Act like a real person

Today is a three-hour delay in my school district due to the threat of inclement weather. (And yes, I did say “threat.” That is a whole different story, let me tell ya!)

My favorite part of having a delay is that I get to act like a real person, with a real job!

I'm a real boy!

I’m a real boy!

I get to have my coffee!


Sweet nectar of the gods.

I get to read the latest news (in my case, geeky news). I recommend the Google Currents app for any tablet. It is beautiful to look at and very easy to use (which is good first thing in the morning).

Google Currents

A geeky way for a geeky guy to read the geeky news.

I even get to watch some funny YouTube clips!

But, the best part, hands down: I get to watch other people go to work as I do all of these things.

+1 for the teachers!



I have a unique perspective on teaching. As a young guy, I still have that “world is my oyster” perspective on life, so I am more than willing to try new things in the pursuit of happiness. I have always been a naturally happy person and don’t shy away from trying to make others see that it’s easy to be happy! Thus, the blog you’re reading. The main impetus for actually putting all the work in to getting this blog up and running? A coworker stopped me in the hall one day and actually reprimanded me for being so smiley all the time. They actually said that I shouldn’t be so happy as a teacher! My response? Screw that! I SHOULD be happy. I now smile at that coworker EVERY time I see them…and usually say something like, “Isn’t this such great day to be a teacher?!” They don’t usually smile back… Don’t be like them.
