  1. Wow! I can't believe I didn't come back to your site after nominating you to read your responses! I apologize.

    2 things:
    Why do you dislike advisory? (our campus is dealing with many back-and-forth discussions on whether we should keep it or not.)


    I love the comment about giving everyone the middle name of Marie! I do the same thing!! After all, it IS practically everyone's middle name. Right?

    Happy blogging...
