Often, and I am guilty of doing this as well, we educators and parents tell our students and children, “Wait until you get out in the real world.” As with many things, out of the blue, when I heard someone say this today about students, it rubbed me the wrong way. It was said in… Continue reading …in the “Real World”
Photosource: https://thevillagereporter.com/minneapolis-police-station-torched-amid-george-floyd-protest/ Reading through all of the protest and riot news today, two things are stuck in my mind. One is how it appears those who want to start race wars and create anarchy are highjacking peaceful protests. The other is what one person said, “The fires are necessary.” This has left me confused and… Continue reading “The Fires are Necessary”
I sure wish I was good at the new coding. There is a need for an app right now that would earn someone a bazillion bucks if they got it right and got it out fast. As the country begins to open up, people are by nature, going to want to go to a movie,… Continue reading Want to Earn a Bazillion Bucks?
As educators, we talk a lot about grit and perseverance in the face of adversity. We want our students to keep going even when the learning is challenging. As parents, we want our own children to also have grit and perseverance as they tackle life. We’ve always been honest with our children that life can… Continue reading A Way to Test Your Grit
Tomorrow I make first trek away from home base in over two months. I’m both wildly excited to see some new scenery and stimulation, and wildly anxious about being out of my safe zone for the day. Where am I going you might ask? I’m taking a road trip to Ohio to bring some things… Continue reading Off to the Wild Unknown
The hubby and I were talking a little earlier today about how fortunate we are right now in terms of our employment. We both have jobs in which we have been able to work from home. I’m still getting full pay, he is at 80%. During the Indiana hunkering down, we’ve been able to help… Continue reading Pay It Forward, and Backward
While perusing Facebook earlier today, I saw a post by a Mr. Smith about liberals and the man (the man) in the Oval Office. It appears Trumpists, and supporters of Trumpists, are wanting to have the post go viral by saying the post was going viral. I don’t know if it is or not, but… Continue reading Things that Make One Go, “Hmmmm!”
This morning I woke up believing it to be Wednesday. Then I looked at my watch to see it was Tuesday. By the time I got to work, it was Wednesday again. Every Wednesday I have to adjust my work schedule due to a meeting from 3:00-4:00 to talk Title IIA, so I made the… Continue reading What Day is it Again?
Bad hair day number 14! There are many things I miss, mainly people, which I’ve written about in other posts. I’ve also written about some of the positive experiences of hunkering down. But…my hair is horrible and not a positive. When it is long, it isn’t too bad. When it is short, it is where… Continue reading Hunker Down Hair
Hunkering down has been a challenge I imagine for all of us. There have also been some really good things about being hunkered down, which I believe I’ve mentioned before. I have really enjoyed working from home because it means I get to have lunch everyday with my husband, whom has also been working from… Continue reading Choose Wisely Men and Women
