google docs is so good btw, i love this shit

also i bought a v small chromebook for literally just writing and taking places because my poor clunky HP pavilion laptop is very annoying to carry around.

Let me repeat this and agree. Google docs is awesome and chrome books are awesome (and cheap). They are limited in that you can’t really do much gaming or visual editing if you are into that. But for general word processing and internet use they are fabulous. 10/10 would recommend if you want one for that purpose.

I don’t normally share student work, but I had to share this. They were supposed to fill in the 1st, 3rd, and 6th steps of the scientific method and I was just dying when I read what they wrote for 6.

For the record the 6th step is about sharing results.

in all my years that i have been on this earth i have not played spin the bottle once. does this mean that i’ve never actually lived? do a lot of people actually even play spin the bottle? or is its importance and prevalence stretched and exaggerated in media? these are the questions of the hour

Are teen parties with alcohol and red solo cups even real?!!?!

Has anyone ever participated in a food fight?!?

Life is overwhelming

My life is literally
6:30 wake up
7:30-3:30 work
3:30-6 study/work on Masters
??? Eat ???
6:00-8:00 grade papers and prep
8:00-9:00 Minecraft
9:00-6:30 sleep and repeat

Because, seriously, no matter how overwhelmingly busy it is you’ve gotta make time for Minecraft.

Help finding an online translation program

This may be a long shot, but does anyone in the Arabic tag know of a good online translator from English to Arabic. I have a student this year (from Iraq) that does not understand much English and cannot understand the documents that I’ve tried to translate using Google Translate.

Here is my final quilt representing what it looks like driving through the Central Valley from more figurative to more literal. The camera had a bit of trouble capturing the colors, but the first picture looks the most true to life.

I presented it at the quilt guild meeting. Give me a group of 40 students during the day and I am fine, but give me a group of 100 older women and I become totally awkward and nervous.

(If you turn the quilt upside down the right piece becomes a face.)
