I'm alive.

I teach for 8.5 hours everyday.  I spend the other 15.5 hours planning what to teach, preparing materials to teach with, talking to the parents of students I teach, learning how to teach, reflecting on what I just taught, trying to remind myself why I teach and sleeping.  As such, I'm not blogging as much I as I would like to.  My goal is to be back to regular posting by October at the very latest.  Luckily, I have the best friend and co-blogger in the world to hold it down for me while I'm trying to become a teacher.  Danielle is my heart.

However, there was an awards show on Sunday night and, although I didn't watch it, I did search US Weekly's website for pictures of the stars and starlets in their MTV best.  Unfortunately, their MTV best is actually the absolute worst.  I knew it would be bad, but I didn't know how bad until I actually started considering the Jersey Shore cast for my best dressed list.  It started with Britney looking ill-proportioned and just got worst from there, through Miley Cyrus' old-lady maxi dress, Selena Gomez's audition tape for the The Craft, and Katy Perry and Lady Gaga acting like themselves, before bottoming out at Nicki Minaj's ridiculousness.

In the end, there were only two that I ever thought were worth mentioning as best dressed, and they weren't even that great. Zoe Saldana looks chic and fun and I'm just a sucker for an Alaia (Katie Holmes).  Thank you Clueless obsession.

At least the VMA's provided us with the news of Jay and Bey's new baby and with this stunning Adele performance.  She is phenomenal.

  1. Adele is so bloody gorgeous and ridiculously talented! The outfits were so disappointing, couldn't agree more. Keep on truckin', er teaching, Kate! We need more dedicated and passionate teachers like yourself.

    P.S. Did anyone else feel like Lady Gaga was doing a (bad) Kenickie impression?? #awkward
