Almost forgot to post

It has been another long day. I don't care much for Mondays. I did feel a little more rested being able to leave when the sun is actually coming up. School was o.k. My comm. app. kids started 24 hours of silence at the end of class so when they come to class tomorrow, they have to remain quiet. The goal is for them to not talk or make any vocal sounds for 24 hours straight and to communicate completely nonverbally. I know that some cheat, but some make an honest effort often to simply prove it to themselves.

I stayed after school until 5:30 as I had students stay to work. I spent most of the time printing out evidence for my first CX debate team. I got home at 6:00 and had to quickly make supper so I could go to a band booster meeting. I was able to get reimbursed for the expense of the website and they've agreed to pay for it for a year in advance. It's not much each month, but every little bit helps.

I came home after the meeting and watched the end of Chuck, and then I watched Heroes. I'm starting get into it, but it's still confusing... but I think that's their intent. I changed into my p.j.'s and spent some time converting a video for the band website. It's still a large file and I'm not sure that I want to put it on the site in that size right now. I haven't been able to update the speech website in a while. Maybe over Thanksgiving break if we get one. It will depend on playoff games.

Well, I'm going to get this posted and head to bed shortly. I had trouble falling asleep last night and I'm sure it was because I had a coke kind of late. I was just craving one completely. I avoided it tonight so I hope I can fall asleep faster.

I tried to watch Heroes when I was in the hospital last winter. It was just too confusing. I keep hearing about Chuck and need to check it out.

So my parents would have completely freaked out if we had the 24 hours of silence assignment when I was in high school. They were totally of the belief that school should stay at school and not effect any other part of my life in any way. My dad used to get very upset and say "YOU'RE SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME AT SCHOOL!!" Because I always had theatre or speech or tennis...yeah, damn those extracurricular activities, I should have been out getting drunk and smoking pot with all the other kids my age. *smirk*

I think that assignment would be kind of tough for some people. But, it's still a good one though. Wouldn't that be great if you could use it in the workplace too? Heehee :)
