Baaaaaack

I'm so sorry for my blog-cation. I have been way overwhelmed with the move and the new job. I just moved into my new apartment on Friday, and I'm still living surrounded by boxes and chaos, but overall I'd say I'm happy. I've been struggling a lot with feeling inadequate and being-- oddly-- the only woman in the English department. English was always a touchy-feely subject for me, whereas the other members of the department are rather no-nonsense, but I'm given the freedom to do what I like, for the most part. My kids are sweethearts. And now it's momentary rest time, before I begin planning like crazy again. PS, during my next unit for the 9th graders, I intend to show clips from both Amelie and Stranger than Fiction in the same day! Better than Bavarian sugar cookies, indeed...

Due to the fact that I have yet to see (500) Days of Summer, I am completely obsessed with this video - it has made me want to see it even more than before. Love it. :)

I'm so glad things are working out! I absolutely adore stranger than fiction! really the perfect film for any reader and/or writer! "hell you could spend the rest of your life just eating pancakes!"
"who in their right mind would choose pancakes over life?"
"that depends on the quality of the pancakes and the life being led"
