A Swinger of Birches

Ask me anything   Submit   My little blog in my little corner of the world. I teach middle school. I listen to music. I hang out with my friends. I am attempting to be healthy. I love hard.

My idea of the perfect exercise class is this: The teacher gives us all a hug and goes, “You did it! You showed up! Let’s lie down.” We all lie down and she’s like, “How is everybody feeling?” We’re like, “Great!” And the teacher’s like, “Great!” Then we all get to leave 20 minutes early. - Amy Poehler

Imagine stabbing someone with this knife. 

It would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.

if you want information it is

and above, in order, we see a gryffindor, a ravenclaw, and a slytherin

why would you stab a PERSON when you can have TOAST?

There’s the hufflepuff

"Music is at it’s best when you can lay out your flaws and put them to a melody that hides them, so people just end up singing along to things that are actually a little less than perfect."

-John Mayer (introducing “Half Of My Heart” live on Letterman)

This is what poetry is. A song your reader’s heart plays along with to sync your souls, despite the unattractiveness of your imperfection as a human being and as a writer.

Weight Watchers Week 6
3 pounds down this week for a total loss of 16.2 pounds! Loving this progress! Seeing so many changes in how I make choices, and I love this change. This gorgeous spring weather isn’t hurting either- I’m in the best mood!
This is my very first full body picture on Tumblr. And I don’t hate it. Here’s to loving who you are as well as who you want to be.

Why Being A Teacher Costs A Lot More Than The Price Of A Teaching Degree
Sitting in class as a student, one of the last things you think about is where all of the classroom supplies came from. The school fairy, maybe?

But realistically, at least some of them probably came out of the teacher’s own wallet. The perks of being a teacher (educating future generations!) might outweigh the cost of staplers and bulletin boards, but isn’t it still alarming to see the financial hoops many must jump through just to do their jobs?
