School has officially started again!

It's been nice having 2 days off because of Hurricane Irene, but it's back to business today! Getting up at 5:45 was a little hard, not gonna lie; I didn't miss that! The morning went well. We didn't have our Kindergartners since it was gradual release, and we won't have them this afternoon either so it won't be too bad.

Day 1 is almost done.

I didn't think finding the right hair color would be soooo annoying! I THOUGHT I found one, but after looking online, I saw a review that said it comes out really dark. The color I choose is Dark Red Copper Brown so it's already dark; I don't want it looking like black when I'm done.

Maybe I'll see if I can exchange it tomorrow? Ugh, I just wanna dye my hair!

Here I go again...

I'm thinking about dying my hair. I haven't done it in a couple years, and I kind of want a change.

I want a really dark auburn. I feel like my hair is lighter than it normally is, so I want something dark, but with a red tint.

Maybe I'll dye my hair, maybe I won't.

We'll see.

I started a Tumblr!!

It's about dang time! I've been trying to start a Tumblr for a couple weeks now, and the link never worked...but I emailed them, and they reset it so I'm good to go!

My Tumblr is going to be a "My Photos/My Questions" thing where I take one of my photos, and ask a simple question pertaining to the photo.

It's easy and fun...and off I go!!

Change is a funny thing. Sometimes you want it to happen, and sometimes it happens whether you want it or not.

This time, I want change.

I need something to change in my life. And I think I know what I want.

I want to get a tattoo. Hehe - baby steps. I've wanted one for a long time now, and I really think I should get one.

We'll see...

I really like this show. It's under-appreciated though, which is a total bummer because it's pretty good. The actors are decent (not George Clooney but still good). It stinks that it's on Friday night because I think that's the worst night for TV (I still catch it though! or tape it lol).

Tonight's episode was the summer finale, and apparently the show won't be on CBS anymore - why, I don't know. It might come back on ION? It's not canceled so it's coming back somewhere lol.

It was a great episode tonight. It revolved around my favorite character Spike. He left his dying father's side to help his team defuse a bomb. Sergio Di Zio (Spike) was spot-on tonight; he was perfect in the episode.

I can't wait for Flashpoint to come back...and it better come back! ;)

" step at a time."

"The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the step at a time."
- Joe Girard

I really like this quote, and it definitely applies to my life right now. I'm not really pursuing a teaching job at the moment; I like my job as a SAS Director. It's hard finding out my friends are getting teaching jobs, but how can I be mad? I'm not trying to get one myself right now, and I'm still confused as to if I even want to do it. I know once I become a teacher I'll love it. It's just right now I'm content where I am, and I don't want things to change. "Everything happens for a reason." I truly believe that quote, and if I'm meant to work for the Y another year, then so be it. I'll become a teacher when I'm ready. Like the quote says, to get success, you need to take it one step at a time so that's what I'm doing.

More funny sayings.

"Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling?"

"The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory."

"The road to success is always under construction."

"If you die in an elevator, be sure to push the Up button."

"I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places."

"Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says "If an emergency, notify:" I put "DOCTOR". What's my mother going to do?"

"Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut-up."

"How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?"

Some people are like Slinkies...not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs."

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?"

Some people say "If you can't beat them, join them". I say "If you can't beat them, beat them", because they will be expecting you to join them, so you will have the element of surprise."

Current favorite things.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 19

Day 19: a picture of you when you were little

I was stinkin' cute! :)

Apparently I had trouble getting the food in my mouth; I can say that is NOT a problem I have now hahaha ;)


I attempted to create a Tumblr for kicks and giggles, but it's not letting me even click the site. Every time I do, it comes up as search results instead of taking me to the Tumblr homepage.

I think it's a sign I shouldn't create a Tumblr account.

Maybe - haha ;)

n. Internal and external factors that stimulate desire and energy in people to be continually interested in and committed to a job, role, or subject, and to exert persistent effort in attaining a goal.

what's your motivation for what you want to accomplish?

maybe my motivation isn't enough.

maybe I need to strive for my goal just a little more.

story of my life.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 18

Day 18: a picture of your biggest insecurity

Of course my biggest insecurity is my body. Most girls aren't happy with the way they look, and yes, I'm one of them. Losing weight is hard, but it's sort of coming along.

I hope I can eventually feel good about the way I look.

We'll see.

Good Life.

"When you're happy like a fool,
Let it take you over.
When everything is out,
You gotta take it in.

Oh this has gotta be the good life.
This has gotta be the good life,
This could really be a good life, good life."

Good song. Good lyrics.
I want a really good life right now. Mine is just okie dokie.

30 Day Photo Challenge - Day 17

Day 17: a picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently
(okay, I may have let this project slip through the cracks. I'm back though!)

I guess the only thing (recently) that has impacted my life was becoming the director at a new camp this summer. I had never been a director of a camp before (only assistant director), but I learned a lot, and I had a great summer.

Camp ends in 2 days, and I have to say, overall, it was a fun summer! :)

I'm debating whether or not I should sell some of my photos on Etsy. I know a few people who use the site, but I don't know.

I'll see.


Searching for blogs.

I decided to click the "Next blog" tab at the top to see if I could find any cool or interesting blogs. It was pretty much a failure though. I found a lot of blogs that talked about religion and politics, which are two things I pretty much know nothing about.

Maybe I'll keep searching...maybe.

Question of the moving.

I'm going to create a new blog just for the "Question of the Day".

You can find it here.

Question of the Day - #17

#17 - What are you a "natural" at doing?

I would say I'm a natural at working/talking with kids. For some reason, I get along with them better than adults. I love working with kids (have been for 7 years), and it's just easier for me sometimes to talk with them.

Carrie had bridesmaids in her wedding who had kids, and I had fun playing and talking with them, and one of them told me I was great with her kids. It's just easy for me to talk to kids.
