True or false: I should get high before seeing titanic 3d in french tomorrow at 2pm alone
so for a few weeks there’s been a grey cat hanging around my apartment building, mainly outside, but i figured he was just somebody’s outside cat until last night i was coming home and saw him at like 11:30 in the rain
and then today i saw a flyer for a lost grey cat near my building and i said “when i am done with my coffee i will come back and write down the number and call it when i get near home bc maybe cat is there now
and i came back and in the short time i was at coffee
the flyer was removed!!! so i don’t have the number and i just want to help the kitty ahhhh
A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”
He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.
The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa.” —
what a radical idea yo
Bam. Kids “misbehave” for actual, real, valid reasons. And have feelings.
