“Did you know Shakespeare is the only author to have his own Dewey decimal number? 822.33. That would make a good tattoo.”

—englishprof, who would never in a million years get a tattoo, but if he did, it would be a super nerdy one.

Can anyone recommend a good long-form article on the mistakes that were made by the media in reporting on the Boston Marathon bombing last year?

I remember reading a piece with a good timeline, but I can’t for the life of me remember where I found it. I would very much like for my Critical Reading students to read it this week as we discuss how to critically read journalism.

I got my acceptance confirmation today!

Starting this fall, I’ll be pursuing a Master’s of Social Work at Indiana University.

englishprof has forbidden me from losing my shit thinking about logistics until tomorrow.

So. Tonight we eat steaks and celebrate. Yay for education!

I may need to buy this. It’s my most irrational fear every morning, apart from forgetting my keys.

A requirement for safety really.

Five stages of spring break ending

englishprof:

Denial: “I mean, yeah, I go back to work tomorrow, but I still have this lazy Sunday.”

Anger: “NO, I ACTUALLY DON’T. I HAVE A LOT OF GRADING I PUT OFF ALL WEEK. SHIT.”

Bargaining: “Do you think it’s possible I can convince the college to just pay me to stay home in my pajamas and read novels and poetry?”

Depression: “Oh God. Oh God. Oh God. How many weeks are left in the term? Oh God, Oh God, Oh God.”

Acceptance: I’ll let you know what this feels like when I get to it.

englishprof:

I put on Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours when the six-month-old was melting down and he stopped crying and started smiling. So we know he actually has a human heart; this is good.

I’m afraid to test this on Judah. He told me last week that he prefers Raffi’s “Bananaphone” over Graceland. His heart probably just hasn’t grown in yet, right?
