And now, for something completely different. Random things I have learned over the last couple of weeks:
One. Bringing up Star Wars in a fifth grade classroom is begging for the entire hour to be disrupted
Two. Waiting until 15 minutes before a class starts to read everything a historian has written about Constantine will not work out.
Three. A room full of Mormons talking about the death penalty will inevitably devolve into a discussion of whether God wants people to die.
Four. Showing YouTube videos in Spanish does not constitute a full lesson plan.
Five. Grading tests for twelve hours in one weekend leaves you brain dead.
Six. There is something in the water because a lot of people I know are having babies. Like, daily someone I know announces they are pregnant and someone else I know has a kid.
Seven. People seriously don't believe that I'm 26. Apparently I still look 21.
Eight. Jennifer Lawrence has the opposite problem; we thought she had to be at least 27 after seeing Silver Linings Playbook but she's only 22.
Nine. Spanish is easier to teach than US History.
Ten. Casey and I spend too much money. Hello, budget!
That's what I'm up to and/or thinking lately. Any thoughts?
