I’d say it’s been a while, but that’s just repeating some things. Driver? Stop Here, Please One of the perks of being an academic teacher who is licensed to drive a bus is that I’m occasionally asked to drive on field trips. Not all field trips are equal, and some are complete wastes of time, but this one was a good’ne. Our AP English teacher … Continue reading Looking Forward by Looking Behind
Lord, where have I been this past week? It’s almost been a week since I’ve posted anything. Defeats the purpose of having my own site (notice how I’m avoiding calling this a blog when that’s what it is…) if I don’t post anything. So, what’s been occupying my time? Class. I’m back at it, trying to finish my MA. I’ve taken a brief hiatus from … Continue reading Chapman: Party of a Million

Wonder what that says about me. When politics are at the doorstep, they usually travel with an entourage of agenda and spin. Well, I went into the … Continue reading Worthwhile Wednesday: Do You Hear What I Hear?
It’s amazing how long it takes to post a blog post comes when your actual job starts taking priority. Oh, how I miss those days of lethargic lounging during the winter holidays having time to write. Since I’ve found a minute or two, I guess I’ll try to write some thoughts down. Towards the end of 2015, Netflix jumped on the true crime bandwagon and produced an … Continue reading There’s Always More to a Story
I wrote this a little over year ago, and it was on one of my various blogs (which I have no clue how to get into it now). So, I thought I’d share it again. It still rings pretty true. ——————————————- My desk at school is a mystical place. More often then not it’s cluttered with various forms that need to be filled out, receipts … Continue reading My Desk, the Island
