The Snow day that never was meant to be
McFly

Let's be honest. No one appreciated yesterday's snow storm. Not the powder freaks, not the snow bunnies, nor the animals on this great planet. NO ONE WANTED THIS SNOW STORM. Even as someone who had potential to have a school day, it was not welcome whatsoever. It's a mentality thing. I really want to get into summer mode and be excited about having 2-3 months off. With this snow? It leaves my brain to struggle and make the connections. Either way, the school year is slowly coming to an end and my first year as an administrator is nearly finished. I hope everyone's gardens and lives weren't affected TOO much by the crappy weather we just had. It can be a bitch, but it makes us all

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well.

A week of challenges
McFly

In my school, at any given time there are a total of five administrators. Two principals, Two assistant principals and the director of the school. This week? Two principals, one assistant principal and the director were out of state on school field trips. I don't mean to make this a point of contention or to air any grievances, just simply reflecting on the challenges I dealt with this week. I knew it was going to be a difficult week, but I didn't know what to expect to come my way. The one thing I have learned is to be confident in my ability to assess and resolve situations. I'm not trying to say I am perfect in my delivery or resolutions, but I am more confident. The issue is that

It's good to be back
McFly

My musical closed last week and I cannot be any happier. I put on a great show, had a great time and now I can go back to my normal life. That includes ACTUALLY coming to host trivia. I am going to miss a day in June, but other than that I should be here all summer :). I really hate not being around to host, because I miss you guys so much. It's just the regular routine of seeing everyone and having some drinks. Zio's, it's a thinking place, didn't you know? In all honesty, this past month was extremely busy and I am elated to have some time for myself coming up. I don't really have many plans, but I have purchased a Wii U and Mario Maker. So I will be honing my Nintendo skills most of the

Kids say the darndest thangs!
McFly

One team suggested last night, that for my blog, I post a blog from the minds of kids. Well, I didn't have time for that today (ain't nobody does), but it made me think of something I used to do when I was in the classroom. Much like the title says, kids honestly do say the weirdest shit ever. When I taught, I had a vase on my desk that never had flowers in it. They died. Moving on, I would write down the funny things kids would say and I would fold them up and put them in the vase. Whenever I was having a bad day, I would randomly pluck out a few until I felt better. I have since misplaced that jar (ever since I was relocated) and I really miss having that. So what did I do this year? I started

Baseball Season is Among us
McFly

Today is opening day for the Rockies, which has to be one of the best feelings for anyone out there who is a supporter. I wish I could be in Cleveland today for the Indians opening day, because that is my favoritest time of year. I love the HOOPLA and BALLYHOO of baseball fans. Baseball is THE national past time. I don't really care for people shitting on it and talking about how boring it is. It's the truest of grind sports. None of the other big 4 can you stage a comeback over undetermined amounts of time. Everything has a time limit. Plus, the games are outside during majority WARM months. None of that bundling up in tons of clothes to sit in the snow at a Football game. Maybe I have some

My Busiest Month
McFly

That's right. Every year, April is my busiest month. It just comes with the territory in a school year. April is the second to last full month of most school calendars. The last full month is usually chock full of reviews, finals and students winding down. The second to last month? Kids go nuts. It's that month where there aren't any national holidays or breaks. Just a full month of go-go-go. And my musical opens in April. I have a lot to do until then. There is something to be said to be so busy. When I first started having these Aprils, my friends would always tell me "Why don't you do less? You get so stressed". And that makes total sense. However, it has become a part of my life

A spring break for the Lazy People
McFly

This week has been my spring break and, typically, I spend it going somewhere like any normal person with an entire week off. This year, with the timing of my brothers wedding, I didn't exactly have sufficient funds to take a great trip anywhere. My plan was to chill hard all week here in Denver. And chill, my friends, I did VERY hard. I am currently typing this blog from my bed, where I have spent most of my day today. Just knowing that I have to eventually get out, kind of makes me sad. I love having these days where I can be a total introvert and just enjoy TV and my phone. Technology is keeping me warm on this unusually cold day. Is it also partially because I am hungover? Yes. That is

It's Tourney Spring Break TIME!
McFly

That's right. I'm double dipping a little bit here. I am currently about to start my spring break (in ONE FLIPPIN' HOUR!), which means: video games, pizza, doing what I want WHEN I want and NCAA BAXETBAWLS! I don't know what excites me so much about the tournament. There is a large portion of it that is tied into nostalgia, I'm very sure. From my youth, I've remembered: controllers broken (Thanks Purdue!), printing off brackets and storing them in my underwear drawer, staying up late to watch every game, and, especially, my teachers putting on the games during school. I know that I work in a school, and yes, back when I taught, I was totally that teacher who put up the games on my SMART board.

