Posting is going to be cut off for the time being until August, because I’m really in crunch time to finish a bunch of assignments and take two really big tests in July before I can start doing my student teaching and get my credential. There are a lot of things I want to cover, but I just can’t do all things correctly. Something has to give, and I’ve worked too hard in school to not finish.
Quickly though, I strongly suggest that you become known for something positive. Case in point, there is this little restaurant that I like to go to with my wife (I use the term restaurant loosely). We’ve been going for years. I used to be known for getting a particular order that was less than healthy. I’ve mentioned that I’m fat, but since my wife and I have started going to the gym, we (sort of) reward ourselves by going back to this place once a week and getting salads. We always get the same salads, and they are pretty good.
Because of a recent tomato/salmonella scare, we haven’t been in about a month. Since we couldn’t find a place we liked better, we finally went back, and the girl at the counter didn’t miss a beat: She just asked me if I was getting something different than the regular.
You know what? It feels pretty good to be known as the salad guy at a restaurant instead of the chilli cheese fries guy.
Nothing about finance, just a little bit of “I had a good day.” Wish me luck on the CSET and the PRAXIS, as well as in staying sane while doing a butt-load of written assignments, and I’ll see you again in August!
