skydive, originally uploaded by billaday.

Aaron and I went skydiving today. It was awesome, and not scary (even though I thought it would be).

Here's Aaron practicing they jump. There's a section of a fuselage in the background; we practiced on that. The trick is to keep your hips low, and your head and legs high.

Check out the video of me jumping here. It's cool.

rectangular prism

One of the great things about always having my camera with me is that I always have it with me. Here's a story about why that's good:

I have a really advanced student in my kinder class. I need to document what I am doing to differentiate his instruction. I asked him to draw a rectangular prism, and showed him a box of Mac & Cheese. This photo is what he did. Now, I have it on my computer, and I showed it to his dad, and another teacher.

Creative shot--not really. Important shot--definitely.

my favorite sticker

As though having President-elect Obama was not great enough...

I am teaching at Azusa Pacific University. Today I got my ID card and, more importantly, my parking pass. I get to park in the faculty spot now. C'mon.

I was afraid to get my hopes up for this election.

I could not be happier now.

brick wall full screen

Our school district has not given us a contract for 2 years now. So, we marched on Washington... er, the district office. I accidentally went to the wrong park (that we marched from), so I got to walk around a lot. I found this wall, and this light attached to the wall.

in case

Since I got my new MacBook Pro and Apogee Duet, I've been writing a lot more music. The Duet is so clean sounding--I really like the (lack of) tone when I plug my guitar into GarageBand. So, here's a guitar. I started a new tune today, and used this Les Paul Studio to record it.
