I had a new dream last night...not a literal dream...

1. open a b&b in Italy

2. go to law school

3. take over the world

4. invent something as genius as Build a Bear: hello the customer does it all on their own...pick it stuff it dress it buy it...like 30.00 a pop.

I was also a loser and bought my ipod a Coach case. I dont know what it is about designer labels that just screams rip off, but itches "i need" inside of me.

music: "Walk the Line" the soundtrack check it out...

I asked a student of mine what she wanted to be when she grew up..here is her answer:
"I want to be a post girl, it would be a fun job because you get a clipboard and a pen." Isabella, 5.

Oh the innocence of childhood! I love the things that come out of their mouths.

So really, it has been a long time! I keep think, hey I should update that thing, and yet I do not. Even though a lot has happened thus far.

Top ten things that has happened this past month:

10. I got an ipod mini in blue and I broke it already.

9. I began to housesit for some family friends who are visiting their Peace Corps daughter in Africa...their dog Mitizi is cute, but thinks she is a boy dog, she pees with one leg up and humps everything in sight.

8. The Seahawks are going to the Superbowl...I become and instant fair weather 12th fan.

7. I got a raise...its only 20 cents, but hey thats like a hundred extra dollars a month.

6. I realize I have no heath insurance just in time to switch to a better carrier...oh the perils of growing up.

5. I watched the best movie in the world "Walk the Line" without even knowing who Johnny Cash really was (other then the fact that he won a bunch of MTV awards a few years ago) and fall in love with the music, Jauquin Phonix and my future as a country music star... Ihave a strong inclining that Mrs. Reese Witherspoon will be taking the Oscar home this year.

4. Applied and interviewed for a ESL job in Japan. On the way to the interview, I got splashed by a bus...I seriously only thought that happened in movies.

3. Got past the first selection round for the job and am not waiting for my background check results...gee I hope I pass.

2. Started seeing this guy, realized he was way to much of a Conservative Christian for me and let it go.

1. Am currently at this moment trying to do my taxes...by myself!

Sometimes, life throws you a curveball.

And other times, that damn ball just hits you in the face.

With the new year brought on new delights...I call them pink eye...bronchitis and strep throat...wahooo!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In March golfinlooney and I donated clothes to the needy (11 points). Last Monday skye_dragone and I robbed a bank (-50 points). In October I ruled Canada as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). In July I put gum in lindseylou19's hair (-12 points). In April I helped cayleen hide a body (-173 points).

Overall, I've been nice (476 points). For Christmas I deserve a pony!

My time will come...right?

mood: crankycranky
music: Last Christmas by WHAM!

We had this weird work party tonight...and I came to the conclusion that my coworkers really have no idea who I am. And it makes me wonder, how much are you supposed to know about the people you spend the majority of your waking day with?

For instance, my boss goes to me..."I've always imagined you as this small town person"...uh hello? Anyone who knows an ounce about me can easily say 'uh...yeah right' to that. I love the small town feel, but good grief if I ever get stuck in one for extended periods of time....hello Pullman...oh yeah, and the fact that the first thing I tend to tell people is how much I want to move to a really big city.

Maybe she missed that memo.

Oh yeah...and she never did take over my class today...but we got our Christmas bonuses.

I think thats what sucks about being new. It takes forever to actually fit in. Like I think by the time I make it into the 'in' group I'll be ready to quit....which is another awakward situation...one woman who went on baby leave when I started working, has now decided to not come back...and another preschool teacher is leaving for three monthes to go back to school...the same time that I want to quit.


This whole past week has been weird. Pondering filled, but weird. I seem to be crying at everything...must be that week...however I find myself constantly wondering what in the who ha am I doing working at the Center? Seriously. I have no deisre to spend my life around children...other then my own. I didn't go to school for this, and I don't plan on staying so long...I just dont want to get stuck. Like they were talking about this one woman who stayed there for 18 years.

Good grief...cheers to her for willingness, but I'd be long gone...stuff like that scares me.

I fear living an ordinary life...I don't know exactly what that means, but I fear getting stuck in a job that puts me in a box...that I have to live a daily routine. Much like this one...every day is the same, except for how the kids are acting...but the schedule is the same.

Kinda tired of it.

Cheers to the blah life.

Oh it is good to be 23.

one of those days...again...

mood: distresseddistressed

So today, the kids made me cry...even worse...in front of them...even worse then that...it took forever for a second teacher to give me a composure moment.

That sucked...and I am so not a crier, but today apparently I am. They were being horrible to me and each other...kids were hitting each other, refusing to clean up, begging for more snack and yelling so loudly, we had admin come and quiet them down...and as I began to cry one of the boys goes..."Miss Michelle...can I show you how to do jumping jacks?"

I think its a build up of past days, nap time and the fact that I haven't eaten a meal since Sunday...I think my blood sugar was low. Oh yeah...and I work 8 hours without a break...is that illegal?

But Heather and Kim were great, Kim was like...please don't cry cause then I'll cry...and Heather offered to take over the class tomorrow.

Thank God...

And then after I came back in, one of the girls made me a picture and spelt my name....ms mshel...

It's okay though now...I went to work out...ate something (finally) and am about to watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith!

Go Brad.
