Don't use "everybody": Active listening in teaching

kellymce:

As promised, I’m writing up my reflections on the sessions I went to at the White Privilege Conference. This is all about Active Listening For Social Justice, led by Pippi Kessler.

Active listening can be radical and empowering: to really listen to someone is to show that…

"I have a little girl at home that I love so much, but I also love my job. Part of me wants to be home all the time to see every little change she goes through. But part of me feels like I owe it to her to be what I always wanted to be."

GPOYW, right down to the library setting.

Benedict Cumberbatch: The Alternate Timeline Fan Fiction

lazybookreviews:

This is my masterpiece:

BENEDICT: During the second week of Hamlet, my publicist asked me if I could meet briefly with a fan. It’s a common enough request, and, of course, I dread it. But he said, “look, she’s written a bunch of odd, intrusive, sexual stories about you, and this brilliant, as-yet-unpublished scholarly monograph on two leading pieces of Mystrade fanfic–”

REPORTER: Mystrade?

BENEDICT (waves dismissively): It’s the imagined pairing of Lestrade and Mycroft, it’s the only slash worth reading, it’s brilliant, it makes so much sense.
