Oh hi there! So despite my superstitions regarding 2011, it seems that this year is off to a really good start! Home teams were announced and I am on the team I wanted to be on (Babes of Wrath just sounds so much more fierce than Cannery Rollers--though both are rad names), even though I feel that their team is stacked compared to ours. Aaaaand, I made the All-Star Travel Team! In addition to that, my 7th graders are still pretty cool, and there's a chance they're switching my 4/5th period class from the stupid scripted program to a transitional 7th grade class that uses the core curriculum. SCORE! I was also appointed as the head Fresh Meat coach for the league :) And and AND I have three TA's this semester, so I have less work to grade--only the really important assignments.
Despite the grading I have looming over me at the moment, I am in a cheery mood. I woke up and went on a 7 mile skate with some of my girls along the coastal rec trail under a gorgeous sun and beautiful weather, had a good lunch with my Fresh Meat committee, shopped a little with Rack, and really just enjoyed this gorgeous Saturday. Later, I'm going salsa dancing for the first time to celebrate the birthdays of two of my derby girls. I hope you all are enjoying your weekends just as much <3
