The Yadda Yadda Buffet: When you're down and troubled...

This is a reminder for all of us that we need to accept and learn from things that don't go the way we expect and then move on.

Saw a great movie - Bridesmaids - this weekend that fits this poster so perfectly.  I highly recommend it to gal pals out there, especially those who need a girls day out.  The main characters have been friends since elementary school and know each other better than they may know themselves.   One gets engaged and the other feels lost.  The movie is about reconciliation, both with each other and with the single friends feelings of loss, inadequacy, and pain.  Oh, yeah, did I mention that this is a comedy? 

I'm not a laugh-out-loud kind of movie goer, but this one had me chortling multiple times.   Grab your best girl and see this for a sweet bonding experience.  And "Hold On" for one more day!

The Yadda Yadda Buffet: Squeezing Blood from a Turnip

I'll be making less money next year.  Top that off with the fact that I can no longer move up on the salary scale unless I get a Ph.D., and for me,  teaching is looking less and less like the "cash cow" so many in America seem to think it to be.  Will I put in any fewer hours outside those required?  Unlikely.  Will I take on fewer responsibilities?  No.  Will I do less for my students with my own money.  Huh-uh.  I just can't in good conscience do those things.  But I'll take a pay cut nonetheless.

How many of you would do the same?

Come spend time in my classroom for a week with me and then tell me how easy my job is and how a pay is in line.  I dare ya.  No, I DOUBLE DOG dare ya!
