Hello everybody and happy Earth day to you!
I want everyone to spend some time today outside looking around and seeing all the beauty and resources that we normally just take for granted.
Just finished my 3rd physics exam so my brain’s still sizzlin
The ride home helped me relax a bit, and I am enjoying the cool breeze while it lasts today. I am still working on my social media paper (Social Media in the Workplace) and hope to finish it this weekend.

Here is a killer chihuahua video:
Trying some new stuff because just words on a blog can be unattractive and not very fun. I decided I will for now on try to incorporate snapshots and videos, or a graphic to make my blogs desirable to read.
I am also wanting to create a website using this platform (should be fun).
I made the Einstein image in Adobe Illustrator my freshman year in college and was new to the adobe suites, however, this image still isn’t all that bad i think.

There is only 5 weeks of class left…Gulp
Trying to get my old mind to stay calm and get organized is a challenge sometimes :p
I’m halfway through getting my paper done for my social media class (due in 4 days).
I have still 2 tests left to take in my physics class which is nerve-wrecking. I spend
ample time and effort in this physics class, yet my heads barely above water (hope I don’t drown).
My brain is wired for creativity and art/music. These things I do easily; math and logistics…..
Open house was this weekend and I worked it for my physics teacher. Had a blast! (literally)
We had a booth setup to launch water bottles way up in the air like rockets using just compressed air.
I love interacting with the children and helping them have fun. soon my youngest daughter will be an adult and leaving the nest. I will no longer have a teaching/guiding purpose at home. I am so used to it that I may change my degree to one of teaching. I have always been good at working with kids (and young adults) Who knows….I’ll take it 1 step at a time.

Today in my social media class we got to Skype with a class that is from Connecticut. They are seventh graders, and I’m not sure what particular class their in.
We played a game where each classroom gets 1 question to guess where the other classrooms town or city is located. These questions are of the yes or no type.
Me and a boy from the other classroom played rock, paper, scissors to see who would go 1st. He won, so he chose 1st. Their initial questions were funny because they asked if we were in the west, then they asked if we were in the east, then south and north. We answered with no for everyone of those questions which confused them for a bit. I guess technically we are from the west (Midwest).
Eventually they guessed Salina and won. beaten by a bunch of 7th graders…Grrrrr
Actually I’m happy they won. They were a nice bunch of kids who were having a lot of fun. I want to do that again (Skype). I want a rematch against those kids who whipped us.
That experience reaffirmed my desire to become a teacher. I love kids and want to educate them in a fun and new way.
