I was quite depressed last week, thus that wonderful "no comment please" post. I am currently feeling better than last (good...bad...not sure). Still slightly depressed...what can I say? That is how I feel. Takes a while and with the holiday season literally breathing down my back...can you blame me?

I gave a math test today and my students.... ugh! There, that's all I can say. I have another one of those infamous bubble sheet tests coming up and I am a tad stressed out over it. Why? Well, they actually ("they" being the administrative team) will use the results from the test to determine "student growth." Bull shit if you ask me. Those bubble sheet tests are as reliable as a wall of shit against a fire hose! Bottom line, if you know what to look for, any Tom, Jane, or "Rover" can pass it (hear the angry in my voice?!?!?!).

My students are progressing in their reading, though not enough. I just discovered that my students need to jump 3 more reading levels before the end of 2nd grade! Eeeek.

Enough about school. Love...ha! What's that? Nope, none here. Oh well.

Movies. I went to watch "Madagascar 2." Now, I want to "Move it move it!"

I didn't know that Bernie Mac passed away. I was a bit shocked by that information, especially considering the fact that he was a voice talent in the movie. Sheesh. That's what sucks about aging... people keep dying on you! I remember a time when I thought I would live forever. ha!

I received a letter about "life" insurance in the mail today. Yeah, that sounds like a plan... too bad I don't have a family to be a beneficiary. So, if I die, what? Give it to my cat? She would still need someone to actually take care of her. Ugh. Seriously... life is just... lame.

I was going to write something else... totally forgot what though. Don't you hate that? It was like right on the tip of my tongue too. I turned to say something to my friend and then... POOF. The thought completely evaporated.

Oh well. I shall try to post again later... if I remember. If not.... I will try to think of something to do. I want to make this a bit more... exciting to read for you all.

Thanks for reading the wild ramblings of a mad sadman!

Those bubble sheet tests shouldn't be the only determiner of a child's progress, I never really thought they were accurate when I took them in elementary school.

I don't pay attention to celebrities that much. One day the TV did a tribute to Bernie Mac and I was like "he died?" I don't watch TV as much as I used to.

Glad you're feeling better :D, you're not as talkative depressed :P.

Ugghh those bubble sheet tests, I hate those -.-. I hope I don't see another one of those once I head back to college >.<.

I learned about Bernie Mac from my clan's website, surprised me too o.O. I thought he was doing pretty well :S.

Don't worry about the brain farts, I get those constantly (and with something very common as well -.-).
