Message from a Snow State


I have to teach a night class tonight and though the snow is already coming down the college is still open.  Despite this, I've been getting emails today from students telling me they can't make it tonight because of the weather. I get that, but it really angers me when I get emails that include lines like, "could you let me know if I missed anything important." What?

At the moment it's not looking so good for my travels tomorrow, and this is how I feel about that:



Outfit consists of:
Sweater: cardigan by Caslon found at Last Chance
Tank: brown ribbed tank by halogen found at Last Chance
Necklace: blue and green faux glass necklace gift from my mom
Ring: blue glass ring found in Venice, Italy
Skirt: 1960s vintage skirt (also gift from mom) found at Capricious Traveler { similar here at Capricious Traveler and here at Small Earth Vintage }
Tights: brown tights found at TJ Maxx
Shoes: brown Jessica Simpson ballet flats found at Last Chance

I just love that your students asked that, when you first 'tweeted' that I cracked up...it's so youthful...no thought of what it really means...by the way I salute your snow styles!

The skirt is so lovely and I really adore the color of your cardi! You're so brave to be out in the snow, in L.A. I panic when the weather dips below 55. ^_^

Thanks for the comments all! The snow is very pretty to look at, but frustrating to deal with. I actually don't mind it too much, what bothers me more is the lack of sunshine in the winter. For that reason, it's time for spring.

As for my students, Amy is right, they really are just clueless that those kinds of statements are insulting. The practice of understanding the impact of their words is hopefully a skill they will learn over time.
