Musings on life
Today I celebrate the completion of teaching for one full school year in public education. Wow.
So I went to that conference on Friday. I feel I did a good job with my presentation, and I got some positive feedback. However, I realized that I really do not like being around snooty egocentric kissass people. I also do not like being grilled on subjects that have nothing to do with my presentation. I am being recruited to pursue a doctorate, but I am thinking this may not be the path for me. I'm not cut-throat enough, and I actually like what I am doing now.
Happy New Year! I just got accepted to present at a conference in March. Yay!! My professor sent it in. He also sent my article in to several journals for publication, so keep your fingers crossed for me. It'd be a hoot to be published. And, no, I have not really thought about how I will have to stand up in front of a lot of people with a bunch of letters after their names and talk for an hour...holy MOG.

Due to my current career-related endeavors, Lady Elaine is on permanent hiatus. I will continue to have bitingly sarcastic, darkly humorous, and intensely witty thoughts, however. Feel free to call or email me if you would like to hear some.
...is what our 7 year old wrote about one of her classmates. Pretty deep, I thought, until she told me the specifics and I realized that she meant balance literally. Still, I like the quote.

"So, Kurt Cobain shoots himself in the face and dies. Yet Vanilla Ice is still alive. That's all you need to know about how the universe works."
This was my answer when asked what the three most popular street names are. Chris read it off a cereal box. The real answer is Main, Park, and Elm, or something like that.
So I was getting all bogged down trying to find an article on tech integration in the classroom blah blah blah, when Chris comes in and puts on this super kool kitschy faux 70s jam. And whaddya know? I'm all happy again!
Thx, computer, I needed that!
