Can't buy me love...

So last night was great. Definitely beat all of my other Valentine's days. Derrick did the whole 9 yards.
1 dozen roses (pink and red)
Heart shaped box of candy
Stuffed animal
Crushed velvet gift bag that read "Hot Stuff" lol filled with Dove chocolate and gum
and a card.
Awe <3
He liked the stuff I got him too. Which I was glad, but he isn't hard to please. He said I could buy him a chicken a he would be happy (no, not the food. An actual barnyard alive chicken) of course I am NOT buying a chicken. Maybe for Christmas... Just kidding! After we did the whole awkward opening up each others gifts, we left to go eat our favorite Los Arcos! Then we went to visit Blake and Nakesha Lashae (who are not back together, but are still, you know, hanging out all the time and buying each other Valentine's). After all this we of course had to come back to my house to play wii! Where he beat me terribly at pretty much everything even though he just sits on the couch and moves his wrist as I stand up and actually try! But whatever I don't care. That night when he had left I still had to stay up to write that dumb hawk poem, and guess what it was almost 11 when I started on it. Not a surprise. It was over all a wonderful day though.
Today was also good. I now have 3 classes in a row that I don't really do much of anything. I stayed with my 3rd graders for most of that time, which I loved. When I got in there today they were all working on a math test. Not a hard test, just 11 problems on congruent shapes. Well... by the time I'm about to get ready to leave there is one little girl still hard at work on this test. It confused me because she is smart and she had been really working on this test. It is only her and I left in the room because everyone else had went to PE and Leah (the teacher) walks in and is surprised to see her, saying that she had told her she only had a few problems left. Leah picks up the paper to discover that the little girl has erased ALL of her answers! So what has she been doing for these what 3? hours you may ask? Writing and erasing and rewriting and erasing her name!!! She had done it so much that there was now a hole in the paper. Now why was she doing this? Her reply was "it looked ugly". Yea. Seriously. Tomorrow I'm going to start going over to the Primary school some to work with the littler kids. I need to see if working with babies is really what I want to do or if I'd rather work with the smart mouthed but can take care of themselves high schoolers. I just don't know. What I do know is that life is so much better when you don't have a math class :)
Peace out. (I don't think I've ever used that phrase before in my life hahahahahaha)

Chemistry Valentime

My chemistry valentime.
(so it doesn't really make sense cause I had to throw in chem terms)
I thought it was good :)
And I would show you the inside, but it wouldn't upload correctly.
So I'll read it to you.

Roses are Red
Neon is Bright
Thank you Mrs. Murray

Why I thank my chemistry teacher for finding me a boyfriend is a story for a different blog ;)
Oh and I've decided not to show you me Spanish valentime because it's not as good as this one.

I'm a blogger.

I think blogs might have been created just for me. There are just so many things that I like to talk about that not everyone wants to listen to. So this is perfect! Dear Kendra, thank you.
My life really isn't that interesting, interesting things do happen occasionally, but not often.
Today just might have been the best Valentine's Day I've ever had. I woke up this morning without having to hit the snooze button 72 times, which is a first in weeks! I wore my very cute Valentine shirt that Chelsea made me and a hot pink hairbow. I aide in the office in the mornings at school and I gave everyone who came in Hello Kitty Valentine stickers, and passed out Hello Kitty Valentine cards to people I especially like ;) In English I was given a poem about some hawk and have to write and essay on the meaning... oh yay just what I wanted to do at 11:00 tonight when I've put it off til the very last minute. I also applied to Gadsden State, don't really  know why because I will probably never go there (mom says Gadsden is scary and I'm never to go to college there), but hey if they give me 2 million dollars in scholarship and Snead only gives me 1 million, off to Gadsden I shall go! Oh, and a miracle happened today. My mom called and got me out of my very extremely hard AP Calculus class that I don't even have to take! A load has been lifted off of me. I wanted to do those ballerina-leap things down the hallways. My highlight of the day, however, is when I went to the 3rd grade class that I peer mentor for. I was so excited because I brought them all Valentines and candy and cute little stuff, and they were so happy. Some of them were even giving ME Valentines and they brought me stuff and were hugging me. I almost cried. Days like these are when I'm glad I've decided to go into education.
Quick story: One miserable, cold day I was late for school and threw on my clothes and ran out the door. I got to school and cried nearly all morning because they were not going to let me drop my math class (even though I have enough credits to graduate now!). Well I got all the way to 4th period when I see that I have a text message from my sweet little friend Kayla Long that read something along the lines of "I'm sorry you're upset and whatever is wrong I promise it's going to be okay. But you have on a brown boot and a black one." Oh yea. She was telling the truth. I had went for four hours without anyone telling me that I had on two different color shoes (and this is the girl who was voted Best Dressed!). It was already such a horrible day that was half over, so I wasn't going home to change. I go into Carla Long's 3rd grade class so I can vent to her, and as I'm walking out of the room a little girl says "Uhm...do you know you have on a brown shoe and a black one?" And I sighed and replied yes, yes I do. But the best thing happened after that when another little girl said "Well I think it looks COOL!" It made my horrible day a whole lot better.
Back to my day. I then go to Chemistry  and passed out the remainders of my candy, Valentines, and stickers. I think the Seniors were more excited than my third graders. And then I got to make Valentine Cards in Chemisty and Spanish!! I love when teachers let us have our Kindergarten moments. I shall take pictures of them and add. Now I am home and am ready to go to Los Arcos tonight with The Boyfriend and give him his present. I've never had a real dating boyfriend on Valentine's Day before and I have to admit I'm pretty excited. I'll update on how it goes and let you know if I'm up for doing it again next year :)
Now I must go play Just Dance 2 on wii.
