I’m pretty sure most colleges wouldn’t allow you to do the wallpaper thing even though it is temporary. I used to be a resident advisor and we had to monitor what and how much was plastered all over our students walls. Only a certain percentage of the wall space could be covered. It was considered a fire hazard if you had all the walls plastered with stuff.

Hello, my group is just establishing our first website, searching and working out what is needed. This blog stuck out right away. I’m fired up about this, and adore the design of your site. Are you able to let me know what “theme” it is?

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.

Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.

Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.

Let me not be understood as saying that there are no bad laws, nor that grievances may not arise for the redress of which no legal provisions have been made. I mean to say no such thing. But I do mean to say that although bad laws, if they exist, should be repealed as soon as possible, still, while they continue in force, for the sake of example they should be religiously observed.
