Good LORD! It’s been so long since I’ve visited my blog and written anything that I don’t even recognize WordPress. Holy CRAP!
If you are a teacher, know one well, or live with one, you know that the first month or so of school are CRAZY! I haven’t had more than five hours of sleep per night for the last two weeks. There’s so much to do when you have a new class. To be honest, it’s just so much fun! I plan to elaborate in a later post.
First, I’m going to slap something up here that I wrote a week or so ago for a Monday Listicle. I never had a chance to post it or link up. To say I’m behind is kind of an understatement. Anyway, here goes!
Ten Ways I know I’m living in 2012—
- I have a crush on a metrasexual Olympic swimmer. It’s a Leap year and an Olympic year as well.
- I have to vote for the Presidential candidate I hate less this November. First, I have to listen to their shit-slingingly despicable commercials while I try to watch all my season premiers this fall. Sheldon will have to be exceptionally funny this year to off-set all the negative energy.
- If I had a smart phone, I could watch TV on it. Amazing. Instead, I’m too cheap to pay the $30 per month data package fee. Besides, I just bought reams of cardstock, approximately 20 crates for classroom book display, a ton of binders, hundreds of page protectors, markers, magnets, and an army of plants. Thus, I’m stuck playing Ms. Pac-Man and Asteroids on my dumb phone. Everyone else likes Kinect. I still like Atari.
- My four-year-old wants an iPad.
- My four-year-old asked me if I was going to upload some pictures onto Facebook.
- I have a Sam’s Club steel shelf unit in my pantry loaded with all my preserved goods, just in case the Mayans and the Doomsday Preppers on that dumb show are right.
- We make gas out of corn. That is so freakin’ cool to me.
- We are learning and advancing so quickly in our technology that the information our daughter learns this year in college will probably be obsolete by her senior year. Can we get a refund?
- I’m preparing fourth grade students for jobs that don’t even exist yet.
- Morgan Freeman just told me that everything in the future of the Universe might already exist. Through the Wormhole reminds me through each episode what a wild, wonderful world we live in.
I’m going to try to post weekly until I get my head above water. Have a great weekend, folks! Thanks for reading!
