Hey elementary school teachers: don’t you ever tell me that a student “can’t do much” again. Do I make myself clear?

Happy Holidays! 🙂

How to Turn Your Bedroom Lights off With Twitter [VIDEO]

Hey all! So I know I haven’t blogged lately, mostly due to the business that this last few weeks has caused, and I’ll try to give you an update on things as the semester comes nearer to an end, but I thought that you might appreciate a little teaser while you wait.

MSNBC Keith Olbermann on Prop 8, Marriage and More

I saw this somewhere on Facebook and was completely and utterly struck by it, so felt I needed to share it with all of you.

They sum it up perfectly.
