Procrastination Station #94

Cheer and Heartsong

Hello! Yes, I’m still alive. ONS has been pretty quiet lately — I was away for most of the summer months on an epic West Pacific Coast roadtrip through three US States and a Canadian province, all via the delightful Greyhound bus network. And before I even realised was I back on home turf, I was straight back to work, getting to grips with a whole new academic year’s worth of bright and enquiring young minds (ahem). Things are still pretty mental, so posts may continue to appear only sporadically. But stick around, if you would be so good. Here are some cool things to brighten your Friday!

George Watsky’s music is one of my favourite things in the world.


And speaking of Watsky… he plays Shakespeare in this epic literary rap battle!

Have a great weekend, all!
