l'll start off with a book that, while I expected it to be great when I first heard of it back in 2012, I didn't expect it to change how I dealt with my students, my friends- even myself.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking
Reading Quiet, as trite as it sounds, changed my life. Not only where and how I write. It's changed the way I work. How I interact with those around me. There have been mistakes, of course. Things I wish I'd never written or said. But that's part of being human, after all. Learning from mistakes.
Introverts and extroverts both: do yourself a favor. Read. This. Book.
