My stress level is such that after finally remembering a few minutes ago that oh shit I guess we better hang up the graduation gowns so they can get the creases out without me having to iron them, they're both apparently 2 inches off (too short) from the suggested height. Cue crying after midnight (me, not my boys).
I really can't wait until this hellhole school year is just finally over. :(
I am 20 minutes into the Zach Snyder's Directors Cut of The Justice League and it is already a million times better than the 2017 version.
THIS is the DC world. No stupid slapstick comedy, no out of character wittiness. This is the DC comics I loved as a child and would stay up at night reading from my father's collection. It wasn't always particularly hopeful, but the stories were something I craved.
Arise and live again! Hey, the thread exists so why make a new one?
Anyway. I just discovered there this new(?) - newish - thing where these guys who are amazing singers sing soooooo looooooow.and the subharmonics are just amazing not to mention their overall octave range which is wonderfully displayed when they sing with themselves.
I don't know if this got lost in the shuffle (shuffle, noise, vitriol), but I never minded the idea of anyone saying, "Hey, this thing is awesome and we want to feature it." I think it's a great community-building idea, and I hope you keep doing it. Even if people disagree, they will know what you think is good.
The big explosion over ideas was because of the prerequisites.
My youngest child came home with a pilgrims and Indians themes project in kindergarten this year school year in WA state. Which was horrifying to me on many levels.
Public school instruction in the US is extremely fractured, not only state by state but district by district and school by school. (My older kids' elementary school would have NEVER done that, and also at the time was the main site for a native american students and families group for the district, and those parents very generously shared resources with the teachers, students, and other families about PacNW history and current culture!!)
There is such a strange deviation in how we teach people on a state-by-state basis. I spent my pre-teen through high school period on Maui, wherein we did explicitly discuss American colonialism and the annexation's effects on the modern day. That said, we absolutely did not discuss anything in lengthy detail that solely affected the mainland. This made it surprisingly frank, like in US history the teacher said "The Civil War was about slavery," and that was that. When I was in early elementary school, I lived in Georgia in which the textbook used was like "here are the reasons why states' rights are important..." so you can imagine how much unlearning happened in middle & high school there.
