
It actually pisses me off so much that there’s the whole WORLD out there, yet I’m just going to school every day and learning things that I am - for the most part - completely apathetic towards and I have so little motivation, yet I could be off finding wonderful things in foreign cities or climbing mountains or helping people or just wandering, and I feel like I’d learn so much more doing that instead, really.
You know what totally sucks?
When you realize that you like somebody way more than they like you and even if it’s in a totally platonic way it still makes you feel awful because you’re probably just annoying them and how often you think of them is probably more than creepy.
But you know what totally sucks more?
When you realize this is your relationship with pretty much everyone.
There is a difference between people who are smart and people who get good grades.
I simultaneously want to sleep in bed forever and do everything in the world.
The funniest thing in the world is straight guys who hit on random women they don’t know but have this indignant fear that a gay man is going to hit on them
like, they’re aware of how uncomfortable unwanted advances from strangers are, but are somehow too stupid to see the irony that they do to women what they’re afraid gay men will do to them
bunch of A+ dudes
It’s actually really disturbing that kids falling asleep in school is viewed as them being lazy and not as the school overworking them to the point that they literally can’t stay awake.
It’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and I for one certainly didn’t sign up for that
What grades determine:
- Your ability to memorize mostly useless things
- Your ability to regurgitate information in the way others want you to
- Your ability to understand what adults want from you and give it to them
- Your tolerance for working on tasks you don’t find useful because others want you to do them or believe them to be helpful/socially acceptableWhat grades do NOT determine:
- Your intelligence
- Your creativity
- Your emotional capabilities
- Your likeliness to succeed
- Whether you’re a good person
How this seems to work
What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.

making fun of your kid for enjoying the things they enjoy is the quickest way to make them feel so completely isolated from you that they are more comfortable talking to strangers on the internet than you about their problems
Things I Never Learned in High School:
- How to do taxes
- What taxes are
- How to vote
- What political parties are
- How to write a resume/cover letter/anything related to getting a job
- How to write a check/balance a check book
- Anything to do with banking
- How to do loans for college
- How to jump start a car or other basic emergency things
- How to buy a car or house
but I’m so glad I know the fucking pythagorean theorem
(Male) straight privilege is heterosexual men being concerned that all gay men will make unsolicited sexual advances, whilst they themselves do so all the time towards women and never think anything of it.
NEED MONEY FOR COLLEGE
NEED COLLEGE FOR JOB
NEED JOB FOR MONEY
WHO THE FUCK DESIGNED THIS SYSTEM
I love how so many parents and teachers are still convinced that kids don’t want to go to school because they don’t like learning. It’s like no you dipshits it’s because high school environments are fucking toxic and make kids want to off themselves stop degrading their intelligence and blaming it on the kids when IT ISN’T THEIR FAULT.
you can’t spell education without education think about this for a second
“A psychiatrist once told me early in treatment, “Stop trying to make me like you,” and what a sobering and welcome smack in the face that statement was. Yet somehow, every day of my life is still a campaign for popularity, or better yet, a crowded funeral.”
