Japanese child actress Mana Ashida (little Mako) was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.

one of the things i miss from catholic school is being able to wear thigh-highs on a regular basis without worrying about what to match them with

like

bam

walkin around like “no one can criticize how i wear my thigh highs because we’re all wearing the same uniform”

what if enjolras was reaped and combeferre and grantaire yelled “i volunteer” at the same time like what would happen

courfeyrac screams “i volunteer”, tears in his eyes when he sees combeferre walking up the stairs, and then jehan yells the same. and bahorel. and feuilly joins. and then bossuet and joly take each other’s hands and volunteer in unison. and enjolras doesn’t know if he should scream “stop” or “no”, but eventually he settles for “i volunteer” along with his friends and that’s how the whole district starts to rebel before the games even start.

probably they all get shot on the spot b/c this is les mis what do you expect

"I read the whole series in less than two days, and now can’t separate the events of individual books" the thrilling sequel

There is no inbetween.

My Costumer taught me his bitter song, and it is guaranteed to make you feel better, especially if sang with a group of people joining in. So I thought I’d share it for any of you who might need it

If you’re bitter and you’re jaded clap your hands

If you’re bitter and you’re jaded clap your hands

If you’re bitter and sadistic and about to go balistic

If you’re bitter and you’re jaded clap your hands

Well somebody finally gets it!

Every school should be like mine: four hours a day, three time slots you can attend (morning at 8, afternoon at 12, evening at 5), online classes in case you miss a day, english and math direct instruction, bus stop close by, you can graduate early if you want, you can switch time slots if you need to, and they respect if you have a mental disorder/want to be addressed by a different name or by diff pronouns. You can listen to music, too, and everyone is super chill. Small classes where everyone minds their own business and gets their work done. That is how school should be.



…. OR
Heres an idea!
Go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn, and you lot are whining about “SCHOOLS UNFAIR  CHANGE LESSON TIMES”


Alright buddy i’m gonna need you to sit the fuck down because i’m gonna lay some shit on you. I’m sure you had a great time in high school or college since you had the nerve to tell everybody to go to bed at a reasonable time. I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but maybe the reason why we don’t go to bed at a reasonable hour is because we can’t? WOW SHOCKING I KNOW. 
Now I don’t know what high school was like for everyone else but for me it was fucking hell. During my senior year in high school i had over 3 hours worth of homework everyday. I get off school at 8 pm because of after school extra classes. I get home at around 9:30 and shower and it’s already 11. Well better do my homework if I want to pass this class!!! Time sure does fly when I do homework because wow it’s 3 am already. Time to finally sleep because wow humans need to sleep to have a healthy mind???? And then DING it’s 6am better wake up for school to start this routine all over again for the next 10 months. Over the span of my high school life I had over 10 emotional break downs and depression because of school. Shocking right? School can actually make some people sad and angry.
How the fuck would you feel if you were crammed in a classroom with over 40 students learning the same thing except you couldn’t understand shit so you had to study extra hard and spend more time on your homework than everyone else? Terrible right. Not everybody breezed thru school like you did. 
School is different for everybody and everybody’s stress levels are different. Some schools give a fuck ton of homework while some don’t. Some people had fun in school and some didn’t. And I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but some people actually work after school. Wow students making a living to support their family that’s fucking crazy I didn’t even know that was possible. And don’t even get me started on AP students.
“Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn,” Are you seriously comparing us to our ancestors which we had nothing to do with? WHO GIVES A SHIT. DID THEY HAVE OVER 8 HOURS OF SCHOOL? NO. DID THEY HAVE THE STRESS OF NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR FUTURE? PROBABLY. BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE WORKED HARDER THAN THEM, WE HAVE A TOUGHER LIFE, ADULTS EXPECT US TO AMOUNT TO SOMETHING BUT WILL WE? WE DON’T KNOW. WE HAVE MORE STRESS ON OUR MINDS THAN A PSYCHOPATH WITH A MENTAL DISORDER. AND YET WE’RE STILL LIVING, BREATHING AND WORKING HARD SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT GOING TO BED AT A REASONABLE HOUR BECAUSE WE FUCKING CAN’T.

HOLY SHIT THANK YOUthank you SO MUCH //applause

ALSO DINOSAURS WERE LONG EXTINCT BEFORE HUMANS EXSISTED

My best friend and I both got decent grades but were polar opposites when it came to homework/studying.
I was in the “good amount of sleep takes priority over anything” camp. But still, gotta do that homework, on top of extracurricular activities (and those are important to building up a resume in our college-hyped society so don’t you think of telling me “oh just quit one.”) So I mapped out this complex system of when I would have free time the next day to get homework done in different classes; finish a test early in chemistry, okay, I can do my English homework then. I can do my Spanish homework during a lecture in English, then I can cram in some other homework right before choir, etc etc etc. It got me by but damn, it was stressful, and if that schedule got fucked up, it got fucked up. And I mean. Good luck concentrating in English if you’re doing your SPanish homework throughout.
"So just do it the night before!" This is where my best friend comes in. She was willing to sacrifice sleep for good grades. She would be up till four in the morning doing homework and studying. She’d get to school the next day unable to concentrate on anything in class, spending what added up to a big amount of money on coffee, and getting sick all the time.
And yet, we got good grades.
We were both absolutely miserable, anxious, and depressed. We were convinced we were stupid, since getting decent grades was such a struggle.
And we should NOT have had to choose between,
A) An overwhelming, complex system making it necessary to cram two subjects’ worth of material into one class
B) Not being able to concentrate, period, and having zero free time or energy throughout the day.
-especially when both of those entail a sacrifice of mental and physical well-being.
We fucking dare to call these healthy learning environments when student after student is forced to navigate this maze.
How fucking presumptuous is it to act like there’s an easy way for the STUDENT ALONE to solve this.
