Truth be told, my head is so fuzzy thanks to all of the cold meds I am guzzling that I can’t really think straight. I have that hazy disconnected feeling that usually keeps me from taking meds in the first place. Somewhere in that hazy feeling, I thought it would be a good idea to do yoga….not a good idea. While trying to keep myself balanced, I decided that I need to set a new goal to keep myself motivated for the summer. I have decided that my goal is to be able to do this:
I’m hoping that by the time I am able to do this I will also have found those pants….possibly in red. I’ve been doing yoga for about 7 years now, but not nearly as seriously as I would like to, and not on the level it would take to do something like this. This will give me something to shoot for.
Of course, that could just be the drugs talking…..
On the upside, I finally submitted the last of my graded assignments today. I have officially finished the taught phase of my degree and am now free to work on my thesis. I’ve already started doing some of the research, and am having a lot of fun revisiting my good friends Ira Shor, Paulo Freire and Norman Fairclough. Tomorrow me and my pal James Paul Gee will investigate the language of power, and how that applies to kids when they are learning about culture…..that is of course until I get distractted by animal videos on youtube, or the meds somehow fry my brain to the point where I decide to give up on my idea of looking how cultural portrayals and stereotypes in contemporary children’s literature.
That is still a very large possibility.
The next post will be my 100th. I will have made it to my original goal. I guess I better make it count.
