A Room with a View

Just got a call from my principal. She made me a little nervous. She asked how I was and then told me that at my school they follow the rule of seniority which means those that have been there longer get special privileges. I've only been there a year, so I'm wondering what I'm about to lose at this point? My room, my content area, my grade level,...? What is it? My mind is racing. And then she tells me that another teacher is leaving. This teacher had a room with a window - which is a huge deal. She told me I was next in line and I asked if I'd like to move. Of course I said yes. There are bookshelves in there, which I had requested for this year. I love the location of the desk. There are tables instead of desk, which something I want a lot of the time. I'm so excited. I want to go up and there and really take in my new room. Sure I've been in there several times, but now I just want to go soak it all in. This past year my room was sort of isolated from all the other teachers, now I'll be in the same hall as everyone else. This excites me because I feel like I'll finally be able to get to know some of the other teachers on my grade level.

Pool Party & Student Council

Okay, so we really enjoyed the pool party this past weekend. Liberty wasn't a huge fan of swimming, but she had fun all the same. These are a few pics from the day.
Today we had in-service at school. It was good. I learned several things I want to use in August. We will finish it tomorrow and I'm actually looking forwar to going back. The most exciting thing of the day - I'm the new Middle School Student Council Sponsor. At first I was just like what? You want me? But I'm very please that my principal and another teacher felt I was worthy of the job. I started doing some research as soon as I got home because I thought, I have no idea what I'm doing. Now I'm really excited. Andrew and I were talking about how to elect officer and select members, so I think I have that figured out. I found some good ideas online, and am definitely getting excited.
Sad thing of the day - Andrew left for San Antonio. :( He'll be back on Wednesday, but I still hate it when he is gone.

Oreos and Swimsuits

Okay for about the past week now I've been actively searching for a swimsuit for this summer. Do I need a new one? Of course not. I have enough to get me through the summer. However, I'm going to a pool party this weekend and on vacation next month, so yes I guess I do feel the need for a new one. I'm not sure why. I know that I hate shopping for them. In fact, swimsuits are my least favorite thing to shop for. I hate the way I look in all of them. I just really don't like my body. What I hate even more is that everyone thinks because I weigh 110 I look good in anything. Well, no I don't. I'm not even happy with the fact that I weigh 110. I'm sure some people are saying they hate me for saying that, and that's fine. You can feel that way. But here's the thing, this is the most I've ever weighed. I'm starting to get love handles which is totally not cool. While everyone else may see me as tiny, I don't. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I'm huge or anything like that. I'm just saying that like most other girls (or at least I think most other girls) I am not happy with my body.

With all that being said, now let me say that I'm sitting here stuffing my face with oreos as I type this. And double stuffed oreos at that. I know I shouldn't be eating them, but they are just so yummy. In fact, sugar is definitely one of my favorite ingredients for food. I know I'm going to be a fat diabetic in no time. :)
