Wandering // Naruto

Recs, giving and receiving

1. Today is my grandma's birthday, lulzily enough. Also Watanuki's, the Sakuras', and C!Syaoran's.

2. Probably old meme, but a book rec: Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen. It basically talks about a lot of the lies and inaccuracies perpetuated by American History textbooks (maybe this is why American History was so boring?), and why they're wrong. Besides being interesting from a social and historical perspective, I think it's also a good writing resource because one of the major points it makes is that perfect, inhuman heroes are unrealistic and much harder to identify with than ordinary people.

ETA: 6. Also, also-! Nicole needs to take a fucking shower, srsly. And wash her clothes, and not sleep in her clothes. And I have no idea what's up with her or if she's just stressed out, but every time I've asked her if she's ok, she's blown me off, so I don't want to be rude and press it. But at the same time, I can't help but think that she's really not all right, since she was ditching again yesterday, and she's such a grades perfectionist that I've got to think that something's up. Argh. Now I feel annoyed all over again.
