Life's a @!#$% and then you don't die!Today not the greatest of all days, well this week not the greatest of all weeks. Sorry for complaining to all of you. University is killing me. I'm usually a happy go lucky kind of person , but i've had like 2 hours of sleep a day, maybe less so I am a tad cranky. I AM SOOO SWAMPED WITH WORK!! Its not even funny. AND to top it all off my laptop just won't start up, now of all days, not fun. Lost all my work, everything, THAT includes 8 major assignments. So I apologize in advance if I don't respond or anything. I am not ignoring you, just trying to get my life organized.
Bullying and What it doesA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully's another child, they may say they're sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on or better yet, if you're a parent or a teacher, do it with your child/children.

Despite the sun just tipping the horizon, she saw sweat prickling his brow and his eyes squinting against the light. The fine lines on his face were suddenly accentuated by shadow, and for a moment, she swelled with wonder.
'Maria, come here,' he said, waving her over. 'You're not going to learn anything sitting all the way over there.'
Excitement sparked her limbs into motion, and she crawled over to sit next to him, careful to tuck her skirt beneath her thighs to avoid the dirt.
He picked up a pair of clippers from beside him. 'Now, you need to snipe back these diseased parts here and there from the base of the plant. It helps it grow better.'
Snipping off two pieces of wood with ease, he deposited them in Maria's outstretched hand. Their rough textu
