The Little Matchgirl
A little insight! This is a “children’s book” set in the time of the Industrial Revolution.
A young girl has to go out and sell matches and is not allowed to come back until she does because her father is an abusive drunk to her and her siblings. Their mother is dead. On this particular day, she can NOT sell her matches so she retreats to a corner but it’s winter so it is dreadfully cold. With ever match she lights, she dreams of Christmas related things such as a well decorated tree or a Christmas dinner. But she can’t have them because she is too poor. With her last match, she dreams of spending time with her grandmother on Christmas but it fades too soon. That being her last one, she goes to sleep but her grand mother retrieves her.
If you couldn’t recognize it in the last gif, the girl has frozen to death.
LISTEN UP WE WERE ASSIGNED BOOKS IN GRADE 2 TO DO FOR LIT CIRCLES AND MY GROUP WAS GIVEN THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL AND MY MOTHER COULDN’T BRING ME TO SCHOOL THE NEXT DAY BECAUSE I READ THE WHOLE THING AND NO ONE ELSE KNEW SHE WAS DEAD BUT I FUCKING KNEW AND I WAS SOBBING MY EYES OUT AS A CHILD.
WE DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL OKAY?
THIS IS NOT A CHILDREN’S BOOK, THIS IS A STORY WRITTEN BY THE DEVIL HIMSELF.
Well actually it was written by Hans Christian Andersen… But then again that doesn’t help much since he also wrote The Little Mermaid (and anyone who read that knows THAT story doesn’t end well.)
Just reading the description I started to cry again, this story is so painful and so beautiful, I remember when my mom used to read it to me and my sister (AuroraLynne), I could never hold my tears. Just when I tought I would be able to see it without crying, I burst into tears again.
DANG, I see why they never released this in public. BECAUSE SHE DIED!
A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
yes hello i am here to learn geometries
That crow is more prepared than some of my students.
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
THEY ARE SO SMART I LOVE THEM
Crows are thought to be self aware by some scientists. Its perfectly possible the crow wants to return the pen to humans. Knowing it belongs to humans.
Corvids. Who KNOWS. :)
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
Crows are definitely smarter than humans
