not me.

I thank you, I do.
But that pedestal you've put me on,
it's too high.
I don't belong there.
Trust me,
I'm not who you believe me to be.
I'm just me.
Nothing more, nothing less.
It's better you know now
then be disappointed later.

i never told you.

"I never told you what I should have said.
No, I never told you, I just held it in."
Complete lyrics: http://www.directlyrics.com/colbie-caillat-i-never-told-you-lyrics.html

yup, still a fan.

I've been told that I take basketball to a whole new level.
I'm sorry about that, I am.
I've also been accused of being super defensive and
a trifle over protective when it come to the Dallas Mavericks.
I'm also sorry about that. I just can't help it. I love them.
But this year, I've made an extra effort not to
go over board with my extreme fanning...
no facebook updates, limited entries on my blog,
no arguments with students, no bar fights.
I was doing well, I promise, until today.
I know we have new fans, which is always great,
but it bugs me a little when you claim to be fans
of a team and as soon as they start to lose..
you start wailing about how you spent an enormous amount
on a pink jersey, only to watch them lose.
First of all, look up the word fan.
Second of all, Mavericks team color is blue, white and green yo!!
Third of all, never mind....
just take off your pink jersey and call it a day.
I bleed blue, white and green.
I've been watching them fight their way to the playoffs the last 14 years,
so please, shut your face or I might just do it for you.

suck it up.

It's funny....until it's about you, huh?
If you can dish it out..
certainly you can eat it, right?


The choice was yours.
You chose to march to the beat of their drums.
You followed them there.
So, there you must stay.

crazy ride.

"One day you'll grow up.
One day you'll walk out 
in this big world on your own.
And there will be days that your heart will break and
you'll swear that all your strength is gone


My buddy Rosie went to France for summer vacation.
She's only been gone for a week but
without her constant nagging, it's feels much longer.
I hope she's having a blast though.
 She's certainly waited long enough to go.
I know you're reading Rosalyn...
Do all the things you need to but don't stay too long buddy...
there are so many interesting things
I have to tell you =p

best date ever.

Ha. I am amused....but then again..it doesn't take much.

weekend wrap-up.

Rockport harbor.
 Not bad for a town with one stop sign, huh?
I kid, I kid.  It's a lovely place and the locals are great=p
 Caught a catfish with just a fishing string 
and I was in a dress.
I know, I am pretty badass!!
Tommy's new friend. 
This fella ate most of Tommy's bait!
Needless to say, the husband was not happy.

It's very humbling to see just how hard 
everyone works in Rockport.
As always, I had fun.

Stay humble.
The higher you are,
the harder the fall.

it goes.

Wow, how fast time flies.
Dead week is officially over and
exams are in full force.
Another school year has officially come and gone.
I'm gonna miss Class of 2011.
With everything wrapping up,
the husband and I are heading out
 to Rockport, Texas for Memorial weekend.
Be safe everyone!


Am I the only one who finds this song quirky and fun?

our time.

my hero.
love it.
love him.

chasing perfection.

It's never perfect all the time.
Accept it. 
Life's easier that way.


Don't let her know you're laughing at her,
make her believe you're laughing with her.

you got me.

"I give up. I give in. I let go. Let's begin."

Let's not be foolish,
if you must follow your heart,
at least let your brain tag along.


impromptu fan service.
how great are they?

hail no.

Everything in Texas is bigger...even the hail!!!!!!!

Phi's car did not fare too well.

It's been a crazy night for us.
Tornado, flood, and hail for the DFW area.
Let's hope mother nature didn't wreak too much havoc.

I find it rather amazing
how some can forgive and forget so easily.
It seems like I'm not built that way.
Though I find it pretty easy to forgive,
forgetting has always been my biggest problem.
I envy those....the ones who know how to let go.
It's something I'm working on. 
I've been told that I'm getting better at it.
At least let's hope so.....

peter lee johnson.

I love the violin.
I love Peter Lee Johnson.
Together, they're pretty amazing.

only fair.

Have you forgotten?
It takes two to Tango. Yes, two.
If you blame one, you must blame the other.


