December 28, 2009

Today, Amanda and I went for an afternoon hike in the snow at Schoepfle Gardens and the woods behind. It was snowing a lot, but we had fun. Here are some photos:

Day 246 – Shadow

September 3, 2009

Today was the second first day of classes (Hillsdale has two schedules…MWF and TTH). I have a lot of homework, so I am just posting a photo today.

Day 237 – Teacher for a Day

August 25, 2009

I got the chance to teach two classes today at the spur of the moment! I went to work this morning (at Amherst Steele High School), and found out the teacher that the district hired to teach two visual design courses quit the night before. Since it was the first day of school, there were two full classes of students who were without a teacher, and the classes started in a half-hour. The students were just going to have a long, boring study hall, so I volunteered to teach some basics of web design and photography to the two classes. I really enjoyed it, and I hope the students got something out of it. The rest of the day was hectic with lots of tech problems, but at least those 3 hours went well. Today was my last day of work. I am spending Wednesday packing, then I am going back to Hillsdale on Thursday.

Day 227 – Amanda’s Post

August 15, 2009

Hello everyone! As you have probably deduced from the title, this is not CAG posting, but his girlfriend. I would first like to apologize to Emily Fisher and all of Chuck’s other avid readers for posting after 12:00 AM. We just returned from swimming with Sean Nelson, Lydia Witte, Nick Bonominio, and Erica Gigliotti in Grandma Grimmett’s pool. We finished swimming about an hour ago and were sitting by the pool talking when Chuck realized that he would not return in time to update the “CAG Blag.” He had a few ideas in mind for tonight’s post but was concerned about sacrificing quality for immediacy and decided to allow me to post in his stead. I have been teasing Chuck for quite some time about letting me write a guest post, so I am excited to finally take my place amongst the prestigious ranks of Cag Blag Guest Posters.
