      We're almost there. It's almost time for #sliceofheaven, AP kids.... get ready.

      On a more serious note, New York, and other states, counties and districts, are looking at the question, how do we evaluate teachers? How do we decide who is "good" at teaching and who is "bad?"

        It's finally over. The CAHSEE has come and gone for all of  you sophomores. Some of you may  have to take it again, but the first major "high-stakes" test of your high school career is over. Now, we just have to grind-out the rest of the year. We still have AP exams and Science Test,  but we're on our way towards the end of a long, change-filled year. On that note, let me introduce you to a guy named Michale "The Grinder" Mizrachi.
        He's known for being determined and aggressive in pursuit of what he wants, at the poker table. Why do I think you should  know this? Well, determination is important, no matter if you are working towards an education, or taking money from people playing poker. Without a hefty dose of determination, you'll give up when things get tough instead of working through rough times, knowing that the end result will be worth it.

        What did Smokey the Bear teach you? "That only YOU can prevent forest fires." He's a fictional, cartoon bear. The Grinder is a real dude, maybe you should learn something from him,

        Peace,

          It's Friday the 13th. Super. 

          Here's my prediction. NOTHING bad will happen today because of the date. If bad stuff happens, it's because people do stupid things. However, the cause of the stupid things people do has less to do with the calendar date and more to do with the lack of actual thought people put into their actions. Some people have it in their heads that crazy things will happen today. So, as a result, they are going to look for those "crazy" things to happen. They may even alter their actions to make them happen (It's called a self-fulfilling prophecy). I'm not going to try to climb into your head and figure out why you think the way you do. My mind is a scary enough place, and I don't want to be anywhere inside or near anyone else's. So, let's all be rational today. Get out of your own head, keep calm, learn stuff, and don't subscribe to the notion that today has to be crazy just because of the date.

          With love,
          Markstone

            Dear time change,

            I love you, but sometimes, you love someone (or something) that isn't good for you. At the moment I can't handle you. I enjoy a lot of the time we spend together. The time after work. The walks after dinner, but sometimes I just can't keep up with all of the things I'm supposed to do AND spend all of the time with you that I want.

            Eventually you will change, and we'll start this all over again. I feel like you do this to me every year. It's simply not fair to play with me like this. I want to enjoy our time together, but right now I need some space and some time, alone.

            I still love you. I want you, but I'm just not ready for you yet.

            With love,
            Markstone

              Today is March 11, or, what is better to known to my friends as 311 Day... This is one of the most influential bands of my still young life. From Jr. High to present day, 311 is always good for a solo car ride sing along, a well-timed love song, or some motivation for cleaning the house. It's all good stuff. 
              The best thing about this video... the tambourine. You have to be pretty hard to play a tambourine in a rock band.
