Exciting News!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything...but I swear I wasn't being lazy! Well, some of the time was spent being lazy (but no more than my standard amount). I've been doing stuff for work, getting sick/getting better/getting sick again, spending time with my boyfriend (not to mention properly tying his tie for him), going to the gym this one time, discovering that season 4 of Toddlers and Tiaras is now available on Netflix instant streaming, aaaaand...finally getting around to creating a blog devoted to the things that my students say!

That's right, I finally remembered to set up a blog of student quotes. I'm trying to be really vigilant about updating it regularly. I need to post some new stuff today! The address is www.mystudentquotes.blogspot.com and I hope you check it out and enjoy it.

I always got lots of feedback when I would post Facebook statuses about things my students did or said, so compiling all of those things in one central location seemed logical. I've also got a bunch of the quotes my high school students said that I'll be periodically posting (maybe during the summer).

Naturally, I don't include any student names or other personal information; they're all called "kid 1" and "kid 2". I wish I could post some of the cute videos I have of some of the kindergarteners singing and dancing in class...but seeing as how I don't want to get fired, I won't do that.

I don't want to spend this entire post talking about another blog, so here are some random thoughts I've had of late:

  • Have you heard that Justin Beiber song called Beauty and the Beat? Well, I think that's what it's called. And I think that's how you spell his name. There's a line in it where he says, "We're gonna party like it's 3012," that was kind of smart of Beibs (by which I mean the person who writes his lyrics for him). Prince had that Party like it's 1999 song and it was pretty popular...until January 2000. Ol' JB has made this song applicable for a century. Well played, Justin.
  • No matter what your fitness goals may be, they should stop before you become the woman who makes loud sexual grunts while she's trying to lift weights at the gym. Nobody likes that lady.
  • I wonder if a situation will ever arise in which the fate of mankind depends on something like my ability to compare and contrast the contestants on Toddlers and Tiaras? I doubt it.
