Interestings things to wonder about.

  • Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
  • Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
  • Why do fat chance and slim chance mean the same thing?
  • How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?
  • Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
  • No one is listening until you make a mistake.
  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Don't tell anyone.

I watched Greys Anatomy last night. Like I said, don't tell anyone. I've boycotted this show since it was put into the same time slot as Supernatural way back in the day. I watched last night because honestly, the previews looked amazing, and I can't help watch any episode of any show that deals with gunmen and people getting shot; those episodes always seem to be the most intense and interesting. Well, I wasn't let down last night either. I thought the episode was very intense, and it was a great finale. The only thing I would have changed was providing the audience with a cliffhanger. A season finale needs to leave you wanting more and wanting to watch that season premiere in the fall, and even though I was just a one-time watcher for the night, I wasn't left with that finale feeling. All of the "problems" in the episode were solved. Someone who was shot and was questionable to live, well, we knew whether they lived or died by the end. A good finale would have kept us wondering if they would survive or not. And the whole "I have one bullet left, who should I kill: you or me?" debate was answered as well. Again, that was a perfect opportunity to leave the viewers hanging since all we hear at one point is a gun shot, and we don't know who the gunman shot: himself or the doctor. However, next scene, we see the doctor talking to the police: hello! suspense and cliffhanger ruined!

Oh well, it was a well-done episode, and I'm glad I watched. I may or not not tune into the season premiere in the fall; I'll have to see what the preview looks like!

Graduation - poem

The end has finally come,
With a new beginning to try.
I’m venturing out into the world,
But this is not goodbye.

I made those special friends,
Ones who I’ll never forget.
Those four years flew on by,
But our friendship is not over yet.

The conversations we all had,
Always makes me smile.
Thinking of our times together,
Makes it all worthwhile.

We’re starting something new,
But I know we’ll all do well.
Look forward to the future,
And don’t look back and dwell.

Good luck to all those moving on,
Try your best to give it your all.
Rise up to each challenge you face,
No matter how big or how small.

Put a smile on your face,
And wear your cap with pride.
Have your head held high as you walk,
It's been a long and crazy ride.

And in the end, you can only thank,
Those special and close to you,
Your parents, your family, and your friends,
Just to name a few.

Now get ready for a new adventure,
Don't sit back and wait,
You made it, you did it, you succeeded in life,
It’s time to celebrate.

The end? Or the beginning?

And so the end is near, but the beginning is close by. Graduation is days away, and four years of college are finally coming to an end. Am I happy? Of course. Am I sad? Of course. Am I scared? Of course. I'm entering the real world as a baby. School has ended, and I going out to start the rest of my life. I'm praying and crossing my fingers a job comes my way after the summer ends. I'm nervous because the job search can be competitive, and I'm not sure I can push through; I'm going to try my best though. Teaching is going to be tough, but I'm ready for the challenge.

At the end of four years, what can I say? The hard work and labor that was put forth was exhausting but well worth it. I know I made my parents proud, and by walking across on the stage on Thursday, I'll make myself proud as well. There were so many times I didn't think I could do it or if I would be a good teacher, but in the end, I'm glad I stuck it out since I know I'll be successful. I love working with children, and I'm ready for that full-time experience. Bring on the real world I say!

Congratulations Class of 2010 - we finally did it! :)
