It means whatever you want it to mean.


if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

Pediatricians Officially Want High Schools To Start Later



An AP link to this story went up on a local news Facebook page, and the comments from adults was so discouraging.

  • "These kids need to learn what the read world is like."
  • "Parents need to take away electronics and they’ll go to bed!"
  • "Time for parents to start whooping their kids and parenting."
  • "Oh look another example of catering to kids."

Like…did they not read the article?  It’s freaking BIOLOGY.  

I went to high school before the big technology shift.  I didn’t have a TV or gaming system in my room.  I had a desktop computer with dial up my junior and senior year.  I had a land line phone.  But I wasn’t up late talking on the phone or chatting on ICQ.  I was wide awake reading or poking at my homework because I legitimately couldn’t sleep.  I remember falling asleep in the shower when I was a kid.  

Our day starts at 8 a.m.  We already have a school day at the high school that is over an hour longer than legally required.  Is it seriously that absurd to push back a half hour or an hour?  And would even shifting the entire day from 8-3:15 to go 9-4:15 be more similar to the average work day?

How is this a crazy suggestion suddenly soaked in the coddling of children?

We start at 7:25AM. Very few “normal” professionals start that early. I’ve been instructing for an h by the time most people are supposed to show up at work. Non-teachers tell me to run before work. Yeah, right. At 4:30AM? (Props to you, jbizzle329, but that’s not my thing) Catching a bus at 6:30AM and being expect to engage in rigorous intellectual work at 7:25AM is very far off from what most adult professionals experience, and that is what my students are currently subjected to. I’m not asking that we roll in at 10AM. But could we please start at 8AM? Like the real world?

Or 9. 9 would be good.
