Growing Older

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      8 comments

I turned 60 yesterday, and today when cleaning out my Dropbox folder I found this. It seemed appropriate! As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. I have seen too man... Read more

Haven't posted any words of wisdom for a very long time but an encounter with my boss made me think I should post this. I work in technology, one day last week a couple of teachers told me they could not get the internet or their gradebook.... Read more
