It was nice talking on the phone with you yesterday! I’m glad to hear that your office party went well and hope you’re having fun with Parker and his friends.
Like I was telling you over the phone, I taught a practice lesson to my peers on Friday and I think it went really well. I gave them a huge stack of comic books and had them find as many ways as possible to organize them. The lesson was taped, and in review I think my biggest issue is that I say the word “cool” A LOT. I also completed a project for another Education class where I had to make a website that corresponded with a hypothetical unit; I stuck with the comic books theme and made this site: The Comic Book Medium. If you’re bored, there’s a ton of hyperlinks on there to cool resources about comic books that you can check out.
This weekend Jessica and I cooked a ton. For dinners, we made a pasta bake and chicken enchilada puffs. We made eggnog and Hershey’s mini-pies as well, and both of them turned out quite nicely. I also went out to lunch with the percussion section today, so this has turned out to be a really tasty weekend!
For the challenge this week, I wrote a letter to Grandma and Grandpa Matzinger. I haven’t seen them since this summer, and they’ve sent me two letters which I’ve yet to respond to (#DeadbeatGrandson), so this was nice extra motivation to send them a card back and tell them how I’m doing at school.
I also was surprised by another moment of reconnecting this week when I received a text of of the blue which said “want to make a zelda themed melodic death metal band?” It was from none other than Ronan! He had texted me on accident, but it was fun talking with him about a recent Battle of the Bands he was in and his plans to make a video game themed metal band. What are the chances that he would text me during a week with such a relevant challenge!?
Anyway, I hope you’re doing well!
