excuses for my absence

well, it has been a whopping 4+ months since "le premiere" blog, and here i am doing "le seconde" blog. i have a plethora of reasons (read: excuses) for my absence in blogworld, but here's a short list: first-year teacher (language arts, which means thousands of papers [hyperbole] to grade), grad school, trying to maintain a social life, etc.

however, i just had this fabulous idea to continue my blogging while still doing the above: i will blog during my students' journal time. in fact, i might even show my students. shocking, i know, but apparently it's good for students to see their teachers write. now, let me make this clear...this is a good IDEA, but i make no guarantees this will be a lasting PRACTICE. things do come up, you know. things like school fights, students' questions, class disruptions, students' questions, taking attendance, students' questions, grading those thousand papers, students' questions, and general silliness.

anyway, that will be the plan from now on. i suppose that means i'll have to start capitalizing my i's. here's an extra little nugget for you (because i don't feel like i said much of importance in this blog) planet earth, the tv show...amazing. watch it. your brain will thank you for it.and run's house (hilarious wholesomeness) and, of course, the office. awkwardly amusing. (ps. i am not quite as dorky as this blog may make it seem...do not judge prematurely.)
