Let’s change the way we teach our children.

Meaningful post, as promised:

If something in the water was making you sick, and you were aware of this, logic would kick in and you would stop drinking the water. That’s what you would think anyway. This would not be the case if you were, let’s say, the American educational system. You would just keep on drinking, without a care or worry in the world. Ignore that cramp in your stomach. Don’t mind the vomiting.

What i’m trying to say is that education in this country is broken. We are teaching our children how to be weak followers. Whether this is by neglect or design is open to debate. Our children aren’t being taught how to make any real money. They aren’t being taught how to start a business, or build a house , or much of anything besides how to follow directions. We aren’t teaching them how to make informed, thought out, intelligent decisions. We just equip them with a standard set of actions and responses. Say no to drugs. Don’t touch me there. You know what I mean.

So what can we all do to fix this? It doesn’t seem so tough to me. Let’s listen to the kids. Let’s stop punishing them for being creative and asking questions. Encourage them. Reward them for outside of the box thinking. I’m almost positive that engaging children in this way would be innumerably more beneficial to them than negative reinforcement. Like they say, what goes around comes around. Teaching our children to be curious and caring can only make this a better world to be in.

/end rant 🙂

ok, so I have a final in my English comp class in eight hours.

Procrastination….Life goals part 1

Things to do before I die.

  • start a religion
  • write a literary masterpiece
  • Get married
  • find god
  • get divorced
  • learn to love myself and others
  • become independantly wealthy
  • be truly shocked by something
  • start a revolution
  • graduate college while still a twenty-something.

If you are able to help me with any of these, I never look a gift horse in the mouth.

A meaningful post is coming within hours, I swear it.

Gucci fanny pack and my friend the photographer

I heard that phrase yesterday and it made me die a little inside.

Gucci fanny pack. Gucci fanny pack. Gucci fanny pack.

Apparently, you ain’t shit without your Gucci fanny pack.

And in other news….

Check out my friend ShawnMac. I’ve known him for years. He is an excellent photographer and a stone cold gangsta. If you live in the New York metro area and need work, check him out. He is fair and his work is remarkable.As a sidenote, I was present when this picture was taken. That night was as wierd as this picture implies. Do yourself a favor and take a look a the rest of his work because it is all wonderful.
