Good morning, friends.

Today I get to have my Media Arts students record video/audio with equipment I sourced from thrift shops. (The video planning was last week.)

I also get to sit in an "Office Hours" chat with other teachers in my position at other schools, followed by a training that is scheduled to end at 8pm.

Oh, and the grading window is open for Progress Reports, so I need to publish those.

Yesterday a student asked me how I got all these wonderful tools from thrift shops, so I shared that I bought them from the thrift shops' website.

They responded that was too much work.

Yes, going to multiple physical stores around the USA is much more work than going to a web site. You're right.

(I also go to "brick and mortar" stores. After all, not all thrift stores sell online.)
