You know you haven’t posted enough when you can’t remember your WordPress login! Sheesh!
I’m an NPR junkie. If I didn’t love Farm Boy I’d stalk Ira Glass. However I could do without MEEEshell Norris. WTH is a MEEshell for Michele. lol
Friday they featured the upcoming season of How to Make it in America on HBO.
I don’t have HBO, but it is pretty much a show about two dudes trying to make it in the fashion business in New York. I watched all of the Season 1 recaps, and I’ve got to say I want to move to New York, buy vintage tees and turn them into something too.
Or THIS ONE!
Ok, my attention issues just kicked in. Back to the story people!
SO the interview talked about making it in America and the inspiration for the show.
Their theme is it is all about the hustle.
This has been the theme of my life this school year. It is all about the hustle.
Picture that being a stack of the J word (journals).
Now, don’t get me wrong. I had to look up the dictionary definition of hustle just to make sure it doesn’t really mean something durrty.
Ol Meirriam-Webster had this to say:
The online Urban Dictionary had this to say (I shiz you not, there is an online Urban Dictionary)
someone who knows how to get money from others. selling drugs,rolling dice,pimpin. your hustlin for that money.
People who are forced to use their Brains to make it in this world.
They outsmart the smart, cunning, and has streetsmarts. They know how to get money and is skilled at doing it to. Also they can be so sly that they can sell you stuff you don’t need.
Someone that makes money in any way they can/want.
I think I’ve been hurriedly shoving lots of work around for a few weeks now. The other definitions just made me laugh.
So my question is, will I Make it in America doing what I’m doing? I feel like all my hustling (in a completely legal, non-drug related way) is getting me nowhere. Will staying up all night writing comments on lessons I hurriedly taught have much meaning to my students? Am I teaching them all the wrong things? This Teacher Barbie needs a new attitude and a clothing line. I kid.
I don’t know. I’m still not a Happydally.
I am however, a DANCING DALLY! You must click and dance. Nothing like watching people in the 70′s dancing to make you LYAO.

What is the most embarrassing dance you recall being into? I hate to say we did the Macerena a lot in High School.
