Hello, My name is Alex and I'm most definitely not your ordinary girl. Currently, I like to blog just about everything but my favorite things are: Harry Potter, Disney, League of Legends, and Neopets. Got a problem with any of those? I suggest you find another blog to follow.

About me? Well, you know my name is Alex, but besides that, I am 18 years old and I aspire to be a nurse. However, I would love to be a stay at home mom. Any questions? Just ask! I don't bite, really, I don't.

My ask is open and i'm usually online most of the time.

This is the one time of year that I love wasps.
Not because the wasps themselves get any nicer. They’re horrid little creatures year round. No, it’s because I have a couple of big apple trees out back, and late August, early September is when the apples start ripening.
Now, if you don’t harvest your own fruit, there are two things you need to know about apples.
The first thing you need to know about apples is that, when apples get ripe, they tend to fall from the tree at the slightest breeze.
I often work late at the office; by the time I get home, there are piles of apples scattered everywhere - and sure enough, the wasps are out in force, gorging themselves on the fruit. When I go to clean up the windfallen apples, the wasps naturally do the “rawr, I’ma fuck you up!” routine for which wasps are known.
The second thing you need to know about apples is that they ferment very rapidly in the late August heat.
So: the wasps try to come at me, but they’re too drunk to fly. They get about an inch off the ground, then faceplant directly into the turf, flip over onto their backs, and lay there, legs twitching in the air as they try in vain to find something to sting.
Perhaps I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I bust up laughing every. single. time.
Fucking wasps.

things about Hufflepuffs #410

thingsabouthufflepuffs:

Hufflepuff was the house most opposed to Educational Decree 26… Because Hufflepuffs have a tendency to platonically crawl all over anyone who is comfortable with it. How are you supposed to hug properly from 6 inches away?!

ketotron:

A girl who i knew from school just message me on facebook asking for weightloss advice. She wants to know how to tone up becuase she’s doing lots of exercise and seeing no results. She’s “eating good, 700 calories or less” Things like this worry me so much! I hate that it’s…

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.

I will never not reblog this

"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."

Americans LOVE using the term ‘RIGOROUS’ for school now. My dad’s a teacher and every single teacher is told YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE CLASS RIGOROUS. 

RIG·OR·OUS
ˈrigərəs/
adjective
  • extremely thorough, exhaustive, or accurate.
"the rigorous testing of consumer products"
synonyms:meticulousconscientiouspunctiliouscarefuldiligentattentivescrupulouspainstakingexactpreciseaccuratethoroughparticularstrictdemanding, exacting
"rigorous attention to detail"
  • (of a rule, system, etc.) strictly applied or adhered to.
"rigorous controls on mergers"
synonyms:strict, severe, sternstringent, toughharshrigidrelentlessunsparinginflexibledraconian (which means excessively harsh and severe)intransigentuncompromising, exacting
"the rigorous enforcement of rules"

And American parents wonder why children burn out before college and drop out. IT IS TOO MUCH WORK. One teacher told me that she had to constantly give the children in KINDERGARTEN homework. You know what kindergarten was in my MOM’S day?! It was preparing you for first grade. You learned how to walk in a line, how to raise your hand and how to listen to the teacher. THAT’S IT. 
When parents say that children are ‘lazy’ or that ‘they have nothing to complain about’ or that ‘school is easy just do it’ I think they need to spend a day doing all the homework and ‘rigorous learning’ their children do NOW because THEY had it easier. With each passing year school is getting progressively more difficult. 
they are setting up children to fail because an uneducated work force can be paid less and therefore they want to keep us stupid so we will do more work for less pay. 

my family has told me in the past that school is easy and i’m lazy and that they couldn’t study the things i am because its too hard in the exact same breath
