today i made this fancy storage box for my third graders’ earbuds. 
i bought 2 sets of these earbuds (10 pairs for $10!) and this plastic storage box on amazon.
then i taped small numbered squares of card stock onto the back side of each section of the box. i used masking tape to wrap numbers around each set of earbuds too. 
now each kid will be assigned a number and no one will share ear germs. every once in a while i’ll lysol the whole box and at the end of the year i’ll toss these in the trash and get a new set, but i’ll be able to re-use the box! i’m pretty excited about using these in my classroom this year!  : )  

For when I work in a 21st century classroom!

Stealing this idea. And totally buying those ear buds from amazon.

Save this one for a night when all you want is for your brain to let you rest. Too often I go to bed, my body exhausted, my mind unable to stop moving. Luckily, there’s this masterful version of “Once Upon a December” from the (highly underrated) animated movie Anastasia. It’s a perfect piece to guide you to a peaceful slumber, because this music? It’s the stuff of dreams.

Crying because when Beatrice says to Leo “when it comes down to it, I’m going to remember you believed a backstabbing, pigheaded, idiot over your own little sister,” it means that she’s also always going to remember that Benedick stood by her from the very beginning, never doubted Hero, and supported her when (at least it seems like) all her other friends were either bystanders or actively took Claudio’s side, and that’s going to mean the world to her.

What a perfect, beautiful ship.

MILEY CYRUS OPTS OUT OF VMA ACCEPTANCE SPEECH TO ADVOCATE FOR HOMELESS YOUTH

Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, but she didn’t accept the Moonman trophy herself.

See the full speech here.

For all the criticism she gets, you have to give Miley Cyrus props for this. She has a very engaged young audience so asking them to part of the solution, and focusing their efforts in one city was a good move. 

You can go straight to the campaign here.

Not to mention a brilliant PR move. I’m sure her publicist isn’t hating it.
