Hey there. I'm Tim. I'm not sure what this will turn in to, if anything, but I need to get writing. I'm an English major and certified to teach secondary English so I figure I should do some writing to keep me focused. I never really thought of myself as a good storyteller, or even particularly interesting in anyway. I guess I never really started writing because I don't feel like I have anything original to say. At this point, I know I should just write about anything because I'll never be good at something if I don't actually do it. Sounds simple enough.

I teach at Annapolis High School. I've coached swimming there for 12 years now. I went to high school there. Never in a million years did I think I would be around that school for this long. I hated it there. In retrospect, it was a good school. I say was for a reason; it's not what it used to be. I love coaching there. There was a while when I wasn't sure I wanted to do it anymore, but this year has helped revitalize me a bit. I teach a class called Earn All. It's not what I want to be teaching, but it's a job. It's an at risk program that's fairly new, and the money is decent for now. I'm pretty tired right now and this is the most I've written since I finished school. Would it be way unoriginal and cliche to end this with: To be continued......?

Hey The dude,
I was looking for a post from you. Last time I searched the forum didnt find your name. Now that I know what your first name is and where you work, I can start stalking you again. (Dont freak out moderator, he's my best friend and I threaten him all the time) Anyway, if you find out how to have those little green squares to mutate and change from "Member", let me know. I have been trying to figure that out.

Good luck on catching the kid that smears poop all over the bathroom. It might be the principal. I bet no one would suspect him.

Another thing you were saying about not being able to write during the day, consider posting some questions about the stuff you read. I think some of the books you pick up are very interesting and I know there are profiles out there that can point you in some better directions to finding more.

I think it would be really funny if you got kicked off here for your threatening remarks.

To everyone else: Thanks for the welcome.
