April Fools Day.
I always hated the term since I was a child. The bullies in my elementary school enjoyed it a bit too much for me. Although I wasn't the one being bullied, I hated seeing others mistreated.
So I chose to combine a few "foolish" mistakes I've made when I was new to the site.
1. grossly miscalculated food and drinks I tracked.
By default, many meats are indicated in units, not servings, so I may have out 1 slab of bacon for all I knew.
2. Getting points by mistake. Sooooooo did not know what the heck I was doing.
"let's select this to see what happens..." Hmmmm...eventually I earned a trophy. COOL!
Yep. I was really stupid. Like getting a new cell phone. Who reads the manual? Only if problems arise, right?
3. The trivia questions - I should know this based on ???...Oh! Articles I've read.
Duh! I was probably scoring in the lowest point range. No need for even looking at the leader board. It's not like I'd ever be listed.
Nice to know though...
4. Last, but not least, getting friends. Hey! I never "clicked" anybody for a while until I realized that I could pick them as a friend. They'd also have to "friend" me. Don't laugh. I JUST opened a Facebook account. Go figure!
Well, I was a fool. Why? I should've READ what to do and followed the directions. This is what I teach my students to do.
Feel free to tell me about your "foolish" actions you committed on this site. Let's all get a good laugh. See. No bullying here!
