Dear Final Paper,
I do not want to write you
You make me feel sad
Video is a teacher talking to a classroom of deaf students.
Teacher: I want to talk about language today. When a child is born, what is the first thing the parents hear in the hospital?
Student: “Your child failed the hearing test.”
Teacher: Right. A baby is five hours old and he’s failed something already? What about the term “hearing loss”? What does that word evoke?
Student: Hearing is the norm. Deaf is less than. Lacking.
Teacher: Are we “less than”? Do you believe being deaf has taken away or added to your life? If someone invented a pill you could take it tonight and you would wake up hearing how many of you would take it? *looks around the room* None of you. Why not?
Student: Because being deaf gives you friends anywhere you go.
Student: And a way of seeing the world that’s different from anyone else.
Student: Hearing kids don’t know who they are. We do. We’re deaf: first, last, always.
Student: Hearing people think they have more than us…their lives are better. We have it so “hard.” But I’d never give up being deaf to be like anyone else. Never.
Teacher: Not hearing loss. Deaf gain.
Note: Please keep this transcript when you reblog this so that blind people (blind people use screen readers) are able to know what the video was talking about.
We better reblog this as much as we can 2013 is almost over
NO FREAKING WAY
the 40’s and 50’s had a really cute aesthetic however the dark underside of over patriotism, greed, racism and sexism make me content to simply steal the dress patterns and be glad I’m not living during the time period.
Finally somebody said it
he looks so pleased with himself and that makes me happy
Me too Caesar me too
Most shippers reactions when their OTP becomes cannon.
A guy is taking his girlfriend to prom. He waits in the ticket line for a really long time but gets them. He goes to rent a limo. The rental line is really long but he eventually does it. He goes to buy her flowers. The line at the florist is really long but eventually he gets the flowers. At prom, she asks him to go get punch. He goes to the refreshment table and there’s no punchline.
you’ve got to be kidding me
I am in physical pain
that point in a paper when you check all the paragraphs to make sure they extend into the next line just a little so you don’t have to write as much
I once increased the font size of all my periods in an essay; it was quite effective if I remember correctly.
My prof has seen it often enough that he can tell. But other times, it does work. :)
