Prom, Graduation, and the End of an Era

Today is the start of my final week teaching at Heritage High School in Baltimore City. I am a little overwhelmed with emotion, but mostly just a bit depressed. I still have grading to do, students to find that need to make up their final exam, and a classroom to pack up. There will be little time to get too

Scattered thoughts

Its been so long since my last post that I feel like I need to make a list of things that have happened. These may not be all be in order, but here goes: 1. I know the first thing that happened since I last posted was my night of drinking at max’s in fells point. I had been working

Lazy Days

The sun came up on Saturday morning to find me still awake from Friday night. The mist was rising off the ground making for such a cool scene: I felt no reservations Friday night for two reasons: (1) it was the first weekend since January that I’ve been in Baltimore and not had to work Saturday school or go to

Back to the Future…

…or present actually. No, really the past, because I just want to post about yesterday right now. I was supposed to catch up to the present by telling about my spring break adventures, but right now I’d just rather write about yesterday before I forget. Before I write about yesterday’s adventures, I want to preface this story by saying that

Another weekend…

Sunday. Another weekend passes by. Luckily, this weekend happened to be pretty fantastic. I would say that my weekend began on Friday. We had a half-day for students, half of which was classes and half designated for the Junior Inagauration assembly. I taught 3 35-minute classes, in which there were about 4 students per class. My students stared blankly at

Another weekend slips by. Above are some of my photos from today… a little random perhaps. The weekend started, I suppose, by going to the basketball game at school. Our school’s team is amazing, and they were clearly the dominant team in the game. After the game, I went to the Alien Workshop video premiere (the movie’s called Mindfield). It

Staying up all night so why not procrastinate…

No! No, no, no. How could they send Jamie home? Seriously? She was so amazing, and I just don’t understand. Okay, maybe… but I’m so upset about it. By the way, this is Top Chef that I’m talking about. Seriously, my favorite show right now. Jamie just got sent home and I really was hoping that she would at least

Same old, same old…

Starting right where I left off… Sunday was gorgeous. Seriously, it got up to 60 degrees and it was brilliantly sunny. What a perfect day to be outside. So what did I do? I went and skated Charmcity (indoor skatepark) where it was about 40 degrees and always seems to have that damp, cold feeling in the winter. At one

Snow Day

Finally! A snow day. I woke up at around 5am to check the news and there was nothing about Baltimore City. I was so disappointed. I went back to bed and woke up at around 5:40. I was about to get right in the shower, but then I decided to check the news one more time. And there it was,
