Nicki Minaj is actually one of my favorite people.

I watched like 5 minutes of American Idol, and this kid was….not so good. While everyone else was laughing at him, she comforted him, told him to come to the desk and held his hand as she told him that even though singing might not be his forte, he could do so much because he’s young and full of life. And has a lot of guts going on the show. Then she gave him a hug.

Seriously I don’t understand how people hate her????

Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength. Posted 3 weeks ago with 382 notes | reblog

"Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place." - (via m-wol)

It is so important to have a relaxed attiture towards studying. Many people (Me From The Past included) just tense up when it comes to studying - I have to do it, I have to get good grades, I need to do this now, I have no choice, everyone expects this from me, if I fail now, I won’t have a good life later, I need to do this to be succesful, …
but no. Stop yourself there. That’s not how we do. Those are all good and valid reasons for studying, but they are additional. They won’t motivate you. They scare you. They force you to study by instilling the fear of failure in you. And that’s not a good long-time strategy. At all. Do you really want to operate on fear?
No. What you need is(That the day would ever come to use this)You shouldn’t study because of obligation, you should study because of curiosity. Think about it: You’re a mass of flesh and blood and bone, somehow navigating through a space of ups and downs and lefts and rights and through a time of before and now and then. How freaking confusing. Yet we tell each other stories and build shelters and produce sounds that convey meaning and significance and invent pasta and sometimes slaughter each other and sometimes hug each other for hours and there are storms and there are table-top lamps that look like worms and we investigate and we find magnets and electricity and that there are forces we cannot see in day to day life and there are other planets out there, huge and tiny and we only see them as little lights on the sky and we once thought they were gods and that they would govern our fates, because we know we will die but we can heal sickness and sadness and we joke and make each other laugh and one day it’s over and then?Do you not want to know more? I know I do. And this passion, this love, will keep you going. In a laid-back, chill, stylish and day to day way. Every day you learn a little more about our reality. Isn’t that just …cool?
How To Stay Sane Your First Years Of Teaching


In a couple weeks, I’ll officially be a third year teacher. This is nothing compared to so many fantastic Tumblr teachers, but in my short time in education, I have seen many teachers come and leave the profession. Apparently, at high-poverty schools, 20% of teachers leave every year. After…
