If you know me pretty well, then you know politics totally aren’t my thing. I don’t know why. I’ll watch segments on GMA about the violence in Syria or Libya and be completely interested, but as soon as they go to the “and here’s what each of the candidates are saying/doing about this situation” I’m like, “Okay, time to fast forward!” I don’t want it to sound like I don’t care about the country or that I’m completely oblivious to things; I do pay just enough attention to know who I want to vote for and stuff like that. I don’t want to say I’m totally clueless about politics; I’m just disinterested, I guess.
Anyway, the other day I was thinking about something that happened when I was young and apparently I was just as clueless about politics back then! In second grade we learned that Bill Clinton was the president and Al Gore was the vice president (I think this may have been just after the election). The teacher told us that we should go home and tell our parents at dinner who the president and vice president are and they’ll be impressed with us. So, I remember talking about my day at school and remembering what she told us. Before I said it I wanted to make sure I remembered the information so I thought about it. “Okay, Bill Clinton is the president and who’s the vice president again? It was Al something. Hm…Al, Al, Al What? Al Roker? That sounds like a name I’ve heard before. That must’ve been what she said!” Then I excitedly announced to my parents that I knew who the president and vice president were. They asked me who and I was like, “Bill Clinton is the president and the vice president is Al Roker!” My parents tried not to laugh. My mom said, “Maybe Al Roker wishes he were the vice president!” I didn’t like to be wrong, so I was insistent that this was what the teacher told me. Then my dad said the vice president was Al Gore and I was kinda like, “Oh, yeah, maybe that’s what she said. I’m not sure.” I guess, in my mind, morning TV shows have always been more important than politics!
I feel like this most nights lately!
a comic about every night of my entire life
I feel like I post something similar to this almost every month and half the time it works and half the time it doesn’t. So, basically, life happens however it’s meant to despite me wishing on tumblr for it to be always good!
I made a CD of all Disney songs to play in the background in our classroom, and this is one of the songs on there! Maybe I didn’t even need an excuse to make a CD of Disney songs because I was pretty excited to download them, lol, but I’ll maintain that I did it for my students and not for myself! ;)
I was obsessed with the BSC when I was young so I had to reblog this! And at the bottom there’s a link to a “Where are they Now?” article from The Hairpin, which is pretty cool too.
I don’t know why, but I still really like this show. Season premiere tonight!
