From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Anne is sick of everyone fighting about politics. She thinks it’s a stupid thing to do because it just makes the dynamics in the Secret Annex even worse.
The adults are constantly listening to news broadcasts throughout the day, which Anne thinks is excessive.
