met with martha, who is one of the art history teachers at school, and my friend mallory earlier. we talked over the philanthropy idea that mal & i came up with last year and never got to do. we want to do a decade dance where people dress up like they’re from the 20s and it’ll be a fundraiser for a nonprofit local organization. today we hammered a lot of the details out and i think we’re gonna be able to do it (((: it’s gonna take a shit ton of work but i’m super excited for it now. today is a good day.

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles is making no friends at tonight’s Town Hall. Part 2

[part 1]

“I find many adults are put off when young children pose scientific questions. Why is the Moon round? the children ask. Why is grass green? What is a dream? How deep can you dig a hole? When is the world’s birthday? Why do we have toes? Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else: ‘What did you expect the Moon to be, square?’ Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys the grown-ups. A few more experiences like it, and another child has been lost to science. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before 6-year-olds, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that we don’t know something? Is our self-esteem so fragile?”

alannah just texted me “can we please talk?” i never replied to her chewing me out way back in june, nor did i reply to her apology/trying to win me back text. don’t really wanna reply to this one either but in a way i’m a bit curious about what she even wants to talk about.

i’m grumpy and i’ve got a headache because the sun hasn’t been out since like monday and i just want it to not be cloudy and gray outside thanks
