So, everyone hates Dr. Honeypot…

But… I’m surprisingly ok with that, because it means that she’s a compelling character that actually has some sort of power in the game, because in Gatorland power = everyone hates you. 

So yeah…. 

I mean, they’ll all be crying to me when they want infection back when I finally go Grave Robber. >.>

…I hate. My life. polepixie yeah!! That where I…

You live in California, right? There should be *some* mom and pop stores that are friendly and accepting. You might just have to look harder and once you get hired, drop the bomb then.

Common Core also has data mining

Schools have already added Iris scanners for students to use, and also tracking ID cards students have to keep on them. As well as knowing what your religion is, what political views you have, are you gay and other very personal irrelevant information and other intrusive questions. It also inserts political views and ideologies into test and assignment questions and word problems. Global warming, presidential executives orders, rewording and changing the meaning to things like amendments in the constitution. It leaves the bureaucrats in Washington and the federal government in total control to dictate how what gets taught in schools on an unproven experimental program that comes with a hefty price tag for its uniform standard cookie cutter one size fits all approach to education, killing teacher flexibility and specialized education for individual students. Because common core is for primary school, once you enter high school, the learning curve will be steeper than it ever was before when you have to forgot common core, and do things the old way that is still used in high school, that you would have learned in primary school to begin with before common cores creation.

Initially common core was touted as being this super effective form of teaching that proved highly successful over seas, but they had to recant those claims when people here began to review it and research the claims. Then the federal government said they would not give federal funding to states that did not accept common core, forcing them to accept it if they wanted funding.

If you do not know why one of the pics is considered bad, let me know and I will explain.

I know mothers who are pulling their kids out of school right and left and looking for ways to home-school them because of ^THIS BULLSHIT. 

Pardon my French.

But this is bullshit.

Every time I read about the American education system I thank fucking God for being born in Europe.

My mother is a math teacher at a charter school that doesn’t use common core and tells me about how a ton more peoples tarted trying to get into her school when the main district started using common core. People aren’t joking when they say that parents are literally changing their children’s school to get out of this shit.

I showed these to my boyfriend and his two reactions were:

"I’m glad Greenpeace is more important that World War II" and "Have these people never read 1984?"

I have to say that pretty much sums up everything I think.

I refuse to let myself freak out. Joe get’s his money on the 1st, and I’m getting a tax return of over $600 which will pay the last of the bills at our current place AND get my car repaired, and hopefully I’ll get some money for graduation.

My parents will hopefully donate for the application fees and deposit for the new place, and by THAT point, I will be bringing in money.

The only thing I technically have to worry about is car insurance, but I think I can get by with the money that would have gone to my landlord in the month of May.

I mean, I can always just go down to the local strip club if I *really* need money for something, right?
