so, had my first day subbing.
I was NOT born to be a teacher.

Those women have their classes under control! I walked in and it spun out of control into chaos.

Miss! Jimmy hit me!
Miss Kristina! He's not supposed to do that till after lunch!
Miss! Where's our real teacher?
Miss! Do you wanna touch our pet spider?
Miss Kristina! Your last name is funny!

*sigh* the last bell of the day was a relief. But, it's not all bad. It's about half and half right now.
Though, I will be pleasantly surprised and particularly elated if I land the job that i'm interviewing for on Monday. It's for an office assistant at an Elem. school on the north side of Fort Worth. Here's to hoping and wishing and praying!

I use the exclamation mark WAY too often. But, it's how I talk...not so much yelling but alot of my sentences end up getting louder at the end. Aldo is constantly telling me "I'm right here...there's no need to yell". I just don't realize i'm doing it. *shrug*

Other than that, life is floating along. A bit tight on cash, but when hasn't that been a problem, eh? At least Valentine's Day is coming up. Cards have been sent, and the gifts I ordered should be coming in today. This is gonna be fun!

Book club is also doing REALLY well. I have to admit it was one of Aldo's BEST ideas. :) This Sunday we're meeting at The Love Shack, an outdoor bar/grill/hamburger place where we will be discussing our latest book "The Dispossesed" by Urssula K Le Guin. It's been slow going... I mean, it's a good book and has a fair amount of thinking involved. In fact, Zanzibar - you might REALLY enjoy this book. Aldo has been totally in love with it, but it's been a sort of forced reading until the last 3ish chapters for myself. I don't mind if it's a heavy handed book, but I (personally) just need a set story line to propell myself along the literary waters. I can't read biographies and I can't read technical or political books for this reason. I mean, I CAN it's just not my first pick of the day. That's all. Since book club is meeting at the Love Shack day before V-Day, I think i'm going to make cupcakes. Red Velvet cupcakes, cause....those are awesome.

BTW: highly recommending the show Cupcake Wars to everyone at Nutang. It's awesome.

I hope I enjoy my job whatever it is as much as those guys.
Plus, it's an amazing show. I'm watching the Jaws Special.

Tonight i'm going to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. I'm excited. I completely want a turkey leg and to touch a Bull. I'm just sayin'.

Life is ok if not good.

I haven't substituted yet, and it's mostly because i'm scared to actually go to it.
Send me good vibrations.

Still thinking about my Valentine's Day gift for Aldo. Here's to thinking.

Not alot going on other than that. Just thought i'd update.

about to head into work for a VERY full Saturday.
The Stock Show and Rodeo is in town and they're across the street from where I work.
This means that when I come in and leave work i'm greeted by the mooing of brahmas, goats, pigs and the occasional Cowboy. Sometimes I love living in Texas.
Plus, this year my job is working with Stockshow so I get in for FREE! Everything but the Rodeo.

Life is....
well, it's still going. In a good way I suppose. School was simulatenously awesome and crappy at the same time. The semester didn't work out for me because of...issues...but it's in the process of being ironed out, which is something. Mom and dad are doing well, and I've actually been talking to my little brother alot more (my favorite improvement!)

Oh! I also have two jobs now. The one at the museum (which I talked about above) and I'm now a substitute teacher for my local District. I start on Monday. WIsh me LOTS of luck. I may need it.
