15 Signs You Have The Cutest Teacher Ever

15 Signs You Have The Cutest Teacher Ever

Is your teacher the cutest of them all? Does your heart beat faster when the bell rings for class (and you’re already sitting at the desk, of course, because you’re just that keen)? Your teacher sounds pretty cute to me. Here are some signs that you have found the Surprised Kitty of cute teachers.

1.Your teacher loves to give out free food.

We all know food is the best way to a person’s heart. Any teacher that brings snacks to a classroom or says those golden words: “if you’re going to eat in this lesson, you must share with the whole room,” must be incredibly loved. And that’s how we end up falling head over heels for biscuits and the art teacher all at once.

 2. Your teacher wears the coolest clothes.

Dressing right is key. We all know the teacher look – if it involves dressing-gown style cardigans, leather elbow patches, thick Trelawney lenses, frumpy jumpers, or baggy cuff-linked shirts, we’re just not interested. But is that – is that a pencil skirt? Is he wearing Hollister? Ooh lala, French is suddenly our kind of language.

3. Your teacher is totally down with the kids.

They don’t even mean to be cool, but they just so happen to have a Twitter account and an uber cool Instagram full of foodie pics (our favourite), sunsets, and ironic selfies. And even though your ‘follow’ was never reciprocated, you still stalk the account at least once a day.

4. Your teacher drops the mask once in a while.

We all treasure those moments when the teacher admits that they are not just a teacher and shows us pictures of the kids, or lets slip about a drunken escapade over the weekend. We’re not just the students anymore – we’re equals. Oh my gosh, we’re friends.

5. Sometimes, your teacher is just as bored as you are.

We’ve all had those lessons where the teacher ditches the lesson plan. “Let’s have a debate.” “Let’s watch this film that’s distantly related to World War I.” “Why don’t you all write a play about the American Civil War and act it out?”  We love the chance to get creative and throw away the textbook for those vital minutes of the day. And we love Mr. Thompson for it too.

6. Your teacher even gets tipsy at Prom.

That English teacher who stumbles in her heels, the math professor who throws up on his shoes – it’s all so human. The easiest way to fall into a teacher crush is discovering that… they’re human too?! Who knew?

7. Your teacher is on your level.

The teachers that host a debate about the pros and cons of Zayn leaving One Direction, who discuss the ethics of a ‘cut for Zayn’ hashtag and help you work out what the hell is going on in the run up to an election – the teachers that engage you as a person in society and not a child in a school, those are the teachers that are in your fondest thoughts.

8. Your teacher can be smooth as silk and cool as a cucumber.

They never get flustered in the cinema when you’re in the next row of a Fifty Shades of Grey screening. You’ll still get a wave and a smile and you won’t be ignored in a shop queue, on a bus ride, or in a restaurant. You both have lives, it’s no big deal to wander into them outside of the classroom.

9. Comedy is your teacher’s first language.

You have banter, and they give as good as they get. You drew a rude part of the human body on the board, did you? They might happen to remark on its rather unimpressive size and speculate on the perpetrator. They might call you nicknames or give you a stupid hat to wear when you give the wrong answer. They make you laugh, and you think they’re a hunk and a half.

10. No way – your teacher makes mistakes?!

Sometimes, they even spell things wrong on the board and congratulate you when you correct them. They can forget their textbook or arrive late to class. They’re your favourite, they’re adorable, because a bit of human frailty is always instantly lovable.

12. Your teacher loves to sit on the desk.

I know, it doesn’t sound like a big deal, but when they teeter on the edge like that and slouch just like you do? You’re thinking — what a thrill seeker, they’re totally casual and cool.

13. They can be totally badass.

This is a rare occurrence, but when the moment comes, we can’t help but get a bit hot under the collar. They’re angrily snapping a pencil in two or ripping pages out of your folder, because they care.

