So basically this guy that I go to school with had to do a video about this academy called the CTE Academy, which is ridiculously far from our own and takes up three class periods, with you only earning one credit. He was told to make a video to promote this academy.
He made this.
This was about 823742 times better than I thought it would be
This is literally the best thing I’ve seen
Dear god, I’m crying.
this is the best video ever.
Inglenook Community High School, Toronto On
School Motto: “Subvert the dominant paradigm”
Mascot: Yin Yang symbol
“Often referred to as an alternative school, Inglenook’s focus is on alternative classes and an alternative environment, compared to that of a large public school, while staying within the guidelines and curriculum put forth by the school board. (full article)”
can everyone please read this because lol I graduated from here and it was pretty rad
i don’t think i’ve ever agreed with anything more than what this man is saying
watch this. seriously
yes yes yes yes yes
this is amazing
this guy is so sick
I needed this right now. Anyone taking finals needs this right now.
I’m about to turn 30. I could have been valedictorian when I graduated High School but I was too lazy to complete the forms. I have a Bachelor’s from DeVry, where I left with an average 3.2 carrying an average course load of 18 credit hours (peak 24, nadir 14). I also have an Associate’s from a local college, and I am Phi Theta Kappa there.
Here’s what I can tell you.
No employer has ever asked for my GPA. No employer ever gave a SHIT about my grades. DeVry only cared about my ACT score, and my Bachelor’s lost me jobs because I was “overqualified”. Now that I’m using my Associate’s, no one cares about my grades, or degree. My employer cares about A) my hours, B) my practical quals.
Unless you’re pushing for the Ivy League, no one is going to care about your grades. Ever. Amen. So I say to you this: 3.0 or above works for most but honestly, just get a good score on your ACT or SAT (and remember, you can retake it!). College is not a guarantee of a good life or even a paycheck. If anything it’s a near-guarantee of crippling debt.
THAT DOES NOT MEAN DO NOT GO, but for god’s sake do your research on your degree. Know what to expect. Colleges are marketing departments and will tell you sweet lies to get your money because college doesn’t care and won’t coddle you.
DO SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE. Find a way to make money in a way that you enjoy. It might not be the thing you enjoy most, but if you like it and it pays for what you enjoy most, well. That might be good enough.
Read. Travel. Take risks. Fuck up, try again. But enjoy it.
this dude is A++++
watch this watch this watch this watch this watch this this is everything I believe about our backwards education system and more watch this watch this watch this watch this
I’m not even in high school, but I know that I’m going to university.
I find it amusing that I’m going to have to pay over five thousand dollars for a year at university that is supposed to get me degrees for more jobs and KNOWLEDGE.
This is a part of the reason why I have a degree and a masters in what is essentially, how to write stories with a smattering of how to write articles and reviews. I like stories, I like reading them, watching them and creating them myself. So I studied that. I work in retail because I enjoy it most of the time, and while my employers have always found my qualifications interesting, they’ve never cared about my grades.
our biology teacher brought a skeleton to class yesterday and now everyone’s treating it as if it’s a part if our class i’m going to
THIS COMMERICAL TAKES LIKE THE BIGGEST TURN FOR THE WORST EVER AND I DON’[T LIKE IT
OH MY GOD
YOU GUYS THIS IS AN ACTUAL COMMERCIAL
Welp, i disagree. I liked the video. I think it made my day oh my god.
I am fairly certain this is the best thing ever.
Oh my god.
Teachers. I love you when you love your kids, and I wish the system wasn’t rigged to make you all hate your jobs.
Wuv ya teachers!
They’re so underappreciated. Yay teachers!
Original story/comic I’ve been wanting to put out for “Mother’s Day” or “Like a Mother’s Day”
Because I usually spend every mother’s day going on and on about “OMG I LUV MY MOM U GUISE”, and not everyone has a mom?? Or has pleasant experiences with said mom?
This is just omg.
men should take advantage of the lack of dress code rules set for guys and wear mini skirts and tank tops to school every day
OH MY GOD LAST YEAR THE DUDES ON MY CLASS HAVE DONE IT
AND THEY GOT ALL CALLED IN THE PRINCIPAL’S ROOM
BUT THEY DIDNT GOT IN TROUBLE BECAUSE
THEY SAID EXACTLY IT “BUT THOSE RULES ARE ONLY FOR GIRLS”
I’M NOT EVEN JOKING
So I got sent to the dean today for wearing this top. My study tech teacher said that I was “exploiting” myself and that it could be a distraction to the other students. I got up out of my seat and told her that I wasn’t going to listen to her dress codes. In a way, she was being misogynist and slut shaming and I think that’s wrong. I will continue to wear what I want and nobody can tell me not to. The fact that womens bodies are sexualized and objectified so much angers me and that’s the reason why this happened. I’m going to wear what I want, how I want, when I want and that’s it.
I was there, reblog the shit out of this guys
