What do you love most about yourself? What do you love most about your favorite person? Are the two connected?

What do I love most about myself? My ability to eventually come to equilibrium. I say eventually because sometimes it takes a while. Somethings need to move around or change in order for equilibrium to settle in.

I also love my ability to make real work connections and examples with the information I tutor my students in. It seems to help them a lot, its fun to do and really makes sense of science. 

What do I love about my favorite person? Honestly, I can’t say that I have a favorite person. I love my students. I love the kind of connection you can have with them where you learn and grow together. You sometimes see them at their worst and definitely at their best. Seeing what they are capable of and helping them to realize that too. Going on their ups and downs with them makes me appreciate them more and my life more too.

We fell out. Hard.

i did what I had to do. I called…
