LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 8/27/09 + Strykisms

   0


Amazing what a difference a week makes! This past week was filled with more bandwagon packing than a Ford pickup full of migrant workers. I guess all that trend chasing wore everyone out, because today the cblogs were barren! I had to double-check my calendar, make sure today wasn't Saturday. Not that I'm complaining! Today's recap was a breeze! I wonder if it has anything to do with folks going back to school.

Speaking of school, I haven't mentioned this before but I've been trying my darndest for the past year to become a math teacher. I did plenty of tutoring in the spring and I've got another tutoring gig starting in October, but it's all peanut money. I'm still looking for a full-time job. I almost got one back in December at this charter school, but since then I haven't had so much as an email response from anyone else. I just need something to do during the day. I sometimes think about crawling back to the Barnes & Noble I worked at during high school, but that place frightens me.

But that's my problem, not yours. Your problem at the moment is to run! Run far away! The rhythm is gonna get you! Run!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Schooled

Gather round boys and girls! School may be back in session, but you should still have a bit of time left to skirt your responsibilities and write some damn blogs!

In the true spirit of the classroom, this month’s Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “things that video games have taught you.” Whether you want to write about a specific skillset you’ve acquired, love (or hate…) for a genre, game design, music composition, edutainment games, general life lessons, or even delve into more abstract territory…. As long as you’ve learned something, even if you didn’t realize it at the time, I want to fucking hear about it!

The world is your goddamn oyster here! All you have to do is slap some words together and format the title as “Schooled: [your blog title here].” It’s that fucking easy, folks! If your blog is up to snuff, it might even get promoted to the Front Page!

Don’t hold out on me, people! I read everything over in the Cblogs. I’ll know if you’re playing hooky this month, and I will look at you with sad puppy eyes if you let me down.
