my third, yes i did say third senior year while writing my capstone project i started rewatching west wing to get myself motivated.  so tonight while working on some geography hwk i started rewatching it again and it makes everything better.  i never thought i'd say this but i may love this show more than i love 90210.  (don't beat me up people it's still right up and i will forever quote it!)  i want a president like bartlett, can't hollywood make a good one?  i also want to believe in the future of this country and its education and as a future teacher i can't say that i do.  i've always wanted to teach, yes every little kid plays teacher but to me it's what i wanted to do and after some sidetracking i'm back doing what i love.  while this is something i love, and want to do i can't say that about some of my fellow teachers.  i remember discussing what i wanted to do with some of my mothers friends and them telling me to go to something else, they were teachers already.  what is this?  everyone who wants to be a teacher knows that it is one of the most important but underrated jobs out there. the pay sucks (even with a masters), the students are getting worse and worse, their parents want you to baby-sit them, the "politics" of teaching but at the end of the day there is hope.  you are teaching the future whether they are the future garbage man or future president you want them to know that you care for them and you want them to succeed.  i think the fact that i've had a hard time getting here not to mention i'm that kid that never really thought i would succeed and hello i'm somewhat kicking grad school butt (it's kicking back and sometimes winning..) 

i just want to say that you should thank a teacher, and that if you think i'm crazy for wanting to teach middle school (don't tell me until after i've been teaching for a few years please!) if you want to tell me i'm crazy for something else i've done which well isn't surprising you can do that!  

are you learning a new fact each day?  today's random fact of the day has to with the state capitol of south carolina.  there are statues on it of strom thurmond and ben "pitchfork" tillman both major racists.  my question is are we the only state that has an embarrassing past?

so i don't really sleep anymore. silly grad school! since i don't sleep i spend quite a bit of time overthinking projects, searching the web, and basically stalking people on facebook... he he!  i have also spent quite a bit of time watching the history channel and channel i which is investigation discovery.  (ryan you'd be soo proud) 
the reason i am discussing this is that i have realized that teaching is definitely what i want to do. i love learning new things, and all this history is very very interesting so i'm restating my you should learn something new every day!  random day of the fact today is about mr. t.boone pickens of holdenville, oklahoma.  that's right holdenville right near good ole seminole.  he's related to some founding fathers of south carolina, which i found to be very interesting because governor pickens was fiesty and very forward thinking kind of like mr.pickens.
also have i mentioned i'm an aunt?  parker is precious!!! everyone should make me an aunt.  ok maybe not everyone but i'm all for it! ha ha...

so apparently i'm tori spelling.  nat and jr have decided that after viewing dean and tori i remind them of ms. spelling.  a normal person would be insulted, but considering i love love love love 90210 i'm totally okay with this.  school is still school. it's been kicking my butt and then some, but apparently i'm kicking back! :) sooo pumped.  

today's random fact that i learned is that mr t.boone pickens of holdenville, oklahoma is related to some famous south carolinians of the past.

Hello all! 
  i'm sick of school and getting my learn on.  it's totally overrated!  although i am getting excited/nervous to be going into the schools in a few weeks. i will be spending the first part of my semester with an english teacher who teachers 7th and 8th grade.   let's just hope these kids aren't too much taller than me.  hello six inch heels! ha ha! 
  how is everyone's summer going? mine is going well. enjoying my last few weeks petsitting matzah and her not so lovely farting.  it's not so ladylike! she also hogs the bed and well hello that's my job. i'm the princess not her, i've definitely met my match. ha ha.

Summer School Part Deux

As I sit here in my geography class I realize how little i really know, which is annoying.  so my challenge to you friends and family is to learn ONE new thing a day.  If you want to share that one new thing you can.  
I have learned something about myself, and that is like my grandparents I have been bitten by the travel bug.  Sadly, I don't quite have the funds they do so my travel bug is being squashed by some "no more itchies!"  I also learned that South Carolina used to the whole Northern part of the United States, not the small little corner of dixie we are today.  That's my real fact of the day.  
I am still dog-sitting for the Kelmans' and while I love matzah (the dog) I'm ready to go home. I like being home, I'm a nerd what can I say?  
Also, on a happier note I'm waiting for Em to have Parker. I get to be an aunt!  I'm soo excited.  That's all for now!
