Hey again non-existent readers! Been a bit too long, apologizes for the absence.

Previous week has been a lazy and busy one. Got the first college football tailgating under my beslt at the GVSu home opener Saturday. GREAT time, it always is. Nothing better than a gorgous fall day with friends, beverage of choice in hand, coolin' in a bag chair. Great win over the hated Sagnasty Valley State Cardinals, great bonfire afterwards in Allendale.

Started substitute teaching again last week after a summer off. My re-introduction was easy enough. A simple afternoon with 1st graders, the teacher assistant/student teacher in the classroom was doing all the lessons, so it was really a breeze. This week will not be such a vacation however. I have a full week at a very difficult elementary school, and today proved just that. You can't help what environment these kids have at home, what values they're taught. It just really bites the dirt when they don't care no matter the consequence. Especially at that young of an age. We just do the best we can with what we are given.

More news of interest, I officially signed up for Linkedin this morning! I don't yet have a full understanding of the website, or everything I want to have on there yet, but it's great for making connections! Employers are all over it right now, so there's the "hot tip" of the day, even if I am a few months late on the bandwagon.

Stay safe kids! Play hard-play fair. Remember, always keep your stick on the ice!
