Back to School…. Back to School….
August 22, 2011 Leave a comment
I was hoping that I would post some amazing summer vacation photos and such, but time got away from me. I lost my teaching position to cut backs in the Texas State Government, spent all summer trying to obtain a position, and ended up working back at Hobby Lobby in the Framing Department, and re-applied as a Substitute Teacher in the Cypress-Fairbanks School District, and I’ll work part-time at night at Hobby Lobby to pay off a car I had purchased, because my trustworthy 1995 Honda Odyssey Van went to see St. Peterbuilt at the pearly garage gates in the sky. I ended up purchasing a 2004 Toyota Matrix, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It doesn’t need much work, but I am planning on doing some major engine and exterior remodeling on the car very soon (it’s so great to be dating a mechanic!!).
Michigan Trip 2011
My trip to Michigan was amazing, and I’ll plan on doing a post about that now that I’ll have some down time during classes to work on stuff like that. I’ll talk about some amazing vintage stores, great foods, and of course my friends. I’ll do this while watching the students do their busy work. Yes, it sounds a bit lazy, but for the most part I’ll be subbing at my old school, and those kids’ listen to me…I hope….
Wedding 2012 Countdown begins as the school year starts, my sister’s wedding is in May, and we’re now starting the final countdown for floral arrangements, dresses, shoes, weight-loss, hair (if I have any left), dates, and surprise wedding festivities the boy and I are arranging with some friends of ours. I’m on keyboards, The boy on lead guitar, our friend Jimmy on bass, and we still need a rhythm guitarist and a drummer, if you live in the Jersey Village area of Houston, Texas, and can play either instrument, just let me know. You have to have an interest in all different types of music from Tejano to Indie Rock, we’re going to rock their socks off! It’s a surprise, so don’t tell anyone! I’ll keep you posted on the wedding details, the plans, the dresses, the weight-loss, the song list for surprise concert and any other tidbits of fun wedding related activities. If all goes well, we may become a wedding band and do everything from Tex-Mex weddings to same-sex weddings to Klingon weddings.
A Paranormal Library
I spent all summer reading and listening to Podcasts. I’m currently addicted to Jim Harold’s Paranormal Podcast, Campfire, Paranormal Report, and Weird News Radio. I’m trying to save up for his Paranormal Plus club for the 79.95 price for a whole year…I hope I can get it.
Anyway, check him out, and while listening to his podcasts, he has authors and such come up and give a premise on their books. From there, I’ve been stock piling numerous amounts of books that I have found, and I’ve been making my own paranormal reference library picking authors I like from the suggestions on the Paranormal Podcast, and either purchasing them at Half Price Books, or on my Nook, depending on the price of course! In any case, Every Friday, I’ll pick one of these books to do a post on, and give my review of them, and others that I have found on my own.
Other podcasts I like are
Coast to Coast – there are some art bell classics updated on ITunes for free, other than that you do have to pay.
That’s the most of this update I’ll be doing, I’ll start posting everyday while I”m subbing, letting you guys know how it feels to go back to substitute teaching, the job search, everything that can possibly be me.
Dreamers, what are your back to school plans?
