Mind Vomit

Sometimes you just have to have one of these.

Life has been crazy!  I started my field experience last Monday and holy cow am I scared for teaching next year.  I am in a 3rd grade classroom, and will be teaching at the same school next semester.  The teacher has been awesome and has been letting me teach a ton.  This is both good and bad.  Good because I could use all the experience I can get.  Bad because it is really stressful and I'm having to plan lessons (in math, eek!) on top of all the other stuff I have to do for my field experience.  I know it will all help me next year, and it is really opening my eyes as to what I'll be doing soon.  I just have to get through the next few weeks and then I will be done with my classes.  Woot!

This experience has made me realize how much work it is to be a teacher.  I am seriously wondering to myself, "What the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks am I getting myself into?"  I'm thinking you have to be certifiably insane to want to go into the education field.  From the outside it looks like daisies and cotton candy, all fun and happy and stress free.  WRONG!  It's the exact opposite.  I know once I teach for awhile I'll get the hang of it, and it'll become easier, but until then I am freaking out a little.

Teaching does have it's rewarding/funny moments. Like the boy in my class who always give the "Live Long and Prosper" sign whenever he raises his hand.  Or the notes from the students telling me I'm pretty and they love me and have good "stile" (style).

These are the little things that keep me going.  That and Diet Coke.

So peeps, go thank one of your teachers.  They worked hard for you.

Next on my mind vomit list: Am I the only person who hasn't seen The Hunger Games yet?!  I want to see it sooooooooo so so so soooo bad!  I was busy this weekend and didn't have a chance to go see it (seriously, where are my priotities!?)  I am going to see it this weekend, but I have to wait all the way until Saturday. . .  Until then, here are some images to get me through.

Also, I have been thinking, they need to make a diet chocolate.  Like diet soda.  There is a soda with zero calories (I know, I know, still just as bad for you), so they should have a chocolate with zero calories. So that way when I eat half a bag of some sort of chocolatey goodness, I won't feel so bad.  While they're at it, they should just invent a chocolate that burns calories while you eat it.  I don't think we should rule this out as a possibility.  I don't care what science says.  I hope to live in a day where I can consume a bag of chocolate and get thinner at the same time.

Last thing, Gotye's album "Making Mirrors" is pretty bomb.  I have currently been obsessed with "I Feel Better."  When you listen to it and you can't help but, well, feel better.

Listen to it.

Ok, that's all.

Week #13

Goal this week:  Instead of listing all the homework I have to do, I will just say Be Productive!

Let's Talk Face

Ok peeps, I need some skin care advice.

I've never had good skin.  It's not waaaaay terrible, but I've had my fair share of erupting volcanoes on my face.  I thought by the time I was 24, I would have stopped getting pimples, but alas, this is not the case.

Currently I am looking for a really good face wash/cream/mask/whatever other magical cream there may be out there that can clear out my pores.  So, any suggestions?

And because I like having pictures on my blog posts, here is a picture of my hair.  Because I'm not letting you guys see my face :)  It was a "hair on top of the head" kinda day.

For Spring Break I headed out to Arizona to spend some time with my family.  It was so good to go down there and spend some time with them.  The trip consisted of lots of good food, a trip to the Phoenix Art Museum, playing lots of Draw Something, quality time with my cousins, aunts, uncles and grandma, and 80 degree weather.

I miss my AZ family already!

Week #12

Well Hello!

I'm back from Arizona, and getting back on the grind.  In the grind?  To the grind?  I don't know, all I know is life is gonna get busy.

My goal this week:  Blog!  I haven't done a post in awhile, so that's the goal.

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Wednesday, March 14, 2012


I've been enjoying my spring break in Arizona.  So far, it's been awesome.  80 degree weather plus some really cool people equals a great spring break.

More later.  Until then, enjoy these palm trees.

Current Read

I finished 1984 on Saturday and was having a craving for Harry Potter so I decided to start the series again for my current read.  Oh, how I love Harry Potter.  Did you hear J.K. Rowling is coming out with another book?!  I am pretty excited for that.

Also, have you read 1984?  If you have, we should discuss.  Did you like the ending?  I want to talk to somebody about this!!

Week #10

This weeks goal:  Pretty much be Superwoman.  I don't think that's asking too much.

I am leaving for Arizona on Friday for Spring Break and I want to get all of my homework and field assignments done before then.

While doing this I also want to be hitting up the gym (which I did once last week, so fail).

It's gonna be a crazy-work hard-super busy-week but Friday I'll be on a plane to Arizona so it'll be totally worth it!

Last Week In Pictures

  • My I-Am-Sam-Green-Eggs-And-Ham socks.
  • Had to get my alternator and battery replaced in my car.  There goes $400.  There were actually some blessing that day though.  The car shop I took it to was closed, and the owner, Eddie, was so nice and even though I got there after it closed he still looked at my car and fixed it that night.  I'm definitely being looked out for because I don't know what I'd do without my car.
  • Meet George Costanza!!
  • Painted my fingernails.
  • During class my friend Kelsey came up with list of things to do if you are trying to weird out a date so they never ask you out again.  
  • Pizza Pie Cafe with Ashley.
  • Me sitting in my car waiting to walk into work.  Look how long my hair is getting peeps!
