my therapist doesn't understand my adhd/possible autism symptoms and when i was explaining how my brain works while i'm trying to socialize she thought i was saying i care about what people think about me and i'm thinking about that too much but no!!!!
in my brain socializing is 5 dimensional chess with time travel and i'm trying to read my opponent's mind to remember what the pawn does

The main problem I find in the current schooling system is that it鈥檚 not mistake friendly in any way. This issue is also closely tied with grades, standardized tests, and the competitive environment in general.
Like, I鈥檓 told that聽鈥渇ailures are good!鈥澛犫渇ailures help you grow!鈥 but how can we afford to fail when in reality, a single failure can ruin our future? This is very relevant in extremely academically competitive countries where, for example, a B can ruin our chances.
How can you say that聽鈥渇ailures are good鈥 but punish students for it? How can we risk to fail when everything is on the line?
If a student is given 2 options for a project where one is a basic, less fun, but easy and the other is more exciting, fulfilling, but difficult, you bet they will choose the first one. Because even if it鈥檚 boring, and less fun, nothing out of their passion or interest, they will choose it because it provides a good security of grades. Easier to get a good grade on. While the other option is more fun, but risky. A bigger chance to get a lower grade, and we can鈥檛 risk that.
If this is happening EVERYWHERE, can you imagine how much chances the students are missing out on? But really, who are we to blame?聽
The overall focus on grades are kind of terrible. I鈥檓 not saying that we should remove them completely, but it鈥檚 better we should, you know, in a way,聽鈥渋solate鈥 them. In my class, our grades are announced publicly and the teacher鈥檚 reason for that is to聽鈥渕otivate鈥 us but in my perspective, it does makes me feel so much more pressured.
If grades don鈥檛 exist, or maybe if we get automatic As for the whole year, what would you do? If we drift the focus from grades and more to learning, it would feel so, so much better. I know many people might say students will be lazy and slack off more, and yes, I can鈥檛 deny that, but that鈥檚 where the teachers and the overall environment come in. If we push our students to have the right mindset, that learning is prioritized, to co-operate with others, to be a critical thinker- that won鈥檛 be a problem.
Now, the thing is, only little students care about learning anymore. Most just want good grades and get a good job, and yes, I am one of them. This is why you see a familiar argument:聽鈥渨hy do I have to study (insert biology statement) here if I want to become an artist?鈥澛犫渨hy do I have to learn about geometry when I want to become a journalist one day?鈥 It鈥檚 like as if we鈥檙e limiting all these subjects into聽鈥淛obs鈥 and careers. And guess what? I don鈥檛 blame them.
We are pushed to think that these subjects are for our future, that even if they are useless, we practice discipline, obedience, and work ethic. That鈥檚 right too, but what about the other side? the learning side? The main side?
Even if they are聽鈥渦seless鈥, what鈥檚 the harm of learning things? Oh right, grades. We get back to the start again. Grades pretty much measure anything, and most of our academic decisions are based on them. Because we鈥檙e limiting these subjects to simply just grades, we don鈥檛 actually get to enjoy the beauty of it.
I agree, how are we expected to appreciate the beauty of a school subject when our schedule is jam-packed with daily tests, exams, homework, and the pressure of grades? How are we expected to enjoy the beauty of it when it鈥檚 just listening to a teacher, homework, homework, project, test, homework again, last test, and we just move on? just like that? Not to mention to stressing of grades and other classes too, oh boy.
Now let鈥檚 just imagine how many brilliant artists, writers, mathematicians, scientists, researchers, musicians we lost just because the narrow-minded system. A lot, I know. It all comes back to grades.
Judging from personal experience (being my perfectionist self), grades make me feel everything is a competition. I see my friends to be more of competitors I have to defeat, that I must not allow to have a higher grade, than as, well, human beings that support me. It鈥檚 quite harmful. It pushes me into this, I don鈥檛 know- horrible gifted kid burnout. I think that everything is a competition, when in fact, I know for sure learning isn鈥檛. Everyone learns in their own pace.
But as you can see, the curriculum doesn't allow us to do that. And now everything鈥檚 kind of a mess.
Yeah, I鈥檓 not saying SCHOOL IS USELESS! HORRIBLE! SATAN鈥橲 CREATION! It鈥檚 extremely flawed. In a perspective of a student, in needs to undergo lots of changes, but I think it will do it. Slowly, but surely. A single student, a single teacher, a single adult won鈥檛 be able to change this whole system at once. I just hope in the future, the education system will begin to improve. That鈥檚 it for today, peace out

