Since it's summer :-)
Things I am loving:
--> An all-night marathon of 'The Nanny' on Nick@Night
--> Finishing my first class in graduate school
--> Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
--> A kid in my summer school class who is overweight, socially challenged, and completely brilliant.
--> Watching my dog chase the laser around until he can barely catch his breath
--> Having total freedom to plan a ground-breaking curriculum for my hybrid writing class in the fall
--> The 4-5 hour happy hours with my friend Amy
--> Summer sunshine
Things I am hating:
--> The Justin Morneau commercials on the radio. It takes a lot for me to hate McDonalds, Morneau AND the MN Twins, but those commercials are doing a bang-up job.
--> The U of M sending me an email letting me know that, by the way, my instructor for my adolescent psychology class is changing effective July 19. Wha....?
--> I forgot to record Big Brother tonight
Clearly summer is much happier than it is hating. That's a good thing. Especially about the grad class: one down, a bunch to go, but I'm learning a lot that will already be put to good use in my classroom. Viva summer!!
