What do you most value in your friends?
Their continued existence.
—Christopher Hitchens (via observando)
Build a ship before you burn a bridge.
—Anonymous (via psych-facts)
Col John Stapp Takes a Lot of G’s:
Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.
—Henry Ward Beecher (via observando)
When you are attracted to people, it’s because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most.
—Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home (via psych-facts)
Tip for all my student readers: if you’re too lazy to use a bibliography creator like NoodleBib or RefWorks, let Google generate your bibliography entries for you. All you have to do is google the article/book title in Google Scholar, click “cite” at the bottom of the search result, and copy either the MLA, APA, or Chicago cite into your word document.
Signal boost because omg how did I not know this in college?
Since registration is starting soon I figure this is ample time to remind the six people who look at my Tumblr that citing your sources is really important in college and that this will be your best friend forever.
If you’re in high school and want to go to college? Learn to source! You’ll be way ahead of the curve and it’s 100% more important than knowing what the hell a predicate nominative is.
I use http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/ to figure out how to cite for my papers, and it’s been quite useful for the three years I’ve been at this!
