Whewwwwwww fell off a couple days but I'm back!

ALRIGHTY.

Today is my lazy Sunday. Its been raining all last night and this morning. I've made some breakfast and would like to tell you what I ate:

BREAKFAST SALAD:
1 sliced cucumber
1/4 tomato
3 turkey bacon slices
Egg whites
speared indian sauce
drizzle of flax seed topping
corn and black bean topping

---

Smoothie!
1 banana
3 strawberries
1/2 avocado
10 small pieces of pineapple
1/4 apple

---

I was full to say the least.

I do want to plan my day and I realize --- will I have time to finish the following?

1. Lesson Plan
2. Read Rich Dad Poor Dad
3. Finish reading Learning How to Walk (by Cornelius Lindsey)?
4. Start my application for this gig
5. Watch American Civil War youtube videos for my kids this week
6. Finish progress reports
7. Meeting with counselor

Whew. My. LIFE.

And yesterday was bananas... I felt extremely oppressed and it felt so negative.
I was spearheading Saturday school and the kids were pretty annoying to say the least. Then I had some time to lesson plan and kick it. After, I went to watch SELMA with my students. After, I bumped into EmChen and her friend. We had shared tears after watching the film. Later, they left me and I was in Chipotle with a group of pre-pubescent children. It was...too funny. I had many laughs and I do cherish these moments outside of school grounds. I will say, its amazing to see my students as people and not these "robots" that I feel the American school system tries to create. They are all unique people.

And my acne has cleared up. :) I've been using Benzoyl Peroxide and the Burt's Bee line (the exfoliator wipes are handy when I'm too lazy to wash my face).

Lastly, I need to get the FIRE in me before I go to church. I need JESUS. SERIOUSLY.

I don't want to be the church pew hugging christian anymore. I want to be more bold in my walk. And I've been pushed last week to speak my mind. Luckily, Natasha has been a great help.
