In My Words turned 3 today!
There was a big difference in how Lorelai and Luke handled things. Yes, Lorelai was hurtful in not letting Max have any parenting abilities, but he was AROUND Rory a lot. He got to know her, starting from day one. Luke didn’t tell Lorelai about April for 2 months, and after she did find out, he wouldn’t let her come near April. Lorelai wasn’t asking for permission to have the right to ground April, she was asking to be considered as part of the package. Very different.
Answering my own questions from earlier because no one will talk to me (how passive-aggressive is that?!)
Someone should talk to me.
can someone be super sweet to me? i’m sad and lonely and all mixed up feeling. please?
Anybody know what time the astronomy final (originally tomorrow, 1030 - 1230) was rescheduled for?

i love Malala so much.

I second that
You’re so PRETTY
Video is a teacher talking to a classroom of deaf students.
Teacher: I want to talk about language today. When a child is born, what is the first thing the parents hear in the hospital?
Student: “Your child failed the hearing test.”
Teacher: Right. A baby is five hours old and he’s failed something already? What about the term “hearing loss”? What does that word evoke?
Student: Hearing is the norm. Deaf is less than. Lacking.
Teacher: Are we “less than”? Do you believe being deaf has taken away or added to your life? If someone invented a pill you could take it tonight and you would wake up hearing how many of you would take it? *looks around the room* None of you. Why not?
Student: Because being deaf gives you friends anywhere you go.
Student: And a way of seeing the world that’s different from anyone else.
Student: Hearing kids don’t know who they are. We do. We’re deaf: first, last, always.
Student: Hearing people think they have more than us…their lives are better. We have it so “hard.” But I’d never give up being deaf to be like anyone else. Never.
Teacher: Not hearing loss. Deaf gain.
Note: Please keep this transcript when you reblog this so that blind people (blind people use screen readers) are able to know what the video was talking about.
I did a presentation of deaf culture, and there were some people who really didn’t get why deaf people wouldn’t want to be “fixed.” I wish I could show them this.
Happy Birthday, gorgeous!