Mawwiage is what bwings us together today.

That's right. My middle brother is getting married on Saturday! I couldn't be more thrilled about the wedding, since I am very excited for his fiance to be a part of the family. It also makes me feel better, as an unmarried 30-something, with a 34 year old brother marrying a 37 year old woman. Love isn't out of sight for anyone, and that is exciting! The one thing I look most forward to is spending time with my family. My family has to be one of the most accepting and relaxed family ever (save for a few mishaps with the ole Step-family, but who doesn't?). They have already given me so much relief. They keep me in line and they are always having fun. Which is why this wedding, this

Nordstrom Rack is my new hero
McFly

That's right. Hero status achieved with some of that Nordstrom love. I have heard things about this store, but never really spent time in there. I went in there last year to poke around for some underwear, and came out very happy with the results. Really nice discounted underwear for my buns. That was it. I walked in a few times and walked out. In a few weeks, my brother is getting married, so I had to get some new accessories. Dress shoes and belt were on the agenda, and someone had mentioned that Nordstrom Rack has good stuff at a low price. So I walk in to check out their dress shoes and holy moly. They are all really nice good looking dress shoes that are heavily discounted. There

I want Super Mario Maker in a bad way

That's right. I can't get my mind off of it. I want to play Super Mario Maker in the worst way possible. How did console games become so expensive?! I spend a lot of my time on twitch.tv or YouTube watching the best Mario Maker players have at it. There is nothing more enticing to me than a game that replicates itself off old platformers. I have this weird itching feeling that I will be good at it, but then again, maybe not. This is why I haven't dropped $200+ on all that is necessary to have Mario Maker. I do know that the Switch comes out in just over a week, so why not wait to see what happens to Wii U prices. If you don't know what Mario Maker is, it's an opportunity for people to create

Mid-February Blues

So it's the middle of February, and my goodness, could I use a pick me up. It's that sweet spot in the school year where kids are really starting to act out and the weather is confusing and we are just far enough from spring break that it doesn't seem close at all. I just keep thinking: if I can make it through February, it's all down hill from here. March has spring break. April is the last full month. May is one foot out the door! Summer couldn't feel further from me. Keep me in your thoughts. I may not make it through this February without some scars. Last night! 18 teams… for half the quiz. We finished with about 15. In first place, we had my favorite team name of the

Schm-alentine's Day
McFly

Yeah, that's right. I said it! How frustrating can one holiday be? It's not even a holiday. What do women even want for Valentine's Day? I understood it when I was in middle school: chocolates and/or flowers. It was the emergency kit for Valentine's Day and it was my first time ever getting gifts for someone. At age 14, I had exhausted my reserve. From there on out, your guess was as good as mine. More chocolates? Check! Jimmy Eat World CD? Yeah sure! A necklace that literally meant nothing to you or her? Twice! It just feels like a second smaller birthday, anymore. I start to think of what cool stuff a girl might want, then I weigh if it's "Valentine's worthy". Really? I just want to take

Superb Owl is just around the corner!

Yeah I know. What a boring subject, but who can resist talking about the Super Bowl? I have no doubt that no matter the outcome, I will have a sense of seeing something unique this weekend. Whether it be a team win their very first Super Bowl, or the tail end of a true Dynasty. I keep asking myself "DA FUQ HOW MANY MORE YEARS WILL TOM WIN?" And the answer is forever. But let's be honest. He can't do this forever. He got game, but he can only take a few more hits before his time is done. He has been winning Super Bowls since I was in high school. I remember the Super Bowl against the Rams. I played Super Smash Brothers for the N64 through the entire game, save for the game winning field goal.
