I'm still doing an apple a day, but having problems doing the rest of my BE list. I'm still trying to get into the swing of things.
I watched the Oprah episode about "Waiting for Superman." We have a problem in our schools here too. I would love to figure out how to fix it. Ken and I had a long conversation about it afterwards. Here they changed our public neighborhood schools to magnet schools just as a way out of charter schools coming to Amsterdam.
Some of what Oprah said really hit home.
"Everybody wants to win the lottery but you shouldn't have to win the lottery to go to a good school."
"We as a society have be come so overprotective that we have forgotten who we are protecting."
I feel like our school's "improvements" are just a face lift disguising the real problems.
ArtsyBE is the act of doing something and being artsy. ArtsyBE is a state of mind, body and soul. Being artsy is findng that place, that thing that frees you and gives you peace. ArtsyBE gives you a peace that you enjoy separate from the everyday life. I started this blog to MOTIVATE MYSELF, if anyone finds this helpful then it was worth it.
