Last year this time of year I went to a Technology conference called Interactive Connections. I’ve been following some of the tweets and the keynote speaker showed this video as his intro. I was just in AWE of some of the facts:

The one fact that really amazed me that it said todays learner will have 10-14 jobs by the time they are 38! Now it is unclear as to what types of jobs they are including in that description. I’m only 26 and I have only had about 5 jobs. And I’m not even a “job hopper.” Now that does include part-time jobs. But I have a friend from high school that gets bored and has had a TON of jobs. He told me he had 14 jobs before he turned 21. Maybe people like him are skewing the curve. But basically I think they are saying that people won’t work for the same company for 50 years nowadays like they did even 10 years ago.

This might sound dumb but did anyone ever notice that on TV people are always, “Going to the Market.” They are never going to the grocery store? I always find that strange. I’ve never lived anywhere when people told me they were going to the market. They always say I’m going Grocery Shopping or I’m going to the store. Please ignore these random facts from my brain.
Thanks to Pinterest I found this really cool website called Teachers Pay Teachers. It has a lot of really neat printables, powerpoints, handouts and worksheets on all topics. I tutor Math and found a really good one on Surface Area which is something I and EVERYONE I tutor always struggle with. There are even some religious printables. Some are free and some you have to pay but the most I have seen is about $5. From the looks of it anyone can join and anyone can upload files to share.
It’s tax time. Confession: I love tax time b/c I can always use the extra money I get in my tax return. I use an awesome program called TAXACT. It’s free and just asks you questions. I wrote about it earlier in the week here.
I cannot believe that LENT is less than 2 weeks away! I feel like we just finished Christmas. I ordered a Lent Mobile I found in a Catholic Catalog this week. It looks like the publishers are trying to compete with “Advent Calendar’s” as they are new for this year. It looks pretty neat. I also bought an activity book with eggs that I might use in some blog posts. I haven’t decided what to do yet and I guess I should since Lent is right around the corner…but I’m really excited for the Lenten Meal Plan I’ll be co-hosting again. It went over really well last year and hope it goes well this year as well. Be sure to grab the button if you decide to participate 🙂
To get you started go check out my Lent Foods Meal Board on Pinterest.
