Here is some stuff that is new with me.
I'm totally watching Greek oh Hulu right now. Holy crap I love that show. I think I am the only one that watches it. In real life, I think it is on Fox Family on Monday night. But I really love it. Mostly because I was in a fake (LDS) sorority in college and the show is ALMOST as campy as the LDS fraternity/sorority system. So it brings back happy collegiate memories for me.
For instance, the sororities and fraternities are always singing to each-other. This is a central part of LDS culture in general, but especially in fraternities/sororities. Does anyone else remember singing "Going to the Chapel" (but subbing in Temple, of course,) when a girl got engaged? And how secretly, amidst all the squealing and hugging, you could tell some of the girls were ticked it wasn't them? Girls who were 20 and 21 being ticked about their non-married state is still hilarious to me.
Also, mostly the show is cheesy and silly, but the Beaver character is a total secret minefield of awesome. Seriously, he steals every scene and makes the whole show. Oh Beaver, there's no crying in baseball!
Anyway, I watch a lot of TV, and I am not ashamed. In fact, I will draw a line in the sand and say we cannot be friends if you pretend to be totally above crappy pop culture. You don't have to like the Bachelor,(I'm dancing the song of my heart!) or Lady Gaga, or whatever, but you do secretly like SOMETHING even if it is just that one Top 40 countdown song from 2007. Saying you don't just makes you look uptight. And I'm an awesome friend, so don't make me draw that line.
In other world news, teaching is still going, and I find myself getting better everyday. Most of the time it is two steps forward one step back (today was rough,) but I keep telling myself that with time and practice, I will improve. Right now I think I am a decent teacher, but I want to be a really good teacher. So I will be. Someday. (This is my personal mantra, along with, "Peace in our Time," said somewhat ironically.)
I think I can, I think I can,
