Although I was a visitor in my own home in college, it feels weird being a guest in my own house now. It's probably because I know that barring any catastrophes, I definitely will never live in this house again. I'm sleeping in my old room and do everything else the same. It's just different. It's hard to explain. I'd rather stay at my old house than a hotel because this is free!

Driving Barefoot

While driving to the airport today, my feet were getting sweaty while wearing my flip flops. I decided to take them off for a bit and drive barefoot. It felt really weird. My mom has told me she doesn't feel like she has control of the car if she uses cruise control. I love cruise control. I didn't feel like I had control of the car when driving barefoot. I was so worried my shoe would get stuck on the pedal or something. Needless to say, I didn't drive barefoot for very long.

Spring Break

Today was my first weekday of spring break. Naturally it went by way too quickly. I'm going home to New York tomorrow night until Saturday. That too will fly by way too quickly. It will be nice to go home and visit friends for a few days. It won't be nice to deal with the cold weather. It's supposed to be around 80 all week here. In New York, it's supposed to be around 60. My friends are going to Myrtle Beach and I am not. That's depressing. Oh well, I'll be going to Myrtle Beach sometime this summer, hopefully...

Since I wasn't home to spend Easter with my family, I spent it with my friends. I made a ham and sweet potatoes for 8 people. There is enough leftovers for at least a week. It's better to have too much than too little. That's ok. We all had a ton of fun. I am lucky to have a group of friends that I have made in such a short amount of time.

Sweet Potaotes

Sweet potatoes are absolutely delicious. However, making mashed sweet potatoes are a pain! I bought 4 huge sweet potatoes to make for Freaster tomorrow. Freaster is what my group of friends are calling our friends Easter. Peeling the potatoes was a pain, cutting them into smaller pieces was very hard since the potatoes were so big, and cooking them in the microwave and then mashing them took a very long time. When all was said and done, it took me over two hours. I made a huge mess too, after spending an hour this morning cleaning my apartment. I then had to clean up my kitchen again. I hope my friends have a huge appetite tomorrow because I have enough sweet potatoes to feed a small army!

It's funny to think hear what a child's perception of a teacher is. They think we live at school. Whenever kids see us outside of school, they are shocked. Most kids don't realize that we like to have fun. Most of them don't think we get excited about vacations even more than they do. Well, let me reveal a little secret. We do know how to have fun and we get very excited about breaks. Unfortunately, the next 9 days will definitely fly by...

2 Hour Early Release!

Tomorrow was supposed to be a work day for teachers and not for kids. Now because of all of the snow days, the kids will be there tomorrow too. We found out this morning that we will get out two hours early. Why they waited until the last minute to decide this is beyond me, but whatever. Tomorrow is going to be a day where there is no learning going on anyway. I'm not sure why they even bothered making it a day with kids. Oh well, again, this is something way out of my control. All I know is that I can't wait for work to be over with tomorrow and then have the next week off!
