Has anyone seen Adaptation? It reminded me of a Mobius strip, winding around on itself until you could not tell where the planning of the movie ended and the movie itself began. I thought it was interesting and very well done, but not as entertaining as I had hoped.

Yes, I am that pain of a person in the front row always sticking my hand up. If I were a Harry Potter character, I’d be Hermione.

I was apprehensive about seeing kids, but I am so thrilled that I still enjoy interacting with them. I worked hard changing careers, and I don’t want to burn out early. A therapist I admire starts every new year with a personal goal of adding something different into her sessions. I hope I can do that as well.
