Rock Band 2

Remember that Guilty Pleasure post I posted not too long ago? Well, seems like the Man Beast has done it again. We are now the proud owners of Rock Band 2. Cool songs - that goes without saying.

Some improvements:

  • Quieter Drums
Anyone who has the original RB, knows that loud drums were a huge turn off of the original peripherals. Rest assured, the new drums are much quieter. Another bonus: metal reinforced foot pedal!
  • No-Fail Option
Okay, this is just the coolest feature evah! Imagine, playing RB2 as a family and even your littlest one (who happens to fail out - frequently) is able to play a whole set -- all because of a neat-o feature you can enable that makes failing impossible (I do believe I created a post eons ago about fulfilling your wildest dreams if failure (or failing, rather) were not an option.)
  • Carry Over Songs
So, you worked your tail off unlocking all of the songs off RB, and even spent some hard earned money buying some songs (downloadable content - DC). You hesitate to buy RB2 because you just don't want to lose all that hard work. Check it out - everything will transfer! (DC is free, the RB songs transfer with a $5 patch - worth it, especially if you really like the RB sound track).

Expensive? Yes. Totally useless? Yes. Fun? Absolutely!

Until next time...

Life as a Paraprofessional vs Life as a Teacher: Part 1

Life as a Paraprofessional vs. Life as a Teacher: Part 3

This is the third part to a 3-part series chronicling my take on the differences between a job as a paraprofessional and a job as a teacher. (View Part 1 here and Part 2 here.)

Let me preface this list by saying that I believe that paras and teachers have the potential to equally rock the education world. They can love and nurture students in a way that only an educator can. They can help students become great.

That said - there are some definite differences between paraprofessionals and teachers. This list is not to say one is better than the other. Rather this is meant as a tongue-in-cheek comparison of how I perceive the differences of a paraprofessional's job and a teacher's job. (And any teacher who has worked as a para or vice versa should be able to relate to my list.)

{Planners for the Rest of Us} 2016 Uncalendar End-of-Year-Review

It has been just about a year since I started using the Uncalendar my mother gifted me last year. I received another one this year (this time, from The Man Beast). I thought it would be an excellent time to update readers on my usage of the Uncalendar this past year - what worked and what didn't.

If you have fifteen minutes to spare, feel free to click on the link below in order to see the video version of this post.





The Uncalendar Lifestyles Pro is a three-ring binder undated planner that comes in red, blue, or black. I received the full-size version, but the company also provides a half-size version of both the Pro and the regular Lifestyles version. The Uncalendar website has pictures of their products as well as upclose screen shots of the pages. The company also provides a skills center meant to help Uncalendar users get the most out of their planner.

After watching just a handful of Uncalendar videos (seriously, there aren't a whole lot available - at least when you co…
