1. there was a shooting at the middle school next to my high school, so we went into lockdown.
2. tuesday is my last day at said high school as a full time long term sub, and i'm SO FUCKING HAPPY.
3. one of my students called me a 'stupid bitch' a couple days ago and i suspended her. one of her mates told me today that she's going to court for 'driving without a license' and i just thought 'who's stupid now, huh?'

i hate that place.

What are you reading, _p?

I'm reading A Brief History of Montmaray and even though I usually despise YA I am kind of into it, mostly because I'm having a lot of ~feelings~ about one character in particular. Crying over fictional queers from a book I'm only halfway through: the blog, the life, the motion picture.

I'm reading Naomi Klein's No Logo and I'm looking at life in such a weird (and not good) way.

I may, if things work out, be going to see a play in NYC with my friend in March! I'm really excited. Fingers crossed!

I work in a small town in Eastern PA and one of our local bartenders disappeared last Friday. She was found in the canal. No foul play, but still, it shakes you up.

It's just so sad :( she was a really lovely person. Ugh.
mycenaes 2nd-Feb-2013 12:33 am (UTC)
yes, I heard about that in the local news (I live an hour outside of Philly). :( I'm so sorry for your loss. <3

I'm trying to figure out a workout routine. What would you suggest for someone who's underweight but still needs to lower her cholesterol and in whose family there is a history of high blood pressure? I do need the cardio, but it's weight /gain/ that I want, not weight loss. And I want to build up my triceps and glutes, and tone all my other muscle groups.

Also, how do you make yourself feel sexy and confident, _p? (Without a partner, I mean.)
shortsweetcynic 2nd-Feb-2013 12:39 am (UTC)
ugh - i'm sorry, i started to reply to this and got distracted and replied with my own post.

to answer your question - i've been happy with a combination of cardio (20-30 mins, typically on the elliptical or treadmill) and another 30 of weights. good results all around.

I don't know what generally goes on in these things but

I started reading some travel safety tips to prepare for my Scotland trip later this year, and now I'm paranoid about, like, roving bands of pickpockets. So, what do people here do when they travel overseas? What precautions do you take with your passport and money? I'm thinking about getting one of those belt/wallet things you can wear under your clothes.

And is it better to exchange some money before I leave, or use my debit and credit cards when I get there? I am obviously clueless on this topic and need to read a lot more.
darlahood 2nd-Feb-2013 12:51 am (UTC)
Usually when I travel overseas I drink too much and like to live beyond my means at four star hotels.

Scotland? Roving bands of pick pockets? You'll be lucky if you can understand the locals if you travel outside major city centers. I've been to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, etc.

I usually ask my bank to order me some pounds before I leave. Like $500 worth. Everything else can be put on a credit card. They'll charge you the exchange rate du jour.

My week started out amazing! I was extremely extremely lucky and got last minute tickets to the Phantom of the Opera 25th anniversary performance on Broadway--the only problem with that being that I live in Atlanta and have never really gone anywhere, especially not on a plane. But I miraculously managed to find a fellow Georgia phan who was able to go with me with such short notice, and we had SO MUCH FUN! The show was AWESOME, and New York was AWESOME, and I SAW STARRY NIGHT (and it was AWESOME), and I'm not afraid of planes anymore! I even got a picture with one of the former Broadway Phantoms! There was this big finale and Sarah Brightman and the original director and producer and a bunch of other Phantoms were there and performed, and they shot streamer cannons into the chandelier:

And...then the day after I got home, I lost my beloved cat. ;_;

Lots of tears this week, for both good and bad reasons. ;_;

:( i'm so sorry to hear about Toby :hugs if you want them:

hey _p,
well it's not a 40-hour-a-week-with-benefits job, but the director at the rescue i've been helping at has officially put me on the payroll. it's sort of a "per area" pay - you get $10/area you're assigned to clean. but hey it's money and it's quality kitty time and yay.

oh and cross fingers for our rummage sale tomorrow that we made lots of $$$$. our last rummage sale, we raised a lil over $600. i'd like to see that beat.

My eyes having been causing problems since last Thursday, making me sleep no more than a bad 4-5 hours of sleep a night, so Tuesday I saw an eye doctor. Apparently my eyes went "FU" about me wearing hard contacts (no reason other than wearing them for years). So I now have medication in the form of eyedrops, and I'm blind for another week until my checkup next Friday when I'll get fitted for softer lenses. Since my lenses/eyes were all FINE last checkup, I didn't opt into the EXTRA vision insurance that's somewhat expensive that now would have been totally worth it. So that's gonna hurt, but I just want my eyes to be better. And also not to be so blind anymore. It's seriously not fun how bad my eyes are. =/

But my eye doctor is awesome! And totally figured it out right away.

Dear C-----:

Upon evaluating your student teaching application for Fall 2013, we have determined that you are conditionally eligible pending the satisfactory completion of the following:

· Successful completion of [class I am in this semester]

Your resume, coursework form, and autobiographical statement will be sent to a school district for consideration for the Fall 2013 semester. etc etc etc

most importantly, this means I managed to not fuck up the 8 zillion page application
