Today is my 21st birthday!! I am an executive board member for the Illinois Education Association Student Program. I am going o a casino tonight. It’s going to be a great day!!!! :)
So I have to give a speech in front of 300 people today. Needless to say, I am freaking out.
I do not want to go back to Western. I want to stay in Burlington for forever. Everything works here. Everything makes sense here. Too bad reality bites.
Lets talk about how my ex boyfriend is moving 40 minutes away from me as we speak. Lets talk about how amazing that is. And how great it is to have my best friend back, even if we aren’t dating. Lets talk about how I’m headed there tonight. For an entire day. Lets talk. Lets talk. Lets talk.
It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you Everything I do I tell you all the time Heaven is a place on earth with you Tell me all the things you want to do I heard that you like the bad girls Honey, is that true? It’s better than I ever even knew They say that the world was built for two Only worth living if somebody is loving you Baby now you do
Today was a surprisingly great day. I could get used to having good days.
On nights like these I just want to cuddle up in...
Expectation: Reality: Wanna LAUGH OUT LOUD?! Follow this blog. heh.
Normal person: Can you please stop talking about the Hunger Games?!
Me: I'm sorry, I just can't afford to think like that.
On Friday, I am running for a IEA-SP (Illinois Education Association- Student Program) state board position called Community Outreach Coordinator!! I have some HEAVY competition, and I need some creative and easy campaigning things/slogans/anything to really stick in people’s minds! PLEASE give any suggestions you may have! Anything?
I am literally speechless at how amazing that movie was. It was everything I could have ever hoped for in a movie based on that book. Just, wow. The rest of my night? Absolutely awful. I feel like I’m living a dream right now, like this can’t actually be happening. I never ever thought I would see the day that this would all be happening. I would give anything, literally anything,...
Off to the library for a day of homework! Then hopefully some brunch in the Thompson cafeteria. It’s been far too long since I’ve been there! hah I can’t wait for tonight. Friends, hookah, relaxing. Yes please Well deserved day!
I need new music!
I’m looking for more softer, acoustic style music to add to my library. It has been a while since I got something new. Please and thank you! :) What are your suggestions? Artist and albums?
My favorite thing about my roommate being gone is being able to freely be naked when I want to. Is that really too much to ask? Too much information? Probably.
Math session on Common Core Standards (merh) Hanging out Homework Relay for Life barcrawl I really want to be excited about today, but I just really want to lay in my bed all night. booo
Watching The Shawshank Redemption. This movie is up there in my favorites.I love having my room to myself. Just wish I had a cuddle buddy. Any takers? haha
Up early and…. teaching today! I can’t wait to see my kids, it has been two weeks!! The highlight of my week is always, ALWAYS seeing them.
This loneliness is killing me. And drinking on a Wednesday? alone? really krissi? I need a life adjustment, and quick.
The man that I named The Giver passed along to the boy knowledge, history,...– Newbery Medal Acceptance Speech, 1994 Happy Birthday, Lois Lowry! (via outofprintclothing) This is beautiful.
The most uncomfortable situation I have encountered is being so ridiculously close to someone who is roommates and best friends with your ex boyfriend.
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about...
I did this activity for a SEL learning experience once.
Some of the best teaching advice I ever got.
aussieteacher: Your students will never remember exactly what it was you taught them, even if they do retain the skill/ability. They won’t remember they learned how to use addition in that great lesson, or that it was you who taught them to spell ‘because’. What they will remember, however, is exactly how you made themfeel. I try to teach with this in mind. :) Love this.
So I drink a half a pot of coffee at 10 so I can stay up and do my homework…. ….and I end up staying up all night and talking to my ex boyfriend. Wait, what?
I hate being home, even for a few days, because I cannot stand my parents fighting. My dad and I can’t even have a civil conversation, and he manages to piss me off constantly for the stupid, rude, and bitchy things he says. I don’t know how I’m going to survive another summer here. It’s not GOOD for me to be here.
theerex-t: trailer for the upcoming documentary “Bully”, which will release on March 30th. I need to see this. I cried just watching the trailer.
Worst feeling in the world is knowing you are failing tests, not getting projects done, and feeling like a complete failure; yet not even have the ability to get yourself to care or to motivate yourself anymore. I have been in such a funk since Ben and I broke up, and even before then when things started to suck. I am in such a weird point in my life, and it happened to come to a point during...
Reblog this if you are literally suprised when...
I did SO well without him yesterday. I was genuinely happy for the first time. I smiled, I danced, I hung out with my friends. I had the best day I’ve had in a while. …… Until I came home, and was completely alone. I am still not even remotely okay with being alone. I feel like a failure. I need to somehow make myself see that I’m not a horrible person for being...
