The life of a teacher is pretty sweet. Every day is a different adventure and we get to teach a subject we love, all the while making an impact on lots of lives. But let’s be honest, the best part about teaching is summer.
Am I allowed to say that? I think I am. One thing I miss about summer, besides my tan and the days when I’d eat 8 OtterPops, is the time I had to write on this blog.

Maybe it would be possible if I was a normal human and wrote normal, short blog posts. But let’s face it, normalcy was never in the cards for me. Thus, Wow Wednesdays and Sunday Morning Confessions are officially shelved until the summer. There’s just never enough time, people. And yes, I’m envisioning Jessie Spano as I say that.
However, I have really missed blogging and since basketball season officially ended last night, I now have a bit more time on my hands. Therefore, I’m instituting a new weekly post. The name is pretty self-explanatory, but just to clarify, Friday Favorites is a smorgasborg of sorts- a collection of all my favorites from the week. These might be movies, quotes, pictures, stories, songs, etc. The categories are endless. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first of many installments of:
