becquirrell asked: We have numbers until we get to high school. (which I guess is the same as secondary school to you?????) We have 4 years of high school. The first year is freshmen year, then sophomore year, then junior year, then senior year. Then we have college. So there is elementary school which is grades kindergarten to 5th or 6th grade. Then there is middle school which is 7th and 8th grade. Then there's high school which is 9th to 12th grade or freshmen to senior year. I hope that cleared some stuff up!

That explains a lot! It’s so strange that you go from numbers to named years? We have nursery (which is your kindergarten) then primary school which goes reception, year 1, year 2 etc… Until year 6. Then Year 7 until 11 is Secondary school, Years 12 and 13 are Sixth Form. Sixth form can also be split into ‘first and second year’ if the Sixth form is independent to the Secondary school. It’s kind of confusing compared to the US school system! Thank you for messaging me to explain 😊😘

I don’t understand american school years what the fuck is a freshman or a sophomore why do you have these words instead of the numbers

wait what the hell do you use?

We have Year numbers. So you can be in Year 8 or Year 3 etc… Like aged 17-18 you’re in Year 13!

My friend Tyler is trying to lose weight and he asked my other friend Orlando to train him. Tyler was embarrassed to go to the gym though so Orlando is taking care of that by dressing up as characters when they go to the gym so that the focus isn’t on Tyler but on himself. So far Tyler has been trained by a Jedi and steampunk Batman. This is one of the nicest things I have ever seen done for someone else. 

Orlando’s kindness blows me away.

Saw this and rebloged from the source and wow that’s so awesome!

In German, when the phone rings, people respond with their surname. In French, they usually say “Allo?” In Italian, they say “Pronto”, meaning “Ready”. And in Japanese the equivalent of “Hello” is “Moshi moshi”.

the shitty thing about having read a book in which a major character dies in the end is that when you see the movie it’s so fucking painful because when you’re seeing that character and whenever they’re smiling all you can think of is “you’re gonna fucking die” like you can literally feel your soul being ripped out of your chest

I’m looking at you
