Thankful Thursday 6/19/2014

It's a short entry today since I'm not feeling well, but I want to thank Claire for giving me the opportunity four years ago to become a tutor/mentor. As I applied at Huntington Learning Center for the summer last night and start my CV (which I have to figure out what the difference between a CV and resume is), I remembered the great times and experiences we had that summer as I taught creative writing. Thank you for being patient with me, Claire. It is through you that I learned a little bit of how to teach writing, especially creative writing, to people and how it can shape ones future. When I feel better, I'm going to reflect on what it taught me and tailor a lesson plan for people of all ages for Huntington and Write A House.

  1. I'm glad that Claire helped you; I hope she sees your post!

    To be honest, I thought there was no difference between a CV and a resume except for a language variation. I'll have to look, too.

    I also hope you get better soon!

  2. Now I feel guilty for pushing off checking your blog and paying more attention to my precious Russian stuff orz (Lenin is not better than this, by a long shot - not so much that his prose is not clear or well-written, as that you can sense even more from his work than from Hitler's that you're reading the words of an unpleasant man. And the logic is somewhat confusing - like he was writing all about the economic considerations of agriculturalists though particularly Soviet farmers did not have any capital to consider, nor the ability to produce much more than a pittance.)

    I've not been feeling well, either! Poor Yury got the brunt of my ululating about my ear. "Wondering why I've had an earache for 18 hours or so..."
    That must be why I haven't checked this until now - I have been feeling absolutely dreadful as of late.

    I think if there is a difference between a CV and resume then it's just trivial.

    1. That reminds me, I should re-read Mein Kampf! I have the book... although the last time I read it I only made it to page 200. I think it's an 1000 page book.

      Awww, I hope you feel better! I feel better now, so it might have been allergies. I seem to feel the worst at night, though. Ah, c'est la vie!

      Yeah, it doesn't seem like too much of a difference. I really hope Write a House contacts me.
