Things Teachers Should Add to School Supply Lists

Every year I go to office max and although I know exactly what I need, I still find my grade and pick up a list. I guess those sheets are vital for people who don’t care about school supplies but I’m pretty sure everyone loves skipping and singing through the aisles of office max looking for new pens and binders. That is not sarcastic, at all. This year I was picking out a pencil case and a girl about 7 with red hair looked at me like I was some type of weirdo for grabbing the same sparkly one as her. School supply shopping will never leave my heart and don’t any of you forget the joys of it. Anyways, back to my title that hooked you few people reading this into clicking it.

Additions to the list:

1. Chapstick.. I can not stress how many chopsticks I have in my bag, one because I need loaner ones when the unprepared colleagues ask to borrow them and two because once they reach the abyss of my bag I don’t really want to put it on my mouth again.

2. Deodorant.. Be honest, how many times a week are you in a rush and forget to apply deodorant? By lunchtime you are calling your mom pretending to be sick because everyone knows you have B.O. Simple resolution, pack a mini deodorant.

3. Gum… Although some schools are against it, hey you’re a kid it’s your time to shine in the phase of rebellion

4. Floss… That super annoying piece of pork in your molars from last night’s ribs, yep those few inches of floss will save your gums and embarrassment.

This basically turned into a toiletry list but there you have it!

Fair Fun

I can’t remember a year I’ve missed at the fair, and I definitely remember the year I was tall enough for all of the rides. It was third grade, I no longer needed my cowboy boots and high pony tail to cheat the measurements. I was 54 inches of pure awesomeness and ready to hit every ride until I threw up. This year I made the mistake of going on a new ride and ended up feeling sick for the next hour. Fireball was a great time as always, so many memories and germs. Nikki is not a fan of the fair so she was excited to go walk around and cool off. We both got some corn which was the highlight of my week. When we finished our corn we headed back over to find our friends and got a caramel apple with nuts on the way. We were so satisfied with our fair food that we decided to go on more rides. We spent a few hours and a lot of money at the fair but it’s a great tradition that always makes me reminisce of my childhood. If you haven’t been the the fair, you should decide to live and go.

MAD for Mad Lunch

Each second Wednesday of the month is a very special Wednesday. Not is Monday and Tuesday over, it’s also late start. If you’re a part of the MAD academy, Wednesday is even cooler. The special event that occurs is the MAD lunch. Even the VADA kids try to swoop in on our delectable delights. The bell rings and it’s a stampede, few deaths have a occurred, many cases of shin splints. RIP to those weaklings who probably didn’t have a good breakfast or didn’t have any protein from skipping the last MAD lunch. If you skip the lunch you are probably a tool and shouldn’t go to school. This weeks lunch was a bitchin burrito bar followed by a suave sundae setup. If you’re not a part of the super sick society of MAD you should pay members to be your friend in hopes their coolness will rub off on you. Here’s the link to the website if you want to drool over beautiful people. Check out my photos of my friends and ice cream, which is also my friend.

Shout out to the Moms who slave for us and provide us with feasts of freakin’ fantastical food.
