feeling this this week. it's amazing the difference I see between two year olds and three year olds. two year olds who don't know the difference between boys and girls, who don't see gender as clothes, or colours, or toys, or sports, or games, or who they can be friends with, and three year olds who say "but pink is for girls" or "no only boys have trucks" .. im done with "having a boys look" "throw like a girl" "boys will be boys" lets take gender out of it and create kind, brave, creative, whole little humans, who don't see the difference but the remarkable, brilliant things that tie us together. #humankind πŸ’•πŸŒ #raiseboysandgirlsthesameway #teacherlife #teacherproblems #teachersfollowteachers #preschoolteacher #teachertribe #aussieteachertribe #preschoolteachers #preschool #aussieteachers #teaching

just so grateful for YOU, and this little community we are a part of. πŸ™ŒπŸŒπŸ’• thankyou for always building me up, for the reassurance, the encouragement, the kindness. thankyou for the safe space to be completely and utterly me.

" ..Truthfully, what happens is, as children grow up, we start to educate them progressively from the waist up. And then we focus on their heads. And slightly to one side.." #kenrobinson . true and devastating.
emotional intelligence & education, "life beyond school" skills, social development; these are the things that will matter in the end. #sheneedstosortoutherpriorities

uni classes are kicking my butt. im enjoying studying again, but i struggle with letting my beliefs and convictions take a back seat to theorists and readings. today I'll be writing letters, watching old csi episodes & preparing for the week.

this is an 100% accurate picture of what actually happens when you read caraval by @stephanie_garber βœ¨πŸŒŸπŸ™Œ i know i just told you to go and read #exitwest . but you guys. I totally nailed it with my latest "to read" pile. (the last time that happened was like 5 years ago!) i finished this in 2 days, because i could not put it down - and when I had to put it down i spent the day feeling like i was still wandering around still inside the book. I'm not a sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian girl.. but oohhhh the magic. all the magic. all the brilliant, mind bending, twisty magic. πŸ˜πŸŽ‰ PSA: the sequel isn't out until 2018 just fyi. πŸ˜­πŸ™ˆ

πŸ™ŒπŸ’• letter writing is in my blood; three generations of letters, 1946, 1984, 2017. each bundle a little window into everyday mundanities from another time; a time when the war had ended in england and people were making plans for the future again, a time when rent in sydney was $30 a week and it was uber cool to have just bought a 6 deck tape player.
so write them down, those little things, write them down and then share them, preserve them, all of them; relationships, hopes, big news, little news, plans, fears, all the everydayness. and maybe one day, someone will look back on your words, and see, just for a moment, a corner of the world through your eyes. πŸ’ŒπŸ’•

"Geography is destiny, respond the historians.." - mohsin hamid, #exitwest .

ive rewritten this post 4 times, but theres not enough space to properly articulate and give credit to all the things this book made me feel and wonder and think and question, all the things I've never considered, ideas I've never thought, questions I've never asked. so ill ask you to please pick up this book, read it and soak it all in.
If you need me ill be over here reading everything mohsin hamid has ever written πŸ™ŒπŸ’•πŸŒβœ¨
