Things I learned I could do on NyQuil

I have been sick over the last few days and have spent a good chunk of that time hiberating and taking cold medicine. Over the last 2 nights I have been going the NyQuil route in hopes of sleeping enough to make it to work and actually be productive.

After taking said NyQuil I have come to some realizations about myself and my posible need to change my t.v. viewing habits.

See, I have been having weird dreams on the Quil. And by weird, I mean WEIRD dreams. For example:
~ I am pretty sure I could keep everyone in my school building safe if there were to be a zombie attack. That's right, a zombie attack.
~ I can travel through space and time via plasma.... while battling zombies.
~ I could turn my classroom into a cozy apartment (minus kitchen and bathroom) and live comfortably. The sad thing is, I could probably make that work. I have a comfy reading area, a t.v. with a DVD/VCR player, ample storage. I could make it work.
~ I can breathe underwater
~ I have mad fighting skills
~ I dream in the third person sometimes, 1st person in others. It is really weird when it happens in the same dream.
~ As Kratos I faught and killed Ares, for all you God of War 2 fans. Just last night I killed 'em.
Those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head. I am feeling better, but I still my try half a dose tonight. I wonder what I will dream?!?

I can't believe he said that!

So, I was walking towards my classroom this afternoon and saw a former student in the hallway outside his reading classroom. I asked him why he was in the hall. His response:

"I don't like reading. Reading's for rich folks"

I literally got a twinge down my spine from not only his hatred for reading but the horrible grammar!

I really hope he was joking around. I doubt it though.

Journal Prompt

Today in one of the language arts classes I teach we had this journal prompt on the board "When I look deep into the mirror I see....."

I thought it might be fun to do the journal as well.  This is what I came up with.

When I look deep into the mirror I see many things.

I see a wife, a friend, a lover and companion

I see empathy and understanding

I see a teacher, a role model, a confidant

I see stress and depression

I see a knitter, a crafter, a jeweler

I see potential 

I see flaws and imperfections

I see olive green eyes hidden behind glasses

I see messy curly hair with hints of gray

I see a smart ass, a joker, a goofball

I see happiness, good karma, contentment

I see the woman I have become

I see the girl who uses the phrases "Wicked Painful" or "Weak" when something goes wrong

I see me

I'm o.k. with that

So, what do you see when you take a long look in the mirror?
