On my way to Illinois this morning two things happened. One: it started snowing. Two: one of those automated signs told me the exit to the bridge to Illinois was closed. I debated turning around and returning to bed, but luckily the exit wasn’t actually closed…I don’t know if it was about to and I just got lucky or what, but rather than going home I did continue on to work.
Teaching today was fine. I realized today that at least one of my students has made absolutely no improvement this year. I feel like I am really trying with this student but they just aren’t getting it (or practicing either…and I guess I’m just not one of those super awesome teachers that has a year’s worth of practice motivation). But other students are making great progress—so at least I am not failing too many of them!
I put this as my facebook update today:
Yesterday: flip flops. Today: snow flurries.
and my sister Leslie wrote:
hm, i know flip flops is not a weather. are you wearing snow flurries today? those sound fantastically comfortable!
isn’t she a card?
Unrelated: I found this article about community service and how musicians relate to their public to be very interesting.
Have a happy Thursday!
