Short n Quick

Well, hey there.  It sure has been a hot minute since I've done this!  Nearly ten days!  For some reason, it seems like a lot longer than that... Oh well!

Here goes:

In the last week and a half, I've been teaching, dancing, meeting new people, playing games, setting up my new apartment, started Insanity, touring the new 'hood, mourning over sad news, hugging my students incessantly, getting frustrated with them bunches, and having a great time doing it all. 

Seester came this past weekend and we got to hang out which was so nice.  I've missed her a tremendous amount and really wish we were closer to each other.  It seems that I will most definitely have to go to OK some time this coming summer.  :)  Love her.

Anywhos, that's really all that's been going on (and all I can really think of).  I'll post more laters.

Peace, love, & family time.

Happy Thoughts

Oy.  Guys.  It's the weekend and I have never been so thrilled for it.  Probably not "never," but definitely not this year.  This week kicked my butt, emotionally.  The kids are legitimately going crazy.  Insane.  Even the good ones.  I'm going to implement a class-wide rewards system, since individual ones seem to do nothing.  And I also got sick a bit, too!  Massively sore throat!  I'm still taking meds to make sure I kick it alllllll the way out.  Insh'Allah it will work.

Because this week was a biznatch, here are the little things that made me smile this week:
  • Christmas music
  • Love letters from students two days in a row
  • Bowling and winning!
  • Buying and decorating my Christmas tree
  • Wearing Grandma's necklace
  • Macklemore and the Good Husbands
  • A mattress pad
  • Buying a new couch
  • Helping friends out
  • Cold weather
  • Hugs and kisses from kids (hmm wonder how I got sick???)
  • Buying a ticket to Sri Lanka with one of my most favoritest people in the whole wide world!!!!!
I guess, in retrospect, it can't have been that awful of week, except that the majority of my time is spent with kids and they were really rude this week.  Next week, hopefully, they won't be.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Peace, love, & happy thoughts
