I immediately thought about my 20s: all the roadblocks and subsequent miracles that had to happen for me to have the privilege of sitting on that bike overlooking the New York City skyline that day. As I close this chapter and embark on my 30’s (which btw everyone says is 10x better than your 20s and so far I agree), it’s fitting for me to finally share about those roadblocks, and the pride I have for overcoming them.

Once you realize everything is temporary then it’s easier to let things go.

As I continue to learn more, I want to know more, too

I want to know what attitudes students have toward things like internet safety, privacy and social media use. All of those fall under digital citizenship. Do students know that their school internet accounts are monitored? That is a false safety net. They need to learn to be safe online prior to leaving school. The questions are, how do we teach that without alienating them and making them feel like we don’t trust them, and what would connect best with students? I’m thinking that I need to seek the sage advice of the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus, or consult my Magic 8 Ball, or, I suppose, I could continue to seek out trusted sources which can shed light on how best to teach digital citizenship, like […]

Therapy has a different purpose for different people, but for me it has been brilliant in helping me to develop trust in my own choices and have faith in my decisions

A few days ago I received my final classification for my Broadcast Journalism degree. After a lot of very hard work and discipline, I thankfully graduated with a 2:1. Not the highest grade, but much better than the 2:2 or 3rd I would have received if I hadn’t have pulled myself together at several stages during the last two years.
