    Happiness today was getting fist-bumped by a student I'm teaching over the next few weeks. I guess that's progress?

    Happiness today was seeing tacky "mud, sweat and beers" sticker on a muddy ute (pickup truck). Very country.

    Lol! That would make a great country song title.

    It would indeed. It has beer in the title, it should suffice.

    Happiness today was going home after teaching almost a full day of classes.

    Aw, how nice. :)

    Happiness today was this afternoon, laying in the sun. Love the warmer weather.

    A nice way to spend the afternoon. Over here, we're enjoying the warmth while it lasts.

    Happiness today was a development in my teaching placement. Yesterday, I gave an English class on context in writing. Our context for the unit is Environment and Landscape; how people relate to their surroundings. I had the students analyse some Australian songs that related to this context, and one student pointed out that there were no songs from Indigenous Australians included. I thought he had a really good point, so today, I did the class a solid by playing 'Treaty' by Yothu Yindi on the screen, and began the class that way. That kid deserves credit for calling me out on that, and I felt like I did the class a disservice. Today, I feel like I rectified that, and it feels good.

    Teenagers are sharper than a lot of people give them credit for. I hope to teach them, but I also think I'm going to learn a lot from them.

    I love that you used songs in your teaching. I definitely agree, teenagers are quite clever; most have a content knowledge that goes way beyond what I knew at their age. It's very impressive.

    Happiness today or actually right now is chocolate chip ice cream.

    Happiness today was a student calling me a buzzkill. Looks like I'm starting to get the hang of this whole teaching thing.

    Haha, yes


    Happiness today would be if my forum posts went through the first time I sent them. It takes three or so tries to get them to post.
