I'm feeling frustrated.
I'm feeling frustrated by people who have nothing positive to say. By people who really have no consideration or compassion. By people who are unappreciative and quick to judge. By people with poor attitudes and even poorer character.

I'm feeling frustrated by life's circumstances that continue to keep me up late at night writing endless papers about why P.E. is so darn important, and about how to teach a class of first graders how to sing a silly song about elephants, and about the different types of conflict in education. Isn't conflict just conflict? Seriously, why does it need so many sub-categories?

I'm feeling frustrated by the e-mails that are piling up in my inbox, waiting to be returned. If only I had more time. If only I didn't have to work and go to school and this and that and the other thing.

Oh, and I know what some of you are thinking... "well, you don't have kids to raise... you've got it EASY!"
I beg to differ.

All I really want to do is run. In all honesty, that's it. I want to strap on my running shoes, and hit the trail. That's how I channel this frustration. But, seeing as it's 10:00 at night, this blog will have to do for now. Until the sun shines again, and the new day shows it's glorious face...
So I'm feeling frustrated by life. Frustrated by people. Frustrated by the darkness that steals my running from me. Why can't I just have two more hours of daylight? Is that so much to ask?

Fact #84

It's Wednesday, and I'm back to the land of the living! The past three days have consisted of DayQuil, NyQuil, cough drops, orange juic, kleenex, chicken noodle soup, and sleep. Lots of sleep. I'm one of the lucky ones who didn't get the throwing-up-for-24-hours sickness. I just got the no-voice-hacking-cough-runny-nose-body-ache sickness. Big difference.

Anyhow, God's been doing some crazy stuff in me lately. He's been reminding me of the life I lived before Him, and the people who have helped me in my journey so far. I love how He does that, how He humbles us. That's exactly what He did on Sunday night... crazy story. That's for another blog.

This blog is to proclaim that I'm pretty awful at blogging. I get GREAT ideas for blogs, but the second I sit down in front of my computer, I freeze up. My mind seizes, goes blank... you get the idea. SO, I've decided to go a different route with my blog. I'm a real big fan of random and useless information. A REAL big fan. My main source of this useless information comes from the lids of Snapple cans. I'm not a huge fan of Snapple itself, so I just look the info up on the internet. I know, I'm a cheater. Oh well. So, here's my first useless face, and surely not my last.
