If it was possible, I’d totally become Kat Dennings.

I love this bracelet so much!😍🎀💗

I have a bracelet just like this, only the stones are pastel blue, green, and pink.  I bought it from the Annapolis museum in downtown.

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

Then I spend time with teenagers.

And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.

It’s not even teens.  It’s college students.  I can’t even be around them.

We went out for a bar crawl on St Patrick’s Day.  IT was a shitshow.  And I KNOW some of these brats were older than me. WTF.

I think there should be far more laws when it comes to starting a family and raising children, such as:
1. You shouldn’t be allowed to have children without a background check. I feel so awful for children with mothers addicted to crack and other drugs. I also think there should be some sort of restrictions with money, like parents have to be able to have enough money to properly feed and clothe their child. Childhood determines the rest of your life in my point of view, and I want every child to have as pleasant of a childhood as possible.
2. There should be some sort of population law. Like, you cannot have more than so-many children, just because over-population is a real issue. After you have the set amount limit, you should be able to adopt if you want more. Adopting a child makes a HUGE difference and I know that I personally will adopt as an adult. Also, if you have a child without a proper background check, maybe they could go up for adoption where more families will be willing to adopt them.
But I wouldn’t be sure about religious things because I know that abortions AND contraceptives are banned in a lot of religions.
So yeah, I think we should enforce stuff like that because childhood is when you really develop the person you will be later on. Obviously if you’re a criminal as a child, you might not be one for the rest of your life, but the chances of you being a criminal are much higher. Children need good role models, environments and educations in order to create a better future for not only themselves, but the entire world.

Hmmm! Good idea at a glance, but what do we think?

I had a conversation with some people once about something similar.
I wish that there was a form of permanent birth control that gets implanted into you at birth.  It keeps you from getting pregnant, and then contraceptives would be for STDs and such. 
When you and your partner want to have a child, you get a background check and take some classes.  If you come out ok and pass, you get your implant removed and you can try for a baby. If you fail, you can take extra classes or if you need rehab or anything like that.  When you’re done with children, you can get it re-implanted.
Religions would have an issue because many believe babies are “From god” and we’d be “playing god” (which I think id he wanted you to have babies he’d give them to you BC or not). Also, there would be resistance from people who believe that everyone, no matter what, has the right to reproduce.
It’s a difficult ethical topic that would be interesting to see debated.

J. Crew Factory! Love what I bought today 💙💚

I went to Jcrew factory yesterday!
I tried on four pair of shorts, in a size lower than normal, and all of them fit.  That never happens to me.  I almost cried.
I bought light pink skimmer pants, khaki bermudas to go with everything (I’m coming back for the navy pair with anchors), and bright coral shorts.  They had a 40% off sale on shorts and pants.  My fiance had to pull me out because I swear that JCrew factory stores could be my closet and I wanted to buy everything (he also got shorts btw)

Weather, wtf are you doing?

82 degrees with sun on Sunday, 72 degrees on Monday with crazy wind, and today it’s now 36 degrees with ice and hail.

I’m not surprised if I end up sick after all of this and the wedding nonsense I have to deal with.

Blehhhh.

I am more than…

talesofan8thgradeteacher:

…class averages on report cards

…a standardized percentile

…a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 20th year teacher

…180 days, but you have summers off!

We consistently tell students they are more than the “numbers”. When will we start telling teachers the same?

I will not be made to feel guilty for giving 200%+ every day. By politicians, districts, parents, other teachers, students.

I am doing EVERYTHING I can, to be EVERYTHING my students need.

Together, we are both more than numbers.
