A moonbow is a rainbow caused by moonlight. It’s a bit fainter than an actual rainbow. Moonbows are rare because moonlight is not very bright. A bright full moon is needed & it must be raining opposite the moon. The sky must be dark and the moon must be less than 42º high. (Source) (You may also like: 360 degree rainbows)

Bloodstone Academy is just plain weird, even to a Hogwarts professor.
It’s okay, Carlos is going to have plenty of time to get accustomed ;)

In case you didn’t know, October is learning disability awareness month! Also, you probably didn’t know I have one, since the general reaction I tend to get is “you don’t /look/ like you have a learning disability”.
That’s partially why I made this, because people seem to think you’re branded with it on your forhead when in real life it’s not like that at all—In fact, that mentality is probably what hurt my academic career for so long, because people with Dyscalculia often excel in other areas! I remember a lot if teachers/classmates/my own parents telling me to ‘just try harder’, because to them it seemed like I wasn’t applying myself. Dyscalculia is also not a ‘popular’ learning disability that’s talked about, it’s a pretty common occurance for me to have to give an explanation to others who think I’m ‘lazy’, so I figured this is a little educational as well as personal.
Those with Dyscalculia have trouble with*:•Counting, estimating, and measuring. •Learning math facts (like addition, subtraction, multiplication, ect). •Problem-solving skills. •Concepts of time and navigation (scheduling, telling the diffrence between directions). *Among other things, but those are the most common.
●Here are some Dyscalculia resources:
•Learning Disability Association of America- [ldaamerica.org/types-of-learning-disabilities/dyscalculia]
•National Center for Learning Disabilities- [ncld.org/types-learning-disabilities/dyscalculia/what-is-dyscalculia]
●Think you have Dyscalculia? Test yourself (Don’t self-diagnose, bring your results to your parent/school counselor/therapist and discuss further testing)
I did not know that Dyscalculia was a diagnosis that existed until a few years ago. Once I knew, it felt like I was aiming a flashlight back at my school career, finally able to see some things clearly. Ask me to read a novel and write a term paper overnight? Sure, no problem. Ask me to do a times table? Blind, near-sobbing panic.
Even now, if I have to do basic multiplication, if it’s not something that had a song from Schoolhouse Rock, I … I’m not sure I can do it.
This is all well and good, but as Tumblr is want to do, there are gonna be a lot of people who don’t realize the difference between disliking math and having an actual, diagnosed and discussed with your psychiatrist/therapist disability.
I seriously only passed my math classes from lots of help from a teacher and a friend who recognized my problem to friends who got fed up with me and did the work for me. I still dread the though of when i was a cashier people would change their amounts of change on the fly and then start screaming at me because it took me “too long” to figure out the amounts. People still dont see a disability and i get teased a ton for it. Including bosses, strangers, friends and my mother and agh. I hate it. This is a real thing and it does matter. No i do not “need to practice math more” or i “should have studied better in school” dangit i got a scholarship because of my grades and was in the honors programs throughout high school and college. Just because im unable to numbers and math does not make me dumb or a butt of your joke.
WAIT, I NEED TO FIX THIS.
