How to Make It to the End of the School Year

Yesterday after school I earned my dumpster diver 101 merit badge as a senior and I went through the school’s trash looking for an unmarked photo cd that had been accidentally tossed. (They may doubt my sanity but they can’t doubt my love.)

After it was found I drove home quickly to take a hot bath. (I was reminded of a word I haven’t used in ages but we used often in the 1980′s “grody” – not…

WHUT

WHUT

That “oh shit” moment when you get an email from a student right before grades are due

Especially when it’s THAT student….

Oddly enough, it turned out to be a thank you email. WHUT.

Things I Love Right Now:

1. Sweet Frog (or any fro-yo): like eating ice cream, but no guilt afterwards.

2. Snowpiercer: I’ve talked about it before, GO see it when it comes out in theaters! I’m very passionate about my sci-fi. This one is right up there with Children of Men as my fav dystopian sci-fi. Really gritty. Stars the beautiful man who plays Captain America (I really don’t care what his name is…)

3. Liz Claiborne: everything from that line looks bomb on me.

4. The Nutribullet: yes I’m juicing. Yes, I love it. I promise that this won’t become a fitness/health blog though. I love pizza too much.

5. Kat Von D lipsticks: so pretty. I’m hooked

More Reasons I Love Teachers

Dozens, (I’m talking 50+) teachers in my mom’s district donated sick time to her to help extend her leave of absence.

A total of 3 extra months sick leave.

Without the sick leave, my mom would have had to pay $2000/month in Cobra payments to keep her insurance.

While recovering from a transplant.

While taking super expensive medications.

And not working.

I just have so many feelings tonight.

NEVER trust an adult who won’t apologize to a child

Wow. I’d never seen it put that way, but. Wow. That is a really good piece of advice.

I’m so close to finishing grades

But they’re not actually due until the 28th so…

I’m gonna go read my book.

All good teaching originates from the motive of generosity. To help others understand history, literature, mathematics or science is the ground upon which all learning stands. Fundamentally, education is the transmission of wisdom from one scholar to another.

We’re adults, but, like…adult cats. Someone should probably take care of us, but we can sort of make it on our own.

This is the best description of my life I’ve ever seen

Jeremy compares me to a cat All. The. TIME.

UMMM….basically.

Support Cliven Bundy! Let him steal government resources for 20 more years.

Cliven Bundy is a greedy, lazy TAKER and a tax dodging MOOCHER living off the government!
I thought conservatives hated that?!?

Ladies and gentlemen, this is what a “welfare queen” actually looks like.
