I’ll be there in just over a week.
Tell me what to do!
Tell me what to see!
We are open to both touristy things, and not-so-touristy things.
Anyone know anything about Gluten Free dining in NYC/have more insights to share with me on the subject than my google searches?
Where do YOU live?

presenter Ernie Mendes,an education guy, suggested these 3 questions to ask students to open the day. I used it today for a journal prompt, and really loved the way the kids responded. So you are my next guinea pigs…please answer…
1. What are you thankful for?
2. What did you learn yesterday?
3. What do you promise for today?
Do you ever go back to a regular computer screen after having used your phone for internet, and get surprised at how big everything looks in the size it was intended to be?
I just got internet at home (haven’t had it in 9 months) and so I haven’t seen 43t on a normal sized screen in that long! Everything looks huge and wonderfully read-able!
1. Are you in a “permanent” career (something you plan on doing til retirement)?
2. If so, what is it? Do you like it? How did you get there?
If not, are you working towards establishing one?
3. Have you ever thought about a complete career change? What would you do? Why don’t you?
4. If you live in a country where there is not universal healthcare, does your job provide health benefits? If not, what do you do about healthcare?
5. I you have changed careers, are you glad you did so? Was it hard?
Bonus: Am I totally insane for wanting to run away from the education field, knowing that I have $50,000 debt from my MA, and trying to fend for myself by working a few different part-time ventures? I’m feeling discouraged and unhappy in my chosen field, but I’d be throwing a lot away to give up now.
What was your last “sigh of relief”?
Last week, C. finally decided to move in! AND I paid off my car. So, now the money I’m saving on rent and the car payment will more than cover my student loans, and I can breathe a little!
Not sure if I mentioned it a few months ago…I got a new job piloting an After School Program at my local Jr. High. I’ve built this program from the ground up…and it’s been rough (I am not getting the support I need).
We start tomorrow.
I had a teacher lined up to teach a computer class using a basic programming/game design program, and the kids were super excited.
He flaked on me yesterday…and I’m going to have to throw in an unprepared teacher to fill in until I figure out what to do.
What are some cool (and appropriate) activities for 7th and 8th graders to do on the computer, while waiting for a replacement teacher?
I’m going to give them an “internet scavenger hunt” where they have to visit different sites and try things out (looking up a definition, trying a game for 5 min and recording their high score, looking for the best price for something, finding a recipe for a favorite food, etc.) Do you have any ideas for me to add to this list? (things that wont be blocked by my school’s internet settings).
Thanks a billion. I’d also love to know how y’all are doing, and if I’ve missed anything in the past month. :)
about the most exciting thing that’s happened with you lately.
...and a step to the right!
What is your favorite dance/dance style?
(i’m talking anything from ballet to the hokey pokey, and it doesn’t have to be something that you can personally do, maybe just something you like to watch)
do you believe in coincidence?
the last time the San Francisco Giants were at the World Series (in 1989), game 3 was postponed 30 minutes before it began, because of the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Now, they’re at the WS again, and we’ve been having what we’d consider “earthquake weather” all week. coincidence?
