"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green



Tomorrow I'll be flying to Chicago to attend the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) conference and the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents (ALAN), which I am SUPER excited about!!!!!!

Last year, NCTE was held in Orlando, FL so it was really easy for me to go.  I stayed at a cheap hotel by Disney and drove to the convention center every morning.  This time I have to fly, and still stay at a cheap hotel and still drive to the convention, but it will be IN POSSIBLE RAIN AND VERY COLD WEATHER!  And yes, I'm sure some of you are like "Pshhh, Chicago isn't cold right now", but let me tell you that the WARMEST it will be all week is on Saturday at 57°.  I'm going to be freezing my figurative balls off.  This Florida girl is seriously unprepared for the cold, what with all the flip flops I own.

Anyway, the reason I'm bringing this up is that I possibly won't be around much, and I figured I'd give a heads up rather than just disappearing like I did a couple weeks ago.  Though hopefully, as I'll have internet at my hotel, I will be able to blog about the conference, perhaps even vlog a little.  We'll see what happens.  Either way I'll be writing up a full report when I get back!

I hope you guys end up doing something really fun this weekend as well!
