Happy news. Someone from Reddit shared this link with me. I have it bookmarked to show to students who are having a freak-out at what they’re doing in drop-in tutoring.

An update on Rachel Held Evans. According to Rachel’s husband Dan, they’re currently weaning her off her coma meds. Please keep praying for her.

Trappistines. I’m watching/listening to this as I type and it is fascinating.

School-related take. I was doing itineraries, memo reports, agendas, and minutes this week in Document Production and it was… interesting. It’s a hard class for me because I am incredibly nitpicky and every small mistake and accidental extra space knocks 10% off of my assignment grade. We still haven’t gotten our grades from Assignment 2, so we were all grasping at straws for Assignment 3, which was due tonight (Thursday night).

Prayer request. Please pray for my friend Sister Lucia, a Discalced Carmelite nun, as she makes her First Profession on May 13. Thanks!

Tutoring take. I’m still being run off my feet, but I’m liking it today because I get to help people with Excel, which is one of my favorite applications. I’m having students in the same class work in groups and help each other unless they’re taking a test, and it’s working out well.

Rend Collective. Here’s a new song from one of my favorite bands.
