Merry Happy List: 6

9:17 PM


STEPHEN BUYING ME A NEW CAMERA AS AN EARLY GRADUATION PRESENT!! and when I got to take pics with Had and the lighting was just so^^// when I had to teach my class how to fill out a bubble sheet because they had never seen or used one before  HAHA. // half-off sushi at Happy Sumo // enjoying said sushi with good friends // homemade sweet pork nachos // singing and dancing to newsies songs with my class and showing off the fact that I know almost every word to "Carrying the Banner" // buying plane tickets for my cousin's wedding in CA in may // teaching how to find the area of a trapezoid and actually understanding the formula for the first time in my life (because clearly that is oh-so-important and I've used it oh-so-many times in the "real world") // my cousin getting his mission call to Jakarta, Indonesia // when one of my students won a BIKE for submitting a drawing about eating breakfast // when 4 students went on a rant about how The Princess Bride is the best movie of all time // Miriam FINALLY deciding that she is COMING TO BYU in the fall!!! // when the weather was SO SO SO nice on Saturday that Stephen and I were those weird people who went over to the park to take a nap in the fresh air and sunshine // dressing up for EVERY spirit day last week in honor of Dr. Suess week (if you know me, you know I don't mess around with spirit days) // reading the book "Horton Hatches the Egg" to a class of third graders and having them ask me "are you an actor?" because I did the voices so well I'm sure ;) 

One of my friends is teaching her first grade class about plants and they were making a list of all the things that plants need to grow, so she was writing, "sunlight," "water," "dirt," etc on the board when one little boy shouts, "And they need FAITH too!!!"

Student 1: "Why don't you share a room with your brother?"
Student 2: "It's probably because we don't share a really strong bond." 

Student: "He was playing Churchball, which is basketball when you play with your ward." 

As is probably evident with the above list, school is pretty much consuming all my thoughts at the moment. It's a good thing I love it! I'm sure I say this all the time, but I honestly cannot believe how quickly this year is ending. And I still have so much I want to teach them!!!! Unfortunately, I still have ONE MORE assignment for BYU left and it is hanging over my head like the dark grey cloud of awfulness and gloom that it is. GAH. I just need to buckle down and do it and then SPRING BREAK!!! If I can just hold on until then, life will be a breeze. (Or at least that's what I tell myself. Every day.) But what am I doing here complaining in a HAPPY post?!?!?!?!? I apologize...I just want to be done already!!!!!

Who's with me?

PS sorry about the wacko font sizes. I messed up something with the coding when I was pretending like I knew what I was doing one day, and now my fonts are either wayyyy too big or wayyyy too small. I'm going with the "too big" option today just for fun.
PPS I would love nothing more than opportunities to procrastinate working on productive things  learn more about my new camera, so if you want to awkwardly pose for me while I take pictures I would love you forever!!!!
