EmptyNestMom posted this article on her blog today. It talks about the price high achievers pay. I was one of those high achievers... While I loved to learn, the classroom actually kept me from truly learning anything in-depth or worth remembering. Teachers were too busy trying to keep it under control or they simply did not show any type of passion or interest in the subject they were teaching. It was simply a job to them...but apparently not one that they thought was worth doing well (there were a few exceptions of course). Since I hate repeating myself, you can see my comment on her blog. Thanks for the great article, Cindy!
And mom and dad, if you're reading this don't take it personally okay? I think y'all did a fabuloso job of raising us! And I did learn, but it just could've been better...and times have definitely changed since then! You know I love you both and could NEVER have asked for better parents!!!
Not one to want to end on a down note (well, at least not all the time!), I got this HILARIOUS video from my friend Jaybird. Warning: This will be extremely funny to some of you and just plain dumb to the rest of ya!
