Feeding My Brain

Hey Good People, I have some good news to share. I was a awarded a full-scholarship for a Masters in TESOL!  The acronym stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

I started my class this week and I am very excited to have this opportunity to learn new ideas and theories that will take my teaching to another level.

I am also grateful that there are three teachers from my school that are part of the cohort! Oh, and we all  really get along with each other.  It is awesome to have a built-in support group along for the journey.

So, here I go again!

Random Thoughts

This post consists of my thoughts from the self-absorbed, to the serious, to the observant and then ending with a daily mantra that continues to sustain me.

  • I am now totally free of credit card debt! I just paid off my final card and feel very fortunate to be able do so.  I had to turn to my cards when I was laid-off for a few months awhile back. It took some time to pay them off, but I got it done.

  • Zimmerman was found innocent in a court of law, but guilty in the court of public opinion. Zimmerman disregarded his training and the words from the dispatcher when he was told told not to pursue Trayvon. Trayvon had the right to stand his ground. Oh, and the lawyers on the prosecution side should be fired for doing such a shitty job. Phew! I got that off my chest. 

  • I see you yungins. I see how what came before you influences you, then you put your spin on it in order to make it your own. I now ask you to respect the elders that gave you those influences by asking questions. The answers to those question will take what you do to another level. 

  • I still continue to say 95% of my mornings, "God thank you for another day. I know I am blessed. And, miracles happen every day.
