For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. ~T.S. Eliot

New year, new design. I’ve actually been playing with that a lot lately. I like the last one but it was too dark. The one before that had some other issues with fonts that didn’t want to be fixed

I really like this one, it’s very Steampunk and I think I’ll keep it for awhile. the widgets also work nicely and I haven’t had to tweak the style sheets any yet.

I had my first “week” of work. Week is in quotes because we had two snow days. I didn’t understand today’s snow day–until I saw the ice under the very light dusting of snow. Cars were sliding all over our street.

I am loving my new job. I haven’t really done anything yet other than some training and meeting a bajllion people, but everyone I’ve met is really great. Seriously cheerful folk. And the others in my position–well there isn’t a lot of turnover, which is a very good sign. I really think I’ve found what I’m supposed to be doing. It draws on all of my strengths–technology, educational technology and working with kids and teachers. I have a pretty steep learning curve because of just how amazing our school system is aobut using technology–but none of it is completely unfamiliar. The only thing I’m actually nervous about is setting up the ginormous sound system at the middle school I’m at.

And it makes the time in school not a wrong turn. I woldn’t have found this passion if I hadn’t tried out that childhood dream. I admire teachers deeply I just finally couldn’t commit to teaching English. I wish I could have found a cheaper way to do it though!

So I’m unbelievably happy. wowl
