A Student Explains What's Wrong With Our School System And Why We Mistrust Teachers. Nails It. -
He wants to support his teachers, so he calls out everything we’re doing wrong.
I just finished my second Hums2000 paper, which means 3 more papers to go until the 5th. I can’t wait until this is all over with. I think I’m actually making progress with writing though, I haven’t procrastinated nearly as much as last year and I’ve actually handed in 2 papers so far without having a breakdown while writing them or staying up past 11pm the night before.
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down. — (via keepclassy)
