As a child in the ‘80s, I remember the above lyrics as background music to life in the town house I lived in for four years. Mom liked the light stuff; Dad would have had something a little more Rock-n-Roll on the dinosaur sized stereo/record player. I don’t remember who sang it, and I could look it up in a blink thanks to modern technology, but sometimes I like things to remain nostalgic. (Bonus points, however, to anyone else who remembers hearing it on the radio.) Needless to say, when I thought of a posting directed at an audience of those I may or may not have met, these lyrics sprang to mind and became the title for my inquiry.
As today would have it, extenuating circumstances have kept me away from work… think of it as teacher hookie. I have an amazing idea in mind for my next post, but no time to write it as today (since I’m here anyhow) MUST be dedicated to grading. (See above real life picture of what plagues me.) After all, the seniors do need to know if they will graduate in two weeks or not.
In true teacher style, I have set a timer for myself… I must work for X-amount of time before I can get back to writing. So here’s your assignment:
While I write this blog for myself (therapy) and my children (They may read it in the future… who knows?), I do really enjoy interacting with an audience. Most of you are family and friends, and I do hope that you are enjoying a glimpse into my erratic brain! Some of you, I am pleased to say, are people I have never met. The fact that you are willing to read this must mean that I’m doing something well. Hello to all!
Now the homework I have so many ideas, and I need to know where to start. (A blog I read yesterday aslo encouraged asking readers what they would like to see.) Tell me what I should write about next. Between my kids, my job, and strange memories from the past, hopefully there is something you would like to see me pontificate about. If you don’t have a request, please do me the favor of “liking” anything you enjoy and providing tons of feedback. Follow me if you would like. I, like my students, thrive on positive reinforcement! I also, someday, would like to turn blogging in to something bigger, so your constructive criticism is appreciated as well. Feel free to leave all comments in the comment box. Help me to be a better writer, and in return, I will try to give you all the worthless knowledge and humor I have to offer.
Thanks for the help… I will see you again soon. You may now return to your regularly scheduled lives.
