Accursed school!

I haven’t written a post in so long. I haven’t done writing either (well, not Tacita at least). I haven’t done much drawing, or really anything that I have wanted to do. That is all because of the menace known as school. They have decided to ramp up the pressure, the stress and the homework […]

Are English speakers lazy?

No, I’m not being as rude as the title suggests! It’s just something that I thought of, and I SHOULD have put in my “Pondering on language” post, but I forgot, and it seems like a topic worthy of a small post of its own. So now to the actual question– are English speakers lazy? […]

PLEASE DON’T!!!!!!’ but instead she said ‘It’s literature.’ […]

An HG Idea

With only a few months until THG movie, things are getting more exciting! I was looking at some HG fansites and one particular one caught my attention: Hunger Games Lessons. This website is encouraging teachers to teach THG in schools! One post said the teacher’s class got to do a mini class Hunger Games, and […]
