Journal

I bought this book on the enthusiastic recommendation of a co-worker. Based on how often the children in my class make me take deep breaths of “I am calm. I am a tree. The wind may blow but I bend and sway and never break”, reading this may help me to not lose a few branches.

A book report will probably come when I’m done reading it, but I thought the title was pretty joke-worthy on its own.

I'll refrain from my own observations.  Most of them make Lloyd made.

    I regularly tell people that I understand Harold so much better now that I have Tim.

    […] The Male Brain book? Fascinating. I’ve read through it once and will have to read it again more carefully. It talks about how hormones change how brains operates, and the part that has helped me the most at school is understanding that little boys suffer from “must move or I will die” programming. They have the need to 1) watch something move; 2) make something move; or 3) move. […]
