when i was in fourth grade we were doing a math lesson and all of a sudden the teachers like “have you ever seen a pregnant bird” and everyones jsut like “no” and then she slams her hand on the table and screams “THATS BECAUSE THEY DONT EXIST” AND ONE KID IN THE BACK JUST BLURTS OUT “WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH MATH”
95% of all dieters will regain their lost weight within 5 years. 35% of “normal dieters” progress to pathological dieting. Of those, 20-25% progress to partial or full-syndrome eating disorders.
Dieting places emphasis on quick weight loss, instead of emphasizing life-long health, wellness, and happiness. If any of the diet industry’s products worked, they wouldn’t be making billions of dollars a year from telling you you’re not good enough.
Re-learn how to eat intuitively and stop classifying foods as “good” or “bad.” You need food to survive! Stop dieting and start enjoying food again, rather than feeling guilty about it.
I mean, can we just talk about how this parallels the actual education system? Where they’re so concerned about teaching us things like logarithms and graphing that we don’t know shit about what’s actually out there in the adult world, like doing taxes or writing checks or anything? I mean, “It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient to get you through your examinations, which after all, is what school is all about.” School children are often under the impression that getting A’s in all their classes ensures a successful future, but really, it’s so ignorant because the real world isn’t just one big question-and-answer paper. There is so much more to the world than being able to give back information like some kind of super-computer, and brainwashing children into thinking that theory is key is just going to lead to a bunch of children falling flat on their faces when they’re pushed into the adult world and feel as if everything new they try to do is wrong because it wasn’t taught to them step-by-step. I just really love Harry’s line, “And how is theory supposed to prepare us for what’s out there?” because I feel as if sometimes we just learn things for the sake of knowing them, despite whether it is actually useful. Yes, school is important, and getting bad grades isn’t a good way to start your future, but it’s so much more than that, you see.
this sounds a lot like something Hermione would say
