Working through the Tribes module in the “5 Habits of Highly Creative Teachers” MOOC, had to create a couple lists, here they are:

3 Lists

Things I would tell my 16 year old self

  1. Get a job
  2. Don’t measure the skills you pursue in terms of perceived future financial gains
  3. Journal
  4. Stop and look around.  Don’t get too caught up on what will be happening next.
  5. Do something that scares you as often as you can
  6. Don’t worry about what other people think.  Be true to yourself.

Last Week’s Grocery List – probably forgot a few things, these were the main items

  • kale
  • honey nut cheerios
  • apples
  • cherries
  • bananas
  • granola bars
  • salted chocolate
  • tomatoes
  • celery
  • rice
  • yogurt
  • cheddar cheese
  • milk
  • hot dogs
  • hot dog buns
  • rice cakes
  • peanut butter
  • ham and smoked turkey for sandwiches
  • chocolate chips

If I didn’t have to go to work – well, I am actually on strike right now, I work in the Victoria school district, British Columbia, Canada, and we have been on strike for the past 2 weeks, fighting for smaller class sizes and more support for our students.  I have had a bit more extra time because of this.

  • sign up for a course (another MOOC perhaps)
  • hike
  • spend time tending to the garden
  • play guitar
  • read comic books (and book books)
  • build something out of wood.
