Because there is more then one way to say the same thing.

This week we’re working w/I lose track of time!

Out loud; in your head; under your breath!

Hi! Welcome to English w/Katie. I’m Katie, Katie Adler, and it’s Video Monday. Time to begin our “Five Ways To Say It Week” because there is more than one way to say the same thing!

This week we’re working w/I lose track of time. I lose track of time! And that’s exactly what’s happening for me right now. I am so excited! I’m working on my A++ Conversation Preparation Course for Scaredy Cats, Shy Souls and Brave Hearts and I’m having so much fun!

Yesterday I was up until 4:30 am working on my website and marketing. I had a tough time. This website stuff sometimes is hard. But I lose track of time when I’m trying to figure something out and I couldn’t figure out how to put sidebars in here, but I did get the page finished. So you can come here   http://englishwithkatie.com/e-learning/  and you can sign up for the class. It’s 5 weeks.

I lose track of time preparing the course and running the course and everything about the course. Working on helping you become a great A++ conversationalist in English.

I lose track of time working on A++. I lose track of time reading. I lose track of time when I’m watching a movie. I lose track of time. When do you lose track of time?

Take care and have a good one and join me. Five weeks. A++ Conversation Preparation for Scaredy Cats, Shy Souls and Brave Hearts. Bye!

I lose track of time!

I lose track of time! I lose track of time! 

 

Take care and have a good one.  

Bye…

Sincerely,

Katie Adler

We continue Thursday/w A good philosophy to follow.

Example!

Live and let live.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Live+and+Let+Live

live

 A good philosophy to follow. Live and let live. I think this philosophy is growing. More people are reading about how to get along. Yes, reading about it. It takes studying to be open-minded. To be an adult is to see what the rules of your childhood were. To be an adult is to look at those rules and decide keep or don’t keep. A good philosophy to follow! Live and let live. Our parents were worried about us so they were strict. As we get older we can live and let live and live well! 

 A good philosophy to follow.

Gandhi

 

Good advice for good living. I’ll do it next week. I’ll do it when I retire. I’m too old to study that. I’m to young to find out about that. Good advice for good living. We don’t know how long we are going to live. We know that one day we will die. There are many deathbed stories of “I should have learned to play the piano.” “Why didn’t I visit Yakushima?” “I should have had a dog or cat.” Gandhi gives us good advice for good living. So what are you waiting for? Start living!

Good advice for good living.

Good advice for good living. Good advice for good living.

Have a good one!

This week we’re working w/Great words to live by.

Out loud; in your head; under your breath!

Hi! Welcome to English w/Katie. I’m Katie, Katie Adler, and it’s Video Monday. Time to begin our “Five Ways To Say It Week” because there is more than one way to say the same thing!

 
This week we’re working w/”Great words to live by.” “Great words to live by.” 

Yesterday I was reading the paper and I was struck by one of the articles. The article was about Koji Endo whose family has the Kai Corporation. And he wrote: “I was 33 years old when my father died of cancer, and I became president. A few months before, when my father and I were alone in his hospital room, he said to me: “Anbai yo yare. Just sit tight and keep your eyes open for about three years.”http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0002358884

You know, I was really struck by “just sit tight and keep your eyes open for about three years.” Three years is a long time, but you know, really, those are great words to live by. Sit tight and watch and take your time. You don’t have to hurry. I love that! Great words to live by. This week we’re working with  “Great words to live by.” 

Great words to live by.

Great words to live by. Great words to live by.

 

Take care and have a good one.
