Aim Low

I had this conversation with my coworker, John, this morning:

[Walks by John's office]

Me: "JOHN!!"
John: "Morning."
Me: "OH, today deserves something MUCH BETTER than just "morning." It deserves ... "OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY!"
John: "Why, did you find another job?"
Me: "No! I've just made the conscious decision that today is going to be a great day. It's going to start out here [raises arm and holds palm horizontally to indicate elevation] and then it will have ... it can only go ... [looks downward] ... wait."
John: "It can only go downhill."
Me: "Dammit."
John: "You need to start closer to the bottom ... "
Me: " ... so there isn't much further to fall."
John: "Right."
Me: "Alright, then ... I think today is already a crappy day, and therefore it can't get much worse. Thanks." [walks off]
John: "Sorry to ruin your day for you!"

Sometimes, days start off great and just get better!!! Here's to hoping that your day stayed great. Remember, we can't always control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it. Keep your good attitude.

As professionals we have to get over our resistance to being observed and evaluated. My actual teaching and the resulting student assessments of their learning are the means by which I want to be judged.

I feel like a complete blank. Eh. I haven't gotten anything done these days. More or less nothing seems worth bothering with. Not much on my mind lately. Shrug.
