More squirrels

Fun fact of the day…

Squirrels have four front teeth that never stop growing so they don’t wear down from the constant gnawing.

How about a little update?

An update to further my struggle with procrastination… awesome

Anyways I feel that the only thing I ever post is my fun facts, which is actually completely true! But I am in my fourth year at university now. I have just gotten my practicum in a grade five class. And oh yes I am scared to bits, but I think in a way that is a good thing, because I would wonder if something was up if I wasn’t scared. So all is fine and dandy in that aspect I guess. Moving on, right now I am trying to write a lesson plan for my Monday class, so yes I am working on it a bit early but really not by much. I just thought if something comes up I do not want to be up until the wee hours scrounging up a lesson plan Sunday night. But at the rate I am going right now I feel that is what I will be doing. Oh I also moved into a new apartment, same building just bigger so that the bf can have his own office. Having it in the living room was quite a hassle when he needed to work and I had friends over… The down side to this place is that we have neighbors all around and the ones above us are up partying super late often and constantly drop their cigarette butts and ashes onto our desk. Super gross and super annoying.
