Hello there. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Would you like some coffee? yummy_smilies/icon_tea.gif

First thing I will say about myself... I'm a Christ follower, although probably not a very good one, at that. I try to share God's love by being kind and attentive to people, but sometimes my own jealousy and insecurity get in the way. To those I've accidentally hurt or offended, I apologize, and I will try to do better.

Anyway, I'm studying to be a high school English teacher right now. Not the most exciting job in the world, but someone has to do it right? I never knew there was so much planning involved in teaching, but I'm hoping I can still be a hit with the kids. And, y'know, in the end, I just want to work where everybody knows my name.... smilies/icon_sweatdrop.gif

Let's see... hobbies.... well, I like to draw. Love to draw. Need to draw. It curbs my excessive energy. Um... also taking long walks, reading, y'know, stuff. Lately I've been trying this "exercise" thing, so we'll see how that goes. smilies/icon_sweatdrop.gif

Well, that's it for now. I love getting PM's and Comments, so don't be a stranger. Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you're going through, I hope you have a nice day, and please know that someone out there cares. emotion_smilies/icon_hug.png

That sounds fun! Also competitive. You best bring your A game. emotion_dowant
I don't know man, but you've been missing out. They've got a lot of good literal covers. rofl Somehow I knew you'd like the Lord of the Flies part.
It's a simplified version of an avatar I use sometimes. Somehow I can't draw complicated pieces on a tablet. sweatdrop I've never even drawn like that before, but I had to adopt a new style so the art would look okay. Very Invader Zim inspired, I realized.
I'd like to say I was enjoying spring, but it snowed yesterday. lol We had a few weeks where it was getting warmer and then the weather was like "lol nope".
Jonny's pretty good. Calculus II's giving him trouble because he's not very good at visualizing 3D objects in his head, but other than that everything's going well.
Drake's awesome. He's so freaking smart. I know I'm biased, but his favorite words are "excavator" and "synthesizer" since he loves trucks and music. He always asks "What instrument is this?", and since he loves dubstep, it's generally a synthesizer. lol Too bad Jonny hates dubstep/techno. My bad.
WALL OF TEXT LEVEL: It's over 9,000!

I totally understand that feeling, man. It happened when I moved out for school. "Wait... I gotta actually be responsible? I have to pay rent? I gotta buy my own groceries...hang on-I don't even have a car!!" A rude awakening, though you've been moved out for a while and won't have my naive problems. lol I think a lot of it is the comfort of "I've been doing this so long" and "I know what to expect". Something new's gonna shake things up and be unknown, so of course you'd be at least a little reluctant to end one thing and start another.
And you're listening to it because it's a freaking awesome song. And maybe every now and then you get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by. But don't worry, bright eyes. Every now and then, we all fall apart. emotion_awesome Also, if you haven't seen the literal version, you should watch it right now.

Haha, that's still cool though. At least you're drawing. I hardly ever draw anymore, and I got a tablet for Christmas. sweatdrop I used it once and haven't touched it again. I'm just too tired and rusty. I'm already an old man. gonk

Honestly, I think it's awful and cheesy... ninja But Donny Osmond always comes with cheese. lol

Ah, that must've been wicked hard. That's a real sacrifice, right there. I'm impressed.
I'm glad you're enjoying it! Finally time to graduate? HOO-rah! Wow, I kinda feel like I've gone on your school journey with you. Way back when I was reading your comics. xd It feels like so long ago. My little Jojo's all grown up now, bein' a teacher out in the real world. crying

lol Have you seen Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat? Because that's what you just reminded me of.

Haha, that aside, how've you been? You kinda disappeared for a while. ninja

Naw, it's all good. Yuck, the flu is awful. I'm glad you recovered so quickly!
Haha yeah, now my body's super out of shape. I got winded running from my bedroom to the kitchen. =.='
Yep, and Calculus 2 is kickin' his butt. I can't even look at his textbook because my brain starts hurting.

So after this student teaching thing you're all done? Sweet! Are you able to move on from student teaching to the full job straight away?
Good job man, good job. I'm so glad you like what you're doing and the students are good to you.
As for asserting authority... I have a feeling there will be a class clown someday that'll get ya being assertive real quick. wink

I submitted before I was really finished. sweatdrop
Student teaching will be cool! Are you doing that as like an internship kinda thing or a big time job kinda thing?

lol YMCA was my favorite song for a while as a kid.
emotion_0A0 Fever dreams... those are the worst. For me it's just the same thing over and over and I get unbelievably frustrated. I hope you get better soon. I was just sick for three weeks with three different illnesses. It's not fair to catch something else right as you start to get better. emotion_donotwant

Not much is new. I can't remember if I told you I quit my job. Husband is back in school. My sister just found out she's pregnant. That's about it.

What about you?
