Well, I'm back from Chicago. I blogged about my trip on my teacher site, if you'd like to know who I saw at the conference. I have no idea how people make it in Chicago. Wow. . .that place is EXPENSIVE. I recently finished a book called, Nickel and Dimed (NOT) getting by in America, by Barbara Ehrenreich. If you have not read it, read it.
I'm a pretty friendly person, but this book made me extra conscious of being kind to others. Especially those in the service industry.
