Media Monday #1

Happy Halloween!! I went through the whole day and kept forgetting it was Halloween..funny how things that were SO important when you were a little kid hardly seem to matter at all when you're's kind of depressing really.  To honor the holiday, I am going to make a point to eat a whole bunch of candy tonight! :)

As a teacher, I’m really into routine and scheduling.  When I plan lessons, I like to do the same thing on different days of the week, so my teacher personality is coming out on my blog. 

Introducing…..(drum roll please)….. Media Mondays!

Each Monday I’ll share music, movies, or TV shows that I think are worth listening to and/or watching.

Bad Teacher was an awesome movie.  Cameron Diaz plays a self-absorbed woman who whose main interest in life in snagging a rich husband so that she no longer has to be a middle school teacher.  She says EXACTLY what she is thinking throughout the whole movie and had Jack (my husband who is also a middle school teacher) and I cracking up.  To all of my teacher friends out there, Cameron Diaz’s character says all the things that run through my head on a daily basis but could never say out loud…and if  you don’t wish you could say all of the things she says in the movie at work, you are lying to yourself.  Anyway, it’s definitely worth watching if you are a teacher and you want to feel good about yourself.

I’ve been listening to the Shins for a few years now.  They’re an indie rock group that originated in New Mexico I first heard about them when the movie Garden State with Zach Braff and Natalie Portman came out in 2004.  The Shins are therapeutic to me in that they always put me in a better mood when I am down.  Also, even though they’re not particularly peppy, they make good workout music, in my opinion.  If you haven’t heard of the Shins before, check them out!
