Feeling much like Cinderella at the stroke of midnight, I have been extremely distracted today, so I have put off writing today’s post until now. On the other hand, this is how I got through college, so I am used to working well under pressure.
A few random thoughts for today.
In an earlier post I mentioned the website style design by Sitehouse that I had won at the MJ2Day workshop. However, I have been having troubles with downloading and uploading and side loading, if there is such a thing. I took my time selecting the right choice of a template, finally placed my order and the shipped me a link. Not knowing who they were dealing with, they put a one day expiration date on the link. So a few days later when I went to upload it, it didn’t work. Sitehouse graciously gave me the link again, this time with a two week window. I did download the link, but I could not successfully upload it to Showit. But thanks to Showit’s great online support team, namely a nice young fellow named Jason, I was walked through the correct steps to upload my chosen style design. And there is nothing wrong with the Sitehouse design or the Showit site because they wouldn’t do the volume of business they do if they had faulty products. It was all me. I just don’t have the computer intuition and common sense to figure out what step I am missing. Of course it was an easy fix and I just shook my head because I could have and should have figured it out myself.
My statistics for this blog show that on occasion someone visits my About page. Unfortunately, my About page is under construction. I like to write…I am not good at writing about myself. Time to work on the about page.
My throwback picture of today goes back to my first year of teaching. I was at Glendale High School. The band director was gung ho into school spirit. On every Friday during football season, he would take the band marching around campus playing the fight song. This happened on my prep hour, so one Friday I grabbed a tuba and another coach grabbed a bass drum and we marched along with the band. This moment was captured for all eternity by one of the school newspaper photographers. I started teaching teaching at the age of 29. I look like a child.
