Does anyone want to hook me up with a job where I don’t work for an elected official who makes up BS RULES ALL THE TIME?!?!
Just hanging out with Prince Cornelius 👑
Nails came out pretty cute 💅😋
ALL of this. Encourage people to try new words, to mess them up, to experiment with vocabulary, to learn complicated adjectives and verbs and nouns, because words are fun.
Also, don’t be a jerk.
I’m that person! I don’t know how to pronounce a lot of words since most of my vocab came from reading alone. You don’t have to admire us - just respect us. Don’t make fun of us!
Truth — no one should ever discourage motivations to learn.
I used to think that I could never lose anyone if I photographed them enough. In fact, my pictures show me how much I’ve lost.

And then one student said that happiness is what happens when you go to bed on the hottest night of the summer, a night so hot you can’t even wear a tee-shirt and you sleep on top of the sheets instead of under them, although try to sleep is probably more accurate. And then at some point late, late, late at night, say just a bit before dawn, the heat finally breaks and the night turns into cool and when you briefly wake up, you notice that you’re almost chilly, and in your groggy, half-consciousness, you reach over and pull the sheet around you and just that flimsy sheet makes it warm enough and you drift back off into a deep sleep. And it’s that reaching, that gesture, that reflex we have to pull what’s warm - whether it’s something or someone - toward us, that feeling we get when we do that, that feeling of being sad in the world and ready for sleep, that’s happiness.
