Oops, I did it again...

Oops.I did it again (to quote Brittany)...procrastinated on my homework and now everything is coming due at the same time.  This is a pattern the so needs to change!!!!  It sucks!!!!  In the real world, in the classroom, I would struggle but would stay on top of things much easier because I would be reminded daily of what needs to be done and because I am in charge.  With classes, however, someone else is in charge.  Now to put my nose to the grindstone (yes I am aware of the cliche) and get to work.

I have a temper.  I wish I didn't.  I wish I was patient life my father.  Stoic even...like a distance and quiet leader that observes, watches, and speaks only words of wisdom.  The type of person that when I speak my words are worth listening too.

Instead, I get frustrated easily which my son proudly takes advantage to provoke me...and I fall for it almost every time.  Once in a while I can catch my self, but not often enough.  My friends don't necessarily see this side of me and my sister has only seen a version of my temper.  It is almost like a deep, dark creature that hides in the corner looking for opportunities to humiliate me.  How can I learn to control my temper?  More yoga?  Work out more.  It would help if I was more organized and less stressed out.

Any ideas?  Do any of you lose your temper?

A humming bird flew into my house and became confused trying to fly out the window.  We tried to open the window but the little guy got stuck between window panes.  The hummingbird was the size of my thumb and I could see his little chest rise and fall in complete panic and fright.  Finally, he stopped moving he was so frightened.  My son finally was able to picked the tiny bird up and stick him in a jar.  I took the jar outside and placed the hummingbird on the ground.  It took a little while before the creature calmed down enough to fly away.  His feathers was so beautiful...blue and green.
