Quote of the Week
“What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”
I like this poem because it’s totally true. Like all of the poems I choose they are true. Success is having a passion for what you are doing and in teaching that flair is needed very much.
Over the past years I have put each graduating class in categories. There are the ones who want to succeed, the ones who don’t really care, and the ones who lack the discipline needed to succeed. My class is in the category of wanting success. I have never seen such gifted people in one graduating class as mine and I am not just saying that because it’s my graduating class. My sister’s graduating class is under the radar. I haven’t seen anyone trying hard enough to succeed and I hope they prove me wrong by the time I graduate.
College Tuition Costs Climbing Again This Fall
By The Associated Press
This article is saying exactly what the title is saying. College is getting harder to get into because of cost. I hope I have enough to get into college or it is going to be online college for me.
A Light in the Attic by Shell Silberstein. Shell Silverstein never ceases to amaze me. Sterling picked a good choice.
Picky Mrs. Pickle by Kristine Schneider. That book was good. I really liked it and it made me think of my sisters because they are picky as well as my niece.
My Dog, My Hero by Betsy Byars. I love all books with animals. Lauren kind of ruined the mood with the fact that the stories were all fake.
The exercises about disabilities were fun and eye opening. The station I was at first was so hard. I could not pick anything up with taped fingers in gloves. I hope I never have to experience that again.
Having a disability must suck for people who have just become disabled. I hope I never become disabled in my life and I am lucky to have not broken any bones yet. I already know how ADD and ADHD feel so that was nothing new but the other stuff was super hard.
