Throwback to when I could fit into this dress
So I am substituting today and I had been thinking about my old English teacher the past few days, I was telling Khali about her yesterday. She really loved me and supported me and pushed me hard to succeed, so I just had to talk to her and thank her for investing in me. And she started crying :”)
the conversation just made me happy. It’s important to me to compliment people and let them know they are appreciated and Mrs. Cardenas definitely deserved it! Especially with teachers, they care about their students and they think about us frequently. They don’t get paid in dollars, they get value from their positive impact, and the return is our success and appreciation.
and she told me I was her best writer and she still has my paper as an example something about embroidery as symbolism in the scarlet letter XD we were in a nerdy classroom haha

You get one chance to make a split decision. Open yourself up to chance. Say hello to new people, let them into your world. They will inevitably make you better.
We are all wonderful, all shapes and size, and bound in many more ways than you think.
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
