Tuesday thoughts


Tonight is my last class of the semester. Next week is the final. I can't believe how fast the semesters fly by. I also can't believe that I've been teaching for two full years now. That is crazy town.
Sometimes, mid-lecture, I realize that a class full of students are looking up at me and listening to me because I'm their teacher. That's when I think to myself, "Woah. Who OK-ed me to teach college!?" Jeeze louise. 

But seriously, I love teaching college. 

I recently discovered the song "Defying Gravity" from the Broadway show, Wicked, and have basically listened to nothing else for the past 72 hours.

Yesterday, I wore a really darling outfit. Dah-ling, I tell ya. 
And here's a secret: 
Sometimes I think about doing outfit posts.
Then I remember that 1. I don't have a camera nicer than my iPhone, 2. Pics of me come out weird about 82% of the time, and 3. I'm not sure I'm emotionally ready to cross the bridge into outfit posting land. And I'm pretty dang sure Chas isn't ready, either.
So let's just have this all be our little secret, k? 
You know nothing. 

Ok, that's all for now. 
Thanks.

Do outfit posts, please! They would be adorable. And iPhone photos are perfectly acceptable.

Congrats on your last class tonight! I'm sure it's going to be bittersweet for you! I highly suggest a outfit post. I don't have a nice camera either but hey...we can try right? hehe xoxo

Diana Smith said...

yay aren't you glad school is almost over! I sure am. I am not going back in the fall so its going to be nice to have a really long break!! But I guess I am not going to since I will be having another baby haha

Rachael said...

You're funny :)
I bet you look cute in your clothes! You should try it and see what response you get.

Abby said...

I feel the same way about outfit posting... I'll do it every once in awhile an I ALWAYS feel like a poser. haha And I love that song too. I love the glee version and will listen to it over and over again until husband begs me to listen to something else :)

I have been listening to defying gravity a lot. So much my oldest gets upset when she hears me turn it on or say "I hope you're happy now" and my 2 year old will finish off when I say, "I hope..." and in his adorable 2 year old voice "happy now!"

Bon Bon said...

I bet you have such a fun/interesting class! Ummm, darling outfit!? I'm intrigued:-) xoxo

hi! :) I found your blog through "Pages of Me" and I'm hooked! I think I read 3 or 4 pages straight. I love the pictures, the funny posts (which is pretty much all of them) and the stories about you and your husband :)

Oh, and you also have my two dream jobs (professor and art therapist).

Your blog is awesome :) Followin' it!

Laura Nelson said...

this pic is super super doooper cute! :) love your tights :)

i feel the same way about outfit posts...i tried doing a few last week and it just wasn't me. i just can't justify posing in front of the camera. but i do love those girls who can...

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} said...

I'm the same way. I mean, kudos to people who do. But there is a reason they post them and I don't. The reason is I'm not cool enough to be "that kind" of blogger...

Not that you have that problem...

kylee said...

you would rock the outfit posts for suuuure.

lindsay fisher-collie said...

you should definitely give outfit posting a try! it can be pretty fun/exciting trying something new :)

Rachel said...

Haha I get like that too! But I have decided to leave outfit postings for other people...it is not for me! definitely.

Cassie said...

Both of your shoes match, and they're lovely... little bits of matching make me smile. Tons of over-the-top matching; however, sometimes scares me, unless it's to be silly. Just didn't want you to think I'm one of those "let's match everyday" people. Thanks for making me smile!
also, I bet you would wear cute outfits a lot, and I'd like to see them

Maria said...

I love love love your shoes! I bet your class is so fun! I'm in my second semester of college now, toying with the idea of teaching college (I'm now in a program where I can definitely teach high school).

I am pretty sure I am jealous of you, y'know, living my dream and all...

leigh said...

Awe! Outfits posts are SO stinking fun to look at, but definitely kind of hard to create.
You teach college?! What class? That's one of my goals in the future. How do you like it?! We must talk.
