Hidden Heart

In the original, the heart was a lot harder to see. This one required quite a bit of post processing in GIMP.

Today's Gratitude Item: That it is easy to 'dob students in' for using FaceBook if they are under age. Some of my 7th graders are not too bright and one of them sent me a friend request. I checked her age and then reported her profile. As teachers we are not allowed to 'friend' our students for very good reasons (aside from the fact that it is creepy, it is not safe and things could go badly wrong all round).

Today's Gratitude Item: One of my seventh grade Math students emailed asking for help with a homework question. She is the first one to actually do what I asked (ie: "if you are stuck, take a screenshot and email me asking for help"). I made a super quick video and got a lovely 'thank you' email shortly after.

Scarf Fall

This one is related to 'topographical waves' - it's good when making slight changes results in interesting differences.

Today's Gratitude Item: Figuring out how to turn off notifications from a particularly sneaky website that I inadvertently enabled late on Friday.

Disc Disturbance

The 'spin' variation is quite limited but in this case, it did the trick.

Today's Gratitude Item: One of my students solved a very tricky python problem and shared the 'fix' with me (and the class). That saved me days of frustrating effort :)

Modern Tile

This one is simple but good. Does that make it 'simply good'?

Today's Gratitude Item: Finding an add-on that lets me convert footnotes in a google document to end notes (needed for my Uni assignment).
