Back to School – PhD vs Marriage

Good luck on your way back to school, students! I thought I’d throw a comic out to everyone on their way to higher learning.

This fall for me is all about 2 things. 1) Weddings! (and all of the stuff that goes with them: bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinners. Note: for other people, I’m not getting married). 2) Sending in my PhD applications again. Woo! So I personally enjoy that this comic mixes the two!

Good luck, all!

Lord of the Rings vs Harry Potter?

This is completely for all of my nerdy, book-loving readers.

I’m a HUGE nerdy, book-lover. I even took a Tolkien class in college, so when I came across this review on IMDB (I found it on Iwastesomuchtime.com), part of me was a little crushed. And part of me couldn’t wait to share it!

I really hope this kid found out that Tolkien died when Rowling was about 8 years old….

Flowchart for Summer Reading

Let’s be real, if you’re reading my blog, there is a really good chance that you’re a bit on the nerdy side and like to read (as do I). I feel this way because these are some of my most popular posts:

So I’m thinking that you may really enjoy this flowchart from Teach.com (and even if you like it here, you might want to click on the link because I’m sure they would love the page views, too):

So what do you think? Did this help you add any books to your summer reading list? I sure added some to mine.

 

 

Sunday Morning Snark – Grammar Matters

This doesn’t have anything to do with yesterday’s motivation; but I saw it on Facebook, loved it, and thought I would share. I hope you also get a kick out of it.
