Okay, a rather tiring day for me today. I’m thinking that I might point form this and go from there. I’ll mention now that it’s been a neutral day in terms of how I feel about it.
I’m with the same teacher for one period but the class has changed. Yesterday I felt much more productive. I was sent out to help the students with their argumentative essay research. One kid chose to argue that Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer. I had to either help him or persuade him to do another subject. I apparently helped. The other girl was doing her essay on gay marriage. YAY ME for having a neutral reaction and actually helping! She said she was for it in ways but against it in others. I think that’s where a lot of people find themselves, and I think it's pretty understandable. Also, I had to seek out another teacher to spend the rest of the afternoon with. I wound up barging in on another teacher I had in high school. She helped me out quite a bit while I was there. So it’s been nice hanging out in her class.
Today, I didn’t get to do very much. I basically sat and listened to a reading of Romeo and Juliet, not my favourite play. Then I listened to a reading of Death of a Salesman. Another one I didn’t really like when I read it. Maybe this time around I’ll like them...
Yup, time for another Feast, this time it’s for Chinese New Year. Oh goodness! I was dishwashing this time, my first time dishwashing a Feast in nearly a year. I’m still in the dog house for walking out of the kitchen the other night. Apparently Helen doesn’t want me and Ed working side by side yet. As far as I'm concerned what happened the 13th is over and done with. Plus, tonight I did the most disgusting thing I've ever done at work. I had to clean the meat grinder. EW! It was full of smooshed shrimp. Kind of made me think of brains that smelled like dead fish... seriously revolting.
I do have to say though, halfway through the night I was really hungry and it was getting really hard to throw out all that food. God it smelled good! The noodles smelled so garlicky delicious. I WANT THEM! Oh, and the ice cream was lovely as well.
They’re all making themselves scarce today. Of course Maggie’s been scarce for a while now. Rochester is back in his clothes, thank goodness. Freud is plotting. Cooper and Mr Plunk are doing... whatever they usually do... and Meeko is sitting with me, very attentively watching Grey’s.
My dad told me that Meeko was sleeping on my mom (she had a blanket) until he heard me come through the gate. He jumped off my mom and met me at the door. He then proceeded to meow like a lunatic and jump into the laundry tub. Yeah, my cat prefers water directly from the tap. He hates his dish.
Anyway, tomorrow I do another few hours at my placement. Kind of curious what will happen. I don’t work again until Sunday so I have a lot of homework to do in the next two days. I had so many lofty goals for this week! Fingers crossed... pft!
Gah! I have the Olympics theme song stuck in my head. Darn you Nikki Yanofsky! Is anyone else enjoying shy Bailey on Grey’s? I LOVE SHY BAILEY! GO BAILEY!