鈥 you waited for me? 鈥 / g'raha to kor
shippy memes because i am a hoe // accepting
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 THE LAUGH SHE GAVE WAS INCREDULOUS. Above them, the crystalline pillars of the Tower stretched heavenward and into the clouds; periwinkle blue and golden accents, reaching forever for the cosmos. She thought she鈥檇 never be back here.聽Not since the Allagan doors shut tight on the outside world 鈥 since he had left her for a technological age he had seen with his own eyes. A world, he鈥檇 once admitted, she had long-since departed
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 HOW MANY TIMES HAD SHE PRAYED THE DOOR MIGHT OPEN? A fool鈥檚 hope, she knew. She seldom allowed ideocracy in the form of sentimentality but, even as the years wore on ( and she, by extension, changed and matured in turn ), she found herself coming back to that self-same Tower where he was locked away; to sit by those impassable walls and talk to the air in the hopes her voice might pierce the veil of sleep. It never came. All she was left with was that suffocating loneliness that aged bitter in the passage of time.
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 DEAD. HE MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN DEAD.聽Perhaps it hurt the most that he was not. Maybe it would have been easier if she had forced herself to associate him thus. For hope was too soft a word. She clung to it like a single lifeline in the wake of all the death she鈥檇 seen; the vain desire to hold him in spite of the reaper鈥檚 blade so she could prove to herself not every struggle was fruitless. It was ever her nature to think of those they had lost in the wake of victory.
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 BUT THEN HE WAS ALIVE. He was alive, he was alive, he was alive 鈥 as angry as she was, at least he was alive. She contented herself to it. It was the mantra repeated in her mind every time she nearly lost him; whether it was the machinations of the Ascians, or even his infuriating desire to right his wrongs no matter the cost. She bit her tongue until it bled and grit her teeth against the words she wanted to say. It wasn鈥檛 a good time. 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 ( when would it ever be a good time? 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 later, always later; you stupid girl.聽 )
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 CRYSTALLINE PILLARS. Not at all like the flesh and bone she held in her arms. A stone full of memories and a desperate plea 鈥 two times she had lost him, she would not allow herself a third. The of suspended sapphire was too fresh in her mind, no less the grief she felt clawing at the stone as he was consumed.
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽IN THE LAUGHTER THERE WAS GRIEF. Of a part of him, yes; but of the souls she could not save. Of the people she had lost. Of her innocence, of her vulnerabilities and her eye. The water welled in her eye until it blinked free in fat droplets that rolled down her cheek, and she barely seemed to notice them as answered.
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 鉂漎ES, YOU IDIOT, I WAITED.鉂 As if it should be so novel a concept 鈥 did he expect anything less? I love you, of course I waited.
聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽THE CORNERS OF HER MOUTH TWISTED INTO A SMILE. She shook her head back and forth.聽鈥淚t鈥檚 not my fault you oversleep. Good morning, G鈥檙aha Tia.鈥

WIP Whenever
(Again, sorry for the delay - finals week, y鈥檃ll saw the last post probably xD You know how it is.)
I was tagged by @sleepswithvillains, thank you so much! No-pressure tags: @tishinada, @vespertine-legacy, and anyone else who wants to!
Not precisely聽fanfiction, but have a snippet of the next of the Togruta moon gods鈥 worldbuilding - she should actually have her full writeup ready to post very soon! :3
Sadravan is one of the six moon gods of the Togruta, and is a god of peace, serenity, winter, and motherhood. She is the one god most often called mate to Tsaal, and though she may take other mates and lovers in several myths, she and Tsaal are always loyal to each other 鈥 to the point that some texts translating Togruta myths mistranslate him as being her husband (not a completely inaccurate translation, but not a completely faithful one either). She is often called on to calm the sun god in the myths wherein he becomes enraged and burns the land, cooling his temper and the world alike. Because of this association with peace and serenity, she is considered a god of peace, though in a different way from Shaluu 鈥 Sadravan is personal, inner peace, where Shaluu is peace between peoples.
