Remembering & lesson planning...

for those of you who know me and those of you who don't remember the titans is one of my FAVORITE movies ever.  i'm watching it on starzz family and planning my big lesson for tomorrow.  i have the second of four observations from dr. b and i'm sooo nervous.  the lesson i am doing is really cool but she's soooooo tough (well worth it but still tough) and well did i mention i'm nervous?

I need a J-O-B- B-A-D-

So i'll admit that last night after waiting (not so patiently) ALL day to find out about Teach for America and if i got an interview (i didn't..) i was sad. good news though... i got an interview with teach NOLA .

What is teach nola you ask? research get back to me & be excited for me.

i also signed up for two different job fairs in the G-Vegas & Clemson. the G-Vegas one is called Shining Star and well I'm a Shining Star so YEAH! The Clemson one has Cobb County, and some other schools I applied so I am hopefully going to get to meet them, get interviews, get jobs, and be happy happy.

so basically i'm happy.

this deserve it's own post b/c it's freaking hilarious and one of the many reasons liz and i are friends.

1.  Probably someplace that's very hot.

2.  Nothing is hiring. They all lie.

3.  Two parts to this question: A) Gyms try to "sell" you training packages, because they exist solely to make people feel bad about themselves AND go into debt.  And B)In fact, I have met you.  
4.  Don't take any shit from them.  You're the boss.

5.  No idea, but if you find an answer, tell me, too.

Love you!

Thank you for being such a great friend.... 

carbs are bad but i heart them anyway

I went to the nutrition on day 2 of gym week and learned that i am very self-aware of what i'm doing is wrong.  does that stop me? no, it should but it doesn't.  i won't stop until monday because I am poor and depressed and carbs make me happy.  

carbs are bad but i love them and apparently they don't love me because i have a large tushie.  i'm becoming self-aware and will be eating more whole grains and less carbs starting monday.   

i have finished two major job applications this week and i am getting nervous!  i did the teach for america one, and always teach nola.  if you know people then tell them to hire me! i want to teach and i want a job and i want to teach.  

okay that is all for now because jwood and i are liquid highway doing hwk.

Valentine's Day...

Happy belated Valentine's Day!!! 

I love Valentine's Day and this year was no different.  Mommy & Daddy gave me a fantastic present before they went to Boulder to visit the big brubba. I also had a fantastic Friday night Valentine's Day dinner that included flowers and candy every girls favorite.  Valentine's Day itself was spent in Columbia at Geofest.  Jealous? I definitely wouldn't be!  We went out to the corner mexican place for dinner and had a fantastic time being the third wheel to two of my new favorite people.  

Things are slowly getting back to normal and I am no longer sick hence the slack of posting.  I have been busy trying to get my you know what back together and trying to find a job.  Anyone want to hire me?

5 things...

1.  Where will I be in six months?

2.  Why do all the newspapers, magazines, internet say teaching is one of the few jobs hiring b/c it's not...

3.  Why do gyms try to "sell" you training packages? Really have you met me?

4.  How do I get control of my classroom?

5.  How do I lose this burnt out feeling?

Suggestions? Questions? Comments? This is what is running through my head right now and will be for the next few days.
