Farmer Frank – The French Resolution

DING DONG THE KING IS GONE! I know this is a pretty bad thing to wish on someone but hey, he deserved it. I could run the country better than him and that says a lot. Now that the King is dead my worrying is ALMOST over. That is because there is this thing called the Reign of Terror and that is also bringing some trouble back here at the farm. Once this terror stuff is over my worrying will be over and I’ll be able to live a happy life with my crops … and my wife. To be honest with you, the revolution for us was fighting with the bakers … looks like the King got most of the blame. Well, that is not really our fault, we did our part .. we did what we do best, Farm. And that is all anyone can really ask of us. To us, when this Reign thing is over it’ll be the last implication or event that declares the Revolution to be over. For most of the Revolution, we were safe … it is only until this Reign of Terror was introduced that kind of worried us. We hope to be remembered as the brave farmers who stood by their counrty and wanted to rule it all at the same time. Ignore those bakers who talk smack about us … they couldn’t do what we do if a shovel came and hit them right smack across the face. Yup I went there. All in all, it is so nice to see my wife smiling again … we can live a good life knowing that the worst of the worst is over and we can go back to loving our crops and suppling this counrty with all their food and being the base of the counrty. Cause remember y’all are nothin without us farmers in the picture.
Well I think I’ve said it all. It was nice filling you guys in on what us farmers go through in life and it’s time that you start showing some respect! k thanks :)

Just a farmer living his life one crop at a time

Farmer Frank – before the fall of the Monarchy

Howdy y’all! Me again, just a farmer living my life one crop at a time with my beloved wife. The fury continues to rage between us and the government. The lack of customers is becoming frustrating and these beautiful crops that we have worked hard on are going to waste by the minute. I mean just cause the King gets to eat whenever he wants doesn’t mean the rest of the country can. Without affordable prices, the people can’t buy food from the bakers which means the bakers won’t be able to buy food from us which means no money and no food. Like honestly we’ve had it up to here with the king! Just kill him already!!! As my wife says, it’ll make a great party … for the farmers at least. Most people want the king dead from what I hear. Other people think it’s a bad idea because apparently there is this revolution thing happening?? what ever that it is, it can’t be that bad right? Either way it should be the most excitement I’ve had in a long while. I mean pulling crops all day is really only fun after the first day, I’ve been doing this for 10 years.

Anyways, if this revolution thing is actually happening I say let’s fight! No one messes with my crops and family and gets away with it. My bet is that we are gonna kill this so called king and get our country back! Most importantly get our money back … I mean crops! It’s about time that us farmers take a stand and take back what’s ours. Anyways, I have to go … accidentally ran over my wife’s foot! Till next time!

Husband Farmer: #Farmerforlife

Hello all! I am a farmer, as my wife likes to call it low class I like to call it the towns base for food. My wife and I take our jobs very seriously and we work long and hard to farm our crops. You may think that being a farmer is easy, but let me tell you it’s tough. Being the good man that I am I try and let my wife take breaks so she doesn’t drain herself out. Not to mention the amount of complaining I have to deal with before I even let her for a break. Ugh women. Anyways, since the king thinks that everyone is made out of money he decides to raise the taxes on merchandise. Moreover, that puts us farmers in a pretty bad position considering we have to now raise our prices on the crops. By doing that, it limits the number of sales we get, making our pockets empty. It’s one thing to mess with the prices but it’s another thing to mess with a man’s crops. Long story short: my wife and I are furious. How do they expect us to make crops if we can’t even make a living? On top of the fury comes fright. Without food, comes some hangry people towards us. What if they burn our crops, or destroy our home or end our lives? This now becomes a matter of life and death. All I can say now is that us farmers stick together and we aren’t going down without a fight.

In-Depth Post #5

Holy smokes! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun; and that is all I have been having during this wonderful learning experience. I absolutely love boxing now and I am so happy that I decided to learn it. I continue to expand my knowledge about the sport and I continue to improve and grow as a boxer. It has also helped me with my physical strength and athleticism when I play other sports or do other activities. Boxing continues to get more challenging but it only makes me want to keep on going. Joel and I are connecting really well on a personal level and in the gym. Meeting with him is always a positive because I continue to learn about him as a person and I always receive feedback on my progress.

Last Tuesday I met up with Joel to talk about my progress and he told me that I continue to improve daily with my techniques such as punching, kicking, and dodging. He also mentioned that I struggle a little bit with the different types of kicks as I sometimes am not capable of doing a certain motion right away; however, he assured me that with more practice it will come more and more naturally. Joel also talked about how I’ve impressed him with how quickly I pick up on things and how I am very coachable and fun person to teach. This makes me very happy as I also enjoy his company and enjoy my time when being coached by him. When I think about when I first started to now, it is amazing how much things I have managed to accomplish in just 12 weeks. Many thanks to my mentor Joel for helping me and coaching me to become a better boxer and a better athlete.

 What kinds of learning opportunities does the mentor provide to expose you to new learning?

Joel does an excellent job with making sure I know all the techniques and checking if I understand how to perform the skill. Joel also uses videos and makes me watch some more experienced boxers while at the gym. This has helped me a lot because sometimes seeing it visually helps me understand it more clearly. When we get together he also watches the videos with me and pauses it to explain the moves being performed and the skills need to learn with them which also helps me understand the sport better in and out of the gym.

When you get together what do you talk about?

As I said before, when Joel and I get together we begin to talk about my progress, my positives, and my negatives. We will go over that and he will usually give me an example video of other boxers and we will watch it together and he will break it down for me so I understand it better. After we finish talking about boxing we usually take it to a more personal level and talk about our day and such. I definitely feel much more comfortable around him now and it is much easier to open up to him and talk about my personal life with him. As I mentioned before in earlier posts, I want to be able to know Joel and be able to talk to him about anything and I think that I am slowly reaching that goal.

What is going particularly well in your mentoring relationship right now?

I think something that is going particular well in my relationship with Joel is how much we actually have in common and how much we understand each other. For example, we were both student athletes, we both have a big passion for our sports, and we love to be physically active all the time as it helps us forget about everything happening and just get into the sport or activity. He has taught me so much and I am so grateful to have him work with me. I assure you that you will not be disappointed on In-depth night.

‘Till next time!

Thank you
