My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Teaching and Computers

Blog Prompt: Today is Embrace Your Geekness Day. Geeky usually refers to technology but are you “geeky” about some hobby that causes your friends and family to roll their eyes once you start to talk about it? If so, share with us and we will try not to roll our eyes!

When anyone mentions the words “teaching” or “computers” near me, my entire family can be seen rolling their eyes in the back of their heads! They are the things that make my family want to yell – Don’t get her started!!!

I love teaching and love to talk about teaching. It was more than just a job to me and I think that is why I still love it, even after retiring. I still keep my finger in it by teaching university courses in the summer and writing a daily teaching blog. I feel like it has become more of a hobby for me because I don’t need to do it in order to pay the bills. Usually in our travels I will cross paths with another teacher and we will have a great time talking about it.

The other hobby I have is using my computer. I’m not a hardware nut who can build and repair computers but I love to use the software. As I mentioned, I write a daily blog for teachers. I also plurk and twitter many times during the day (if you haven’t got hooked on one of them yet, you are missing something really fun!). I use spreadsheets to keep track of my finances and bills as well as my grocery list. I am constantly on the internet researching topics and connecting with other people (about scrapbooking, knitting, gardening, and of course – teaching).

Thanks for letting me tell you about my geekiness…and not rolling your eyes while I gushed about them.

Well you are way more computer geek than me, LOL. I do facebook and my blog and that is just about it.

And I can't imagine anyone rolling their eyes when you start talking about teaching.
