glass-half-full

miss girl I’ll be straight up, today was my first day back teaching normal classes and it started and ended rather roughly.

but I’m a glass half full typa girl so we’re just going to focus on the positive:

1. while leading a lesson, team-teaching with Cool先生, he improvised a really great game incorporating my lesson content beautifully. praise God.

2. we had a lengthy staff meeting after school and he asked if we could sit together. in the past, we sort of good off or he watches me draw faces until he nods off and falls asleep but today

I slapped him awake and taught him Hangman, complete with The Weeknd references, who I’ve been getting him into lately.

3. Admittedly our giggling was probably super disruptive, but it couldn’t’ve been more disrespectful than sleeping.

4. He asked me to see some art film with him because he was asked out by our friend, the design teacher - a really really really really kind young woman.

5. I’m not exactly sure if I’m going to be a third wheel OR if I’m there because he //doesn’t want// it to be a date or anything remotely adjacent to one.

IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL?

[idiom]

a common expression, used rhetorically to indicate that a particular situation could be a cause for optimism (half full) or pessimism (half empty); or as a general litmus test to simply determine an individual’s worldview. The purpose of the question is to demonstrate that the situation may be seen in different ways depending on one’s point of view and that there may be opportunity in the situation as well as trouble.

This idiom is used to explain how people perceive events and objects and how perception is dependent upon the unique circumstances of every individual, thus perception is interpretation of reality and not the actual reality itself.  

Things I’m sure of:

Larry is real.

There is no baby.

This is all planned.

Knowing all of this I’m gonna try so hard to not be negative. The boys have to know that this would really pay off in the end to agree to this.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. 

In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. 

Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. 

Remember to put the glass down!

Can we talk about what an amazingly doting, attentive partner Joshua Hutcherson is being in this:

So many young people - young men, specifically - are acting like no one gave them home training in the entertainment industry nowadays and here’s this young man showing chivalry and romance still exist.

I, for one, applaud you, sir.
