Random mind dump!

Oh I have so many thoughts right now, all unrelated. prepare for a mind dump! Maybe this will help me calm down!

1. People in charge should stop being stupid and making stupid decisions.

2. If your pregnant, this week is official announcement week. ( if your my friend apparently) I already have had 10 different announcements and its only Thursday.

3. I have a few really good friends. I'm thankful for them.

4. If you have a problem with me or something I said/did tell me not someone else! Lame sauce!

5. I miss my family!

6. I wish I wasn't so kind anymore. Sometimes I wish I could rewind to the me of 5 years ago and go on a tirade right now!

7. Stop choosing to be offended. It's petty and only makes you seem whiny, needy, and annoying.

8. I hate passive aggressiveness. Say what you mean, mean what you say. Don't say I don't have to come when you'll be upset if I don't show up.

9. Stop judging me and then telling me about your judgements of others.

10. I love blogging.

11. I hate standardized testing for measuring what students know and what teachers have taught. I taught a kid to read this year, but they won't pass the test. So glad I spent my time with him anyway... Because that's what will matter in 10 years!

12. Education in America is broken. And decent teachers should be fleeing, if we'd only do what was best for ourselves.

Well, my mind is finally empty. Hopefully I can stop feeling so dang anxious, today!

I think that I'm pretty safe to say that these don't apply to me:)! So let me know if I can help...especially if you need to hurt someone:)! Or maybe you should just come see me:)

I agree with all of those! Especially #5! I love being back in Indiana, but it's just not the same without you all here, too!

I also agree with Lindsay! ;) Call me if you need to vent! Love you girl!

Being a teacher, I feel the same way as you right now. I wish that I could tell a few people where to go and what I think. But I am new so I have to bite my tongue.

It was so great to see you a week or so ago. I hope to be able to come down more and visit more. Miss seeing you all.

I so agree with your last two comments. I have been saying we really need to revamp the whole education system. Wish I lived in Finland...their teachers have degrees equal to doctors and lawyers, only the best of the best are selected to be teachers, the kids are bilingual and sometimes trilingual by the time they are 12! And they have THE HIGHEST scores out of the world and more of their students graduate than the US. That, for us, is sad.
