teach her to follow the words  
I've been on a poetry kick something fierce the past couple of days. Poetry is one of those things I always wish I could do. Poetry and lyrics. When they're done right they make words mean so much, they make it beautiful and sometimes they can make it hurt, but they'll make you love it when they do.

I'm a sucker for words, is the thing, always and all the time. It's why Pete Wentz has a special place in my heart, and why Crush is always right by my bedside. It's why I write, and some days, it's why I do anything at all.

My point here is:

Have a poem I just recently found! And feel free to show me one you love, too!

I'll teach her to be whole, to be holy )

Because I'm incredibly kind, allow me to put the part of this post people will actually care about up top.

The Weepies - Be My Thrill
For all I'm not totally head over heels for the new album, this song has just made my entire week.
"And we tumble down like Jack and Jill / and I miss all of the joy you kill / but I love you still"

Also! Black Cards! My Chem! GIVE ME MUSIC, YOU GUYS. I WANT ALL THE MUSIC. I AM TIRED OF WAITING.

Now, blathering about writing, goals, word counts and other things that basically amount to tl;dr Nichole is boring. )

In conclusion: I realized today that I'm turning 25 in two and half weeks, and my entire life is basically this Hyperbole and a Half post on loop. But with less banking and more homework.

What. the. shit.

You should all rec me porn.

why yes, I should be in bed  
I'm not even going to try and pretend this is homework related. Whatever, like any of you all are somehow unaware of the fact that I'm the nerdiest nerd to ever nerd.

POSSESSIVE PROPER NOUNS



Specifically, possessive proper nouns when the proper noun in question ends with an "S", but isn't plural. Does the additional "S" get added? Does it not? Is it one of those "S vs. Z" things where a different correct answer exists depending on where in the world you actually are?

Does anyone but me actually care about this at all?

Why is English such a difficult language?

INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW.

To simplify (aka tl;dr):

[Poll #1611325]



And just to preemptively defend myself against the deep, overwhelming feeling of stupidity and shame, I have actually looked into this and seen arguments for and against both ways. I'm the worst grammar nerd ever. /o\
