excitement

I just ordered Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer! I love the sentence within the book description which discusses creativity as something we all have; this idea breaks down perceived notions that only a select group of people are privy to creativity: “It’s a variety of distinct thought processes that we can all learn to use more effectively.” A-men. 

I’m excited about the prospect of reading this alongside some very sharp educators via a book club/read along! Thanks, Allie Bishop Pasquier!! 

dear self. . .

please remember this! 

I also feel like you should make no apology for leaving at a decent hour when possible (of course, there are always exceptions and some late nights). People who work until 10pm every night because they are trying to log in face time should know that managers will question their efficiency. You should be able to get your work done in an eight-hour day, unless you are up against a crazy project deadline. The key is to over-communicate with colleagues, and get some stuff done early so that you have leeway when the unpredictables. . .rear their heads. Granted, it depends on the business you are in. . .But if you are good at what you do, are efficient and organized, you probably won’t give your boss a reason to question your work, and leaving at what is by the world’s standards a decent hour. – Pilar Guzman, editor and chief of Martha Stewart Living.

. . .keep sanity!

went to see moonrise kingdom; county theatre, doylestown, pa. it was brilliant, in a word. i loved the depiction of childhood along with a romantic essence, inserted with whimsy and darkness. of course, it was visually beautiful.
