PwC 1 that’s still good! You could make good money writing books or even blogs! I used to write short stories on a blog, but I’m definitely not writer material. It can be hard! So if you can that’s just as good of a talent as anything else! 😊

You're right! I definitely need a hobby! You should keep your short stories going. We are our worst critics and others might find them fun to read.

That’s my other fear! Idk how some people do it. Also not sure if you’ve seen those posts on IG and FB for IT WORKS. Like those people claim to retire at 25 or 30, whatever, all from posting ads and making sales for that company. I’d use that as my last resort if it was sketchy AF haha

They weren’t good short stories or anything lol I get some interesting ideas and used my every day life to make a spin on them. But I think you should!! I know work can consume us sometimes, but having hobbies are just as important. It’s the only sanity we have haha

Hello. My district is currently remote (virtual) and I am teaching a chemical reactions unit. Usually, this is a hands on unit. I cannot do hands-on labs for equity reasons.

Anyone have suggestions on free simulations I can use? I teach synchronously to my students 2 classes (2 hours total ) each week.
