Today started out horrible, with one graded quiz hanging mid-question and getting locked out of reattempting. Lecturer sprang a nasty surprise saying that for that module we have midterms in addition to content-heavy ones I already have. And then upon boarding the shuttle to class, the doors closed on me and smacked me hard on my sides so yippee got another bunch of bruises up my arms and shoulders when the last bout has barely healed. No one commented on my undercut imitation and my head instead got abused by lots of people thinking it's alright to pet my head when my hair was so meticulously braided up and I'm already a bad mood. I suppose I should be grateful for the attention I receive in school every day, my friends like to fuss over me cos they think I'm cute since I'm short and wear everything with pants, when every other girl wears something "more feminine". But I can't help feeling upset that people just can't see when I want to left alone and can they at least be sensitive to my feelings? While I'm their "moon child", it certainly does not give others the right to treat me like a little kid. While it's nice to be fussed over, it can get tiring. So please. Leave this little tired bean alone for a while. I should put that on a t shirt.

Can you remember what I mean by "ellipsis"? This is when words are deliberately omitted, left out of a sentence, though the meaning can still be understood. For example, you may say "He's leaving, but I'm not", instead of repeating the verb and saying "He's leaving but I'm not leaving".
Ellipsis is used a lot in speech, and you can hear Sherlock using it again and again when he speaks; first, because it is very natural to do so and secondly because he just cannot be bothered to repeat things, he is so impatient sometimes!😆
What do you think? Which words is he omitting ✂ in his sentence today? Easy! Have a look in the comments tomorrow for the answer.🤓
J. R. R. Tolkein's 'The Hobbit' was published by George Allen and Unwin in London on this day in 1937.
George Allen & Unwin Ltd. of London published the first edition of The Hobbit on 21 September 1937 with a print run of 1,500 copies, which sold out by December because of enthusiastic reviews.
This first printing was illustrated in black and white by Tolkien, who designed the dust jacket as well. Houtoun Mifflin of Boston and New York reset type for an American edition, to be released early in 1938, in which four of the illustrations would be colour plates. Allen & Unwin decided to incorporate the colour illustrations into their second printing, released at the end of 1937. Despite the book's popularity, paper rationing brought on by wartime conditions and not ending until 1949 meant that the Allen & Unwin edition of the book was often unavailable during this period.
Subsequent editions in English were published in 1951, 1966, 1978 and 1995. The novel has been reprinted frequently by many publishers.In addition, The Hobbit has been translated to over than 40 languages with more than one published version for some languages.
Hobbit is the best.
Dün tekrardan Sherlock'un 2. Sezon 3. Bölümünü izledim. The Reichenbach Fall. Çok güzel bölüm gerçekten. Hem komik, hem eğlenceli hem beklenmedik. Moriarty rolündeki Andrew Scott manyak derecesinde yetenekli bir oyuncu. Cumberbatch de çok hoş adam cidden. En azıdan Sherlock rolünde öyle :) Ardından 3. Sezonun ilk bölümü olan The Empty Hearse'i de yarısına kadar izledim. Sherlock'un fransız aksanıyla konuştuğu, Dr. Watson'ın Sherlock'u yumruklayıp durduğu ve en son türk kebapçısına gittikleri sahneler çok başarılı, çok komik :) 4. Sezonda bir kendinden geçse de bazen mantık sınırlarını zorlasa ve öff bu ne yaa dedirtse de yine yine de çok güzel yapım Sherlock. En iyi sherlock Holmes uyarlaması. İzlemeyenler mutlaka izlesin! #sherlock#benedictcumberbatch#martinfreeman#bbcone
