EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014,California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE…
Maybe the reason why other minorities have a hard time keeping up with Asians is because they don’t have the drive to succeed, as well as the motivation to become a better person. Maybe most of them are just content with enjoying student life, not taking their studies seriously.
I think that in America, kinder to senior high education is free. That is what I believe. Here in Asia, we pay for that. Our parents work hard to send us to good schools to get great education. One of the ways I motivate myself to study is that I’m wasting my parents’ money by not performing good enough.
Why don’t schools try to motivate their low-performing students to encourage them to try harder, or examine why these students on the reasons they’re falling behind?
Don’t take it out on the Asian-American community. Just because you have a hard time catching up, doesn’t mean we have to slow down for you. They should try and keep up, because if they keep that slow pace, there won’t be any progress
i have headcanon that brian met bird jesus at some point.
Honestly when TPP first started its crystal run, I felt rather annoyed at all the people being so quick to force the bird jesus label onto the new pidgey, guess this was a bit of venting from myself about that
The scriptreader listed 37 frequently occurring problems, here are the top 20:
The story begins too late in the script
The scenes are void of meaningful conflict
The script has a by-the-numbers execution
The story is too thin
The villains are cartoonish, evil-for-the-sake-of-evil
The character logic is muddy
The female part is underwritten
The narrative falls into a repetitive pattern
The conflict is inconsequential, flash-in-the-pan
The protagonist is a standard issue hero
The script favors style over substance
The ending is completely anti-climactic
The characters are all stereotypes
The script suffers from arbitrary complexity
The script goes off the rails in the third act
The script’s questions are left unanswered
The story is a string of unrelated vignettes
The plot unravels through convenience/contrivance
The script is tonally confused
The protagonist is not as strong as [he or she needs to] be
In a way, while the information about script problems is helpful, there’s a ton more information included here. Like the fact that 270 of the scripts were written by male writer(s). Or that only 2 scripts took place in outer space. Or that the most common location for these films-in-waiting was “some anonymous small town,” which just narrowly edged out its exact opposite, a place called “New York City.”
So here’s to more space, less anonymous small towns.
trees like these are the best to sit under and read books or draw or just relax and be alone
or you can climb it and sit up in the foliage waiting for unsuspecting pedestrians to walk by so you can swing down on one of the roots with a Tarzan scream and kick them in the face before running from the traffic cops
