Son: Mum, I got detention.
Me: OMG, what did you do?
Son: I hit a kid.
Me: Well you know that will cost you a month without internet.
Son: But that kid said Harry Potter sucks.

phiLOLZophy: What Your Bookshelf Says About You →
philolzophy: I. Your bookshelf has mostly fiction books. A) Classic literature. You’re smart, reflective, and well-rounded. You don’t read gossip magazines and you appreciate the finer things in life. You don’t need someone to tell you what the finer things in life are. You’re also relatively joyless,…

Classes start on Monday
Physically, I am ready. I have my tuition paid for and my textbooks all in a pile. I have clothes to wear and paper to write one. If school started right this second, I’d be ready. Mentally ready, I am not. I am exhausted. Summer classes ended for me last Monday and they were kind of brutal. Imagine doing a whole semester’s worth of studying/essays/readings in five weeks. It was torture. And to...

ixhearxmusic asked: Hi, I'm Bri, thanks for following! <3 I love that you're a book nerd and you blog text posts and not just pictures, so I followed back. I hope we can chat and get to know each other a little. :3
tuesdayisgone asked: If you join Amazon Prime as a student, you get free 2-day shipping on your orders. That's how I got most of my textbooks. I also rented some from Half. Just a tip :)
That awkward moment when you go textbook shopping...
I hate college textbooks…wait, let me rephrase that, I hate textbooks PRICES! I normally love getting new books, but not when it comes to textbooks for classes. I could have the most amazing shopping spree at Hastings with all the money that goes into purchasing textbooks. And I feel so exploited after buying them, like I’m being ripped off. And I know there are cheaper methods of...
Does anyone use PaperBackSwap?
I do and I just posted about 16 books. Some of the books posted are: Magyk by Angie Sage The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini Icy Sparks by Gwyn Hyman Rubio Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Etc. For those that don’t know what PaperBackSwap is, it’s a site where you post books you don’t really want and you request books you want from other members. It’s kind of the...
So, my fall schedule is pretty much perfect.
And I’m looking forward to starting classes on Monday. I’m taking: Government Botany World Literature News Publications Creative Writing Computer Applications Okay, so I’m not so excited about my government class because I had no other choice but to take it with a professor who’s ancient and has the power to put students to sleep with his voice, but other than that I’m good. I think...
Not one teacher has caused me so many headaches as...
She’s actually a professor, but I don’t think she deserves that title. Why do I dislike her so much? She assigns a pile of homework as tall as Mt. Everest every single day. Do I look like I have nothing better to do? She emails aid for homework two hours before it’s due! This is no joke! How the hell is that supposed to help me now? I turned that shit in two days ago?!...
snazzandpizzazz: I’m bothered that literature is dying. I’m bothered that most of us would rather waste time watching some reality show than reading. I’m bothered that the very thing that makes us civilized, language, the written language, to be more specific is becoming less important. What’s wrong with people? Is a little thought a little too much now?

I was able to get into all the classes I wanted! Except Botany, but I’ll go talk to the professor later.
