"Where is Leslie, Where is Leslie?"
"Here she is....Here she is..."
"How are you today, miss?"
"Very well, I thank you."
"Run away. Run away."
Okay so I'm not playing thumbkin. I've just been über busy with the little bits that life is throwing my way right now. Work has been quite the TOXIC environment as of late, but I'm managing to get by as I set my sights on my next off-track day: NOVEMBER 24TH. That's only sixteen days away, folks! The countdown begins! Yay!
Last week there were 2 shootings near our school (One in the apartments across the street, and one a block away from school). One of our students was shot in the hand, and another in the stomach. Sometimes I wonder why I choose to work in such an environment, one where such awful evil is present. But then I realize that I chose my school because I care about my students, and I care about our future. I believe that these teenagers can be (and usually are) caring, intelligent human beings. They just need a little guidance and support from those around them, and that's why I choose to be there, I suppose. I just hope that I'm making a difference. *sigh*
I've also been enjoying Penelope's Illustration Friday meme. Fridays have never been so much fun, and Mondays are always eagerly anticipated as the new theme is posted. I participated twice, and I get wait to participate again (perhaps this Friday?) Today I came home to find my Loobylu Christmas Cards on my doorstep. Claire is so unbelievably talented and inspiring!!! Can't wait to send these beauties out.
On the Gifty front, I am just about to send out your partners via e-mail! I just have a few little bits to tie together, and they'll be out tomorrow. PROMISE! : ) I'm really excited about this. So excited!
