Happy Birthday JOEY!

Today is my brother Joey's Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is 21! So weird! Just yesterday I was teaching him to drive stick shift! (That's what he said in his email to me this morning...after I reminded him that I taught him how to ride his bike, lol) So crazy! My brother is entering adulthood for real now...

My parents bought tickets to Brazil last week and will be leaving May 27th to go pick him up! I am so excited for them! My parents deserve this, they are amazing parents, who have worked really hard to raise such a good kid like Joey! I don't think they've ever been on a big trip like this besides their honeymoon to Disneyland/the Mexico boarder. Yay! Well the count down has begun! I'll let you all know when his homecoming is! Probably the second Sunday in June....

Coming Up!

I will be going to Logan in a couple weeks to meet the founder of , thanks to Katey:)! I am interested to hear more secrets and to step in the "sole" of society. If you haven't read or heard of this blog site before, beware, it may not be for you. People from around the world send in postcards to this guy with some of their deepest, darkest secrets... some being more gruesome or disheartening than others. I like this blog for two reasons. One, people can openly share their sole and get things off their chest and two, it helps me realize that we're all human, we all make mistakes, we all have thoughts we regret or ones we would never share... I guess I just think of the blog as a mini therapy session, lol. Anyway, just beware that if you check it out, it is not rated G and you have be one who can think outside the box:).

She said..."CRAP!"

I don't even know if I have any blog followers... I haven't blogged since Feb. 20th, that's a world record for me! Life's been busy and when you get out of the habit... it's just hard to start again, lol.

This school year has been rather interesting to say the least... I have so many stories to share... For starters, I have an EXTREMELY difficult, defiant little rascal in my class this year... all the other teachers feel bad for me... well today he wouldn't do any of his classwork, like most of the days of this school year (he may be smart but his report card is going to have straight N's, aka F's). So today I looked at him and said "I'm not putting up with this crap anymore, you need to do your work." The class went dead silent... I've never used that word or any other "bad" word for that matter in the classroom, it kind of made me chuckle inside. Needless to say all of my students kept on task for the remainder of the hour:).

About Me

Life as it for Tiffany Finley is quite the revolving door, one activity ends and I’m back on the rebound, looking for something to spice it up! Live it up, I tell you! Although, those who know me well, know my limits of “living it up!” A whirlwind of terrible singing, dancing, playful banter, blunt responses, sweet and endearing but firm and serious remarks to children, speaking/slaughtering accents that I’ve spun from memory, are a just a few of my favorite things….I delight in waking to the sunrise, driving to an incredible place of work, where I am able to express my true self regularly! My students call me "Crazy. ” This is where the song and dance comes into play, whether we are learning about adjectives or writing our names on our papers, I’ve got a song and cheer for it all! I’m passionate about traveling and walking down narrow pathways. In my spare time, I enjoy taking walks in the park…I’ve been known to disappear in the dark of the night, only to be found on the swings. I also love to organize and re-organize, I can never quite get things right. I thoroughly enjoy people watching.
