So somehow I manage not to get too sick this past semester while dealing with some very germy second graders and taking the bus home just about every day after school. Well to be fair I did have a staph infection and looking back even though very painful and disfiguring for a short while, it wasn't as bad as it could have been. But now that I am not constantly being introduced to new germs every single day, I catch the first cold I come into contact with....thanks to either my parents or my Nana....so now I think I have a sinus infection and a chest cold.....blah......I just hope Im able to kick it before next week.....granted Ill only have to teach one subject everyday, I'd still prefer to be healthy before being attacked by new diseases.

In other news, men are still confusing. Enough said.

Not really sure how things are with Bobby and I, I think we are ok after me telling him that he needed to look at the positive when it came to me instead of the negative.

Ok gonna go......

Of being alone......since the last major fight Bobby and I had things really havent been the same. Ive been trying to give him his space.....but I feel like all I ever do is give him his space. We dont go out just us, we dont spend alone time together. Sometimes I wonder if Im the only one invested, truly invested in making us work.....and if thats the case, I tired of it. Im so worn out from the fighting, and the effort, and everything.....I just want to quit. I want to find a hole and crawl into it, and wake up when some solution has been reached where I didnt have to put an effort into figuring it out. I want someone who is going to dote on me...and not find fault with everything I do, who is going to look for the good in me. Im my biggest critic, I dont need anyone else pointing out my flaws.Seriously, inorder to completely loosen up and have fun and be me, I had to get completely trashed last night, which is fine because its a rariety for that to occur.....but at the same time its not alright. I want to be cherished, and valued for me depression, attitude, moodiness, etc. The good with the bad. Not one of us taking off over night because we're so angry. I dunno, maybe Im still hungover, or for that matter still drunk....see this is why I dont typically drink because the next day I feel depressed all day and everything gets too me.....pms doesnt help either....but Im just tired of all of it....Im tired of being jerked around, Im tired of being used, Im tired of the double standards, Im tired! Just plain tired......Alrighty I am done ranting and raving.....tomorrow is my 24th birthday hopefully its a good day :-)

Just another update.....

So besides my little rant...there's lots to report... First off we got the car back, and they replaced the door handle that has been broken for almost 2 years! Secondly, still no word on my portfolio. Next, awhile back in level I of the Elementary Ed program I had to write a children story. Well I wrote it, got my grade, and gave it to my cousins daughter for her first birthday.....now at 2 1/2 it is her favorite story to have read to her! My cousin encouraged me to look into trying to get it published....and while running my mouth to another friend I found out that he had a contact at Random House Publishing.....so he's calling in a favor I guess and is going to try to get my story looked at!!!!So even though its not a guarantee that it'll be published, its def. a start and something I am super excited about! :-D

I'm also beyond annoyed with my family. I think my parents forgot how much they fought when I was little....I mean it was ridiculous! Ive been with Bobby for 4 years straight we've lived together for 3 years of course we're going to fight! Of course one of us is going to leave on occasion to cool off and the other will not want to talk about it with their family! I understand that Bobby and I aren't married but still if you love someone you stick it out whether there is a piece of paper there or not! Then my little sister trying to lecture me on my BAD choices.....seriously if she wants to go there Ill go there....my decisions have been no where near life threatening as hers were....and I told her that the decisions she was making werent wise and then I backed off....I didnt fight her, I never judged her, I never went crying to my parents because I didnt know how to handle the concern I felt.....no you dont want to listen thats fine, youll figure it out on your on. I mean seriously, my sister is concerned over hearsay, and one little bickering session that was forgotten before the day was even over with! Whatever...... I dont like drama....I try to keep my life as drama free as possible.....with an anxiety/depression disorder I mean I need to keep myself drama free and then I have friends who for whatever reason have to go run their mouths off and start shit....grrr....whatever....Im going to bed....just done with it....I feel alittle better now :-) Night!

P.S. Dawn, just let me know if you need me to watch the kiddies! Thank you for your encouragement!*hugs*

So I just realized......

That I need to use more discretion when talking to my friends....because evidently they think its alright to diverge information to my family if they ask. No things with Bobby and I havent been a bed of roses but you know what relationships arent a bed of roses and I understand that....it sucks while were fighting and I may say things out of anger that I dont mean but that doesnt mean you go repeating what I say and than when I ask what was said, you lieing to me about it.....I mean seriously.....seriously. Not cool. Thats definitely something I would not do to you. The only time I would go to your family is if I thought you were in serious danger. Such as you were going to harm yourself or others, or someone was going to physically harm you! Its a joke.....I keep trusting people and I keep getting burned.....Im sick of it.

