Hey gang! BOOT is rolling for anyone in my classes!
FIRST– to get a little feedback from everyone about what clubs people are interested here at school, a link to help us get the info on who wants what clubs… some of you have HORRIBLE handwriting!!! IT was too tough to read some of the names on the list!
NEXT– Today you’re working on some basics you’ll need to get working on the GRID. It’s very important that you READ AND WATCH THE VIDEOS. IF you don’t understand something- ask a friend who’s doing well- but don’t ask the same person more than two times… they have their own work to do!
THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IS JUST FOLLOW THEM ALONG. YOU NEED TO LEARN TO WORK ON YOUR OWN. THIS IS CRITICAL!
Make sure you’re reading, understanding, and watching the videos. If you don’t understand something- Ask Z or Top to help you- but they will ask what specifically you’re stuck on. If you say “I just don’t get it,” then we’ll tell you to go back to this beginning link and start over- and call us again when you don’t understand.
YOU CAN’T BE LAZY ON THE GRID! Today you’ll get email, a blog, and you’re already in the GAME! There’s lots to do- GET MOVING!
Now… GET ON THE GRID!!!
If you’re already signed up on the GRID, then GET YOUR PROCESSING FINISHED!!
Yesterday was a little bumpy as we figured out the glitches… but you guys did GREAT! Everyone is using the same instructions. THEY WORK.
BUT YOU HAVE TO READ THEM ALL AND WATCH THE VIDEOS!! BE SURE TO LEARN HOW TO WORK THIS WAY OR YOU’LL NEVER MAKE IT HERE! THIS IS HOW REAL LIFE WORKS!
It’s a lot of fun and I DO require that you think more than most teachers. You’ll learn more about that soon. You may not be used to this- but you’ll need to GET used to it- and QUICK! This is preparing you for real life!
I’ll be available online- email is a great way to get questions to me. That way I can tell who I have heard from and who I need to respond to.
Oh… and GO DO THE DOJO SIGNUP MISSION and then get back to the GRID!

Most of you are doing amazing. You’re trying hard. You’re reading the posts. You’re watching every video. That’s the way to succeed on the GRID! You’re trying hard, and that means you’re keeping our deal.
YOU HAVE AN A+!!!
Others of you are NOT trying hard at all. You’re not watching the videos. You’re not reading. You’re emailing me about questions answered in videos or on the pages. The reason this is happening is because you’re being a follower. You’re looking around at what people are doing, having to be told what to do. You aren’t doing anything yourself. Guess where the people you’re asking got the information you’re asking for???
In the videos and missions you’re not reading.
That simply won’t work. You can’t fail this class as long as you’re trying hard… but not reading the missions, not watching videos in the missions- that’s not trying hard. That’s not trying at all!
And that IS the only way to fail the class…

If you have NOT been reading the missions and watching every video- STOP THAT NOW. You’ve just stumbled around asking other people to show you what they’re doing- Put on your big boy/girl pants and START AT THE BEGINNING AGAIN. Read everything you missed.
For those of you following along, getting into the story and the missions, reading and watching and learning on your own like an adult… Keep it up! YOU are doing GREAT!

UPDATE 2 08.27.14
Here’s another mission to get you connected 24/7 to the GRID! Some bonus missions and extra credit come ONLY through PINGS! And some of them may be time sensitive- so if you don’t get the PING, you’ll miss out!
