PIANO MAN DAY
Billy Joel 1949
“Don’t be afraid of mistakes, because the only original thing we ever do is make mistakes,”
“You can be taught how to do something perfectly right, but only you can screw it up in your own inimitable way.”
*If you make a mistake today, you’re doing something right.
Prince Fielder 1984
Fielder’s workout is an exercise in which he swings a metal rod like a baseball bat into a punching bag over and over.
*This one may be tough to do. If you can’t find available punching bags to swing metal rods at, get to the batting cages and swing away.
John Brown 1800
“His soul goes marching on inside every American.”
*Imagine being so passionate about something that you would gladly give not only your life, but the lives of your sons as well. This passion from John Brown would cost him his life and a song about his body would go on to be a rallying cry for the Union. Who will your soul go marching on inside of?
JM Barrie 1860
“It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness.”
*The closer we get to the end of the school year, the more I like being a teacher. I need to take this advice into the beginning of next school year in August.
Glenda Jackson 1934 – watch Women in Love
*Watch Glenda Jackson win her first of two Oscars in Women in Love.
Rosario Dawson 1979 – coconut rice with pork chops
“Whether I crave fresh vegetables or foie gras, nothing makes me feel better than having something I really enjoy,”
Rosario eats three to five meals a day, depending on her schedule
“I’m great at salads because I love chopping things up,” “but I also enjoy making dishes like coconut rice with pork chops.”
“The stress you put yourself through for having a treat is probably a thousand times worse for you than the sugar you just had.”
*Eat 3 to 5 meals today. Have fresh vegetables, foie gras, a salad, and make this coconut rice with pork chops. If you want a glass of wine or dessert, no problem.
