A blog from a thirty-something year old broke teacher trying to figure out why her fridge doesn't have food in it and why her life isn't fabulous like the Kardashian girls.

What to eat when the eating ain't good
I want a burger and fries. That will cost money that I don't have. I can heat up some chicken. Or some ramen noodles. Or make a salad. But I would rather have a burger and fries. My burger craving increases when my bank account decreases. So I am having maximum burger cravings right now. I will wait and if I must have a burger, I will go to McDonald's. Must have burger.
This is a place where I can rant about my life as a third grade teacher who continues to try to get her act together years after graduating college.
It is hard to find teaching blogs where the writer is not all rainbows and unicorns. Teaching is hard work and at times the kids are not fun and you don't feel like anything inspiring is happening in the classroom. It isn't that I don't love teaching, I can't imagine not doing it but I can't handle blogs where the writer never writes about the frustrations of teaching...or of the small paychecks that one receives on a monthly basis.
