As Time Goes By…

2 Jan

Happy New Year everyone! And thanks to those of you who  you visited my blog once again this year…that’s if you have been visiting… because I have stopped writing… or at least haven’t written very often these days! But I am still alive! (And hopefully you are too 🙂 And so…here we are…again…

There are 525,600 minutes in a year and in 2012, (when I started blogging) I crossed the 30 million mark in minutes spent on Earth!

…So that means that as of midnight of the 31st of December this year I will arrive at 33,899,040!…(that’s 23,541 days!) but again, who’s counting? Still over 33 and one half million minutes alive!? Is that an accomplishment or just something that breathing and waking up every day took care of for me? Life in the fourth dimension took forever to move through when I was a child…but now it seems like I am definitely on the fast track to old age and beyond for this year (2020) I shall reach the age of 65.

And that is officially, at least by American standards, old! Can you say Medicare?

I’ll be leaping over the 35 million minute threshold early into 2020 and I will do my best to keep enjoying every minute of those minutes! So do your best to Spend your time… and enjoy it… wisely…

Remember! It may be a crazy and unpredictable world but it still is the only world in town.

Anyway, thanks for continuing to slow yourself down every once in a while by taking the time to visit and read my blog…and

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

More on the importance of words…

3 Sep

Mr. Picone’s recommended Collection of

Big-Ass Words

     In any language, words are important. No matter what language you speak, increasing your vocabulary within that language will increase your intelligence, your knowledge and your ability to communicate. Building a large vocabulary is like acquiring a large circle of friends. The more people you know the more opportunities you have to make connections in life that will enhance your ability to influence others and for others to influence you. It works the same with words. As more and more words become available to you, your ability to access knowledge will increase as will your ability to understand what others have already learned and have written down for you to read and absorb. And you’ll look sound and actually be smarter!

One day in class my students were copying the weekly vocabulary list into their notebooks when a student sighed and remarked, “Man, these are some big-ass words!”

So here is your opportunity to begin your own personal dictionary of big-ass words for your own enjoyment, enrichment and edification. This is the fundamental lesson about education. It’s all about the student! If you want to learn you will learn. Teachers are facilitators who tell you the information you need to know or who can show you where to find it and who can help you to process it and find meaning in it but they can’t remember it for you and they can’t pay attention for you and they can’t listen for you. Education is all about being a good STUDENT.

So…If you are not familiar with a word that you see then write it down and look for its definition. (No need to go crazy, usually a single word synonym will do) Do whatever it takes to help you understand the word’s meaning and be able to make it one of your new Big-Assed best friends. If making new friends is not your thing, well then, just keep on reading…but just in case, look at it this way; What if you don’t like what I have to say? If you’re going to take the time to read this blog then why not come out at the end smarter than you were when you started?
