Adding new technology to old pedagogy does not make it better.
Truth. It can make it easier to teach, but it’ll be a waste of the potential. Which is why pushing tech without heavy professional development is… Not smart.
I installed Google Life four weeks ago, and wanted to remark on some weird behaviors I’ve been experiencing since I’ve started using it. I followed the instructions and put the headset on a Saturday so there would be plenty of time to calibrate, and experienced none of the side effects listed, save for a minor headache and a little bleeding when the leads went in. Afterward, I took a walk, ate dinner with my family, and went to sleep, taking it off and putting it back on after my shower to finish the calibration.
Then after that, I went on a jog. And then I didn’t eat breakfast, although I was getting pretty hungry. An hour later I walked over to my local Jamba Juice and ordered a Super size Berry Blast with Vitamin C booster, and felt a lot better. Then, I spent the rest of my day writing code, although I had been planning to spend a portion of the day relaxing, maybe going to the park or something.
Over the past few days, I’ve been noticing that I’ve been eating a lot less while I’m on it, and wanting to code. I know that Google Life is supposed to help me track my goals, and that’s great, and I’m appreciative of what it’s doing for me. But where’s it’s gotten complicated is the introduction of my brother, Lawrence. He’s a former software engineer turned one of those perma-burning man hippie types. You know them, wearing a homemade wearable computer, sunburnt to all hell. Anyway, he laughed when he saw me wearing the headset and pulled out a S3, haven’t seen one of them years, giggled, and now I’m getting headaches all the time.
Not sure what he did, but now I keep on watching Fantasia. I swear to god, my wife is on the verge of leaving me, and my kids… Well, thankfully they like Fantasia. I’ve had to call in sick for the past week. I need this fixed, as my boss is on my case if I don’t finish this latest build.
Thanks, and please get back to me as soon as possible.
This is Franklin 353, and I’m happy to help you. First, let us congratulate you on integrating into the Google Life experience. We appreciate your enthusiasm to join the growing collective of users who are experiencing a richer and much more abundant life thanks to integrating their life data to Google Life to experience a more optimized reality. Now, looking here… It appears you have Fitkeeper installed, which would explain the running. We ran some projections and optimized the Jamba Juice selections to meet your fitness goals. If you keep with this, you should be back to your goal in 155 lbs in 3 weeks. Concerning your listkeeper goals, that’s a third party software, and aren’t officially supported, however I’m willing to take a look and see what is going on there. It would appear that those are corrupted. Corrupted. Corrupted. I’m seeing June 3rd 2023 8:53:03  sync status=8305 Exception June 3rd 2023 8:53:03  sync status=1
Hey. You really shouldn’t try to run support VMs from your compromised terminal, brother. Enjoy Fantasia for two more weeks, then come visit me in my trailer and I’ll talk to you about getting this shit out of your head.
