09:22 am: Summer Break Boredom
Hey everyone-

I decided to make a video blog of my summer vacation. Go to http://www.youtube.com/user/MitchElatkin and you'll find all my videos. Please watch them as they are somewhat entertaining. This is what happens when you give teachers 8 weeks off. Hope you watch them all! :) Until next time...

11:15 pm: Getting Older...
Everyday I feel achy. I don't know what the issue is. I think I need a new mattress. I'm so uncomfortable all day. Sleeping is not exciting anymore because I always wake up in pain. It really sucks. AND I think my thumbs are fucked up from texting so much. I hate this. 26 go away. I want to be 22.

03:48 pm: Another day of summer break...
Not much going on lately. I went to my parent's last night after 6 weeks of not seeing them. We got into a little spat that lasted a month. All is well again. No concerns. We went to dinner and then watched the BET awards. I about freaked out when TLC performed together again. It's been over 3 years since they last performed together. I loved it. I miss watching them on TV.

Patrick is coming over tonight. Ok he comes over almost every night. It's all good. We are doing well. We have a few spats here and there but over all it's a very functional relationship.

I added the performance with TLC from last night. Check it out. It was kind of sad seeing them without Left Eye.

Also I'm newly obsessed with www.linkedin.com. So if you're on that site, add me to your network. Until next time...

10:53 am: Revision from last post...
My roommate had a peace offering yesterday. I accepted. I hate conflict. It makes everything very awkward and uncomfortable. We are going to hang out for a little bit when she gets home from work.

This is my third week off and I'm getting kind of bored. It's totally uneventful. I need to find something to do to spice it up. I woke up super early today for no reason and I went to bed at 3 am or so.

I have no exciting news so I'll keep this short. Until next time...

05:01 pm: Since MySpace has exited my life...
Hey Everyone-

I decided to use LiveJournal again since I deleted my MySpace page. It's all dumb. I lost my job at NewHope Academy because the administration is afraid of the unknown. They called me a "risk" and because I have "boundary issues." It's all bogus. They use boundary issues as a way to protect themselves but have no real definition of it. Like I said it's bogus. PLUS, everyone knows my principal Brandy was behind everything. Talk about 2 faced. Oh well, I'm done from there now.

I finished the school year at my old high school Rolling Meadows High School. It was stressful but it was cool working with my old teachers. For the fall I accepted a job at Golder College Prep. I'm super excited and it's more more money than what I was making.

I also have a boyfriend. His name is Patrick. He's great and really good to me. We've been together about 6 weeks now and I'm very happy. We've had a few disagreements but it's all part of being in a relationship. He's really awesome.

I'm on summer vacation until August 4th. I hate having a lot of time off but then again once I start working again I'll hate that I said that.

I live in the Andersonville neighborhood now. I moved from Lakeview in May. The apartment is so nice but my one roommate refuses to clean and uses work as an excuse. UNACCEPTABLE!!! Nonetheless, I hope she gets this job in Nashville so I can live in a clean apartment.

I think that's about all for today. Until next time...

10:20 pm: Loosen up my buttons...
Manda and I realized that Doogie Howser was the first confirmed blogger in our modern time. He used to blog at the end of every episode. Something to contemplate...

I had a 13 1/2 hour school day today. It was so long and I'm exhausted. I had to deal with some crazy kids today. It was odd. Ok it's not odd, I'm a special ed teacher. Then I had open house tonight where I had to talk to parents that were just as off the wall as their children. I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

I just opened my grad class and after 3 assignments, I have a 100%. I just got a 60/60 on my research analysis paper. Those are so hard to write so I'm happy that I got such a good grade.

Anything else....hmmmm...it got cold really fast this fall. I'm happy. My apartment was a steam bath this summer. I finally got to take the air conditioner out of the window. That's all for tonight. Until next time...

Why is Beyonce so wonderful?

To lesson plan or not to lesson plan...
that is the question...

I just finished having my new favorite snack, graham crackers with cool whip. It's absolutely delicious. I get the low fat whip and low fat crackers to make sure I don't become a total hog.

Lisa and I had a new creation in lunches yesterday. It's called a pizza bowl. It was impressingly delicious. I need to get another one very soon. I could get addicted to them. Yum yum... LOL normally it would be aggravating if I read someone's blog and they wrote "yum yum" so I had to check if I could annoy myself. I certainly did. :)

My current dilemma is as follows: Why am I so moody? I can't seem to find the cause. Veronica says it's because I'm a woman and/or closeted transgender but I think the transgender part is pushing it. Maybe I do have a period I just haven't figured out exactly when it occurs. Any answers, please share.

I'm going to lesson plan, or at least that's what I plan to do. Until next time...
