From Eighth Grade Science Class

I still haven't found a fabulous job here, but I do like what I'm doing alright. For right now I'm waitressing and substituting, in fact I'm subbing right now. I'm in the middle of a planning period and I just felt like blogging, there must be something wrong... ;)

Today I'm in middle school, at a school that I'm in pretty often. Most often I'm in the 6th grade however. I think it is interesting how different kids react to having a substitute and the different relationships that you build with kids. Some kids think "I'll never see her again, let's just fool around", while other kids automatically add you to their school world and expect you to be there from now on. Those are the kids I like :) It feels good to be liked, to have the kids be happy YOU'RE there, not just happy that a sub is there. Yeah for loving middle school kids!

Alright, though I'm really in the mood to blog, I'm afraid I have nothing to say, so perhaps I'll think of something during lunch.. until then I leave you with the words of the Christmas song that has been in my head for days on end

"I want a hippopotamus for Christmas, only a hippopotamus will do. No crocodiles or rhinosceroses, I only like hippopotamuses. And hippopotamuses like me too!"
