  • I’ll forever be pissed at my schools (American Public) for convincing me that College was impossible. I struggled through High School so badly due to mental illness and the horribly toxic and controlling environment, and they convinced me that college would be so much worse. They convinced me that I would not be able to handle college.

    So I didnt seek out scholarships. I didnt apply for help or seek out anything. I ignored it all because I genuinely believed that I would waste a ton of money just so I could drop out due to incompetence.

    And now some of my friends are in college. Friends who struggled in school. And its easier. It’s so much easier for them than HS. I listened to my teachers, and now I’m out of bounds.

    I wanted to die in High School, they convinced me that College would be a nightmare. I’m pissed. Maybe I’m a coward for not trying, but who the hell jumps into a lake without knowing how to swim?

    So now I’m behind. And I don’t think I’m the only one.

  • Getting anxiety about a potential new job at an elementary school as an ABA. Its the whole waiting thing. whether its good or bad news i get anxiety from waiting for the news. Trying to be hopeful about it. Moving on to bigger and better things. If things go well might try to go back to school for more certifications.

  • Did your middle school have a group of boys who were obsessed with communism, kept the communist flag on their lockers, played the soviet union’s anthem every morning, and pledged allegiance to communist China every morning, or was that just me?

  • Today I apologized to my afternoon students because the place value chart I drew for their math lesson had some major crooked lines. I told them I had made a better one with my morning friends. Without missing a beat, one of my students looks me in the eye and says “It’s okay we can’t all be straight.”

    EXCUSE ME KID BUT WHAT GAVE IT AWAY?!

  • It’s crazy to me how many parents are just now realizing that their kids aren’t lying when they say their teachers are power hungry and enjoy exercising control over their students way beyond what is healthy or necessary, because of online classes. They’ll come home ranting every day about how their boss has it out for them, but when their kid says the teacher or the principal is abusing their authority, the kid is always, always lying.

    I have PCOS and am hypoglycemic, two issues that caused me endless misery in school. It means that my periods are insanely painful, unpredictable, and heavy, and that if I don’t eat something small every hour on the hour, my blood pressure dives and I get the shakes, feel sick, and can pass out. The number of times a teacher would force me to sit in class as I bled through my clothes rather than let me take a two minute bathroom break… The number of times I would literally faint at my desk because my family couldn’t afford to pay for cafeteria lunch, and I wasn’t allowed to eat snacks in class… I would literally get written up for losing consciousness due to low blood sugar. My parents said I was lying, my guidance councilor said I was lying. It was a major factor in me choosing to drop out of school. Being forced to sit in hunger, covered in your own menstrual blood, routinely, for years at a time… Was mentally fucking devastating. Looking back, it was psychological and physical abuse. And there was no reason other than the teacher “keeping control of the classroom.”

    Long story short, a lot of people in education think their job is to police and control your children, and then blame the kid when they can’t learn. And yall aren’t ready for that fucking conversation.

  • Another fun story from the only out lesbian at my high school:

    In biology class my sophomore year a dude, who knew I was gay, was talking homophobic shit like: “Gay people are so gross.” “They better not crush on me.” “I’d punch a gay guy in the face.”

    BUT THEN HE SAYS

    “But lesbians are okay.”

    LIKE SIR, I JUST LEARNED TOO MUCH ABOUT WHAT PORN YOU WATCH. STAHP.

    But, on the bright side, I bribed him to be less homophobic by letting him cheat off my gas ass in Kahoot. ✌

  • Shoutout to my absolute favorite history teacher who said that if a shooter came he would use his “old, fat body” to plug up the doorway and absorb the bullets and then he would take out his bat from behind the door, kill the shooter, die, and let us escape by running over his dead body.

    We paid tribute to him by offering him various Peppa Pigs and he taped them up all over his classroom.

    Oh. My. God. Look at this shit. And teachers wonder why the kids misbehave. It’s because they 9/10 have parents with this mentality. Disrespectful. Terrible people.

  • I have come to think about the issues in my life to frequently (and yet still have the ability to think of other things) that I feel they are mundane and not big a deal enough to feel the way I do about them. But I’ve just now realized that… no these issues are probably really dramatic and that’s probably the reason why other people make big deals about when they had them and why I feel like complete shit right now!!
