by just doing what we can, we can all touch, change and maybe even save a life


I can’t believe how much this sucks and how much it’s hurting

I went through a some what heavy breakup when I was young

Had emergency surgery before a cyst exploded

I’ve walked away from one of my best friends, who I still miss everyday

I’ve learned that no matter how well you plan, life does what she wants 

But this… this hurts. I just want to look at all my students and parents in the eye and say sorry. I don’t want to leave and at the same time I can’t stay. I’m so deeply and truly sorry that I won’t be finishing this. Embarking on this journey is the greatest things I’ve done with my life so far. Being a part of this was meaningful, rewarding, exciting and a huge turning point for me. Professionally, I never thought I would reach this point at my age, but my work was never about that. It just happened while I was pursuing something that matter with people who cared. Walking away is THE HARDEST DECISION I’VE EVER HAD TO MAKE. GOING THROUGH THESE NEXT FEW WEEKS WILL BE THE HARDEST WEEKS. More challenging and hurtful than any breakup, fight, injury or regret I’ve experienced. I know at the root of the sadness is the joy and pride I have for the work I did and the students and people I’ve worked with. They’ve impacted my life in a way I never saw coming. I love my kids, and I hate to be letting them down at a time like this. So all I can say is, I’m sorry and I love you guys.

‎Yes, please boycott Oreo for their support of Gay Rights. We’ll all appreciate you going on a diet. While you’re at it, please also throw away your iPod, iPhone, and iPad since Apple supports as well. Hopefully you have lots of clothes, because you’ll need to ditch your Levi’s and Nike’s too. Perhaps you bought them at … JC Penney’s or Sears? Sucks you’ll have to take them back … or actually, anything you wear from anywhere probably had a gay involved. Flying somewhere soon? Better not be on American, Delta, Southwest, or United…you’ll need a new ticket. Airline wasn’t mentioned? Just be sure your jet isn’t Boeing made. Don’t sleep at Marriott or Hilton (or any of their family brands) because you might catch the gay they support. That morning coffee from Starbucks will have to go as well, go ahead it replace it with a McCafe…oh wait, McDonald’s supports gay rights too. Hmm, do you clean with Tide, Gain, or Bounty? Use Duracell batteries, shave with Gillette, or use Fixodent? Brush with Crest, use Pantene, Scope, Tampax, Venus, or Old Spice products? Those are all gone too, stupid Proctor & Gamble supporting the gays. Damn, you’re using Internet Explorer or Crome to see Facebook and read this status? Download something else, Microsoft and Google show their Pride as well. Ah, but your drinks are safe. Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Budweiser are on your side … if your side is on the right side of history since all three also support Gay Rights. Hopefully, you or your lawyer will never need in-depth research. Both LexisNexis and Westlaw, who together control the market, support Gay Rights. Drive that big, manly, Ford F350? It’s a “Friend of Dorothy” too, as it’s company Ford and General Motors also support the rights of all. So, do us all a favor, don’t take it all out on a festive cookie … just stay home and boycott everything.

The Hulk ain’t never lied.

I can’t even express how much respect I have for Mark Ruffalo.  The dude’s on the US terrorism watchlist for fuck’s sake.

Omg, it’s true

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I was telling some of my students last night (especially the ones somehow even smaller than I am, including two very badass ladies) to look this performance up cuz it is legit inspiring.

There were like FOUR places where her height required her to JUMP when taller competitors could REACH. So cool.

I just watched this last night, and she is incredible. 5’ tall, 100# flat and she beasts through the course even making it up the ramp in one run. She’s positively epic. Makes me want to look into freerunning clubs around here.

She is literally one of my favorite people and a huge inspiration to me. She might be a heck of a lot shorter than me (literally 10 inches shorter), but to do what she can takes some serious strength and endurance. I can’t do half of what she does today, but one day I will.

This is badass!!!!

Someone finally made it!

She is/was a beast!!!!
