R is for Random
I have lots of R's for the ABC wednesday post. I, unlike others (ahem, MOM), will actually post it on Wednesday!
The first R is a ditty that keeps running through my head for the mathematical term : range
It is sung to the tune of 3 blind mice
Mean, median, mode
mean, median, mode
Mean is the one you add and divide
median is the one in the middle of the line
mode is the one you see most the time
Mean median mode.
I know! Lovely!
The second word would be rest or relaxation. I think too many people equal that with lazy. Just because my body does well with nine hours of sleep (sometimes more) doesn't mean I am lazy! Just because I choose not to fill my time with inane "have to do's" like vacuuming every day, doesn't mean I am lazy! Life is short, and although I sleep a lot of it, I also choose not to rush through the day feeling constricted by have to dos! I like to relax. Don't get me wrong- I love my job- if I could be in the classroom everyday (monday through friday) I would be thrilled. But I am equally thrilled at going home at five, putting my feet up, and reading a good book. Or spending a few hours in bed watching a movie. I am just not aggressive with my time- if you feel you need to be, go to it! If you feel you need to overwork yourself for the sake of title or money- that's your thing. I won't ask you to sit next to me and enjoy a margarita- so please don't expect me to wish to conquer the world in a day.
