On the Lighter Side...

Check out this article in the New York Times! Can you relate? I can – screensucking and frazzing my way through the day! Though I’m not guilty of being a cellopain, I have suffered from logonorrhea! :-)

  • Marie,

    Thanks for the article! I needed a good laugh while in the middle of all my work...:)

    I, too, especially identified with Logonorrhea. We have several different usernames and passwords just at school--It drives me nuts, and I find myself hitting "Forgot password?" a lot! I thought I was smart about ten years ago when I started setting up several accounts, and I kept it simple. Then, companies, organizations, etc. started altering their requirements. Some wanted four digits, some six, now some want eight. The big thing now as well is to ask for a password that includes a letter and number... I find myself keying multiple words in until I find the right one. My most recent issue--ISIS. I had never before capitalized a password...

    At the risk of turning this article into somewhat of a Reverberon, I'm going to send it to some friends for a laugh. Thanks!

  • Oh how true!! Just imagine 10 years from now. Webster will have to print a whole new dictionary (or will it all be online by then?).

  • Marie,

    I just wanted to say that I ALWAYS learn something from you, whether it's your posts on your blog, your instructional unit or other work, or your posts on the class message boards.

    You have shared technical things, instructional things, organizational things, and a bunch of other "things" that have been very helpful.

    Your writing is always clear, concise, and purpose driven.

    Thank you for all the help you've given me. You are truly an educator, wherever you go, whatever you do. It's what you do.

    Sincerely,

    Greg

    PS- I am stingy with compliments, so please know that you deserve these comments.

  • Greg,
    Your positive comments are much appreciated - I find this blogging format pushes me to dig deep and I value the conversations and learning that occur as a result! I also look forward to your recipes!

  • Marie,

    Thank you for both your humor and inspiration during this class. You have been a valuable resource as I endeavor to understand how to teach all of my students.

    I hope that I have the opportunity to learn from you again.
