I've been hired as a 10th grade english teacher at forrest high school. I begin October 9th! I have one honors english class! I can hardly express how OUSTANDING the pay is. Clay finally agreed to marry me if I buy him a lexus.
I put in my two weeks at my current nannying job, and the whole family and I have been crying eversince. This school is known for it's troublemakers. 10th grade= FCAT. Again, I have to leave the family I nanny for after 2.5 years. Clay picks expensive cars!
ps- anyone looking to be a nanny? T/W/R 7:30-5:30 $10 an hour.. .
i've been sick a lot lately. i didn't get to go play water sports yesterday/today with "the gang" (which i was REALLY looking forward to- my first time on a boat!) because i didn't feel well and everyone keeps telling me it's what i'm eating//not eating and i'm trying really hard to just feel better. BUT i did find my STINKY multivitamins in the medicine cabinet and it's back to gagging and holding my nose to get them down until i can't taste them.
dan's back! which is exciting, except i was really looking forward to visiting him/canada with klae this fall. but we ARE (very likely) taking a road trip in december up to ohio to see my dad for the holidays, and we're going to look up some neat vegan restaurants along the way and visit ross in atlanta, etc. etc. and now dan's moving with us to the "unknown destination" next spring/summer so that'll be fun. brooklyn? chicago? seattle? we'll see which school klae gets into!
back to school soon! even though i graduated (and i might have mentioned this before?) i'm going back to get my teaching certification and take some classes that will go towards my masters. i'm a little nervous about taking graduate classes in a subject i'm eager to learn about (secondary english education) with a bunch of 30-something students, but i'll manage and try my best to make it fun.
the dogs are good. the new camera obscura album is adorable and i still love my roommate.
i think my myspace profile must have been featured on the front page or something ridiculous today, because i've never gotten so many "friend requests" from so many odd strangers in my life.
yesterday i was attacked by a mutant duck while out on a walk with two of the kids that i nanny for. to make a long story short, he bit my legs, and nearly followed us the whole way home. i'm completely traumatized, a little over-dramatic about the situation (yes, i cried), but the whole thing really just came out of nowhere. thankfully i ran while pushing the kids in the stroller, and managed to kick the duck several thousand times while he hung onto my jeans.
in preparation for my return from seeing atmosphere in gainesville tomorrow night, i wanted to let everyone know ahead of time that i might come home a thug. or maybe even sooner.. . tonight we celebrate "INVASIANNNNNN" after all.
ps- who's attending? i'd like to go early to take advantage of the ladyspecials!
i think last night was the best monday i've had in a while.
not only did i have a lengthy discussion with a drunken katrina refugee about thomas jefferson, but the night got even better as i met PAT.
PAT: new in town (navy) insists on buying me a drink, though i try my best to ignore him insists on dancing with me (ignore, laugh) KISSES ME IN FRONT OF KLAE asks me to make love with him follows jon arvin (manalanalansan) around with flailing arms
why? we'll never know. PAT was kicked out for being entirely too creepy with the ladies as klae shouts into the microphone: STOP HITTING ON MY GIRLFRIEND CREEP
then, his navy buddy burns my shin with a cigarette, and insists on rubbing my leg until i remove his hand. AND- klae was talking like a black man the entire night.
i'm listening to coldplay, being a silly nostalgic (romantic) tonight. i can't find jeans that are less than five feet too long on me (www.heightmax.com). i miss ashley williams. hell, i miss ashley young.
