Busy, busy, busy – End of the Day for August 21, 2014

End of the day Logo

The school year has only just started, but life is getting busy already. Auditions for the Fall play are tomorrow already so there has been much work memorizing monologues and a short song. Tap shoes had to be purchased for the drama class as the Spring musical will require a lot of tap dancing. They will be learning tap in their drama class, so they will start using the shoes quite soon. The first of the school fundraisers, along with the first school dance are coming quite quickly, too.

Rosanne is quite involved in the school, being on the school board and a big part of the parent’s association. While I understand why she likes doing this, there are times I wish she would learn to say no. There are times during the school year when, along with all out other commitments, we have something happening every night of the week. This can get a bit overwhelming,for me, but as others are fond of telling me, this period of high school will be over almost before I know it, so I need to try and enjoy every minute of it.

Homework - PaD 1/25/07

I am speaking on Smartphones, Technology and Your Career on Friday, so I am preparing my notes and the iPad I will use to demo the apps I am showing off. I find that people don’t use but a fraction of the power they carry around with them everyday and this talk is my effort to show them how useful their devices can be. Something as simple as using their calendar effectively and Waze to make sure they are in the right place at the right time can make a dramatic difference in their career. I plan on recording the talk, so you can watch it here sometime next week if everything goes well.

Just one more thing keeping us hopping in the coming weeks. Things will really get going now until the odd busy/restful time of the holidays arrive. Wish us luck! (LAUGH)
