Challenge: Try not to laugh

There is absolutely no reason for this post except to share this with you:

Before you hit play, take a few deep breaths. I challenge you not to laugh.

Prepare to fail.


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.

      Haha! I seriously think I completely ruined all productivity this week at my school by sharing this with my coworkers. My bad.

      Um. I already added you on my blog. Without permission. So yeah, go ahead. 😉

      Still think you’re basically like a blog celeb, btw.
