500 Words Per Day: Thinking about Life in General

I've been having a lot of thoughts lately about a great many things. Some things too lofty for me to think of (like God's great grace) and other things maybe a bit too mundane (like the bother of having my oil changed in my car.) It's all rather fascinating the amount of energy that goes… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Thinking about Life in General

500 Words Per Day: No Math, No Calculations, No Counting

There I was: at work, not so much enjoying my day. The day didn't start off too well. It didn't continue too well either. There is so much to do and so many distractions. People coming in and taking students off for therapy, phones ringing, school psychologist stopping in and handing me a stack of… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: No Math, No Calculations, No Counting

500 Words Per Day: Outside on the Earth

It certainly doesn't look like much: the earth coming off a long winter bender, hungover, strungout. Yet I felt compelled to spend some serious time out in it today and enjoy the warmth of the sort-of Spring sun caressing my wintered skin. I watched as this creek (pronounced: 'crick') strolled on by at a leisurely… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Outside on the Earth

500 Words Per Day: Television

So many things have changed in the few years I have been privileged to walk this earth. I just heard a guy on television ask, 'Guys, what is the number one problem in the world today?' Since the commercial was advertising KFC, I'm not sure the answer was any more meaningful than the question. One… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Television

500 Words Per Day: Subtlety

I don't hear much about subtlety any more. I'm not sure why. People seem to think that the best way to go about things in this day and age is to be straightforward, open, and honest. I guess what is important is that people clearly understand what we are trying to say when we are… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Subtlety

500 Words Per Day: Long Days at School

Today was a long day at school, hence the title of this post. It was a long day of teaching that began as most of my days do: waking up from a night of restlessness and nightmares. The day ended with me sitting here at my laptop writing about what a long day it was… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Long Days at School

500 Words Per Day: Bus Duty

It probably sounds somehow wrong, but I am one of those sort of teachers who actually enjoys bus duty at school. I love it so much that I do it twice per day: once in the morning when all the little children are arriving at school full of joy and happiness and songs (0nly to… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Bus Duty

500 Words Per Day: Testing Anxiety

I read an article today that had something to do with Jerry Seinfeld. I'm a huge fan of Seinfeld to the extent that I still laugh out-loud when watching the reruns in syndication. The article had something to do with something called the 'Seinfeld Strategy.' I haven't the slightest idea if there is any truth… Continue reading 500 Words Per Day: Testing Anxiety
