5 Things Every Education Major Hates Hearing

The world needs teachers. Without teachers, there are no doctors, astronauts, engineers, scientists, politicians etc. From the early and most important years for education to grad school, we would be no where without teachers. Yet, current and future teachers seem to be questioned as to why they want to enter into a career with little pay and a lot of work. Being a teacher may not be the highest paying job but it is the most rewarding experience short-term and long-term. Here are 5 things every education major hates to hear:

1. "Why would you want to be a teacher? It pays nothing!"

Teaching isn't all about the money. Teachers are the most hard working, dedicated people who don't do their job for the money, they do it because they have a passion for inspiring children and making a change. Every education major goes into this career knowing the pay isn't going to be large but the rewarding experiences are constant.

2. "Why would you want to work with kids? I hate kids!"

Well if you hate kids it's probably a good thing you aren't a teacher. I on the other hand love kids and am the one choosing to work for hours on end every day to inspire them and teach the most important lessons they will learn.

3. "So don't you just read books and color all day or something?"

Yes I have been asked this question several times. Stopping myself from punching these people in the face was the hardest thing I've ever done. If you think this is all elementary teachers do, please for the love of god think again. Teachers have 12 hour days of lesson planning, teaching, working with co-workers, parents, and faculty members. There is so much goes on besides teaching and working with students during the day.

4. "Teaching sounds so easy and you get summers off!"

Whoever says this clearly does not know the first thing about teaching. Teaching is not easy and teachers get very little time during the summer off. They have to pack up their classroom, set up their new room, teach summer school, go to workshops, work second jobs and plan for the next year.

5. "Isn't teaching just like babysitting?"

If you ask this, you a literally too stupid to insult and you should probably go back to kindergarten to figure out the answer. I would explain it to you but I have lessons to plan for my full time babysitting gig.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
