and today i realized some things about myself that i would like to share with you, randomly, on the day before Thanksgiving.
Number 1. I could not be a teacher. Now, usually i think this way because i wouldn't want to be "on" every day, but today i think this because I would get fired for not keeping my shit together when talking with disrespectful and rude teenagers. At a health fair recently i may have gotten a little too sassy when illustrating how little disrespect i would take when talking about an important topic. There was gasping from the other students in our conversation. There were looks from surrounding students as i reiterated this conversation to a colleague. Guess these spoiled kids aren't used to being called disrespectful? They were, and i'm not gonna whisper about it.
Number 2. There is such a thing as a Pennsylvania Dairy Princess whose role is to educate about milk and cheese and the goodness of those things. She wears a crown and a sparkly sash while she does her educating. I educate about important topics (see Number 1). I want a crown and sparkly sash. I want to be Pennsylvania Dating Violence Awareness Princess. Let me see if the agency will go for that.
Number 3. I am strangely excited about Thanksgiving this year, more than other years. There is no logical explanation for this. It will be the same family (who i love) and the same food (that i can't wait to eat) yet my feelings of giddiness are freaking me out a little bit.
Number 4. Going along with those excited Thanksgiving feelings is a recent shopping frenzy. Why? Is it brought on by all these Black Friday commercials? I don't even need anything, yet i can't wait to pour over the newspaper and call aloud the deals and steals to S. Yesterday i bought a new coat.
I then bought a new work bag, because one clearly can't use rainbow polka dots alongside this gray and yellow plaid. Black Friday sales starting at 12am...things for me or things for others. A hard decision.
Number 5. Speaking of shopping, don't forget the Shabby Apple giveaway ends tomorrow. Go here to win this skirt.
I want to know...do you have a game plan for Black Friday shopping? Sticking by the computer or braving the crowds?
