Tuesday Tell-All

Tuesday Tell-All

*I feel like the only thing I’m ever going to have to write about anymore will be stuff about teaching. But that’s what my teaching blog is for. So I’ll do my best to think of other things going on in my life. Ummm….

*So Matt and I really never see each other. Take yesterday, for instance. I left at ten to 8 to go over to the middle school and by the time I came home around 3:30, Matt had already left for work. After work, he goes straight to his evening math class and then gets home around 9:15, at which point I’m pretty much getting ready for bed. This semester’s schedule is a beast, I tell ya.

*Did I ever put on here about how I’m pretty sure I failed the Math Praxis test I attempted a couple weeks ago? I didn’t even graduate in math, but I figured I went up to Calc IV, so I should have an easy enough time of it…WRONG. That test was insane. And I didn’t even finish the thing–after two hours, I only was able to legitimately attempt 38 out of 50 problems (and half of those 38 I’m sure I did incorrectly). Moral of the story is this: don’t drop $100 on a test unlessΒ you absolutely know you have a decent shot at passing it. However, I still haven’t gotten my scores back yet. If by some miracle I pass, y’all will be the first to know.

*Actually, you won’t be. Matt will. And then my mom. And then all of you πŸ™‚

*I have a new little “project” of sorts in honor of Valentine’s Day that I’m hoping to get started this week. I’ll be posting my idea on the blog shortly (as well as holding myself accountable on here so I’ll actually do it). I’m thinking of calling it, “No Skirting the Flirting.” But we’ll see. I really probably won’t call it that; I just was trying to think of something clever and funny. I’m pretty sure that title fails on both counts.

*This weather is really tampering with my marathon training. I know I already stated how much I hated running in the gym, but it looks like pretty soon, that might be my only option. Sigh.

*Doesn’t this soup just make you want to die and go to heaven already so you can eat it all day long? I think I might definitely have to try it out for Valentine’s Day. But now that I think about it, why wait? Life is too short to pass up on a good chocolate soup recipe. (By the way, if you want the recipe, check it out here).

*The new phrase around the middle school is “like a boss.” Although I’m not exactly sure how to use it in context, Matt and I have sure had a fun time trying.

*I haven’t started Matched yet (I’ve totally been slacking on the reading), but I have managed to keep up on The Bachelor, Biggest Loser, and Once Upon a Time. Kinda sad how that works. (P.S. I’m way more excited than I should be about getting to watch last night’s Bachelor episode on the Internet today. That’s one bad thing about not having t.v.–you have to wait until the next day to be able to watch any of the shows).

*All right, I probably should be using my prep hour (one of them, at least) more wisely. So to the faculty room for a Dr. Pepper it is… πŸ™‚
