what's something that always brings sunshine to your days?
elviajedelaesperanza asked

Three things really:

  1. Usually, my bus rides to school. I usually just shut the world out, say a few things to myself (usually a prayer of some sort) and listen to upbeat songs to psych myself up for the day.

  2. E-mail threads with some of my closest friends/Facebook messenger. Keeping things light and enjoyable. Helpful mental break from the school day.

  3. That 30-seconds right before you fall into sleep when everything seems peaceful and nothing is crazy.

Really stressful day at work.

Really. Exhausted to the point that I cancelled all my plans to… look at more teaching stuff.

Ask me?

Cliche ahead, beware: If you were stranded on a deserted island, who is the one person you'd prefer to be stuck with? Also, what five objects would you want to have in your possession? Also, you have one CD that skips and only plays one song well... what song is it?

Love this question. Sooooooooo…

1) Not sure at this point. Debating on which point of my life I’m in, probably a person who I’m dating for more than 3 months for companionship or one of my best friends. That is totally vague, I’m so sorry, ha.

2) A tablet with a solar-powered battery, a wi-fi connection within one of the coconut trees, at least 20 of my favorite books, a body pillow, and a sheet that will prevent me from getting sand everywhere when I sleep.

3) Probably “B.O.B.” by Outkast. Not one of my favorite songs ever, but it’s the most interesting song I’ve ever listened to. I won’t get too tired of it… and I’ll actually remember the lyrics!

Just purchased and customized my fourth jersey for Heather O’Reilly!

The other three? Kelley O’Hara, Sydney Leroux, and the original, Megan Rapinoe.

Ready for June 2015.

NYC #education gathering!

aestover91:

itsssnix:

I know we talked about doing this, but it’s coming up closer, so let’s make it happen!

2 things:

How about brunch on Sunday, October 12th? Anyone have a suggestion of a place to meet?

Can I crash on someone’s couch/floor on Saturday night? I’d rather not spend unnecessary $ if I can avoid it. :)

Send me an email at itssnix [at] gmail [.] com if you are interested in either of these so we can make our plans privately and not so publicly. :)

I AM SO GOING TO THIS!!!! I have been waiting for this for forever! Any other NYC Tumblr educators?

Can literally any NYC teacher come to this?? I’m a first year teacher who desperately needs more teacher friends ;A;

BLAH, the NYC Tumblr educator meet-up is happening next weekend… the same weekend I’m at NYCC.

Whoever goes, enjoy!

Hanging out in my new apartment and relaxing. Almost completely unpacked but major major thank yous go out to @loumovesyou for his crew being quick but also safe while it poured outside. They come with my highest recommendation!

There were at least 25 middle-aged white people standing outside my apartment, a few with cameras. I assume either they are on a tour of Harlem or that I accumulated a small 40-year-old and above fan base…

Day 95: So today, Sarah is on her way to San Francisco to start up a new job and this is a picture from last night at Glasslands. Sarah, it’s been an incredible two months getting to know you from having more Ranch than most people have in a lifetime to surviving Staten Island numerous times. You are going to do unbelievable things with your coding talents on the west coast, of this I have no doubt.

You will be missed, quite a bit in fact but if (and maybe, when) you’re back in NYC, I can’t wait to hear about why NYC is still superior, ha. I kid, but still, I wish you the greatest amount of success and hopefully, I’ll see you sooner rather than later. =)

*blows dust off of my Tumblr*

bniche:

Man, I haven’t posted in here in a while.

Wow.

Oh well, still won’t, ha.

But I still read all your posts! I’ve just been really busy, seriously.

Also, strangely enough, I’ve posted on my Facebook a heck of a lot more than Twitter/Tumblr, so if anyone wants that linkkkkk… or to be a FB friend for some reason… just ask.
