Is it just me, or has activity on this site gone waaay down? What's going on here?
Oh definitely. We would be going backwards. I suppose the good news is, is that the election is still more than 6 months away, plenty of time for things to change again.
I have a funeral on Tuesday during the day and it'd make planning for teaching so much easier if I had a snow day tomorrow but it looks like the snow is stopping. A snow day tomorrow would mean that my co-op would just need to play a video and give my kids a paper explaining their writing assignment.
On the other hand, if I do have school tomorrow, then I get to confront two of my kids for blatant plagiarism.
Got my driver's permit last Thursday.
Drove for the first time on Friday.
It's Monday, and I've already smashed the tail-light on the car.
Thank you. I think that I needed to see this. To remind myself.
Well... I've been gone a bit... so. Yea.
I wish I could summon the inner strength to overcome my anxiety. I could have been a good singer, if I had only believed in and been nicer to myself. instead I focused more others (which isn't a bad thing, I just never learned to give myself a break) but through acts of altruism, I transitioned into a better version of my former self, or at least i believe I embraced a good path. I've grown since my teen years, suxne that shy, lonely and insecure boy. But part of me regrets that I never believed in myself more and took a leap of faith. I know, at 30 I'm not old by any means, and what is age but a number right? Yet I dwell on the things a lot, I over analyse and punish myself. I chastise myself because I seem to almost always be on the cusp of greatness, always on the edge about to take that leap into depths unknown-- putting a hesitant foot forward as I close my eyes, inhale... and jump--only to come crashing down and lose my nerve, I fall flat on my butt, with the disappointed realization I've have yet to climb that mountain and leap into open, tranquil waters. Perhaps one day I might be able to summon the courage and finally, be...free.
Listen people will you endure one more post about my damn kitchen? Because I’m fucking excited y’all! We are officially done!! (By that I mean still need to install drapes but that’s tiny)
I’m a homebody and love hosting friends so for me this is absolute heaven!
Wow, that new kitchen is fantastic and a gigantic improvement. Your new one looks like it's straight out of one of those reality TV shows where they sell million dollar houses. Awesome job!
Must be nice being done!
According to a interior decorator character in The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern by Lilian Jackson Braun one should "never call draperies drapes."
On a personal note... I'm a bit depressed looking at Smurf's kitchen photos. Even the "before" is a million times nicer than any kitchen I've had in years... And, as mentioned before, the kitchen I'm working with now is not only aesthetically horrid, but also only marginally functional. It'd be so nice to have a basic kitchen that worked...and even nicer to have one that was pleasant enough that I actually felt like cooking...
While whining about my problems...
Yesterday I put on a pair of pants before going out...and discovered a hole has appeared on one of the legs. These were the last pair--the absolute last pair--of decent pants in my wardrobe. So now I'm trying to figure out how I can make a trip to a thrift store fit into my budget. I am more than a little depressed...
What if glue was made of horse semen?
You have such a nice home.
I'm really not looking forward to having my wisdom teeth out Thursday. I'm only getting one side done right now, but I'm still not looking forward to it.
When your friend starts making poor life choices but it's not really your place to intervene.
I REALLY WANT TO LISTEN TO "SAME BOAT WE ROW" BY THE RARE AMERICANS
also I'm bored
I’m craving cotton candy