Is out for now for me.....its been an interesting two weeks but long story short Bobby and I are trying to work stuff out and I am hopeful we will. The Elementary Ed proagram has me livid long story short I was told to correct one of my artifacts for my prinicple did exactly what was asked of me and then told oh no what the first reviewers told you was wrong and youll have to teach a whole new unit in January. Which wouldnt be too bad because I love my students but its reallying with other things that have occured with some of my classmates. Besides that I am taking life one day at a time, I am seeking counseling again for my anxiety attacks and I am hoping to see the psychatrist on campus to have my medicine changed since Ive been on it for 4 years with little change. Good things that have happened....I got wonderful thank you/goodbye letters from my students the kids made me cry with them, it was soo sweet! I am in the process of making them book marks with a little note printed on them from me. I need to find something for my mentor teacher, she was wonderful!

I just love.....

being told I'm not having an anxiety attack when I clearly am. I have dealt with these attacks for 4 years if not longer.....I know what my triggers are and I know for the most part how to prevent my triggers from occurring....on some occasions though I do not keep up on my school work I get overloaded and I get severely stressed.....and therefore will have an anxiety attack. I also know what helps calm me down. I talked to one of my friends, who has a degree in psychology, explained to her my symptoms I had last night....she said what i described was an anxiety attack. So I had a bad anxiety attack on Thursday night, because of my portfolio wasn't anywhere where it needed to be to be finished....and I decided to wake him and ask him for a hug and to calm me down....and he took that as I was acting like a child.....and thinks that I wasn't having an attack because the behavior on the outside of what he could see stopped but what I was feeling didn't actually stop. But I knew that if the behavior that he was seeing continued he'd be even more mad and we would fight more and that wouldn't help. So last night i was too tired to fight with him being mad at me....I just went to bed. Today he was still mad at me....and instead of him talking to me about it he stormed off when I pushed the issue and ended up driving to NC and who knows where now.....he seems to think that my "anxiety attacks" arent real and I just act that way for attention....yes...Im that great of an actress where I can fake my chest feeling like its going to cave in and force myself to throw up and have a nose bleed...great feat, eh? Sorry Im not that good of an actress people. I cant cry on command. and evidently Im suppose to Inspire him....wtf? Seriously.....inspire him? how? Im at a loss....I tried to do cute stuff for him before....with no reaction....why would I try now....? Im not a muse.....Im human. I just dont know.....I know I need to change for myself....I do not like having motivation to do things.....I know I do not like having anxiety attacks.....but I do need to learn how to talk myself through them or to call someone who actually gets what they are like when they occur.....and surprisingly there were tears this time around but not nearly the same amount.....so it is something I can and will change I didnt use to cry like this and I will get back to that girl I once was and when I do that and he's still not happy well then we know the issue really never was me, it was him all along. ok Im exhausted....Im going to bed. Here is hoping things can get better sooner rather than later.

SO much for my happy ending.......

So much for my happy ending
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh...

Let's talk this over
It's not like we're dead
Was it something I did?
Was it something You said?
Don't leave me hanging
In a city so dead
Held up so high
On such a breakable thread

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything that I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be, but we lost it
All of the memories, so close to me, just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh

You've got your dumb friends
I know what they say
They tell you I'm difficult
But so are they
But they don't know me
Do they even know you?
All the things you hide from me
All the shit that you do

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be


It's nice to know that you were there
Thanks for acting like you cared
And making me feel like I was the only one
It's nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were done


oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh...
[ My Happy Ending Lyrics on http://www.lyricsmania.com/ ]

Just frustrated and annoyed to Bobby my feelings are not number 1 and I'm pretty sure that they should be. Bobby and his brother decided that we would have thanksgiving dinner here at our house. I do not remember either of them telling me this....that's a pretty big deal and one I would have put my foot down on. Its a big deal because I have my portfolio due next week and his parents smoke....I don't want my house smelling like smoke, I don't want my clothes smelling like smoke...and I really do not like the fact that now I am more likely to get a sinus infection from being around the smoke or worse bronchitis. Well I flipped out on Bobby and somehow out of my flipping out he took away that I wanted him to ask permission to have dinner here.....well no but I wish you would have asked me what my thoughts were on it since this is my house too. Evidently Im in the wrong for that as welll......its just a nasty power struggle on his end. Plus his brother keeps going to him and saying how I do nothing around the house...thats right I dont you know why because I teach all freakin' day when I get home Im beat....then I still have to lesson plan or do other work for school....seriously people do you think I want to do anything else.....and instead of Bobby standing up for me....he decides to bitch at me because thats easier than telling his brother he knows where the door is at if he's not happy here. SO Ive decided that if he behavior doesnt change and he doesnt start putting me first Im done Im gone Im leaving....

AS Thanksgiving nears.....

