“If you can’t laugh at yourself, life’s going to see a whole lot longer than you’d like it.”
I believe that life should be a little Loon(e)y. I have far too many odd things about me to view life as anything else. I’m the type of person who has an extremely difficult time with things that are supposed to be ‘as easy as 123.’ I sometimes mistake a hammer for a screwdriver, and once set an iron flat on a wood table. Common sense is not my strong suit. Being a new mother has made me even more aware of this fact.
Yet I teach teenagers, who are maybe more gullible than me. I’m a High School English and Journalism teacher. In this blog, I’ll show you what it’s like to navigate through the trenches of teenagers and the messiness of motherhood , while trying to pick up some life skills that are supposed to be simple but somehow turn out anything but. In this blog, I’ll share many of my daily thoughts in both my personal and professional life—along with many, many instances where I attempt things that are supposed to be simple. I can analyze literature, but, show me a map or a toolbox, and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
