Earth Cycles by Sarrita King. Used with permission. So today is the first day of our annual faculty retreat. That means that my sabbatical and summer are officially over. Very thankful for this break and anxious for what life will be like when I return to the classroom. I’m going to jot a few things down here, in no particular order, and return to expand upon it later. Twitter I created a Twitter account in February of 2017 to scrape the tweets of a certain someone that rose to prominence around that time.
