The Year With Mrs. Whitlock

Mrs. Whitlock had a few favorite poems that she brainwashed us with. Here’s one:

If a task is once begun,

Never leave it ’til it’s done.

Be the labor

great or small,

do it well or not at all.

Now that I’m an adult (I won’t use the term “grown-up”) I understand what she was teaching us. Do it. Do a good job. Don’t be a slacker!

I shutter when I see the current generation of kids (which letter of the alphabet are we on? Generation Y?) who have no work ethic. Scary stuff.

I recently saw a young girl, swinging on a swing. As I got closer to her, I saw that she had an iPad on her lap, and an earphone connected to her ear!

These kids are so dependant on technology to do their math for them, their spelling (spellcheck) and even to remember friends’ phone numbers.
