I’ve been very addicted to Twitter lately — it’s almost all I do except read very important books!! ;) The other day, I creeped into a conversation where some important people wanted to re-commit to personal goals. There’s a hashtag, round of blog posts, and a picture to make this all “official”! Here is one blog I read that explains #Nerdlution better than I ever could: Sharpread
I’m making a commitment that for the next 50 days, I’ll do a few things I’ve been neglecting. Here’s the short list:
1…blog each day. It can be here or maybe in my daybook, but writing is a must!
2… SOME sort of exercise. The best way to do this is to follow that blasted Fast Metabolism book!! Just do it, please!
3…have Game Night with Lily once a week. Wednesdays sound good (and with Jake when he’s home).
That’s probably all the resolutions I need to make. Hell, I’m already behind on the first day’s…it’s after midnight. Maybe Dec 1 will be the start date…now if I can just do the math to see when the 50 days are up! haha…
Good news is I’ve read 2 1/2 books this week: One Night That Changed Everything; a skeery book from the WL library (that I can’t remember the name of, nor can I find it!); and half finished with The Sea of Tranquility, a creepy book that Donna told me to read.
I also started another website to house my teaching “stuff” — I’m being horrible by keeping resources in a million other places, so today, I tried to put websites and ideas and documents in one spot. We’ll see how long that lasts! For now, though, I have 4 pages…but the Home page is my favorite. I’m really struggling with staying with teaching, so I added a cute WeeMe avatar (where I’m holding my old Blackberryand a Starbucks coffee),3 videos that inspire me, a poem, a quote by Ghandi (for when I’ve feeling really bad) and, a Spotify
playlist of 13 songs that should definitely inspire me (or, at least, define how I feel about teaching — when I love it, not now when I’m pissed).
I know…cute, huh??
That about does it for today’s episode!
