I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

As we go 'Twitter'ing...

Let's face it, I'm a pretty regular user of Blogger, Facebook, Pinterest, Feedly (R.I.P. Google Reader), Google Docs, and Evernote. And I regularly visit sites like TED, NPR, NYTimes, TJP, and other sites to stay up to date on what's happening in the world (and also in the worlds of education & my faith).

And I was fine with that.

Really.

But more and more, my friends started posting what the Pope tweeted on Facebook. And one of the priests at my parish started referencing Twitter a lot. And I kept noticing hashtags (e.g. #isitfridayyet). #everywhere.

So I finally joined the Twitter nation (@KFoyle), not because I necessarily have the desire to tweet my own thoughts but mostly to follow and engage with the tweets of others. However, if I do post, I will try not to be obnoxious, nor will I attempt to bore people with the mundane happenings of my life. (We'll just have to see where the tweeting spirit leads me...)

So, happy Monday, friends. We made it.

And here's a little Twitter humor/food for thought for your day:

- "On Twitter we get excited if someone follows us. In real life we get really scared and run away." ~Unknown

-"It's not just about consuming content, but sharing it, passing it on, and adding to it." - @ariannahuff

-“LinkedIn is for the people you know. Facebook is for the people you used to know. Twitter is for people you want to know” ~ Source unknown
