The adult believes he is the child’s creator, while what he should rightly be is the servant of creation. And all he succeeds in being is a dictator, whose wishes the child must blindly obey. The adult has considered this very kind of dictatorship to be one of his own social problems, but he has… Continue reading Why Children Need (Certain) Freedoms
… is when I started writing my morning pages today. A little early, I know. My head was full of thoughts and refused to sleep any longer, so… what can you do. Last entry in my first journal! It is all filled up with personal ramblings. On I go to journal no. 2.
I am grateful for Dedication. This excitement about new things to happen Push-ups. I’m told I can get from 0 to 3 push-ups in a week. Let’s find out if it is true! Children with “difficult behaviors” that show you their true selves when you just hold them for a bit.
This morning, I am grateful for Shortcuts. even WordPress has single key shortcuts. Who knew! Getting sh***t done early in the morning. Mentoring with Ted. I feel like I’m moving forward now. Never underestimate the power of a coach/mentor! Push-ups: Ted says I will be able to do them within a week. Let’s see 🙂… Continue reading Sunday Gratitudes

I’ve recently become excited about teaching and implementing (with) technology again, and so I was super excited to find Wildflower Montessori. It is an initiative started in Cambridge, MA, aiming to provide the Montessori-typical environment of education and care tailored to the… Continue reading Rice Pipe Non-Circuits
At the end of each day, I hang my clothes on simple hooks that I’ve mounted on my bedroom door – a simple 5€ solution to hanging up clothes. Now though, the doors are about 3 meters high, so the hooks are too far up to be reachable by stretching my arm. But jumping is… Continue reading Hooks Up High
Participated in the Tierschutzlauf yesterday. 5k in 32:47,8. Starting point, and given that I felt a little sick it was fine! I felt better afterwards. Step by step.
I just found out I am likely to be a multipotentialite. After a week full of self-doubts, also wondering what I really want to do with my life, and if my current choices are what I want, this helped me. It is OK to have many interests!
