    So, it seems like a lot of students are struggling with organization this year. It does make sense. We are on a new, "busier" schedule, some would say. We did not purchase agendas for the students this year, as the change in bell schedule was not finalized in time for us to put in our custom order. However, I'm not 100% convinced that the majority of the students who are struggling to keep up with what's going on even used their agendas last year (maybe I'm wrong... I hope I am, in fact). Agendas are also a HUGE expense for our school. Having the bell schedule and school information custom printed isn't cheap. It was however, a good resource, as long as it was used properly.

    So, because so many students are struggling to keep up, I'm going make an offer to each of you... If you want a generic student planner for the 2014-2015 school year (click here to see it) then fill out this form and give me $6.00. I'll order them for you and you will have them 2-3 days later.

      So, thew World Series is going on... We have a Cinderella story and the Giant that needs to be slayed in order for it to have a happy ending... I;m not sure who I'm pulling for, but I;m always up for more baseball. Danny Duffy is from the Central Coast, though, so it makes being in the Royals' corner fairly easy.. but, Hunter Pence was an ASTRO... he also played Marv from Home Alone. People used to say I looked like the other actore of the movie, MaCAulay Culkin. Unfortunately, our paths have gone in vastly different directions since the move was released.

          I walk winners.

          That's the truth.Votes or not, I walk winners.

          The rally on Friday brought some interesting things to the forefront. One of them, possibly the most interesting of them all, was the Sophomores (yes, that's you...well, most of you) being thrust (literally) to the forefront of the competition. Although I could have done without "Ken's Fantasy," the dance (it wasn't a skit) was well choreographed, and the costumes all matched. That's somewhat unusual, especially given the ho-ho-horrendous performance you put on last year as Freshman. It was a vast improvement. You'll have some tough competition next year when the defending champs (Juniors) try to go back-to-back. Second place is good, but you can beat them. It will just take something more that hip thrusts and shirtless male dancers.... and that weird arm thing.

          Very NICE!
          High five, guys (and girls)!

            Well, I'm back and you are in for a treat. We are going to have a visitor today. My super hot wife is coming to see what you guys and girls have to put up with all day. So, don't embarrass yourselves, she remembers pretty much everything.

            Weird facts for today:
            I've only ever walked two homecoming queen candidates.
            They both took my class as sophomores.
            They were both named Jasmine.
             One of them won... we'll see about the other.
