Hey! Guess What??

I love teaching!  I'm so excited to learn that!  You know that was one of my goals before 30, right?  Woohoo!!  But I decided to wait until finals to declare it officially.  So this is my unofficial non-announcement non-declaration.  I love watching the little light bulbs of understanding go off in their heads.  I also think it's cool that Stace and I can be educational bookends!  She gets them in kindergarten, I get them junior and senior year of college.  Wheeeeee!!  I'm super busy between teaching, class and down time.  I'm not saying I won't be blogging but I really am thinking about it only in the realm of I guess I should do that... 

Oh yeah!  And I started personal training last Monday.  It's quite awesome!  I'm learning lots of exercises I will use to whip Rashan into shape!  TWOFER!  My proper eating is sporadic.  Have I ever mentioned how much I despise detoxes?  I find them ridiculous in their unrealisticness.  And why are there so many of them?  There's no PERMANENT quick, easy fix.  Sorry to be the one to break that to you. (No I'm not.)

You CANNOT stop blogging...we'll understand that you can't blog everyday, but don't try to stop blogging altogether like your love did :)

Oh and I'm so freaking excited for you and proud of you for teaching and LOVING it! Those students are lucky to have you

Yaaaay! I'm so happy that you have taken to teaching! You do seem like you would be a great professor being that like me you are a know it all who likes to tell people stuff! We are born educators! LOL!

That said, Oh come on please don't stop blogging...

SN: This was NOT a post to get y'all to beg me not to stop blogging! I promise! I can't imagine not blogging! I was just letting you know the deal if a few cobwebs gather on days other than Sunday & Monday!

Glad to hear that you love teaching! Some are born to teach. All the best of motivating those malleable young minds. Hey, blog when you can. No pressure.

Your alma mater (Hampton) is looking for lots of online instructors in all areas, if you hadn't heard - that is, in case you need a thousand more things to do.

I surely hope you are not going to stop blogging because I can see where things are can get pretty interesting. Yah, congrats *kisses on cheek*

Go

I have the upmost respect for teachers. I simply can't...well...don't want to do it! LOL! Props to you!

Jameil said...

NSA... I can't imagine not blogging! And for 4+ months? IDK what his deal is. And thanks! :)

Gp... me too! Did you just call me a know it all? :P

Adei... the flyest bookends in the world! The lightbulb is THEEEE best!

1969... *struts* LOL

Mrs.TDJ... so true! My mom and grandma both love teaching so it makes sense. I don't think NSA and GP subscribe to the no pressure theory. Lol. But thanks!

pserendipity... hmmm... I don't need a thousand things to do right now but I'll keep it in mind. Thanks!

Go... LOL. They are definitely about to get even more interesting. Thanks!

lady... I FEEL YOU. I have no desire to teach the youngest ones! Lol Thanks!

GorgeousPuddin said...

you called yourself a know it all on another post! LOL! :)

Jameil said...

GP... you made that up.

GorgeousPuddin said...

ME: 9. I'm completely irked by bad diction period! I have to constantly resist the urge to correct people so they won't hate me. LOL!

YOU: 9) it's such a mess! i used to constantly correct people. i was such a nuisance.

Okay so you didn't directly say you were a "no it all" per say, but this is classic "no it all" behavior. And the people I used to correct thought I was a "no it all". Which is why I stopped with the correcting LOL! But I can't wait to teach because you get paid to correct people which is what I meant.

Jameil said...

So different! Knowing enough about grammar to correct everyone's horrible errors on twitter & fb is hugely different from being a know-it-all! Stop being a hater!!

GorgeousPuddin said...

See now there is clarity. I didn't know this was on the internet. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! I was doing this to people in their faces! So I'm the "know it all" alone. I can accept that. No hate! It's all Lurve~

Jameil said...

Lololol. I do it to their faces, too, or I stop myself face to face usually but I prompt them when they're searching for words a lot. Bad.
