Another senseless killing

So last night some psycho walked into an LA Fitness facility, in my town, went into an aerobics class and started shooting the women who were taking the class. Honestly, what is this world coming to? Now we can't even go to a gym without being afraid...what's next? Four women were killed and the shooter killed himself. I don't agree with suicide in the slightest but if he wanted to kill himself, fine, but why shoot innocent people?? They had nothing to do with this or his problems! I'm only twenty five--I plan on raising children someday...what kind of world am I going to raise them in? It makes me so sad and afraid. We just have to trust that God has a plan for everyone....

school in April

So I'm a teacher--an elementary librarian. And it is only April. And it is 80 degrees out. And there is no air conditioning. And the kids think it's summer already!!

It is so hard to get their attention when all they want to do (and me!) is to go outside and enjoy the good weather. As much as I dislike the rain and chilly weather, bring it on!! We still have a good month of school left and a lot to learn. There is no way this is going to happen with the mindset these kids have here's to the sun staying hidden behind the clouds for a few more weeks...

Fallen Officers

I've been watching the procession on the news and I went to Tom's diner to donate money to the fund for the families...I just wish that this wasn't happening. I don't understand why there is so much senseless killing going on. That kid was 23--his whole life is over...does he get that? That Jordan Brown that killed his dad's girlfriend and her unborn child was 11--his life is over. What is wrong with these people?? I mean, I know how corny this is...but seriously, can't we all just get along?? Think about how beautiful the world would be and how peaceful our lives would's sad that it's hard to imagine...

Guiding Light is cancelled!!

Okay, so I know that it's just a soap opera....but it's a soap opera I've been watching since I was in 5th grade!!! Today they announced that CBS's longest running drama has been cancelled after 72 years and over 15,000 episodes between radio and tv. As sad as I am about my favorite soap being over, I'm happy that I've been able to watch the characters and storylines grow as long as I have. I'm proud to have been a fan of something so special for so many generations of viewers. :(
