Some people say that I am way too opinionated. I like to think that I am confident in who I am and that my voice is important
Some people think that I am unemotional and that I don't care. I like to think of it as only putting energy into what is really important in my life
Some people tend to think that I am a bit stuck up and arrogant. I like to think that I am more introverted and that I prefer to keep to myself more than most.
Words to live by (Cognitive Restructuring)
It doesn't matter who you love, just that you love. Don't put off tomorrow what can be done today...tomorrow may never come. Treat everyone with dignity and respect. It's mind over matter...If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. There is always someone who has it worse off than you. Be sure to exercise your mind body and soul. Value your health, without it, you don't have much. Treat your body as a temple. Listen more than you speak, that is why you have two ears and only one mouth. Laughter is good medicine.
It's Friday and I am working independently in my classroom which is awesome because it's nice and quiet.
Mr. Utrie took me out to lunch today. We went to Bon Ton to get fish which is one of my favorite meals.
Midway USA sent me an email letting me know that some of the hunting items that have been on back order are now in so I ordered a few things. They will be here sometime next week.
I signed my contract to come back and teach next year. It's a major relief that I have a job and that I can support my family.
I got to help one of my students today with health which eliminated all his missing work and brought him back up to an A.

My downward comparison is my brother Aaron. Aaron served in the military, specifically the Army. My brother was stationed in the middle east right after 9/11. His job was to clear terrorist caves with a heavy machine gun. When he got back from his 3 tours, Aaron suffered from PTSD and severe depression. He has a very hard time keeping relationships and jobs. He won't talk about what happened there. He has bounced around from job to job, and gets very aggressive if he doesn't agree with his boss/bosses which ends up getting him fired. He just can't seem to integrate himself back into society. I feel terrible that the idea of serving your country can have such long lasting consequences.
