Every grain counts

Someone in one of my Whatsapp groups shared this with us the other day. It was funnily creative:

It just got me wondering how in the world did the person have the time to count the shrimp. And since they did, if that was enough to stop someone from eating it.

Two weeks ago when my daughter turned 18, I thought I could reach out to my #PLN and ask them to share what life was like when they were 18. This could serve as useful advice to hand down to her - something that no one can take away from you as is often said. So here are the tweets some of my online colleagues kindly shared with me. By sharing them here, hopefully more and more people can benefit from this wisdom. How would you complete the sentence - #whenIwas18?

Inspire others

Lessons learned from sport:

Olympic judo gold medallist Rafaela Silva probably has a lot of people to thank for reaching her goal. One of them is Oympic bronze medallist in Athens, Flavio Canto. His determination to start a social project to help kids from poor areas of Rio turned out to be his best blow ever. He used his experience and local prestige to promote the project and attract much needed investment to keep it going. He did what we should always do - regardless of if we are teachers - we should help others go even further than us, help them reach higher heights with our experience as a valuable source of inspiration.

Something we love to hate

Vocaroo Voice Message

Rihanna and Ne-yo's musical collaboration reminded of the Americanism used to talk about a recurring annoyance: A PET PEEVE.

According to, the term is used to ironically refer to something or someone that always gets on our wrong side. No matter how hard we try to be patient or understanding, the situation or person is sure to drive us crazy.

The fact that it's ironic makes a little more sense now; after all, pets are usually not supposed to be annoying, right?

One of my pet peeves is when people don't get rid of their litter, especially when there is bin or waste basket nearby.

What's yours?
