Back to School

First Day

Back to school mayhem! Sound the Alarms! Ring the bell! Call somebody and tell them "Here we go again".  But to be honest, it hasn't been that bad.  I would be lying if I said that I didn't rethink my decision to start teaching again as soon as I stepped foot into the endless number of meetings at the beginning of the year.  And by rethink I mean saying "what the hell were you thinking?" And shaking my head at myself. Anyone who has taught before knows that it can Trying-yea lets go with that word.  And I wasn't sure I was ready.  But I have jumped into it with even more spunk and tenacity than I did 7 years ago. (Wow, I'm old). 

I went into this thing saying that I was going to be 10 times better than I was the first go round, and I truly have lived up to my own expectations.  And yes, I'm surprised. I enjoy being in the classroom and I enjoy teaching the material. I love seeing that realization flash across their faces when they get it.  I can't say what it will be like after a few months, but I can say so far so good.  The principal even told me that she got an email from a parent over the weekend and she was raving about how much her daughter was enjoying my math class!! Whaaaaaa *feels like the woMAN* 

And I DO enjoy having a reason to get cute.  I haven't worn these cute little leopard shoes in like 7 months!  The picture right above was casual day so I got a chance to wear the new stone wash jeans I bought a while ago.  

Not to mention the fact that I've lost about 12 pounds in the past two weeks from all the moving.  Not bad, ma'am, not bad.  

And to put the cherry on top, we went to see TMNT on Saturday and I LOOOOVE IT!!! I made some new friends of course.  We yelled out COWABUNGA when the lights went down.  We thought it was funny, no one else did.  *Kanye shrug* I regret nothing.

And as you can see from the pics, I got my hair straightened for the first time in a year and a half.  I cut about an inch off to make room for health and all that good growth.  This Georgia humity is worthless though.  The guy did a good job, but it was nothing compared to the Dominican Blowout I got when I went home to NYC.  It's too "Fly in the wind".  I don't know how else to say that.  And he charged me 80 dollars because it was so thick. I didn't expect to have to give him my kidney for straight hair. No sir.  I wont be doing that again.  And if I do, it will be every 2 or 3 months.  Ain't nobody got time for THAT.  

Once the school year starts moving faster and I get my routine down (and more free time) I will start posting my recipes again.  Give me 2 weeks!
