Back from/to Paradise!

Today’s my first day back in school. It’s also the first day with some of the kids going to the local public homeschool resource program. So it was just Nick, Jurr, and myself here today for nearly the whole day.

We started the day off doing some exercise. Jurr (@thetypicaldonger) introduced me to these cool visual workouts by Neila Rey.


We did 3 reps, the planks were really hard… It was nice to get all sweaty early in the day.

After that Jurr and I worked on redesigning the new group Kanban based off my sketch. The board’s velcro backing broke and the whole thing wont stick to the wall anymore, so I’ll have to fix that. Otherwise it looks great. I’ll be testing it out with the students for the next 2 weeks then write up a full report.

After that Jurr, Nick and I played Starcraft 2, I got pwned. Then we played a game I was a little bit (a lot bit) better at, Team Fortress 2. We all did really well playing with people on the internet. So that was cool.

Then I went on to working on e-mails, dealing with my ALC account.

In light of Valentines day we are writing about love. We are writing about the people in the ALCE community and what we love about them, then a list a things we love about ourselves.

I really love how willingly everyone in this community jumps into activities and tries new things. The kids and their parents are open to trying new things and having new experiences.

What I love about me:

  1. I love that I am very grounded.
  2. I love my cheery personality and that I get along will with others.
  3. I love my playful outlook, even though I can be quite cynical I still am light hearted.
  4. I love my compassion.
  5. I love my body for being well and having strength, even if it can’t plank more than 30 seconds.
