What’s my number? ~ A #CLMOOC intro

#clmooc Here’s an invitation from Helen DeWaard to remix your life by the numbers. Another way to introduce yourself. Have fun!

I am ONE daughter, Daddy’s girl.
I am TWO brothers, one older and one younger; one tinkerer and coder, and one financeer and humor that will have you laughing in a moment.

I am SEVEN times six and a towel in the answer to life, the universe, and everything.
I am EIGHT chuckles ahead in our family chat.
I am NINE hours behind in weeding my garden.
I am TEN grandkids fortunate, all loving and caring and thoughtful and intelligent and talented and who believed Gramma when she said dragons were real, living in our river…

Your turn: Read and remix Helen DeWaard’s introduction:

  1. Wonderful way to look at the numbers in our lives! Poetically written and engaging. Love that this is one way students can create their introductions for a course or class. Not just about the numbers but what they mean, how they connect, what they say about us! Thanks for remixing and reciprocating with generosity! ~ Helen 🙂
