I love how backgrounds with writing look, so I wanted to include that when I made the banner for this site. I just couldn’t think of what to write. A rare idea popped into my head, and I decided to put quotes from students. Luckily, I had some written down from a while back, and they provided me with fun memories and a background.
As you all know, working with children gives you enough material that by the end of the year (month…week…day…), you can host a comedy special, thanks to those little gems. The problem is remembering them. I had every intention of writing down my students’ funny moments. Thinking about them always puts a smile on my face, But, as with my son’s baby book, these things fall by the wayside when other to-do list items take priority.
My next idea (I’m out for the next six months now. At least.) is to use this as a recording space, at least for quotes and general stories. Nothing too detailed, of course, out of respect for my students’ privacy.
This will last a month. Maybe. Then I’ll pick back up in a year, and the cycle will go on.
So here goes.
Brief background first: I’m in a special ed school, I get to work with all the students in the school.
Two weeks ago was a rough week for compliments for me. I was finishing my breakfast of champions, a Hershey bar, when a student walked in and told me I should probably visit the gym after school. Later that day, another student told me I should get my nails done because then I’d be prettier.
It didn’t end. The next day, a girl came up to me, patted my stomach, and asked how the baby was doing. I told her there was no baby. She patted my stomach again and replied, “Yes there is!”
Last week was better. A boy told me that he was sad he wouldn’t see me the next day because I’m “such a cute egg.”
I was wearing a brown, fake leather jacket the other day. A girl informed me that I am just like a celebrity, just like Pink. See, I’ve always known that I am quite celebritylike, and I was very happy that someone finally recognized this. I will keep wearing my worn and torn fake leather (not that I want real leather, not my thing) jacket until everyone else starts realizing this.
That was a nice turnaround.
Anyway, I have been a busy bee tonight. I worked on about ten different projects, but I did finish one, so I guess I can consider that progress. I did add two freebies to the store, so that was a good thing.
One I didn’t make a cover for. I had number do-a-dot pages hanging out in a folder, so I figured I would post them for free.
I was also playing around with doodling on the computer and made some stars, and those are free as well. Convincing myself that I need a drawing tablet. Argh.
Star Doodles (free)
Definitely want a drawing tablet. 🙂
