If you can read this, thank a teacher.

Time for the quarterly weeding of my Google Reader. Separating the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. I currently subscribe to 177 feeds, 53 of which are classified as higher education. My other reading weaknesses are anything on Social Networks, Workplace Issues, Leadership, and Psychology. Yeah, I know. TMI. I suffer from what Breanne over at the mbti blog would refer to as FOMO or Fear of Missing Out.

If you have a favorite blog or column that you follow and simply could not live without, will you share it with me? I’m looking for some new voices. What’s yours?

Resolutions for a New Year: Where will you go?

With the approach of a new year, messages of being proactive and creating resolutions challenge us to make ourselves over, try new things, and be an all-around better person in the next 365 days. As I reflect upon the dynamic students with whom I work and my wonderful network of professionals, I am certain that the next semester and entire year will be full of opportunity because of these people. I know they will keep inspiring me to be more and do better.

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.  ~Hal Borland

Where will your shoes take you in 2009?

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…  ~Dr. Seuss

Try these shoes if your year will require that you be more expeditious.
