27 DAYS!

I don't know if anyone has heard this before but.....apparently it takes 27 days to break a bad habit and/or form a good habit.  I  personally dropped three bad habits in the last 27 days.  Although I was tempted many times and at times it was tough due to social pressure....I DID IT!  Having the goal of 27 days helped quite a bit. #1 It was a short enough time frame "to see the light at the end of the tunnel" and #2. It was a long enough time frame "to break the physical habit".  I did a little research on it and found that some sites say it is 21 days and others scientific studies say it is 66 days. I have decided to try and continue losing my bad habits for a total of 66 days. I have also set some new "good" habit goals in the next 27 days.  I will let you know how it goes.

Small world

Cory, one of our online students returned from a trip to France over the Easter break. We hope to have some images from his travel experience posted here. In the meantime, stay tuned to the blogs inside the school class areas.
Travel throughout the world has been impacted by the volcanic eruption in Iceland over last week and now over Newfoundland this week. We are connected in more ways than are apparent on the surface. The eruption at Mt. St. Helen over a decade ago had far reaching impact across North America due to the volcanic ash. Events that take place far beyond borders are like ripples and waves on water. What sort of tsunami like impacts might we expect as a result of events both positive and negative in other regions of the planet?
