My body is ... unhappy. »
I had a really challenging day, yesterday, and thinking about it has paralyzed me all freaking afternoon.
Normally, I'd take the time to write it out pretty-like, try to find a moral, try to flex my prose-muscle. But I have shit to do: I'm going to tell the slapped together version in an effort to get it out of my… »
When I was in my masters program, I started quasi-dating this guy. He was kind of a tool (in retrospect) and liked to make criticisms of my playing after rehearsals (NO!), but he would wait after my classes and bring me food. He had nice eyes and thought highly of his opinions about music. He told me I was good at the… »
I'm basically going to live-blog my emotional melt-down on this shiteously long, ridiculously unpleasant Thursday afternoon. Right now: »
I was horsing around on a neighboring forum (Don't hate - a girl's gotta branch out!) and somehow the, "Who would play [this commenter] in a movie" game got started.
One of my favorite former GTers suggested a series of Kirsten Dunst characters as me.
If my students were playing this game and stuck with this actress,… »
The mischievous/gossipy bitch in me is thrilled that one of GT's hoo-ha's is all up on the main page, having sex with foodstuffs. »
I want to type out melodramatic things that aren't true, in the literal sense. They're just ... the closest thing words can make to the things I want to express.
I'm stuck on a feeling. The words that go with that feeling make people panicky and upset, and sometimes bring consequences of which no one is fond. But it's… »
I have a great idea! Let's teach students about diversity by having them read one article about privilege in a gender/racial context, and then have them write an essay about what they learned. That won't result in mind-melting commentary or outright heinous thoughts. Nope. I'm sure everyone will read a twenty year old… »
There's a job opening on campus.
It's for ... coordinating programs for incoming freshmen. This program is the one that technically employes me (via my department) in the fall semesters. I'm not sure that it has much of anything to do with my eventual career path, but it pays approximately 14 manatees and it's y'know.… »
IT'S THE MOST WONDER-FUL TIIIIIIIIIIIIIME .... OF THE YEAR. (Can you sense the sarcasm?) It's the last day to drop a class! »
I'm having a hard time keeping it positive, lately. This week is far superior to the week before spring break, but it still takes focus and concentration.
The following anecdote is to lower my blood pressure and not to ask for advice. I need to vent and there are no adults within earshot.
I have this student. This… »
Welcome to "I Don't Know How You Eat All That: An Online Response to an Ongoing Offline Situation."
In today's episode, I ate an entire salad. It was, you know, a big salad, because I'm a growing girl, I eat a small breakfast, and ... I was hungry? (In future episodes, we will explore the need that a grown-assed woman… »
For those of you who are genuinely interested in my comings and goings, I'm sorry about the teaser/trailer this morning. It's been a really long day and if I'd let it wait, I would have been too tired to be excited anymore, and I'd never have told anyone.
(My therapist says I always talk myself out of good things, too, … »
Something potentially (professionally) awesome just happened.
I have an audition in a few hours, if I can survive the post spring-break snow (?!). But something else potentially awesome just happened.
I CAN'T TALK BECUZ I HAVE TO GO TEACH MY CLASS BUT I WON'T BE THIS EXCITED ON THE OTHER END OF IT SO I WANTED TO CAPS… »
We know some people through a place where you have to be nice to people, even if they're not necessarily your bag. I'm getting better at recognizing these things and doing the pantomime of what I'm supposed to do, although sometimes (especially around semester breaks) I get grumpy and I don't like it, and I say rude… »
Is it a semester break, or a sports season? Or a semester break that happens to occur during a sports season?
It must be time for this ridiculous gif: »
