Let there be no pumpkin at Starbucks until after Labor Day!

Starbucks Pumpkin and Cream cheese muffin

I went into a Starbucks this morning and they already had the pumpkin spice latte (PSL), pumpkin cream cold brew, and pumpkin cream cheese muffin. The muffin is pretty good, but I think there should be a rule like no wearing white pants or white shoes after Labor Day – no pumpkin at Starbucks until after Labor Day. Wouldn’t you agree?

Tried literally cutting and pasting

Printed and cut sections of my long syllabus, taped together

I was having such a hard time ordering the sections of my syllabus on the computer because I just couldn’t see the whole picture. I decided to do something I’ve never done before— print the document, use scissors to cut the sheets of paper into sections according to headings, move the sections around as seemed logical, and tape them together. I then took these sheets of paper back to the computer and cut and pasted the screen text into the order of the printed text. Even ordering the sections physically was agonizing for this indecisive perfectionist, but at least seeing them in real life I was able to see them all at once and organize them. Cutting and pasting on the computer was even more busy work, but at least I had a reference to help keep everything in line. Would I do it again? Probably.

I have been off-and-on with blogging over the years, but I’m really happy I turned my 10-year-old website into a blog in 2006 and have kept it up all these years. WordPress has definitely made it easier to publish new content on DanielGreene.com.
