Drama King, Itchy Heads, or Church of Satan

Im torn about what to write about....Do I continue with my week of teaching experiences, and NOT getting head lice (for those of you who were concerned...no one was more relieved than I)...

Do I write about about my friend who is the king of all that is dramatic...for those of you who think that I am dramatic....ive got nothing on this guy...LD was ready to kill him last night while he was aksing for advice on my msn. (He didnt call or text her today by the way LD!!! Progress)

Or do I write about this guy, and the recent updates.....Yes. Thats the one. Lets discuss him.

So...we are all aware that I was looking for him for like 6 weeks, and talked to someone we know mutually asking to pass along the message that I was looking for "guy 1"...

Well, guy 1, after a year, calls me on his own. He had no idea that I had spoken to guy 2, or that I was looking for him. This was a FANTASTIC surprise....how insynch we are to be thinking of one another at the same time like that....

So we talk, and catch up...for like 4 hours. Things have changed about him, things have changed about me....the feelings, and the connection are obviously still there...Well some sort of feeling...we havent discussed the possibility of anything as of yet. We're still just "friends" at this point.

We fall comfortably into familiar patterns with one another, which feels so amazing, and safe and nice. But the entire time, in the back of my mind, i cant help but think of the way he used to be...This will take time to relearn who he is...i am aware of that.

But after talking for one day, and then randomly through out the next 5 days, we dont have much of a chance to get reacquainted....Things start to happen...they make me sad, and scared. Emotionally, I know how hurting this guy can be. We havent spoken in a year...and all of a sudden he's back, and its feeling comfortable...TOO comfortable.

There is one peice of information that he passed on though, that I found to be quite interesting. Hes considering joining the "Church of Satan". This is new news. The church,....of Satan. He has been influenced this past year by the band Alkaline Trio....

So last night...me and LD decide to look up this band and listen to what they have to say. We ALSO decide to read up on the Church of Satan. Cant say they dont have a sense of humor, thats for sure...

Check it out. Opinions please...what does everyone think of this....

Blogger Confessional© Stupid things we do as children

As a child, I loved this show, and of course am jacked about the movie, that is now not being released until almost 2009.

When I was a kid, every house that I ever went to, I always checked the basement for Fraggle Holes. If I have been to your house, I have looked. Trust me. I knew it was a show...but a part of me so wanted it to be real, that I always checked...just in case.

One time, I was at someone's house, and they had a small hole in one of the walls...i was so excited, and asked them about it, not implying it might have been a fraggle hole, because that would have been ridiculous...but they proceeded to inform me that it was a crack in the foundation, and that they dug out all the loose concrete.

I was devastated.

Feet Magicians and Binge Drinking.

Well..I made it.

I wasnt sure there for a day or two if I was going to get through, but we did. That's 2 more A's to add to my transcript.

I'll spare you all of the horrendously boring things we talked about in class, becuase to be perfeclyt honest, I only remember...actually, I remember quite a bit. Did you know that if a child doesnt learn to read in grade one, they only have a One in Eight chance of ever catching up to grade level after grade one, without extra measures? Ya...we did a lot of work. But i'm glad its over.

Now, on the last two nights of school, I decided to stay at the hotel with a group of 6 people in my class. Now, we had to get up for school at 7, but since we were going out that night,a nd werent planning on being home until late, there was no way that I was going to sleep...id never get up.

So, we decide to go to this bar, that has (get this) Line dancing on thursday nights....I put my foot dodwn about line dancing, and blah blah blah, they made me go anyway. I was expecting the bar to be horrendous, but when we got there, it was insane!!!

There were at least 600 people there, and ya, it was country, but you couldnt even hear the music, because you were too busy focusing on what other people were doing. We had a fantastic time. Those people who were there were so hard core about line dancing, if you didnt know what you were doing, you got danced into a wall, and were safer off the floor. After being out there for less than 5 minutes, I decided that I was better off watching (which was still fun), and when this guy asked me why I wasnt out there dancing, I said that they reminded me of Feet Magicians. I couldnt figure out what they were doing, and im better off just watching. If you learn how they do it, it takes all the intrigue and mystery out of it.

So that was that. We stayed at the bar until about 3, got home, drank some more, and I watched barnyard while everyone else slept. I think I got about half hour of sleep. Infact, i went to bed wednesday morning at 2:30 am, and only slept 4 and a half hours until I went to bed saturday morning at 1:30am. Those last few days were insane, and filled with drinking.

I only have to work 5 days this week, until my placement starts on the 22nd....

Im here...im here.

Talk about crazy busy weeks.

I cant believe the last time I blogged was december 27th!!!

but you know how christmas goes....

and now here I am...4 days into the year, and ive been at school since the 2nd.

We go everyday. Up at 6:30, out the door by 7:10. To school for 8....in class until 4:30.

and then not to mention that this course is only 5 days (we finish saturday...ewww)....and I have 5 huge assignments. One of which I should be finishing right now, but stopped just to say hi....To you. My lovely faithfuls.

Starting monday, I have another week long course, but we finish friday, instead of saturday. I took two weeks off work...i have no social life....I called Miss Ash, and LD, to see what they were doing satuday night. Its my only night that I can stay out past 11, before turning into a pumpkin. Sunday is the only day that I can sleep past 6:30...and I want a night off.

after working my ass off these past 5 days, and then having to start all over again monday...I think I deserve one night to drink.....and drink I shall. :o)

So if you dont hear from me again until the 12th, dont take it personally, dont be sad....no one else will hear from me until then either.
