My teacher clothes make me look old..

So today I taught a bunch of 5th graders while my professor observed. Nerve wrecking? Yea…but it went really well.

The only thing my professor wasn’t happy about was that my students were too well behaved. They were perfect. She said they were unrealistically perfect. I asked them to be on their best behavior and they listened, maybe I should have asked them to misbehave a little to make the classroom seem more realistic. Whatever. I was so happy with the kids for being so wonderful I made sure to tell them that…at least 12 times. After I thanked them one of the students said, “Aw Miss LaVine, we got yo back”One of the kids wrote me a note that said, \”Miss LaVine, I hate reading and english except when you teach it” I wanted to squeeze him (I didn’t) After my professor was gone the students told me not to worry because they know I’m getting a good grade.

You never know what to expect, or what the kids might say to you that day. Today one of my students asked me what heroine was, another one of my students for some reason had quarters falling out of his sleeves all day, another kid asked me if New York was in Illinois, and apparently my teacher outfit made me look old because they thought I was 29 (I’m 22)

Overall, today was a very good day.

Dr. Lowery made my day

My professor sat in the front of class holding an umbrella over his head…

He looked adorable sitting up there twirling his umbrella around. It made me giggle.

You’re so pretty on Facebook!

Today while I was coaching gymnastics one of my 7th grade students said to me: You are so pretty in your facebook pictures, you’re like a gem. Much prettier than whenever I see you.

It started out as such a good compliment…I don’t think I’ve ever been called a gem before. But it doesn’t matter because apparently I’m prettier online than I am in real life.

Sporcle Took Over

Can you name the U.S. Presidents? – sporcle

This website and more specifically this quiz has taken over me. I’m obsessed. It’s a strange thing to be obsessed with but it’s true. I am so good at naming the US Presidents now, I can even name them in order. I think about it all the time, it sounds boring but it’s the truth. I am that weird. In fact, I am so obsessed I decided that instead of taking notes in all my classes I would list off the Presidents ( in order of course) in all of my notebooks.

…it doesn’t stop there. I was out last night, Tuesday night is college night at the local Italian restaurant which means free crappy pizza with the purchase of one drink. Naturally, since I am a poor starving college student I go every Tuesday…Last night I decided to take a crayon and list off the Presents onto the paper table cloth. Could I be any nerdier?

Sporcle took over my brain.

Black Egg

This is why I should not paint Easter Eggs…

Go ahead and laugh, I know it’s grossest egg you’ve ever seen. Who has black Easter Egg dye anyway? It’s the most un-Eastery egg color I’ve ever seen.

Hung like a peep

My sister wouldn’t eat these peeps because they have peepers. Look closely, they do.

I almost died laughing when I heard my sister say, ” I can’t eat those!! The peeps have peeps!!”

Note to self:

DO NOT buy teeth whitener off a Facebook AD. The result will be a burn, badly. You might experience bleached gums, spitting up blood, and a swollen face. It’s so not the white teeth you were hoping for.

PS- You have got to stop being such a weak shopaholic.
