I asked two classes if intelligence is predeterminated. And no they were the super advanced students or AP Psyc kids. I wanted to see what people thought. The Yes people were supported their ideas and the no people supported their ideas. After the in class activity some different ideas shined through.

"(People) read (books,magazines, or etc.) to see who is right." The I think is the reader and at different times the writer. Also the right may be just looking for the news.

"(Intelligence is) not (just) what you know. It is want"

"As soon as you want something, you have an idea, the rest is up to you" See you all when your back visiting from freshman year of college just like the "07's" are.

I am not sure why but I never thought about how a room should look. As I walk inside a room I don't think why this person put a couch next to the window or it's color is dreadful. But colors do matter and I am looking for the best way to design a room at my house. If I know what colors do for me I can better decide what color things should be. If you think about your room, you will say it's your own universe at times. In this world of personalization we do personalize everything and at times it is too much. Is life about getting what you want or understand why you think the way you do?
I see myself trying to figure out why I do what I do. If the color green makes me at peace then should my diner room or the living room be green, or my car. So should I change if it makes me happy. What about the money? If I like to make the best out of what I have and understand why I drive a red dragon and not a Cadillac it comes done to satisfying want or need. If you want "ug" boots or a personalized ring tone on your new i-phone, you are missing why you even wanted them in the first place. You want it because you want and have the money. I hope if I ever have money I will still see the difference between want and need. This is why i haven't purchased all new furniture. I am living of what I need. Merry Christmas and happy Hanukkah.

Something that happens all the time

The following song has a message. It happens to me every week.

I want to travel to New Zealand.

Chris Angel Mind freak

I have found that in math class as in life when you define your variables, everything is easier to understand. Then I watched Chris Angel

I was watching Oprah and Cris Angel quoted Harry Houdini to articulate a point. Houdini said "If I can get out of a straight jacket then you can get out of poverty." This was at a time of poverty and hardship for our country. Magic like math can help you learn about yourself. If you can conquer your fears then anything is possible. Defining yourself and realizing your fears starts the beginning of living full lives.

There is no better feeling then overcoming your fears.

Class of their own

Some students rise to the occasion. Some have to fall to rise. Then there are some that say "Mr. Grasso I swang danced with Rachael."

And for those few who speak without thinking, they are the ones we need to pick up when they fall. It is like footprints in the sand.

Separate note
Great weekend is below.
