Be Brave Enough To Start A Conversation That Matters

I got to leave work at 10:30 because prom was that night & as a senior sponsor I had to be there from 6:30-midnight.  Art Teacher (the other sponsor) & I left work, got our hair done, & then hung out in the awesome penthouse suite that the school got for us.  (IT WAS BIGGER THAN MY FUCKING APARTMENT!!)  Prom had it's ups & downs.  The students were all awesome...the faculty was not all awesome.  That is where I'm going to leave that one...

There was an original plan to go out that night but seriously eff that noise.  I was up until 3 am & had been surrounded by people all day Friday.  I wanted to be alone & relax.  I hung out at my favorite park for awhile, talked to both of my parents on the phone, & then lounged by the pool eating my Subway, working on a tan, & reading Lone Survivor.  I watched the latest episodes of Nashville & Hart of Dixie before passing out.

I finally got rid of a garbage bag of clothes/shoes!  I definitely need to go though more but it's a start!  I brought it to Goodwill.  I spent a couple hours by the pool getting my tan on & reading more of Lone Survivor.  If you haven't read it yet you need to.  I stopped at Walmart & Target to get a few things & by far my favorite purchases are my new planner & pens (Teacher/Blogger problems...)  For the most part I just spent my weekend relaxing & it was magical.
