No more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks (Alice Cooper)

School is out for a two week study break.

This is where teachers reconnect with the wider world.

As Seth Godin says in his recent post What did you learn on vacation?:

It always seemed like a silly question–school is for doing what you’re told, summer vacation was for discovering all the things that were worth caring about.

As adults though, regardless of our hemisphere, we’re always on vacation from school. No tests or diplomas, simply a huge array of choices.
Hurray!! An array of choices! I love that idea.

It always takes a few days to adjust (like rock stars coming back home after a tour) and there are so many choices it's a bit overwhelming for a start.

Mine started on Saturday with finally finishing Nicholas Nickleby (see Wozza's Place for more on this this week), watching some Netflix, playing Monopoly Deal with Jacky and listening to a few Blood Sweat and Tears' albums for a blog post.

All good choices I feel.

What's next?
