This was one of my favorite teachers ever, he didn't believe in homework and was just the coolest dude ever
I won't be here tomorrow so I left worksheets for the teacher to give you.
why can't we watch a movie?
because the school board doesn't like us to show you movies that don't have anything to do with the curriculum. They say that movies are for home and we need to keep your home life separate from your school life.
then why do they give us homework?
Samantha, please. Whatever you do. Bring this up with the principal because that's the best argument I have ever heard.
"Well, I feel like we’re fed all of this B.S. We watch too much TV, and a lot of the current pop music just keeps us numb, floating along, blinded, not really conscious. To me that’s very frightening because it means a vast majority of people are indifferent. My dream would be that at the peak of my career there would be a riot, anarchy, have people take back their power and wake up. The world is a scary place and it’s just getting worse because we don’t care. We’re too busy checking Instagram every five seconds. People have no idea what’s going on in Russia but they know what Kim Kardashian wore to the Met Gala. My dad told me that I have a message — why not just become a preacher or a rabbi? I can’t help it. Music is a universal language that draws people together. There’s a quote from Aristotle: “If one listens to the wrong kind of music, he will become the wrong kind of person,” and I truly believe that."
"Best conversations always happen late in the night."
"The city was always my garden, the people there like flowers, the traffic like a river, the lights of the buildings shining as if they were a hundred white tears."
