I'm too easily distracted and I don't have enough time to do everything I'd like to be doing. Facebook sucks, time I would spend here is easily spent looking at people's posts and posting small twitter-esque status updates. I guess everything that has been going on in my life is probably on Facebook somewhere, somehow but it's lost to me. In the ether, I don't know. Anyway, LJ used to be the place where I would write about the important and not-so important stuff going on in my life. It's nice to be able to look at posts from years past and immediately remember the moment in time. A lot has changed in my life over the past few years and I feel like I've been neglecting the moments, so to speak. I don't know. There's a school of thought that would argue that you enjoy or remember the moments more if you don't try to capture them or hold on to them. That you should just enjoy them. "I'm too busy living my life to write about it" someone once posted on here. True, and I suppose the holding on to moment thing is true too but it's nice to have a record. My memory/recall/retention is not the greatest, but just reading a couple of sentences takes me back. I'm rambling, I guess I just regret not writing more about my kids, about getting married, going back to school, experiences in class, my observations and my student teaching. The whole interview process and finally getting a job. Now I'm not writing about the actual job. There's been fire drills, screaming children, balls lost on fire escapes and out windows, blood, urine, sweat and tears. Bad teachers, good teachers, frustration, traffic, and Transformers blowing stuff up and getting in the way. (The movie has been filming all over town, heh)

I don't know, you've got to have priorities I guess, like I should be sleeping right now, I have to be up in about five hours. Our schedule is hectic, it sucks sometimes, it really sucks. But that's life right? That's the point I guess, birth, school, work, death right? Eh...anyway, I miss hearing from a lot of you, I miss catching up on LJ, and the olden days in general.

I'll try to try.
