Because I’m a creeper, I was checking out other teachfor.us blogs from the Philly institute. Largely, everything said about institute ops was positive!
I did notice, with no small amusement, that nearly every blog mentioned one or more of the following:
- “Alphabet soup” (RE: acronyms)
- Cultish conversations
- Composing complete sentences of nothing but acronyms then having to go back and translate them for parents/friends/sig others
- Being exhausted
- Drinking mass-quantities of coffee
- Riding school buses
- Staying up until 2 a.m. to write lesson plans
Thus, I went back to my own blog to realize that I had also written about pretty much every one of those things. Uniqueness is truly an illusion.
