"Hi. I’m Ted Mosby. In exactly forty-five days from now, you and I are gonna meet. And we’re gonna fall in love. And we’re gonna get married, and… we’re gonna have two kids. And we’re gonna love them and each other so much. All of that is forty-five days away. But I’m here now, I guess, because I want those extra forty-five days. With you, I want each one of them. […] Because… I love you. I’m always gonna love you. ‘Til the end of my days, and beyond.”

Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.

SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

kids in this generation complain too damn much, and yes I definitely consider my age group and kids in high school now as different generations.
does school suck sometimes? yes absolutely. get the fuck over it. the majority of Americans go through and have gone through the public school system and the vast majority of them have come out fine and well adjusted.
just because you don’t like something doesn’t mean there’s a problem with it and it needs to be changed.
here’s a little advice from someone who’s been there: high school will be the easiest part of your life, so get used to the responsibilities now, because although the responsibilities change when you’re older, they don’t go away.
as an adult not only will you have to work 40 hours or more per week, you’ll have to: go food shopping, pay bills, do laundry, cook, clean, as well as the million other things that will come up that you never even thought of before.
tl;dr. life isn’t going to get easier, get your head on straight and face it head on.
Also, at least 2 of the classes referenced are AP courses. Advanced placement classes are ones where at the end of the year, you take an exam where your good grade gives you college credit for having taken the class. If you’re a high school junior taking multiple college classes, yeah- you’re going to have to work hard for them.
Does anyone realized, it’s the red circle. The red one stands for America.
I think the Russians didn’t mess up, they were sending a message.
“Prior to 1951, the official handbook stated that each color corresponded to a particular continent: blue for Europe, yellow for Asia, black for Africa, green for Australia and Oceania and red for America ” -Wikipedia
