Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
Today is a big day. I wonder if I can put it in one sentence.
I will be dropping my daughter off at a class, taking my son to school, getting my Beloved ready and getting her in the car, then I will pick my daughter up, drop her off at school, take my wife to an appointment, schedule an appointment for an eye doctor, pick my children up from school, pick up a meal, take my wife to another appointment and then take my family to church.
Oh, yes, and then there is coffee, Piping hot, dark and bitter. Ok, two sentences.
False advertising is a no no in my book. Looking up at the picture from last year, It will be necessary to take a new picture every month to stay truthful. I have less hair, more grey, additional wrinkles, an expanded waistline and a much larger coffee cup.
Work starts back tomorrow. I wonder if they will recognize me. I haven’t been there since December 2nd, 2021.
I coordinate volunteers at the prison and I used to teach inmates how to cook. I have been working there since 2008. I teach a few classes that include first aid, defensive tactics, edged weapon defense, force cell extractions, and importantly, emotional intelligence, a newer skill in my toolbox.
Likely, I will let the rough and tumble certifications lapse and stick to professional development endeavors. It isn’t worth the wear and tear.
I was thinking about getting into the realm of teaching at the Training Academy. I have been an instructor for a decade. There is a class I have waited over five years to take about developing curriculum, and I can’t seem to get a foot in the door. Somehow, it ends up in my mouth instead.
This class is important, as I need to learn how to present information to a diverse group of people from all walks of life with different learning styles.
Maybe I should find a way to practice this skill while I wait. Hmm.. I am not sure if I can make a presentation or convey information with the written word.
Practice makes better, I suppose.
Well, I am off to adventures somewhat known. Have a beautiful day!
