Sooooo I’ve seen several of my friends ask for a mixed CD exchange. I’m pretty much free now that school is basically over, so I have taken on the challenge!

The rules are pretty simple. If you ask for a CD to be sent to you, you must send a CD to someone else. You also MUST have an active…

Reblogging for those that may have missed it! Get your emails in and spread the word!

"Why do they always teach us that it’s easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It’s the hardest thing in the world—to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want."

Fahrenheit 451, one of the world’s greatest literary critiques and celebrations, a prophetic prediction of censorship in a dystopian future parallel to Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World, would not have been published but for the Playboy magazine.
Which leads me to type a series of words I genuinely never thought I’d type:
Thank you, Hugh Hefner, for your contribution to the world of classic literature.

Suddenly, there is a great rumbling.

Over hill, over dale, through forest, through fog, they come. Some walk. Some fly. Some crawl. Some simply move deep within the bowels of the earth. They are massive in number, terrifying in their fury. They blot out the sun from the grass below. They nearly shake the earth from orbit with their rage.

They are the English majors. 

They give a fuck about an Oxford comma.

Does anyone use “Grammar Journals”? Essentially, on the left side of a notebook, you take grammar notes. On the right sides, students are able to try out the grammar rule/topic in some sort of a writing prompt or activity.
I like it and want to use it next year. I could also have my sixth graders glue things into the notebooks (hand outs/guided notes).

I like this idea, reblogging to try and remember it.

I knew it was coming, I sensed it, and I’m pretty sure I read it in a spoiler somewhere long ago…But I was still in shock. I couldn’t believe it. And just like Pudge, I wanted to believe it was just another practical joke. I kept reading to see if it was. If it was all just a cruel joke. But no. It wasn’t. I feel as if I have lost a friend. fishingboatproceeds you are a wonderful evil genious whose stories I love/hate.
