ten things tuesday

 1) Today, my biggest accomplishment was not giving up on technology.  I know there's some setting that I've missed setting in my electronic grade book that's preventing grades from calculating but I'll be darned if I can figure it out.  At the end of the day, I heard through the grapevine that I'm not the only person with this conundrum.  

2) I don't know what I would do if I had to go a day without technology--I don't know how I could teach my hybrid students without being able to connect to them through technology.  And since I use an e-reader almost exclusively or listen to audiobooks, I would be at a loss.  😒

3) If I had to choose to give up one of my favorite things I would give up my Kindle (which I won last year) because I have more books on my Nook and I would still be able to listen to audiobooks on my phone or iPad.

4) I think I am a lucky person.  I have more good luck than bad.  I never really believed in luck until 2005 when I had pulmonary emboli and my doctor caught it from an offhand remark I made.  Lucky I survived!

5) My students are feeling more comfortable in class.  They are speaking up or asking questions or even correcting me when I make mistakes (which I sometimes do on purpose to show them that it's no big deal to make a mistake).  Today was a good day at school.  Aside from the technology conundrum that hovered in the background all. day. long.

6) I really feel comfortable in my outfit today.  

7)  I should have taken advantage of the "warm" weather today and gone snowshoeing after school.  Instead, I relaxed. Hey--I have a regret!

8) If I had to change careers, I would love to work at a library.  I would love to be a personal shopper.  I think I would be really good at human resources.

9) Tomorrow I have a consultation with the day surgery office for my upcoming colonoscopy.  The thing I like the best (I know, right?) is that the nurse practitioner that I'll be seeing for the consult is a friend of mine that I rarely see--we'll spend the majority of the time gabbing.

10) I'd like to get a pizza this week, it's been a while since I've had it.

I loved everything about #5.

Please don't worry about the colonoscopy. It's a cliche, but the worst part is the prep.
