Just as a heads up, I thought that from time to time, I’d post the unfinished drafts that I had saved in here from my long… LONG hiatus! Enjoy!
[From January 2, 2017]: Sometimes I get angry at the fact that public school students have such a disadvantage in the college admissions process for top-tier universities.
And then I hear “Friends, Romans, Frenchman, lend me your ears” on the morning announcements and all of a sudden, I understand the bias entirely.
I don’t know what it is about high school, but my tolerance for absolute stupidity has drastically shrunk. Such an abhorrent corruption of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar would have been forgivable — if it weren’t an announcement written by our school’s Shakespeare Club.
But in all seriousness, I’ve always enjoyed the inadvertent slip-ups from high school kids that, if heard in isolation, would cause our elders to lose hope for the future. We’re here to learn, right?
