Just drove out to Glendale (ugh my new daily 6am commute starting Monday) to pick up some music from my cooperating teacher and he had peaced out already. I went and scoped out the classroom though, so I know where it is. The building is old and smelly, and apparently my new cooperating teacher has an affinity for bald eagles and leaving early even though he’s expecting someone. This should be….educational.
The listicles that are all “(n) things only [insert personality trait/interest/occupation/location] people will understand” have gone too far. I just saw one called “18 Struggles of Having an Outgoing Personality but Actually Being Shy and Introverted”. That just sounds like a regular person?
I have so much personal happiness right now; I have a nephew (found out today!) arriving this year, graduating, awesome marriage, friends, pets, nice house, getting healthy.
But the fucked-up-ness of the world is getting me down. It’s just so heavy and nobody seems to care, and I wish there was more I could do.
Life hack: when you get a hankering for snacks, go buy some shoes. Strut in your new shoes. But then also have some snacks.
