Happy Flapjack Friday!
I’ve decided to dedicate today’s FFF to my sweet son who graduates high school today. I’m not exactly sure why I’ve never been asked to give a graduation speech [go figure], but if I was, I think I’d simply read the following over and over, because it’s what most graduation speeches sound like. Not really, I’d write my own, but it seems like a good idea.I will interject, I don’t recommend quitting your job in every situation. I am someone’s mother, after all. But, for the most part, I agree with the rest.
This is taken from 10 Life Lessons from Calvin & Hobbes
I suppose it’s a snarky, but true feeling of kids who are bright enough to see beyond the test.
FFF quote for the classical music fans in the crowd: Put all your soul into it, play the way you feel! – Frederic Chopin
Warning, this is advanced music theory/scientific info that my son will understand. Feel no shame if you don’t:
The Solar System Set to Music: A Near-Perpetual Homage to Bach
Interesting article on raising children, especially geared to those of us who have artistic and/or academically high achievers:
Presence, Not Praise: How To Cultivate Healthy Relationship with Achievement
And last but not least, I’ll finish with a SHOUT OUT to my son, who managed to obtain a B in a college credit calculus class this semester. Way to go, Jam-i-o! You can now forget all the math you’ve ever learned, sans addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends, and congrats to all the grads!
