    In general, however, I […]

  • Timo wrote a new post, Teaching Code, on the site Timo's Blog 8 months, 2 weeks ago

    After some deep thought, I’ve realized something that’s been missing in the way I’ve taught and looked at teaching programming. I’d like to share about it so I don’t forget and so that others can learn the same […]

    Check out this online service to get notified if you are implicated in any data breaches. I use it and I love it. Tell your friends about “Have I Been Pwned?”!

  • Timo wrote a new post, Sleep, on the site Timo's Blog 9 months, 1 week ago

    I’m excited to write this post because I’ve recently made a big step in overcoming something that I’ve struggled with for a few years.

    In the past, I sometimes got into a pattern where I stayed up late every […]

  • I love the play this game called Keep Talking and Nobody explodes. It’s super fun to practice communication and memorization. I’ve been playing it with a lot of friends.

    I highly recommend it as a fun […]

  • In the past few months I have been enjoying, thinking about, and watching countless videos of Hearthstone.

    I think the biggest reason I enjoy it is that I have been practicing explaining my ideas and working […]

  • This will be a series of posts. Today’s word is “value”!

    I value precise language and I feel excited about language that invites me to express useful communications. I’d like to tell you about some words I […]

  • I’d like to take this opportunity to list some of the things that have been in common throughout most of my schooldays.

    In the mornings, I walk Charlooks, say good morning to everybody, and do two spawns (one […]

    I’ve been doing 20 pushups almost every day. At first Art was joining me, now Ryan and Mel have been joining me. I’m glad to be doing them.

  • Timo wrote a new post, Gratitudes reflections, on the site Timo's Blog 1 year ago

    I’ve had an awareness about my participation in gratitudes for some time now: I tend not to share everything I want to.

    Here are a few reasons why I think that has happened:

    I take my turn as late as […]

  • Timo wrote a new post, Being, on the site Timo's Blog 1 year ago

    I’d like to share something I learned this past summer after going to camp.

    I was a camper for two weeks before being a CIT for one.
    After my last week as a camper, I received some acknowledgments that, while […]

  • Timo wrote a new post, My pooch, on the site Timo's Blog 1 year, 1 month ago

    I love my dog. His name is Charlie, but we affectionately call him ‘Charlooks’. We got him a few months ago.

    He’s super cute. It does take some time to do all his walks each day and it’s certainly worth it. […]

  • Timo wrote a new post, The word visible, on the site Timo's Blog 1 year, 4 months ago

    I love to use the word ‘visible’ to describe things. To me, when used metaphorically, it means something like ‘relatively easy to observe and comprehend’. When I typed in into my last blog post I wondered if there […]

  • Over the course of this year (and last year?) Mel, Ash, and I read a trilogy of books: Ancillary Justice, Ancillary Sword, and Ancillary Mercy. They were great fun! I love Breq and I love how actually looking at […]

  • Timo wrote a new post, End of the year, on the site Timo's Blog 1 year, 4 months ago

    Wow. When I wrote that last blog post I forgot that it was the last blogging time of the 2017-2018 school year. To me, that pretty much represents how this whole school year has felt to me. The weeks kept passing […]

  • Timo wrote a new post, Astrology, on the site Timo's Blog 1 year, 4 months ago

    Recently I learned more about the zodiac. I’ve had fun with it and I think it has its uses. I do wonder if I’ll experience a downside in expecting people to act like their sign and being biased in that way.

  • …is when somebody describes a tool as though it’s part of the person using it. For example, saying “I got tailgated by an irresponsible driver,” is referring to the cars as though they are the people driving […]

  • I recently got introduced to a game called Ultimate Chicken Horse. I had loads of fun and after the person who introduced it to me informed me that they didn’t like playing it with me, I got it for myself.
