Baby Elephants and Boundaries

This is who I strive to be

This is my Spirit Animal

Who says I can do this?

I do.

I just really like the look on this little elephants face.  I don't know the gender of this creature, but I say-female.
I'm tired of people telling me what I must do about matters that are simply mine to control.  I know that I must do so many things, but there is some choice for me --  there are boundaries that I set.  I have to pay bills, do housework and  school work, exercise and eat healthy.  There are logical consequences if I don't do those things. However,  if I want to caper about like a joyful baby elephant or march in the 4th of July Parade with the Vilas County Democrats--I can.  If there are those who do not employ me, that barely know me, yet gossip about me and want to impose life-changing consequences on me and my family because I set my own boundaries--
Sorry you can't do that

It's quarter to nine-- and I think I might actually understand the null hypothesis

I'm still wracking my brain about type 1 and type 2 errors
This has been a day of Statistics.  Up until now it was just Average Length of Stay, Bed count, death and autopsy rates. Last week was standard deviation, variance and correlation.

Now I got Null Hypotheses,

t tests and more.

So I"m going to get something to drink-- watch mindless tv and try think about how it is going to snow tomorrow...

Life-- I still like it.

When no one likes you..... you have to pretend that everyone does.
Jesus does.
