Food-for-thought, and technology advances for me

Hello bloggers!

It has been a while, I know. As I sit here this fine morning, just drinking my cup-o-java and reflecting on what I have been doing, what you would find interesting, and in general, what to blog about this time...I have noticed that the truth is that I have learned little lately. Yep, I admitted it! My brain has not crammed as much in as I would like as of late, but I know also that life has been pretty hectic for me. Let me explain...

I have gotten married. I took the plunge! I am happy and things are going great. I drive about a half hour to work every day, with my husband, who works in the same town as me, and I tell ya - if driving together did not break us apart, then nothing will (it is like that old saying that if you can build a house or renovate together then you can make it through anything?) - same goes for driving together in the morning and after work. What's worse than waking up and realizing you both need the shower, need breakfast, need coffee and one is always running later than the other - sometimes that switches - but then you get into the vehicle, and realize you have forgotten something of importance, turning around you realize that this is not all that much of a relaxing good time to spend with your significant other! But to tell you the truth, I am really enjoying it and life is awesome!

I just thought I would throw in that food-for-thought today! :-)

Back to technology...sorry my tangent was a little lengthy!

My CPT 10 class just finished their first video project - a commercial! They were advertising for a pair of runners. It is pretty funny, and I will post it once it is all ready.

My CPT 20 class is taking a detour from their Game Show Skits and actually doing a "Save Our School" video. Our school is under review for closure, and the students at my school want to voice their opinions. What better way than to express them through an informational video! We will be presenting it to the committee at the meeting after the new year. The kids are taking it quite seriously, and it is hard to keep emotion out of the mix when they are dealing with so many different personalities. That is part of the learning process, but I think we are finding it (at least I see it) as more of a challenge on this project than with others. I will let you know how it all progresses. We have just been interviewing students, now we need to interview selected community members on their thoughts.

The issue with the CPT 10 common drive access has yet to be fixed....ugh....

Other than that? Life is good.
