I learned some things today:
I learned that oat milk comes in a flavor called oatmeal cookie, and you can froth it before you put it in coffee. Fun.
I learned that it’s hard to look up and around on a walk with a puppy. You mostly have to look out…as in “Look out for the puppy who just veered in front of you!”
I learned that I could never have a desk job that required me to be at a computer all day.
I learned that even if I might say that I’m an introvert, what I really love about my job is seeing and reading students’ faces and having conversations that involve give and take.
I learned that Distance Learning is giving my Inbox a bloated feeling, just like in those commercials.
I learned that as much as I like to write, it’s a whole lot easier when you can talk to kids instead of writing everything.
I learned that I am seeing some of my students in a different light in this virtual classroom. (a future slice)
I learned that even in my basement, with only my computer, I can think this strange contradictory thought, “What I really need now is some alone time.”
I learned that sometimes I just have to write a short slice to get away from said computer. No offense.
