  • In high school they told us:

    There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.

  • Once I was in college a professor said:

    Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.

  • In high school they told us:

    In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.

  • Once I was in college a professor said:

    Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.

  • In high school they told us:

    Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.

  • Once I was in college almost every professor said:

    You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.

  • In high school they told us:

    If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.

  • Once I was in college a professor said:

    Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!

  • In high school they told us:

    You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.

  • Once I was in college almost every professor said:

    Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.

  • In high school they told me:

    There is no excuse for an absence. NONE.

  • In college I called a professor and said:

    I'm really, really, really sorry but it's -18 before windchill and I have to walk two miles to get to class.

  • The professor said:

    You stay inside and stay safe. Here's what we're reading today. I'll quiz you next week and if you can get a 90% I'll mark you present. I know you live off-campus, do you have food?

  • In high school they told me:

    Your advisor is just for academia, not personal problems.

  • In college my advisor called me:

    Are you okay? I haven't seen you in class in two weeks and I know you have depression. I can drop off your work if you'd like. Please call me and tell me how you're doing even if you can't get to class.

  • In high school they told me:

    Don't argue. You think this is bad, wait til college.

  • In college all but one of my professors said:

    You wanna argue, do it in a civil manner. We didn't get here today without 5000 years of healthy debate.

THIS IS MARRIAGE!!

Thats right!

Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.

He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”

Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT

LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.

In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.

Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.

Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT. 

Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.

FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.

^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.

I would check first too if I was married to Cersi.  

also in Spartan war a lot of gay activity happened B)

They said that if you could visit Japan for just one day, go to Kyoto. Not only does it bear heavy historical significance as Japan’s ancient capital for over a millennium, it is also home to the best landmarks including Fushimi-Inari, Arashiyama Bamboo thicket, Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion) and the famous geisha district, Gion.

The first four days of my trip was in Kyoto (originally Osaka) with no actual plan where and what place I should visit first since I have to familiarize myself with the wayfinding. I stayed at this unassuming but very decent hostel and tried to divide my trip based on quadrants since I was staying in the central area. First day included a very touristy walk around the city complete with my bucket hat. First impression: everything was in place, there is a seamless blur between the sidewalk and the actual street with an untold sense of respect among the pedestrians walking, people on bicycles and mass transit. Really admirable because you know when a city is really developed: it radiates and also really sad because how I wish this level of livability, this proportionate human to person scale and this comfortable walkability from place to another is far from being attainable in my hometown. Transport was a bit tricky at first since the Japanese are a bit anal about things, their train system is like a complex version of Hong Kong’s but thankfully it took me a short while to get accustomed to it. 

Kyoto’s most glaring charm is the fact that its strong heritage does not succumb nor overpower its modern built environment with ryokans and traditional houses blending perfectly with the new ones. Temples, shrines and feudal castles remained the city’s focal points directly connected to stations which makes it easy to navigate. You can actually breeze through the important structures in just one day if planned ahead of time but for the likes of me who had that much luxury of time I think I was able to observe more in my own pace. I think I can now say that you should forget Tokyo for now and visit Kyoto instead - it’s actually the quintessential authentic Japan that you should experience first.
