1st Qrter blues....

The first Quarter is a real killer for most people. It is that sucker-punch that you only caught out of the corner of your eye. School starts up and every teacher is off and running to get as much as they can out of the time they have. I guess that I am only different in that I really don't want to be that way. My apologies to any that I have offended with my blanket statement, but truly it is a sprint to the end of the year. Every time the year threatens to drown me I have to muster up some courage to fight back. Don't even pretend that you don't know what I am talking about! I think on some level I really enjoy the challenge of what I do and how I do it, but; it does wear on the soul a bit, narrowing us down and thinning us out so that you can see through us to the other side.
With the close of the 1st Quarter and countless, "Mr. Perez...what is my grade?" comes a small amount of relief. Regardless of what grade you may have received, let me encourage you to keep your head in what you are doing. Work hard at working hard and don't let up until Christmas. For parents, don't be so busy with life that you kids are unable to keep up with their schooling. Crazy schedules makes for difficult time studying and completing projects. When you feeling giving up, don't. That feeling just means that you are on the verge of a great accomplishment.

PS, here is a link to the old lease runs out in November so I am sure to lose all of the stuff there.
