Today, one of my students, C, who has autism, wrote this little ditty:

God is a great guy.
He gives you the chance to be a saint and to stand near him
And hold his hand and not let go.
Satan wants you to lose
But God wants you to win!
Keep on trying and pushing for better things,
and to follow the path of Christ being the best you can be
and more.
There are alot of rules in life.
Rule number one:
Number two:
Number three:
These rules will make you a better person.
My rules are: Never join Satan or else. Its bad to go that way, God was there for you your whole life...Satan is not.
That is all i'm saying.

Love the earth
Do not hate
Love Jesus
Love your family
Recycle- it saves energy.

How to lose five pounds in 3 days without working out

Step 1- Plan a trip to California with your BFF to see your friend graduate.

Step 2- Get some weird sniffles and sneezes the day before you leave. Take some allergy medicine. Feel dizzy and weird. Attribute it to the allergy medicine. Sleep.

Step 7- Stay up most of the night with horrible pain, awful fever, and chills. Have your best friend take care of you all night. Cry.

Step 8- Wake up. Feel a little better. Decide to go to the graduation. Wait 5 minutes. Feel awful again. Decide to make the four hour drive home.

Step 9- Scrunch yourself up into a ball for four hours. Whimper a little. Feel too hot and too cold.

Step 10- Get home. Cry. Cry more. Call your husband. Demand that he come straight home. Call your mom to come take care of you for the first time in your adult life.

Step 11- Take 1284932 baths to reduce your fever. Debate going to the hospital. Throw up everything. Take fever reducer. Throw it up. Throw up some more.

Step 12- Feel so so so so so grateful for your mom and best friend and husband.

Step 13- Repeat for two days. Eventually develop a croup like cough, go to the doctor, find out that you have an ear infection, throat infection, chest infection, and dangerously low pulse.

Step 14- Spend 15 minutes whining on your blog so you can document such an eventful weekend.

Step 15- Wish that you were still doing this:
