I hope that everyone had a safe and exciting New Years, and their 2008 is off to a great start. My New Years was fun. The party that Kyle and I threw at Mad River was a big success and everyone really enjoyed themselves (some a little too much, but who really remembers).
Today is my first day back to school since before Christmas and I was not ready to come back. I was starting to get used to getting a few hours more of sleep everyday and not having to shave, but I am happy to be back. I am not the type of person who can have too much time off, I start to go stir crazy and get bored way too easily.
With school being back in session, I figured that I would give you a look as to what a typical day is like for me. If I am lucky, I wake up to the alarm clock at 6:20. Typically my dog, Mason, wakes me up a little before that. I take Mason for a walk, come home grab a quick bite to eat or drink a protein shake, shower, shave, get dressed. and am out the door between 6:55-7:10. I get in the car and enjoy my 15-20 minutes of Mike and Mike in the Morning before I get to work. When I get to work, I fill up my water bottle (I dont drink coffee) and I go to my classroom to get everything organized for the day. My morning classes run from 830-1115 and I teach second, third, and fourth grade math. After my morning classes, I get to go to lunch (our cafeteria is awesome), and have a few minutes to prepare for my afternoon classes. I teach two classes of kindergarten science in the afternoons. I know, your probably wondering, what kind of science do you teach to kindergartners??? Believe it or not, they learn a scaled down version of a lot of different topics from the human body to dinosaurs, space, and plants. After my afternoon classes, its off to practice (I coach football, basketball, and lacrosse at Calvert). After practice, I head home, take Mason to the park for about 30 minutes and than it is off to the gym for about an hour and a half. After the gym, its a shower and dinner time with Christie. We usually cook a nice meal together or go out to eat. After that its some TV time and than bed.
This is a big week for me. Other than coming back to school, we open up with the Portland Lumberjacks this weekend in Portland. Other than the 10 hours it is going to take to get from Baltimore to Portland (via Atlanta, why…Im still not too sure about) I cant wait. We had two really tough but good three hour practices this weekend that closed out our six weeks of training camp and the team is really coming together (Watch out Portland).
Any thoughts about the first round of NFL Playoffs?
Whos your pick in the NCAA National Championship? Mine is LSU. I like OSU, I went on a recruiting trip there and it was amazing, I got to meet and get a tour from Archie Griffin (only two-time Heisman winner), see the football facitlites, and watch a game in Ohio Stadium. Throw in the game featured some of the best college football players that year (Arrington, Courtney Brown, Katzenmoyer, Vrabel, Boston, to name a few).
Until next time, have a good one and I will talk to you soon.
