Oh, Valentine’s Day. The day when love is in the air, couples become closer, and we spend too much money on flowers that will die within a week.
However, this Valentine’s Day I have a new love in my life.
This love began so innocently, so subtly, and I was head over heels before I even knew it.
It began with a few meetings.
No big deal I thought, we’d get together a few times and go from there.
But once or twice was just not enough. The passion I begin to feel consumed me.
I began thinking about my new love day and night. Thinking of the things we would do together. Thinking of how we would work as a team.
Now, I meet my love almost every day, even on the weekends. My time at home is spent with my love as I plan for our future. We usually meet with the lights dimmed and spend some quiet time alone.
As time goes on, I want more and more. Sure, we’ve had our moments when we have not always gotten along, but isn’t that part of every relationship?
But like every relationship, things seem to get better the longer we’re together. I know what to expect, I know what will happen when I do certain things and I know how to get what I want.
Sure, maybe this relationship sounds a little one sided to you. But that’s OK. I am happy. And I know if my love can keep me happy then everything will be fine.
You see, it hasn’t even been a year yet, but I have fallen in love with Canvas.
I never dreamed at my age a new relationship could be so passionate, but I can’t imagine teaching without using Canvas.
My entire thought process has changed. Now I think about how I can better help my students understand my subject through using Canvas to enhance their learning experience.
And like any good relationship, it only gets better with time.
