Showered with Love Update: I can’t tell you enough how much I love Williams-Sonoma. The aromas that welcome you once inside their door are overpowering, but in a good way. Sometimes I do just go in to see what’s cooking, but then I end up picking something up that I contest that I can’t live without. Tonight’s trip was to find some hostess gifts, and here is what I took home with me:
Starting a new job is kind of like starting a new you – or at least that is what it feels like for me. Since my first day at Des Moines University on Monday I have set two new personal goals for myself.
1. Train for and run a 5k by the end of the year, and
2. Watch a TEDtalk each week.
Some of you might be asking “what is a TEDtalk?” Well, I will tell you. They are actually something that I was introduced to by a past flame. TED is a small nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas. They believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.
Below you will find the very first TEDtalk that I ever watched. Keep in mind that this was filmed in 2006 before the iPhone and iPad. When I saw this, it blew my mind.
Tomorrow’s to do: Find a new TEDtalk to watch and think about.