I realize I have so much to be thankful for....I have a family that loves me very much. A boyfriend who loves me very much even though I bug him alot. I have wonderful Amazing friends who are there no matter what and so supportive! Also that I havent been very sick this semester as in semesters past (unless you count that yucky face infection). Also that I wasnt severly hurt in the car accident I was in last week. Also that it only involved me spinning out on that ramp. Also that Bobby was mad at me for breaking his car and causing 4 grand worth of damage to it which thankfully will be covered by insurance! Also that school is going well and that I truely love teaching......it is the most amazing profession I could have chosen!

Yes, We CanCan We Build It?

"Yes, We Can!" Its horrible that everytime I hear Obama say "Yes, We Can" I think..........Bob the Builder! I know random thought cya!

Sunday, November 9, 2008

Is it weird????

That I just found out one of my friends is pregnat, and though Im worried for her, since this was unplanned, Im also jealous. I feel like I have alot of friends having babies....and though its fun to babysit and to be able to give them back.....I really want a baby of my own with Bobby....probably doesnt help that I had Lance harrassing me last night at Maxs about when Bobby and I are getting married and having a boat load of babies. Damn Lance for putting those thoughts in my head grrrrr.....ugh ok lesson planning and bed night.

Cannot believe....

That the same people who voted for Obama are now trying to send out petitions against partial birth abortions and allowing the surviving babies of abortions to die anyway. Seriously had you done your research you would have already of known that before you voted for the man.....It was one of the main reasons I did not vote for him....the best way I have heard it put is "even in other countires, if you survive the firing squad they let you go" How could you be for killing a baby who survived an attemtped murder! Another way I heard it is would you bury someone you werent entirely sure they were dead or alive? More then likely no you would not, so why would you kill a fetus/baby when you can not prove for certain whether or not it can be considered to be alive! Just un believe able, it is sad that this race was won based on color and not on the issues at hand.

In other news the semester is almost over lots to do and still teaching full time so should be fun :-) Well Im gonna go see ya later!

Great News!

Bobby came home on Friday and it was the reunion I was hoping for.....the last several days have been wonderful! Here's hoping that it can stay this way!

Still Struggling......

All I keep reminding myself is that I love him and he is who I want to be with. I willing to fight for him, to push for what we both have been striving for, for so long. I hoping and praying that we are all right and that we can get back to life as usual though not talking to him has been very difficult. In the end all I want is for him to be happy.....so if that means I need to let him go, than I have to let him go.....even though Im really hoping that him being happy means we can be together....I know I know.....so I read something interesting today. A quote to live by we should "Love through it all" So pretty much that means, love through the good and the bad and the really ugly and sometimes love does mean letting go. Even if you really dont want too. SO sleepy....ok gonna finish stuff and go. bye

Went Amazingly well, I have no idea why I was so nervous. I had one principle out right say that if I was graduating in december she would hire me right now! So that was freakin' awesome I walked out of that interview with a huge smile! Baltimore County's interview was a little harder to judge.....I think they are trained to just ask the questions and take notes on our answers and not really interact or show emotion. But the woman that interviewed me was a middle school principal and she said that I should my content praxis(math, reading, science, etc.), so im guessing that is a really good thing! If only I felt like I could handle middle schoolers lol. In other news....Life hasnt been too bad...I still really hate not talking to Bobby.....Im hoping that he calls soon :-\ saying that he misses me. Than we can catch up and I tell him everything he's been missing

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Completely Losssst.....

So....right now is day one of not speaking to each other :-\.....I already feel like a piece of me is missing....I fell and busted my ass while at school and the first thing I thought was Bobby would find this so funny....then I remembered....we're on a break I can't, well shouldn't speak to him....especially since the break was my idea in an attempt to salvage our relationship. Is it wrong that I hope that he speaks to me.....that I ache for him to call me, to hear his voice? Its so hard to not call him.....but I told him I wouldn't. Its so weird not to not call him.....to not be able to share things with him. I love being able to share my day with him.....I love him sharing his day with me. We have not, not spoken to each other like this since we had a major fight and took a break then. I hate it and I miss him :-(....ugh in other news tomorrow will be interviews....one more thing I wont be able to share with him :*-(....Im really nervous....but on the other hand I really do not care....I know I should....but I dont. alright gonna go

Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming....

That's what I keep telling myself.....I hate this sinking feeling that the inevitable is just being delayed. But as I have explained to one of my friends.....I cant just give up that easily, if you love someone fight your heart out first than let go. I know they say if you love someone let them go if they come back their yours......but Im not a sit around and wait type of girl....so Id rather fight for what I want...and have a say in my future, than regret not fighting for him. Plus if I walk away....Im not coming back....I will not look back....I can not look back. The only way to move in life is forward. Alright....I just had to get that off of my chest.....Thank you to all of my friends who have been so supportive of me recently and who have lent their ears and their shoulders to lean on and cry on. Jen, Aimee, and Crystal....you girls are awesome! Thank you so much! I love you girls!

