Adorable awkward Zuko.
THAT’S TOUGH BUDDY
George R. R. Martin everyone.
My favourite thing about this gifset is that George R. R. Martin acknowledges both of these methods without insulting or dismissing the other. He is a fantastic writer and I know that some other fantastic writers swear by their methods and discount the others, which can be really disheartening as a young writer. Hearing him describe both of these methods without dismissing the other makes me very, very happy, as I am very much an architect and I always get so sad when every writer I look up to is like “NO PLANNING. PLANNING BAD. WRITERS DONT PLAN.”
So thank you, Mr. Martin.
Isn’t Mulan’s “quotation” wrong though?
I still want all of them.
Both the Emperor and Mulan’s father compare her to a flower that is ‘the most beautiful of all’.
For the Emperor, he says “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”
And then when Mulan and her father are sitting under the cherry blossom tree and he points out that one hasn’t blossomed yet and he says that when it does, he bets it will be the most beautiful of all.
I rather wish they’d included the word “flower,” though - it appears to take on such a different meaning without it.
Guys I’m like 600% sure Peter Capaldi is just a grumpy owl.
You could say that he’s…Doctor Hoo.
Omfg you did not
Shih Tzu down, Shiih Tzu down…… turkey overload!!!
[Disclaimer: slightly atrocious grammar in here. I promise my academic writing is far more impressive.]
Next year, I could:
A) Try to get a job in Canada. Probably Alberta.
B) Get a job in Korea/somewhere else abroad. (But probably Korea.)
Option A = Canadian teaching experience (more applicable in terms of teaching in Canada forever). Alberta pays quite well; thus, I could chip away at those pesky student loans. HOWEVER: I’d not get much of a chance to travel/have new experiences, which I am aching for, tbh.
OPTION B = pretty good money, relevant experience if I can teach in an international school, the chance to travel, and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for YEARS.
BUT. (There’s always a but.)
Doing a year or two in Canada could open doors to teach in the Middle East, where the big bucks (remember: student loans!) appear to be, since they require (usually) several years of experience (usually in a Canadian, American, or British curriculum, as far as I can tell - so teaching ESL, for example, wouldn’t be much of a help there). But if I do that, then I run the risk of “settling” or getting “stuck” and if there’s anything I fear, it’s not being able to do all the things I truly want to do.
I know what I want to do. But how to do it?
when will america learn….
We won’t learn, because our education system sucks
Instead of treating kids like machines in a factory, being created into obedient workers. It looks like in Finland they’re treated like actual humans.
it’s also because all teachers there have masters’ degrees, and teaching is seen as a prestigious profession like medicine or law.
What’s actually wrong with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
What’s wrong with American schools is that they’re an outdated relic of the early 20th century, where the object was to train a child to have the mindset required to work in a factory job long hours of the day, as at the time that mandatory public school was instituted, that was the main expectation of children.
As the industrial age faded and the US entered the era of private sector jobs, the education system failed to reflect that change, and they’re still training us to have the mindset for an industrial job, not a job in today’s job market.
The problem with American schools is not that they’re not like Finnish schools.
The problem with American schools is that they’re preparing us for jobs that no longer exist.
That bold text.. 😔
- peeta was abused by his mother
- his entire family died in the bombing
- he was hijacked and made to hate the one person he had left that he loved
- he overcame all this bullshit and lived the rest of his life with katniss and their two children
yet people still say “peeta is weak”
