"I was an English teacher. The demands of the system required that I give out grades, but I never felt good about it. How do you grade someone’s writing? Writing is about revision. It’s about access to self. If a student writes a poem, and it’s the best they can do at the moment, how are you supposed to compare that to the student sitting next to them? How are you supposed to give one a 90, and one an 85?"

Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.

And it’s not subtle at all.Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

ALL OF THIS

Q

memory-lane10 asked:

Figuring out what I want to be when I grow up has been a challenge for me. How did you know that you wanted to be a Youtuber?

A

zoella:

I didn’t. I was the same as you, I had no idea what I wanted to do. It was probably the biggest struggle I had as a teen because I felt like everyone around me knew what they wanted to do. I did very creative subjects like art, textiles and photography and knew that those industries were hard to get into and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to be. My advice is to just try a bit of everything. If one day you think you want to manage a coffee shop, try it. If it doesn’t work out, try something new :) I think it’s better to have tried lot’s of different options that to be stuck in a job or career that you don’t enjoy :)

That time when Raven actually said what most of us want to say to a teacher who picks you for the answer when you clearly don’t know it, for usually no other reason than to embarrass you and make you look stupid. One of the main things I hate and always will hate about school.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.
