It was awesome talking to the first graders and fifth graders at the school.
I spent most of my time encouraging students to dream big, overcome obstacles and get good grades!
The funniest moment of the day, one of the students asked me if I had a house. I said no, so all of the students began saying "what you live in an apartment? you don't have a house??" I explained, that I didn't have a husband, or kids and lived alone, they said "What no kids, or husband, what about pets???" One girl asked me if I had a dog or cat, I said no, I don't. The students went crazy, the same girl then said---You don't have anyone--aren't you LONELY!!!! OMG I was so shocked but it was hilarious. I explained to the kids that I was happy and single. That I had the best life ever!! I get to go where I want, Spend my own money on what I want, travel, eat out, dance with my girls and just have a good time! Oh well, I guess I need to start working on the other things too because apparently I'm too old to not have a house, husband, kid and dog :)
