No idea what to write about today except for you to say that I am incredibly stressed out at work. I am on my lunch break right now and I’m trying to decide whether to eat or hide my office and nap or try to get some exercise.  I have 1 million students emailing me that I can’t possibly get to.  I’m working a little bit late twice this week, which is kind of annoying.
 I might be going to an audition for a Spanish language singing competition/talent show with my friend this weekend, so I guess that would be pretty exciting.  It is a long weekend because of MLK day. 
I definitely was not prepared to go back to work this week.  Tuesday hit me like a ton of bricks.
 I am having fun laughing at lots of inappropriate jokes about Donald Trump’s extra-curricular Russian activities. I am not sure how comfortable I am with the possible involvement of our president elect and foreign country trying to sabotage our country’s election. That’s creepy as far as I’m concerned.
I did not watch Pres. Obama’s farewell address last night, but caught some snippets later.  I couldn’t take the pain of it. It is so hard to contrast how classy he and his family are to the Trumps.
I did watch the season finale of  Leah Remini Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E, which let me tell you is super fascinating, especially since I used to live in Clearwater where Scientology headquarters are.

Today there was a protest on campus from clerical staff and it took a long time to get in, like an extra half an hour. They actually blocked up the front entrance and the back entrance. It was crazy, but first amendment rights or whatever.

It’s the second day of school for the quarter.  My class actually doesn’t start until tomorrow.  I have like twenty students signed up right now.

 I’ve had back-to-back appointments this afternoon. I am so busy this week I have my own class, a presentation for somebody else’s class and a pre-health panel that I’m doing with my intern.

Last night, I went to see Princess Mononoke on the big screen. It was really great, but a nightmare getting in.  They didn’t have my reservation, so I ended up just buying a new pair of tickets, which sucked.  And my husband’s pretzel was awful.  So there.

I hope I have time to clean my incredibly disgusting apartment tonight.

So far even with all the rain we’ve had we haven’t had any significant flooding or debris or anything up the Mountain. There was a little mini slide and maybe some rocks in the road but so far so good. Hubby was very concerned and made me get batteries and bottled water and everything last week.

I am super looking forward to the live action version of Beauty and the Beast in March. I know Emma Watson can’t sing like Paige O’Hara, but I still think it’ll be lots of fun.

Peace Out

At work, this is where I post from, don’t judge me. It’s Friday afternoon and class isn’t even in session, but I still have to be here.
This is the view from my apartment , I told you I would keep gloating about that.
And this is a picture of Venom the spider, who needs crickets.
I am foaming at the mouth with jealousy over multiple friends/family traveling abroad. Which I know is a very privlegie thing for Americans, but I’m still jelly. There is some family drama associated with one of these trips. Not sure I want to address it. Of course, I would be perfectly happy just going to Disneyland.
I was searching through journals to follow by common interest, then I started to look randomly. I accidently pulled up a random pee porn journal. Nope.
You might hear from me more over the weekend, because I am taking my laptop home.

Whee! This is so fun. Okay, so what would you like to know about me?
I’ve been married for like 8/9 years. I have a Master’s Degree in Education. I live in the most beautiful place in the world, off the Monterey Bay. 
^_^ I will continue to gloat about this. 
I’m updating my syllabus, because classes start on Monday. Not that I want to.
You all are super interesting!

I'm baaaack

I am currently sitting at a coffee shop because the power went out at my work. It’s incredibly cute, like something out of Portlandia. I don’t live in Portland, but where I am in California is culturally pretty similar. It’s just a quick pop culture reference that says I’m surrounded by hipsters. I’m supposed to be “working from home”, but that’ll never happen. I share a studio apartment with my husband, a cat, a dog and a spider. When we lived in the Midwest, we had a two bedroom, two bath apartment with a garage, but we could never afford that here. I work at a large selective public university, which I feel like is something they only do here. I used to have a LiveJournal, like a million years ago, and I’ve been missing it lately. There was a certain amount of fandom creepiness and drama that I don’t miss, but short Facebook statuses, leave a lot to be desired in terms of actually knowing what is going on in someone’s life.
