    That would be when his followers would go through the roof if the pictures match the content.

    Blogs develop over time, just like the writer. I read some of the early posts in my blog and I can't believe I wrote them, they're so bad. There are other things I wrote and I don't know how I did it, I wish I could write like that all the itme.

    In school I took some movie class. I forget what it was, some kind of elective thing where we initially watched Monty Python and stuff. At the end we had to write plays. Other students read the drafts and we redid them each week. One guy, a guy that couldn't take anything seriously, wrote this terrible thing, just horrible. We were laughing not because it was funny but it sounded like a 2nd grader wrote it. Over the course of maybe 10 classes he revised and refined his ridiculous play. At the end it was probably the best one of the class, entertaining, not too serious, definitely engaging. I was really surprised as I figured he had no chance. In the end I thought he had at least "most improved" down and was a podium in terms of "best play".

    Keep writing and develop your style. Take serious feedback seriously. Do what you want but do things properly.

    Nope, just an admin. More on the physical plant/operations side, but I work with RDs and ADs, and each year I hire and work with 8-12 students. 3-4 on FTE roles, others part time.

    Plenty close enough with the students to know kids who are on suspension, near suspension, depressed, LOA, etc. One of my best workers got himself arrested last year, spent 3 days in jail before he was released. His parents refused to bail him out and he was too embarrassed to call me.

    Most college kids didn't go through severe bullying and move on to become one of the highest achievers at their high school. I just need some commentary on my writing.

    Already discovered; it's hot, crowded and boring except for the girls

    See, you sound offended now after I went out of my way to not give pointless destructive criticism.

    The perfect troll.

    ...Hilarious. Goog Will Hunting was 1997, 2 years after my birth.
