Quotation marks make all the difference
Well, my sleep schedule is back to normal, I'm happy to report. (Which for me means going to bed sometime around 1am...)
When I got home tonight, I was full of grumpiness at my Spanish class because half of the class doesn't understand the difference between when to use the preterite and when to use the imperfect. This only made me grumpy because I already understood the concept, and I wanted to move on. I'm an academic snob. Sorry.
Anyways, in an effort to cure myself of my grumpiness, I ate a leftover waffle and read the quote-books. And I found some gems that I don't think have been shared yet. So here they are! There are LOTS, so have fun. =)
Should you be grumpy, I hope these make you smile. And if you're smiling, I hope they make you laugh. Enjoy!
