lego scholi res liberum

You know how when giving compliments, some people are described as being "true to themselves" or letting their "true personality" shine? What the heck does that mean? It sounds like a euphemism for someone who does socially shady things. But not caring what others think and being yourself aren't the same. Just so you know.

Guess what: I checked out this book called Implementing Evidence-Based Academic Interventions in School Settings. I'm excited, because I looked for a good book on Amazon about research on school psychology, and a lot of it was stupid pop-psych stuff... but this looks legit.

haha. Maybe it's a euphemism for "that's not something I would do but I want to compliment you somehow." yeah, that's not the best compliment is it...

We tend to despise hypocrisy, but sometimes it's better to at least have an idea of what's good, even if you can't follow it, than to just do whatever you want and fail to aspire to anything else.
