This has NEVER happened to me before in my LIFE. I have an actual, real-life shot at winning this thing.
But I need you to please keep helping me. Please keep voting. Please keep sharing this link with your friends. Please talk this up. Because the only way I can stay in the Top 10 is if I keep this momentum going, and there’s no way I’m stopping now! So here’s a cute gif of puppies yawning to thank you in advance for your help :)
“Bourgeois society is ruled by equivalence. It makes the dissimilar comparable by reducing it to abstract quantities. To the enlightenment, that which does not reduce to numbers, and ultimately to the one, becomes illusion; modern positivism writes it off as literature.”—Dialectic of Enlightenment

So we have some family friends that have a 9 year old girl. She is pretty cool but already seems to have issues against fat people/things which is quite sad. She is very skinny, her mom is not, her dad used to be overweight but not anymore. Like I drew a decimal that happened to be thick and she claimed that the decimal should loose weight kinda thing. I didn’t know how to deal with that so I sorta just asked her how it should loose weight? She had sorta nothing to say so we moved along. I have known her since before she was born (like how Yeezus knew me before I was born).
So she was afraid of learning decimals. Sidetrack, she is in Karate and knows how to play the piano! Ok, so I decided to learn her the memory palace technique so she could remember what each decimal spot is named (you know tenths, hundredths, etc). I got her to use her own room and it looks like it worked! I tested her randomly while we got to hang out in my house while my parents and her mom were chatting in the living room. She claimed that I would make a great teacher and that I should be one because of my lesson! I’m so happy.
I barely get to hang out with her which is sad but she is one of them over-scheduled kids because her mom finally got the kid she never thought she would get and is now most likely a helicopter parent kinda thing-thing. But I am really excited to see her grow up and be super smart because she already is. Like she asks really good questions, etc.
how some people will do like: “one year solid of not reading anything written by a cis/white/het male”. I want to do that but also include bands/shows. like i don’t want to see music that is comprised solely of cis/white/het men.
kquimby SEND ME A LIST, once you compile it, OF SUCH BANDS/BOOKS FOR ME TO ALSO LOOK AAAAAAAAAAAAT!
