Weekly Wonderings and Musings

When this momma gets some time to herself to unwind sometime between 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm, I like  to read the latest blog posts from the bloggers I follow, waste time on Pinterest, read a little news or a book, and La-dee-da on Facebook.

I thought it would be fun to share with you some of stuff I thought was interesting, neat, funny or weird!

I read this article about an 8 month pregnant woman who does crossfit weightlifting! OMG! That is totally scary and "Bad-A" at the same time!

A Utah football coach suspends the entire football team because of cyberbullying, skipping classes, and failing classes. I say well done! Kudos! Bravo! In order to be reinstated on the football team students need to attend study hall, no failing grades and complete a service project. He is also requiring students memorize the following quote, "Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast is not given to us. We have to build it, piece by piece — by thought, by choice, courage, and determination."

If you haven't taken the time to watch Jimmy Fallon and Justing Timberlake make flu of the #hashtag you totally should! It was hilarious #LOL #giggles #silly

I thought this picture was also ROFL worthy. I came across it on Pinterest. It makes me think of Penny from Big Bag Theory explaining this theory!!

History Nerd Alert....I watched the movie, "Iron Jawed Angels" for the first time this week in my US Government class. This was a great movie! HBO actually did a good job on this one. After completing the movie about women's suffrage with my student, I went on the Internet and wanted to read more about Alice Paul. She was an amazing woman. She and the suffragists who stood along side her made a definitive mark in our history. They endured being ignored, spit at, hit, arrested, mistreated by people in power and they even did  hunger strike!

Lastly, a friend on Facebook alerted me to a recent change in thrilled of psychology--extending adolescence to the age of 25! Holy cow. Why the change? So, now I'm only a couple years out of adolescence? No way. So with my curiosity peaked a searching the Internet new feed I did go. Come to find out, this is a change being made in Great Britian. Rick Moran, author of the article states, "The ostensible justification for this is cognitive studies showing that the brain is still developing past age 18 and into the 20's. There is also a question of hormonal development continuing as well." He goes on to say that "this could create a population of infantile young people." That statement seems a little like faulty thinking (slippery slope) to me.

Well dear reader, that about does it for this week's glance into my simple and sometimes significant wonderings and musings! Until next time.....
