my first day of school

September 12, 2008 at 10:29 am (Uncategorized)

So I’ve been away for too long. I’ve been away from a LOT for too long…sanity being the main thing I’ve missed. So, I’m trying my hand at this writing thing again. I love it too much not to do it.

When I was in 3rd grade, I had a teacher named Mrs. Irvine. I LOVED Mrs. Irvine. Quite honestly, I loved school. Spelling, Math, Reading, and History were my favorite subjects. Oh, and Geography. And Computers. I was a nerd, for sure. Take a look at the pictures…they’ll speak for themselves.
Everyday, Mrs. Irvine had a drink on her desk. A huge cup with a lid and a straw. It was like a “Big Gulp”…everyday I wondered what was in it. One day, I finally got the nerve to ask. It was Mountain Dew. For real, I was in awe that my teacher got to drink Mountain Dew at her desk. Holy moly. I knew from that day on that maybe someday, I’d get to drink pop at my desk, too.

Jobs have come and gone…I’ve loved them all. But today I started a new one. I was looking for something that was fairly mindless with good pay (and benefits!). I started at Disney Elementary teaching computers. I’m SO excited. Today, however, I did various, sundry tasks as needed. My computers weren’t ready yet.

At 3:00, I left completely satisfied. I got plenty of hugs from kids (too many..), my hands are dyed blue and purple (thanks to popsicles during lunch duty), and the best part? I started my day with a Dr. Pepper on my desk.
