Back of the Class

Today my anatomy class has been relocated to another room in the building.  The notification for the move came minutes before class should have started and was relayed by some saggy pan construction workers supporting each other on a ladder while working on the ceilings. Unfortunately for me the class was moved to a room located…

Running on E

I am out of printer ink yet again.  This seems like something small and insignificant, but it is amazing the halt that it can put on ones day.  I print on average 55 pages of PowerPoint presentations for my Anatomy and Physiology class each week.  This doesn’t include the must be typed homework or study…

An Open Letter to all Parents (and to be)…

Dear Parents and Future Parents, Please have enough sense and respect to not send your child to school when they have an illness or other annoying, pesky ailment like lice.  I understand that many of you work and “can’t afford” to keep your kids home from school, but some situations demand you to do so.…

Productive Days

I am sorry for the post that I removed late last week.  I was using this as an outlet to vent and felt that some of the comments received were a little to hard to hear so I removed it.   But on to today…. I have had a lot going on this past week.…

2” x 5”Confusions

When I moved to West Virginia I moved to a place with a better community, environment, and school.  It was important that the girls attended schools that were not poorly rated and struggling for academic success as a whole.  We found that here in their new school.  The girls are overall happier in class, coming…

Burning Hot Buffalos

There is no better way to put this, but to sum it up plainly – I have the case of the Mondays.  Usually Monday doesn’t bother me, but I have been on summer vacation the past 3 months.  On break we did not always plan our days, we would rise when the sun called us…

Color Fever

I am a sucker for all these items left over from the initial back to school rush!  It brings forth items that you might have missed your first, second or fifth time through.  It also allows the things that might not have been so awesome before have it’s day in the sun with it’s superior…

Sweat, Fall, Bullets

I am currently panting with drops of sweat running from my forehead onto my shoulders.  I tried to cool down with a walk after my intense 20 minute cardio/strength work out, but have yet to lower my heart rate or fountainesque qualities of my head. The back of my throat is reaching an uncomfortable dryness with…

Screaming Potlucks & Knockout Decisions

School’s out for summer! Everytime I hear this phrase I automatically burst into song and think of the 1996 horror cult classic Scream. I am not sure why this is my go to movie when so many others, arguably better movies, also feature this song. Either way the fact remains the same – School is out…

Sun Showers

My children are growing up in a generation that believes that rushing your child to learn as fast as they can is more important than exploring ones younger self and enjoying childhood.  Many children are raised through day cares, quickly moving into two year preschool programs and then onward to basic elementary school.  I understand…
