Random Thoughts Thursday

• Pens and more pens!  One of my students gives me sweet notes here and there.  One day she gave me a very pretty one colored with gel and glitter pens.  I made a comment and asked her to bring me a few so I could see the brand.  She showed up the next day with the WHOLE SET!  Isn’t it pretty?  I had fun that day picking different colors to use while grading papers.  I might get a small set for me.

•A few students like giving me notes/drawings.  They’re so creative and definitely draw better than me.  🙂  They know I like cats and that I have a cat, so they’re always drawing cat pictures.  Each one definitely warms my heart because I know they’ve taken the time to do something for me and I love seeing their smile when they give me their drawing.  I have so many of them on the wall behind my desk and it brightens my day when I see them.

• Have you seen the Boston Marathon limited edition shoes?  I have a pair and cannot wait to run in them.  I don’t know when that will be since I am already rotating 4 pairs of shoes.

• How about these Dunkin Donuts Saucony Kinvara 9?  I got very excited when I saw these at school on Tuesday (not sure when they were made available for sale).  I quickly posted it on Instagram and didn’t think about them again till I got home.  I wanted to order them but apparently my size was sold out.  I checked again on Wednesday and they’re no longer on the site.  Only 2,000 pairs were made and ALL were sold.  I wasn’t too upset that I didn’t get a pair.  The way I see it is that I saved $110 and I definitely do not need another pair.  Right?  They’re still very cute.

• Have you tried a Pour Over Coffee Maker?   I have a Keurig and a coffee maker.  For sure I don’t need this, right?  Am I missing on some great coffee?

• The other day I was on Facebook reading about some songs that don’t mean what you think they meanOne of them was “Waterfalls” by TLC.  I was in college when that song was out and remember it being a catchy song, but didn’t pay too much attention to the lyrics.  Anway, 20+ years later I am finding out that that song is about HIV/AIDS and drugs.  What?  I had NO idea.  I just saw the video and listened to the lyrics.  I can’t find the post on Facebook but I was appalled at the comments people left.  Some went as far as calling some people “stupid” because they didn’t know the real meaning of the song lyrics.  I don’t understand how some people can be so RUDE and going as far as saying things like that.  Sometimes I really diske Facebook and don’t check it at all.

  1. Colored pens make me ridiculously happy and I’m not even a teacher. But I do enjoy sketching/doodling/being creative.

    Many songs aren’t what we think they’re about! I definitely didn’t know that was what that song was about, either.
