How Law School Ruins Your Life #3billion – You suddenly realize that every great library in movies is actually filled with law books (you can tell from the bindings). And suddenly the library seems just a little bit less fun and more like school 0_0 SADNESS!!!

Brainless Reading makes a Brainless People

Annabel Lee

10 Mar

I wanted my Poetry students to see how Poetry is supposed to sound–not as flat words read off a page, but with the emotions of the author. There are alternative theories as to the identity of Annabel Lee, but this is the more common belief, and the one I personally subscribe to.

Music: Felipe Sarro (Bach, Orchestral Suite 3)

Art I Love – Books

“Books” by LAS-T

Sent to me by a friend a long time ago; I’ve just always loved this picture. Probably because laying down reading books was how I always spent my time as a teen 🙂

New Tool on Facebook

9 Apr

New Tool on Facebook–The Smiley-Face!

So, I didn’t really notice this before, but apparently there is yet another new addition to the Facebook experience.   If you look at the box where you insert your status updates (i.e. “I’m totally ready for Spring!”–>My post today :P)  you will notice a new smiley-face button.

If you click that smiley-face, you will see the options pictured below.  There you can choose from a long list of things including “I’m reading such and such” or “I’m feeling wonderful” to your status.  I’ve seen this option on other journal software programs (DeviantArt, Livejournal), but it is new to FB!  What do you think?
