Weather Today: Slightly Sarcastic
Imagine high school without valedictorians, cramming for tests or hours of homework each night.

That’s what school is like in Finland, which has one of the highest ranked education systems in the world. It’s one of the top five ranked by Pearson, an education and publishing company. Although its rank in the OECD’s PISA went down in 2013, it has consistently ranked among the top in the survey since 2000.

Meanwhile, the U.S. system, with all its Harvard hopefuls and AP class students, tested average.

I feel so proud when friends tell me their parents like me. Like damn right they do, I am a delight.

Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.

A billion times THIS! There needs to be more standardized clothing sizes like there are with shoes. 

And people wondered why I wore men’s clothing (especially pants) when I was in my teens.  It’s sold by measurement, not by “size.”

BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce

loitering is basically the illegal act of existing while not spending money

isn’t capitalism fun

This is part of why I’m so passionate about libraries. They’re one of the last few free public places you can go and not be pressured to spend money. Instead they actually offer resources and programs *for free* to the public!
