Cake day: June 2nd, 2023


  • Unfortunately, failing classes in public education is not at all common anymore. It requires a lot of documentation, meetings, calls, individualized curriculum adjustments, and a multitude of second chances. On top of that, administration is not a fan because it makes the school look bad in their eyes.

    A lot of the teachers I worked with would vent their frustration that it was way too much work to fail a student or get them dropped from the program. Unfortunately, I was too busy figuring out how to update the curriculum from Windows 7, on machines built to run Windows 7, as well as just learning how to teach (my “training” was about half a day of sitting in on other classes), to fight that kind of battle. At some point, it’s a disservice to the rest of the class to spend that time and energy on the ones who are there to coast.

    I tried my best. Hopefully everybody learned a few things. If nothing else, I certainly did.

  • The strategy I use is to reroll the first shop until I get something that scales like green, bus, or square. Unfortunately that means I have to spend 10 minutes rerolling every time I restart. Would be nice to have some way to influence the first shop, maybe pick a handful of cards that don’t ever show up. This game is so reliant on getting the right jokers that it doesn’t make sense to start a run with a garbage shop roll.

  • Waited for time to pass and dust to settle to respond.

    I appreciate this.

    Understandably, I think people in mental health-focused communities are sensitive to feeling like their experience is being invalidated. Consequentially, sometimes i feel as though it is hard to speak a different opinion for fear of being labeled as someone who invalidates.

    I’m not here for arguments. If differing opinions will result in that then maybe I will bite my tongue. You seem to have a good head on your shoulders based on this comment so I believe the community is headed in the right direction.

    Thats very dismissive of you and does not fit this community well imo.

    That’s not your place to decide.

    pushing your assumptions on others is a dick move.

    Don’t really know what assumptions I pushed here.

    Telling people you feel your existence is denied because someone says “autistic people don’t have powers” is just not a good look. Calling names and picking fights with people who don’t agree with you isn’t either.

    Unfortunately for you, I’m not leaving this community just because you want me to. I will be blocking you because I didn’t come here to be called a dismissive dick. I suggest you do the same.

    Have a nice day.
