make it better by giving you a day off on Monday, before we...
BEGIN FINALIZATIONS AND OPEN MIC AGAIN!!!
"Why are we doing this already, Mike?" You may be asking. Well... that's because...GRADES ARE DUE NEXT FRIDAY!
Now, I know what you're thinking.
You're thinking, "really?
Have I done enough extra credit?
Is there anything else I can do?"
How about play a video game for extra credit?
Yeah, I'm that teacher. You can fill this out later:

First play the game "Everyday the Same Dream"
Then write in the comments below or on a separate sheet of paper how this game is like the poem "Richard Cory" or "Love Song for J. Alfred Prufrock"
Looking for some inspiration for the weekend?
Here's a link to an old video, from an old comedian with some words of wisdom.
The World is like a ride in an amusement park,
and when you choose to go on it you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are.
And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has
thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it's very loud. And it's
fun, for a while.
Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they've begun to
question, 'Is this real, or is this just a ride?', and other people have
remembered, and they've come back to us and they say 'Hey, don't worry.
Don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.' and we KILL THOSE PEOPLE.
"Shut him up! We have alot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP! Look at my
furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family. This just has to
It's just a ride.
But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that. You ever
noticed that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because ...
It's just a ride.
And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no
work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.
The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close
yourself off. The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one.
Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride:
Take all that money we spent on weapons and defense each year and instead
spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would
many times over, not one human being excluded, and WE CAN EXPLORE SPACE, TOGETHER, BOTH INNER AND OUTER, forever ... in peace.
