I just wanted do a quick update. I am heading out to Carbondale, Illinois to go see the totality and my boyfriend and I are super excited. It seems like we have gotten the house and we are all pretty excited about that as well. Now I just have to get this job Friday and everything will go as planned.
So today I went out looking for a house again with my friends and we think we have found one that will meet all of our needs. It even has a dishwasher, Jacuzzi jet tub, and a really nice sized basement. Fingers crossed that we can try and sign papers for it tomorrow. I even got an interview tomorrow to hopefully go back into teaching. I missed being able to do things and go places so this new found freedom is actually pretty nice. On August 21st there is a total solar eclipse and my boyfriend and I are driving 2 states over to see it in full. Super excited.
Only downside to this trip for the eclipse… I have to get all of my school work done 3 days early because I will not have time or internet to do so. I am looking at 2 long chapters, 2 discussions, 6 responses, and a paper on Human Memory. I can do it though.
I have also realized that between proper dosing of cannabis and this blog, I have a form of peace. I feel much better being able to type out everything that I need to. I can even look at how I am coping and act from it. I really hope that this continues because I know that therapy never truly helped me other than give me coping mechanisms. By this point, I am fairly sure I know just about every mechanism and it is more about using them than struggling to figure them out. It is peculiar however that I am doing better writing a blog because I never did well with journals but, I will not complain.

So, in an earlier post I talked about how my boyfriend and I are needing to figure some stuff out and I will no longer be only a student. Yesterday, I put in one application and today I was set up for an interview! I am so excited. The position is to be an assistant teacher at a learning center. Although, I prefer being a lead teacher, I am super excited regardless. I cannot wait to see and work with children again! I thought it was hilarious that this comes out right after my post about why I want to be a teacher. Things are looking up. Now to figure out what to do about our living situation. Current idea is to see if the family would be willing to let us keep the house since grams is no longer living here. We shall see.
Anyway, thanks for reading
So, I have a friend who is an apprentice at a fairly prestigious shop (at least in my area). She has decided to give me a free tattoo to help her practice. I have been watching her work: her drawings, tattoos, and concepts. She is doing really well. On 9/11 I am getting it. I thought I would get a tattoo for my love of teaching on my forearm.
It is going to have a watercolor background with an adorable owl at the top. The middle/bottom is going to have “Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning” and a small apple to the side of the lettering. Now, normally I wouldn’t get a quote but, there are few tattoos for teachers and I have always loved this quote. I feel that it is a good reflection on how I feel about teaching. I have also decided that the arm that I put it on, is going to be dedicated to my teaching. The plan is to get a small tattoo each year that fits each group of kids. That was all. 🙂

Today was a pretty good day; we had some friends that stayed the night last night. When we got up, we all sat around and played a bunch of games and got to talk and hang out. They even got me to try my first taste of brandy; all I can really say was it burned. Nothing really came out of that other than them all laughing at my face… I don’t drink.
We followed the day up with partying, playing more role playing games, and getting food out all together. Poor girl (the waitress) had a rough night. When we went in, (at 3am mind you) she had roughly 4 other parties and she was by herself. One of my friends also decides to get a 7×7 sandwich from Steak n Shake. After all of our order was taken, I counted up that we (the 4 of us) had all just asked her to tell the one and only cook that an order of 4 people just got 22 patties. The cook was not too happy but, we did our best to keep her in good spirits. We even left her a $15 dollar tip to try and apologize. We then went home and my boyfriend and I had a really nice fire and time to play with our dog. It definitely made up for the last few days.
Thank you for reading.
Today was a much better day. I just finished my sociology class and started my childhood psychology class today. I finished my previous class with a 98% A which made me pretty happy. (I go to an online school due to my 24/7 ‘job’ as a caretaker) Childhood psychology should be an easy class for me thankfully. I spent many years learning about psychology and biology which is the basis of this class along with development. I only have two more classes before I go back in the field and boy am I excited! I also had fun playing a tad geeky game called World of Darkness. World of Darkness is a game similar to D&D but, it is focused on horror and role-play more than turn based combat. We have been playing this particular story-line for a little over 2 years and we are coming to the end of the game.
I did have one downside however because I managed to injure myself yesterday. Now, I should elaborate first on why this would happen; I have something called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. This, at least in my type (III), causes me to be hyper-mobile and I dislocate very easily and I have to train my muscles to make up for my joints. (My shoulders dislocate, or at least sublux, 4-6 times a day. Think of my joints as an old overstretched rubber band.) I was working out at the gym and I went to the dead-lift bar and I forgot to remove the weights before lowering the bar below my head. (Our gym has an assist bar that has the barbell set on cables to make sure that the person doesn’t get injured when they are without a spotter) This caused my back to dislocate in several places along with my shoulders.
Is there any questions you have for me or anything you would like to see me write about? Let me know! Thank you for reading, have a wonderful night/day.
