Who's Your Daddy?!?!?!
I had a dream that involved me staying in a hotel in downtown Boston (that doesn't exist in real life).

I was at the buffet where they tried to feed me salmon, that was in a giant square chunk and was cut like a canned ham, with either sour cream or a mashed potato and fish gravy topping.

Through my stay, I had to keep my dog, Red, on a leash, or she'd eat all the food. Sadly, Red is probably now eating anything she wants up in Heaven.

The only reason I remembered this dream is due to her being in it.

I have skimmed through both the math and english sections of this. I say skimmed because I find it difficult to read on a screen. I am considering getting a jump drive, bringing it to Kinkos, and printing it out (I might get in trouble for over 100 pages of material at work).

When I read through the English section, this was my first thought...

"So basically they want to get rid of Kindergarten and make it 1st grade."

I honestly have no problem with that, but I think it might be difficult to wrangle up kindergardeners and put them all at desks to learn for a full day, unless they have gotten rid of AM/PM Kindergarden.

Math, it really comes down to one thing.

Why?

When you are handed a book of algebra equations, and you can not place them to what you need in real life, it is going to be difficult to deal with. Sure if you want to be a doctor or a scientist or an inventor, you would need it. If you're goal is to have a restaurant, be a pastry chef, etc, other maths may be more viable.

I'm sorry, but I can not think of one aspect of my life at current where I would regularly use beyond basic algebra, and when I mean Basic Algebra I mean the stuff I learned in 6th grade.

I think in Elementary and middle school you should get a taste for the maths, and when you get into high school, work at what would be your focus.

I may have passed High School if they let me take Geometry right off the bat.

Instead I failed Algebra 1 (or the equivalent) 3 times, and this really shook me badly when I went into college.

My thought pattern behind this whole thing is the materials to allow it to happen. How teachers would have change, how textbooks would have to change, how parents, yes parents, would have to change. You need to be able to have an atmosphere where children will actually want to learn and in certain areas of the country, that isn't going to happen anytime soon.

I will be interested to see how this continues.

Thoughts?

As she walks to the dumpster, Bella reads the flier, which shows a picture of a sad wolf, under which is written, "Save The Olympic Wolf." There are Olympic wolves?! That's awesome! I bet they're just like regular wolves, except they wake up at 4 a.m. every morning for wolf training with their strict Ukrainian coaches who encourage the wolves with broken-English shouts of, "You want to be puppy? Or you want to be wolf?!"

I finally spent the Amazon gift card that I got for my birthday after fighting with Amazon about how it came about.

I got Neverwinter Nights Diamond and a new battery charger for my camera battery.
