I have a friend at work who is also new to our school, and we sometimes chat about how intense it's been to be new at that place. 

One thing that's happened is that our entire lives have been taken over by school.  It's like we live in a school bubble.  For me, it means I don't tweet or read tweets.  I get behind on blogging and reading blogs.  Also, I have absolutely no idea what's happening in the world.  Like current events.  I don't know current events, and neither does my work pal.  That is, I don't know it unless Rachel Maddow tells me about it, because I actually watch Rachel just about every night.

Anyway, the whole current event situation became embarrassingly clear the other day when we were both in Restricted Recess (where the kids who don't do their homework go instead of outside to have fun), and one little guy asked us for help with his Current Event.

"Do you know about that shooting?" he asked us.

We looked at him blankly.

"Hmmmm," we said.

"You know," he said, and then he described some details.

My pal and I looked at each other helplessly.  It's just true that we don't know any current events.

Your school seems like it has a strong collaborative culture.

That's the good news.

If you're listening to Rachel, you have all the news you really need, imho.

Carry on. You are doing swell

I'm getting a little irked about your lack of blogging. Yes, I know you're crazy
busy, but one sentence every couple of days would be enough to satisfy me.
I'm freaking out, missing wordsavvy. Please i beg of you. Throw me a bone here.

this goes for pronto as well. what's going on up there?

Now I'm nervous that I may have pressured you when that's probably the last thing
you need. Ignore previous remarks. All is good!