I know this song is old but it's so catchy.

weekend wrap-up!!

 Congrats on your graduation LISA DO!!
So proud of you...
 Happy Birthday Sen!!
Please don't ask me what's on his face.
 Congrats to Mai & Huy!!
Definitely a fairytale wedding!
Meet Rosie, my best friend!!
 Meet Remy...my new friend =p
Ann made these lovely cupcakes for the Tuyen's baby shower.
They were super yummy, I'm sure!!
Finally met up with Cuong to get my souvenirs!
Thanks buddy..!!!!! You're the best...kinda.

Whew, I think we're finally caught up!!
Now with everything slowing down,
I can totally concentrate on the Mavericks =P


Amongst good friends, 
there's always going to be a healthy dose of competition.
But if that competition is constant.....
it's no longer fun nor friendly.
Wishing the best for your close friends should be the norm,
not hoping for their failure.
If you're doing that, 
perhaps you're not as close as you thought.
Or maybe you're not a true friend.

"Our 185 days are almost up. 
Thank you for walking it with us Ms. Nowitzki"
-Camila Rocha 4th period

Another Happy Friday rolls in,
however, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic today.
Though I'm ready for my summer,
I'm definitely going to miss this years crop of kids.
I've been teaching for almost 11 years now,
you would think that I'd be better at saying goodbyes.
Nope, not so much the case.

much needed.

Be true, sincerity goes a long way.

save the date.

for sure.

Be you, everyone else is already taken.
-Oscar Wilde

in between.

I have trouble understanding that there are shades of gray.
In my mind, there is only black or white,
either you are wrong or you are right. 
And anything in between is just an excuse.
How pretentious I can be...
to think that life can be neatly divided
into two simple categories.


She knows what she's doing.
Give her time.
You'll find out soon enough.

"I told you to be patient..
I told you to be fine..
I told you to be balanced..
I told you to be kind"

good enough. (lost post)

"No reason to stay
is a perfect reason to go."

turn it up.

Yes. I found this song on a Honda commercial.
And yes friend, I do jam to this in my Toyota =p

Nothing ever remains the same.
Change is inevitable.


There is something quaint about handwritten letters.
With all the technological advancements, 
it's become such an outdated practice.
The idea of opening mail and actually receiving something 
besides a bill is practically unheard of.
I don't know about you but I miss it, the simple act of opening a real letter.

nobody knows.

"like a clown, I put on a show...."

humble, are we?

"Come watch this fascinating clip wife. 
Unbelievable.  Pure raw talent."

weekend wrapups!

Who said a vegetarian couldn't cook?
Thought John came to pay me a visit...
alas, he was just scoping out his competition =/
 Mai & Mary painting the town green.
Congrats Mai, just one more week!!
Why is it that I don't look as cool as all the other DJ's?
The husband posing.
Wait, I can pose too =p
Btw, Bao's single ladies!!!

One more week and everything will be back to normal.
No more crazy weekends, weddings, or late night parties.
Just in time too because I really can't keep up.
That and I really miss my books yo.

let go.

"It gains the more it gives
and then it rises with the fall"

It's not too hectic this weekend so
it's a perfect time for me to play a little catch up.
I see lazy days ahead.
You guys enjoy.

*also, I received a few emails about the comment box being disabled. 
It's not, blogspot is just having some technical difficulties.
I had trouble logging on as well.

plan b.

Don't be caught unaware,
one should always be prepared.


Thanks bud,
for knowing when to leave me alone,
and when to push for answers.
It's nice to be understood.

I fear that my age is finally catching up.
I'm 31 but why do I feel like I'm 60??
It shouldn't take four days to recover from a weekend.
No matter, I get to catch a break this weekend, or a slight break at least.
I'm staying in town so it shouldn't be too rough.
Mai Lu is celebrating her last days of single hood this Saturday!
I don't even know if my bones will make it til then.
Odd,ever since my nuptials, I see Tommy even less.
 I forget that were even married sometimes..
After next week...it should be easy breezy though!!
