being really into history is cooler than being into math or science… someone who likes math and science is called a “math nerd” or a “science geek” but someone who likes history is called a “history buff” because of their strong, sensual arms
this doesnt even need a caption… every girl knows what this is…
i will never not reblog. its too accurate
wait do girls really go in those weird half standing positions and stand on their heads type deal???
We really do tho!
can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
There are only a few episodes that I distinctly remember and this one tops the list. My father is a chef and used to do a lot of catering (like Arthur’s dad) at around the age I would watch this. I was actually worried when I saw his dad in the kitchen fire.
It’s actually quite funny this would show up on my dashboard, because I remember the psychologist I saw after the attack made me watch this episode with her, and it kind of made me feel a little better about how to handle my emotions and anxiety after witnessing and losing someone. I watched Arthur a lot with my little brother so it was comforting having characters I was familiar with, going through the same feelings and emotions as me.
Hades puts up with so much shit during this movie, I sympathize with him more than Hercules.
Hades is my spirit animal.
!!!!!!MISSING PERSON ALERT!!!!!!
Hannah Wilshaw has been missing for almost two days now, she was flying from London to Dallas and was last heard from in Dallas, tx while waiting for her overlay flight to take her to Abilene. Our friend went to pick her up from the Abilene airport and she wasn’t there; she called The Abilene airport and they had no records of her even flying to Abilene so she never left Dallas. We called all the hospitals in Dallas and there was no records of her there either. Her mother has tried to contact the bank she uses to find out if she has used her credit cards and they told her that they couldn’t help until a missing person file has been filed. We have 6 more hours until the police will consider her a missing person and help. Her only means of communications are on her laptop through skype and we’re not sure if she has her laptop at all with her. IF you know anyone in Texas please share this with them so they can share it with people near them. She goes by male pronouns and the name Roderich but I’m referring to her as a she as to not confuse people with her real name. Everyone is worried sick and if you see her Please call the Abilene or Dallas police, or our Friend, Taylor. You can even send me asks or call me.
HANNAH IS FROM OVERSEAS; SO SHE IS NOT FAMILIAR WITH HER SURROUNDINGS AS WELL.
