Mr. Moore

I just met a student today that knows "Mr. Moore." Mr. Moore is my friend Sean that I have known since elementary school. Sean now works at Health Careers High School as a teacher. Life has come full circle. Again.

Softey Tuup

The other night Sam called me a softey tuup. It was cute. It just a simple combiantion of soft and tuup....softey tuup. Its going to be my new word.
(PS the words soft and tuups or tuup are made up terms of endearment that our family uses. Tuup was made up by Steve. Soft is just a word where we changed the meaning. usage: You are such a tuup! You softey!)

right brain/ left brain

You Are 25% Left Brained, 75% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

If I were a candy heart I would say:

Your Candy Heart Says "Hug Me"

A total sweetheart, you always have a lot of love to give out.
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you've planned out

Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking

What turns you off: fighting and conflict

Why you're hot: you're fearless about falling in love

Laffey Taffey

Joke found on Laffey Taffey:

Question: What does a bee sit on?

Answer: His bee-hind!

I don't know why, but this just cracked me up.

Mr. Bento

Sam bought us these Japenese style lunch boxes that stack inside each other. He has been making lunches for us these past couple of days. The whole reason for this is that we need to eat healthier and not eat our lunch out. Anyway, the other day he cut my grilled cheese into a heart. Sooo cute!

Now I Get It

When people use to tell me about all the things that they were doing to their house and the projects they worked on over the weekend, I never really got it and it sounded boring. Now I get it. Its the joy of your own home and the fact that its yours to fix anyway you want.

On our street there are three families with little kids. One day I hope to be one of those families.

We are moved in!

So folks we are officially moved into the new house. The Labor Day weekend will mostly be us unpacking all the boxes in our garage. It's nice to be moved in and just hanging out. I found out that one of my former students that was in VOICES is living next door. In fact, one of the former VOICES officers had just moved out. It turns out that my new neighbor works at UTSA, too. So I will need to email her and say hi. Life comes full circle.

Super Hero powers

Your Superpower Should Be Mind Reading

You are brilliant, insightful, and intuitive.
You understand people better than they would like to be understood.
Highly sensitive, you are good at putting together seemingly irrelevant details.
You figure out what's going on before anyone knows that anything is going on!

Why you would be a good superhero: You don't care what people think, and you'd do whatever needed to be done

Your biggest problem as a superhero: Feeling even more isolated than you do now

Rain...Lots o Rain

It has pretty much been raining here non-stop. Dramatic thunder and lightening showers and quick steady afternoon showers. However it comes, it has just been raining a lot. I get excited when I see a peek of sun; only to have a giant grey cloud cover it up an hour later. With the rain, comes a refreshing cool that is highly unusual for a South Texas July, so in that sense its awesome.

fun quiz

You Belong in Barcelona

When it comes to Europe, you don't want to decide between culture and fun. You want art by day and a big party by night.
Barcelona is ideal for you. You can check out some Picasso, eat some tapas, take a siesta, and then dance all night!

I really did love Barcelona!

We found a house!

We officially own a house now. It is in Oxbow. The same neighborhood as my Aunt and Grandma. Grandma has recruited me for the Neighborhood Association. I guess it is kinda small and they are looking for people so I would not mind volunteering. It could be cool and you get to see the issues going on like rezoning, graffiti, and possible flood planes. Anyway, it sounds cool. So we will probably not really move in until after my brother's wedding in August. Sam and I sometimes go over there and just stand in it because we are so excited. It has 3 bedrooms, a two car garage and a fireplace. I will send pictures as soon as I upload them.

Travels and Adventures

So mom and Dad are in Africa. They got there minus the bags. Mom is actually going to a conference and Dad is coming..well...because Mom's conference is in Africa. Need I say more? I always wanted to go to Africa. I will go one day. I don't know when, but one day.

Sam and I are once again looking for houses. We are waiting to see if they will accept our offer. So this could be our house:

I know you should not fall in love with houses because this whole house buying business is fickle, as Sam and I have experienced first hand. I am emotional and I can't help it. I love this house! Ahhhh. so hopefully we can get it.

Well my brother is getting married and this weekend we are having a shower for he and his wife to be. It is going to be at Dave and Busters and should be really fun. I am excited for Steve and Claire and thier adventures together. I really like Claire.
The shower is a moment to be with the siblings again this month! We were together a couple of weekends ago for our cousin's high school graduation. I love it when we are all together and can hang out. Of course, when we all leave to go our sepereate ways, I really miss them. I don't think I realized how much I would miss my siblings until we all starting living in different cities. However, I am glad that we all make time to see each other regularly.

New Job

So May 7, I start a new job in Academic Advising. Specifically, I will be advising Freshmen. I am excited to embark on this new adventure. I also found out I know a lot of people that work in the office through various endeavors in my life. Of course, I will miss my students in Student Activities. I really enjoy interacting with them and watching them grow into wonderful human beings. I have been there for essentially seven years in the same position, so I have a lot of memories in that place.
