Gender, Race, and Colour

April 12, 2007

Class sizes and demographics change every year. Schools try to keep the number of boys and girls in classes relatively the same. Last year I had 11 boys and 13 girls in my class. 5 of those students were black, 2 were white, and the rest were East [Keep Reading]

To Journal or not to Journal?

April 11, 2007

I have written a journal now for several years and I find it hard to continue to write it. I used to write in it a lot. I used to pour out my deepest feelings into it and was brutally honest about a lot of things. Maybe I was too honest. I had a [Keep Reading]

Depth Perception

April 10, 2007

One thing I can’t figure out is our stereoscopic vision. I have read a bit about this subject and understand that our two eyes combine their separate images into one three-dimensional picture. This makes sense to me. What I don’t understand is [Keep Reading]

Energy Depletion

April 5, 2007

I could feel myself starting to get sick earlier in the week. I tried to slow things down a bit and take care of myself but it didn’t seem to help. I’m sick. I took a day off of work on Tuesday just to recover from not feeling well. I spent the [Keep Reading]

Cultural Influence

April 2, 2007

It feels like I have always written. I can’t remember when I started but I can remember when I started to take it seriously. I used to write poems. I had written quite a few before I discovered rap music. That is when everything changed. I learned [Keep Reading]

Male Teacher

March 30, 2007

I teach children. Not a lot of males do this for some reason. I see most male teachers gravitate toward middle school or high school. I teach Grade 4. I enjoy it a lot. I remember that my first male teacher was in Grade 4 and I responded really well [Keep Reading]

Meant to Be

March 29, 2007

Where I am right now and how I got here just feels right. It’s a feeling that I am in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. It’s hard to explain. And it would take pages and pages to explain exactly how I got here. It’s a [Keep Reading]

Unresponsive

March 28, 2007

I got a new watch last month. It’s a digital wonder this watch. It holds time information for three different time zones. It has three alarms, a stopwatch, a countdown timer and an occasion reminder. I use some of these features everyday. I wake [Keep Reading]

Five Year Mission

March 27, 2007

Today I embark on my five-year mission. I think that it is important to set goals and work to achieve them. I have been writing for years but have just recently decided to get serious about it. I launched a website and purchased my name as a dot com [Keep Reading]
