FINISH HIM

THIS WAS HER OPENING QUESTION.

That is the face of a man who has never been called on his bullshit.

ABC pulling out the big guns while they still have money to do so

That sound was the sound of her ripping his balls off and slamming them down on the table in front of him.

The small town Iowa coffeeshop at 1:30pm: Now featuring at least 3 bible studies (that I can see), 2 separate groups of middle schoolers on opposite ends of the store with individuals flitting back and forth between, and the entire high school volleyball team.

My 7 year old son was shot down by his 1st grade teacher

The american public education system in a nutshell tho

My third grade teacher actually had a conversation with my mom that I was reading to well and told her to stop having me read at home

My first grade teacher said that it was problematic that I was reading ahead of the rest of the kids in my grade and asked my parents to stop letting me read Harry Potter.
My fourth grade teacher thought it was wrong for my dad to be teaching me complex math because it fascinated me.
My elementary school music teacher hated the way my piano teacher taught me, and how I was more advanced than many of her students, and so told me, in front of my peers and my mother, that I was not good enough to participate in the state solo festival. She would not give me the form. We had to procure it from the district instead. She also hated how I excelled at reading and playing music for the recorder, and so she refused to give me my “belts” (colored beads to signify our level) and humiliated me in front of the class repeatedly.
My eighth grade algebra teacher used to fail me on take home tests because I didn’t solve problems exactly the way she showed us in class; I used methods that we had learned for other types of problems that also applied to these. She took points off my tests because I didn’t bring a calculator even though I got 100% without it, because I was able to do it by hand. I had to call my father, who is an engineer, down to the school to shout her down and give me back my A in the class.
My 10th grade Spanish teacher yelled at me in front of the class numerous times because she didn’t like the way I took notes; she thought that since I didn’t write every word off the slide, I wasn’t getting it all down. I had to explain to her that people who have taken advanced courses, like AP or IB classes, know that in a fast-paced learning environment you need to take quick shorthand notes that contain the necessary information rather than wasting time writing every word. She almost gave me detention.
My 11th grade English teacher gave me a poor mark on my first short essay because she believed that I was looking up unnecessarily complex words in a thesaurus to try and get better marks. The phrases in question: “laced with expletives” and “bombarded”. She wouldn’t hear any defense from me.
My 11th grade history teacher failed me on an essay about the 1950s because I misread the prompt. Except the prompt wasn’t words; it was a political cartoon. One of the figures was clearly president Eisenhower, but the other I couldn’t place. My teacher would not tell us who it was. I labelled him as the governor of Little Rock Arkansas during the integration period, and wrote an essay about that subject. My teacher said that no, it was Joseph McCarthy, and that there was a small picture of the man in our textbook and therefore I should have recognized him instantly. Half the class, apparently, did not.
The American school system is not here to educate us or to encourage us to learn; it’s here to keep us in line and silent. It’s here to keep us from deviating and being our own people and forming our own ideas. Don’t let it win.

"The American school system is not here to educate us or to encourage us to learn; it’s here to keep us in line and silent. It’s here to keep us from deviating and being our own people and forming our own ideas. Don’t let it win." 

Fun story time. I loved to read. So much so, I was reading chapter books in kindergarden. I broke the record for reading points in elementary school. They actually had to start making up prizes for me. No one in the history of the school had ever read so many books in a year. Basically, my class liked me because I won those suckers pizza parties in my spare time.
In second grade, I had a teacher named Ms. Mobley who believed all children should be average. She flat out told my father that all children should make C’s, and should never strive for more than that.
Not only was she insane, she also would routinely spell things wrong for us to copy for our spelling tests. Later, when we spelled those words wrong on the test, she would mark us off. Yes, our own teacher was sabotaging us.
I should have been tested for gifted classes, but I was not. Why? Ms. Mobley didn’t believe in “gifted” children.
This teacher had tenure and could not be fired.
Never forget.

when i was a child all my teachers all thought that i belonged in the Classes for slower learners when in reality, i already knew what they were teaching and i was just too bothered to do it again so i pretended to be really confused so that way they would slove the majority of my problems for me to show me how they worked when in reality i was basically bsing them because i was lazy and i got away wiht it.

For me I would bs the tests to figure out our reading level and than be in with the “average” kids and when I did better than them (this happened like 5 different times between Elementary school and Middle school) and they took me aside to the special ed department to get retested. One time I tested so poorly I had to go to special ed for half of the day because they thought I was challenged with the normal curriculum but than just talking to me they realized I bsed the tests and told me I should stop doing that.
This lead to me taking high level classes and even an AP class. But since I was so used to lower level stuff and being better at everyone else in those lower level classes I failed horribly.
Also, I had speech therapy in Elementary school because I am tongue tied (google it its a real thing) so I slurred my words when I talked. And they liked to take me out of MATH to go learn to talk properly. THUS WHY I SUCK AT SIMPLE MATH! I wasn’t there to learn multiplication. I was there like once during division. To make up for it I had to miss so many recesses to teach myself math. Like literally I was stuck in the hallway with a multiplications worksheet that no one explained to me how to do. I still just add 5 to itself 5 times when I see 5x5.
America… this is why we suck at college. We need a good basis in school BEFORE WE ARE EXPECTED TO GO TO COLLEGE AND BECOME ENGINEERS AND SHIT! This is why I have a hard time in College and why I didn’t graduate in the 4 years my peers did. Seriously this is coming up on my 5th year in college and I’m almost done with a 2 year degree (I went to a 4 year university for 2 1/2 years and for a year I’ve been at a community college)…

Okay so my kindergarten teacher had this bear system and she would send everyone home with either a pink, blue or yellow bear. Yellow meant you had a good day, blue meant some mishaps and red meant you were in some deep shit.
Now me, I was a good student. I knew my ABCS and 123s in both English and Spanish (I did kindergarten in Texas) before I even started school because my older siblings and parents taught me things I wanted to know. I was able to read at a 3rd grade level and everything was just GRAND. And I wasn’t that bad personality wise either. I was fairly popular among the other kids. I didn’t let anyone pick on anyone. I was a pretty good kid.
And my teacher would send me home with a red bear every god damn day. She said it was because I was “showing off”. She didn’t even do tests and evaluations in front of the other kids. She did them 100% one on one so that no one felt bad. And she made me feel bad for being smart. And because of that, throughout all of school I always thought being smart was useless so I just didn’t try and it fucked me over.

Hay all! It’s Dixie! Ya’ll know me, I don’t usually do comissions, but I was just left off the schedule at work for an entire week, then was ill and need to make up for that!

I mainly do human portraits and figures, but willing to try furry characters/OCs.

I am willing to do nudes but never of characters played by real people, or obviously children. Not a big fan or gore or guro, but can negotiate based on taste level. Tack on 10 bucks for anything naughty!

Any questions just hollar! Hope you’re having a good day. :)

Car’s gonna need to go into the shop, I need to go to the doctors. I wouldn’t be reblogging this if not for the fact that Red and Khaki Co. Is halving my hours to 20 a week. All above example types are not set in stone, I can also help with character designs, make altered books, paper dolls, etc.

We all need the cash, so I understand if you’re not in the market for some art, but just puttin’ it out there. And thanks for everyone who made the Comic-con SPG show so fun! It’s my last fun thing for a long time till I get back on my feet.
