Well I completely missed my first class
And was ten minutes late for my second class (bus was really slow for some reason)
But oh well both are boring classes useless classes (I might drop them since the only use for those classes is to get the degree, and since I’m not, might as well save time)
Bleh something’s wrong with my stomache today
Hopefully when I get to the dorm and cook food it’ll settle down
Shit I slept pass my second alarm and class started half an hour ago
The strength of the Ferguson community in the face of the war zone the police have created is truly a thing of beauty.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
this is so cool *___*

I don’t know where you guys live, but all the schools I’ve been to promoted individuality and higher learning. I would…
Okay I lived in California. In kindergarten I was kept away from books because we…
I live in Upstate New York. In kindergarten my teachers didn’t like that I was reading at a 3rd grade level. They told my parents that I need to be reading books meant for my age. They also didn’t like that I knew cursive before I started school.
In 1st and 2nd grade we had to read at home everyday and we were sent home forms to sign to prove that we read for a certain amount of time. At the end of each month if we had all the days signed we’d get ice cream. They refused to let me participate because they didn’t believe a seven year old could read multiple, small chapter books (about 10 chapters each) in one night. This continued until about 3rd grade where they let me participate but they gave me books to read, I wasn’t allowed to rad the ones I wanted to. At some point the put me in extra classes, the ones for kid who need a little extra help with school work, because they thought the pace of those classes would encourage me to slow down and stay with the pace of the school.
In 4th and 5th grade I was constantly failed in reading because they didn’t believe I read any of the books they gave me when it came to having to write reports about the book. They thought I copied all the info straight from the book, even when I’d do the work in front of them.
7th and 8th grade, among the bullying that the school refused to take care and told me it was my problem to deal with, I started purposefully missing school because of it. I’d still maintain above average grades though, except in science. Whenever I did go in my science teacher would belittle me in front of class. I remember a few times I would be out for a month and when I’d go back I’d have to take tests in science. The teacher put me in the back of the room during regular classes to take these test. I’d get passing grades each time, according to another teacher that I’d show the work to after. but my science teacher would tell me “There no way you could have gotten anything above a 50. You miss too much school and know nothing” so she’d give me failing grades. When this was brought up to the school board they did nothing. I had IQ tests done at some point and the person who did it told the school that I don’t need any extra classes for help and that my level of knowledge put a grade higher and that I shoulder been moved up one grade. The school refused to do it because it wouldn’t be fair to other kids my age. The held me back one year.
I went to a different school during 9th, 10th, and most of 11th grade. This school was beyond amazing. It was at the local psychiatric center. They let each student work at their own level and changed the kids work based on how well they did. I got work that wasn’t too easy but challenged me enough. I was able to read multiple books at once for projects if I wanted to, so long as I finish the specific book for the project. They let me finish all my work as fast as I wanted to. I was able to get an entire school days worth of work done usually before noon. They didn’t hold anyone back and they were more than willing to help if needed one on one if needed and would change the work depending on how easily we could do it. None of the work was dumbed down or made easier, it was all the work you’d get in a regular school setting.
11th grade I was back at the high school I went to before. They put me in as many classes that were meant to give extra help to student who struggled because they thought all the grades I had gotten while in the school at the psych center was dumbed down and made easy. My social teacher would tell his classes that we were worthless. If we managed to graduate high school and go to college he said we HAD to pick a major that society wanted us to pick. He told all the girls in the class that we couldn’t get jobs because there was nothing that called for a woman’s work. Told us that so long as we had a man we’d be set, he’d do the work and we could stay home. This social teacher also never even taught social, he talked about how he worked in the military and his personal life, along with belittling all his students and constantly yelling at us. This was the year I dropped out.
I started up home classes for my GED shortly after dropping out. The school limited the work my teacher brought to the house because they didn’t want me to “finish the work too early” . It went well. At one point I tried getting into some schooling to learn a trade. I wanted to cook. But the school refused to let me go to the classes because I wasn’t physically in the school and I wasn’t doing the same work as the other kids. They continued to let other people my age, working on their GED to go to the classes though.
The fact that I dropped out has people thinking I’m stupid. I’ve lost friends from dropping out of school as well. I absolutely LOVE learning and going to the alternate schooling during 9th grade proved I did wonderful in school and it showed me that I could love going to school for the fist time in my life. But the main school district refused to believe it and stuck me in classes that weren’t meant for me and wouldn’t let me go to the classes that I should have and wanted to be in because they couldn’t make up their mind in think I was too stupid for them or not wanting my classmates to feel stupid. The IQ tests I had done showed that my classifications was in the “very superior”. this isn’t to brag. This is to show what one of many schools will and currently do.. Not all schools do this, but too many that do in fact do this get away with it. All this isn’t even half of what my schools did to me to try and get me to believe I was worthless and stupid. What they did resulted in so many problem throughout my teens and childhood.
this makes me so fucking mad.
fucking shit i cant

I do wanna say, plz be careful of folks & “donations.” The only verified are #OperationHelpOrHush and the GoFundMe for #MikeBrown’s family.
Scrolling tumblr and seen 3 “donation” requests from ppl/outfits never heard of through 9 days of tweeting. #Ferguson]
that donation going around to feed ferguson children, i’m 100% skeptical, a woman named Julianna is collecting funds I think, and it exceeded $15K, i really hope it’s legit

like I would like to be more personally involved you know?

Anonymous said: What do you think about school? Meaning would you go to college for your art or rather choose an institute mainly based around that.