Funny how quickly life can change.....

Bobby and I had this HUGE fight last night......which pretty much came down to him saying that he felt it would be best if I left. The main problem he has is that I dont take initative....Ive always had problems self starting, even when I was a kid. This isnt news.....Somehow, I managed to talk him into doing a break for the week he's away we wont talk. On top of that, I need to find some way to get back to the doctors so I can have my medicine for depression/anixety changed. Granted it levels me out but I still need something to help me self start. I just have no desire to do anything.....school stuff gets done because it has to not only for a grade but because I can not let those kids down. But stuff around the house requires me feeling like doing it.....which is next to never unless I have a reason to do it. So as childish as it sounds I created a chart. With the things that Bobby said he'd like to see done more often. I am going to do two of the 4 things he suggested each day than on a seperate calendar I am marking with a sticker or smilie face where I self started without a problem....at the end of the week I will get a reward and then for a month Ill get a bigger reward. All I can do is pray that he will change his mind about breaking up. I feel like Im in the middle of some big weird, nightmare.....execpt I cant wake up. I love him more than life. I would do anything for him. I want him to be happy and more than likely its selfish, but I want him to be happy with me. So here is hoping that all of this will work together.....and he will change his mind. For a positive, though I did point out we have the ability to make each other laugh when we dont want to, and that even if we're mad at each other for most of the day there is usually one part of the day where we are still happy with each other.So i dunno...life has gotta get better because i have no idea if i can take anymore.....

Blah Blah Blah


The smell of autumn fills the air
Thoughts of childhood fill my mind.

Raking leaves just to fall into the pile
to first brush with falling in love.

The scent of falling leaves drifts by
taking me with it back to a first look,
a first touch, a first kiss.

The sound of fallen leaves under my feet
speak a reminder
of the nervousness and fear of the unknown.

The brisk air a reminder to excitement felt,
the wonder of falling so hard, so fast. Is he for real?
Does he mean what he says?

Dreams of snuggling close by a fire
Lovingly holding each other.

With time dreams fade
and even though together
its not the same.

Just questioning where I'm at and where I want to be. Had anyone told me back when I was a carefree teenager that I would take 6 years to get through college to become an Elementary School teacher who lives with her boyfriend, I would have told them they were nuts. I don't regret any of the choices that I have made. But I do wish that I hadn't let certain events effect my confidence, or my attitude. But oh well....thats life....and I lost my train of thought so im gonna go now!

Friday, October 17, 2008


Was the best professional development day ever! I got so much done its rediculous....granted theres ton more to do but alot was done! I managed to plan all of my math lessons for next week which is teach week, which is a HUGE HUGE HUGE load off my shoulders!Alright thats really it! Update later when I think of more!

Saturday, October 11, 2008


Soooo Great news on the graduation home front. I can take the class I need during mini-mester this winter and leave Towson with a letter stating that I have met the requirements for graduation and am qualified to teach elementary school and I will officially receive my degree in May 2009. Which is exciting and scary! But after this past Friday definitely more exciting. I had a substitute for most of the day as my supervising teacher and was able to manage the class without any trouble taught my lessons it all went beatifully and was exactly what I needed to boost my confidence!

But Im puzzled at the same time....once again I see friends and even family having babies and I think...that could have been me. If I hadnt broken up with Bobby when I had 4 years ago...we'd be married and probably would have a kid or kids of our own. Theres a part of me thats glad that we didnt because theres a very good chance I would not be anywhere near graduating but than at the same time....I want a family of my own....yeah borrowing other peoples kids is nice and I get my baby fix.....but then it makes me want to have my own family even more. I long for a little one to fill my arms....to have the sleepless nights, and getting to see all the firsts....I want to know what its like to have a baby growing inside of me, to feel it move, to kick, to hiccup. I know by waiting Ill value my family even more but I ache for little ones to be running around my house....driving me up a wall. I dunno....Well its time for a shower and to get lesson planning done for the week....Ill write more later!

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

keep your friends close....

and your enemies closer.....so yesterday Bobby and I were fighting over some stupid credit card bill which I havent paid yet and I didnt tell him cause it really wasnt that big of a deal.well I finally figured out how he found out about it and it wasnt through his clearance renewal....it was from a certain two people who used to live with us.....and I had asked them hhey ya know I really dont feel like dealing with the crap from Bobby right now so please dont tell him.....yeah....that didnt happen.....I guess they thought that telling him that would land me out of the house.....guess what it didnt! SO now its just a matter of time before this blows over....I will never speak to either of those people ever again though and if I do it will never be of anything of importance.....I also think I figured out who was trying to start shit saying I was "talking" to my ex Tony again. Which I wasnt.....so argh.....people cant keep their noses out of anything.

