Firefox 3 is in its final beta version, which means it's as perfect as I can notice, techno-dunce that I am. It is SO fast, it feels like you have a new computer. I switched early because my computer is old and slow, and it was getting stuck with the amount of memory Firefox 2 used.
Firefox 3 is really fast. I thought people were just saying that, and it was just tech-nerd buzz.
Nope. It feels like I have a new computer. What is cooler than that?
And for free!
Today is Global Day for Darfur. The list of participating organizations is huge, and what strikes me is not only the long list of organizations who care about this issue, but the wide variety of approaches they have to the problems.
I'm still reading Lee Child's Without Fail backwards. It's a fascinating study, and I can't put it down. Even backwards. Except the cat knocked it into the tub (he really likes to watch things fall), and so now it's too wet to read.
How do you dry a book out? One would think I should know that sort of thing.
When I was growing my teaching business, I had a habit of shaking things up. I mean, really shaking things up. I would change so much from year to year, I would lose about 20% of my students with every change. I would make BIG changes. (The 20% didn't matter, because I'd get double that calling me.) I learned a ton. So did the kids.
I make fewer risks every year.
I remember the me that used to insist that you're not shaking things up enough if it's not scary. That if you're not shaking things up, you're not growing.
I tell my students to go crazy during their twenties. Explore, live, take risks.
But who ever said it had to stop in your thirties?
