It’s been a hella long time since I’ve blogged some updates, and I swear I have a good excuse. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been contracted to write a Religious and Moral Education curriculum ::Pause for you to compose yourself after laughing uncontrollably:: for a school in Sierra Leone.

I dunno about you, but being able to shoot a bow and arrow seems like the most bad ass skill you can have. You might be saying, “Yeah, yeah, whatever”, but consider this: Cartoon Robin Hood? Bad ass.

Locker Room Harpies I’ve always envied people who were able to go to the gym before work. While teaching, I usually got to work between 7:15 and 7:30; if I wanted to work out beforehand (which I never did), I would have to get up around 4:50. Back when I was 22 and spritely, Chelsea... Read more »

I’ve seen a helluva lot of things as a DC public charter school teacher for the past eight years. I have amazing memories of kids who worked hard, made me laugh, and were the biggest reason why I love my job. I also unfortunately have memories of dealing with bureaucracy, the effects of poverty and... Read more »
So it’s 8:00pm on a Sunday and my ass just woke up. ”Wake up” may be a bit sympathetic to my current situation. In reality, not only did I just wake up, but I’m covered in glitter and beads. From this description, I should be dead or in jail. Yet here I stand (okay, I’m... Read more »
