Slice it and Dice it and Splice It

Saturday, July 21, 2012

I am going to engage in the one act that really annoys me when I know my students are doing it: Plagiarize. Sample. Cut and Paste. Slice and Dice. Splice and Redact.

I am going to copy some of the inspirational things I've read around Spark People: I will tell you why: I am getting so old and my memory is not what it was. I fumble for the answers on Jeopardy! I know the answer, it just takes me a while to sort through my compendious filing cabinet. I read a wonderful blog here or a wonderful comment that somebody makes. And I want to remember it badly. So I will use this blog entry as an "aide memoire" (if I have the French correctly).

"Responsibility so weighs me down.
Things said or done long years ago,
Or things I did not do or say
But thought that I might say or do,
Weigh me down, and not a day
But something is recalled,
My conscience or my vanity appalled."

"Vacillation" by WB Yeats

If you start today and modify what you're doing then you've started to successfully become fitter, stronger and healthier...

It really is that simple. If you can only move for 1 minute and you choose to increase your exercise by another minute tomorrow and then exercise for 2 minutes every day this week you will be really successful...

Add one minute per week and in less than a year you will be exercising / moving and modifying for an hour every day...

If you can choose to exercise for an hour a day then you will be a different body shape than today. And you will fitter, stronger, healthier, more confident and happier...

Of that I can promise...

Until tomorrow...