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Yes, I dont care what you say I am a fuck up.....

This is because I have credit card debt and didnt mention it to Bobby. He's always saying how he wants me to handle things without going to him. Well I figured I'd handle this one one on my own.....well somehow on his clearance renewal it was discovered I had credit card debt and now he's furious I didnt tell him. Well 1) I didnt tell him because its really none of his business, granted we are living together but were not married so thats MY debt. 2) I didnt want him to pay it off and give him one more thing to hold over my head, I feel like him helping pay for my education is enough for that. I had a plan for paying it off, and I wasnt worried about it...but now I feel like I have an ulser starting because he got pissed cause he felt I was hiding it from him. I wasnt hiding it....I just felt like it wasnt any of his business...just like a numerous amount of things that he fails to share with me until I find out or he shares with me after the fact. Oh and to make matters even better he's known for awhile now....which explains his mood swings and him fussing about how I only go to him for money (which isnt true but whatever). Alright Ive been so upset all day, its now time for me to write out my lesson plans and get stuff ready for tomorrow.

Random Update.....

So....I returned to school on Wednesday with my nose on the mend and a chest cold instead. So I'm doing everything I can to get rid of this horrible chest cold. But I missed my kissed immensely! SO this weekend will be spent catching up on everything since we don't have school again till Wednesday. So now for for something funny....

All from http://www.dumblaws.com/

Dumb Laws in Maryland....
  • Oral sex can not be given or received anywhere.
  • Thistles may not grow in one’s yard.
In Baltimore....
  • It’s illegal to throw bales of hay from a second-story window within the city limits.
  • It’s illegal to take a lion to the movies. (Who took a lion to a movie to prompt this law?)
  • It is a park rule violation to be in a public park with a sleeveless shirt. (Were they trying to make it harder to work on our tans?)
  • No person who is a “tramp” or “vagrant” shall loiter in any park at any time. (Um.....where are the police at in Dundalk for this one...oh that's right half the neighborhood would be behind bars)
  • It is a violation of city code to sell chicks or ducklings to a minor within 1 week of the Easter holiday. (Ya know, I kinda agree with this one but how about to adults too. These types of animals take a lot of work)
Baltimore City....
  • Though you may spit on a city roadway, spitting on city sidewalks is prohibited.
  • You may not curse inside the city limits. (I guess for both of these laws there's not enough paper in the world to write the amount of tickets needed)

  • It is illegal to use profane language on a playground. (I get this one no one wants their kids to be exposed to that on the playground)
  • Knocking stones into a public park is prohibited. (huh? Don't most parks already have stones and rocks in them?)
  • Persons may not swear while on the highway. (Ok, so our we putting recorders in the cars to find this out?)
  • It is illegal to remove a public building by writing on it. (Is this just trying to saw graffiti is illegal?)
  • Citizens may not swim in the public fountains within the city limits. (Well this would seem line common sense)
Now for the dumb criminals....

The Story of Bus

images14.jpgDUMB: Stealing a car. DUMBER: Stealing a city bus. DUMBERER: Stealing a city bus, driving the bus on its route and picking up passengers.

FERN PARK, Fla. (AP) — A 15-year-old boy was sentenced Monday to four years in a juvenile-treatment program after deputies stopped him while driving a stolen bus along a public transit route, picking up passengers and collecting fares.

A judge also sentenced Ritchie Calvin Davis to an additional four months in a treatment program for trespassing and theft linked to an unrelated break-in at a United Way office, the Orlando Sentinel reported for Tuesday editions.

Davis also lost his driving privileges for a year, though he doesn’t have a driver’s license. The sentence means he won’t be able to drive for a year after getting a permit or license.

Damn you Fern Park, Fla. How dare you destroy a child’s dream of wanting to be a bus driver! Does this mean you’ll start arresting kids who play Cops and Robbers for impersonating a police officer?

But does the punishment fit the crime, especially for a repeat offender? Taking away someone’s license who doesn’t have one to begin with is like placing a homeless man under house arrest.

But like a fine Vanessa Williams song, we’ve saved the best for last: he’s been convicted of the same crime. This is the second time he was caught stealing a city bus and driving its route, except the first time he had a fake license. Most kids use fake licenses to buy beer and get into adult places; this kid uses his to do a civil service job. Even juve hall has to have a class nerd.


Don’t Drink and Drive and Show Up to Work at the Police Station

Drunk driving is never a joke. In this case, it’s mildly humorous.

According to the AP, a woman drove drunk to a police station.

She actually works at the state police officer as a cleaning woman. Well, not anymore.

