Rochester SAGE - Supporting Advanced & Gifted Education

Heinlein Quote

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan

The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do. – John Stuart Mill

I want my kids to fail.  That probably isn’t at the top of your list for your kids, but it should be.  Failure is one of the most important experiences they will ever have.  The road to success is paved with failure because failure teaches us how to succeed.

What is a place like me doing in a girl like this?

Here lies a snapshot of my favourite furniture store.

Nostalgia fills my daydreams whenever I set foot on this holy place. As a child, I wanted to be so many things: a chef, a nursery teacher, a poet, a writer, a philosopher, a scientist, an artist, a psychologist, a humanitarian, a WWF ambassador, and an archaeologist. The latter suggests why I have so much rapture for adventures, fossils, magic & mummies and why I fawn upon this particular store. It takes me back to the little wide-eyed girl that wanted (still wants) to engulf the adventures of Evey & Rick O’Connell. Sweet, sweet memories indeed.

I’ve been eying their magnanimous quill & ink sets but my pocket has an unwanted hole in it. And imagine to my chagrin, my precious black feather quill has been taken by another the day after I laid eyes on it. Oh, cruel, cruel, world!

Since I cannot afford anything in it for the time being, I try to visit the beaut as often as a couch potato (I’m working on it!) can go about being proactive. When I have more than enough dollaz, I shall buy everything in sight à la the late and great Michael Jackson. The day shall come when I am to utter the words, “I’ll take this and that, that…Oh, this, of course! And that stylish gramophone over there. By Jove, look at that chandelier! I simply must have it! Alas, I can’t pick! I wish to purchase everything!”. To which the salesperson wouldn’t question my earnest pickings simply because I am someone of utmost class and sophistication. I smile upon the day that shall be.

I’m a Barbie Girl, In a Barbie World

Image

Merely lyrics. As it is. I have never been and never will be a “Barbie” and I have never been and never will be in a Barbie World. I might (just might) reconsider if they were Disney Barbies. You know, because, I live in *cue music* “♫ A whole new world ♪”. Yes, I just went there. HUZZAH.

For now, Barbie nails would suffice. Lo and behold!

Disclaimer: I don’t by any means say I don’t like Barbies. I had quite a collection when I was the littlest of little girls. Me thinks you understand what I meant by “Barbie”. Now, as you were.
