I am almost 40. Of course, if you ask my sisters they would group me in the 40s age group already even though I have a couple years to go. The point of the age is that I grew up in the 70s and 80s. I had the big hair, the dark eyeliner, and my wardrobe consisted of tight jeans and tshirts. If you haven’t guessed it, then I will fill you in: I was definitely a heavy metal gal.
Sometimes I am glad that I am as old as I am. For the past two weeks, the school I teach at has been SOL testing. I teach exceptional education reading classes, thus the majority of my students lack the skills necessary to pass the SOL tests. If you cannot read on reading level and your comprehension is a major issue, good luck. The “people behind the curtain” might not quite realize everything that is going on. Continue reading →
I am not an old lady although some of my students might disagree with me. When it comes to technology, I do feel a tad “old”. My students know so much more than myself when it comes to computers, social media, chatting sites, etc. If I am teaching and I have an issue with my computer, then my first go-to person is one of my students. They can usually give me a quick fix or if they cannot, then they can tell me what the problem is. There is one thing that I might know better than them though…
Just an hour ago, I was typing up a post about how I spent mother’s day weekend, but then my internet died. I took a black and white selfie and put my sad face on instagram complaining that now I have to write “old school”.

Today was a great day. I woke up thinking of only things that make me deliriously happy and decided that there is no use thinking negatively about life. There is no use thinking I miss friends of past and wish they were friends of present. There is no use. I decided to think positively because today is what I have. There is no more yesterday and tomorrow hasn’t happened yet. I only have today and I was determined to be positive about it. It was a good day. It is true…what you think of yourself is how you are.

I am feeling love today and that love is for Virginia. They do say “Virginia is for Lovers” after all. Some people that live in Virginia might be complaining recently. It has been warm one day and then the next, completely freezing with snow flurries. I, on the other hand, absolutely love it. There is nothing better to me than random weather. I get bored easily so I love a state with seasons, and crazy seasons it seems to be lately. Continue reading →
