I woke up to go to work, but I read my text messages and the class has been cancelled. I wish I had checked my messages yesterday.
So, I'm here losing time because I took a shower and I don't want to go to bed with my hair wet. So I'm here looking at memes and hearing cheerful, uplifting songs.
I'm glad I found this job. I really like to teach when I get a student that's motivated and wants to learn. Some people ask me if it's boring or tiresome to teach basics. It isn't. I love the "ah, I get it!" face they make. It's actually the teen that's sent by his mom or the employee sent by his company and that don't want to learn that's frustrating.
In case my ramblings are boring, I will recommend http://mlpaudiobooks.net
which is full of audiobooks. I'm thankful for the MLP subreddit for providing it to me.
Anyway, to end this entry, here's this funny song that I was listening to yesterday.
My fav restaurant closed for good and I've been looking for a new vegan/vegetarian place. I found one that's good, but not amazing, but close and cheap. So there's that. I still feel bad about the other one because it was super cheap, delicious, and one of the few places left where you sit with strangers and make conversation with them. The owner was kinda crazy, always talking about how the government put a chip in your head to control you or stories like that.
Aside from that, still writing, still making new friends, still enjoying life. Sometimes I feel so happy that I feel sad that one day everything and everyone will not be there anymore. Yeah, I'm weird like that.
Job is good and picking up. So that's another plus.
Have to write a humor article for tomorrow. Still no ideas, I just know that I don't want to do politics. I'm writing a paper about the election already but I don't want to hear supporters of any party or candidate for a while, if possible.
I was upset yesterday when I couldn't afford something for my dad. But that made me want to come home and work more. I guess that's the best attitude, except without getting angry. Still progress still progress.
Still haven't watched a MLP episode in two weeks. And now I borrowed Lord of the Flies. And I still have to finish that photography course. On the plus size, I am learning a useful thing or two. I take better pics of my dogs. I wish I could share them here, but I don't know how.
Oh well, be happy. Thanks for reading my ramblings.
There are so many things I'd like to write about. Lately I've been thinking about writing about the elections.
Not that I care much about politics, but I just think that these elections were different. It was an amazing event where I could watch my favorite animals (humans) in their element and study their behavior.
Jokes aside, I think there is much more than just politics and economy that was in play in this election. I think there was some issues regarding evolution, tribalism, pack animal behavior, cultural values, technology, and maybe even spirituality and cognitive science.
The scarce resource for me is time. I'm behind on my writing, I want to finish my first novel. And I'm also working on getting my adventure module for the Tiny Horsies RPG published. Many people don't know that writing something is half of the job. Producing it, placing it on Amazon and DrivethruRPG (who is taking their god dammed time) and promoting it is the other half of the job. And then there's my first card game after that.
Fortunately, I was just hired to give some classes, so that'll help me a bit and I was just contacted by the University of Illinois to write a paper for them. How cool is that?
I wonder if anyone ever reads this stuff, but at least it allowed me to get some things off my chest.
Oh, and one of my favorite Youtubers sent me a video of her music. That really cheered me up.
And I've met a group of bronies and we're going to be roleplaying online too. I haven't done that in ages.
Ok, erratic blabber done.
Have a wonderful day.
I will post in my entries things I like, preferably about MLP, but not exclusively.
So, here be, the brony cumbia playing Tricks Up My Sleeve
