Leadership or Being In Charge?

Do you want either?  There are many, many people who don’t really want anything to do with either.  That’s just fine, although it’s probably not an easy thing, to find roles today where you are told what to do constantly.  Most people don’t have time for workers who just do what they’re told, it’s too [...]

Spanish Homework

Homework has been the toughest part of class.  This week the homework is to describe two vacations I’ve taken in Spanish.
