Portland should be quarantined.
Awful cold, day 4. Rob and I took a field trip to Fred Meyers for supplies. I have never seen more sick people in one place. Lots of coughing, babies with runny noses, displays selling soup.

Still, sucks to be us, huh Portland?

I think that ‘I Love You Man’ was one of the funniest movies I saw this year and ‘Knocked Up’ might just be on my top 10 list of all time. So obviously, I was really excited about ‘the Hangover’ (even if Judd Apatow...

Underneath the Leaves = totally mindblowing.
The perils of being too good at your job.
I LOVE being a math tutor. I LOVE making dorky jokes and showing kids cool math tricks and getting them excited about math. I LOVE being a positive female role model and mentor for my female (and male) tutees. I LOVE that because I had trouble with math in middle and high school, I know how to get through to kids with learning styles like mine. I LOVE that most of the kids who had severe math...