She also drove to work drunk with her 12-year-old son making their first driving lesson all the more awkward.


I remember this one happening....I can't believe that there are cops out there that are that ignorant.

Why Men Don’t Ask for Directions

Maryland apparently has their own brand of protecting and serving.

WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team reporter David Collins said Joshua Kelly and Llara Brook, of Chantilly, Va., got lost leaving an Orioles game on Saturday. Collins reported a city officer arrested them for trespassing on a public street while they were asking for directions .

“In jail for eight hours — sleeping on a concrete floor next to a toilet,” Kelly said.


Hopelessly lost, relief melted away concerns after they spotted a police vehicle.

“I said, ‘Thank goodness, could you please get us to 95?” Kelly said.

“The first thing that she said to us was no — you just ran that stop sign, pull over,” Brook said. “It wasn’t a big deal. We’ll pay the stop sign violation, but can we have directions?”

“What she said was ‘You found your own way in here, you can find your own way out.’” Kelly said.

Collins said the couple spotted another police vehicle and flagged that officer down for directions. But Officer Natalie Preston, a six-year veteran of the force, intervened.

“That really threw us for a loop when she stepped in between our cars,” Kelly said. “(She) said my partner is not going to step in front of me and tell you directions if I’m not.”

And adding insult to injury:

Collins said the couple was released from jail without being charged with anything…

Collins said police left Kelly’s car unlocked and the windows down at the impound lot. He reported a cell phone charger, pair of sunglasses and 20 CDs were stolen.

Baltimore City police said they are looking into the incident.

Welcome to Baltimore.

What a Dummy

When a Highway Patrol officer was making a routine traffic stop, he discovered two dummies inside the vehicle. But only one was human. The somewhat clever dumb criminal was driving in a carpool lane with a kickboxing dummy in his passenger seat. According to polive, officers patrolling the HOV lanes position themselves at the bottom of inclines, which allows them to see into approaching vehicles. Officers used this vantage point to discover an unusual detail about the other occupant of this criminal’s car: the passenger had no legs. The officer drove after the vehicle and ordered the driver to pull over. When he peered into the window, he saw a seat-belted and well-dressed dummy. The officer removed the dummy from the car and placed it on the side of the freeway, to the amusement of passing drivers. The driver was given a hefty citation, and his dummy was confiscated.


I seriously do not blame this guy.....Around my parents house theirs an ice cream or snowball truck that plays some sort of music and then before the music starts again it says "HELLO" Ill tell ya what there were many days I wished I had the power to hit a softball and break the loudspeakers on this truck....

It’s a Small World

It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all…

Getting annoyed already? Well, you’re not alone, and neither is this next dumb criminal. Police in West Hartford, Conn., arrested the 46-year-old man on August 21 after he threatened to castrate an ice cream truck driver. According to Sgt. Jeff Rose of the West Hartford Police Department, the truck was making its way through a residential street when Flynn suddenly ran out of his house and planted himself in front of the slow-moving vehicle. Flynn was allegedly holding a pair of hedge clippers that he waved at the 17-year-old driver. He ordered the driver to turn off the truck’s jingle and to leave the area. “The truck was playing ‘It’s a Small World,’” Rose said. “[Flynn] later told us he hates ice cream truck music.” As the driver drove away, Flynn ran alongside the truck and made cutting motions with his hedge clippers. Flynn was later arrested and charged with threatening and breach of peace. He was released on $500 bond.


Got to love the intelligence of people....

Hand Signals

A car was driving by, going south bound on California Ave. The driver honked, so naturally I looked and I saw the passenger flicking me off. Naturally pride comes into play here so they were pulled over by the police. The driver asked what was the reason for the stop, and it was explained to him the passenger made an illegal arm signal as ordinance states all hand signals shall be done from the drivers side window (referring to turning, stopping slowing hand signals). Then they asked the passenger for identification to write him the citation, while doing so, I checked him for warrants, and he was wanted for armed robbery on the West Coast. He then was arrested and extradited back to California.


Just goes to show technology can be an asset..

Two Years Late

In the Detroit area, two patrol officers went into a neighborhood to show children the new computer equipment they had. R. C. Gaitlin, 21, was also curious. When he asked how the system work, the officers asked him for some identification. After turning over his driver’s license, Gaitlin was quickly arrested. The computer showed that he was wanted for a two year old armed robbery.


Good thinking on the clerks part.....

Hey, I Am 16!

An 18-year-old man was charged with robbing a 7-11. When he walked in, pulled a gun a demanded money, the employee didn’t panic. She calmly said, “I don’t think you’re old enough to be robbing us. Don’t you have to be at least 16?” The thief then proceeded to pull out his wallet and showed the clerk his driver’s license. The clerk quickly memorized the information on the license, than gave the thief the money. The cops arrested the robber at his home.


