until Intro to Education!!! I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a class in my life.
and I feel completely unprepared. If I had to pick one negative about being a language major, it would most definitely be the cumulative nature of my classes…. nothing like starting off with a 9:30AM Greek class after a summer of brain drain! Here’s hoping I expect more out of myself than my professor does…
that this week would be so time consuming… I haven’t even started classes yet and I’ve had almost no time to tumble. I debated starting my Tumblr in September instead of over the summer, and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to myself because this Tumblr definitely wouldn’t exist if I had waited.

All day I haven’t really had time to stop and think about the fact that another summer is over, but now I’m realizing it and it kind of does make me sad… I’ll always miss home more than I want to admit, even though I love being on my own.
Right now, though, the number one thing I miss about home besides my family is my air conditioning. I complained every single day that it was too cold in my house, but now that I’m dripping sweat in a dorm room with no AC and no fan… I take it all back.
NPR has also created a community-edited guide to accessible playgrounds. Check it out, add some more!
Makes me rethink whether my classroom is inclusive.
Oh hey look, a 12 year-old just grasped the main concepts of The Hunger Games more accurately than most media networks.
Cleaning out my filing cabinet, I found this handout that I made for my mini-comics class. Hope it’s helpful! Remember, it ain’t only for comics. Self-publish short stories, collections of drawings or sketches, or blank for journals/sketchbooks, etc.
