Oops almost forgot

Whoops, I completely forgot that I even have a blog, not that anyone reads it. Blogs are meant for artists, speakers, activists, religious buffs, and anyone with a strong determined mind. No wonder I have one follower... my mother, who is of the above, an artist. She has a reason to blog, she has motivation from the very bosom of inspiration from the paint that flows from a brush and the pigment that appears on a page. Me I'm just a kid who likes to write, but whilst I have been busy in school I have learned where I want to go in life. I am going to be a teacher, a High School history teacher to be specific. I have been taking this wonderful class called Teachers For Tomorrow, or TFT for short, we learn about what teaching is all about and how we as teachers make a difference in the world. Once a month we visit a middle school and talk to the kids about developing their attitudes towards their higher education system. Sounds boring but we are always doing activities that give them a break from (in my case) a boring math class, and gives them time to find good things about school.

I constantly enjoy my class, I share the class with my assigned partner and friend. We've gone a total of two times this year so far, only starting in November and I have learned that my class will always respond when they get too loud if you whisper ,"if you can hear me clap your hands". it makes them pay attention and listen closely because it gives them an excuse to clap their hands. I know because it  worked when I was younger, I would always wait for when the teacher would say it so I would be the first to clap.

Aside from my new career choice, not much has been going on, just the usual holidays events. Last night I was at my family gathering for the holidays and my cousin Gin and I were sitting in the Kitchen singing "Last Christmas, I gave you my heart..." it was fun because we only know the chorus of the song and the rest we made up due to the lack of words.

Well I guess that's all I'm going to say for this year! <3 Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays and a happy new year!! ^.^