Thants all for today kiddies....Ill update soon!

Monday, September 22, 2008


i figured Id give an update.....School did not happen for me today and I went back to the doctors. I was given a pain killer cause my face still hurts but thankfully the stuff is slowly oozing out now...about 8 this morning while on the phone with my friend Nicki, I had a hot compress to my face, and I felt something funny so I pulled the cloth away and saw something green, so I went to the bath room...and i looked like Snot had exploded in my nose, turns out one of my bumps had finally burst and the pain has subsided some but not a whole lot.....Im allowed to return to school Wednesday so yippee!

Saturday, September 20, 2008


I went to the drs and I have celulitis of the face.....Bobby says I look like an elf because of it....but Im on antibotics and a cream.....Im also under orders to wash my face 2-3 times a day and my sis said to put hot compresses on my face.....so we'll see about school on monday right now its not looking so good :-\ Just thought Id update

Never Have I ever.....

Been in so much freakin' pain......it started off as some pimple looking thing on the base of my nose...ok cool I put some bacatrine on it go on my way because I know itll hurt to bad trying to pop it....This was wed.....Thursday put more bacatrine on it go to school, red pimple looking bump has gotten bigger and a little sore....so I figured it was just one of my stress pimples and let it be.....Friday red pimple thing gets alittle bigger.... but more bacatrine on it go off to school....about half way through the day my lip begins to swell.....Showed it to my mom she though it was a pimple too told me to put warm compresses on it......tried that look at my face about an hour later because my lip flet funny and it swelled even more....tried Cold Compress that brought the swelling down but not the pain....so that brings us to early saterday morning.....The whike top right side of my face between my top jaw and lower eye lid is swollen and hurts like hell! I had asked Bobby if it cot worse if I could go to the drs...and he said that if it got worse we'd go to the ER.

I Love teaching....

second grade!!!!! I actually look forward to going into school everyday and finding out what crazy thing the kids will say or do next lol. Typically by the end of the day I'm irritated by the students but that's just because I'm exhausted. But by the time I get home, or by the next day I'm ready to see the kids again.

So funny things that have happened:
1. I couldn't figure out why one of my students kept calling me Mrs. Hickey, I explained to her that I'm not married so I'm a Ms. but she insisted that I was married....so I asked to who, and she said "that guy that picked you when you left half a day", that guy is one of my classmates, and there's NO way I'd even date him let alone marry him!
2. My kids watch way too much TV and here's why: While going over vocabulary for a story they would be reading one of the vocabulary words was diet. One kid busts out with: Diets dont work, and right after that kid two says: But weight watchers does!
I nearly peed myself when they said that! lol
3. These kids also like to repeat things that their parents say, during that same Vocab lesson one of their vocabulary words was Dairy, and so my mentor teacher was getting the studnets to label foods that go in the dairy group. One of the little girls said: "I know cheese is good for you but if you too much of it, it can really bind you up!" I was nearly on the floor with that one....I mean who expects to hear a second grader to say! lol

My Students are also really sweet!
1. One little boy always asks me and my mentor teacher if theres anything he can do before he leaves to go home.
2. After I picked up the students from gym one day I felt a poke on my stomach, I looked down to scold the culprit, to find that this little was giving me the sticker she had earned that day!
3. Most of the time the students will congratulate each other for a job well done, which is so endearing and a great way to build up a closeness between the students!

Well I have lots to do in order to be prepared for tomorrow and the following day so If I think of anything else Ill let ya know!

P.S. HI DAWN!!!!! :-D

I just realized......

That I never really wrote about my first week of school. Which is a good thing that I waited until now to do so. The kids really are great! We have the typical behavior issues but they don't talk back like the 4th graders do.....we have one boy that will definitely need a woman to keep him on the ball when he grows up cause he's just a space cadet. Than we were informed by the parent of one of the students that oh yeah we were trying our kid without their ADHD meds, but obviously its not working so we need to start them on it again......no shit! Seriously, why would you do that to your kid! If they are on it and actually succeed while on it....why make them suffer, and why put the teachers through that....we werent informed about that need until friday.... so the poor kid had a bad week because its parents decided to choose that week for them to go with their meds.....grrrr! Besides that it was an interesting week and a great begining of the year.

Oh What A Night.......

