kim said to give 6 things about myself so here goes....i'll do the shallow stuff first and then do serious stuff tomorrow.
1. i heart jim halpert (emily will understand)
2. i prefer pie to cake
3. if i had the money and no sense, i'd buy fantastic shoes all day long
4. i LOVE to sing in the car and shower but my upbringing means that i face forward at all times when singing
5. my room is ALWAYS the last thing to be cleaned; i fear i will be found dead with piles of junk and clothes stacked around me
6. i SOOOOOOO lick the beaters
My friend, Chris, and I went to architecture school together and then met up again working in the private sector. We have lunch together every couple of months. Invariably, if heís the one who asks, he has something he needs to discuss. Heís very much a person who talks through situations to figure out what heíll do. And the great thing is, you donít have to have any experience to help him out because all he really wants is an ear and a head nod/shake. Today, for instance, I helped him narrow down best man speech topics for a wedding heís in on Easter weekend. No experience necessary!
it's that time of year again in austin - sxsw! pasty people roaming the streets in 90 degree weather wearing black leather, you know who i'm talking about. anyway, my house has been sxsw-ed. it's my way of saying NOTHING has been picked up and put away. it's like i leave a trail of everything on the way to the bed after coming in from a 16 hour day. not good. BUT...i'm not as bad as some people.
driving through the bank i saw the worst. someone after stopping to do their transaction in the drive through, just put their orange soda cup on the concrete bollard by the transaction tube. how lazy and rude do you have to be to take your soda, that you don't want littering your car, and set it out like that? does that person realize that everyone had to stare at his stupid cup all day? so rude! and lazy!
i just experienced a first in life! i was stuck in an elevator for about 5 minutes. no flashes of light, no panic attacks. just a very loud buzzing sound. i was on the top of a 3 floor passenger elevator. hard to worry that much.
What I have learned from teaching the 3-4 year old class.
1. I love 3-4 year olds; they are funny without even trying
2. there is only so long they can color
3. there is only so long they can color without taking the wrapping off the crayons
4. going to the bathroom is more fun than class, or at least my class
5. never let 3-4 year olds go to the bathroom unsupervised even if youíre the only teacher
6. itís very embarrassing when someone brings a child back to your class that they've found making a break for the parking lot
