I wrote a script for class that was about seventies rockers doing things and George Harrison is in it

What kind of awesomely weird classes do you have?

Intro into theater. They let us make a ten minute play about anything and that is what I picked.

I guess when you pick what you want, you can do anything. George Harrison and Art Garfunkel.

I just love adding Beatles references into my essays, I can't help it.

This time I wrote a story about this girl in around 1960. I added some vague Beatles references, like The Cavern, The Quarrymen, etc. And my teacher actually got them! He put a smiley next to them which made me really happy.

I once did a story about a typical day in my childhood. It began with my "brother" who didn't exist. He was being annoying in the story, waking me up when I was sleeping, and I yelled, "Go away! Leave me alone! Don't bother me!" Nobody saw the "Don't Bother Me" reference. It sounded perfectly normal.

I wrote an essay last month about the hero's journey for English class. I used quotes from Within you, Without You and The Inner Light in my conclusion and turned my essay into a very profound examination of the human condition.

A sentence in my essay about the Peter Pan Generation (30+ people without children, commitments etc.) :

"Life has changed in so many ways". I nearly wrote "oh", and it still doesn't sound right to me without it.

So, I'm in the Peter Pan Generation as far as the "no children" thing goes. Never heard of it before.

So how does the 'Peter Pan Generation' fit in with the Peter Pan in 'Hook' who grew up past 30 years old, got married, had kids and become a very successful businessman to the detriment of his family?

So, last school year, we had to write a nonfiction essay. I wrote mine on how The Beatles transitioned from their early Beatlemania phase to Revolver and onward. I got the highest grade possible for it.

This isn't technically an essay, but as some of you know, I use Beatles references in some of my work communications.

ONE

Sometimes I wish I knew you well,
Then I could **speak** my mind and tell you Maybe you'd understand. ~George Harrison

Speaker forms are due on December Two. (url)

--------------------------

TWO

I'm painting my **room** in a colorful way And when my mind is wandering There I will go. ~Lennon-McCartney

She showed me her **room**, isn’t it good, Norwegian Wood? ~Lennon-McCartney

Room set up forms are also due on December Two. (url)

--------------------------

THREE

She’s going to **change** her mind. ~Lennon-McCartney
Now today I find you have **changed** your mind. ~Lennon-McCartney
We all want to **change** the world. ~Lennon-McCartney

Well, yes, we do want to change the world in many ways, but for the here-and-now, if you need to give us new or changed information about any of your programs (titles, descriptions, objectives, etc.), please email (person) with the changes.
