lately i am trying to have more motivation. more motivation for a lot of things. i've been trying to run and work out more, work on my thesis more, cook more, pray more, serve more, and trying to figure out my life more. two nice little things have helped with that motivation (well, there have been lots but here are two i'm highlighting) first are these great alternative motivational posters. . .seriously its about time someone did something like this! my awesome friend hailey sent them my way this morning. i really love the integrity one. . .anyone want to go in on an order and split shipping?
second last night pack and i finally got around to watching our netflix that came last week and boy howdy was it a gem! it was this darling short little documentary called 'the hobart shakespeareans' and i'll admit i cried several time just because of the sheer beauty and humanity of one teacher who really gets it and really cares. it is pretty incredible. he has his 5th grade students in a rough neighborhood of LA put on a shakespeare play every year, and they've garnered the attentions of the likes of ian mckellen who said: "You can’t watch the little actors without wanting to cry. Why do you cry? I suppose it's happiness, really, and a regret that not all the children in the world could have a Rafe Esquith for a teacher."
