Evaluations, R.I.P., and I have a new nephew

Happy Friday everyone. Today was a good day. Class went well, weather was awesome, and I got some new socks. I love new socks. They feel so good when you put them on for the first time. Sigh. Today's blog is dedicated to Jessie Morris. Jessie is a wicked smart, mellow, happy go lucky person with a big heart and a gentle soul. I'm glad that she is in my life. You rock Jessie. Katie Fazoli really wanted a "shout out" it is Katie. You also rock Katie:)

So today I was evaluated at Saddleback by the head of the speech department. My students were amazing and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect class. One student brought me coffee, everyone read the assigned chapter, comments were well thought out, and my jokes were all a hit. I think I'll hire someone to "evaluate" me every week so my students will be on their best behavior. LOL. I was truly appreciative of the efforts by all. Needless to say...the evaluation went well. I was actually encouraged to apply for the open full time position. That was pretty cool. I really am a great teacher and am so glad that I love what I do. IPOD has died and is no more. While listening to a lecture on facing your fears I dropped it into a cup of coffee. I had always been afraid of doing that. Guess I had to face that fear sooner than I wanted to. I tried to dry it out by putting it into a bowl of uncooked rice but it didn't work:( I'm not sure when I'll be able to buy another one which really bums me out. Santa doesn't come for 10+ months. Oh well. Maybe I can find a used one on craigslist or something. We'll see. I'll keep you all posted because I am sure none of you will sleep until you know what I'm going to do about getting another IPOD. I'm kidding of course.

So.....I have a new nephew. He is a little mexican polish english jew and I couldn't be happier. His name is Moshe Akiva Weinstein and he's really really cute. Yasmin (Myriam's sister) just finished her nursing degree at NYU in December then gave birth in January. I feel so unproductive compared to her. Hopefully we can go out to New York this summer to see him. That would be cool. Mazel Tov!!

OK.....that's it for today. Looking forward to the weekend. It's supposed to be warm and sunny AND I'm going to a super bowl party.

  3. That sucks about your ipod. My boyfriend works at Apple, and can he can get you 10% off. So when you're ready to replace yours let me know! :)
