To Sir, With Love

Today I have the song "To Sir With Love" stuck in my head. Perhaps its because I like that song, perhaps its because I love that film, or perhaps it's because I'm about to watch Glee (and they did a rendition of that song, you know). Anyway, there are so many "sirs" that have helped me get to where I am now, a college grad searching for a job, and I'd like to thank them. My parents, of course, for being there for me always; Mrs.Pedersen for teaching me how to read; Mr.Boebinger for reminding me that I love to learn and for making learning fun; Mrs.Cady for being a super sweet and relaxed 6th grade teacher after the monster of a woman I had for 5th grade; Mr.Abbott for encouraging me to write and making each class a wonderfully goofy experience; Mrs.O'Daniel for teaching me new writing methods and always remembering me; Mr.Hazen for making me love history; Mrs.Parizek for forcing me to write and giving me all those great books to discover; Ms. Reynolds for making me obsessed with art history; and Shari for being the sweetest human I've ever met and making me love PR even more. I just wanted to say thank you for helping me along my journey towards graduation and beyond. For you all, here's a song!

Those schoolgirl days, of telling tales and biting nails are gone,
But in my mind,
I know they will still live on and on,
But how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try,

If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters,
That would soar a thousand feet high,
To Sir, with Love

The time has come,
For closing books and long last looks must end,
And as I leave,
I know that I am leaving my best friend,
A friend who taught me right from wrong,
And weak from strong,
That's a lot to learn,
What, what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start,
But I, would rather you let me give my heart,
To Sir, with Love

random tidbits of news

I realize that I neglected my BEDA duties following Easter and ending with my birthday celebrations over the past weekend. Sorry!! Even though I didn't finish BEDA, I did really enjoy blogging so often. It makes me feel more creative when I have to come up with something readable for my audience (giant audience of 5, that's right). So I''m gonna start using this thing more consistently. I've also decided to join the rest of my generation and start using my TWITTER more regularly too :)
Side note: I've decided that I'm not going to address the Osama being shot deal on here because even though I'm living through a momentous time in history, I agree with the quote said by a facebook user/MLK jr. "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. 'Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that'" and we're gonna leave it there. Instead, I want to mention that, come June 1st, I'm going to be starting my own "Happiness Project" and I will be partially keeping track of it on here.
In other news, I made a profile for this free geek dating website and I think that I sound super pretentious/exactly like an english major in my 'about me' section. Editing that is next on my to do list. Ciao!!
