Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy
Saturday, March 03, 2007
I am a Latin Teacher. That automatically gives me a certain amount of nerderation. I accept that. I also find blogging interesting though I am only good enough on a computer to totally wreck it. I subscribe to Wired Magazine. More nerderation. And through them, I found a way to be even more nerdy. It's called lala.com. It's a website where you can "trade" your CDs. They send you envelopes like NetFlix. You list CDs you have that you want to trade and you browse for CDs that you want. I am completely enamored by this. I have listed a whole bunch of CDs that I have and have received CDs that I requested. It's awesome. Go to it. And tell them LatinTeacher sent you...
I grew up in Metairie, LA and lived in actual New Orleans for 12 years. The day that I turned 30, I moved to New Jersey and then to Easton, PA 4 years ago. As luck would have it, I was in New Orleans when Katrina approached and evacuated to Jackson, MS. Other than that, I am a Latin and history teacher at a small, independent school in NJ. I miss New Orleans a lot, think about it all the time, and try to go there whenever the work schedule allows.
