Learning About Moths…

I try to keep my daytime “Teacher Life” from my nighttime adult life. However, I saw this last week and had to share. I think I would’ve died if a moth this big flew in front of me. It’s beautiful, but it’s massive compared to our NJ brown moths.

Playing with Bootstrap 4: #100DaysofCode, R2D13

It’s Caturday and “School is Over” Saturday! That means I can focus my time, mind, and energy on my coding. Today I was designing a portfolio website using Bootstrap 4. Actually, I’m trying to review HTML5 and different frameworks. It seemed like a good idea to review Bootstrap using W3Schools’ website. Now that I’ve gone through the information a second time, it makes sense. It’s still a work in progress, but this is what I’ve done so far. Continue reading

Jaws: 43 Years Since I Was Scared About the Beach

That scene!!! I was 6 yrs old when it came out. The way Spielberg filmed it is part of the reason it’s a classic. Along with #RoyScheider saying to #RobertShaw “You’re gonna need a bigger boat 🚣‍♀️. https://t.co/9qxoSxjE6u #Jaws #Jaws43Years — BovaryCee ♋️🌻🙋🏾 (@BovarysComplnt) June 20, 2018 43-Years?!?!?!

Accessibility, R2D12: #100DaysofCode

I think I’m on Day 12 of my second round. It’s been a little difficult keeping track of my coding for the #100DaysofCode. Although I mark it on my calendar, I forget to talk about it on my blog. So, today, I’m making a special effort to remember. Today, I’ve been working on the Applied Accessibility tutorials on FreeCodeCamp.

When I logged in two weeks ago, I was happy to see the new tutorials. These were topics that I was already researching on the Internet. The hardest part about having ADHD as an adult is I have difficulty holding on to new material. So, I’m glad that I could review JavaScript and HTML5/CSS concepts. (Whew! I can’t believe I finally said that out loud! As a teacher, I deal with young students that are just starting their journey with ADHD. Huge that I made a connection to my difficulties.) I’ve dealt with technology accessibility with my elementary students. Now, I’m looking forward to learning about coding to make my web pages more accessible.

Dirk Gently Is Back!!!


Yasss! Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective Agency is finally back! I’ve been waiting for Season 2 on Hulu. I enjoyed the original BritVersion and this reboot is pretty good. Glad I noticed the new episodes today. It was a great break after today’s World Cup Games (still shocked about Messi). I like the quirky humor and the supernatural theme in the episodes. The show also appeals to my morbid sense of humor. Seasons 1 and 2 are now on Hulu, so enjoy. By the time you read this, I will have binge-watched half the episodes.

 

3 Faces of a #PhilMitchell Story: Denise Fox ( #EastEnders )

EastEnders Phil Mitchell (Steven McFadden) did his best to convince Kim Fox-Hubbard (Tameka Empson) not to trust DI Ainsworth. He even told Kim that “He was trying to be nice,” when warning her about Ainsworth. That made me giggle. (I actually laughed out loud and interrupted my cat’s nap.) The look on the Fox Sisters’ faces was priceless.

Nice isn’t a word I would associate with Phil. It’s rare that we see a full smile on his face. Phil Mitchell being nice? Never! But he continued with his story hoping it would charm the Fox Sisters… It didn’t work…Continue reading
