I would like to start this post off by once again apologizing for my lack of posts.
My life has been well... hectic.
Between school life and personal life I feel like I do not have a spare second
(ok, I have a spare second but I'm going to waste that second on ME!)
Honestly, my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week just spilled over into a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month. REALLY looking forward to December.
It couldn't possibly be more hectic (emotional, stressful) than November... could it?
And now on to the main event. Dating a teacher.
You may have come across a blog post titled "Date a Girl Who Teaches"
Want my two-sense? Of course you do!
I must admit I am one of those teachers with a HUGE bag. It is just so convenient! But I DO NOT use it for every day use! It is too big for that! By every day use I mean anytime I'm not at school or carrying a bunch of work to another location to work on there. If I am shopping I'll bring a more manageable bag. Also, I don't carry glitter or wet naps in my bag.
Don't get me craft punchers for Christmas... I have no use for them. Get me flowers (on any day!), get me a storybook, even get me that really expensive gift because I am so worth it.... but skip the craft punchers.
I would love to have plans on a weeknight! BUT I like to be at home or relaxing somewhere near home by 9pm. I wake up early, I have a long commute to work, and sometimes I leave school with a pounding headache... I don't think a 9pm quiet time is too much to ask.
I'll admit it. I doubt I'm the life of any party. You will likely know I work with kids... not because I can't stop talking about them but because everyone I hang out with already knows this. You will not find me at the club after a hard week at work... I would much rather put my feet up and relax....
boy I'm beginning to sound old!
I must admit I like the last paragraph. Only because it speaks so highly of myself (and thousands of others)
"If you find a girl who teaches, keep her close. Her love is unconditional and she’s the most patient creature on earth. She’s a well-rounded lover and a guaranteed best friend for life."
Anywho, I guess SOMEONE didn't read this article. Why have I been having such a rotten time? That wonderful, talented, amazing boyfriend of mine? Yeah... he broke up with me.
But no one panic!
Life goes on and I will get back into blogging again very, very soon!
Want to know something else? I bought a condo! Huzzah!
Why I decided to deal with being single, get through report cards, do parent teacher conferences, and buy a place all in the same month is beyond me.
I'm sure December will be restful (in my new place!)
Also, there is a rebutal to the "Date a Girl who Teaches" post... called "Don't Date a Girl who Teaches"
Be sure to read the last line
Ok, just in case you missed it or aren't sure which last line I'm talking about...
I'll be sure to post something again before I move and don't have an internet connection.
Or I'll at least REALLY try to.
My students began working on their final science projects for our Habitats and Communities unit and they were SUPER into it.
