Classical Music

"I love classical music. It makes you smart. And you know who hates classical music? Dumb people. Because it's like the sunlight to a vampire. When you're dumb, you void all things that are smart. They hurt. You don't want to listen to this, and then you label it for Poindexters or idiots. You get to get a lot done to classical music. If you put classical music on, you can write, you can clean, you can do everything you need to do. You can take care of business. That's why it's smart music that was written by super smart people, as opposed to the popular music which is dumb music written by who? Retards. So do you want to listen to something Britney Spears creates, or do you want to listen to something a genius creates? Which one do you think will make you smarter?"

Just some things I jotted down on a piece of paper and I don't know where else to save it at this particular moment, because I need to throw away everything in my classroom, pretty much. Both from Adam Carolla.

Friday Quick Shots

Tis Friday once again. This quick shot will be short. Yearbook delivery today. Went mostly smoothly. Four more days of school, mostly just screwing around. No more zero period. No more 6 AM wake up. For a few months, at least.

I hope I don't have to post often with these. I'm grading Civil War tests, so I am compelled to list the "Best" answers. Enjoy

What advantages did the North and South have, and why did the North win? List at least three advantages for each side.

they (North) shot abraham Lincoln so the south was upset and they did have anymore reinforcement.


I've wanted a way to put my blog right onto my website, while being able to post to it from anywhere. It looks like this Widget thing will provide an acceptable substitute. I worked on the page again tonight.
And now I'm avoiding sleep once again.

Three years in the making...

I've finally started updating my website. I gave the look an overhaul, though I don't plan to keep it looking exactly that way forever. I don't like the Mac looking buttons, but I didn't want to wait on the whole thing until I finally created one that I like on my own. So what's there is fine for now. Next I need to get all of the old stuff updated to the new look. If I'm lucky, I'm updating it in a way that will make it easier to change the overall look in the future. That's kinda cool. I want to get it going before I head to Europe. That's in less than three weeks. Sweet!

Friday Quick Shots

Yesterday was the GATE Newscope all stars competition. That’s always a fun day. We ate at Red Robin and the mall and take a lap around the mall. Pretty exciting. Today was the eighth grade picnic. That’s always a fun day as well.

I went golfing after school. It was a fundraiser for Alhambra high school girls basketball or something like that. It was a tournament too, but I don’t think we won.

Still haven’t been to the movies in a while. Spider-Man 3 was the last I saw. That might have ruined me from watching any of the part threes this summer. Oh well.

Only two weeks of school left. Actually, nine days. We get out on Thursday this year instead of Friday. And for yearbook, this is the last week. We don’t have zero period at all during finals week. But then again, this is the weekly pass out the yearbooks, so is the second most stressful week of the year in that class. For middle school, it should be are really easy last couple weeks.
