Lunch in Panama City, Florida

Bayou Joe's is the cutest hole in the wall in Panama City.

 This stairway really caught my eye.

This view!

Now I must get back to reality, I have a final due today for Diverse Learners! 

Wish me luck!

Warning: Welcome to Paradise

Hello everyone!! I hope that you are having a terrific Wednesday! Between finals and work I have been taking short trips to different cities in Florida. I went to Panama City Beach yesterday. It was windy, but somehow perfect! I always feel at peace when I see the ocean, until yesterday when I saw this caution cone on the boardwalk.

This really got me thinking, when beautiful feelings rule our minds and we are blinded by a seemingly wonderful tunnel vision, we replace our good judgement for trivial concerns. My advice would be to approach beautiful things with caution.

Have a great Wednesday, see you somewhere soon!

I'm not Einstein.

So, here's the thing. 

I am a junior in college studying to become a secondary English teacher. I am your average student. I skip class. I procrastinate, big time. I am not the next Einstein or anywhere near it. I am not going to find the cure for cancer. I will not ever invent anything to benefit society. I am just a twenty something year old college girl with dreams and ambition. I believe that beyond all of the negativity that is broadcasted so abundantly in the world, that there is hope. 

I repeat: 
There. Is. Hope.


Maybe so, but I would rather naively believe that there is hope than believe that the world has really come to be what the media portrays it as. 

People are wonderful. 
Happiness is real. 
Life is beautiful.

Someone will do all of the great things that I can't. But what I can do is infect the world with my optimism. I was not made to keep all of my love, optimism, energy, and happiness to myself. I was meant to share it. I want to inspire my students and everyone around me to be the best that they can be. I want them to know they can come to me for support and encouragement. I want to make them feel loved and appreciated. Then, then my life will truly be meaningful. I want to have something other than myself worth living for.

Here's to new beginnings. 

Here's to unlocking our world and everything it really has to offer.
