Build Better Relationships by being Yourself

Yesterday we discussed social media. I explained why marketing in this day and age is really about marketing yourself, which is why the various types of social media are so very important.

Today, while the advice I’m about to give can be used in marketing, I really want to talk about building relationships in the classroom, because, contrary to popular opinion, teaching is not just “drill and kill…” Continue reading Build Better Relationships by being Yourself

JWC Day 11: Strong Feelings

Seems I flip-flopped yesterday’s post with today’s. Today was supposed to be the “what if” post, but since I’ve already done that…

Let’s talk about something I feel strongly about.

I feel like I always end up doing this anyway, and proving my point requires me to revisit old issues which some see as me dwelling or harping on things that are over and done with. So, I think the way I’m going to handle this is to just give you some links to posts where I’ve already discussed things that I feel strongly about. That means this post *should* be really short.

Keep your fingers crossed. I’m not good at brevity. Continue reading JWC Day 11: Strong Feelings

This seems familiar.

I love it when my faith in synchronistic events is reinforced. After the latest posts, this comic showed up in my Facebook newsfeed. It pretty much sums up my feelings on the correspondences with a certain someone, which finally seem to have stopped.

You can find this comic where I found it on Geek x Girls, or you can find it on it’s original site, Fudge that Sugar.

Prejudice Run Amok

There seems to be an epidemic of educated men saying the most ridiculously sexist things lately. I’m hardly one to be a proponent of the newest wave of feminism with it’s unbridled male-bashing, but the idiotic statements, in the news and semi-locally, about women in fields heretofore dominated by men have made me think that perhaps that battle isn’t quite done being fought either. With all the focus on Caitlyn Jenner and the trans-movement, I think I forgot that, in America at least, we haven’t made all that much progress after all.

Don’t mistake me, we definitely have opened the doors for women to enter into fields that have been previously shut to them. And the recent victories in the LGBTQ community are wonderful; we’re closer to marriage equality for all, finally. As for the race war, in theory all the media coverage of the racial prejudices of police departments across the country will bring an end to the race debate for once and all (wishful thinking, I know, but I’m trying not to be completely sour). All of these small victories working together should equal a big victory and an end to inequality, especially in a country who’s motto is one of freedom and opportunity for all…

But we are most definitely not there yet. Continue reading Prejudice Run Amok
