I must seem soooo old to my students. Being around teenagers all day, it makes me FEEL old, but today a student was telling a story about a sub they'd had in another class. I stopped her and asked if she was a young sub or an older sub (trying to see if I knew the substitute she was mentioning), and my student said, "She's younger than you- she graduated from high school like 10 years ago...". I told my student Tristen that just for her information, I graduated from HS 9 years ago, thank you very much! It is days like today that 27 feels REALLY OLD! Keith and I are chaperoning the Sadie Hawkins dance tomorrow night, so I'm sure i'll have some stories to tell from that! I am off to hunt at ROSS for a dress....I love that place, by the way!
Also, during lunch I was shuffling my iTunes and rediscovered my RENT soundtrack. I listened to this non-stop when I first moved to Birmingham after college, and it reminds me of all that new independence, new job, new everything! If you aren't familiar with that musical I suggest that you aquaint yourself with the songs.
Maybe I can write something more substantial later :) Happy Friday!