Last night was awesome! When I look back on my 20's I really hope that, that night is ingrained in my memory. Jen and I met up with her friends Dan and Fred (there were suppose to more people there but they decided not to come out) at Max's in Fells. I love the atmosphere of that place! At least upstairs is pretty chill and not too crowded. We just sat around, talked and had a drink. Eventually decided we would go bar hopping but never actually chose a bar to go into so we just walked around Fells Point talked, Jen and I acted like goof balls, I almost ended up on my ass because we were walking on this like wooden deck, and I had flip flops on. Note to self....wet wood and flip flops not a good combo.....Thankfully Jen saved me from falling as I slipped Lol! " Oops I got the boobs!"-Jen, and later that night "Oh that's what you meant when you said you got the boobs, I thought you meant I had grabbed yours"- Me to Jen. "Wait where were we, when you were grabbing her boobs, how did we miss that" - a combination of Fred and Dan.
On the trash can it says big belly...Dan just had to have his picture
taken with it!

So Fred and I played the oh I know them game...and I learned that Fred is the brother to Greg of the ACA (Alcohol Consumption Association, Agency(something like that)).

This week I have also learned that nights like these with other young adults are completely necessary or you will lose your ever lovin' mind while teaching! In fact I think I acted goofier than usual because my brain is becoming mush from dealing with 6,7, and 8 year olds all day, five days a week! So becoming a hermit this semester may not be an option and I hope that Jen keeps me from becoming that hermit! Alright off of here to get a shower and think of whats going on tonight :-D see ya!

Stupid emotions......

So as of late, my emotions have been like a pinball machine....I know Im not pmsing cause i had my period last week. Its been the last several days so i dont know if its the weather is just affecting my mood or if Im already stressing about school and my lessons, or if Im catching something from those kids already. Poor Bobby has caught the brunt of my mood swings too....One minute Im mad about something really stupid the next Im crying cause i realized I flipped out over something dumb. Ive been good and taking my anti-anxiety/depression meds like Im suppose too, I take them at night now cause I realized I was forgetting to take them during the day...and at night if I go to bed without taking them Ill actually get out of bed and go take them. Im starting to think that second graders and student teachers dont mix well or maybe its just me....I suck at time management....thats my biggest problem! I have no idea how much time Im suppose to be giving these kids to do stuff and Im not sure my mentor teacher has much of an idea but shes better at playing it by ear and observing their behavior...I dunno maybe i just need sleep. Well im gonna go chill out now cya!

This ones for you dawn! :-D

Hi Dawn! I realized I hadn't updated since Sunday and that I probably should since I know you (Dawn) are interested in my life lol! Yesterday was the best first day anyone could ask for. Granted it was hectic and confusing...but the kids held in there with us and were wonderful! Today wasn't too bad either, though the kids personalities were really starting to shine through which was neat to see on the one hand than aggravating on the other. I taught my first lesson of the semester today. It was a health lesson....the general idea of it was that just because everyone looks different were all the same on the inside.....which the kids got right off the bat....and than we also covered that its ok to be different (looks, personality, likes, dislikes, talents, etc.) because are differences are what make us special. So it was the feel good lesson of the year. Though I did learn that M&M's and 2nd graders do not mix very well because the kids focused on the M&M's more than they did me. Tomorrow we will cover feelings and how to deal with them....I think....I dunno the days blur together lol....Well thats really it....Im gonna chill out for a bit hopefully go to bed at a decent hour tonight.

Surprise surprise....

My computer room still has not been cleaned up....I have little motivation to do so! So my first week back is over and I still want to be a teacher....its a lot to get a classroom set up in the beginning of the year. Thankfully my mentor teacher had a good bit done before she had even left for summer break. I also learned how teachers learn the names of their students so quickly.....they write the students names on so many items that its hard not to know their names! Tomorrow is the first day that the students are in class.....I'm excited but nervous....I could care less if the kids actually like me, I just hope that they are as well behaved as their previous teachers claim them to be. On Tuesday I will start teaching the first health unit of the school year....its about 10 days long and covers everything from feelings to health care so it should be an interesting two weeks....I can not wait to get to the hand washing lesson....hopefully these kids will realize how important it is to wash their hands so I will not catch their germs! Alright I need to stop procrastinating and finish my lesson plans for the next week.... If I think of anything else Ill up date than! Cya!

Monday, August 18, 2008


Well the computer room has not been cleaned up yet.....but I did start back to school today! My mentor teacher is awesome....the other 2nd grade teachers are awesome! I am beat today though! I am still on a summer time sleep schedule so that should be fun....everyone is really nice though. Today I spent the first part of the day in a very long welcome back faculty meeting. Than the second part of the day I spent cutting out stuff....I think I sat and cut stuff out for about 4-5 hrs probably. Tomorrow while my mentor teacher is at some sort of curriculum meeting I will be sitting and labeling materials all day and than if and when I'm done that I will be helping out where ever needed. Wednesday I will spend the first part of the day at one school learning about the math curriculum and some sort of workshop and than I will be headed back to the school I work with to help setting the class up. So thats really about it I am ridiculously beat right now so I'm gonna go relax....see ya'll later!
