About:  Egg(s) in The Nest.

I'm a University student living in Lethbridge, AB. It's really windy here and sometimes that makes it difficult to ride my bike. I have one internship left until I am a certified high school English teacher, which sometimes makes me feel uncomfortable because I'm really not that much of a grownup.

My name is commonly misspelled and mispronounced. I like sewing, my turtle, body mods, nature, Iceland, a vast variety of music, festivals, being outdoors, cephalopods, accessories, incense, literature and smells that remind me of the past.

The power of words can conquer all.

So I’m going to Coachella next week and everyone keeps telling me to look for celebrities and I’m just sitting here thinking half the time I can’t recognize my own friends from 15 feet away how the hell am I going to recognize an incognito celebrity in a crowd of ~40,000 people? Nope. 

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

If you’re eating cow you call it beef

If you’re eating pig you call it pork

If you’re eating deer you call it venison

…so what would you call it if you’re eating human?

Lies I’ve Told My 3 Year Old Recently

Trees talk to each other at night.
All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.
Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.
Tiny bears live in drain pipes.
If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.
The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.
Everyone knows at least one secret language.
When nobody is looking, I can fly.
We are all held together by invisible threads.
Books get lonely too.
Sadness can be eaten.
I will always be there.”

Raul Gutierrez, “Lies I’ve Told My 3 Year Old Recently”

I haven’t posted in a while, but today is an extremely relevant day.

I was accepted by the Calgary Board of Education and will begin teaching in January.

The last six years have finally paid off. This is so surreal….

Did an amazing lesson with my 20-2 students today in regards to this campaign. Talked about this, cultural appropriation, stereotypes and identity. I finally felt like i was able to reconnect with them after some meaningful debates and discussions :)
