Anytime I am having a conversation with someone about finding a job or needing a job I will always tell them about where I work if we have an opening. Its always interesting to me when they are quick to say no because they don't want to work in the "food industry." Or at least that's the impression I get. Well let me just say that I like working in the "food industry." I guess I like it because I know what I am doing and I'm good at my job! I'm sure we have all had a dumb server at a restaurant, there's a lot out there. Trust me, I work with them! But I also work with some that are really good and if you have a bad experience its probably because of you or the other tables they are taking care of. The people are annoying.... YES! But the job is busy work, I'm up and moving, and it works well with my school.

Remember how I said the people are annoying! To keep ourselves from going crazy we servers vent out our feelings before and after our shifts and most likely during. Today we discussed two classic questions...

Q1. Will it fill me up?

I don't know.... I'm a big girl and I can pound that down like its nothing!! Obviously it will fill you up! You're not gonna starve between lunch and dinner. Plus after I just got you a hundred baskets of chips you should be full!!

Q2. Is it spicy??

No mam...... Refried Beans are not spicy.

We can go on and on and on and on about how dumb people are and how rude they are too! You don't neeeeeeeeeeed something!! Ask nicely!! I tell you what, adults are worse then children!! Do I need to remind you to use your words because pointing at your empty basket of chips is going to get you no where!!!

Lets just say that my patience has grown a ton since I have started working in this business!!

HERE is a video to show you what I am talking about, see if you can spot the dumb things people do!

PS If you want ground beef, go to Taco Bell!!

Guess What...

Schools Done!!! YAY!!! Now that schools out I have time to blog again!! Here is what we have been up to!
Jeff had a birthday at the end of March!! He is a big 28 years old now!! Holy Cow!!! I made him a yummy mini chocolate cake! We had fun lighting it and blowing out the candles with the O'Loughlin kids. I love how Alison loves Jeff and is usually not afraid to be with him. He is such a cute uncle!!
Then it was my birthday on the 18th of April. I had the whole day off, no school or work! It was so nice to take a break and go shopping and eat free food!! I made a birthday wish for a fishing pole so this summer I could go fishing when we went up to the ranch!! Jeff went all out and got me a cute pink pole and a tackle box too! We did a quick test run the day of but didn't catch anything.
Lexi and I have matching Toms
Nathan and Jeff being buddies!!
Last day of PE at Val Vista Lakes!! It was so bitter sweet! I really had so much fun being in the elementary school but I am ready to keep going and finish up my student teaching next semester at Stapley Jr High.
Jeff and I both finished up school this past week!! Jeff doesn't really have any finals, just final projects. I had final assignments to get finished including my student teaching portfolio. This book is hopefully going to get me a job, good thing I got an A on it. We are so glad to be done this semester, only one year left.
With school coming to an end our apartment was turning into a disaster. I had been so busy I hardly had time for anything. So the day after school ended I got right to work. I did all the laundry, cleaned from top to bottom, and even cleaned out the refrigerator. Feels so good to have everything super cleaned and organized!!

I am sure by now that everyone has stopped checking my blog since I haven't posted anything in so long! I have been pretty busy the past few months so thats my excuse! Back in December I was trying to live up the Holidays and my break from school since school started early this semester. I was DREADING going back to school this semester since I am student teaching! But I must say student teaching has been going great and is not as bad as I thought it would be! I am student teaching with Mrs. Dawnelle Middlemiss at Val Vista Lakes Elementary School.

Student teaching I guess could be worst but HEY...its PE so its pretty fun! My student teaching requires so much but I have been able to keep up with all my assignments and stay ahead! My semester is broken down in to 3 week increments. The first 3 weeks I observed and taught partial lessons. The second 3 week set was of my mentor teacher teaching, then I teach. The third 3 week set is were I taught then my mentor teaches. Right now I am in my last week of my 3rd set. The final increment is me taking over and doing all the teaching until the end of the semester. So far I've made 8 school visits and observations, 4 sets of signs, 5 sets of music variations, 2 bulletin boards, lesson plan cards every week, 2 full lesson plans, and 2 videos with write ups. I still need to make 2 more sets of signs, 1 set of music, 3 full lesson plans, and put together my entire portfolio.
