Well, it's almost been a week and I am starting to get into routine. I am on top of lunch packing, agenda signing for the kids and I am getting into homework mode. I just finished my first official homework...a collage about myself (much less complex than an essay on 'crime and punishment in early modern England' ...but surprisingly more time consuming than I thought!) Today's classes were exactly the same as Tuesday's classes and so that was nice...a sense of knowing where I was going and what to expect when I got there. I ate lunch with some of my new friends and it does feel nice to have some familiar faces around. However, there does almost seem to be a bit of a high school feeling sometimes...maybe it's just me. There almost seems to be a "class distinction" between the early, middle, and senior years students in that I feel like the other groups are looking down on us early years people...possibly because we have spent some of our class time singing, dancing, and painting pictures of trees! Again, this is possibly just my imagination, but it reminds me of high school when the grade 11 kids were cooler than the "grade 10 babies" and of course the grade 12 kids were the coolest of them all! We'll see how it goes, maybe I am imagining this!
I was reminded of something today and I thought I would share it with all of my blogging buddies. Today in my Educational Psych class, my prof stopped me after class (...this is the one who learned all of our names in 2 hours!) and told me that he had a RSS (??) feed (I actually have no idea what this is!) and 'Educational Psych' had come through his feed and led him to my blog. Now I obviously realize that whatever I publish online, whether it be here or on recipezaar, that it is accessible to the whole world via the Internet. I also realize that there are many people who read my blog but will only comment on it when they see me in person...and for that matter that anyone could stop by to read it. I guess I just thought that my insignificant ramblings would be so uninteresting to the general public that it never really occurred to me that someone would ever happen across my blog. Anyway, the prof just mentioned casually that he had been led to my blog and he felt that he had the moral obligation to tell me that it had come through his feed and he was able to read what I wrote (!) I mentally tried to recall what I had written, but was pretty sure it was ok. I just wanted to share this and remind everyone that what you write is out there for everyone to read and you just never know who might be reading it! A great lesson for sure... (Thanks!)
