Macarons inspire me

My Saturdays have been swallowed by work. Work will continue to swallow my Saturdays until the end of the month at least, and that's only the official events. The reality is that I take home my work every day so that I can finish it in time.

It's a good thing that I have fun at work, or I would hate it. By necessity, it's eating my life and being. That's what being a teacher is like.

So, for the time being, here is something that I did FOR work -- a collage of pictures from the Internet that I had put together into a 'vision board' for a sharing. So, just by looking at this stuff, you can have a pretty good idea of what I'm like and what I value.

I especially dislike it when people are careless with words. Words shape thought, and thought shapes reality. People who continue to use 'macaroon' with reference to almond flour biscuits even after being corrected deserve to be called 'moroons', since they won't get it anyway.

I haven't given up on being able to have a personal or an artistic life outside work, but we'll see. This July is hitting me something fierce.
