Snow Day!!!

| | Comments (0)

We have a snow day today, yeah.

I don't have to work!
Ok there is really no reason why we should have a snow day. There is only about 1 inch of snow and the roads are already cleared. There is no ice and it is about 30o F. They are just wierd here .

I am a little disappointed though, I was taking some of my students to another school this afternoon to have a Warcraft III tournament. I have a friend that teaches computers at a school that is near here and he also has students that like to play games afterschool, so we thought it would be fun to have some competition. That's cancelled now but maybe we can reschedual it for next week.

Still here

I am still at home, and still sick. I am better than yesterday thou..
I am slowly getting better but now my sore throat has turned into a sore ear. I don't know why (she swallowed the fly, I guess she'll die)

I have had plenty of time for reading. I am almost finished with Michael Crichton's new book State of Fear. So far it is pretty good, better than the last one, All the Kings Men by Robert Penn Warren. (Sorry babe).

All the Kings Men was just slow. It was well written and a decent enough plot but it just was not going anywhere after like 100 pages. I will still try to finish it because it is supposed to be one of the greatest books of our time, I don't know why but maybe something will happen yet.

I have a cold

I think I have gotten the first cold in like 4 years. It is not so bad, yesterday I could not talk very well and felt the worst but today it is much better. Luckily, I have a three day weekend because of Presidents day.

I am still working on my new design. If you are reading this, then you probably noticed a small change and it will get bigger.

New Site

| | Comments (0)

I have been working on a new look for Craigsirk. Currently I have a flash site and an HTML site. I am going to combine them and make something totally new (hopefully)

I like my flash site, but it is not very practical. It is difficult to update the links and sometimes it is hard to read. I don't like the colors and style of my HTML site. The layout is nice but overall, it looks very sophmoric (is this spelled right? I don't know)

Hopefully you can see the new site by the end of February. I don't know if I will have time to finish it by then but we will see.

My Life is Boring

Do you ever feel like you don't do anything and then the week is over? I feel like that today. I know I have been teaching all week (and the kids have been roudy) but now I feel like I have done nothing.

Anyway, we have been working on HTML in our classes.

| Side note: I was sitting on my bed listen to "Third Day" on my iPod, all of a sudden, "Marron 5" started playing. I was nowhere near my iPod. It must have a mind of it's own. Marron 5 is trying to take over the world.

Some students have really taken a liking to it and have completed all thier lessons (they were only supposed to have half of them done this week) while some have not even started them.

This is one of the most frusterating things about my job. I teach tech to all 9th graders, not just the ones who want to. The other tech classes in the school have it good that the students that want to take the classes are in them.
