Yeah. Summer 2015 ended for me, so why is it still so dadgum hot outside!? I'm telling you the Tennessee Valley turns into a damn rainforest this time of year. It's all humidity and rain everyday and mosquitoes the size of house flies and ants in the pantry and and and...
That's okay though really because...
....University of Tennessee football is back in less than 30 days away. And it is seriously about to get real on Rocky Top.
Plus, I started back to work. Moved back up to teach 8th grade, which I am so excited about. I'm working alongside two brand new teachers (both awesome!!). Just been super busy though. I have seriously not watched a single movie this past week. Not one.
Just been orchestrating baseball team drafts with my new 8th graders. Each student picks a team, and that's where they post their end-of-class assessment each day. Almost everything is baseball related in my room.
I've been so busy these are the only two pictures I took of my first week back to work. I guess the pic below is fitting for a Friday afternoon at 5:00 PM. Delicious!
I thought this was really cool. Some of this shit is real, for real.
My sister turned 29 yesterday. Crazy! On my way to Denver to visit her (and My Morning Jacket at Red Rocks next week!). Can't wait, kid. Happy Birthday!
This will be my second visit with MMJ this year. Here's the poster for my hometown show:
Here's the promo pic for the Red Rocks show:
I've got nothing else to say, other than True Detective Season 2 is awesome. Suck it, haters! The last two episodes were unreal great, and everything has seriously come together. I even came back around on Vaughn and Kitsch, who have really been wobbly throughout the season. Farrell and McAdams are solid, and, I hope, Emmy bound.
I, mean, McAdams...for real, and that last scene of Episode 6...the music...the flashbacks...the grit. Just wow!
