Friday Thoughts: 23 Years

23 years. It's a long time to be in one place. Yet, that's what I'm walking away from, probably today. 23 years in our school district. #damnyouareold Hush. I couldn't write about this Tuesday. I was tied up in knots,... Continue Reading →

Day 6 – Change – #SOLC23

I've figured that if I play my cards right, I could retire in 5 years. #excusemewhat I know. It wasn't that long ago that it was many, many years until that event happened. Change is in the air for sure.... Continue Reading →

“What would I do if I wasn’t afraid?” #SOL21

Change Your Lens #SOL20

"Change your lens." It seems pretty easy, doesn't it? If you don't like the focus, change the lens. Change the view. Change your perspective. #yeahright We watched this TedTalk titled, "Celebrate What is Right with the World", by Dewitt Jones.... Continue Reading →
