Me and british accents

Most of you don’t know me at all, but every now and then I’ll fall into a British accent.

Odd, considering that I’ve never lived outside of my home in Portsmouth Virginia.

But, allow me to fill you in on why I speak with a fake accent every now and then:

When I was growing up, my mom always read harry potter to me. My mom, always wanting to keep me absorbed, would read all of the books in the accent of the characters, also folding the accent into the character.

I enjoyed the accents so much that I requested that all books be read to me in the harry potter voices.

Eventually, after countless documentaries and BBC movies, I began to associate ALL narrations with a British accent. Every book I read? British. Every book I write? British.

So, if all I think about are books that I read or books that I write, then all of my thoughts are in the voice of a narrator. A British narrator.

And a person tends to speak how they think.

On top of it, the more Dr. Who I watch and Beatles that I listen to, the more British influence I gain as my thoughts are taken over by the UK!

Traits of a good student

             The years spent in school are vital for any person’s life. It accounts for over one sixth of the average American’s lifespan, and is a vital source of the socialization process. Primarily, school’s main purpose is to educate a person to make them better functioning responsible and productive members of society. Although there are many different traits that are necessary to being a good student, the following three are possibly the most vital of them all.

            In order for a student to even begin the learning process, a student must be interested in learning. If they choose to reject new knowledge, or simply refuse to listen to instruction, then they will just not learn. The good student will arrive at school, wide eyed and attent, ready for the day of learning that is sure to come. Not all students will be interested in a particular subject all the time, but, for the most part, the best students are interested in learning new things for the sake of simply learning new things. If they learn just because they enjoy learning, then every day in school can be a pleasurable one, even becoming the favorite part of the day. A student that enjoys learning is also likely to pursue knowledge outside of the classroom, often doing independent study of whatever it is that interests them, often folding in the new knowledge with whatever they learned in class, allowing for more unique ideas to flow forth.

            Tenacity is also important for a good student. Learning can be very difficult, and if a student doesn’t show gumption, then they will be hopelessly lost in school most of the time. Hard work and tenacity will also help them to get through even the most difficult of assignments. A student that exhibits this and nothing else will at the very least be able to get through every assignment that they are given, regardless of how much they actually know. With enough will power and hard work, a good student can get anywhere they need to.

            The third trait a student should have is a respectful and upbeat attitude. They should act positively and respectfully not only to their teachers, but also to other students and staff members. To show a good attitude in school not only makes things more pleasant for the student, but it makes things substantially easier on everyone around them. To take everything in school in stride, nothing to worry about, a student will seemingly breeze through challenge they face, with their teachers enjoying just the fact that this member of the student body is in their class smiling and ready to listen to instruction.

            If a student exhibits all three of these traits, it can almost always be assured that they will complete all levels of school that they are put into, but will also be successful elsewhere in life. A good student isn’t just that; a good student is a well-rounded individual in most aspects of his or her life, ready to tackle any challenge they face. This facetious individual will go far in their social life, educational life, and eventually their careers as well. School teaches us much more than reading writing and arithmetic; school prepares us for the real world in more ways than one could assume. And if one wants to enjoy the successes that come from higher levels of education, it is imperative for them to exhibit these key traits for success.

Equal Ouportunity

I had been talking to this girl in my english class for a week. i started to like her and whatever cuz she was really nice and really cute. but today, she really said something that made me mad.

“I won’t date non christians.”

This shit.

On the list of things that will make me mad, that’s gotta be at the top of the list. why? because there’s plenty of reasons not to like me already. don’t make reasons that make no sense.
The part that makes me mad about that is that as an atheist i don’t care what religion you are. people should judge others based on what they do and why they do things. not on who they beleive or don’t beleive in. I can date christians no problem, as long as they don’t force me to convert or anything. honestly, i’m probably better at being  ”christian” than most christians are. Diffrence is that i choose to do right because it’s good. not because it’s punished if i choose not to. I do whatever i please, without fear of retribution or consequences. so, i may not be the most tactful person on earth, but at the same time im still actively a good person.
Call it chaotic good. like han solo in ep IV.
So, it goes like this: it’s her loss. Im far from perfect, but honestly im still better than most. But in the end, i have about 300 more hours here. 300 more hours of dealing with this mess. and 300 more hours untill i can finally get out of here and on to people that hopefully aren’t so small minded.
