No GCC Love in San Diego

Apr 4th, 2010 | By | Category: All About Me, Rants, Travel, Work

San Diego 2010 Originally uploaded by dr.coop Well, I haven’t blogged in a while, so I’m just going to try and see if I can still do it. I went to the SITE (Society for Information Technology and Teacher Ed) conference last week. C was able to tag along since she can work from anywhere, […]



Straight People Just Don’t Get It

Oct 19th, 2008 | By | Category: All About Me, Lesbian, Rants

A gay friend of mine emailed me yesterday asking for help with something. Her father emailed her to ask what her position was on the Proposition 102 issue. He wanted for her to explain why “marriage was so important” to her. He felt that gay people can pretty much get all the same things that […]



Bye Bye T-mobile

Mar 27th, 2008 | By | Category: Rants, YouTube

It’s been great knowing ya! Yes, I’m moving to the company that you will probably end up buying, but that’s all rumors. Just like the rumor that 3G is on its way. But rumors just aren’t going to keep me around any longer. After what seems like 10 years, I must say good bye to […]



Reinventing Myself for What?

Jan 24th, 2008 | By | Category: Blogging, Rants, Teaching, Technology

I’ve been extremely busy lately reinventing myself. What exactly does that mean? Well, maybe reinventing isn’t the correct term. Maybe I’m recreating myself. Either way, it’s a lot of work. People in education are always saying that the today’s students are the millennials, digital natives, born on technology and live on technology. Well, I’m here […]



Got Caught in a Twitter Tornado Yesterday

Dec 28th, 2007 | By | Category: Rants, Twitter

I’m on my second week of a four week break from teaching. You gotta love that. But as I reflect back on my two week’s time, I’ve discovered that I’ve been working the whole time. Yep. I’ve been setting up my Blackboard courses and my course social network. I’ve been creating screencasts and podcasts. And […]



The Irony of My Life

Dec 11th, 2007 | By | Category: Rants, Technology, Utterz

I had to laugh at myself today when I realized the irony of my life. I spend a considerable amount of time each day communicating with people, albeit most of it is online. Today I had a face to face meeting with some colleagues at the district office, and in my rush to get there […]



Christmas Shopping

Dec 7th, 2007 | By | Category: Rants

How does a person who HATES Christmas have her christmas shopping all done? Easy. Don’t buy anything. No, I’m just kidding. I did that for 5 years before a certain someone said I couldn’t ignore Christmas any more. Think of the children. So I got pulled back into the hype. I still hate it though, […]



Weird Real Estate Rituals

Sep 25th, 2007 | By | Category: House, Rants

We put in an offer on a house yesterday. The house is in the 11th Ave & Glendale area, so much closer to work and play. I’m a little torn between being exciting and just being apathetic. I mean we still have this house to sell, and if you haven’t noticed, houses aren’t selling too […]



Is it Friday Yet? I’m So Over it!

Aug 16th, 2007 | By | Category: Rants, Work

Week of Accountability is always a treat, but this semester was especially exciting. I love watching administrators squirm, even if the dissension isn’t warranted. The best comment of the day was “…I didn’t realize we had turned into such a hostile environment.” Wow! I didn’t realize it either. Enrollment is down, so classes aren’t filling […]
