I was expecting ghosts & supernatural feelings at Eastern State but instead you could feel the heaviness of the past as you walked through the cells. The eerie quiet & history permeates the walls. It was an amazing experience learning about this controversial experiment in the middle of a bustling city. Added bonus, got to follow one of the amazing guides on three different hands on tours. Marney (or Marnie - forgot to ask) was knowledgable and so much fun. Had to take a picture and give her a shout out. You hear that @easternstate? Keep her!
Also today we tackled the Mutter Museum (the human body is wicked) and had dinner at a Philly institution- Victor Cafe where we were serenaded with aria after aria.
***FRIDAY DEBATE*** Which goes first? Socks on before pants, or pants first… then socks?
NB: The point of Friday debates are to expand thinking so we can understand both sides of the coin. Therefore, as always, please be respectful of each other's comments. Dr Kat x
It’s Day 18 of the #31bookpics challenge (thanks to @howjessreads) - Thought-Provoking
The most recent thought-provoking book that I’ve read would have to be “13 Reasons Why.” It covers a lot of hard to discuss topics, but they are topics that need to be discussed. They are hard to digest, but you leave with a better understanding of what hardships these teens were dealing with and what could’ve been done to prevent them.
The tv series on Netflix is just as good, and does a great job at discussing these topics further and in more detail. “13 Reasons Why: Beyond the Reasons” is a great follow-up after finishing up season 2 that goes over what has happened and hard issues that were covered.
Who else has read this book/watched the series?
Karina's review: small foot was a really good movie that ended up being really fun and enjoyable. I think the music was a huge strength for this movie, it was catchy, fun, and really moving. My only problem with this film was that some of the humor fell flat and didnt really hit me as funny, as if they were trying to hard. There was great character development. We were able to get a really good grasp on what the characters stood for because we knes their background. I was able to build connections with a few of the characters, my favorite character would have to be fleem. Fleem, played by, Eli Henry, was the funniest character to me. Overall small foot was a really enjoyable movie that i feel like anyone with kids should see.
Rust Cohle [True Detective] // “I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody's nobody.”
Amazing turn out on Wednesday night with Bracken Ridge Mother Duck Childcare! It was so great to see so many educators making connections!!! This team has proven that collaboration can occur no matter what size your centre is!
A few pics from our London trip! We had a great time and it was a much needed break. To kill time after part one of Harry Potter, Steve took me to the M&M shop - I never knew there was such a place! I’m not particularly keen on M&Ms but it was surreal... however, something that struck a chord with me was, amongst this ridiculously excessive, indulgent shop, were people sleeping rough right outside hoping for any change that could be spared... all whilst shoppers inside stuffed bags full of sweets at silly prices. This was quite a common theme whilst in London and I realised that in Wiltshire, we’re in a bit of a bubble to this harsh reality. I just found it sad 😔 #london#touristday#chinatownlondon#libertyoflondon#mandmlondon#hamleys#harrypotterandthecursedchild#keepthesecrets#thoughtprovoking#greed#homeless#pensive
Day 18 of #31bookpics is Thought-Provoking.
Of course there's a metric ton of books that can go in this category, but I'm gonna go with my most recent thought-provoking book: A Spark of Light by @jodipicoult
I really have to encourage everyone who reads this book to also listen to @jenhatmaker 's interview with Jodi on her #forthelovepodcast as well.
And fair-warning: many of the *not wonderful* reviews I've read on this one talk about how they feel they are being preached to as readers. Well, I'm willing to bet that's because no matter which side of the life/choice debate you fall on, you'll feel like she represented the other side of that debate well. And that's because Jodi is a master.
Do you have big opinions about this book? Share them!
PS, if you need a bonus thought-provoking pick: The Hate U Give. Both of these are narrated by my very favorite @prospertunia Lady, I will listen to you read the phonebook.
Okay guys. I don’t really post about WOODHULL on my personal page bc you can just follow @woodhullpublichouse for that. BUT, I really don’t want my friends to miss out on this show tonight from 7-9pm with @joshmorningstar. Josh is from Baltimore & Nashville and all the roads between and beyond. On the road 275+ days a year and has toured with Shooter Jennings, Colter Wall, Chris Stapleton, Cody Jinks...I could go on for a while. The point is he’s coming to our little stage at WPH tonight and it’s going to be a killer show. Come hang! #blues#folk#country#thoughtprovoking#lyrics

Mood “Meryl Streep”: “I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”
Another country, another love affair. Set in France, England and India this coming-of-age novel also evokes (for me anyway) the landscape of that other country, the past. No great angst or surprises, but lots of conflicting social imperatives and uncertainty as the twenty-something protagonist/view point character negotiates her journey towards finding a purpose and place in the modern cross-cultural world. #goodreads#keeper#offmyshelf#easyreading#thoughtprovoking
