First Day; Also Karma

I go to work in about 90 minutes. It’s District Training this week, and there are things. Things to worry for. Not very many. But still. A list. Things to be Nervous About 1. What am I wearing? 2. My hair. It’s notorious for not cooperating. 3. Do I bring lunch? Will they let me […]

Things I Did Not Do While Substituting This Week

1. Write. Yeah, nothing. 2. Publicly mock. I threatened to, but it never happened. (As in, Dear Beginning Drama Classes, When you read your parts in these plays, don’t be lame.

It’s More Stuff, at last.

Do you ever feel the need, the deep, deep NEED to be poetic or intellectual or (dare I say it?) satisfying when you write? I do feel that need, but I try to push it to the side as often as possible. So, what I’m saying is, although I could astound y’all with my reamarkability, […]

Catching

Name a cliche with “catch” in it, and I’m trying to do it. Up? Yep. Catching up. With my life that’s trying to run away without me. A Break? Yep. I’m always trying to catch a break. A Tiger by the Tail? Why not? My Breath? Always. (But so far I’m not catching a wave […]
