Anonymous asked: How are you going, Andrew? I'm a daily viewer but haven't been able to check on the page recently, so how have you been handling things? In terms of critiquing/general livelihood/sanity.

Hello, anonymous! Thanks for asking—it’s nice to know you care.

I’m in college now. It’s been pretty stressful thus far, and I twisted my ankle going down the library stairs the night before last, but I’m making some good friends and learning about some cool fields of study. I sorta kinda have a job, but it’s two hours a week and doesn’t pay much. (My previous employers still haven’t gotten back to me about whether they want to keep me on in the future.)

Everyone in English wants me to edit their papers, so I guess running this blog paid off in the long run.

I’m struggling to maintain 50SoW’s queue, but it hasn’t run out once yet. I’m going to try to build up a bigger buffer soon, just in case.

This ask is killin’ me, anon. I have no idea what you’re saying, but I love it.

mildlypsychotic asked: For the "pulls the door to" thing: I've actually heard that used a lot (I live in the Midwest, not sure if that would be part of it). Basically, it's shortening "pulls the door to [a certain degree of closing], but doesn't fully close it." We just tend to drop the place to which it is pulled since it is usually implied that the door is nearly closed (vs halfway or only slightly).

Thanks! I’m from the East coast. It must be a regional thing.

sansael asked: Hey)) In this last issue of criticism, in the phrase ''and pulls the door to but doesn't close it'' I think there's something wrong with the 'to'. Doesn't it usually stand before verbs? Or maybe it's a part of a phraseologism? English isn't my first language, so please, explain this to me)))

I don’t fully understand it myself either, sansael. E.L. is using ‘to’ in a way that English-speaking Americans don’t usually use it.
