5 Grammar Rules That Make No Effing Sense – Lit Reactor

I have been teaching a grammar class for 3 years now, and one of the most common complaints I get is that the rules people have learned have no context or are based on antiquated practices.

I like grammar rules but some times I just feel confused by them. English is such a shit language.

25 Ashley: Why I Hate The SATs – The Mortified Podcast

The diaries of a high school misfit who in an attempt to fit in found herself in a series of epic, embarrassing moments — culminating at the SATs.

Press play and laugh your ass off :)

The ADA at 25: How One Law Helped Usher in An Age of Accessible Design – Curbed

In 1990, a group of activists and legislators were fighting to pass the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a far-reaching piece of legislation that sought to guarantee equal rights for then roughly 40 million American citizens with disabilities,

I work with children with special needs so the ADA pertains to my job directly. It’s a very important piece of legislature and we all ought to know more about it.

Going Nowhere – Only 100 Words

‘Don’t you wish we could move in at the top of that watchtower and leave the barrier between us and the world?’

New blog I found with 100 word stories. I envy anyone who can say anything in only 100 words, such brevity eludes me in writing.

New Dark Matter Theory Says It’s A Type Of Particle We’ve Known About For 80 Years – I

A team of scientists has theorized that dark matter is not the exotic particle everyone thought it would be, but is instead nothing more than a different version of the humble pion, known to science since 1935.

It’s like when I’m getting ready for work and I can’t find my shoes and I freak out until my girlfriend points them out right in front of me and tells me to put my damn glasses on….sort of.

How Will We Die? – The School of Life

Death will come to all of us, but how and when? A little film investigates – and is meant to scare us in good way, remembing us of the preciousness of each new day.

Press play and get real slapped with reality. It’s depressing but you’ll appreciate it.

Writer’s Quote Wednesday: John Roderick – ZEN AND Π

I realized I’m not so special and that ideas rarely belong to one person for very long. They are slippery, flighty things. They are fickle. But I have learned that while they are with me I ought to roll around with them and make the best of the time we have together.

This ones from me. I wrote about how other ideas become our ideas and only to then leave us to become someone else’s ideas.

And that’s it for this week. Have you read, watched, heard, or written an interesting thing this week? If so, share with the class by leaving a link in the comments :)