14.  Your teacher loves a good criticism sandwich.

None of us likes to admit that our favourite teacher criticises our work, but let’s remember, folks — they do it because they care. So it’s lovely when those cutting negatives are squished between your excellent spelling and perfect grammar, not to mention a smiley face. Thanks, Mrs. Cogsworth, you’ve softened the blow.

15. Your teacher runs that extra mile.

There’s always one teacher who has a special warm place in our hearts. This gem stayed after school, did extra marking, tutored us into lunch – and although, admittedly, we didn’t enjoy it much at the time, we owe our A and our place at University to this marathon runner. All we can say is: thank you so much for your patience. We would have given up on ourselves way before you ever did.

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

10 Simple Ways To Always Think Positive Thoughts

Positive thinking can lead to a lot of positive change in your life. Developing an optimistic outlook can be good for both your physical and mental health.

But sometimes, certain situations arise in life that makes it hard to keep a positive outlook. Take steps to make positive thinking become more like your second nature and you’ll reap the biggest benefits.

Here are 10 ways to make thinking positive thoughts easy:

1. Spend Time with Positive People

If you surround yourself with constant complainers, their negativity is likely to rub off on you.

Spend time with positive friends and family members to increase the likelihood that their positive thinking habits will become yours too. It’s hard to be negative when everyone around you is so positive.

2. Take Responsibility for Your Behavior

When you encounter problems and difficulties in life, don’t play the role of the victim. Acknowledge your role in the situation and take responsibility for your behavior.

Accepting responsibility can help you learn from mistakes and prevent you from blaming others unfairly.

3. Contribute to the Community

One of the best ways to feel good about what you have, is to focus on what you have to give.

Volunteer in some manner and give back to the community. Helping others can give you a new outlook on the world and can assist you with positive thinking.

4. Read Positive and Inspirational Materials

Spend time each day reading something that encourages positive thinking. Read the Bible, spiritual material, or inspirational quotes to help you focus on what’s important to you in life. It can be a great way to start and end your day.

Some recommendations for you:

5. Recognize and Replace Negative Thoughts

You won’t be successful at positive thinking if you’re still plagued by frequent negative thoughts. Learn to recognize and replace thoughts that are overly negative. Often, thoughts that include words like “always” and “never” signal that they aren’t true.

If you find yourself thinking something such as, “I always mess everything up,” replace it with something more realistic such as, “Sometimes I make mistakes but I learn from them.”

There’s no need to make your thoughts unrealistically positive, but instead, make them more realistic.

6. Establish and Work Toward Goals

It’s easier to be positive about problems and setbacks when you have goals that you’re working toward. Goals will give you motivation to overcome those obstacles when you encounter problems along the way. Without clear goals, it’s harder to make decisions and gauge your progress.

Learn to set SMART goals to help you achieve more.

7. Consider the Consequences of Negativity

Spend some time thinking about the consequences of negative thinking. Often, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

For example, a person who thinks, “I probably won’t get this job interview,” may put less effort into the interview. As a result, he may decrease his chances of getting the job.

Create a list of all the ways negative thinking impacts your life. It likely influences your behavior, your relationships, and your feelings. Then, create a list of the ways in which positive thinking could be beneficial.

8. Offer Compliments to Others

Look for reasons to compliment others. Be genuine in your praise and compliments, but offer it frequently. This will help you look for the good in other people.

9. Create a Daily Gratitude List

If you start keeping a daily gratitude list, you’ll start noticing exactly how much you have to be thankful for. This can help you focus on the positive in your life instead of thinking about all the bad things that have happened in the day.

Getting in the habit of showing an attitude of gratitude makes positive thinking more of a habit. Here’re 40 Simple Ways To Practice Gratitude.

10. Practice Self-Care

Take good care of yourself and you’ll be more equipped to think positively.

Get plenty of rest and exercise and practice managing your stress well. Taking care of your physical and mental health will provide you with more energy to focus on positive thinking.
