In your own blog, write about why you think most football coaches tend to be conservative, and most teachers tend to be liberal.
I was asked this question by the only extremely conservative teacher I know. While he often says really shallow and trashy things about democrats and liberals, he shocks me every now and then with a thought provoking question. They aren’t always political, but most of the time they are.
I am a misophonic. I have been ever since I was about nine or ten years old. What does that mean? I have a hatred of sound… but it’s not that simple. A clicking pen, chomping, my brother’s video game controller tapping… it makes me rage. I have a mental disorder in which I rage over a person chewing too loud. I know, it’s not possible, and I have some other kind of disease, because misophonia just doesn’t exist.
It does exist. And it sucks. It effects my life so much that I could be making all A’s in school. But, in the middle of my English class, I have three pen clickers. I ask politely for them to stop. They brush me off as if it doesn’t matter. They are the people keeping me from being able to pay attention in class, and I can’t blame it all on them. I sometimes have to stay after class just to ask the teacher questions about things she already said. Because all of my attention is focused on those three people. I can’t help it. I’m not ADD. I’m trying my hardest.
Then, in another class, this girl constantly pops her gum. And when she’s not popping it, she chews it like a cow would chew grass. It’s annoying, and she makes me want to cry and smack the gum out of her mouth all at the same time.
I have SAD and Misophonia, and they are controlling my life
And I have no power to fight back.
A time for turkey and dreaded family reuniouns.
A day to be thankful for what you have…
To eat all you want and feel guilty about later
A day for fun or falling outs…
and then the day after.
It’s funny after a day of already being thankful for what people have, they are the first ones buying into corporate America, camping outside until their official opening on Black Friday. If I do go shopping, I go to one of the plenty mom and pop stores here. It’s so much better to live in a foreign country, where they don’t have the same traditions as us. Sadly, these foreign countries are trying to adopt “traditions” of the “father country”, America. While I am a progressive, I think that something as negative as Black Friday should not be spread. It’s quite ironic how people will go out and spend 500 dollars on things they don’t need, and yet complain about how they can’t afford a 200 dollar grocery bill.
Black Friday isn’t progress… it’s greed.
