My reading list grows exponentially. Everytime I read a book, it'll mention three other books I feel I have to read. It's like a particularly relentless series of pop-up ads.

Insanity Has No Boundaries

Most of you don't know me in real life.

Some of you do.

The few who really know me, though, know that I'm a tad on the strange side. But I like the word eccentric better. And at times, I can be obssessive. Okay, so maybe not at times. More like all the time.

I used to be able to keep my insane Tiffany away from mingling with the sane Tiffany's life, but lately, those two have merged together in a very disturbing way.

So much so that at school, a student surprised me with a  LIFE SIZE Edward poster. You may ask: Why would a 4th grader know about your obsession to the point that they would bring you a life size Edward poster? Well, I really can't justify myself to you. My students know me all too well!
Evidence from Exhibit A:

Evidence from Exhibit B:

Evidence from Exhibit C: (Edward's new brooding place on the side of my filing cabinet, next to my round table where I work with small groups)

Some may argue that my insanity is a little too much and they may not want me teaching their young children's impressionable minds. And I may agree. But, hey I'm honest and I'll never pretend not to be me.

However, if ever a student brings in a poster of this:

Edward will have to be replaced. Damon is the vampire of my choice. Oh, and by the way, I love my new hairdo. Shoutout to Kristen's hair chick, Erin. She rocked my hair, and now I'm going to have to travel to Buffalo everytime I want my hair did. Who woulda ever thunk that this girl would have such short hair!!

10 brilliant remarks:

Haha, awesome. I only wish my 4th grade teacher was as awesomely eccentric as you.

Melissa said...

Nice Tiff! If I had put a Edward poster in my classroom when I taught 4th grade my old boss would have made me take it down. *grumble*

Ooh, I can see the plum streaks! LOVE!

Christopher said...

that first picture was rather adorable i have to admit

Matthew Rush said...

You are one odd duck, but I can respect it. There's no shame in my game either!

Tina Lynn said...

There's a sane Tiffany. *knits eyebrows together* Huh.

Sara McClung ♥ said...

LOL Tiffany!

Dude, if you love Twilight--did you know the UK's putting out a new edition of all four books, and they all have WHITE covers? They're sooo pretty! I just got mine :)

And, yeah I LOVE your new hair cut too! Every time I see your picture I get this HUGE craving to chop mine off again (and I've spent the past two years growing it back out...)

Everyone has their afflictions and passions, so to each their own. But I don't disagree with you at all.

Tiffany Neal said...

Marisa, Melissa, and Sara - I also love that Insanity has LOTS of company. :)

I'm not so sure an administration is fully aware of the fact that Edward is hanging around in my room, but oh well. Better to ask for forgiveness than permission. *shrugs*

Thanks for the hair love. That's another thing the administration in my school hasn't quite commented on yet either...I plead the 5th. Purple streaks, what?

Christopher - I think so too. I love how I placed my hand on his abs to steady myself. :)

Matthew and Tina - Shhhh. I'm just trying to appear somewhat normal. I already know I'm 5 kinds of crazy.

Shain - Thanks for your support. Maybe we should come up with an IPA group - Insane Persons Anonymous...I could use that extra support.

Tiffany, you are strange and I am completely on board with it.
