Aligning Text: A New Stylistic Tool To Enhance Your Writing

swing

 

Yeah, I’m a mega-nerd, as mega-nerdy as they come.

Pillow talk

Schooling is not the same as education
education - it is sacred.
Here it is commodified - twisted, manipulated, thrown away

What used to be a vague, alien concept

is now a treat that I look forward to

even in the dead of winter,

in horribly cold 40-degree weather.
