Ah, nothing to say that is meant for students, although I hope some stop by to read what their ‘old’ teacher is thinking about. I just got back from a trip to Columbus Ohio with my daughter, who’ll be going to grad school there starting in July. This is her first apartment, so it’s been fun watching her decide on things like dishes, a couch (or a loveseat? or a couch? it’s on sale! Is it big enough? Let’s go home and measure and then look around before we decide). And my son is now assigned to Camp Lejeune (he’s a Marine linguist) for now, until he’s set for deployment somewhere. He also announced he asked his girlfriend to marry him!! THAT’s very exciting!! He had such a rough time in middle school and early high school – he was one of those kids who was constantly picked on and labeled a nerdy little kid with glasses (short, wore glasses since 14 months old, taught himself to read in preschool) – that it hurt to see him so unhappy. But let that be a lesson to all of you middle schoolers who think this is the suckiest time of your life. Yes, it is. But it does, and it WILL, get better.
My big summer project is helping my husband rebuild our deck. We both love to work with our hands, and we save a lot of money that way. Have you ever made or built something that you could have bought, but that you decided to try making yourself? How’d it come out?
