Bearcat Brief

September 1, 2017

Notes from Niki

It's already September, are you kidding me??? I love this time of year, but my calendar is already filling up with fall events. Don't forget to take time for yourself. On airplanes during the safety instructions they always tell you to put your oxygen mask on first before helping others. That is a great analogy for anyone in a helping profession. If you stop breathing, you can't take care of anyone else. I came across this article the other day, and I'm going to try at least a few things on the list: 13 Ways to Take Care of Yourself Every Day. Enjoy the 3-day weekend!

Upcoming Events

Basketball Games

The girls have been working really hard at practice and games will be starting soon. There are several games where we still need someone to do the clock and/or book. I will give a brief tutorial on Thursday, September 14 as soon as I come in from bus duty for anyone who might want to learn. It pays $25 per night.
