You Smile and Say the World, it Doesn't Fit With You

There is an incredible thunderstorm going on right now. I love it.

I've had an interesting thought process, which really illuminates to me how much I've changed. It scares me how many things I was SURE OF as a younger person have now changed. I was certain about so many things, but as I come into the adult world, more and more of my childish illusions come crashing down. One thing that has really changed, and is actually kind of rocking my brain, is the conclusion I have recently drawn: I think I want to be a teacher after graduation. Not forever, but I think I want to teach at Wooster. By the time I graduate, I will be more than qualified, and the school is so beautiful and has such a great mission. I think I'd enjoy that. I have so many memories there, it would be cool to make more as an adult. I'd want to be with the middle schoolers, because those are the strongest memories, and I think I could draw on that and it would help me interact with them. English is my gift, and I learned most of it/had the height of my interest in 7th and 8th grade. I want to use that passion and maybe get other people to have that kind of positive experience.

Clearly, I'm Bored...

An Excellent Weekend

This weekend Mallory and Jason came to visit. We hung out with Dave as well. It was a great time, with lots of fun and food. Plus Torrey got to meet them, and we even had a little party one night.
We went to Pepe's Pizza, which was the most ridiculous pizza I've ever had...such a cool brick oven, crispy crust, and a pitcher of Sam Adams Summer Ale. We had clam and bacon pizza, onions and peppers, and a sausage one. Delicious!
Also went to Bobby Q's, and had amazing pulled pork, to the point of bursting. Plus we discovered a newly opened Vineyard Vines store! Dave and I got REALLY excited, and we were going to go the next day when it was open, but we ended up forgetting.
We spent Saturday at Chicken Rock swimming and hiking, which was BEAUTIFUL, but then the cops busted us....which was actually pretty cool...especially since Mallory was pretty much in the nude. lol. Then spent the day next to Dave's beautiful pool and floating in the water, beers in hand. Great times. Dinner at the Sesame Seed, and I had my all time favorite, "Veal the Wild One". Yummmm! Saturday night we went to the Carnival at the mall, and Jason "proved his manliness" and won me two prizes. It was soooo much fun, and we went on the swings and the ferris wheel.
This week is going to be really hot...local schools were dismissed early because of the heat. Thank god for air conditioning.

Ok Go Obsession

So, after watching the Original Ok Go treadmill video and then the Granbury High School kids video a MILLION times, I found a great way to compare the two. A side by side!

And THEN, I discovered that clearly these four Granbury guys have wayyyy too much time on thier hands AND a shared obsession with Ok Go. Because here's another Ok Go video:

And then the Granbury guys copying it, too!
