You know how you know you're short?

Man, I wish that was a joke.
It was intended as a nice gesture when I was moving out and getting my own place.... but I have yet to hear the end of that one from the rest of my family

When are teachers going to realize that kids don't give two ***** about Shakespeare or have no ****ing idea what he is saying half the time?

Comedian Bo Burnham said in one of his specials," Poetic talent is easy to fake when thy sentences doth no ****ing sense make," and I couldn't agree more.

My 5'2" mother has a stepladder, but never uses it. I am always on high shelf duty in my house.

I loved Shakespeare and read classic literature regularly for fun now that I'm no longer in school.

What are you kidding? Thanks to Shakespeare, I can make an insult sound funny to the person I'm insulting!

He is still one of the greatest writers in the language. Leaving him out would be an even worse sin.

Shakespeare is actually some of the more entertaining stuff you'll read in the classroom.
And I mean that seriously... once you get past the old English and start keying in on themes, it's great, often hilarious, stuff.

I have my issues with other pieces of classic literature, but Shakespeare is definitely worth your time.

That's about how tall one of my ex'es was. He said he never sat so much in his life. I hated when he stood next to me so I'd always yell at him to sit down so I wouldn't look so short

My ex said she didn't mind it because she could wear whatever shoes she wanted when she was with me and she would never look too tall. One of my good friends is 5'7 so I could see why that would be a problem for some people

I loved Shakespeare. It's often both hilarious and has a great plot. Hamlet remains one of my favorite things I've read

Ah, she's lucky she's a shoe girl.

Any heel over 3" and it doesn't matter how tall it makes me look, I'll be prying myself off the ground anyway.

While Shakespeare sounded more like we do, I have read more since hs/college than when I was in it.

See how I made a sentence that is incoherent? Shakespeare's influence.

Maybe once I'm out of college I might, but now it just seems like a waste of time. I'm reading MacBeth right now for an AP class, and I'm just going through the motions.

I mean maybe if I made a real effort to understand it and actually examine it word by word I'd care more about it, but in high school, kids just do **** to get it over with. I could care less what the novel is about as long as I ace the tests and quizzes.

It's not that uncommon. I used to belong to a 24 hour gym in n.VT. I'd get out of work at 11:30pm and head to the gym. Sometimes I'd be the only person there, which was a bit creepy because it was a huge 2-floor gym. Having control of the music was awesome though.

My HS Shakespeare teacher was one of the best teachers I've ever had. He made it interesting even for the kids who wouldn't normally have cared. We're talking, he even got the dumb jocks and motorheads to READ Shakespeare, perhaps the most amazing feat I've seen a teacher pulls off in my entire education, from pre-school through Masters.

And you know who isn't shocked in the least bit?

Has has an apartment in the Bronx. Too bad it's not a loft in Soho, that would have been even better.

Seven things I hate about you, Miley Cyrus' musical adaptation, is also quite well done
