fuuuuuck people from my year in high school are already becoming famous make it stop
I feel old already
on the other hand it turns out that the ny neo futurists did a play consisting entirely of eugene o’neill’s stage directions and I bet that was actually good
they’re probably good if you don’t take them seriously but ugh
am I the only one who kinda wants to slap eugene o’neill while reading his stage directions?
(I’m gonna start skipping the stage directions)
dtf like caillou: I left my heart in San Francisco
I absolutely hate Tony Bennett.
Not his songs. No. I just hate that he was and still is right: People do leave their hearts in San Francisco after all.
I left Mexico 5 years ago to come to San Francisco and attend school. I had been several times in the US before and…
let us have a moment of silence for those who unknowingly dated and broke up with a future celebrity

"After spending all day in school, our children are forced to begin a second shift, with more academic assignments to be completed at home. This arrangement is rather odd when you stop to think about it, as is the fact that few of us ever do stop to think about it.
Instead of assuming that homework should be a given, or that it allegedly benefits children, I’ve spent the last few years reviewing the available research and talking to parents, teachers and students. My findings can be summarized in seven words: Homework is all pain and no gain.
The pain is obvious to kids but isn’t always taken seriously by adults. Backpacks stuffed with assignments leave students exhausted, frustrated, less interested in intellectual pursuits and lacking time to do things they enjoy. “Most of what homework is doing,” says literacy expert Harvey Daniels, “is driving kids away from learning.”
We parents, meanwhile, turn into nags. After being away from our children all day, the first words out of our mouths, sadly, may be: “So, did you finish your homework?” One mother told me it permanently damaged her relationship with her son because it forced her to be an enforcer rather than a mom.
The surprising news, though, is that there are virtually no pros to balance the cons. Even if you regard grades or test scores as good measures of learning, which I do not, doing homework has no statistical relationship to achievement in elementary school. In high school, some studies do find a correlation between homework and test scores, but it’s usually fairly small. And in any case, it’s far from clear that the former causes the latter. And if you’re wondering, not a single study has ever supported the folk wisdom that homework teaches good work habits or develops positive character traits such as self-discipline, responsibility or independence."

Shit I knew in school but was unable to articulate.
apparently fox news specified for their confused viewers at home that “chechens are not caucasian”, which is perhaps the most succinct summary of why it’s a stupid term I have ever seen in my life
